Russia will unveil it during MAKS21 airshow. Not J-35 but new Russian single engine fighter with 5th gen characteristics.Checkmate = j35 ?
It's too much of such claims. Almost everyone claimed so there's no royalty of claims in internet world. Secondly, there's a source that claimed that 2 different types have already landed too. Having said that, time for us to share opinion instead of convincing people to believe me.I was told last year by the same source which told me about Pakistans purchase of 40 J-10CEs that the PAF had also purchased a dozen J-20 fighter jets.
No one believed me since the last 6 months when I said that the first 2 squadrons are expected to arrive by the end of the year but it surprises me that might source also mention the purchase of a dozen J-20s and was adamant about it.
It may be more likely that the PAF may be purchasing a dozen J-31/J35 rather than J20 but my source stood by his word. So far his own sources have been on point.
There would be value in the PAF purchasing a few dozen J-31/J-35 before maybe eventually starting its own production, but the J20 would be of immense value for the PAF and they might have concluded that a few dozen (24) might be reasonable to purchase (in batches of 12)?
The source of the Source, is well known to me. My suggestion is that, don't believe into everything.
