    F 16 & J 20. When J 20 will be inducted successfully in PLAAF then Pakistan will most probably buy them.

    It has two engines, according to many knowledgeable members of this forum Pakistan would not go for a 5th gen aircraft with two engines.

    Not until 2018 , we have had twin engine fighter jets before and i guess we can have again IF our economy can support it.

    Yes and many are old, Now getting MLU, but it will not enhance the life of Airframe. Our f16 will become Mirages from 2020-25.
    You know what happened to F35 when they decided single engine contains max 145KT thrust .
    Maximum speed limited to 1.6 Mach.

    I doubt if the Chinese would be willing to export the J-20.

    Twin-engined jets are cool!

    No Imran Bhai, its what knowledgeable members of this very forum said, i'm only going by their information, which is why i gave reference to them in my post.

    Also, as Aeronaut stated, only if Pakistan's economy can support it.

    I personally would love it if PN goes for J-11B's, but too bad they can't.

    Just as the US refused the F-22 for Japan China won't export for a while, It's the PLAAF that wants 300-400 J-20's. but the J2x and the F-60 for exporting. :coffee:

    Pakistan prefers single engine fighters correct ?

    finances I think

    we already got JF-17 and J-10 going for a third one might not leave much resources to spare.
    and also think what role will it play?

    JF-17 being the backbone replacing mirages , A5s and F7PGs jack of all trade, air strike, CAP etc.
    J-10 together with F-16 .. yet again... Multirole .. intercept, SEAD, escort, CAP and strike roles beyond JF-17s limits.

    that pretty much fills everything/.. what is J-61/ F60 going to be? air superiority? replacement of JF-17 and J-10s?
    first one is just starting induction, second one is still on paper in terms of what PAF wants.

    F-60 or J21 might be something in the far far future. if I am not mistaken JF-17 and J-10s wont mature in our life time.

    do correct me if its absurd what I say

    So the same status as the US-made F-35 eh? I'd say the F-60 looks very good :D

    Mostly for efficiency reasons I believe.

    But I think they'd go for a twin-engined fighter if it offers superior returns relative to a single-engined one. So, I guess it depends what's on the table, and of-course the resources the operator has.

    Correct for now the J-20's are for the PLAAF, but maybe in 20 years for export, thumbs up to SAC.


    Pakistan could gain more experience by China and Saudi Arabia allowing them it train on the J-11, Su-30, F-15.
