Nigeria to become first JF-17 export operator
Jeremy Binnie, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
07 January 2016

Nigeria's plans to acquire three CAC/PAC JF-17 Thunder multirole fighters in 2016, Nigeria's Punch newspaper reported on 6 January.

Citing a leaked copy of the budget, Punch reported that NGN5 billion (USD25 million) has been allocated for the acquisition of the three JF-17s, NGN2.06 billion for 10 PAC Super Mushshak basic trainers, and NGN11.6 billion for two Mi-35M helicopters.

Jointly developed by the Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC) and Chengdu Aircraft Corporation (CAC), the JF-17 is currently only in service with Pakistan. IHS Jane's reported in December 2014 that Nigeria was finalising a JF-17 order, but a deal was not subsequently confirmed.

I looks like a combination of an F-16 and an F-5. The wings and rear look like the F-16 while the front of the plane looks much like the F-5. I can't help but like it.

This deal might also get other closer countries to buy them if it's seeing Nigeria getting them.
