I have seen many jf17 with 2 ccms 2 bvrs and with 3 drop tanks......which Tejas ioc carries.....
A fighter which is operational for 10 years is still not fit to carry 4 bvrs
What's the point of carrying 4 bvr when your radars are not upto it. Bvrs are only good when you have the advantage of look first shoot first kind of technology with you. Jf17 are not going to get the first detection advantage with IAF anymore. As the rules of engagement have changed by us any jf17 approaching loc will get the required treatment even before jf17 have a chance to switch on their radars, shooting bvr will only remain a pipe dream for them.

Bhai that's the thought......light fighter s with 2bvrs and 2 ccms will do the task
"Bdw chineese are testing 4 bvrs with jf17
Also now wing tip station s of jf17 are cleared for sd10"....both are from Pakistan source...

But for iaf now Ada is readying Tejas mk1a with 4 bvrs
Our foc carries 2 bvrs and 2 r73s ....
As the whole battle scenario is changed to bvr one....so it's safe to have more bvrs

#Pakistan Aeronautical Complex has reportedly reinforced the wing roots on #JF17Thunder jets enabling the aircraft to carry a Mk-84 Bomb under each wing, mostly carried on centerline station under the belly by #JF17. Until now this capability was only available on F-16s. #PAF
Seriously it have your seen pics of it carrying 450kg bombs under-wing until now?.. This news is incorrect.

well, we had a discussion about this aircraft in another forum, all about if this aircraft is what we really need (argentina). When in reality its really a complicated one.

CPFH Block-2:
My reference is going to be the Block-2, since the B3 is not in production and costs for it should be stipulated
a lot higher.

We suppose that X Air Force flies 200 hours per aircraft per year.

After 3 years and a half the engine must be sent to russia for an overhaul (RD-93 TBO: 700hs lifespan 1400hs)(process takes up 8 months)

After 7 years (1400hs) engine 1 is replaced by engine 2 (new)

After 7 years and a half the aircraft must be sent to Pak/china for its "half life" revision (the whole process takes up 18 months). Its probable that the engine replacement and the airframe revision are done at the same time.

Pakistan JF-17 Jet Completes First Deep Overhaul in China

After 10 years and a half (2100hs) engine 2 must be sent to russia for overhaul (process takes up 8 months)


After 14 years (2800hs), engine 2 is replaced by engine 3 (engine 3 could be used since the airframe has only 200hs remaining)

Times:
Airframe: 18 months overhaul/revision in china/Pak
Engines: 2 overhauls for engine 1 (700hs) and engine 2 (2100hs), 16 months in russia total
Engine change: time not specified.

Costs:
cost of overhaul (equal to the 70% of the CPFH)
-Cost of 2 engine overhaul (engine 1 and 2) (witch is 50% of the value of a new engine by the 2 engines), about 3/4M $US

-Cell Overhaul Cost 50% of the aircraft's value, (9/11M $US)+ a new engine (3/4M $US)

Total:
-9/1M $US per overhaul of the airframe+ engine change
-2 engine overhauls 1 y 2 (3/4M $US.)
-1 motor (nro. 2) nuevo (3/4M $US.)
-1 Spare engine (engine 3) 200hs (430/570 thousand $US)

Total overhaul cost: between 15/19M $US

CPFH: 70% overhaul (15/19 M.) + 20% Fuel + 10% others
Total: 21,42/27,15M $US per / 3000 hs.

As you can see, it might be cheap to acquire, but in reality is pretty expensive to run

Afghanistan Buy 50 JF17 Thunder Jets From Pakistan,
Lol....no one will believe this .....
1.Afghanistan doesn't have money
2. Military equipment s like helicopter s and attack jets are being funded by usa
3. Pakistan is an enmy country for Pakistan
4. Though jf17 is cheap still usa won't buy them ...as comes from China
5. If Afghanistan wants them to buy on their own. .India will not allow

Srilanka was eager to by jf17 but India mounted pressure.....
