lets wait and see i feel so bor in these threads of F-16s AND THUNDERS.nothing new here is just wait until first batch come out from PAC.
appy Defence Day to all of you,
May Pakistan Live long,
bro, protoypes are meant to take the plane even beyonf there limits. thats is what they are made for.
moreover the limits of an operatioal plane are ste by analyzing the performance of the prototypes!!
F-16 Block 52 were used to test many of the systems used in F-22 and JSF prototypes and planes. Summarizing all above; Prototypes test (airframe + other systems) - engines; If it is a single engine plane... Test Beds test (other systems+ enignes) - air frames;
J-8 was used new Chinese engine of future J-10.
Hope this will explain my point of view regarding prototype and a Test Bed.
so that ends the confusion here and now,,
sorry sir, you are the genius and have every thing clear in your mind,,,
i must have been the dumb here,,
it is my guess jf-17 blockI=f-16 block 30
well guys there was a post regarding a question that with procurement of noew LJ17 planes will the number of squadrons also go up and if it will how many squadrons will be added. i answered him that for the time being the JF17 will be replacing the existing fleet so we may not see any increase in number of squadrons. my bad that i dont remeber that who asked this question but relavent to JF17 project i will post a report i just found regarding to this issue here in this thread:
http://www.f-16.net/f-16_forum_viewtopic-t-10891.html (Point No.15)ACM T Mahmood interview (September 2008)
In 2015, PAF will remain at its current strength of 15 Squadrons. But the capability will be significantly enhanced by the composition of the ''high-tech and force multiplier'' equipment.
i hope this help you Mr. XX!
