On a lighter note, @PAR 5 will say no because he is too negative most of the times and will cite 'no money' claim like he always does :p again just saying on a lighter noteI'd trust @Ark_Angel, @kursed and @PAR 5. If 2 out of 3 of them say 'yes' to something, it's probably true. If all 3 do it, then it's certainly true. I'm leaning on 'probably' in that it's true, but not a certainty until they land in Pakistan (as the PAF had nixed such deals in the past).
*Let the officials confirm.
For me its more of local production of all types of weapon systems.As for the J-10, as I keep saying, what's the point of having Chota Bhai, Bara Bhai (little brother, older brother aka JF-17 & J-10C) configuration?
The Turks are doing good by trumpeting joint-venture and co-production ideas, which probably does annoy those who are comfortable with buying off-the-shelf.For me its more of local production of all types of weapon systems.
Although next to impossible, I hope China and Turkey decline selling weapons to Pakistan so buying jets, tanks, gunships, ships, subs etc from other countries gets stopped completely. Pakistan has to start making its own then. Its been 73-74 years already.
Don’t know if the news is legit, but the paint job is the prettiest I’ve seen on a J-10.So I can't wait for it ... and as always; I'm more than happy to be proven wrong.
By the way:
