PS: Also most interesting, now - so either it is the first prototype 3000 with the no. psed or the second one - it has a radome and eventually radar fitted.

View attachment 67242

Some observations..

* HUD looks different in both (bracket thickness is different)
* Air data probes moved under the nose
* Attachment for auxiliary payload, not a hardpoint
* EW antennas look different compared to the ones fitted in previous blocks
* Inner wing flap (grey color) looks like it was borrowed from blk 2B's wings

It look more sleek with an uniform color (metal radome) . Beside the radome change, it also lost a pitot tube on the right near the nose cone.


No operational JF-17 with a radar fitted had a pitot on the front of the radome.

On the right side of the fuselage, before the limit of the radome. It's present on the JF-17 with the metal radome but not the one with radar installed. I'm not talking about the one on the nose.
