    Grade A volley guys :omghaha:

    I don't think Saudis are interested in manufacturing. If they were, their arms industry would be a lot different considering they spend bajillions on procurement and were in good books of Lord Bush and his predecessors.

    Not going to happen. The Saudis like their stuff fancy whereas JF 17 is targetted at countries with limited budgets.

    Air superiority fighters suit Saudi air defence more. However, JF-17 has developed fine into true multi role, challenging the market of similar class fighters.
    After King Fahad, Saudi Arabia seems to have drifted away from west, and is already exploring alternate markets and JF-17 is one tempting pop.

    I would love to see JF-17 in the GCC, but I also doubt the accuracy of this report.
    The Sauds have money and they always go for best-in-class hardware. If they want a multi-role aircraft , they can easily get Vipers or Hornets with significant ToT. They have the money and clout in Washington for this to go through. There is no industry that would deny sales to KSA at any time (as long as there's oil under its sands).

    This should be the right deal, but I have no hopes from the current Government as likely they are also involved in his sentence their.

    If it was going to happen it would have by now. The Saudis have the money, they don't have the same exhaustive procurement polices as others thus a govt-govt deal would be processed and cleared in a flash.

    America is off limits and hence no such complaints.
