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.

The real name is FC 1. JF is a farce.

don't be...we have observed what sort minds people in pakistan have.
where have u been..u just showed your knowledge (heard Indian chief rejected Tejas)
Tejas has not been rejected, Navy wants to invest in MK2 (as its heavy for naval operations, huge difference, they are supporting Tejas), indian are worried about muslims as we have many good muslims in india and u porkis are spoiling them.

Images show Myanmar Air Force JF-17/FC-1 conducting flight tests in China
Gabriel Dominguez, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
14 June 2017

Images have emerged on Chinese online forums showing what appears to be one of the first Pakistan Aeronautical Complex/Chengdu Aircraft Industry Corporation (PAC/CAC) JF-17 Thunder/FC-1 Xiaolong multirole combat aircraft on order for the Myanmar Air Force (MAF) conducting test flights in China.

Released around 13 June the images show a single-seat JF-17/FC-1 with the standard camouflage and tail insignia of the MAF being flight-tested at what appears to be CAC's airfield in Chengdu.

Diplomatic sources told Jane's in December 2015 that Myanmar had signed a contract earlier that year for 16 such aircraft at a unit cost of USD16 million.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, sources told Jane's in February 2017 that these aircraft will be of the Block II variant, which was first rolled out from the PAC's Kamra plant in 2015 and which, unlike the Block I variant, features an air-to-air refuelling capability and improved avionics and electronics.

China's state-owned Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC) - CAC's parent company - is believed to also be providing technical assistance to Myanmar as the aircraft replaces the MAF's ageing Chengdu J-7 fighters, which were exported as the F-7M Airguard and acquired in the 1990s.


China holds first joint exercise with Myanmar Navy

China's People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) has conducted its first exercise with the Myanmar Navy (MN): an important milestone in the projection of Chinese naval power into the Bay of Bengal and the Indian Ocean Region (IOR).

The exercise, which involved PLAN guided-missile destroyer Changchun, guided-missile frigate Jingzhou, and supply ship Chaohu, followed a port-call to Thilawa - the naval port of the city of Yangon - by the Chinese warships, according to the China's Ministry of National Defense (MND).

The visit was part of a wide-ranging six-month exercise in naval diplomacy by the PLAN task force, which left Shanghai in late April and will make port-calls in Asia, Africa, Europe and the Pacific. The four-day visit to Myanmar followed port-calls in the Philippines, Vietnam and Malaysia.

The one-day exercise in the Gulf of Martaban on 21 May was conducted with two MN ships: guided-missile frigate UMS Aung Zeya, guided-missile corvette UMS Anawrahta
