    Kamra-based Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC) is staying tight-lipped on the identity of the first international customer for its JF-17 Thunder fighter, but says marketing efforts for the single-engined type are going well.
    “The contract is already signed, but we will leave it to the customer to announce it first,” says Air Marshal Javaid Ahmed. “There is a lot of interest in developing countries. I think almost all developing countries are keen to have a look at the JF-17.”
    He says potential clients fall into three classes: ones with which there have been negotiations, a group evaluating data, and a group who have shown some interest in the Thunder.
    Increased international engagement about the JF-17 has seen promotional efforts transfer from the country’s air force to PAC, where it is overseen by the organisation’s deputy director.
    The JF-17 is a joint development between PAC and Chinese airframer Avic and is powered by a single Russian-made Klimov RD-93 engine.
    One strength of the programme, adds Ahmed, is that Pakistan has full access to the JF-17’s source code, which gives it significant flexibility in tailoring the jet for customer requirements.
    “Having the ability to do all the programming sends a very good message that whatever weapons they have, they can be integrated onto the aircraft. You don’t have to go China.”
    Flightglobal broke news of the JF-17’s first contract signing at the Paris air show in June.

    JF-17 director in an interview to the news agencies said that we are now manufacturing 100% of JF-17 in Pakistan

    He also said that 50 more JF-17 are to be delivered in the next 2 years

    Super Mushaq, ONLY!

    Jf-17 is not there this time, not for flight performance at least. Also i do not think it is even on static display this year.
    For whatever dumb reason!

    Damn greedy organisers demanding outrageous insurance costs...for JF-17 the premium demanded was $1.5 Million.

    Only Mushak, no JF-17.

    I wonder why they are forced to say all this.

    The very reason China and Pakistan aren't too fussed about it since they have multi-million order under the belt. ;)
    Nothing to do with ''Daal Roti'', we managed that a few times, it's more to do with insurance for the aircraft.....any way one wonders, why do our Rafiqs and Habeebis come running to us even when a few RPGs land on their soil. :D
