III. Requested the sale of AH-1Z Viper attack helicopters to replace the AH-1F/S Cobras 


A devastatingly handsome (and lethal) beast, AH-1Z Viper attack helicopters.
It is likely that Pakistan will exercise the option for the total 18 extra F-16s or buy more surplus ones from the US. Many would say this as the diplomacy of the COAS, but still there something to observe.  Pakistan those AH-1Z Viper attack helicopters, because for both type of war scenario of Pakistan Army, in the east or north-west, they need these attack birds very urgently. 

Recently Pakistan approaches firmly with Russian firms to acquire Mil Mi-35 HIND-E attack choppers in a countable number from Russia.
