    Comparison of JF17 and F35 is illogical. If EAF wants a counter to F35 they should look for Su57 or FC31.

    Meanwhile i have a few questions that might help some people understand.

    How many F35s will be enough to take out entire F16A, C and Ds fleet of EAF? just wondering...

    With reliable data, will JF17 block 3s be better than the best F16s EAF has?

    Do Egypt has AWACS? Can they be data-linked to thunders?

    Tbh Egypt should phase out very light aicraft like JF-17 or go for Gripen NG which outclasses even the JF-17 Block 3.

    Not only Su-57 in the pipe line , Rafale is good enough for now.

    Yes Egypt has link 16 too..

    Gripen could replace F-7 and other lighter aircraft while still be capable.

    Gripen has too many Western components , we prefer Eastern components..

    Great news. Hope it happens. JF-17 meets the tactical needs of many Arab nations pretty well in my opinion. TOT and local production is not an issue. Arab nations should focus on developing regional defense industries as well as connections to Chinese defense companies. It always good to have options.

    but apparently all the members belonging to Egypt don't seem so interested.
    We're the ones who are claiming its a good deal for them but they don't seem so enthusiastic about it.

    The 3 planes they ordered were for testing their real order was of multiple squadrons

    Good, but just a few squadrons are not enough to get TOT..Production under licence is like sales too..So if Egypt intends to make 150 JF-17 it is also going to buy some components from China..Hence TOT will be provided..

    Egypt as per experts are going in wrong direction buying different jets like MIG 35, rafale and if jf17 is going to be maintenance nightmare. They in the start should have gone for only one platform giving them jf17 in my opinion stupid since they will waste them like in 67 and Israels will get their hands on it.
