Need a Cheap Fighter Aircraft? The JF-17 Might Work

Need a Cheap Fighter Aircraft? The JF-17 Might Work “After several years’ co-development and marketing, China and Pakistan have signed a contract with third party customer for the purchase of JF-17 Thunder,” reads a statement released by AVIC . “As China and Pakistan improve their ability and skills in co-developing JF-17 Thunder, the aircraft is becoming a ‘Blue Ocean product’ with much market potentials as an ideal replacement for second-generation fighters in many countries’ air force.” Though billed as a development partner, Pakistan—which co-produces part of the aircraft—was essentially the first and only customer for the Chinese jet—which is not operated by the People’s Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF). The JF-17 is replacing a host of aging warplanes in Islamabad’s arsenal including the Chengdu F-7, Mirage III, Mirage V and the A-5 Fatan strike aircraft while complementing the Lockheed Martin F-16 Fighting Falcon. written by Dave Majumdar Source : ______________________________________________________________________________ Thanks You For Watching..... -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Site : Facebook : Twitter : : Myspace : #jf17 #PakistanAirForce #FighterJets #Aircraft Tags:- defence news,news,world news,weapon,asia news,military news,military,event,military event,defense news,,defence update, defense update,military update
