    1. Pakistan Air force and Navy showing interest and given programme presentation on CH-7 Stealth UAV. Likely 1st overseas customer.

    2. Also another Stealth drone from China and a indigenous Stealth drone being looked at. (will be used SEAD and hit targets in India).

    3. New UUV program started.

    4. Viper IFV going through trials. Will be manufactured in large numbers depending on finances.

    5. China again offered Z-10ME as having adopted all PA upgrades. They have offered at very good package. New trails going to take place shortly.

    6. Nuclear sub project still on. Nuff said. NSFC doing us proud.

    7. MIRV is going from strength to strength.

    8. Should be hearing good news regarding mini subs in the next few years. If everything goes to plan.

    9. MLRS both indigenous and from China being inducted in larger numbers.

    10. Chinese artillery systems coming.

    11. Stealth fighter program starting to take shape, our ally has come through for us. Finances are only hitch.

    12. J-10C in country for exercises is because PAF and China want to convince govt for sale to give interim solution and, backup to the Thunder while 5th Gen is developing.

    Talks of initial purchase of 36 possibly leading to 80 or 90 craft. Again finances a big hindrance.

    More updates to follow. If I can.

    It may interest some to know that the CH-7 shown at the 2018 Zhuhai Airshow was not a mockup or model but an actual engineering prototype, according to an interview with the developers.

    The other stealth drone is likely a derivative of the Sharp Sword follow-on variant, which is rumored to enter production/induction soon. It is from Guizhou & Shenyang, if that is the case. However this is only my speculation.

    ====

    That being said, all of this is contingent upon the fact that these come from credible sources with a time-tested history of leaking authoritative predictions. Now, the ball is in your court. Where are your sources for all of this?

    Pakistan has already bought J-10C they are here to give us the taste of the product.

    Pakistan Navy is assessing multiple UAV and in the end will buy Cloud shadow.

    You have no sense of humor. Obviously not if we had them we would be flying them.

    But Pakistan will have to buy J-10C because we have no other option left now. It is necessary for us.

    USA is not going to sell us anything until we end cpec and declare war on China and that is something we cannot do. Buying anything from Russia is risky because we have trust problems as Russia and Pakistan are just getting acquainted with each other. Twin engine is expensive like hell to operate so what else are the option? J-10C is the only jet that bridges are mid term gap and gives us enough missiles in air to punch a hole in indian defences. Previously mirage was doing the job for us but they need to be retired now it has been too long for those lovely birds defending or skies. Jf-17 is deadly but we need more ammo in air to punch into india and make Delhi cry. We need something to fire those beautiful cruise missiles from air and only J10c can carry so many in air. We need it. We buy it today we buy it tomorrow we buy it after a year but we will buy it. No matter how many 5th gen we make still a load delivery system is needed by Pakistan.

    Are you sure Stealth drone and J-10C are cleared for export by China?

    J-10CE, the export version of J-10C, came out at Zhuhai Airshow-2018.
    CH-7, which will make its maiden flight in one or two years, is for export.
