Uh, Hello, There Are No CFTs
The Pakistan government’s official new agency APP released the above photograph on October 13 to coincide with the rolling out of the first batch of 18 F-16C/D Block-52 fighters from Lockheed-Martin’s Fort Worth facilities. Obviously they didn’t check what the hell they were putting out. The F-16s that Pakistan is getting do not have conformal fuel tanks (CFTs). So far, F-16s of only the UAE, Israel and Greece have CFTs. The PAF is a professional fighting force. Their idiotic government shouldn’t make them look bad by pulling moronic ones like this.
