A question

Since we have gotten CAMM ER and Aster 30 is on the cards as well (Allegedly) what are the chances that we can get Meteor as well?
What if JF17B are upgraded with Grifo E and meteor while blk 3 gets Pl 15. Is that route worth going?

@Bilal Khan (Quwa) @iLION12345_1 @Akh1112
No, there won't be any Meteor for Jf17. It's primary weapons and sensor suite will remain Chinese.

i don't any see dual rails sir in that pic but standard single rails with 4 BVR sir
Look again and closely. The DERs are very much there. It possibly points to a higher thrust and more efficient engine as one of the reasons given for not using DERs was the increase drag and reduced range.

A couple of questions from the Jef experts here which I'm sure have been discussed before several times but are buried somewhere in 100s of threads.

Can someone please help me catch up with these:

1. Is jf 17 a relaxed static stability design or not? If not then is unstable design a key component of 4th gen fighters? What other 4th gen fighters come with a stable design?

2. Can Jef super cruise? The following link says it can: (some more claim the same too, just mentioning one)

On wikipedia (which is a very unreliable source) it says jef's cruising speed is 1,359 km/h i.e. Mach 1.1? So can it supercruise? If yes then in what configuration?

@Bilal Khan (Quwa) sir can u help?
