    We know china believes in making cheap goods whether it is useful or not is immaterial.

    Anyway congratulation to china and pakistan. This plane emerged from the concept of trainer and now it will be used as a trainer. This plane has a better utility as a trainer and not as a fighter. It is a right choice, I would say.

    Congratulations to India, and finally developed the invincible LCA, I would like to ask how much LCA delivered to the India air force?

    The LCA effort has given us an acceptable fighter in decent numbers.
    It has also established an entire ecosystem/industrial base for jet production.
    It is that very important first step before we cover large distance.

    Thats what LCA has delivered to India in simple(ton) english.

    It looks like a filthy over eating fat PIG.

    In any air combat the Fighter that is more agile, Faster & lighter wins. And this Fat PIG definitely is not agile, fast or light wrt thrust.

    Plus even the thought that it is powered by RD33 Russian engine will bring down confidence of any pilot during combat.

    The looks indeed seems kind of strange, but it might use a purpose.

    It is similar in performance to FC-1 but uses a lot of composites, has a modern FBW, superior Western and Israeli electronics, HMD+HOBS missiles. That's about it.

    It was design with wing root expansion. This design gives a lots of lift still it takes double time after break release to take of compared to tejas . it ran away from Bahrain air show to avoid comparison. The day when Tejas flew in Bahrain, Pakistanis were totally rattled on PDF. That idiot Mastan khan wrote that if US do not give Pakistan F 16, Pakistan must make more bombs.

    The funny part, a member on PDF asked what is the level of works done by Pakistan on the JF17B, his reason was if Pakistan is in a JV , why ain't their engineers or tech working with chinese, thus A True JV and first flight can be celebrated NOT what we see where all the work was done by the chinese including the testing and all the PAF officers went for a Photo Op!

    Sadly he was shot down and given the standard reply of works down of the single seat frame
