外文标题：China to provide 110 fighter jets to Pakistan
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan will acquire 110 latest JF-17 Thunder fighter jets from China as the two countries forge closer economic and defence cooperation following President Xi Jinping's visit to Islamabad earlier this week, a media report said on Saturday.
Radio Pakistan reported that China will deliver the first batch of 50 jets over a period of three years. The head of Chinese aircraft industry told a Chinese daily that under the contract signed between the two countries, Pakistan will receive a total of 110 JF-17 Thunder fighter aircraft from China.
It is not clear when the delivery of the remaining 60 jets will be completed.
The JF-17 Thunder is also built in Pakistan as China has already transferred its technology. But Pakistan needs more of these jets at faster pace due to its fight against Taliban militants.

These terrorists have missiles ...they will shoot down these china made junk
Good move by Pakistan to counter India's procurement of 36 Rafale Jets from France. Though officially J-17 would be utilised to tackle Taliban, which anybody would doubt, the jets are surely meant for enhancing capabilities of Pak Air Force. India should try hard now to get the technology transfer from Rafale asap and counter the move of Pak.

The arms race has again started and China will not only be making money but will also be watching the fun.

There is nothing for China or Pakistan to be proud of in this deal! The already wealthy China becomes a bit more richer by this sale.

Guess who gives the money to Pakistan to pay for all this ? Uncle Sam ! US and China are in race to keep Pakistan on their side, to force India to lick their boots ! Jai Hind !
