A new Tactical Attack Fighter Squadron, with modernised Mirages specialised in night attack role, was added to the Pakistan Air Force today.

''The specialist night strike role of the Squadron directly augments Pakistanís war potential, as night fighting capability becomes an indispensable element in present day air warfare,'' a PAF statement quoted Air Chief Tanvir Mehmud Ahmad as saying.

The Squadron 'Zarrars', is named after Zarrar bin Al Azwar, the favourite lieutenant of renowned Warrior Khalid bin Walid, a companion of the Prophet Muhammad, said a statement released here today.
