    JF-17 is the best replacement for their Fighter Jet F-5. Euro Fighter is way to advanced and expensive and also KSA can get JF-17 with complete TOT, which in the end would give big boost and also experience to Saudi Defence industry.

    Pakistan should start focusing on jet engine tech now.
    They are going to buy large no directly from Russia, should negotiate on TOT also.

    The arms market it to lucrative,
    Western countries and the US will not let a good customer like KSA buy weapons from Pakistan.

    Saudi's want to develop their aviation industry, hence the interest in JF-17 because of manufacturing capability transfer. They can make money off of it as well as Saudia Arabia could become the second assembly line to meet orders for export clients, currently JF-17 only has an assembly line in Pakistan and that has back logs for domestic requirements. There is no assembly line in China for JF-17s as Chengdu has geared its facilities for other projects. Secondly Saudi's have huge stakes in some EU defence companies so their parts will likely make way to thunder integration.

    Another secondary angle that has sprung recently will be to get pilots from Pakistan to fly these jets against Yemen militants and ISIS.

    Its Jf-17 for saudi's or potentially for Iran. We can make them buy 4 to 6 squardran of it i.e if we play our cards right.
