quick update guys

great documentary inside PAC

highest serial we seen is 2P-84

I see what looks like 2P-83 and we have 2P-84 and we have 2P-82 we didnt see 2P-81 but did see 2P-80, thats 5 x JF17A Block II

so the switch happens at 2P-79B to 2P-80 from dual seater to single seater

only thing I dont get is 2P-73B is labelled as 12th and 2P-77 is labelled as 13th?

all these are now now mixed with exports so it makes the situation more complicated

however one thing is clear

PAC Is building JF17A Block II + JF17B Block II simultaneously

and it would suggest that we have built

50 x JF17 Block I
and with 2P-84 thats total of 134 x JF17 all variants

can someone remind me what were the numbers at 2P-61-2P-69?

Here is 2P-83

2P-61 is a single seater ....

2P-68B was shown as the fourth aircraft this mean manufacturing of dual seat started from 2P-65B and in this case 2P-77B as 13th aircraft seems correct
  1. 2P-65B [1st Dual Seat Aircraft]
  2. 2P-66B
  3. 2P-67B
  4. 2P-68B [4th Dual Seat Aircraft]
  5. 2P-69B
  6. 2P-70B
  7. 2P-71B
  8. 2P-72B
  9. 2P-73B
  10. 2P-74B
  11. 2P-75B
  12. 2P-76B
  13. 2P-77B [13th Dual Seat Aircraft]

Now as far as your query about 2P-73B labeled as 12th aircraft is concern this particular airframe might got completed late than planned schedule probably because of the rejection of some subcomponent(s) therefore
