The Pakistani Air Force (PAF) received the first three of 18 new F-16 Fighting Falcon jet fighters on 26 June from the US Air Force as part of a $1.4bn deal.

The remaining 15 F-16s will be delivered later this year.

Pakistan received block 52 versions of the F-16 aircraft, which includes day-night, all-weather and precision-attack capabilities.

US Air Force Major Todd Robbins said the F-16 would enable the PAF to strike terrorists within their borders while helping them to avoid collateral damage.
