    PAF will enter the Fifth Generation Fighter Profile some where around 2018. Even though JF-17 Thunder future Blocks may still form the backbone of PAF, the fifth Generation fighters will give PAF the Air Superiority it will need to counter the Enemy Air Force.

    A Number of Viable Options exist with the Export versions of Chinese 5th Generation aircrafts under development.

    Can hardly wait....

    it's speed,avionics,guns(1),hardpoints and service ceiling are its weakpoint along with its radar(comparing cost with capabilities and comparing upgraded version of KLG-7 which is expected on block 2) range and chineese avionica and RCS……
    another drawback PAF don't have its source code and interigation of westren missiles on this platform is gardly possible along with it hasnot air refulling capability……
    I am also not trolling
    so JFT still better option…

    its thrust after burn,dry thrust and takeoff load and no of hardpoints are also not effective comparing it with JFT and don't know about its BVR capability……

    no hope of even placing orders of 5th gen(China) before 2022……
    yeah if economy stablize and US agrees then we can hope US 5th gen equip2018(hardly) but chineese jets would take time to satisfy PAF requirements so peace till 2028……:sleep::azn:
