So, bit of a news.. PAF is now testing rocket boosted REK kits (FT-12), for JF-17 program. That'd push the range of their 500KG munition to 150KM or more.
CM400 going operational. Those notams last month were not for nothing. :)

REK III is the rocket assisted kit, that I had shared PAF has been testing.

Everyone trying to prove that jf17 can do every role is same as the ones using Ms Excel for writing letters.
Hi,

Why are you surprised at that---? That is what modern multirole aircraft do.

The JF17 carries more bombs than the old B57 bomber.

So---it is a bomber aircraft---.

It has the ability to carry smart weapons---so it can launch smartly at the target acquired or a designated target---.

It also has a built in capabiity to launch air to ship missiles against enemy naval ships---so it has a role over the seas---.

It has BVR air to air missile strike capability---so it is an air superiority fighter aircraft---.

There is a supposed version of it coming that would make it an electronic warfare capable aircraft---so now there is another capability that it will have---.

And obviously---it can carry dumb bombs and has a built in canon ---.

So---my question to you is---where lies the problem that you are unable to understand this aircraft's utility---.

See---modern electronics has brought in a miracle---which is when integrated---the aircraft becomes a master of that job---and each and every other job the electronics package is capable of performing---.

Just because it has a smaller size---does not mean that there is something missing---.

It has all the formats of bringing death and destruction without prejudice and with most potent venom---.

Please feel free to ask any other questions.
