A curious story took place in 1974. After buying Lockheed F-104 Starfighter fighters in the USA, the Pakistani Air Force decided to get a modern attack aircraft. The United States at that time offered the Pakistanis the Northrop F-5A Freedom Fighter and the Ling-Temco-Vought A-7 Corsair II. The Pakistanis liked the latter, a visit to the enterprise was organized for them, since it was about the purchase of 110 cars. But in the end, politics intervened. The Carter administration did not want to destroy the balance of power in the region, plus Islamabad began work on the creation of nuclear weapons, as a result, in 1978, Pakistan was offered the F-5E Tiger and/or a new batch of F-104 Starfighter. But Pakistan already wanted to get F-16 fighters, other options did not suit it anymore. The war in Afghanistan made it possible to realize these desires.
