Unless a third country comes and support itThe airframe and the FBW are very closely related. If PAF is looking build its own airframe, it will need it's own home grown FBW, and FBW are one of the most complicated parts of developing a plane. Ask the germans when they tried to do one for the Typhoon !!!
The lack of homegrown experience of quite frankly anything in anything will become apparent to PAF very soon. Hell, they dont even make the full airframe for the JF17 !!!!
It needed to have seeded certain core technologies over a decade ago to pull off Azm, it has not ...
It does seem that alot of the TOT tech will be carried over from the JF17 programme(mission computer, radars, etc ...) but even then there is a lot of missing technology...
PAFs usual "bluster" is going to get a wake up call soon as far as Azm goes, of that I am convinced now.
Will chinese do that, i am not sure unless they ditch their economic thinking and think strategically
Will turkey do that..no as they would want PAF join turkish program
Will we pay off some european country like india ..neither we have the money nor the pending major defense deals to lure them
But turkey can ask pakistan to joineven that report was by Faseeh Mangi
so you can imagine the degree of actual substance is low.
Turkey will not join Pakistan-China joint program(atleast in near future) because Turkey doesn't have political leverage to do so..It cant risk getting sanctioned as a NATO member when its already getting its S400 deal ratified which it was able to sneak through during Trump era when NATO-US rift was all time high and Trump-Putin love affair was all over the news. They cancelled a missile defense system deal with the Chinese in 2015 due to pressure from US and EU not just that they embarrassed Chinese by releasing this news at G20 summit.. That was a purchase not even a joint program, so what are people here thinking of that Turkey really does independent actions regardless of geo political situation. no it doesn't, just like other countries it also has limitations and real politique prevails. Even Pakistan was able to commence the DRUZBAH joint exercise with Russia and the Mi35 heli purchase during Trumps time, every state makes its move in the time and place of its choosing.
We are still major non nato alley
So turkey will not get the stick as it got when it bought s400
The problem is opposite i suspect china will be upset if we do so
