China media claims J-10C fighter jets to upgrade Pakistan's defence industry​

The recent surfacing of images of the J-10C fighter jets with the marking of the Pakistan Air Force on social media seems to have verified a widely-circulated hearsay that Pakistan ordered advanced J-10C fighter jets from China, Chinese state media reported.

While there has been no official confirmation about Pakistan's purchase of J-10C jets, Pakistani Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed announced at the end of last year that the Pakistan Air Force would perform a fly-past using 25 J-10C fighter jets to be imported from China during Pakistan's Republic Day parade on March 23, Global Times reported.

Unsurprisingly, much of the attention from the media has focused on how the latest acquisition of the supersonic jets could boost Pakistan's military and national defence.

While it is unknown whether the J-10C deal will involve supply chain transfer or other areas of cooperation, the jets' usage and maintenance will have the potential to accelerate an upgrade Pakistan's defense industry.

China and Pakistan have a long history of cooperation when it comes to joint development and manufacturing of the light fighter project. In fact, the JF-17 Thunder, also known as FC-1 Xiaolong, which was jointly developed by the Pakistan Aeronautical Complex and Chengdu Aircraft Industry Group of China, has already become a good example as to how defense cooperation between the two friendly peoples has enhanced the manufacturing strength in Pakistan, Global Times reported.

After years of research and development partnership with Chinese peers, Pakistan's aviation industry has registered a considerable improvement. Now Pakistan has the capability to independently manufacture the Xiaolong fighter aircraft, which is uncommon among developing countries, the report claimed.

Can somebody please provide a realistic assessment of this jet's abilities.

1) How does it compare to the Rafale (mission set, range, speed, maneuverability, armaments, radar, BVR range, etc.)?

2) What improvements does it bring to the force over the JF17 Block III?

Thanks.

How cn just repainting overhauling can improve Pakistan's aviation industry unless china transfer technology to upgrade and installing Pakistan made subsystems to its J-10C.

On Chinese social media it was said that this purchase will go JF-17 path, it's a ready made, well established mechanism which both countries are very familiar with, it's a quick and efficient way to put the project in smooth operation.

1) Rafale is bigger and better jet. more endurance more capacity
2) it is better and bigger than JF-17 because of its bigger size, bigger engine more payload and more capacity to power all the systems.

I can see China transferring ToT for assembly to Pakistan, but would it transfer the production know-how for the key components like the WS-10 engines that took much hard work, money and time to perfect?

This begs the following questions:
-what was the point of the JF17 if our adversary was already fielding/had placed orders for more advanced jets?
-what's the point of the J10C if the Rafale can outgun it?

Some people say the J-10C is as good as the F-16.
