The Pakistan Air Force has purchased a whole F-16 squadron from Jordan, Pakistani media report. Without the pilots and ground crews of course.

The aircraft, 12 F-16AM and a single F-16BM of the Block 15 standard, will start operations in March this year and is hoping to keep them airborne for the next 20 years. The PAKAF already flies 63 F-16s of various versions.

It is not clear yet whether the ex-Jordanian Vipers are from the batch of sixteen Belgian Air Component and 8 Royal Netherlands Air Force F-16s the Southwest Asian country received in 2008.
