Two Seat model of the Sino-Pak JF-17 Thunder / FC-1 Xiaolong fighter aircraft being readied for display at the Paris Air Show which will start tomarrow.

Two seater version will have fatter spine to accommodate the electronic equipment moved due to the additional cockpit space.

The two seater model of the JF-17 Thunder was carrying 2x PL-12/SD-10 Beyond visual range active radar-guided air-to-air missile (BVRAAM), 2x PL-5 E II Within Visual Range Air to Air Missiles (WVRAAM) for self defence purposes and two air to surface/anti-ship missiles for ground/maritime attack role.

Air to surface/anti-ship missile seems to be the Chinese C-802A Anti-ship Missile which can hit ground and martime targets from standoff distance of 180 km.
