Per paf last history book which is official history 58% now and after 150 initial order completion pac can take 100% local production provided it’s cost effectiveIs there any plan to move complete manufacturing to PAC ?
It was mentioned previously that manufacturing will go from 58% to 100% in the future.
This patch looks like fan made, jf-17 will replace mirage after all f7 are replaced per official history book paf , Notion it will not is just bs on social media , also confirmed multiple time at pac statements, Kashif tufail articles and interviews etc the only reason a third type was considered was to speed up the process plus get a little longer leg fighter but jf-17 with three tanks get you good enough range plus with revised max takeoff and external load which is kore than now mirages is good enough, with precision weapon you donot need bomb truck anyway
this is photoshopped... +those are live missiles, on a test flight???? one of them is also missing the seeker window...JF-17 Block 3 prototype with PL-10 E WVR AAM
It seems JF17 will host a similar A2A weapon profile as J20.
Pl10 is a pretty decent platform that is
- Highly mobile (with expected pull up to 60 G)
- Large Angle (it host a good 180-degree angle to launch the missile ), Pilot doesn't need to change aircraft direction, it has very high off bore sight
- Anti flare (as Missile is resistant to flare, and concentrate to heat signature of aircraft )
- Anti Jamming capability as well

They both have seeker, you can take a ( zoomed in, if needed be as in my case with equipment available ) picture of the missile in question, enlarge and you will see the glass bubble.
Chinese live AAMs are painted in blue, but as i said the missile on the other side is missing its seeker windoiw. IDK, this all seems weird esp since Denel has said they're intergrating A Darter at the request of a South Asian customerReally? ... and having a real seeker does not mean it has to be a live missile with warhead.
