Pakistan may be in line for an advanced F-16 model. The Block 50/52 would have advanced radar, a full weapons load-out including the Harpoon missile etc. Even if they get the block 50's, individual weapons such as the AIM-9x and Harpoon would require approval.

It is unlikely that this will alter the balance of power with thier rival the IAF, esp if they get a chance to buy the F/A-18 E/F


The heart of the deal will be the new aircraft. At least one option is what Lockheed Martin calls the Advanced Block 50 configuration. This includes the APG-68(V)9 radar with a synthetic aperture mode, as well as a conformal fuel-tank capability. The aircraft will be capable of using an internal ALQ-211 electronic countermeasures jammer and an ECM pod, either the ALQ-131 or -134. Weapons carriage capabilities will include the AIM-120 Amraam and AIM-9 variants, including the AIM-9X.
