The timing of the PAKISTAN AIR FORCE Inter Squadron Armament Competition is also very significant at this crucial moment where the tensions between PAKISTAN and its coward and filthy neighbor india are at its peak due to the illegal annexation of indian Occupied Kashmir by the terrorist and coward indian government.

The total siege, blockade and curfew of indian Occupied Kashmir has entered in to the 80th and yet the coward indian forces afraid to lift the siege. All the Tri-Armed Forces of PAKISTAN have already begun the preparation to go to a full-scale Kinetic war with its coward neighbor over the issue. The PAKISTAN AIR FORCE Inter Squadron Armament Competition could also be linked to those preparations as well.
