    Per the info available on the internet, RSAF fighter/ fighter bomber fleet consists of F-15, Tornado and Typhoons with Hawks in the training role.

    RSAF may have had a few RF-5E for Recce in the past and there is no Reconnaissance version of JF-17. Therefore don’t see which aircraft Thunder is going to replace.

    In my view this just a rumour based on wishful thinking.

    F-5 they had 110 of them and I don't think they have found good replacement of them.

    F-5, F-15, Eurofighter and now JF-17. Saudiarabia is soon 350-400 fighters in Air Force branches.

    Yes give them ANZAs so that they fall into the hands of ISIS, who will soon capture parts of KSA. I'm glad you're not a policymaker of the country/

    I believe its a better deal for them as we can see earlier what germans has done with them in a Leopard deal these things not gonna stop in near future as soon we will see these western companies supplying systems to Iran and if we consider democracy and rights situation in Iran and Saudia then Iranis are much better in front of the world and as time passes they will learn how to behave as they have lost a decade in their previous hard headed leadership now I believe their are hard days ahead for Saudia Arabia in procurement so its one of the best options available and if they invested in EJ-230 and some other european sub systems with JFT then nothing much left to speak.

    A single inch of Saudi territory lost to ISIS will activate a response from the Pakistani army. Unlike Iraq this will not be a capitulation without resistance. PA has a pact to defend Saudi territory and will do so. People who think otherwise need to know the real situation.

    Apart from all difference and hatred I go with this pact and support it with my heart and soul.
    If required may fight my self to save the borders of sacred land but not the kingdom.

    maybe they will go for a western powerplant and this will increase their confidence in the fighter. it has shown its worth in the Paris airshow so there is no lacking in power but American and European engines are at their disposal if they so desire.
    that said .. its not that easy to integrate an egine to existing aircraft since it is built with the engine in mind but then again there might be some posibility due to compatibility if the KSA so desires, definitely there are options for other things like avionics , radar and weapons etc ..
