    All or most of questions have been answered in detail and multiple times in the thread below
    Twitter Q&A on JF-17 Thunder Program with Horus & Oscar

    2. First you have define What is the difference between 4++ and 4.5?
    3. None of the blocks of JF17 will be 5th since a 5th gen A/C needs to be stealthy and that means the airframe needs to designed from ground up (scratch) and it won't resemble any of the 4th gens and thus it will be a totally new and different airplane. However next blocks of JF17 may see more use of stealth materials and coatings to reduce the RCS but won't be a fully stealth A/C.

    1- By the End of 2018
    2- 4++ Gen , Chinese Standards 3rd Gen
    3- No, Stealth Fighter Program is different from JF, it will be designed by Pakistan Air force.
    4- For now 16 , but it can raise up to 25 per year .
    5- Sinking a A/C is not a easy thing, JF carry CM-400 Anti Ship Missile that will be effective
    6- Chinese and Italian options are been looked at, decision will be taken soon .
    7- Nigeria will be first Operator soon .

    1-First flight will be expected in 2019-2020 and production will be started immediately afterward
    2- Both are same class

    3- ACM was clearly stated in the past that there will be no 5th generation or stealth version of JF-17 because if you convert JF-17 into 5th generation platform it will be no more JF-17 but JF-19 or something because it will mechanical and structurally different from JF-17

    4-Target will be 25 per year but we are manufacturing 16 per year currently

    5- yes Chinese CM-400 AKG which is hypersonic anti ship missile

    6- Block-3 will have AESA either Chinese KJ-7A or Italian Vixen-1000

    7-Are you talking about future orders or current ones? We are currently exporting it to Myanmar (BURMA) and Nigeria

    Hi,

    Welcome to the forum---actually the Shark Tank---.

    You may not / cannot sink an aircraft carrier---even with a nuclear strike---.

    Understand that entering service does not man that the aircraft is full fledged ready to go.

    Sinking a Aircraft Carrier is damn too difficult as the carrier always stays with its "Strike group" which include different types of Surface Warships & Submarine...
    The Carriers also have strong defencive capabilities, Long range radars, sonar detectors, fighter jets, Awacs, Sams etc...
    But it remains a Big Giant Target for the enemies, During the War Aircraft Carriers become the Prime Targets of the Enemies :)
