Egypt also could have no interests to be pressed by a embargo of US spare parts (for example: look to Venezuela) - so to be independence, they should look for other contractors and liczence production to;
the next export to Egypt (and licenc after some years) could be the FC-1/JF-17 MULTIROLE FIGHTER AIRCRAFT

There's a decent sized market out there for nations looking to replace their old MiGs and Mirages. For an example, Egypt has over 700 J-6/MiG-19, J-7/MiG-21, Mirage V, and F-4E's.

The problem that FC-1 is that the plane is new and not considered mature technology. You'd also face stiff competition from other countries, such as US F-16, Russia's MiG-29, Su-27/30, France's Mirage-2000, and even Sweden's Gripen. Sweden offers a lease if you're on a tight budget.

In case of Africa, countries like Sudan, Ethiopia, Eritrea, & Angola already operate Su-27's or MiG-29's. It'd be very difficult for the FC-1 to compete against Russian combat aircraft, plus the Russians are not likely to allow re-export of RD-93 power plants that'd cut into their own export sales.

WS-13 will be available in a couple of years.

However, the FC-1 may still be rejected since it is not combat proven or mature enough. Perhaps people still don't trust Chinese designed planes.

china needs to prove it somehow...maybe since it's forbidden to export it's rd-93 engine to pakistan, it should fing an alternative while using the engines to power 100 indegedous fc-17s. then use it aginst the cvbg's super hornets. if they can get a few kills and come out with only small losses, its definitly worth it.
