AF releases radar images to rebut Pakistan's claim of not losing F-16 jet
New Delhi, Apr 8, 2019 Stating that it has credible information and evidence with regard to shooting down of Pakistan Air Force's (PAF) F-16 fighter jet, the Indian Air Force (IAF) on Monday released radar images and rebuted Pakistan’s claim that it hadn’t lost a US-manufactured F-16 fighter jet in the February 27 aerial dogfight.
"The IAF has more credible information and evidence that is clearly indicative of the fact that PAF has lost one F-16 in the air action. But due to security and confidentiality concerns we are restricting the information being shared in public domain," Assistant Chief of Air Staff (Operations) Air Vice Marshal RGK Kapoor said.
Last week sources in the IAF had said it had evidence in the form of radio-transmission intercepts of the Pakistan Air Force F-16 strike package but would not place this evidence in public domain due to security and confidentiality concerns.
