So they are using Tejas models to depict enemy aircraft in the second video. @shiphone @Sancho

Seems like Mirage during naval showdown section.

Yes they do, because they are replacing a lighter vintage radar with a more heavier one.
Not really, because weight increase does not require design changes of the fighter, not to mention that the new radars are build with the available space in mind, depending on the fighter. A J10 can use the same radar as JF17, or J16, but all of them will have it in different sizes depending on the nose diameter.

Air-cooled AESA.... :facepalm:

The Chinis seem to have a real lack of engineering when it comes to cooling things off as evidenced in their exploding turbofans.
you are right bro Chinese engineering is not too good but conventional AESA couldn't be fitted in JF-17 So we had no choice.

You do realise that at high speeds the friction caused by the air increases heat, not decrease. That is going to be one toasty nose cone.
Yes bro I realised it but it tested.build by heat absorbing composite alloys and somewhat streamlined and so somewhat decreased the friction and prevent it from toasting.

Well blk 3 will have design Change just like the difference between
Japanese F-2s and US F-16s
Not really, F2s are re- designed varient of F16s, with different / larger wings, that's not the case for JF17 B3, nor has that anything to do with the AESA radar, which we were talking about.

Yes that's what I was talking about we re designed JFT in blk 3 aa in the case of F-2 and F-16. So that KLJ-A AESA can be fitted inside it.
