Before 1990s, our air force equipment is not as gorgeous as it is now. Apart from a small number of second-generation high-altitude and high-speed fighters such as J-7 and J-8, it is the well-known fighter-6 that really shoulders the heavy responsibility of airspace defense. As early as the 1950s, China introduced a small number of Soviet-made MiG-19 fighters, and on this basis developed the first generation of domestic supersonic fighter type 59 (that is, the later J-6). Subsequently, the J-6 aircraft was equipped in batches with the first-line air force. After the sixties, under the blockade of the United States and the Soviet Union, the development of our aviation technology was difficult, and the development of new fighter aircraft encountered bottlenecks. The mass-produced J-6 became the absolute main force of air force and won many battles with the Kuomintang and American fighters. Especially in the airspace near Wenchang County, Hainan Province, in 1967, it shot down the F-4C "ghost" fighter aircraft invading the airspace, showing excellent air combat capability.

In that passionate years, Fighter-6A fighters were not only deeply trusted by the first-line aviation soldiers, but also went abroad in large numbers, making many achievements in overseas battlefields and achieving a foreign legend. The second Indo-Pakistani war broke out in 1965 shortly after the J-6 was put into operation. Two old enemies, India and Pakistan, came and went to Kashmir for five months. In the end, neither side gained obvious advantage, but during the war, the United States declared neutrality and imposed an arms embargo on both countries. This made Pakistan, which had long relied on American military equipment, complain, especially the Pakistani Air Force, which at that time had almost one-water American equipment, from first-line fighter planes to helicopters. The U.S. embargo has cut off the air force's artillery and ammunition supply, not to mention the supply of the most important aircraft parts. Throughout the war, although the Pakistani Air Force performed well, it also lost more than 20 aircraft. At that time, Pakistan's domestic industry was so weak that it could not produce its own aircraft to supplement it. By contrast, his opponent, India, is much more affluent. Originally, the Indian Air Force aircraft is a mixture of British, Soviet, French and other universal brand equipment. The U.S. arms embargo has little impact on it. Pakistan, which has already run out of food, has to find another way. During the Second Indian-Pakistani War, US-made F-86 and F-104 fighter planes were the main equipment of the Pakistani Air Force

< img src="/1ydzximg/0LDW0ZDVkB"/> < p> Just at this time, because of the border problems with India, China, which had no contact with India, inadvertently stepped into the same battle line with Pakistan. Especially in the Sino-Indian border conflict in 1962, China beat India to pieces, which gave Pakistan a desire to be close to China. During the second Indian-Pakistani war, Pakistan turned to China for help, hoping to purchase a batch of China's latest J-6 fighter planes and provide personnel training, which was subsequently approved by China. Since October 1965, Pakistan has secretly selected elite pilots to participate in training in China. At the same time, China has also added production lines to produce new fighter planes according to the needs of Pakistan. After two months of intense learning, these elites of the Pakistani Army quickly mastered the operation skills of the J-6 aircraft. The excellent low-altitude maneuverability of the J-6 book also impressed the pilots flying over US-made fighter planes, which was just in line with the needs of Pakistan at that time. The F-86 subsonic fighter plane of the Pakistani Air Force was repeatedly suppressed by Indian "Hunter" fighters in close combat. The arrival of the J-6 just made up for the shortcomings of the Pakistani side. <

Faced with huge air defense pressure, the 23rd brigade (No. 23 Sqn, nicknamed "Hawk Claw"), equipped with 12 J-6 fighters in the first batch, immediately entered the combat readiness duty. Subsequently, more J-6 fighters came to Pakistan to join the Pakistani Air Force sequence. Until the third Indian-Pakistani war in 1971, the Pakistani Air Force had equipped four squadrons with 48 fighter-6 aircraft. In addition to the 23rd squadron mentioned above, there were also 11th squadron (No. 11 Sqn, nicknamed "Shenjian"), 25th squadron (No. 25 Sqn, nicknamed "Night Hawk") and 15th squadron (No. 15 Sqn, nicknamed "Cobra"), which constituted the main core of the Pakistani Air Force. After the U.S. arms embargo was lifted in 1965, Pakistan installed the AIM-9 rattlesnake missile from the U.S. under the wing of the J-6, an air-to-air missile that once terrified Chinese pilots flying the J-6, but now it has become a close-fitting sword of the J-6, which makes people sigh and dazzle.

