AH-1F Cobra : 20 with 20 more acquired recently.
Mi-8/17 'Hip' : 27 with an unknown number of Mi-17s acquired very recently.
Bell-47G : 12 Light utility and rescue helicopter.
SA-315B Lama : 15 similar role as Bell-47G, also takes part in Siachin operations.
Hughes 300C : 10 Light Helicopter.
UH-1H Iroquois : 10+10 Multirole troop transport helicopter.
SA-330J Puma : 25 Medium sized utility helicopter.
Bell 206B Jet Ranger : 28 light transport.
SA-316B Alouette III : 24 utility helicopter, mainly used in Siachin.
Bell 407 : 40 Recently acquired.
Schweizer 300 : 10 with an additional 10 Schweizer 333 being acquired.
The new batch of Mi-17s is probably intended to replace the aging Mi-8s, while the new Bell 407s might replace some Alouette IIIs. The number of Cobras has been boosted to 40 with the old fleet being brought to the same state of technology as the newly acquired examples, fresh spares are also being acquired.
This brings the total number of light, medium and attack helicopters in the Pakistan Army's service to 251+ (there are atleast another 50 helicopters that are unaccounted for over here as they were recieved after 9/11 and the numbers were not revealed. Not a bad number.
