    JF-17 Thunder .... Air to surface capabilities.

    JF-17 Thunder is truly a successful multirole fighter and is proven recently this year on 27th february . Thunder not only performed air to air sorties but was one of the birds who guided Stand-Off weapons to six 6 different targets along with Mirages.

    Its been speculated that Thunder guided Takbir or REK(range extension kit ) have range between 60-100 Km and was particularly used on 27th February. REK is actually MK-80 GPB bomb modified GIDS (Global Industrial Defense Solution) .

    List doesn't stop here in laser guided Thunder is equipped with LT-2 laser guided bombs . LS-3 and LS-6 GPS aided bombs which are based on Mk-82 , 250Kg and MK-83, 500 KG respectively.

    H-2 and H-4 SOW stand off weapons which are based on Daniel Dynamics Raptor I and Raptor II with range of 60KM and 120KM .

    Raad cruise missiles which was tested on Mirages having range of 350KM is also equipped on Thunder . Interestingly Raad cruise missile is stealthy as well a with low terrain hugging capability.

    Recently post 27th February 2019 another weapon on JF-17 thunder was tested but it's type range we're not disclosed , but the impact shown was quite surprising...

    Thunder Air To Surface capabilities are reached to peak with Aeslan Aesalod which is quite big punch in Guiding laser and GPS guided to targets with pin point accuracy .

    JF-17B no. 4 - aka 19-604 - spotted for the first time.

    Is this the first one to be delivered officially to the PAF?

    What does '6' mean ? (As opposed to batch number ) Is it the designation for B models?

    In this video, you can see RWR, Datalink, and MAWS. With KG600 SPJ (Self-Protective Jamming) Pod, you will have much more accurate azimuth and also range info of emitter.

    I personally haven't seen any pics with J-16 equipping the KG600, quite interested to find out if there are any (not offensive in any way, just curious to find out cause I heard that starting from J-11B its said that SAC produced flankers have integrated the ECM unit within the aircraft so no pod is necessary)

    Many modern fighters have internal jammers, but few, if any, of those have the range and effectiveness of dedicated jamming pods.

    Internal jammers are at best capable of jamming the seekers of ARHAAMs, but even fighter based AESA or earlier radars would have a good chance to ‘burn through’ that jamming, to say nothing of ground based SAM or warship radars. That’s why wild weasel aircraft always carry podded jammers; and air superiority fighters also frequently does so when facing opposition with good fighter and/or AWACS radars.