met again in 1971 between India and Pakistan, and the Battlefield Fighter-6 gained valuable operational opportunities. At first, however, the Pakistani Air Force gave the J-6 the mission of supporting each other in order to relieve the pressure of the Indian army's mad attack in the early days of the war. On December 3, 1971, in the Shakargarh area of Punjab, Pakistan, the Indian army assembled two infantry divisions and two armored brigades and attacked the Pakistani army under the cover of Su-7 fighter bombers. Pakistani Air Force 15th Squadron launched into the air. Its fighter-6 aircraft used three 30mm guns and 8 *57mm rockets to fire madly at Indian tanks, smashing multiple Indian attacks, destroying Indian artillery positions and ammunition depots, and Air Force Lieutenant Javed Latif also shot down and wounded one Su-7. In the scuffle, NAYYAR Iqbal, a lieutenant of the < strong > Air Force, drove his plane into a Hunter fighter and died with it.

On December 7, Su-7 and Hunter of the Indian Air Force attacked again, and the 25th Squadron of the Pakistani Air Force was ordered to take off to meet the enemy. Encountered over the Soan Valley in Punjab. Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Saad Hatmi made full use of the superior mid-low altitude combat performance of J-6, quickly occupied the advantageous position with a large slope, and fired a rattlesnake missile at a Su-7 fighter plane. The Su-7 dodged and exploded in the air. Meanwhile, Air Force Lieutenant Shahid Raza, a wingman, killed another Su-7 trying to escape by climbing very fast. Lieutenant Lazar later recalled the scene:

My middle machine gun had run out of ammunition and could only rely on the machine guns at the roots of both flanks. After the triumph, Lieutenant Lazar learned that the Su-7 he shot down was Lieutenant Jiwa Singh, commander of the 27th Indian Air Force.

On December 14, in the Shakagah area, three fighter-6 of the 11th PAF Squadron and four MiG-21 of the Indian Air Force met, and the PAF pilots once again demonstrated their skilled combat skills. Air Force Lieutenant Aamer Ali Sharieff used rattlesnake missiles to shoot down one MiG-21 aircraft and three others fled. The Pakistani Air Force won the "MiG Duel" by means of the J-6.

in two textbook-style air confrontations, which made the Pakistani Air Force more famous and become the research and study object of the air forces of all countries. And the J-6 fighter planes, which won the two victories, began to be favored by the third world countries. Even Americans, after seeing the outstanding achievements of the F-6, asked Pakistan for the J-6 research. In the subsequent battles, J-6 and F-104 became the mainstay of the Pakistani Air Force. In the third Indian-Pakistani war, the J-6 fighter planes dispatched 823 sorties, accounting for 28% of the total air force sorties (2919), and shot down 7 enemy planes at a small cost of losing 4. Although Pakistan eventually lost the war, the J-6 gained a firm foothold in the PAF, and Pakistan subsequently purchased more J-6 aircraft from China. The PAF fleet equipped with the J-6 expanded to nine squadrons. With the assistance of China, several J-6 maintenance plants have been built, which laid the foundation for the development of Pakistan's aviation industry. J-6 trained a whole generation of aviation and flight personnel for Pakistan, and served until the beginning of the 21st century, until J-7PG and FC-1 joined the sequence. In 2002, the last batch of J-6 in Pakistan withdrew from active service, and the last J-6 that withdrew belonged to the 23rd brigade, which was the first Pakistani army to assemble J-6.

When it retired in 2002, the PAF prepared a grand retirement ceremony for it, and replaced one of them with a painting with the flags of China and Pakistan, and kept it as a monument for ever.
