Pakistan about to receive 12 JF-17B fighter jets

Pakistan Air Force (PAF) is all set to receive the first 12 of 26 dual-seat JF-17B Thunder aircraft in the near future, according to the revelation made by Air Chief Marshall, Mujahid Anwar Khan. The delivery of remaining jets will be completed in 2021. Out of the 12, 4 multirole fighters have been built at the Chengdu Aircraft Industry Corporation (CAC) whereas the remaining 8 at Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC) in Kamra.

The Chief of Air Staff believes that the induction of JF-17B will help PAF streamline the training process for its pilots. With its induction, PAF pilots will graduate to the Thunder at a much younger age, he told.
