clearly jf-17 out ranges mirages , at least confirmed in maritime role but spoken to few who said as rd-93 is more fuel efficient out classes fuel guzzler atra 9c by hundred of miles /km

jf and mirage share same capability via range extender kit and raad and h2/h4 ( can also be retired like South African and replaced by better weapons like chines g-6) will be added as well for jf to take over mirage roles and replacement after pg are replaced by first order of block. 3

expect another 100-120 jf to replace 6 mirage sqns, no need to replace 7th mirage sqn in ccs as mirage type will be gone and ccs already has jf

range alos depends upon other characters like overall design, wing area and fuel capacity
rd 33 is ofcourse a turbofan engine and better then turbojet atr but whther jf17 outranges mirages I am not sure..

regardless, jf17 are still going to take on the multirole part and mriages will stay as bombers, where as f7s will be retired

mirages may well stay in till 2030

My point was that if the PAF kept the H2/4 secret for the sake of the SA government to avoid Indian pressure, that is no longer the case today, especially given the fact that the PAF have effectively revealed it publicly now, so don't see the reason for the continued secrecy over the weapon.
@denel
May be because H2/H4 (Raptor 1/2) and (MUPSOW) Raad ALCM were starting point..may be (Raptor III) is the reason for the secrecy.

The weapon is under constant development

I doubt jf17 is going to replace Mirrages. If that was the case than PAF wouldn't be looking for a new fighter jet.
