Keeping the metallurgical work in sight nothing comes close to the F-16s we have got.Even the swedish machines aren't that effective to make it a exact match with the falcons in our inventory.
I am not saying that ,just quoting an aeronautical engineer.

Slave of USA? Which country is allowing American drone strikes on their own soil, even though their own citizens oppose it? Which country is begging the USA for billions in aid? Do I even need to answer?

India's indigenous industries already makes far more products than Pakistan likely ever will.
Comparing India with Pakistan, quite frankly, is a disgrace to India. I don't like to boast but the fact is that India is miles ahead of Pakistan in every sector, whether it be poverty reduction, defense, economic growth, you name it.

We compare ourselves with China because they are the only other country in Asia with some leverage over us.
ya the attacks, because we are fighting the terrorist war you are created for us. ya it is disgrace because when ever PAK is going to produce something you breaks the international laws. you make dams on the rivers which belongs to us. the war increases because you don't come on the issues to resolve. not to mention the disgrace you feel when facing some one with humanity and manners where you people act differently on PAK soil and IND soil...

Pakistan is like a whore and China is its pimp , USA is its customer and will do whatever and whenever it wants to do with her because it pays her . And India is not slave of anyone. Do you see Indian economy dependent on anyone . Do you see India looking for Aid to save economy from bankruptcy ? And we donot take USA drone attacks on daily basis and cannot do anything about it . so think twice before you say anything.
as far as the china production is concerned i think PAK missile technology is far ahead then india also nuclear bombs are made in PAK not in China. well if you used to ask them to make it for you that actually works that's another case?? the development and manufacturing is both done in China ask them to make satellite for you who stays in its own orbit not to become the garbage of the space. PAK economy is dependent because there are traitors like you. the day they will be hanged, the day of the NEW PAK. and if you think you are more powerful than us then you intro "* Mecry suits one who is powerful not the weak one ." is the cause of your survival.

well i really need to know about those now's and then's :p if its about PAK then i think history tells something else
Three wars waged by Pakistan to occupy kashmir but Kashmir still hosts Tri Color one war started by us to chop Pakistan and we know one nation on face of earth is Bangladesh.

So what else history tells? May be your air force won war because they(claims) to have shot down 2 times more and blah blah blah!

and if you are relating CHINA then...........
Hope you had your schooling in some good school not in madrasa.

go make something by your own and then come to compare your self with PAK.
So you make something on your own? Or you are jumping because your country just started doing what HAL is doing since 50s when it started licence building Gnat fighters. Man your country is still to do something like Ajeet on Gnat which HAL did in 60s. So until you get yourself able to do similar, refrain from making such lousy statements.

In the Public Interest.

Let us be clear about Pakistan fighting terrorists.

Pakistan is fighting the Frankenstein that they themselves created. I don't think Zia ul Haq who was the President of Pakistan was an Indian. Therefore, it is rather amusing that Indians are being blamed for Zia's chicanery that has backfired. The Bible says - As ye sow, so shall ye reap. Now, sit back an reap!

I hope you know that the Grim Reaper is a symbol of Death.

Now, reap with the Grim Reaper and don't start the usual of blaming everyone for woes created by yourselves.



In so far as the lack of waters in Pakistan, it is time you get your own house in order instead of the usual weeping and blaming others.

Here is what is being said in Pakistan:

Even our Indus water commissioner Jamaat Ali Shah and ex-finance minister, Dr. Mubashar Hasan agree that no provable water theft is being committed by India.
Pakistan water is Pakistan's fault
Maybe you should bone up on facts before going berserk with half coCked accusations that is popular in Pakistan because it helps to obfuscate the truth!

