I'm thinking in the range of 25-30 million with chinese avionics.
Is it final by now that those will be fitted with Russian AL-31FN?
The are fitted with Russian AL-31FN's but Russia is assisting China to copy the engine in the WS series.
In my opinion Pakistan should not hurry with this deal and wait until India procure its new 126 aircrafts! Any hints who is in and who is out on Indian deal?
Why should we? Is there any other alternative? For sure the Rafale and Typhoon will be available but we can't afford to buy any of these designs in great numbers.
Regardless of where India buys the 126 MRC, we need atleast 50 J-10/FC-20's by 2015 to maintain current status quo.
