JF-17 Block III could interest Ukrainian air force

According to DefenseWorld.net website , the Ukraine could be interested by the JF-17 Block III, the last variant of the light fighter developed jointly by Pakistan and China. Such a sale could serve as a showcase for the JF-17 BkIII, but there is still no guarantee that the Ukrainian air force will be able to make this purchase, as cheap as this light fighter can be.

On March 6, a delegation from the Ukrainian air force went to the Pakistan Aeronautical Complex in Kamra, where the JF-17 Block III production line is located. Much more than a routine visit, this event was apparently intended to seriously discuss the possibility of a sale of JF-17 to Ukraine. Kiev would be interested in particular by the Block III variant of the aircraft , which recently made its first flight.

Although very light, the JF-17 remains a powerful hunter with sensors and balanced weaponry.
