    What you are saying seems to agree with tphuang's post or the interview statement as it says, "DID not have datalink" and not "DO not have datalink"!

    This is the best deign for 2 seat version.

    "Thunder over Dubai"

    The painting depicts a JF-17 Thunder of No. 16 Sqn “Black Panthers”, flying over Dubai’s famous Palm Jumeirah. Thunder made its graceful appearance in Dubai airshow 2011, performing solo aerobatics and static displays with wide range of lethal weaponry.

    BTW according to the latest SIPRI arms transfer database, Russia has directly supplied 50 RD-33/93 engines for the JFT to Pakistan. this qty is other than the 150 engines supplied to China.

    true, 125 SD-10A rounds have been delivered from an order of 200.

    I actually like the fact that Indians are thinking JFT is inferior.
    The more they say this, the more it will become a surprise to them.:woot:

    Stick to JFT and its news.....not much think about Indian's thinking about JFT in PDF.

    Nobody will be airborne from Indian PDF members side against JFT for any conflict. But we do get surprises here.;)
