    I reckon Tejas is a good deal, you get a fighter aircraft and a truck with it to drive it around.

    Iran and Pakistan recently inked a military cooperation deal.

    I theorized at the time that if China is willing through Pakistan they can transfer ToT while keeping their hands clean from direct military transfer.

    If Pakistan grants Iranian license to produce Jf-17, it will allow Iran to claim it was “indigenous” and slap a different name on it.

    Meanwhile Pakistan gets much needed cash boost as Iran would likely pay significant amount of money to get ToT from China/Pakistan.

    Again we have to see what comes of this. For now we should remain highly skeptical of any arms deals happening even after 2020.

    But what if they order it from China, Saudis won't say anything to them. Plus Saudis have much bigger toys in their fleet, why would JF17 worry them in the first place.

    Important to understand that iran throat is under USA and india...in fact india is largest importer of its oil due to waiver , India can destroy iran now ..so we simply cant trust iran anymore

    China will not sell them to antagonize USA

    Its just business. Saudi Arabia has excellent relations with India. We don't complain.

    When Benazir and her military secretary gave knock down centrifuges to Iran, their blue prints ended up in hands of RAW, CIA, MOSAD within no time.

    I see it differently, Iran has oil, they can stop the oil supply to India if they want because there will always be buyers for Iranian oil. India can't do anything to Iran. And as @Horus said, Saudi and all other GCC countries who we call our brothers have close relations with India but we don't bat an eyelid. Every country looks for its national interest, its time we did too.

    On top of that if Iran does go for it, it will also come with great influence of Pakistan on Iran, secondly Iran has never threatened Pakistan, infact during the Indo Pak war Iran allowed Pakistani jets to land in Iran and gave free fuel and Turkey gave us F-104 starfighters.

    TuAF already Operates hundreds of F-16's , so technically they don't need a Fighter like JF .. but you can always buy other stuff from us :) more Super Mushaks would be good :D

    Turkey

    I can share with every Muslim country but i am sure got the idea.

    Poeple need to wake up and realize there is no brotherly love in international politics, theres only self interest.

    Does these countries handover Pakistani nuclear secrets to america?

    Does these countries support india in UN, when UN was voting to sanction india over killing of kashmiris..

    Pakistan support iran during iran-iraq war and Pakistan was among few countries who support iran militarly and that support really antagonize arab countries. few years after the iran-iraq war, in early 1990s there was voting in UN to punish india for its atrocities against kashmiris. iran instead of coming and supporting resolution it chose to remain absent in voting and india was saved and upon that irony was that their so called supreme leader were asking people to pray for Jihad of kashmiri people to succeed.. same as their supreme leader order to celebrate Pakistan's independence day for a week and very next month they handover chabahar to india..

    Nuclear secrets to America? where did you get that from?

    Check how many muslim countries supported banning India and then come back to me

    Pakistan didn't support Iran in Iran-Iraq war, Pakistan stayed neutral. As for Chabahar, as i said its all self interest, Iran didn't do it because it is Pakistan's enemy. If Pakistan was willing to pay more money then Iran would have given it to Pakistan. Its as simple as that. No country is our brother, we are our own brothers.

    It will be an Iran-China deal. Pakistan can wash its hands off easily by putting the blame on China.

    I see them going for the Su-30SM though.

    You can have discussions behind closed doors, but not the contract signature. That can be done only after Oct 2020.
