Can the IR MAWS onboard the JF-17 Block 3 provide Fire Control?
@Mastankhan @Khafee
Since it is IR and UV, theoretically it can be used, but what are the chances it can be actually?

IR/UV sensors can be used, but the questions is, are the ones mounted on JF-17 block 3 high res? If they are, are they being used like this?
Where does this wiki article mention use of MAWS as fire control?

location of MAWS sensors at JF17 block 3 is at top of vertical stabilizer and on sides above the LERX, this is not the right position for a fire control sensor, seems only good for counter measures.
Rest i don't know, but keep exploring, you never know.

Two of them are under the intakes too, I believe.

Its just a theory, more chances of it being wrong than right.

theory is not quite fitting, considering the fire control systems are much more than sensors and they ought to have look down or forward sight, thus far guns are aimed in forward direction, while missiles are homed using data link or internal IR sensors.

Interesting to read about blk IV, inching towards becoming a technologically superior than any other PAF platform--- eye tracking /wearable cockpit will revolutionize the machine, while MUMT can prove to be a force multiplier.

Great to hear about SOW integration with JF-17. But it is not clear if this integration would also be with Block 1 and 2. Is the structural improvement responsible for this?

Duel weapon on common pylon has been around from some time, but from picture below it appears that they have developed a modular assembly of ejectors, those can be mounted at single pylon at least on any jF-17, any block.

Isn't this ejector dual rack used for unguided bombs?
We have yet to see pics of a dual rack used for SD-10s. We have to yet to even get a confirmation of its existence by PAF or exPAF personnel.
