    Sir my point was do Malaysia Requires JF17s in the first place when they can buy top of the line hardware from Russia and USA?They already operate Su30s and F18 Super Hornets. They are not cash strapped at all their Foreign Exchange Reserves stand over 100 Billion Dollars!!!! as we speak and their current account is in surplus for almost 2 decades now.
    I don't believe Malaysia is a market for our thunder. Arab states that have no good relations with Russia should be our primary focus though after Africa

    and deal is pending for 4 years given lack of resources ...they thus floated idea of leasing in which Rafael and f18 walked away, so now its gripen typgoon fight..and lets not forget a change of govt on top of this

    They don't operate super hornet.

    who told you they do..its C/D introduced in 1980s
    Su30 is 20+ years old aircraft and needs upgrades that might be very expensive

    I think that we had already offered JF-17 multiple times but chances were not looking bright, largely because of their perspective of their regional interests and situation. Now with Mahatir back in the driving seat, they are even bleaker.

    IMO I don't see Malaysia purchasing JF-17. I could be wrong, I just don't see it happening. Has China mastered critical subsystems such as AESA radar, EW, turbofan engine tech? Most importantly, can they be used against China in a potential clash over the South China Seas?

    AESA Yes
    RD-93 Malaysia is already using.

    Agreed this is a far fetched possibility.

    potential clash with chuna is what will make Malaysia think of f16/gripen

    But issue is budget restrictions as well..china is country that noone can ignore and Malaysia issues are farless in south china than any other country

    IK has a persuasive power which he might have used to close the deal....

    If Malaysia has some issues with China they better negotiate it out!!! Third party involvement will bring disasters...

    If you have order than we can consider a special design for you but standard Blk-3 will have RD93MK or better.

    I admire the JF-17. But to put it on the same class.....I don't know what to say.

    You don’t think Block III JF-17 will be in the same class as Saab Gripen?

    Malaysia should consider this an opportunity to join the Pak/China alliance and sort out its issues in South China Sea on the table rather than the battlefield.

    Gripen NG is a medium weight fighter with Mach 2.0 top speed and super cruise. Based on current specs, we cannot say the two fall in the same class.
