    I see, that's a typical response from losers so nothing new for me. Mate, lies won't go without being countered.

    Talks mean nothing, until a MoU or contract is signed. Pakistan is talking with a number of countries, including Azerbaijan and a number of African countries like Sudan.

    Right now, the only two confirmed customers are Nigeria and Burma.

    Hi,

    Grippen is very expensive in maintenance---plus the swedes can put restrictions anytime they want on the instructions of the US/UK---or themselves if they feel fit---.

    Grippen has US components mainly the engine and many other subsystems perhaps are from other EU countries which makes it prone to politically motivated sanctions in case if customer's relations worsen with any of these countries while PAF has total ownership of JF17 to sell and export to any country it wants.

    For this order, IK won't need to visit Malaysia again ... PAF can take over from here :)

    Block-III will offer a highly potent platform at mouth watering price so a lot more orders will come.

    As mentioned, this was discussed months ago at Farnborough.. the current government has NOTHING to do with it.

    Current RD-93 engine is not as good as RD-33MK which is smokeless and falls far short of Su-30MKM's AL-31FP engine. However, if JF-17 Block 3 can come up with a superior WS-13 engine then the prospect is good.

    they Do want Pakistan to train their forces dont they??

    the guarantees would come from Pakistan for the fighter and its long term support, if we r offering not China....lets not forget Pakistan owns 58% of JF17 project.

    Why not? This is happening because of this attempt. Aircraft take a little longer than other equipment to purchase; Azerbaijan now has their pilots on exchange checking out the JF17.. Nigeria has done their initial IPs..

    See how long the Indian MMRCA took... and went nowhere.

    If we manage to come up with BLOCK III fast it could be our F-16 when it comes to sales to other markets

    The correct phrase is to "beat around the bush" meaning not coming to the topic while wasting time talking about irrelevant matters, like colour schemes.

    Not that anyone minds a bush after a beating.