In so far as the crocodile tears about humanity, it would be better to do some heart searching and see how Pakistan's homegrown terrorists exported abroad around the world is wreaking inhuman acts on humanity!


well talking about the whores i wonder how you people call others well your country full of them even your film actors have to work in condom commercials to stop the growth of aids by asking youth to use them when required???? as far as the china production is concerned i think PAK missile technology is far ahead then india also nuclear bombs are made in PAK not in China. well if you used to ask them to make it for you that actually works that's another case?? the development and manufacturing is both done in China ask them to make satellite for you who stays in its own orbit not to become the garbage of the space. PAK economy is dependent because there are traitors like you. the day they will be hanged, the day of the NEW PAK. and if you think you are more powerful than us then you intro "* Mecry suits one who is powerful not the weak one ." is the cause of your survival.
Condoms maybe embarrassing to Pakistan's cloistered society. It is not so here. It is only taken as a mode to avoid unwanted births and adding to the population and also a way to control AIDS. Now, is that a bad thing? Only an adolescent mindset as obviously it is so in Pakistan is they type that finds sex and copulation to be something to be observed behind closed doors.

New Pak is but a pipedream if the manner Pakistan is sinking is a harbinger of things to come. First, get a hold over yourself and stop Muslims killing Muslims and it is ridiculous to feel that non Muslim can influence pious Muslims to kill Muslim. If it were so, then the propaganda that Muslims will never kill Muslim goes down the drain! Or are you suggesting that it is another daydream that Muslims won't kill Muslims?

China has no qualms to steal technology from other nations especially the US and Russia. There are enough evidence to support this. Good if China is doing what you claim she is doing. China is not Pakistan or is it? Pakistan is light ages away from coming any close to India or China in any field.

India does not think she is stronger than Pakistan. There is no requirement to think over something that is so axiomatic!

China and Pakistan Push Chengdu JF-17 Fighter for Export



ainonline.com - 8/7/2010

In the same week that the Chengdu JF-17 Thunder combat aircraft made its international debut at the Farnborough airshow, the product of this co-development between China and Pakistan was offered to Indonesia. The Pakistan Defence Minister signed a defense cooperation agreement with his Indonesian counterpart in Jakarta. The list of countries that the Sino-Pakistan joint venture is targeting for sales is expanding fast: it reportedly also includes Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Congo, Egypt, Iran, Nigeria, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Turkey, Venezuela and Zimbabwe.

At Farnborough, joint-venture partners Catic and PAC described the JF-17 as a multi-role light fighter with an "outstanding performance-to-cost ratio." The two aircraft on display were ferried to Farnborough but did not fly during the show, and officials were reluctant to allow journalists into the cockpit to view the three multifunction displays plus head-up display, HOTAS (hands on throttle and stick) and other avionics. The aircraft were shown with PL-5II IR-guided air-to-air missiles on wingtip rails and ferry tanks on the centerline and inner wing stations, leaving the outer wing stations unloaded. Mockups of five Chinese stores were displayed next to the aircraft: a C802A anti-ship missile; an SD-10A active radar-guided air-to-air missile; an LS-6 glide bomb; a WMD-7 targeting pod; and a KG300G electronic warfare pod.

Program officials said that a development JF-17 is now flying in China with a Chinese-developed engine, presumably the WS-13 Taishan. All other JF-17s are powered by the Russian-supplied RD-93 turbofan. On the eve of Farnborough, a Russian newspaper reported the opposition of Sukhoi and MiG director-general Mikhail Pogosian to a further sale of RD-93s to China because the JF-17 is competing with the MiG-29 for export sales. At the show, however, Russian officials, including Pogosian, played down this concern.

The plans for export must thrill the Russians to sell an engine for 4 million so it could placed in a airframe and resold by the Chinese for 35 million, this will never happen Russians will never allow one plane to be exported they will not risk losing their warplane market. Russians will stop any export of RD-93.

JF-17 Fighter Jet & KJ-200 AEW&C to Make Debut at Airshow China 2010

The Organizer of Airshow China 2010 is glad to announce that the preparatory work for the show is well under way with major achievements in terms of space sales and aircraft display. The total exhibition space has far surpassed that of Airshow China 2008-leading to the erection of a 3000 sqm temporary hall to house the increased exhibitors.

