UK may object this deal

however French are really annoyed right now over AUKUS

and they may offer generous terms to the Argentineans for a new Mirage 2000 or even worse something like upgraded Mirage 2000-5 or -9

remember the French sold air-launched Exocets to the Argentinians and they caused havoc to the Royal Navy

if UK blocks this sale French will step in

so UK will have no issues with ejection seat or JF17

Pakistan should push this deal before foreign policy change again
The ejection seats from the Mirage are from Martin Baker.

Who cares what the UK thinks... they harbor terrorist and cronnys as the likes of Altaf Hussain and Nawaz Shariff. As well as countless baloch/pashtun terrorist.

Pakistan should throw in some freebies for Argentina. Maybe Harba Anti Ship Cruise Missiles? :D

Hi,

Illiterate kids arguing about MB seats.

Pakistani pilots don't like to eject---. Why do we need MB seat to eject when these pilots don't eject in a timely manner---.

A couple of points. Mirage 2000 production is done now. Even India is buying old airframes for parts now.
The French like money the Argentinians don't have enough.
The UK is not as worried as a lot of people here like to think.
I still think they will go for F16's if this doesn't go through (They have had them offered before)

Pakistan seeks buyers for JF-17 Thunder jets
By Iftikhar A. Khan
Sunday, 18 Jul, 2010




ISLAMABAD: Pakistan is looking for buyers for the JF-17 Thunder multi-role fighter jets it has co-produced with China.

An official told Dawn on Saturday that funds generated through the sale of the combat aircraft would be used in efforts to modernise Pakistan Air Force which was already emerging as a potent outfit with the recent induction of force multipliers.

He said that besides Turkey, some countries of the Middle East and Africa were taking keen interest in acquisition of the aircraft.

He said that two JF-17 Thunder aircraft of the PAF, manufactured at the Pakistan Aeronautical Complex, Kamra, had flown to the United Kingdom to participate in the forthcoming Farnborough Air Show 2010, scheduled to be held between July 19 and 25.

The JF-17 Thunder is an all-weather and multi-role combat aircraft that has potential to be the mainstay of any modern air force.

The sources said the serial production of JF-17 Thunder had already started and ultimately some 250 aircraft would be inducted in the fighter fleet of the PAF.

The first squadron of JF-17 has already joined the fighter fleet and the second squadron will be inducted by the end of the year.

They said the PAF had invested in the force multipliers like air-to-air refuellers, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and airborne early warning and control (AEW&C) aircraft to enhance its capacity and capability to undertake complex operations.

He said that efforts to enhance capacity of the PAF would continue in the wake of growing importance of air power which played a vital and decisive role in war situations.

The source observed that participants of the Farnborough Air Show would prove to be a good forum for interacting with people interested in JF-17 Thunder and booking orders for supply of the potent combat aircraft.

The Farnborough International Airshow (FIA) is one of the world’s most iconic global aviation events.

FIA holds a prominent position in the aerospace calendar taking place on a biennial basis (once every two years) over one week in July.

The first five days of the show are traditionally trade days only, followed by a weekend where the exhibition is opened up to the public.

The most recent airshow, FIA 2008, was a record-breaking year for business with $88.7 billion worth of orders announced during the show.

The 2008’s event featured 165 aircraft in static displays and spectacular flying displays and the public weekend attracted a staggering 153,000 visitors. The upcoming Farnborough International Airshow is certain to be the most exciting to date.

With its existing exhibition halls, flying displays and UAV pavilion, FIA 2010 will evolve its business theme to include a number of new networking initiatives such as a themed conference and seminar programme, a ‘meet your buyer’ event and a day dedicated to the International Futures for Youth.

Additionally, FIA 2010 will feature a dedicated ‘Space Zone’ and enhanced UAV presence.

Heads would turn when Blk III is unleashed in these airshows. That is where the potential lies. In fact, PAF and Chengdu corporation should be thinking about a Blk IV already.
