    The twin launcher was shown before on J10 versions and is a fix to the lack of enough hardpoints for fuel tanks and missiles. But it comes with the downside of increased drag compared to fighters, that have 4 dedicated hardpoints for those missiles. So in missions where BVR advantages are the key, that might help, but when you expect close encounters too, it turns into a problem.

    Isn’t Pakistan a “equal” contributor? Why no pakistani flag?

    All monsters will be slayed by Indian Knight Su30 MKI. Rafale and S400 will finish the rest.

    its a dual rack ejector, whats more interesting is that the hardpoint is strong enough to hold 2x100kg+ missiles.
    end of the day its the typical do it for less, and it works.

    id imagine this would be the next addition

    more like the opposite as the removal of one less hardpoint means more air getting under the wing meaning more energy/lift. as for drag, it would be the same if it had two single ejectors. quiet pointless of you to mention it really

    Your denial is amusing but I can understand your frustration as your TEJAS is no where and we are about to produce 100th JF-17

    We don't lack option -- Budget OR Supplier

    But for you ???? China with Loan.

    Another thing -- JF-17 would be your Backbone of PAF, but LCA Tejas MK-1A would be for Point Air defence / CAS
