    the saudis are interested in this jet but only with the ej200 engine as thats the same engine thats on the eft and the rd-93 and the ej-200 are similar in thrust the ej-200 has a complete combustion so no black smoke @Irfan Baloch

    This deal is a must to be done. It's just a matter of time. The Saudi's want to have permanent presence by a Pakistani military's contingent. They'll get support equipment and a couple of squadrons will be purchased. No doubt about it.

    Now in the broader context, they do need their F-5's and other trainers, etc. Spending a lot of money on trainers, vs. using a fighter jet for lower end operations (due to EFT and -15's available in numbers), is a win win situation. Its force multiplication and more cost effective. Plus it gives them something to manufacture.

    This will take place with a deal with France to supply engines, missiles (similar to EFT) for the future JFT-S. I'd imagine this deal is on from block III. This also gets Saudi's sort of have two tiers of defensive equipment and better relations with Pakistanis and China.

    Everyone wants alternatives in the world today. I want another girlfriend and a second sports car too!!!

    true, i agree with you the jf17 is perfect. it's a light multirole fighter also the dual seat version can possibly be used for a lift program so yeah, win win but they will use ej200 engines instead of rd-93

    @Viper0011. @MastanKhan @Zarvan @Horus @WebMaster @waz @Jango @Manticore @Jungibaaz @Jango @Chak Bamu @T-Faz @TaimiKhan @Slav Defence @araz Where are the Saudi members?


    On topic
    Last year there was this news that the JF -17 has been offered to KSA and would be part of SANG but not KSA Air Force.
    There were a few threads too regarding these. Where it was discussed and then it was also rumoured that JF-17 would be powered by EJ-200 engine.

    Here are the old links for this news.

    BS. Saudi is nothing but a US stooge, will never buy a jet from a Muslim country as long as it is oil rich.

    Saudi is US stooge only at defence pk.
    Which Muslim country produce jets other than Pakistan?

    Saudis just don't fit in black hearted Pakistani slaves of khumeni, otherwise it was non other than Iranian stooge, aka Asif Ali Zardari, who tried his best to hurt the JF17 project, hence no deal with KSA.

    Why UK is not blamed there?
