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 : https://nationalinterest.org/blog/the-buzz/need-cheap-fighter-aircraft-the-jf-17-might-work-14336 ______________________________________________________________________________ Thanks You For Watching..... -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Site : https://worldofweapon.wordpress.com Facebook : http://www.facebook.com/worldofweapon16 Twitter : https://twitter.com/worldofweapon VK.com : https://vk.com/vk.worldofweapon Myspace : https://myspace.com/worldofweapon #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
