    Pardon, but are we here at the SDF a bit better that this? If we look at every article that is published in the net while NOT checking the facts then we indeed would believe that China sells Pakistan the Liaoning.

    So, come on and do you homework instead of look for stupid reports with wrong facts only since they fit an agenda.

    Well in that case can you be kind enough to put forth any other addition documents that states any information that I happened to miss. Because I have done some research and reading upon this and I have yet to see anything that tells the other side of the story.

    Underside of JF-17:

    Underside of FTC-2000:

    It is obvious that latter was very heavy MiG-21 heritage and former doesn't. General layout and aerodynamic configurations are very different - JF-17 represents more modern 'blended' design. Undercarriage arrangement is different, etc.

    If anything JF-17 resembles more F-16, though that influence might come via Izdeliye 33.

    If anything, from below, I think it has more F/A-18 design influence. The frontal lift surfaces and the side intakes, it looks a lot like a single engine F/A-18.
    It looks nothing like the MiG-21. It looks different than any other fighter in service actually.

    http://www.hitechweb.genezis.eu/fightersSF02.htm (Scroll to 'MiG izdelije 33')

    The F-7M >> Sabre II >> Super 7 essentially ended after 1989 sanctions. After the SU fell, CAC chose Mikoyan as the consultant because of their single-engined fighter design. The JF-17 is essentially the MiG project but with side-by-side intakes instead of the belly intakes.

    If you compare the Project 33 the wind tunnel model in the second pic, and FC-1, you'll see the earliest prototype of the FC-1 had intake LERX resembling the left side while the final version ended up with right side

    something about future jf-17 upgraded with TVC version of WS-19. The articled sourced the "aerospace model" magazine which claimed that this image which was taken in November 2018 showed two JF-17 with TVC engine performing flat spin maneuver.

    That makes so much sense since the original magazine was about RC aircraft models :/
