No idea. But if the rumour could come out, it definitely isn't 2 or 4. It must be more for platform familiarization.

Ah, why put words in the mouth when the maestro is right here! @Khafee barkhurdar kuch to rahem karen bhai. Thora aur hum miskeeno ko bata dein.
On the J10 version for PAF, there is a little bit of amguity, so I am keeping quite, until they land.

NOTE: Ambiguity in the sense what will their actual capabilities be, NOT that whether they are coming or not.

You are right, but ususally they do come in batches of 2, 4, or 6, right?

Sir many senior members are mentioning j10 A/B. My question is why to get A/B when there is j10c present?

As long as PAF didn't say it, you have nothing to worry about.

I'm not saying whether it is A or B or C or P that is coming in.

Having said that, IF it is A or B, it could mean two things:

1) A stop gap measure for inevitable war loses

2) A replacement for M3 / M5's

J15 is also PAF , but there role will dedicated to PN and if required can be used elsewhere
Right now PN has a Mirage Sqdn under its command manned by PAF. With J15's initially, this is will not be the case. Assets will be split between PAF & PN.

Sir @Khafee our best source are you, but with current situation and past history of J7 and rumors.

It might be seen combination of Used and New.
Apparently used after upgradations will given initially and some advance variant at you shared, can be inducted later on.

Correct be if i am wrong

Important thing is that if J10x arrive intially in used form, then later its advanced variant will be part of PAf future inductions

As @Khafee you said it will replace Mirages role in long run due to there payload, speed advanced avionics.

Additionally PAF can have simolar engine for J15 and J10 in future, even present as we dont know.

Most important thing it give PAF alternative of F16 too even if new and used F16 arrived

Last advantage PAC and CAC have all the time they want to complete integration of thander blk3 and testing
