may be but PAF describe JF-17B as fighter jet not as LIFT .... though It can be employed as LIFT as wellWe do have JF-17B which fits in that role.
might be because they are seeking limited fighting capability, KAI (FA-50), TAI (Hürjet note: Hürjet is still under development), CATIC (L-15), Leonardo (M-346) have limited weapon carrying capability.Then why is it LCA tender and not a LIFT tender
How can you be so sure?
No doubt JF-17 is a very successful fighter. Hope Tejas can catch up to JF-17 one day.How can you be so sure?
JF-17 does have buyers unlike Tejas.
Nigeria is satisfied customer:
Nigerian military and political leadership unanimously conveyed complete satisfaction on the performance of newly inducted JF-17 fighter aircraft from Pakistantribune.com.pk
all of the Malaysian Brothers have their heads on right, yes JF17 is an ready win given that it's a very capable and s true multi role fighter with no political strings attached which fa50 comes with an amreekan engine (I think) and other european avionics that'll come with a some lotta political, financial & social strings attached almost right after delivery.Jf17 easy win. There’s no comparison
This latest incident might cause issues for a JF17 bid
