    Pakistan defers purchase of J-10 planes till their test flights

    ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has deferred the purchase of state of the art fighter J-10 planes from China till test flights.

    Defence sources told Online Monday Pakistan Air Force (PAF) was taking interest in acquisition of state of the art J-10 fighter planes from China. Air Chief Marshall, Rao Qamar Suleman however during his briefing to the members of senate committee on defence told no formal decision had been taken so far to purchase these planes. “We are reviewing the matter. Until these planes are inducted in Chinese air fleet and they meet their targets and objectives during test flights then PAF will decide to purchase them that upto what extent these planes can prove productive for PAF ”, he remarked.

    Sources told PAF was facing lack of funds problem in the wake of tough economic situation. Therefore, PAF was completing its ongoing projects and these would be completed in time. However a clear decision with reference to J-10 planes would be made after their induction in Chinese air fleet and their performance in test flights.

    I have tried to check other sources of the news, but no reliable news, plus there is no news mentioning of the CAS giving a briefing to the committee in recent days by any major newspaper or online news portals.

    My guess, its a fictional story.

    The report says: "We are reviewing the matter. Until these planes are inducted in Chinese air fleet and they meet their targets and objectives during test flights then PAF will decide to purchase them that upto what extent these planes can prove productive for PAF"

    These planes have already been inducted into the PLAAF and the number has already crossed the 200+ figure and more and more regiments are being raised of this plane, and their induction at such a fast pace means they have met rather proved more then expected the parameters set by PLAAF. And we have already flew this aurcraft to test it and we have no problem in test flying this aircraft if we want, just like the JF-17 which was being flown by Pakistani and Chinese test pilots simultaneously during the testing phase.

    This story is hoax, as the writer doesn't knows the ABC of the aircraft and air forces and about this specific aircraft.
