    Why not ?

    I'm sure in mind of Ukraine's assistance in so many fields or military cooperation a favourable condition to sell it could be found !

    Again budget they have just enough for modernised fighter retired and stored in more don' t need such aircraft need true combattants the situation is a little better than 3 year ago but only about 60 Mig-29/Su-27 are operationnals about 15 in more for Attack 31 Su-25 enough the need is not there.
    It is a big country about 500000 + km2 they need in more with neighbour... at less 100 Mig-29/Su-27s and it is a minimum.

    IMO one of the Zambian birds ... and most likely yes with the PESA.

    The PESA on the L-15Z and B is certainly intriguing, not just its capabilities but also its origins and development. AFAIK, the only air-to-air munition its been seen with is the PL-5II but surely it must have been tested with others as well given its known capability. Its sale to Zambia is probably going to be indicative of the configuration it will most see export in, few countries in need of advanced high performance trainers would opt for a Chinese aircraft over a Western or Russian model, but as a light multirole aircraft it could see even more exports.

    it is rare to see the two types of Chinese advanced training aircraft - JL-9 and JL-10 - taken in the same photo.
