    Do care to go through JFT Information pool (A thread opened for very purpose). Instead of commenting for the sake of commenting, its better to try and searching something rather than usual blah blah blah....

    Every country has its own requirement.
    China is already busy in multiple projects like j10s, J11, , J20s.
    Why you preferred Rafale instead of Eurofighter, Because you already have air superiority Su30Mki.

    1- "Some" saying 5 countries and 7 countries are various sources (Electronic sources i.e. AFM,JDW etc)
    2- I would like to know that "some" who said the export order has already been signed
    3- Baseline news dont change. No body had said that exports will come tomorrow, if somebody said so, people here are sane enough to question the claim. Its not like Barkshit forum where even oldies contribute merely bullshit to threads.

    Dont ask such questions....they always believe that whatever they feel is a fact, much of their thought process initiates from backside.......

    Wow!!cool point....but there is currently a nation having a defense project which its own AF accepted to save the face of some "indigenous development"...although having assistance from 4 aviation giants (for some avionics,engine,weapons etc)
    But lets not go there...
    although we just did..LOL!

    As far as why China doesn't use the JFT
    well that alone can bring out a whole debate like if they didn't want to use it themselves than why did they:-
    -Create their own pt-06 version
    -use WS-13
    -Integrated (and still integrating) the best weapons they have
    -Went through the trouble of designing and financing a whole project which had 3 different phases (Sabre 2,super 7 and then the FC-1/JFT) and was at one time termed "the paper project"....


    However getting back on topic
    Simple reasons...
    -Not every nation can afford F-16C,Mig-29 SMT,Mirage 2000-5 league jets ... but all the countries need some sort of self defense...

    -Simply put the main capabilities like BVR,EW etc are provided in the same league but with less price...

    Simple rule which we management science nerds call the demand rule which basically states:-

    "Less price, more the demand of a given good"

    than there is the

    necessity vs Luxuries...

    Necessity being some credible air defense
    Luxury being having higher end 4/4.5 gens at their given price which many countries cant afford.

    As for the time frame its simple infact it actually hints that by 2017-2018 time frame we would be having (or atleast aiming of having) a JF-17 fleet strength of 150+...

    Regards...

    well i am for it its impossible for us to sell to others when our own needs are not fulfilled i say remake the entire paf with jf17 and when this is done then tell the other countries to give an order and then even those countries will feel their orders will be prioritized

    The recent rumor was that the leaked pictures of FC-1 with YJ-83 were being integrated for PLANAF which has expressed her interest in J-10 and FC-1 as well.
