Pakistan looking for buyers for JF-17 Thunder Fighter Jets

By Iftikhar A. Khan

Pakistan is looking for buyers for the JF-17 Thunder multi-role fighter jets it has co-produced with China. An official told Dawn on Saturday that funds generated through the sale of the combat aircraft would be used in efforts to modernise Pakistan Air Force which was already emerging as a potent outfit with the recent induction of force multipliers. He said that besides Turkey, some countries of the Middle East and Africa were taking keen interest in acquisition of the aircraft. He said that two JF-17 Thunder aircraft of the PAF, manufactured at the Pakistan Aeronautical Complex, Kamra, had flown to the United Kingdom to participate in the forthcoming Farnborough Air Show 2010, scheduled to be held between July 19 and 25.


An excellent effort by an Asian Country to have produced a fighter aircraft.Now Pakistan, should market this Attack Aircraft to many countries in Africa, Middle East and Asia, they should provide a demonstration unit to be in display with their Pakistani pilots who are famous for their fighter roles, which was wittnessed by their recent activity of the entire strongholds of the LTTE in Srilanka with "pin-point" aerial bombing.May be SRILANKA would be ideal for the first leg of demonstration and it to be sold to the SRILANKA AIR FORCE.
