we can make them right???
we can make them right???
There is emergency declaration between armed forces branches ...
PDF has officially been taken over by brain deads.
China is shipping these aircrafts, because PAF needs them ASAP to replace the mirage and F-7 fleet.
growing numbers of crashes is making PAF look bad in pubic.
Most of our people have no idea how old these planes are, and they obviously wouldn't because our media always mention them as "JADEED TAREEN"!!
And these aircrafts will most likely be block 2 as china was testing weapons (SD-10, laser guided bombs, etc) very frequently at the beginning of this year.
Was it only after the Bin Laden Raid that PAF figure out that they need to replace their aging F-7 Fleet?
Or was that visit to China planned before the Bin Laden Raid?
And even if our F-7 are aging, why are we asking for a plane from China that we ourselves are making?
Why didn't China give us the J-10 or why didn't we ask for the J-10?
well we know that china was suppose to deliver 50 JFT on urgent delivery after the OBL raid
and PAC will also keep running its manufacturing facilities
50 from china
and 50 by PAC
so the goal of 150jft by 2015dec is to be completed
our goal was 150 jft by 2015 end..
beside this china is financing these 50 JFT..
PAC will also be busy in making 50 more JFT over the 3 years.
The fuselages are already delivered from China. If any delivery is from China it is likely to fly.
Let's not start propaganda based on just pictures and no official fact.
The 50 JF-17 from China was just on media with no confirmation or word by PAF.
What about the engines?
Is it still those Russian Engines or now the Chinese Engines?
PAF needs 150 aircraft by 2014 ( the reason is crystal clear, 6-8 aircraft crashed this year alone), and at current pace (PAC producing about 20 jets/year) it seemed impossible.
China was going to provide us these aircraft no matter what, even if the bin laden raid did not take place. There is a reason why program is called "Joint".
And J-10 issue is much more complicated than just asking. China gave us a time slot that during this time aircraft will be delivered. that time slot is supposedly 2015 as per an analyst.
Another issue with J-10 is its cost. we can make 2 thunder for the price on one J-10, but J-10 has itss own pros.
This J-10 deal will be finance througj "long-term soft loans".
The bottom line is we don't have the money to get more than 36 J-10.
why cant they just fly them in
