The dual rack will make a huge difference. 6 missiles a gun drop tanks(wish they were conformal) and ASEA radar.... that's a beast

Pakistan–Serbia relations

Knew this was coming months ago, JF would be a really good option for Serbia given their current aircraft and budget.

Malaysia, Argentina, Serbia, Qatar, Senegal, Azerbaijan, more orders from Nigeria…just the amount of interest the fighter is getting says a lot.
My hypothesis is that most countries have hit the sweet spot where their older generation fighters have exceeded airframe lifespan.

I hear that the JF-17 Block 3 is just 30 million US dollars per plane?

If this is correct then it offers the best bang for the buck out of any light fighter out there.

Former Soviet allies, non-aligned nations, and those generally outside the western fold are the best markets to present the JF-17.

Especially considering many nations have smaller and smaller fleets, if one nation equips its Air Force with a few squadrons of the JF-17 it can easily become competitive in its region. Argentina and Venezuela come to mind when comparing them to Brazilian Gripens. Nigeria will be on par with South Africa, which may be struggling to fund the upkeep of its fleet of Gripens. Myanmar could hold back the Thai Air Force Gripen with its JF-17s. The JF-17 has become a real equalizer for nations outside of conflict with the major powers. Even that is a possibility between the Argentinan JF-17s and the RAF eurofighters in the Falklands.

Imagining this beast with a WS-19 engine at 11300 kg/25000 lb Max thrust; the same TWR ratio as the most maneuverable F-16s, and advancements to keep its RCS, IR and Electronic signature low along with a modern AESA radar, possibly IRST, and PL-15 and PL-10 Missiles (PL-21 probably in the pipeline), all for $30 million .... and its will stay relevant for decades to come around the world (considering 4 th Gen fighters like the F-16 and Gripen look like they are expect to serve another 40-50 years). Wouldn’t be surprised if it becomes the next “Bad Guy Plane” in a third Top Gun movie; a modern “Mig-28”.

New Nickname for the JF-17 should be “The Great Equalizer”.

After seeing JF-17 kick some Indian rear many air forces around the world have taken notice. Remember that Indian air force fielded Israeli upgraded MiG flying coffins among many others. All were deterred and the flying coffin got taken down. IAF boasts to be one of the best and got humiliated. Both tactically and otherwise.
