India hands over evidence of Pakistan using F-16s in the air skirmish to USA

India also has radar signatures of F-16s but it will not share it with the US as it will compromise the security of the Indian Air Force.

According to a report in the Hindustan Times, India has shared vital evidence of Pakistan’s use of F-16s in the attempted strike against India after the Balakot airstrikes. As per the signed MoU between Pakistan and the US, Pakistan can use the fighter jets only for action against terror and not for aggression against other countries.

In the aftermath of the Pulwama attack by Pakistan based Jaish-e-Muhammad terror group, in which 40 CRPF personnel lost their lives, India had conducted airstrikes deep inside Pakistan, in Balakot, and killed many terrorists belonging to JeM terror outfit. In response to this, Pakistan had attempted to carry out air strikes against India’s military assets in Jammu & Kashmir.

Pakistan had reportedly used F-16s in this operation which were promptly chased down by India’s patrol fleet and in the ensuing dogfight, India’s Mig-21 bison flown by Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman managed to down one of the F-16s before his fighter jet crashed in the PoK region.

India also has radar signatures of F-16s but it will not share it with the US as it will compromise the security of the Indian Air Force.

As per the report, India also has details of the Pakistani pilot who was flying the falcon that got crashed. Pakistan, on the other hand, had vehemently denied the involvement of falcons in their operation, claiming that they had used Chinese made JF-17s in their operation.
