Islamabad’s otherwise dull and tranquil nights are now a days abuzz with a certain discomforting and disquieting vibe and many of the inhabitants of this beautiful capital are feeling the heat of it. If one looks up towards the city’s hills-clad horizon, he would find visible signs of wide spread mistrust that exists between and in-between the country’s premium institution.

It seems as if through the swipe of a mystical wand someone or somebody has managed to vanish every single shred of mutual good-will that ever existed in the corridors of power-politics and momentarily everyone who walks through these ghostly cloisters is wary of his own shadow. This situation which speaks volumes about the state of affairs prevalent in the heart of the Islamic world’s sole “Nuclear Power”, is however well concealed beneath a dark veil of secrecy and from the outside it seems all is healthy hearty in this lush-green valley.

There’s a well-developed discussion going on about the definition of 5th generation fighters – or even if the term itself is at all valid. Sensor fusion, thrust vectoring, supercruise capability, AESA radars and similar terms are being thrown around quite liberally, but the biggest sticking issue is stealth. Low observability is what makes the category exclusive to clean sheet designs, as there’s a limit to how much stealth can be baked into an existing design. Just like F-35 and F-22, a truly low-observable plane has to be designed, from ground up, for stealth. This influences both shape and material composition of the hull, down to specialized coatings.

National projects: in it for the long run
