China Delivers First Overhauled Multi-role JF-17 Fighter Jet to Pakistan
China Delivers First Overhauled Multi-role JF-17 Fighter Jet to Pakistan

Beijing: China has delivered the first overhauled multi-role JF-17 fighter jet to Pakistan, a development seen as major boost to air defence of Pakistan.

The first overhauled fighter jet was handed over to Pakistan as part of a project carried out by the two nations over a decade ago, media reports stated.

China and Pakistan had launched joint development and manufacture of the single-engine light JF-17 jets over a decade ago.

 Changsha 5712 Aircraft Industry Co Ltd under the state-owned Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC) reassembled the jets and delivered to Pakistan, reports added.

Pakistan sent dozens of trainees to China, who had close communication and built deep friendships with Chinese engineers during the overhaul process.

As per defence sources, JF-17 has become a mainstay of the PAF in recent years after US restricted sales of F-16 war planes after the 1990 arms embargo imposed on Pakistan under the Pressler amendment.

Though China has made significant strides in avionics and developed new range of war planes including stealth fighters, it is yet to develop engines for its planes, including JF-17 and has to rely on Russian supplies mostly.
