Pakistan has earlier organised a major defence exhibition in Baghdad in April 2021 in which JF-17 Thunder thrilled the Iraqi airspace with its extraordinary performance and won the hearts of the government and people of Iraq.

I am not aware of JF-17 participating in defense exhibition in Baghdad in April 2021. Does anyone has a link to news article or youtube video of JF-17 at such a defense exhibition in Baghdad?

Iraqi Air Force has visited PAC over half a dozen times over recent years

they have been impressed and interested

but I am not sure why a deal is never signed

maybe Pakistan isn't good at marketing?

does PAC have a specialised marking team which can show for example different configurations of the JF17 for custom design for each Air Force

we need to start tailoring these visits to the specific airforces and not just generic show around

Chinese can sell to anyone but Pakistan is finding it hard to sell to its own Muslims brother nations, why? we dont know how to sell?

According to the sources, the defense agreement has been approved by the Iraqi and Pakistani governments and a formal agreement is expected to be signed in Islamabad next month. The Iraqi government has approved $664 million for the purchase of 12 combat aircraft from Pakistan.

The Iraqi Minister of Defense, Lieutenant-General Juma Inad Saadoun, visited Pakistan earlier in May, during which he held meetings with Pakistani leaders and officials and discussed Iraq's interest in purchasing JF-17 Thunder fighters from Pakistan.

That is big news if true.

Becos Chinese dealing are very flexible. We accept Barter trade while most other countries especially third world countries prefer USD cash than goods accepted.

China need plenty of raw material, therefore accept raw material as payment appeal to China more than other countries.

Why are Iranians so upset? why cant Iran ever be happy for any muslim nation when they accomplish something?

First panjshir Pakistan drones taking out ethnofacist persian terrorist now Iraq purchasing the latest PAKISTANI fighter jets :D

Remember BHARAT-IRAN tried to corner Pakistan on both sides via Chahbar and their strategic agreement? Now look how things turned.

WE PAKISTANIS SHOULD NEVER FORGET HOW IRAN BACKSTABBED US BY SIDING WITH HINDUSTAN AND AGREEING TO HOUSE INDIAN PORTS AND EVEN INDIAN FIGHTER JETS .

Looks like the PAF will have a solid squadron to the west of Iran :D thus cornering these ethno facist cultist on 4 sides... Turkey/Azerbaijan- Iraq- Afghanistan- Pakistan. :pakistan: :pakistan: :pakistan:

Soon inshallah we will make alliance with Israel and KSA against ethnofacist terrorist and send them to hell. That is what they deserve for siding with terrorist against Pakistan.

Soon even SOMALIA will have troops occupying TEHRAN :D unless these cultist renounce their ways and come to ISLAM if not then IRAN SHALL BE PUNISHED FOR ITS WICKED WAYS.
True,
historically Persians were mocked by invaders for their lack of zeal for fighting.
what they lack in muscles, they more than makeup with clever mischief.

this is international defence forum and we represent Pakistan give due consideration that despite opposition the criticism doesnt become hateful with religious rants.
