PL-10E is slated to be part of JFT-B2 upgrade & will be PAF's first short
range missile with Infrared Imaging lIR
homing. PL-10E is 5th gen SRAAMs &
enables HOBS with HMD/S. CCMs are
wingtip mounted on JFT. It will play part in
less drag.

Millienium 7 is a fascinating youtuber---giving out information on the fighter aircraft.

Here is a unique tidbit in this video. The life of the original F16 frame was 4000 hours.

The life of the original JF17 is 4000 hours.

In another video---from certain angles the JF17 looks like the F16---5:15.

If it does---then it will act like an F16 as well. The Paf copied the F16 as much as they could without raising the ire of the americans.

Very interesting comments overall.

I think that the Paf needs to invite him over and introduce him to the JF17 BLK2--.


19:30 onwards he stated what he did not want to say openly. Maybe in the future


His last comment on the second interview right at the closing of the video says something exceptional in the favor of the JF17 to the extent that I was surprised by the message in his comments.

The hidden message rated the JF17 very very high for the usage of high end air forces and that is no small praise coming coming from on of the best commentators on fighter aircraft---.

Remarks /compliments @15:00 and 17:00 are generally under appreciated by the commentators.

So that wraps up the induction of the first 8 Bravos produced at PAC Kamra in 2019,and handed over in December 2019.
As of now PAF has 8+4 inducted Bravos. The other 4 came from China.
This year there had to be another 14 produced at PAC.
Then there are 4 to be produced in 2021.
The grand total will be 32 inducted and Operational Bravos by the end of 2021.
By early or Mid 2021 the entire PAC production capability will be dedicated for Block III.

As of now looking at various televised documentaries there's credible evidence that there are 18 Bravo air frames at PAC jigs in various stages of completion. 2P-65B till 2P-82.
So PAC is either on schedule or ahead of schedule as far as manufacturing of Bravo goes.

What is the future of JF-17 ??? PAF fleet requirement is almost 400 jets , If we look at future inductions and if all the @Khafee leaks are true ,PAF shall have almost 200 JF-17s by 2026-27 , almost 100 F-16s , almost 100 J-10s/JH-7 (combined i assume) , Which fills the requirement for PAF fleet. AZM and J-31/35 will likely replace older F-16s models after 2026-28 so whats the future of JF-17 ??
