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.....
India gave them some Akbar's .
See what is akbar for indian airforce .

this is another year end....as usual, PAC handed over this year's JF-17 production yesterday. PAF's JF-17B trainer production is almost over. the first four came from CAC and PAC manufactured and delivered 8 last year. and in 2020 PAC completed another 14 which means all the 26 sets contract has been executed.

the three JF-17 Block2 export contract (NAF) is also executed in this year...

and new age is also opened- the JF-17 Block3 manufacturing is symbolically started with a riveting ceremony, we may see the first Serial Production jet in 2022...



tail number: 20-613 (first of this year) ,20-614



the last PAF JF-17B : 20-626 (SP-86B)

The porkis who claim jf 17 is indigineous should remember that it was designed by chinese,come in kits that porkis just assemble,all the parts are chinese and engine is russian.the only thing that is pakistani in it is the hinges on the canopy.claiming it pakistani would be just like india claiming su30 mki indigenous.its not even a joint venture between chinese and porks.they just assemble the junk that chinese don't want.

Actually JF 17 is a good design with big LAVCON which should give it a big lift and it should airborn much faster yet it takes double the time of Tejas to get airborn. Unless the design is refined and various parameters are optimized, you can never get the best out of that design. In my opinion, JF 17 has a big LAVCON and low wing loading. It is designed on some different philosophy on which Russians designs their Mig aircrafts. Because of heavy weight, low power engine and lack of aerodynamic improvements have further spoiled this design which was already rejected. A copy cat country like china could not have got anything better for a bagger customer like Pakistan. A cheater country made something for his stooge which does not have any choice.
