The magazine pointed out that the border conflicts between Sudan and Ethiopia contributed to the former's search for strengthening its military capabilities, especially in the air.
It reported that “the Sudanese Air Force is less capable compared to its Ethiopian counterpart, the most advanced combat aircraft in its inventory are actually a few FTC-2000G combat aircraft purchased from China. The Sudanese Air Force has MiG-29B combat aircraft, but this type of aircraft can only carry R-27R missiles in medium-range interception capability. In contrast, the FTC-2000G is equipped with a radar to control the launch of SD-10A air-to-air missiles beyond the range of sight, a capability not available in the Sudanese MiG-29 fighters.”
The Chinese magazine Myzaker also reported that there is a large demand for the supply of J-10 CE aircraft to Sudan.
Other sources stated that Sudan will become the first country in Africa to acquire the J-10CE.
