    Myanmar became the first country to purchase JF-17 Thunder jets from Pakistan, agreement signed
    ISLAMABAD: (Dunya News) – Myanmar has become the first country to purchase JF-17 Thunder fighting jets from Pakistan. It will buy 16 jets in the first phase while Pakistan is interested in selling over 2 dozen jets, reported Dunya News on Thursday.

    According to the agreement, Pakistan will provide services for looking after the jets as well. Both the countries had started talks on purchase of these jets in March. Sources told that negotiations are being held with other countries as well for the sale of JF-17 Thunder jets.

    We can evaluate the JF-17 through Myanmar. IAF should seal an exercise with Myanmar Airforce in future.

    First Sri Lanka, now Myanmar .............. Pakistani media should make up their minds about who they are actually selling their jets to :rofl::rofl:

    Next thing we might hear that Myanmar too denies any purchase because you never know anything about Bakistani media:pound::pound:

    If true then it is a victory for the mercenaries in Pakistan.

    Myanmar will purchase the Sino-Pakistan jointly produced JF-17 Thunder multirole fighter aircraft, according to local news reports.

    According to the Burma Times, Myanmar is looking to purchase a license to domestically produce the J-17 aircraft, which is called the FC-1 Xiaolong in China. If the report is accurate, it would make Myanmar the first foreign purchaser of the jet. Currently, only Pakistan’s Air Force operates the J-17 :laugh: and, as Ankit has reported, Islamabad is in the process of making a number of upgrades to the fighter jet.

    Although the report is unconfirmed, it is extremely plausible. To begin with, Myanmar has previously operated or currently operates a number of Chinese-made aircraft including: 48 NAMC A-5C fighters, 52 Chengdu F-7M Airguard fighters and 4 Y-8 medium lift transports. The Southeast Asian nation’s air force also recently purchased Sky 02A Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) from China, and built domestic copies of them.

    Most notably, Myanmar is also believed to operate 4-10 Karakorum-8 (JiaoLian-8) jet assault and trainer planes, which were also jointly produced by China and Pakistan. Some reports indicate that the deal for the K-8s also included a license in-country component.

    Myanmar also reportedly considered purchasing the JF-17 a few years back before ultimately deciding to buy Russian-made Mi-29s. However, the Burma Times report said that Rangoon’s aircraft has suffered from serviceability issues in recent years, and thus a locally assembled aircraft like the J-17 would make sense.

    Myanmar is likely to use the JF-17 jets in part to help combat the Kachin Independence Army (KIA) insurgency in northern Myanmar. The purchase of the JF-17 will also help Myanmar keep parity with neighboring Bangladesh, which is expected to expand its air force in the coming years through the purchase of Russian or Chinese-made aircraft. Bangladesh has reportedly been offered and rejected the JF-17.

    The Burma Times article noted that the JF-17 “can be armed with a variety of bombs and missiles including PL-5EII, PL-9C and PL-12 AAMs, C-802A anti-ship missiles, general purpose bombs, laser guided munitions and countermeasures on its 7 hard points (four underwing, 2 wingtip, 1 under fuselage). The aircraft’s standard set of armaments are supplemented by a 23 mm GSh-23-2 twin barrel cannon or 30 mm version of the same.”

    The report failed to indicate whether Myanmar will look to purchase the Block I or Block II of the J-17s, but it did note that the former is priced at $20 million per unit while the latter is going for $25 million.

    Regardless, Myanmar’s purchase of the J-17 would be a huge boon for China and Pakistan. Both countries have tried to market the jet for export but have thus far failed to receive any customers. Pakistan pledged in 2013 to begin exporting the jet in 2014. As The Diplomat reported last year, “The Pakistan Air Force has been assigned [a] target of exporting 5 to 7 JF-17 Thunder planes next year and discussions in this regard are under way with Sri Lanka, Kuwait, Qatar and other friendly countries.”

    JF-17 is not a good aircraft. Blk I is not at all liked by the pilots. The other point is the production capacity. It is too low for PAF's own need. That's why PAF has placed orders for 130 pieces of this aircraft from China. So we really don't know what is the truth here.

    1.Our F7 BGI is faster (Mach2.2 vs Mach1.6), has same weapons load (3000kg) and easier maintenance, F7's radar is junk but we have ground based AESA radars to augment Finally and most importantly it's CHEAP. There won't be any significant problem if we bought Sukhois a bit later.
    2. Burmese generals are corrupt to the bone. There is no set evaluation procedure for new inductions in Tatmadaw/ MAF. All pretty much depends on the whims of the general who is more interested in the kickback. I suspect a smart Pakistani salesman has sold PAF rejects, ie Blk I, to the Burmese.LOL!
    3. The classical situation will occur if the mercenary Pakistanis sell MANPADs to Rohingya Mujahids. We will then be able to witness Pak Thunder in the cross-hair of Pak MANPADs.

    Lets not beat around the bush. It is a Chinese product assembled in Pakistan similar to our MKI. Myanmar is China's captive market. JF-17 if priced at $15 million is good value for money (which Myanmar doesn't have much of in the first place). It would be better for them if they could afford SMT's but China can sell at cheap finance. Pakistan has little role here apart from following its masters instructions and maybe making some subsystems. IMO Myanmar should open up to the west more and then buy second-hand F-16's coz nothing speaks of 'strategic partnership' better than $$$$

    There is no bush here. This light weight fighter is Pakistan's product. Of course they got inputs from China. But in this sale to Burma, China is not in the scene at all. China also balances its sales of military hardware among various nations. Burma is no more a Chinese captive market - neither is BD.

    USA will have also try to get their hands on it to study and may be upset the CCP. India should study the software of his machine and find weak points to use it against PLAF and PAF.

    Are you joking. JF-17 is basically J-7 with LERX. Metallurgy and avionics along with the airframe are somewhat updated for being 50 years newer. Pakistan scores a big zero in aviation knowledge. It license produces a Swedish and a Chinese trainer, after properly renaming them. Thats it. And its even more laughable to suggest that China is 'not in the scene'. Have you looked at Myanmar AF's inventory?
