how is that? please explain whyif there are no extra hardpoints I think jf17 with AESA will be handicapped.
So B model lost about 200 lbs due to dual seat not bad , single seater total internal capacity block 1 and 2 was 5130 lbs or 2330 kg not sure about block 3Internal fuel carrying capacity is 4,910lb or equivalent to 2,227.14 litters of fuel.
Total fuel carrying capacity is 1o,ooolb or equivalent to 4,535.92 litters of fuel with all 3 external fuel tanks
There should be dedicated hp for pods periodhow is that? please explain why
it has 7 hard points yes? which gives a big mix of weapons, fuel and avionics pods for A2A ad A2G roles BVR and short range missiles, guided bombs etc.
why you want the plane to carry extra weight when it might not get the chance to use any or all of its ordinance?
I would rather want its current weight the same with same external weight but more powerful engine to give it more thrust to weight , more agility and movement.
Iraq seems the most likely buyer in the near future because Iraq bought Chinese drones and they had stellar performance.
