    For example western allied countries need NATO compatible equipment. North west Africans need their desired tech which can be linked with their ground radars and data linking. Every country has different alliances and diplomatic relations.

    They are going blk-3 not blk-2, that's why they waited so long for blk-3 @BHarwana

    Because block 2 did not had aesa earlier. Plus block 2 got bvr recently which was also one of their requirements and few more things which Cannot be shared.

    If they are getting jf17 with AESA it mean they are going for Block IIII. Because AESA requires a more powerful thrust-weight ratio engine to compensate for the higher power consumption by the radar.
    The RD-93 or the WS-13 do not offer that.

    The nose would also require a redesign to house the larger ASEA radar which inturn requires larger wings.

    This begs a question... Why would Azerbaijan order a plane that does not exists yet?

    It is most probably Block II with a unique set of avionics.

    I am not spreading anything I said I don't know. The deal is in final stages and they can go for block 2 or 3. Please don't eat my brain. Go to food street and eat a goat brain today.

    Does Iran have a problem with Azerbaijan? they are pretty close to you guys as far as i have read. Why would weapons sold by us to your friendly country bother you?

    European Avionics suppliers were under evaluation.
    Perhaps some customer is asking for NATO standardized jF-17.
