    RAWALPINDI: Egypt is interested in purchase of JF-17 Thunder aircraft, Egyptian Ambassador to Pakistan Sherif Shaheen told Federal Minister for Defence Production Rana Tanveer Hussain during a meeting here on Friday.

    The minister informed the ambassador that Pakistan was at present selling its traditional weapons to US, UK, Germany and some Far Eastern countries.

    He offered the sale of JF-17 Thunder and Super Mashak to Egypt and said Iraq had already signed an agreement with Pakistan for the purchase of 20 Super Mashak while a deal with Turkey for the sale of 52 Super Mashak had almost been finalised.

    Rana Tanveer emphasised the need for joint venture in defence production between the two countries.

    Ambassador Shaheen said Egypt was looking for collaboration with Pak*istan in the defence industry.

    A defence delegation from Egypt would visit defence production facilities in Pakistan to look into the possibility of buying defence-related products, he added.

    The minister invited the distinguished guest to visit defence production establishments of Pakistan.

    Hi,

    The JF 17 BLK3 would be a very good addition for egyptian forces---. They realluy need to be looking for a 100 + odd aircraft---. The upcoming PL15 and the High off bore sight PL12 missiles the Hatf V111 and CM400AKG would be a massive force multiplier for the air force for the low tier aircraft.

    With the rafales covering the top tier----and refurbished M2K's in the mid range----the JF 17 could cover the utility of higher numbers with a deadly combination of weapon systems.

    Now that might make the egyptians thinks of selling their F16---which basically are useless against the israelis---.

    So---let us see how things go in the near future.

    Hi,

    At that time---the deal was already done---and then came the revolution----so as there is stability now---they are back on track.

    I think that egypt should be looking for similar numbers of JF17's as the Paf wants in its fleet.

    A 50-----100 BLK 3 aircraft each for PAF and EAF---with aesa---AAR and all the goodies.

    Once the first couple of nations get their deliveries---the orders will start to pour in.
