On the day the Phalcons were formally commissioned into Indian service, PAF chief Air Chief Marshal Rao Qamar Suleman said it would trigger an arms race (maybe there will come a time when a PAF chief is more than a flunky to the Pak Army-ISI). Well, the first PAF Saab 2000-based Erieye airborne early warning and control aircraft will be delivered to Pakistan by October-November. Are there any credible comparisons out there between the Erieye and the Phalcon?
