Pakistani JF-17’s Are Flaunting Kill Marks of Mig-21 and SU-30MKI

Images of Pakistan Air Force’s (PAF) JF-17 fighter jets with kill marks of Indian Air Force’s Mig-21 Bison and SU-30MKI have appeared on social media. The jets were shot down in the air strike conducted by PAF on 27th February in response to the Indian intrusion in Balakot.

Unconfirmed reports suggest that Indian jets were shot down by Beyond Visual Range (BVR) missiles by Squadron Leader Hassan Siddiqui and Wing Commander Nauman Ali Khan.

Kill marks or victory marks are symbols painted on the side of an aircraft to represent success in aerial engagements. Kill marks also serve as morale boosters and are a symbol of pride for the squadron.

These kills are not the first by JF-17, on 19th June 2017 an Iranian reconnaissance drone was shot down in Pakistan air space in Balochistan.

India Still in Denial

Indian Air Force is claiming victory in the aerial dog fight since February the 27th. They insist that no SU-30MKI was lost in the battle. Indians further claim that Wing Commander Abhinandan shot down a PAF F-16 jet with a Mig-21, before going down himself.

Indian media has recently shown images of cloth patches showing IAF’s 51st squadron as Falcon Slayers and the SU-30MKI squadron as AMRAAM dodgers. IAF has however failed to provide any evidence behind these self-proclaimed titles.

  • Wow! What a way to commit hate mongering and incitement then expect the neighbour to remain calm and peaceful?
    And we claim that India imposed all wars on us. RAW is involved in terrorism. etc. etc.
    Hue tum dost jis ke dushman uss ka aasman kyun ho.

    • Fact is those planes were shot while violating our airspace and in response to previous violation and counts as acheivement in non biased quarters around the world. As professionals, PAF has the right to Celebrate their accomplishments. Not sure why you consider it as hate mongering!!

  • I am pretty sure that the Indians would have created a new “god” or hailed the Nandan guy as a “god” if he shot down the F-16. They would probably also make a temple for him or something similar to it. Instead they flaunt the idea of the aircraft being shot down enough so that they can divert the shame of the two aircrafts they lost as well as the shame of their squadron being caught!

          • People like you create mess for your own nation, when they speak, write, express without thinking and make themselves a joke. 11 dislikes of your comment should be self guidance for you to withdraw the comment. And BTW, deleting the comment means withdrawing it. I would request Admin, to delete this comment, if this guy doesn`t do it.

    • Your comment is highly insensitive and derogatory towards Hindus. I am a Hindu living in Pakistan. I am a proud Pakistani like any one else here. Linking religion to politics is deplorable. Well, I will end my comment by saying god bless you and Pakistan Zindabad.
