“The dual-seat JF-17 aircraft are fully mission capable for the entire spectrum of combat operations and will boost PAF’s operational readiness besides fulfilling the training needs of PAF,” DGPR said.
Speaking on the Jet Induction Ceremony, CHINESE Ambassador to PAKISTAN, H.E, Mr. Nong Rong congratulated PAKISTAN to induct the 14 JF-17 Bravo Dual Seat Fighter Jet in its Air Defense Fleet.
Speaking on the occasion, CHIEF OF AIR STAFF (CAS) Air Chief Marshal Mujahid Anwar Khan thanked the PAKISTAN’s Iron Brother CHINA for helping PAKISTAN in achieving the milestone of safeguarding the Sacred Frontiers of PAKISTAN.
The JF-17B Fighter Jet, also known as JF-17 Bravo, is basically a multipurpose dual-seat ground attack and reconnaissance aircraft that can also be used as the Lead-In Fighter Trainer (LIFT) and JF-17 conversion trainer for training purposes.
“Will further enhance the advanced combat training of the PAF fighter pilots on this indigenous war-fighting machine,” PAF said.
It is pertinent to mention that PAKISTAN AIR FORCE has rolled out the first batch of Eight JF-17B Dual-Seat Aircraft back in December 27, 2019.
PAKISTAN Aeronautical Complex, despite its meagre defense budget, has indigenously constructed more than 100 JF-17 Block I and JF-17 Block II Aircraft and delivered to the PAKISTAN AIR FOCE since November 2009.
The recent induction of 14 Dual Seat JF-17 Bravo Thunder jet will further help to strengthen the Air Defense and Offensive capability of PAKISTAN AIR FORCE (PAF) against india, who is the arch rival of both Iron Brothers PAKISTAN and CHINA.
