  2. The Block 2 version of the JF 17 Thunder looks to be a sweet machine in deed. As the design evolves into a mature capable fighting and flight system. As the 2 seater comes on line; I would expect to see not just an advanced trainer. But a vastly capable weapons delivery system. I'm looking forward to seeing the aircraft close up.

  3. When are going to see JF-17 Thunder Block II in the skies of Pakistan to protect the sovereignty of Pakistan challenged on western borders often. JF-17 is the pride of Pakistan. It really has potent capabilities and advanced features.
