The Pakistani government’s Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) has approved a USD184.3 million sovereign guarantee covering the production of three PAC/CAC JF-17 Thunder fighters for Nigeria under a recently signed contract, the Pakistan Express Tribune reported on 24 October.


This is the first confirmation from Pakistan that Abuja has signed a contract for the JF-17, although payments totalling NGN19.7 billion (USD54 billion) were put aside for the aircraft in Nigeria’s 2016 and 2018 budgets. so far the amount that been contract for is 3

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.

F-16 has higher life cycle costs, as compare to jF-17.
Only air force which operate both jF-17 and F-16 is PAF, so we have no choice for our reference.
Pakistan have participated in war exercises with Jordan & Saudi Arabia, so they might have second opinion.
Technical parameters are all known to the public, for the both platforms.

from what I heard Nigeria inked for construction of 3 aircraft and they are suppose to be delivered this year I think sometime.
Was it actually inked back in 2016? Two years already passed. Not sure if the production line is busy.

I'm not sure to be honest, I have not been keeping track on the Nigerian JF-17 contract. I'd have to ask, look for information or might want to ask one of our Pakistani members on this forum

Last news was that Pakistan govt. provided sovereign guarantee to Nigeria, for the on time production & delivery of first batch of jF-17.
Based on this report, Nigerian jF-17 are not delivered yet. Should be some time in current year.

When and where did Jordan and Pakistan participate in joint exercises?

Back in 2016. No joint exercise has taken place since then except the Eager Lion military drill but it included many other participants as well.

They have quite a history, I remember their ex-President Gen Zia used to wear a Jordanian medal very proudly, one he won when he was deputed there.
