I think the man on the right is some kind of Warrant Officer, can someone confirm the exact rank? The insignia is not included in the Air Force insignia on this site.

I found this information on an unofficial Pakistan Aire Force website:

The rank of "Chief Technician" had no equivalent in the Pakistan Army and Navy and was thus, creating some confusion at the Inter-Services level. To resolve this problem, the rank of Assistant Warrant Officer has been recently introduced in the PAF. About 1,000 Chief Technicians have now been converted to AWOs.

So there is now a three tier Warrant Officer cadre:

Assistant Warrant Officer
Warrant Officer
Chief Warrant Officer

An update will be needed on the PAF insignia page.

I believe the Assistant Warrant Officer rank has replaced the Chief Technician rank in the Pakistan Air Force.

Grateful if you could update the PAF insignia.

Shouldn't 'Junior Warrant Officer' be 'Assistant Warrant Officer' and shouldn't the 'Chief Technician' rank be deleted?