A new breakthrough has been seen in domestic participation, with China North Industries Group Corporation, to make its debut at Airshow China 2010 by setting up the China Weaponry Hall to showcase the homemade aviation equipment, airborne and air defense products, civil aviation and information technology. Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China, Ltd. (COMAC), the developer of China¡¯s large aircraft, has ordered a stand to present its image at Airshow China for the first time. China Aviation Industry Corporation, China Aerospace Science & Technology Corporation, and China Aerospace Science & Industry Corporation will once again display the most advanced aviation and aerospace products and technology. The PLA Air Force, a new member of the sponsor team of Airshow China, is set to participate in Airshow China 2010 with a bigger size, bringing with a majority of aircraft displayed at the 60th National Day Parade including the August 1st Aerobatic Team newly equipped with J10 Fighters and a series of state-of-the-art equipment. In addition, both new and regular domestic exhibitors have shown greater interest in participation. Statistics of the confirmed orders show that most of the regular exhibitors have increased the exhibiting space.

The overseas sales also see growth, featured by early and increased orders from the regular international exhibitors. By now, nearly all regular exhibitors have signed up with Airshow China 2010, including Russian Technologies State Corporation, ROSCOSMOS(IASP), Gifas, Safran, AgustaWestland, Diamond Aircraft, Kulite Sensor China Inc., Tyco Electronics, Parker Aerospace that have booked bigger stands. The show also registered a number of new faces, such as Carlisle Interconnect Technologies, Pelican Products Inc., Groen Brothers Aviation Inc., Carpenter Technology Corporation, Jet Mid West, Stanley Works (Shanghai) Co., Ltd., HELILITE, Schmolz-Bickenbach Group, DMG China, Tital GmbH, Acciaierie Valbruna SpA, D. Marchiori SRL, LLC Research and Production Enterprise PRIMA and FED Corporation. After years of absence from Airshow China, the world famous aviation enterprise Honeywell is also coming back to the Airshow China stage.
Various models of homemade aircraft that represent self-owned intellectual property right and state-of-the-art technology will make their debut at Airshow China 2010 and perform demo. flight, such as the ARJ-21¡ªa homemade regional jet made by COMAC, the Seagull 300¡ªa new style amphibious plane assembled in Zhuhai; the helicopter AC-313 which makes its successful first flight on March 18, 2010, the JF-17, a fighter jointly developed by China and Pakistan, the KJ-200 early warning aircraft and the MA600 regional jet.

The overseas aircraft participation is also encouraging. The first home assembled A320 of Airbus, Lineage 1000 and Legacy 600 of Embraer, AW109 of AgustaWestland, Citation Mustang and Grand Caravan of Cessna, have confirmed their presence at Airshow China 2010. Other leading aircraft manufactures such as Bombardier, Gulfstream, Hawker Beech, Dassault Falcon and Cessana are also expected to display their main models. Besides, the organizer of Airshow China is trying to bring in world famous aircraft like A380 and Su-35.
The eye-catching aircraft display is also featured by a large variety of helicopters. Eurocopter¡¯s EC225, Sikorsky¡¯s S-76, a 12 seat all weather civil transport helicopter and the latest heavy duty S-92, joined by homemade Z-8, Z-9, and AC-313, the biggest helicopter ever made by China, will be among those present at Airshow China 2010.

In another development, the Pakistan Air Force aerobatic team ¡®Sherdil¡¯ is set to stage thrilling maneuvers at Airshow China 2010 in the format of 4 K-8 trainers-an advanced military aircraft jointly developed by China and Pakistan. The ¡®August 1st¡¯ aerobatic team of the Chinese Air Force, newly equipped with J-10 fighters, will demonstrate a 6 aircraft formation on the sky of Zhuhai that brings the audiences a completely new visual impact.

