Does Pakistan really has Brighter Future for JF17 Thunder

Pakistan is starting to sell a bunch of JF-17s to various countries. Myanmar is buying a handful. Sri Lanka just signed for a few. Nigeria has set aside funds for 3 JF-17s. The total number of Thunders on the procurement rolls is not high, but this is really a first for Pakistan or others selling fighters: this has been the province of the US, Europe, Russia or China up until now. I think this has some pretty big implications. Although the JF-17 is plane full of awesome sauce. Quite the contrary these are the bottom rung of fighters. However, this could leverage Pakistan into actually having an aerospace industry and set a precedent for non traditional aerospace companies/countries to market their wares. 30 years ago, this would have been the US F-16s or Russian MiGs. No longer. The average F-16 probably comes out near $61M per airframe, rough estimate. The JF-17 is roughly $28M per airframe. That means that countries that don’t have a big budget can get two JF-17s, for less than one F-16, and still have money left over for spare parts.   One report puts the Iraqi Vipers at over $100M an airframe, before adding spares and support.

Does Pakistan really has Brighter Future for JF17 Thunder 1

 You can get Russian aircraft cheaper, but not much, and have less reliable aircraft, harder to get support, and have to send the aircraft back to Russia for their heavy maintenance.
