This might have to go to the exports thread, however nothing has been confirmed, it is just rumours at the moment. Mods, please move this post if neccessary.
Please dont shoot the messenger, I am just relaying new information...

There have been various rumours that Iran has been considering to buy the J-10.
China wants to be paid by hard currency and not by energy resources. "Business is business"
Chinese options are FC-1 and J10C (J-10CE?). IMO Iran might consider the FC-1 due to its connection to Pakistan, maybe to draw closer to them?
^^ This might be the sticking point. China has good relations with Israel and the other Arab States, I dont know how they will react when they realise that China is actively arming Iran. Tough job for the Chinese diplomats
Hey bud, we tend to shy away from Minnie Chan around these parts for very good reasons. She has a long, long, loooong history and record of writing nonsense. She has zero credibility. In fact, she's so bad at her job that if she were to become a funeral director, nobody would die.
