    Any speculation what the PD radar in the FTC-2000G could be? Compatibility with the SD-10A/PL-12 and the export-centric nature of the "light fighter" would seem to point to the KLJ-7?

    What are the bomb-like things under its four wing pylons? I hope they would cease this trainer. They will hardly find a buyer except PLA.

    FTC-2000G is less of a trainer than a budget fighter. Also I think either Sudan or Nigeria or Myanmar has preordered this plane.

    In the future I hope they add AESA radar, thrust-vectored WS-13E, canted vertical stabilizers, and semi-buried hard-points on this bird ;).
