[Global Network Reporter Zhang Feiyang] The Indian Air Force showed the wreckage of an American-made missile, saying it "proves conclusively" that Pakistani warplanes attacked Indian military bases. Pakistan had previously denied sending F-16 fighters to participate in the operation.

"Today Russia" said in a news conference Thursday that an Indian MiG 21 fighter shot down an F-16 fighter of the Pakistan Air Force. Kapoor said the F-16 was one of several aircraft that attacked Indian military bases.

27, India and Pakistan broke out conflict and air war in Kashmir. India claimed to have shot down a Pakistani F-16 fighter plane, but Pakistan denied that the F-16 fighter plane had not participated in the air war.

It was reported that although Pakistan denied using F-16 fighter aircraft in the attack and claimed that no Pakistani aircraft had been hit, the Indian Air Force released a picture of the wreckage of an American-made AIM-120 air-to-air missile (AIM-120 AMRAAM). The Pakistani Air Force ordered 500 AIM-120 air-to-air missiles in 2006 as part of a $650 million F-16 ammunition contract between Pakistan and the United States. The AIM-120 air-to-air missile, manufactured by Raytheon, is a mid-range all-weather guidance missile, which is used by the United States and 33 other countries in the world.
