"Thunder over Dubai"
The painting depicts a JF-17 Thunder of No. 16 Sqn “Black Panthers”, flying over Dubai’s famous Palm Jumeirah. Thunder made its graceful appearance in Dubai airshow 2011, performing solo aerobatics and static displays with wide range of lethal weaponry.
BTW according to the latest SIPRI arms transfer database, Russia has directly supplied 50 RD-33/93 engines for the JFT to Pakistan. this qty is other than the 150 engines supplied to China.

No SD-10B, or are they for Block 2 ?true, 125 SD-10A rounds have been delivered from an order of 200.
I actually like the fact that Indians are thinking JFT is inferior.
The more they say this, the more it will become a surprise to them.
