Misleading title, the aircraft was not “unveiled” by PAC but by CATIC. The aircraft also doesn’t exist currently. It’s just an optional package offered to customers that may want it.

Can someone take the time and write a summary table of K-8P vs this. It feels just nothing more than a slightly improved capability; most of the capability was there long back in K-8s that we examined in Namibia.

Do any training aircraft have combat history? This is basic training aircraft
They do.

The most was by Atlas - MB-326/Impalas. It saw heavy extended operations in Angola at extreme ranges. The biggest advantage these had was using very basic landing strips and faster turn around times. Another advantage is very low altitude flying vs the expensive jets. Logistically you need minimal crew to support. If this can be demonstrated as part of selling capabilities, it will no doubt be good.

One thing i recall we had to mod our impalas was using a ECM/jammer. This would be a must have feature for any forward operating usage.
