    Let him be..they think their "new" toy is some great new thing instead of being based off the same venerable mig-21. While I am not saying that the chinese variant is incapable, the pakistani ones at the moment have no engines or radar. Even if they did, it would still be hard-pressed against base-line Mig-29As let alone the upgraded versions.

    As far as the MRCA contract goes, I only see it going to the M2ks getting in. No chance for American planes. The russian ones are bot expensive to maintain and we already have enough of the Sukhois and Pak-fas in line to keep the inventory up.

    Am happy they are getting such an aircraft to fight the IAF.
    JF-17 will replace F-7 and F-7P and some of the ageing mirages. The frontline fighter will be the 100 or so F-16A/B and C/D.
    Expect J-10 to join PAF in next 3 or 4 years to

    But then most journo may not see that difference.

    The chinese would take upto the next ten years trying to fulfill the requirements of its own forces even assuming that the J-10 is close to serial production and its production line run at maximum.
    How would they fulfill the pakistani order?
    And there nothing to assume that its capabilties exceed something like a early model F-16A/B.

    I wouldn't be to sure about that, there is too much secrecy about most chinese designs.
    PAF could opt for a J-10 with french avionics.

    LOL! Psst. A plane doesn't only has one side.

    Now there are just a few ways a plane can look like, next time we'll make one with tentacles for your pleasure.



    It's more like an F-16 don't you think? Considering its a derrivative of the Mig-35d (speculated and looks a lot same).

    Sure you can opt for it. The question remains whether it will be available for you. If that had been the case the paksiatanis would have been able to buy the M2ks and tom-tomming the rafales at the least. Instead you have to buy ex-libyan Mirage IIIs to strip for parts to keep the pak mirage fleet afloat instead of buying upgrades/parts stright from the manufacturer.

    The version of planes PAF gets will most likely be fitted with a chinese radar and will be able to fire chinese missiles only.

    *cough*pakdef*cough*
    Excuse me! Got a sore throat

    Mig-35? Hehe.. ic an see the similarities..




    The Idiot Pages

    The real Mig-35:
    http://www.aerospaceweb.org/aircraft/fighter/
    The mig list:
    http://www.aviation.ru/MiG/#33
    also has info on migs that dont exist!!

    and wtf is a 35 "D"??
    Even these guys dont know what a Mig-35D is. A mig 37 maybe. Perhaps you guys can tell them what it is since your super-duper new toy is based on it.

    Mig-35d, not the recent Mig-35 that has been relaunched n all that. Old project that didn't make it. From some pics I saw it looked a lot similar. Google it.

    AWESOME!!
