Thats why I am asking how cheap it is to just jettison those tanks.
Compared to the price to keep the jet airworthy & ops per hour... Very!

It has a drag penalty and can hinder your ability maneuver in times of combat.
Actually you don't jettison then unless you have to, so they'd get back a fair percentage of times.

So I'm new to Defence but recently A Pakistani on reddit claimed their JF 17 to be superior to anything "india ever assembled". I told him Tejas Mk1A is more comparable to JF 17 but according to him, China will always be ahead of India and will equip Pakistan for it to be ahead of Indian and JF 17 is more comparable with Tejas Mk2 which is "reverse engineered" Gripen. Now, i know this sounds like a utter rubbish but his Chinese Statements does make sense. In case they can just buy more J10CEs.

AFAIK Mk1 exceeds JFT in everything from MTOW to avionics despite its smaller size.
Mk1 A is far fetched.

Too bad China didn't equip Pak with best one. Pakistan barely could purchase any fighter in good numbers given its pathetic economy. JF-17 is affordable air power, not potent air power. It's more similar to a beefed MiG-21 (in fact JFT is based on Chinese F-7) which itself is a copy of MiG-21.

It couldn't pass an Indian RFI even in 1995. Just as any Indian fighter inducted after 1990s can't fit in Pakistani budget exceeded 20 nos. JFT is a vintage fighter rebuilt for poor countries whether Pakistanis like it.
JF 17 is more comparable with Tejas Mk2 which is "reverse engineered"
Tejas Mk2 is re-engineered Tejas Mk1 and a medium weight fighter in F-16V/J-10C category. JF-17 lies in class of MiG-21 Bison which India is no longer acquiring, closing the case.

Pakistanis may be making noise as acquiring sizable air power is a new and exciting thing for them. But kind of fleet and missiles they have is vintage and small by standards of any middle power, in fact a joke in front Egypt or KSA, leave alone India.
they can just buy more J10CEs.
Buying is not a just can in case of Pakistan. They have either to beg for aid, buy second-hand, lend their @$$ or buy in abysmally small numbers.

Purchasing J10C when you already have F-16V is anyway something beyond we can understand.

It's them who assemble jf blunder with 0 contrubution
We make and engineer tejas mk1, mk1a, mk2
Even when we assembled we had our own manufactured components infact many critical components where ours in so called assembled aircraft but they haven't even manufactured a screw for it
True bastards

Porkies operate 2/3rd JF-17A/B variants .. MK1 is better than those..

MK1A better than their future jf-17C.

MK2 very comparable to j-10C in A2A capacity.

Purchasing J10C when you already have F-16V is anyway something beyond we can understand.
"V" means viper /70/72.. which they dont have and US wont sell.. they have C/D - 50/52

Doesn't look like the payload is enough to carry all the armament?

@Indx TechStyle you need to see this. 97.5 percent earth is confirm HINDUphobic. We need 5000 nukes immediately.

How is this related to this thread? It is very much off topic. The mods should move it to the appropriate thread. Anyways check the date of the French Embassy’s tweet, it’s in 2018.
