Nigeria is planning -25~40 JF-17s all total, Nigeria has a very bad habit of wanting to acquire high end weapons without purchasing, it happened to many countries. Pakistan is making sure they get some cash before the final construction or delivery begins to them.

$60 million for "Made in Pakistan" JF-17 fighter jets ?? Just buy fighter jets from USA or Russia or Europe that are unmatched in the world.

Why underestimating the JF-17? Its very sophisticated fighter jet and come with deadly armament. I rate in par with the f-16.
