PAKISTAN All Set To Receive 36 J-10C Semi-Stealth 4.5+ Generation Multirole Fighter Jets From Iron Brother CHINA By The End Of 2021:
PAKISTAN is all set to receive 36 J-10 Semi-Stealth 4.5++ Generation Multirole Fighter Jets from its Iron Brother Country CHINA by the year of 2021.
The news is confirmed by the official Twitter Handler of House for Strategic & International Affairs (HSIA) as “PAKISTAN is set to receive 36 J-10C semi-stealth, 4.5 gen advanced fighter Jets from China by the end of 2021.”
J-10C is the most probable fighter jet that can be compared with the agility, mobility and speed of US F-16 Fighter Jet. This is the reason that PAKISTAN AIR FORCE is heavily relied on CHINESE J-10C 4.5++ Generation Semi-Stealth Fighter Jet to replace its ageing fleet of F-16 Fighter Jet.
According to the reports, Top level Government Officials from Islamabad visits CHINA multiple times during the last couple of years over the procurements of lethal and revolutionary CHINESE PL-10 Missile, PL-15 Missiles and J-10C Fighter Jet.
Although, the news is not confirmed either by the Defense Ministries of PAKISTAN and CHINA.
It is pertinent to mention that during the Shaheen-IX Joint Air Exercise, both Iron Brother Countries PAKISTAN and CHINA simulated real combat conditions in mock battle against indian rafale and SU-30 Jets with CHINESE J-10C and J-11B Multirole Heavyweight fighter jet.
On the occasion, the then CHIEF OF AIR STAFF (CAS) Air Chief Marshal Mujahid Anwar Khan also flew the CHINESE J-10C Fighter Jet to demonstrate the capability of CHINA’s star multi-role strike and intercept fighter jet.

“Large scale confrontation, including large scale aerial battles and use of forces in mass and close-quarters aerial support,” a press release said.
During the Shaheen-IX Air Exercise, both Iron brother Countries, PAKISTAN and CHINA, conducts 200 sorties to strengthen and enhance its interoperability and combat capabilities.
PAF and Ageing Fleet of F-16 Fighter Jet:
It is pertinent to mention that reportedly PAKISTAN was the third country in the world that has induct the US-made F-16 Fighter Jet in its combat fleet. Over the time, PAKISTAN AIR FORCE has made significant upgrades in Fighter jet, including the integrating the modern AIM-120C air to air missiles.
The F-16 fighter jet was one of the most capable fighter jet that PAKISTAN AIR FORCE has inducted into its fleet.
PAKISTAN Iron Brother CHINA has inducted J-10C in its fleet back in 2018 and it possesses a lot of similarities with the US F-16 fighter jet.
Why J-10C Semi-Stealth 4.5++ Generation Is Ideal Choice For PAKISTAN AIR FORCE?
The J-10C Multirole 4.5++ Generation Fighter Jet is in fact a much more capable and potent modern fighter Jet than the US F-16.
J-10C features is packed with more and equal specs as compared to F-16 fighter jet, including lower radar cross section, higher speed, greater maneuverability. Moreover, J-10C also sues the revolutionary thrust vectoring engines that help to increase the maneuverability, one feature that F-22 exhibits.
The J-10C is covered with stealth coatings that reduces the visibility of aircraft in even modern radars. The J-10C uses the revolutionary AESA radar that is integrated with some of the world’s much potent missiles, including PL-15, PL-10.
Furthermore, the J-10C Fighter Jet is also integrated with YJ-91 Cruise Missiles that would provide a formidable air to ground strike capability to the Falcons of PAKISTAN AIR FORCE than any other Fighter Jet in its arsenal.
Both of these missiles have also been integrated to the Block-III variant of PAKISTAN’s Pride JF-17 Thunder Multirole Fighter Aircraft.
The J-10 Semi-Stealth 4.5++ Generational Fighter Jet also features a lower operational cost and lower maintenance than the ageing F-16 fighter Jet.
PAKISTAN AIR FORCE is aggressively collaborating with its Iron Brother CHINA to modernize its indigenous JF-17 Thunder Fighter Jet with the latest technologies, radars, suites and armaments.
Reportedly, the newest Block-III of JF-17 Thunder also integrates the same armaments and missiles, such as PL-15 and PL-10 missiles, that have already been integrated with J-10C Semi-Stealth fighter jet. So, it means that PAKISTAN AIR FORCE didn’t need to do extra effort for maintaining different type of fighter jet in its arsenal.
Scale Model of J10C Fighter Jet With PAKISTAN Flag and F-16 Color Scheme:
Last year, a scale model of J-10C 4.5++ generation Semi-Stealth aircraft went viral on social media that shows J-10C with Sacred PAKISTANI Flag that is painted with the same color scheme that F-16 Jet PAF has got its arsenal.
This scale model confirmed the news that PAKISTAN AIR FORCE (PAF) has reportedly decided to replace its ageing fleet of F-167 with the CHINESE J-10C Multirole Semi-Stealth 4.5++ Generation Fighter Aircraft.
