Pakistan’s Air Force on Monday formally inaugurated its newly built main operating base (MOB), in Thatta District in Sindh, northeast of Karachi.
In his inauguration speech on December 25, the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) Chief of Air Staff (CAS) Air Chief Marshal (ACM) Sohail Aman stated that the new base would enable the PAF to support the Pakistan Army “more efficiently”, local media reports
“Indeed, PAF Base Bholari is a project of strategic significance for capacity enhancement of Pakistan Air Force in operational domain both overland as well as at sea. With the establishment of the Base, PAF would be able to support the land operations of Pak Army more efficiently. More so, PAF Base Bholari would also augment and supplement the very important maritime operations carried out by Pak Navy,” Aman was quoted as saying by GEO TV while addressing the inauguration ceremony.
The CAS added that PAF Bholari will also “augment and supplement” the Pakistan Navy’s operations.
The construction of PAF Bholari began in December 2015. At that time, the current CAS of the PAF had implied that PAF Bholari’s focus would be on the “conventional threat” – i.e. the PAF’s traditional focus on India.
