    Stop acting like you work for CAC. Saying the same thing with too much conviction.
    They can call it what ever they want.

    Here is a Pakistani blog http://quwa.org/2017/06/13/first-export-bound-fc-1-spotted-china/

    Funny part is that this deal is being marketed by Chinese, and Pakistani still wondering what is happening to the deal, how many work have been completed etc. Let see where this plane is being manufactured, since it still have the Russian engine, and Russians have given permission to the Chinese CAC to export it, let's see whether PAC could do that or not.

    No idea what they are saying, but those who achieved something (with all the limitations they have), should be allowed to brag about it.
    It's a success and a game changer for them, in industrial and operational terms.

    Calling it 100% Pakistani and independent is a lie not bragging.

    Well, calling foreign stuff in our developments as "indigenous content", only because we licence produce them, or arms and techs "indigenous" although they are based on foreign products (Israeli/Russian) as parts of JVs, would be as insincere don't you think? They are as proud as we are and they exaggerate as we do as well.

    At the end of the day, it doesn't matter how big the indigenous content is for them or for us, all that counts is, how the products adds to the security of the nation as well as the development of the indigenous industry and in both cases, JF17 is a big boost for Pakistan.
