Very Comprehensive analysis by Vice Air chief Shahzad Chaudhry.
Very comprehensive ? This was a milquetoast analysis.

He didn't mention the SPECTRA EW suite which makes the Rafale so dangerous, no mention of the stand off weapons and other munitions either.

Also, there will be a LOT more than 36 by the end of it.

He also dismissed the J-10 as some sort of transitory temporary system for the PLAAF..

and the J-20s will not be for export, PAF will get the J-31.

He burst the J-10 bubble for a lot of PDFers towards the end looks like. Guess PAF is not that senseless after all.
He is retired for several years now. Every new induction is not told to every retired officer. Policy could change any time. Stop taking everything as word of GOD. The claim of J-10 and other jets could be true and could be false. Just wait things out. And if J-10 come it won't come as answer to Rafale for GOD sake that answer most likely will be F-16 new model. J-10 would be a Mirage replacement if claims are true.

When are the Thunder block 3s expected ?

Mr Chaudhry mentioned radar but skipped mentioning the Rafale's AESA, which is also a big advantage.

I wanted to hear that. ACM Shahid Latif also rejected J-10 for the same reason.

Acquiring J-10 for PAF would be taking a major step back and then trying to catch up. Plus it will come at the cost of further improving the JF-17 Thunder program.

J-20 is the way forward if Pakistan feels an immediate need for it during the development phase of Azm.

PAF does not give a damn about the magical radars on Rafales just like it didn't give a damn about the 230+ Su-30 MKI mini awacs. That's something only special for you gullible Indian people.

Aesa is not a big deal. Block3 will also have AESA to counter Indians.
