    if there will be a block 3 in three years with all those improvements as claimed,then a better engine will be required.

    If RD 93 & WS can not be considered then suggest which 1 will be used & of course price & availability to pak.

    My sources on and off the net suggest that the WS-13 has been dropped from the JF-17 project for the foreseeable future.

    The JFT will rely on Russia-sourced engines for the entirety of Block-2 production.

    JF-17 Thunder: Govt to buy jet engines directly from Russia
    Published February 15, 2015
    SOURCE: The Express Tribune

    Pakistan will directly import engines from Russia to manufacture its JF-17 Thunder fighter jets. The engines were earlier imported via China.

    According to sources in ministry of defence production, China has recently issued no objection certificate (NOC) to Pakistan, which was earlier producing the fighter jet as a joint venture with China.

    “The Chinese NOC now allows Pakistan to import fighter jet engines from Russia directly,” a source said. “This will not only reduce the cost of production of the fighter jet but will also lead to enhanced defence cooperation between Russia and Pakistan.”

    Islamabad and Moscow had recently agreed to boost cooperation in several spheres including that of defence during the recent Russian defence minister’s visit to Pakistan. “This is a significant move since Pakistan had never struck any direct defence deal with Russia,” the sources said.

    “Russia was clearly tilted towards India and the new Russian policy towards Pakistan is seen as a coup pulled by the country’s foreign policy.

    Pakistan and China develop two-seat Xiaolong fighter

    To introduce the FC-1 Xiaolong multirole fighter, also known as the JF-17 Thunder, to the overseas market, China and Pakistan are going to display a two-seater version of the aircraft during the Paris Air Show held from June 15-21 this year, reports the Moscow-based Military Parade.

    Known as the FC-1B or JF-17B, this two-seater fighter is likely to be equipped with the French-built M88-2 engine. It is currently equipped with the Rafale twin-engine fighter designed by Dassault for the French Air Force.

    With this new engine, the range of the Xiaolong can be extended from 800 kilometers to 1,000 kilometers, according to the report. A refueling probe will be installed on the FC-1B or JF-17B as well for aerial refueling according to an unofficial source.

    Other defense analysts have queried whether the M88-2 can be fitted to a two-seater Xiaolong.​

    Maybe they can buy them from India, what with HAL starting a joint venture with Safran to build M88 engines.
