In my opinion JF-17 would be better then IAF MiG 21s and maybe at par with MiG29s, but it would be no match to the frontline SU-30 MKIs.
In my opinion even J-10A can't stand a chance in the present configuration against SU-30 MKIs.
Maybe a later version of J-10Bs might be at par with present Sukhois but who knows where sukhois would be at that time when they'll have the expertise and equipment of Israel, Russia, USA, Europe etc at their disposal without any chance of santions imposition.
In my opinion JF-17 is a good fighter to start with but PAF still needs to build a serious fighter bomber which could be at par with those of its adverseries.
