pakistan's JF-17 'Thunder' Aircraft More Primitive Than Any Fourth-Generation Fighter, Admits Its Project Director

33 comments

Air Commodore Khalid Mahmood, Deputy Chief Project Director for pakistan's JF-17 [FC-1] induction programme, was quoted on this at the recently held Zhuhai Air Show in China.

The latest issue of 'Aviation Week & Space Technology' magazine has an article that explores the role and importance of the FC-1 for the Pakistan Air Force [PAF] & export potentials, if possible. China has developed this aircraft, for all practical purposes, to help maintain PAF's fleet strength with a low-tech, inexpensive, all-metal-bodied solution as replacement to its existing fleet, that the country can afford - act as a pressure point on India's Western flank. NOTE: China's own Air Force has not agreed to fly the aircraft in its service, its cheap price-point notwithstanding.

"Others aim to use the JF-17 to replace their second-and third-generation fighters, says Khalid, adding that the JF-17's capabilities put it between third and fourth generations."

The FC-1 made its maiden flight in 2003. For perspective, baseline models of some aircrafts considered fourth-generation, include the F-15 [maiden flight early 70s], the F-16 [early 70s vintage], MiG-29 [maiden flight late 70s] - all took to the air three decades earlier, in the previous millennium. Technology upgrades imparted to them, since, have upgraded their designation to 4++ generation.
The first acknowledged crash of the JF-17/FC-1 occurred in November 2011, the very year PAF raised its second 'Thunder' squadron - the 'Black Panthers'.








Godspeed

    1. Indeed. China needs pakistan to create just about enough concern for India on its western border, splitting focus. 3.5G bird meets the requirement perfectly. pakistan military = China's Western Command

    1. Munna, we will talk about "Block 2" if and when it flies.
      Moreover, this is the admission of your own PAF officer in-charge of the induction process intp your AF.
      It reflects poorly on the caliber of your country's military officers, when you go to town challenging their views on matters that are supposed to earn them their bread and butter

    1. china already has 4 and will use them in the future but chinja will first complete its fleet of j-11 and j-10 aircrafts which are better than jf-17

    2. "china already has 4 and will use them in the future"
      As its developer for the pakistani customer, China is flight-testing 4 prototypes of the JF-17 Thunder. There is no evidence to suggest it has ever shown any interest in inducting the aircraft into its own service.

      On the contrary its is pakistan that is requesting China to induct them into its service. Economies of scale would mean pakistan would be able to buy it at a lower cost, meaning even at the present cost pakistan finds the JF-17 too expensive
      "According to Mr Mukhtar, the prime minister also asked his counterpart, Wen Jiabao, to consider inducting the JF-17 Thunder aircraft into the PLA"

    2. "pakistan plans to sell 300 jf-17 in the next 5 years"
      Plans to sell Object of your wet dreams. We will talk about such sale when the agreement has actually been signed. Until that time all talks of China selling one trillion JF-17s is all kite flying to give QWERTY Ghazis like you orgasms. Khayali Pulav

  15. I request commentators to use grammatically correct English with proper punctuations while posting their comments here. This is an English blog & responders are expected to reply in English. I am not going to trouble myself with people who fail to exhibit this basic skill.
