    Aren't there any videos of the FTC-2000 display?

    Guy, you have requested too much. That's the specs for Eurofighter 2000, not FTC2000!

    It's quite amazing that the new design managed to remove the requirement of the huge rear ventral strakes. Anyone knows which particular design change negated the need of the strakes?

    As Siegcrossbow has already said, its quiet the opposite, the FTC-2000G is designed entirely for export. A BVR capable aircraft, with an augmented LERX on a new airframe. Not a trainer aircraft but a supersonic, inexpensive combat aircraft, much like the Koreans have done with the FA-50. While it is undeniably based on the old MiG-21 design, complete with archaic mechanical control surfaces, if anybody was serious about buying it as a trainer they would get the baseline model rather than the G model. As crazy as it sounds as late as 2012, Bangladesh was still receiving it's order of newly built F-7BGs so there is still a market for inexpensive supersonic fighter aircraft. As aging airframes such as the MiG-21 and F-5E get older and older, it seems Guizhou is sniffing out a niche for a sub JF-17 combat aircraft.

    I thought they already bought (or ordered) FC-1?

    I strongly believe the FTC-2000G would be an ideal budget fighter for the Sri Lankan Air Force. What is the fly-away cost of the FTC-2000G? FC-1 fly-away cost is at least 20 million and the full deal Pakistan offered the SLAF came to around 35+ million per bird.

    FTC-2000G can carry air-launched anti-ship/cruise missiles:

    The FTC-2000G really deserves a category of its own, since its weapons capabilities and sensors are closer to that of a fully-fledged fighter than of a trainer. These weapons include the FT-series satellite-guided bombs, CM-102 anti-radiation missile, PL-5 and PL-12 AAMs, C-704K anti-ship/air-to-surface missile, C-705K anti-ship/air-to-surface missile, unguided unitary & cluster bombs, and rocket pods.
