    I wish it would have FLIR like Rafaels and IRST like on UCAVs embed ones.

    Is it just me.. or in this picture.. the DSI intakes don't seem balanced..

    I mean the right one looks higher.. and wider then the one on the left. (Our point of view.. not pilot)

    It was supposed to be the one like on my AVATAR along with Dual seat. Possiblity of WS-13, extensive usage of composites, retractable refueling probe like Grippen, FLIR with WMD-7 pod for IRST.

    This is what WE want JF-17 to be. Not necessarily same as what PAF want it to be, and they are the better judge for sure!

    Some points have been confirmed as far as Blk-II modification goes and i am not of a view that there will further changes in Blk-II other then the ones already been discussed and debated. CFT is not one of them!

    regards!

    If you mean by mouth of any PAC/CAC official, then there were some highlights shown in presentation at Dubai air show 2011 but not much details. However knowledgeable people with some good sources have posted enough information on it you can go through JF-17 information pool for that.

    Please have a go at all the posts by senior members as to why.
    Use the search function as I repeatedly ask to search for terms like the JF-17 information , tactics. strategy before making posts.

    None, the JF-17 has no two seater flying yet, all training is accomplished and is capable of being accomplished for now using the simulator as more current pilots on the JF-17 come with flying experience from F-7's or Mirages.
    Only completely new inductions may need a two-seater which is slated within the next 5 years.
