The officers of the Myanmar Air Force confirmed that the purchase of a JF-17 «Thunder» fighter jets was approved. They said the order was part of a deal signed by China, Pakistan , and Myanmar.

That was reported by East Pendulum.

Earlier it was reported that Myanmar Air Force will seek to purchase 16 JF-17 Thunder multi-role plane. The JF-17 could be positioned as a viable replacement for Myanmar’s MiG-29, J-7M or Q-5 ground-attack aircraft.

The Joint Fighter-17 (JF-17) Thunder (also named FC-1 Xiaolong ) multi-role fighter was jointly developed by Chengdu Aircraft Corporation (CAC) of China and is jointly manufactured by Pakistan and China.

The JF-17 / FC-1 is armed with GSh-23 dual-barrel 23mm cannon or GSh-30 dual-30mm cannon. The aircraft has seven hardpoints of which four are located under the wings, one under the fuselage and two mounted on the wingtips. It can carry up to 3,700kg payload.

Saudi Arabia planning procurement of JF-17 Thunder, Mashshaks, says Saudi air chief





ISLAMABAD: General Muhammad bin Saleh Al Qtaibi, commander of Royal Saudi Air Force, has said that his country is exploring hefty procurement from Pakistan JF-17 Thunder multi-role planes and Super Mashshak trainers for its air force.

In a brief chat with The News here on Sunday evening at the residence of Saudi Ambassador Abdullah Marzouk Al-Zahrani in the Diplomatic Enclave, he said that Pakistan is producing state-of-the-art equipment for defence use. He lauded the standard of Pakistan’s armed forces training and their commitment with their assignment.

General Muhammad bin Saleh, who is the first-ever Saudi air chief visiting Pakistan, said that he was greatly impressed by the working of the Pakistan Air Force (PAF). The ambassador hosted a dinner in the honour of visiting air chief of his country and it was also attended by host Chief of Air Staff (CAS) Air Chief Marshal (ACM) Sohail Aman and other senior officials. The two air chiefs later had an exchange of souvenirs. The Saudi air chief will visit the PAF installations, air bases and have talks with the sister air force before returning home tomorrow (Tuesday).

Earlier on arrival, he was received by ACM Sohail Aman at the Nur Khan base at Chaklala. General Qtaibi has been invited by his Pakistani counterpart ACM Sohail Aman. The Saudi Air Force is interested in undertaking joint exercises with Pakistan and intends to purchase defence equipment from Pakistan. It is likely that all subjects of mutual interest would come under discussion during the stay of the Saudi general in Pakistan. The Saudi air chief will also call on Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in Islamabad.

The PAF is attaching significance to the visit of the Saudis. The air chief of Pakistan visited Saudi Arabia at the invitation of General Saleh Al-Qtaibi in April this year and was warmly received in the kingdom. A royal protocol was given to him. He discussed matters of professional and mutual interest there. The air chief expressed satisfaction over the mutual cooperation between the two air forces and offered all training facilities to the Royal Saudi Air Force. He also shared the PAF’s experience of fighting against extremists in the ongoing Operation Zarb-e-Azab.

The Saudis appreciated the high standards of professionalism set by the PAF and highlighted the need for learning from each other’s experience. The air chief also visited the King Faisal Air Academy and met the PAF instructors and ground crew of Mushshak aircraft, who are deputed to Saudi Arabia.

The air chief lauded the PAF contingent for their valuable services and advised them to work as ambassadors of Pakistan in the brotherly country. The sources said the Saudi air chief had planned to visit facilities in Islamabad, Risalpur, Peshawar and Karachi.

Pakistan is a state which has murdered and raped more Muslims than Israel, so it's only natural they ally with the notorious anti-Muslim and genocidal regime in Burma (Myanmar).
The thing is they are not allies either, Burma boycotted SARC. Beggars like Pakistan cannot be choosers and have to bend over in front of anybody who will screw them

Pakistan can sell Chinese-made (with some Pakistani input) JF17s to 3rd world rogue regimes and dictatorships but that won't stop its potential implosion and break up.

The USSR was able to sell far more weapons and than broke up.

Anyway I think the 200 million + Muslims in India need to be educated about the true nature of the anti-Muslim state of Pakistan and its Punjabi imperialism. The Bengali Muslims of Malda in West Bengal or a few in Hyderabad (if there are any) need to realize that their ethnic counterparts, Bengalis and Mohajirs in Pakistan are treated as second class inferior "Indics" by Punjabis and Pathans in Pakistan.

They need to realize Pakistan is an anti-Muslim state which butchered hundreds of thousands of Muslims in 1971 whilst its head of army, Yahya Khan was having sex parties and alcohol.

They need to stop idealizing Pakistan as some sort of "defender of Islam/Muslims" and realize that it is a Punjabi military-state.

More military procurement from Myanmar ahead. The cultural ties between Burmese and Chinese are profound.

Myanmar’s Rohingya Conflict: Foreign Jihadi Brewing

The ethnic violence in Rakhine (Arakan) state in Myanmar is being complicated by the involvement of a jihadi group from the Indian subcontinent. The Harakah al-Yaqin’s call for jihad has put the Rohingya at risk along with their cause for survival and self-identification.

Piss poor failed states such as Pakis, Nigeria, Myanmar and Bangladesh account 75 ℅ of inferior Chinese Weapon export. So there is no surprise here.


The only surprise here is Pakis claiming FC 1 as indigenous to which even Mao would've been laughing his Ass out.

China gives shelter to 3,000 fleeing Myanmar

Chinese in Wanding reported stray shells falling across the border, and one villager's rooftop solar water heater was hit, according to China Central Television. Authorities in Wanding deployed more armed police along the border to maintain order.

Three out of the four ethnic militant groups involved in the fighting had not joined a cease-fire agreement signed between Myanmar's government and eight rebel groups in October last year, according to Xinhua News Agency.

The recent attack, which targeted economic infrastructure like bridges and shops in government-controlled border trade zones, was a way for non-signatory rebel groups to "declare their existence" and drag China into the situation, said Xu Liping, a researcher at the Institute of Asian Pacific Studies at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.

Chinese troop quality looks so weak and effeminate, they are not used to battle either. I envision sweet pickings for the Indian Army when we have the resources to fight a prolonged border conflict in the inevitable future.

so so called islamic super power (reality a begger nation) is going to sell few chinese products assembled in pakistan to a nation which takes pride in killing muslims.
islamic atomic power pakistan is giving very good example..way to do..
also, why should pakistan shy away, it has always shown since 1947 that it is better at killing fellow muslims than helping them then any nation in world.
1971 bangal genocide, did u forgot black september 6th sep to 1970 to june 1971 who helped jordan kill fellow muslims? also mayanmar will use these Jf-17 to bomb and destroy muslims in mayanmar.
good luck with your plan to lead and save muslim umha.

Burma is not a member of "SAARC". :nono:

Jet name is JF-17 ("JOINT Fighter 17"). Pakistan never said this is indigenous project. :rofl::tongue:

At least we are now capable of selling our fighter to other countries. I heard Indian chief rejected Tejas and Indians are so worried about Muslims. I am surprised. Most of the people here have zero knowledge about defence and geography.
