Pakistan has received the first of the four Saab-2000 airborne early warning and control (AWAC) aircraft from Sweden as part of the air force’s plan to modernise its fleet and enhance its air power.

The AWAC aircraft will be able to detect other aircraft flying at high and medium altitudes, being equipped with the latest technology.

Equipped with a state-of-the-art system, the aircraft will be able to detect objects flying at lower levels over land and sea at extended ranges, as well as can detect surface targets over sea.

The PAF has become one of the few air forces in the world to posses airborne early warning capability, with the acquisition of this aircraft.
