    Jamestown Foundation China Brief published an article entitled "J-10: Pakistan defense cooperation in the new cornerstone" of the article. The article said that China and Pakistan has produced in the field of high-tech defense established a strong partnership. The formation of this relationship from the two deep military and strategic cooperation, but it also reflects the rapid development of China's defense production capabilities, as well as budding Pakistan defense relationship. This bilateral relationship is the recent performance of the Chinese Government has agreed to sell Pakistan 36 J-10B fighter jet. As we all know, J-10 is China's most advanced arsenal of weapons systems in the world, and Pakistan will become the first buyer of this aircraft. This 36 fighter jets to be delivered, the Pakistan Air Force will set up two fighter squadrons, which further enhance their combat effectiveness. It is believed that the J-10 contracts worth $ 1.4 billion, China's annual $ 2 billion in weapons sales accounted for 70%. In addition, China will also transfer to Pakistan J-10 fighter production technology.

    J-10 sales to become the epitome of the strategic alliance

    The article said that this aircraft reflects the Sino-Brazilian strategic alliance deal of depth. In fact, some reports indicate that Pakistan actually want to buy 150 J-10 fighter jets, the total value of $ 6.0 billion. However, the Pakistani Government says these reports are too exaggerated. Although Pakistan has not yet announced the deal, but Pakistani Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani was confirmed on November 23, "Pakistan is on the procurement of J-10 fighters to consult the matter with China." In 2006, the U.S. F-16 fighter purchase plan failed, Pakistan turned to China seeking to buy J-10 fighters. In the same year, former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf in his visit to China, the Chinese government on the matter and has consulted, and that laid the foundation for the success of the transaction.

    J-10 is the third generation of Chinese-made fighter jets, by the Chengdu Aircraft Industrial Group built. However, some observers think that J-10 is China's fourth-generation fighters. "China Briefing" has previously published an article saying: "J-10 and Israel 'lion' fighter similar to the performance of the global scope is equipped with some of the U.S. Air Force F-16C par." J-10 fighters research and development work began in the mid-1980s, four years ago finally fielded the PLA Air Force. Aviation experts will be listed in which fighters F-16, the Swedish "Gripen" fighter jets and other small under. In addition, the "Indians" reported that China is developing its fourth-generation jet fighters. The paper currently has the fourth-generation fighters countries only the United States - F-22. However, aviation experts believe that the fifth-generation F-22 jet fighter. Proud of the PLA Air Force Deputy Commander Lieutenant He said: "The next eight years or 10 years, China will have their own fourth-generation fighters." He added, China's fourth-generation fighter's performance will "catch up or exceed the existing similar jet fighters. "

    The article said that China is on the Pakistani fighter pilot training to enable them to control the fourth-generation fighters. To achieve this purpose, January 16, China delivered to Pakistan eight K-8P jet trainer. According to an official statement said, K-8P trainer enhance the Pakistan Air Force pilot training base, and to "challenge them to a more smooth transition of the fourth-generation fighter aircraft to provide an effective platform." K-8P is a Sino-Pakistani joint research and development of advanced jet trainer. The aircraft has been fitted out in the Pakistan Air Force Academy. At that time, the Chinese delegation and senior officials of the Pakistan Air Force trainer attended the handover ceremony.

    China to sell J-10 fighters in Pakistan's move reflected its strategic alliance between Pakistan and the depth. Pakistan, China will be the first to receive this country's most advanced fighter, which indicates that China's strategic partnership between China and Pakistan convinced. However, defense analysts is that these arms sales to the world to convey an important message that China's "defense capabilities are increasing rapidly." Sino-Pakistani military relationship has been continued for more than 43 years, the relationship began in 1966, when China provided to Pakistan F-6 fighters, have since succeeded in providing to Pakistan, such as FT5, A5, F-7P, F- 7PG and K-8 and other aircraft.

    I guess the article just used Sino-Brazilian out of context. It goes on and on about the special relationship between China and Pakistan and later compares it to other 4th gen fighters, etc. It only says China will transfer to Pakistan fighter production technology to manufacture the aircraft.

    I reckon, only after the we have F-20 inducted in good numbers, then we may get ToT or ToPT.
    FC-20s made in Pakistan makes it seem more likely that the number may reach 150.
