    Why you insert objection of KSA.
    Is there any official note so far, or just usual ....?

    At the moment, we produce >50% of a/c.
    Ejection seats are British.
    Engine is made in Russia.
    Displays are made in China.
    Subsystem.. landing gear is made in China.
    What else is foreign made?

    I took KSA name because KSA is our ally and we have look after their interests and IS A should place the order of JF-17 to keep the production line busy and stop Iran from getting it hands on this baby.

    And, from the KSA's perspective, you need to keep the enemy closer....

    The more the stringent the sanctions on Iran gets, the more the Chinese will have the leverage....

    Chinese engine is far cry. Russian one is working above expectations.
    It's thrust has been increased to 12000kg or atleast blk-3 will have this upgraded engine, and RD-93 is a very responsive and stable engine.

    Please give me a break. JF-17 with AESA more capable because it reduces fuel cost for same type of mission. Plus have you seen the versatility of weapons it has. The jet is a multi role it can intercept with bvr and close range and act as a dedicated bomber and target executioner with precision strikes.

    In western arsenal you would have to fly different type of birds for such roles. So jf-17 also reduces training costs.

    Price tag is low because labor is cheap. In Pakistan and China technicians of jets cannot afford Ferrari.

    I don't care, but a i know Iranians are very shrewd negotiates and politicians.
    They would be more interested in technology transfer.
    They basically don't like Pakistan and when they can buy from China, they would never buy from Pakistan.

    Chinese would like to sell them J-10 instead.

    Saudis don't need jF-17. They need a/c with higher loiter time, and which can carry more weapons.
    Most of above they don't have population big enough to produce so many pilots, that they buy cheap a/c in numbers.
    They would keep the number small and buy hightech.

    Buying from China means buying for Pakistan and buying from Pakistan means buying from China we both produce parts of the jets.
