several websites claim it to be any one of the following but nothing is fixed till now, means there is still an important component missing not to mention about the engines,the w-10a failed recently and china has ordered 100 more al31 from russia.a question I have asked many chinese and pakistanis and no one gave a proper answer with a link is what radar will be on the J-10?
here is a post regarding the new fiar grifoi am not familiar with that radar, but they want to build a plane for 7-10 million which seems pretty low.
thats very true but with limited budget you cannot expect an elta or a phazotron.this radar has being shortlisted for the pakistani version of j-10 as confirmed by the reports the chinese versions might still get a different one.even this radar may not come at a cut-rate discount but there dosen't seem to be anything special about it, it might even be an old F-16 reject hyped up for other markets.
maybe some some knowledgable pakistani can answer this but what can they do they do not have any other option its the best they can get.do the pakastani feel comfortable in a piecemeal plane?
they are just working on the old russian designs,reverse engineering them and supposedly making them better or worse i dont know i reserve my views on the j-10 till i see it on a full scale if not a conflict then atleast in military exercises.after poison baby food and lead in toys i think China qualifies to make a good warplane.
As far as my evaluation, J-10 is definetly a formidable plane as far as china's requirements are concerned. Since it is homegrown and hence they don't require to worry about any Logisitics and Maintanance requirements during wartime.do the pakastani feel comfortable in a piecemeal plane?
