Welcome aboard brother. Please accept our most cordial eid greetings and gratitude for your support for Pakistan. On this forum, you will find everything you are looking for. If RMAF decides to cooperate with Pakistan/China for JF-17 program, we would hold nothing back from Moroccan brothers.Hi everyone,
I joined this Pakistani Forum just to answer this thread, I was searching on Google for differences between the Moroccan F-5 Tiger and the Chinese/Pakistani JF-17, and I found the thread, so I was having fun going through the subject and the whole conversations.. First of all, I would love to notice, that as a Moroccan and Muslim, I'm so proud of the Pakistani Army, who truly works hard in order to have a word in the world community, which I wish nothing but the best for you..
Returning to the subject, the RMAF got the offer from the Chinese Chendgu and also proposed an industrial cooperation to the RMAF, which is a great offer. As you all know, the RMAF has 24 F-16 Block 50/52++, Alpha Jets for training, and Mirage F1 and F-5 Tiger. The French Mirage F1 were upgraded to MF2000 lately, which mean, there's no need to replace them for the moment, so what the RMAF is focusing on, is what would replace the F-5 Tiger, and there's too many options as you know.
Believe it or not, me, as the most of the Moroccans who're interested in the RMAF news, we're too open for the Chinese offer, because that would give us a push, to have more industrial cooperation in the future, making our own fight jets, but the RMAF chiefs, as I guess, are more interested in an aircraft with two engines, because Algeria has the Su-35 and Spain has the F-18 and Eurofighter Typhoon as well, so we need something that would face these at once..
So from my point of view, I think that the JF-17 offer comes in the 2nd place, and nobody knows what the RMAF is aiming on, as the 1st place.I Thank you all, one by one, for being interested in the thread, and I will try to continue the conversation with you..
Greetings from Morocco
Since you mentioned the replacement of the F-5 Tigers, i'd like to post a chart explaining the differences between the JF-17 Thunder Block 1 and the F-20 Tigershark, which was the best F-5 development package ever built but didn't see production. I hope this would put things into perspective. Shukran. Fi Aman Allah
