Has Sweden given Pakistan more airborne early warning radar systems?


One of the key aircraft employed by the Pakistan Air Force in the aftermath of India’s air strike at Balakot was the Erieye airborne early warning and control (AEW&C) system, supplied by Sweden’s Saab.

In late March, the Economic Times reported India had lodged a diplomatic protest with Sweden over the Pakistan Air Force “extensively” using the Erieye “in the February 27 aerial battle to direct and control 25 fighter jets towards Indian targets”. On Wednesday, Jane’s Defence Weekly, a reputed defence publication, reported “Saab delivered three sets of radar equipment to Pakistan Air Force Base Nur Khan (Chaklala) on April 9”.

Jane’s Defence Weekly noted “it is possible that the Swedish company delivered three Erieye systems” for installation on Saab 2000 aircraft that had been delivered in 2018. Read More
