    JF-17 BLOCK III hasn't arrived yet by the time JF-17 BLOCK III will come I am pretty sure J-10 D will arrive by than. JF-17 BLOCK III will arrive by the end of 2018

    That's the question, i know J10D will be better. J-10C has AESA like block-III so better comparison. Will china export FC-20?or only FC-1 for export?

    China is offering countries J-10 and JF-17 is also being offered it depends on the country. Morocco is showing lot of interest in JF-17 and if come up with JF-17 BLOCK III soon Egypt may also go for it.

    In my opinion only JF-17 is for export and cheaper too.

    They are pretty distinct for a side shot. I can see the underbelly for the air intake but I will take your word for now.

    It's a JF17, the J10 has the refuelling probe further to the front of the cockpit:

    Both are meant to be exported, but the is aimed on low end customers, that can't afford better, or that China doesn't want to have J10. As far as I remember J10 was offered to Myanmar and Iran.

    Also, J10 is a more capable medium class fighter, JF17 often gets smaller or less capable systems from the J10 and I think China will keep the difference in performance with the next upgrades as well.

    The new picture has come from China JF-17 has gone through major up gradation now it can carry 4 BVR due to addition of dual racks. Sources also suggest soon JF-17 will also get AESA Radar

    Here comes you and JF-17 was designed for Pakistani needs not China. Secondly not China but Morocco and Egypt and Qatar and even Saudi Arabia and several other countries are showing interest and looking to buy this beast
