    JF17 can be a great replacement and addition to their fleet of old A/Cs

    Malaysia su-30MKM and Mig-29 has low operation readiness.. JF-17 shall served them well.

    As far as I know Malaysia loves high-end (expensive) toys, including jet fighters.

    Malaysia currently has shortlisted 4 aircraft: typhoon, rafale, gripen, F/A-18. they do not have a requirement for a fighter of class of JF-17. it would probably do much good for pakistan to offer partnership for production to Malaysia - sort of brings them into Pak/China fold firmly.

    Malaysia now is broke. They are looking for something cheaper while easy to get operational.

    It would be a good replacement for their Bae Hawk 208.

    JF-17 would also look really nice in RMAF camo.

    I think it would be much better to involve them in joint venture for fifth gen Azam project as it will make R and D fund availability for this project more easier jf17 thunder is not strong enough for future air force needs

    That being the major deciding factor, PAC has decided to launch 120 different colour scheme for Thunder on urgent basis to capture the "Fashion Fighter" market.
