    It looks like an AWAC project more than the AESA project.

    India can afford it...pak will find it difficult to create the infra for too many diverse aircraft

    F-16 - F-7P/PG - A-5 -JF-17 - Mirage III - Mirage IV --- we are operating 6 different platforms right now & we can do it in the future since J-10B will come with full TOPT.

    I thought the JF-17 was meant to replace the A-5, F-7, and Mirage III/IV? Old airframes, limited scope for upgrade etc., yeah?

    Also, is the J-10B that the PAF is acquiring, or the F-10A?

    Mirages , F-7s , A-5s would be replaced by JF-17 in 4 years -- there is a possibility that PAF might upgrade Mirage ROSE & F-7PG (which are quite new) to BVR capability and keep them as training aircraft and as another line of defense.

    J-10B sometimes is referred to as F-10 but its the same aircraft.

    Future PAF fleet will consist on.

    F/16- A/B/C/D Block52+/MLU-MIII.

    JF-17 - Block I/II/III

    J-10B -

    5th gen ??? beyond 2015.

    Ah. Right, got it.
    Apparently, FC-20 is the PAF designation of J-10B, while F-10A is the export designation of J-10A.

    i don't think so pakistan can buy 150 j-10 before 2020 becasue the cost of 150 j-10 will be more than $4.5 billion however 36 j-10 they can buy but only after 2015 but still it required $1- 1.5 billion.

    We can if you remember F-16 block50/52 + F-16 upgrade deal amounted to 4-5Billion$.
    PAF already purchased expensive assets like Tankers and AWACS so no problem for funds in future.
