Re: JF-17/FC-1 Fighter Aircraft thread

Has anyone seen the latest AFM report ? ... there's a nice CG of the proposed trainer.

I will try to find it. (edit: found !!)

Somehow I think the pilots would be bigger in reality.

Re: Test Flaws Postpone JF-17

Probably, based on avionics alone. The JF-17 probably has a pulse doppler radar and the last RWR/ECM suites. And IRST is said to be in the works.

Re: Test Flaws Postpone JF-17

I just wonder is JF-17 better than the latest version of J-7?
Yes of course. Greater payload, more manouverable, capability to fire PGM and BVR either already or in advanced trials. And more can be added depending on the customer's request, while J-7 was fairly limited in that regard simply due to its size.

Why'd you post in this random old JF-17 threaad when we have a perfectly functional one?

@geographer

I didn't noticed there were two JF-17 thread.

Since JF-17 was better than J-7, why won't China replace its J-7 fleet to JF-17? Because I think its quite awkward to sell a weapon that your own country does not even uses it. That would be difficult. At least even with China just operate somewhere like 100 planes.. That would be a good number.

I think you're replying to me?

Anyway, it could be because JF-17s are still too expensive and offer too much capability to replace J-7s the way the PLAAF wants to.
I don't think it's really awkward -- the US F-20 tigershark was made purely for the export market (though it was cancelled later).

You are correct ! Therefore I just merged both treads.

Please continue here.
