    I was thinking the same..but F-16 is a war proven platform.

    Whats wrong with having both technologies. Gives us more diversity in operational capability.
    We are negotiating second hand F-16s with norway , they are all upgraded to Block52 standard , addition of 150 of these J-10Bs will work well.

    150? I really doubt if the PAF has ordered that much.

    36 are on order as an initial batch , rest to follow with production at PAC & CAC. We have few J-10A already in PAF service for training purposes only. But most pilots go to China for training.

    Lol..is that Fokker still in service?is it better than F-16 or J10 A/B?...the F-16 is still at service, in the U.S. itself, they have proposed the IN version for our MRCA tender too
    I agree that the war proven is not a criteria but unless there is a detailed comparison between these two fighters the edge is given to F16.. :)

    It was supposed to be sarcastic joke....
    Thats why half the F-16's are in reserve or used as target practice....
    Also the reason why IAF chief considers it obsolete......
    Na J-10 is better more room for improvement and the country which produces it is in no hurry to replace it.....

    This is a good plane.
    Especially I like the air intake of this air craft.
    Also it is single engine.
    Hence low maintenance cost.

    the J-10 has not a so low wing loading as single engine fighters always need lots of fuel and weapons that always overwhelm thrust and wing loading, the latest F-16 have more power than the J-10 but they carry more warload, if you want a light fighter just add a pair of AIM-9X and a HMS to an F-16 and you have a fighter that will beat the J-10 any time
