Upgrading fighter aircraft used against Indian Air Force, China, Pakistan: Report

China and Pakistan have begun to develop a joint development of the JF-17 fighter aircraft, which is the current version of the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) used to fight against Indian fighters near the Line of Control (LoC) last month already

"The development and production of JF-17 Block 3 is underway," said Yang Wei, a Chinese lawyer and chief designer of a fighter jet engine that is jointly developed between China-Pakistan by state media.

The F-16 is part of two dozen fighters that the PAF scrambled during the fight with the IAF.

The current version is said to be a competitor of the Tejas aircraft developed in India.

Yang said his goal is to increase "The ability to make war and information weapons" of the jet or the use of modern communication technology in modern warfare

"All relevant work is underway," Yang was quoted as claiming to be a world-class national tabloid at a press conference held during the ongoing Chinese parliament meeting.

The JF-17 or FC-1 is a single multi-jet fighter aircraft developed jointly by China and Pakistan for export according to the website of the Chinese aviation industry company.

Yang added that the development and production of sets for the JF-17 Block 3 aircraft were carried out simultaneously.

"The third block will see the ability to make war and upgrade weapons of JF-17," Yang said. Pakistan, the main user of JF-17, can share information between fighter planes and other platforms by taking advantage of all combat systems to protect strong opponents such as India, military analyst Wei Dongxu said. Wei explained that the upgraded version will apply to the IAF.

"JF-17 Block 3 is expected to be equipped with an electronic radar radar scanned, which can gather additional information in the battle, allowing the fighter jet to run from a distance and attack multiple targets at the same time. The display that is equipped with a helmet and vision system also allows the pilot to aim at what he sees, "Wei said.

When the new upgrade is ready, they can be installed on the plane quickly, ensuring that the fast delivery time Wei added.

According to the tabloid, JF-17 is often described by manufacturers and military observers as advanced fighters. But is a cost-effective fighter

"Currently competing with India's Tejas and South Korea's FA-50 in plans to buy a new fighter jet in Malaysia. JF-17 is the most competitive option," Wei said. It is reported that Myanmar and Nigeria buy Chinese-Pakistan fighters.
