It was offered for Jf-17 but we went for Chinese one as we thought it to be better then Grifo-SAnd who is going to use that??
Yes, and the tracking range is 72 kms.92km for 5m2 target?
i already mentioned that "with some modifications"Hi, this radar cannot be used in the F-7PGs as its dish is too large for the F-7PGs nose. Also you are right the the F-7s are using the Grifo-7 and 7PG radars, whereas some Mirage IIIs use the Grifo M (which has look down shoot down capability).
The S-7 radar is not that powerful and was not selected for the JF-17. Selex had also created a more powerful radar called the Grifo-2000, and it would literally plug into existing F-16s without the need for modifications. The PAF was interested, but then sanctions were lifted and the PAF opted for the MLU upgrade (bad idea, but my personal opinion!). Take care.

even Some senior posters are feeling such here is a post from munir (who is a very informed source)As information suggest that China might be working on AESA for thunder that are essential for BLK-II/III development I don't see any need for PAF to move on to a western system if PAF is presented with an AESA radar that perform well with-in the parameter that PAF is looking for. Much has taken place, if J-20 is in making, J-10Bs are on the scene, SD-10B are being workedout with i don't see any reason if behind the scenes an AESA radar is getting ready for next blocks.
I have a feeling that the FC20 is a testbed for JF17 block 2. The technology in JF17 is pretty decent but still far from what we will see in JSF, Rafale or Gripen NG. Block 2 will achieve that with minimum time and costs. I will not be suprised if block 2 is lower RCS (which is pretty low at the moment), big screen cockpit, HMS, IFR (retractable), composites with RAM and angles to minimize RCS, dual all moveable tail, bigger wings, a little longer fuselage, gear retracting into the LERX, and hopefully 2/4 BVR's in the belly.
