    JFT III was first confirmed by CAC official in dubai airshow 2011

    [​IMG]

    Now today it is confirmed by PAF official like Pshamim

    So far the existance of JFT Block III is confirmed and induction is supposed to be in 2016

    As the block II is only 6 months far from reality..work on block III is scheduled to start

    What do you people think what goodies apart from engine and avionics the block III will have?

    lets discuss

    Why a separate thread when you can discuss the same thing in the original thread?

    Personally i think

    AESA
    NEw engine with TVC
    5th generation avionics
    redesigned airframe
    e.g Diamond nose
    reduced RCS
    IRST
    PL-21D as Primary BVR or indegenous BVR
    ECM like Spectra


    and many more unknown goodies

    at max we can make it as stealthy as Eurofighter or Rafale at best

    for a complete stealth design like f-22/j-20/Pak-fa we will have to start a new project with stealth design from start

    stealth without internal Bay is useless

    Aren't these features part of Block-II ? May be Engine could be replaced in block-III and every existing feature gets improved but in my opinion everything which we find in block-II would be more or less the same in block-III.

    OR - This diamond shape nose is actually block-III and we are only being "happy fools" considering its block-II.

    the features we used to hear about block II are now shifted to block 3 like AESA,new engine,more hardpoints,diamond shape news,IRST

    the block II upgrade over block 1 are

    New ECM/data link
    IFR
    changes in klj-7 like adding more modes and possible more range too
    and new weapons integration

    apart from this no other upgrade is revealed so far for the JFT block II

    Yes cuz we need to store weapons within the internal bay. Plus we have to increase the size of the aircraft so that we can create such internal weapons bay...The change is size will bring everything new or of different standard than the basic design was.....:smokin:
