Thats ok. However some technologies from the Pakistani JF-17s Block 3 may have to get removed as the newest Block 3 allegedly incorporates some J-20 techArgentina want block 3
Does China have export variants of these missiles (I assume they have)? If yes then along with some political guarantees (not allow US access, send them to a US friendly country etc) I dont see why China couldn't sell them to ArgentinePL-10 and PL-15 which installed on J-20
This is an issue. They even want some local manufacturing and they dont even want to pay extra?China ask for 50m per aircraft, Argentina want a big bargain (best specs with bargain price)
IMO this will go down to China political leaders choosing to give a bargain so that they can gain a foothold in Latin America for further Chinese weapon sales. Argentine may know this which is why they are pushing for so many "perks". Complex issue, we will see
No country driven by purely commercial reasons would open a local production line for just 12 fighter jets.Argentina ask for local production line.
However this, as I mentioned above, will also be a political decision by China
IMO China wants access to Latin America weapon market, increase sales, draw them into their influence, remove some of US military influence, gain international recognition of its military products.
However Argentine knows about China's intentions and they will drive a hard bargain for their interests.
As this is a win-win situation for both sides, i dont see why this deal couldn't happen if a political agreement (or informal understanding) was reached.
