As seen from the top pic leaked on social media, and seen over the skies of Karachi.

2 Initially arrived, and then 4 on Thursday 30th July.

The 2 that arrived were new built, and the 4 that arrived were used airframes, upgraded to double their life.

All of them carry AESA radars and Chinese engines., and latest upgraded avionics, and nearly a Generation ahead of those in service with PLAAF.

With these 6, PAF's new procurements stand as follows:

J15 - 10
J10P - 8 (J10P is a further upgrade of J10C)
JH7 - 6

Initially a full Sqdn is planned for the JH-7's, but later more could be added.

IA An induction ceremony, for all 3 platforms, could be as soon as Wednesday TENTATIVELY!

Note:

1) 2nd pic is for illustrative purposes only
2) Patch is Fan Art
3) I wouldn't be surprised, if IAF hearing the news of 3 new PAF inductions, crashes 3 Rafales. (:-)

EDIT: 02 Aug 2020
IA Induction Ceremony is planned for Wed, if no rains, otherwise postponed by a week at least.

Why we even need them?
The range of this aircraft without refueling is almost 3700 km..... meaning it can strike any part of Indian costal area while flying in from the Arabian Sea..... imagine the terror when all their naval bases are now exposed and their assets deployed deep in the ocean are no longer out of our reach.....

Where are they going to park their carriers now ?

Sir @Mastankhan

Once again on this Auspicious occasion, will love to hear from you how this Platform will/should be used against IN & Ground Targets as well of Indian Coast. It will be a fresh reminder to us & a lesson for newbies that why this platform was inducted.

Bro don't underestimate JH7... especially an upgraded one with AESA. It's spey engines(Chinese equivalent) have a low flying capability...so it can diminish enemy's radar range advantage. By the time it's detected due to its low flight...it can close range to be within a couple hundred km range of the target...and with standoff weapons like cruise missiles...
...it can fire and turn around to speed outta there.
