Front Cover
Shaheen Foundation, 2000 - History - 414 pages
The PAF has a long history of professional excellence. During the past decade the PAF distinguished itself in the Afghan War but at the same time the force was severely hit by the Pressler restrictions. However, human ingenuity coupled with wise leadership contained the damage caused by these restrictions and ensured that the fighting force stayed at its optimum best. This is the first official history of the PAF and includes information on its organization, aircraft, bases, and squadrons, with full details of its battles during the Afghan War.
