Yet pakistan pen 58 percent of the projectThe Saudis won't let it happen. Block 3 with PL15 and SOWs would present a serious danger. The Israelis may not care (F35), but the Arabs will.
IF a deal happens, it will be between China and Iran, and I'm sure the Chinese will restrict Indian access. The Iranians may betray Pak, but won't risk betraying the Chinese.
iran has been involved in anti pakistan activities and is in bed with india so there are cances that iran will give india access to these jets.
my friend , Iranians are emotional people, who thinks highly of their glorious past, For them we are just a small nation with no history. It would be against their national pride to buy anything from Pak.
i think iran will buy tejas from india
Iran might be able to afford Su-57s if they stop paying for BLA terrorists Indian visa and weapons.
Cheap is the worst marketing term you can use.....
Probablyba cheapster walking on a street may fall for that but not a country, if you'll tell a country that this specific thing is cheap, it'll only say no thank you.
New marketing strategy is needed for Block 3 and we may grab some customers.
This jet has potential, it should get orders from 4-5 more places. Sadly we couldn't from Sri Lanka!
they already compleated negociations and all issues related to the export to Azerbaijan have already been resolved. Planes of JF-17 Block II configuration requested by Azerbaijan passed the test.
Azerbaijan-Israel relations are a major concern for JF-17
Martin Baker ejection seats/ ECM/ and some of the electronic gear is western my friendUsing western tech in JF-17 is a bad idea anyway so I don't see the problem here
RD-93 is a modified version of RD-33RD 93*
Some of tech in JF-17 blk-2 is already western like ejection seat/ECM gearsYeah putting western tech on JF-17 is a terrible idea.
JF-17 is almost as capable as early J-10 and up coming block-3 uses lots of tech from J-10C/J-20 with a exception of payload and some avionicsFrankly I am amazed why Pakistan doesn't already have it
It is not about pride, it was evaluated and found to be lacking.Not gonna happen. Neither the arabs or iranians are going to buy jf17, Both are too proudy to buy that jet from Pak.
Given their role in backing Indian terrorism in Pakistan, I dont think Thunders will be exported to them.If only iran was not hostile to Pakistan. This would be an easy task. But iran is somewhat hostile or suspecious country with ties to india.
If india is kicked out of iran by this then i'd say its a good opportunity.