The professional scenario of Airshow China 2010 is to be highlighted by a larger variety of high-profile conferences and forums. By joining hands with the Business Conventions International (BCI), a France based events & meetings specialist, Airshow China 2010 launches the first Airshow China B to B Meetings in an effort to provide a one-to-one meeting platform for vendors and buyers from global aviation industries and promote business exchanges and cooperation among the show¡¯s exhibitors. To reflect China¡¯s booming general aviation market, Zhuhai Airshow Co., Ltd and AVIC General Aircraft Co., Ltd jointly initiate the Airshow China General Aviation Industry International Forum, on which policy makers, scholars, and senior managers from the global general aviation industry will be invited to discuss on China¡¯s general aviation prospects. Dedicated to matchmaking forums & seminars, Zhuhai Airshow Co. Ltd. has set up a joint venture on a risk share basis with News Center of the Administration of Science and Industry for National Defense, and China Media Group. The new entity, making full use of the three institutes¡¯ respective advantages, has developed a variety of topics that will be presented as part of the Airshow China 2010 Aviation & Aerospace Summit.

In addition, Airshow China 2010 will continue to expand the Buyer Program, which enables the show¡¯s sponsors and supporters to invite more high-caliber trade visitors, thus improving the trade atmosphere of the show.
The Organizer of Airshow China 2010 spares no efforts in improving the show management and service, in a bid to build up an ideal destination for exhibitors and visitors. Effective measures have been taken to maintain the show site order by scrutinizing those disqualified trade visitors and exhibitors. Thanks to support from the Zhuhai local government, the exhibition site has been further renovated, with a new roof installed to the main exhibition hall, chairs and toilets set up on the show ground for visitors, and the land around planted with trees and grasses. All these renovations have contributed to a better show venue that boasts convenient access and environmentally friendly facilities. To provide quality services at the show site, Airshow China 2010 has also contracted a dozen of top brand service providers such as the Swisher HK for cleaning, the Cirkcle K for shopping, and the Byone Global Food (a Beijing 2008 Olympic Games certified contractor) for catering.

Airshow China 2010 is to take place in Zhuhai, Guangdong, China, from Nov. 16th -21st, 2010.

In the past there have been many fighters that are not meant for the specific roles but have met with astounding success courtesy the pilots that fly it. Now due to broken economy, the clocking hours of PAF pilots must be very less as compared to what we clock on IAF (around 300 hours I have heard). But during the cold war days when US used to take care of all Pakistani needs of defence, PAF pilots were seriously skilled and never hesitated. I must say, they have some records against us and Israelis that are definitely worth a look and therefore I will never underestimate them.

They're strong contenders in terms of training and know F-16s in and out, only second to Israelis. It would take considerable time for our fighter pilots to gain a serious qualitative edge over them and Chinese in an Israeli fashion since till now due to our corrupt defence leaders, we've lacked trainers at all levels. IAF cadets have been made to go from Deepak to Kiran to MiGs directly causing a lot of crashes that is embarrassing.

However, in future we definitely tend to have air superiority over mainland Asia with the Hawks, Sitaras and the imported and domestic basic trainers that HAL promised to deliver by 2014-15. As a relative of special forces commandos, I would say never underestimate our enemy. We might have fancier gadgets than Pakistanis, but Pakistanis have a strong will and are not limited to self-imposed weak restrictions unlike our highly politicized government.

What is contribution of the Pakistanis in JF-17 production?. As far as I remember, right from prototypes, engine testing, weapon testing& integration, avionics, radar etc are all done by China. I haven't read one article where Pakistan has contributed even a small nut or bolt for JF-17. Though they cite JF-17 as being cheap, installation of western avionics will make it expensive at least by 15-20 million. So, there is no real advantage of it being a cheaper air craft when people can get a more capable LCA or Gripen in the future.
