    actually, redesigning the airframe will not take too long, especially if you use a smaller french engine. now, you can always bribe putin...

    lol!

    Well thats nice, maybe I should stop hating Putin...

    Maybe and export engine the Russians can give that is similiar to the RD-93???

    and also that wouldn't piss off Russia since Russia declared that they won't export engines to Pakistan as of the Russo-Indian Pact of friendship in the military sector

    WS-10A is actually similar to the engine used for F-16. It was designed from an American engine.

    WS-13 is the one that is suppose to replace RD-93. It is supposedly a reverse engineered version of RD-93.

    Egypt can always use a trainer like K-8, no doubt. I don't really see much use for the JL-9. Its abilities are all either already existing in the K-8 or will exist on L-15.

    I think of Egypt now like the Pakistan of the 70s and 80s, about to be sanctioned....

    WS-13 is not out yet.(If it was, China would not need to use the RD-93.)

    That's a pretty wild airforce Egypt have.....

    it definitely won't be as sweet as that new South Korean trainer. Still, I'm hoping for the best.
