it is reported that Nigieria is import 15 J7 with 230M USDs.

why is even J7 so expensive? do Nigeria officals pocket some bucks from the deal?
The Federal Government had in 2005 approved $251 million for the purchase of 15 Chengdu F-7 fighters from China. The deal includes 12 F-7NI single seat fighters, and 3 FT-7NI dual-seat trainers. The $251 million package includes $220 million for 15 aircraft, plus $32 million for armaments, including 20 live PL-9C AAM, 10 training PL-9 rounds, unguided rockets, and 250/500 kg bombs. Nigerian pilots began their training in China in 2008, with delivery of the aircraft to begin in 2009.
