No integrated EW system AFAIK, IDK if pods will be carried.
More and more reasons for PAf to go to J10,
Jf17 blunder3 is at best an exercise to built up number as per the famous quote quantity has the quality if its own.
Bunders 1 2 or 3 will be easy pick for Indian fighters or air defenses if they even venture near battlefield.
The engine itself is insufficient to provide the power required for modern avionics and for carrying external sensors will add more weight and require even more power.
I would say whatever block the bunder scores little in A2A role, A2G I can see some utility but not sure precision will be high for any stand off weapons and in case it goes near the hot area its toast.

There is no parallel to Pak Army when it’s come to fraud…. Only Pak army know how stupid their Awam is.

Before first flight of jf17 it was supposed to be equal to f16 but the the debut it’s become clear that jf17 can’t be equal of f16.

Then PAF promised 6th generation upgrades but after 2 upgrades (block 2 and block 3) jf17 yet to get basic 4th generation systems.

JF 17 is a Dabba, PAF just install IRP, AESA radar, MAWS and long big BVR missiles for show off. Once photo session done they remove all these systems.

The problem with these "brochure" specifications is, they are hardly realized in the actual platform. Classical Chinese strategy of over-selling something and you later find out it was never there.

For example -
  • Double-rack pylon for SD-10/PL-15 is promised since Block-II but is only present in digital media or static airshows. It is yet to be realized in actual flying configuration.
  • JHMCS is a pretty niche technology and "custom making" them for each pilot is something that will shoot the cost way high. Also doubts if it can be actually "better" and lighter than european/american models.
  • All the advanced electronics promised, the tech from J-20 and J-35, all seem very futuristic. What is not specified, is how the cost will shoot up with such equipment, and can Pakistan really afford it, and thus if it makes sense for Pakistan to even get it.
Till now, JF-17 has remained a paper tiger, another trademark of Chinese weaponry.

and how they will get the electrical power if they will install electronics from j20 which has more than double the power available than jf17 ??

pure dumbass marketing :pound:
