For air cooled??? Against targets of what size? 5M^2 or 3M^2?
Specification Banner behind the radar is not clearly visible only few words are readable .... I think we should assume it is for 5M^2 RCS target

other features in this version are

- it is not fixed unlike previous version which was fixed plate version ....

- Angular Tracking is mention 200° it is not clear this angle is calculated after including the maximum movement of radar at sides or not

That would be double the range to detect a 5m^2 target over the F-16 Block 52 the PAF currently operates (where 5m^2 is detected at 105 km)

Any indication this is the radar going into the JF-17 Block 3?

They are using the KLJ-7A on the block 3. That has been settled. But you can be assured that the final version on Block 3 will have superior performance.

I feel like J-10 is quick & sharp in turns or can be but seems like PLAAF is bit conservative while performing aggressive display. As I noticed on couple of turns and a climb. May be I missed but seems like still with good power without using AB especially in couple of climbs. Just saying.

I think so too - given the symbology with twin fins. Since JF17 Block III is moving to a single piece MFD, larger HUD similar to that and I wonder how much of the FC-31 cockpit looks like the JF17 Block III cockpit?

Interesting use of cuustom MFDs to use all of the space alongisde the HUD !!!

Track 20 targets, engage 4.
That is sufficient since a typical air to air weapon configuration would be 4X BVR missiles for attack, and 2X WVR missile for dog fight. And there is no need for superior radar to guide a WVR missile in dog fight.
