My guess would be:

Most Likely - A J-10C with some minor customizations (like IFF, ejection seats) but mostly similar to the PLAAF J-10C. Think of it like J-7G and F-7PG but no radar switch and no sidewinder switch.

My hope (but unlikely to happen) is a semi-stealthy J-10D type.
From the visual reports of Karachi night-flying we're getting, seems like the J-10 is black - so likely comes with the LO coating.q

This statement of yours defeats logic. Do feel free to let PAF planner know of your displeasure.

No bisti, with you our relationship is on another level, despite our age diff. Like there are 2 or 3 people, when they call I ask them "Abhi tak zinda ho?"

Reason for 3 different type at Masroor could very likely be that as JF-17 is standard workhorse of PAF, the J-10P and J-15P ( not sure if it will be P or something else ) are Mission Specific / specialist aircraft and not the workhorse. However, if you look at the Masroor base, they will need more HAS and or Covered shelters to keep them out of harsh Sindh + Arabians Sea weather / coastal environment.

This is why Bholari will work as an extension of Masroor, or vice versa.

i guess Masroor can be dedicated to point defense and naval ops while bohlari can serve as dedicated airops base

J-10Ps are possibly the direct counter to French Rafales. As such, I imagine Pak will get 24-36 aircraft at the least. I believe in the longer term, one squadron for each of the three commands means about 54 aircraft.
