Dont believe anything you read, and half of what you see, here !

If a picture doesnt have the blog address as a watermark, it means it was not edited by me. Also we intentionally photoshoped these picture in a low quality photo manipulation, because we dont want anyone to repost this as the truth.

Most of the article are not ours either. We edited it to be match our posts or simply for seo.

Use your common sense to differentiate the truth from hoax.. we sometimes mix it all in.

Twin Seat Jf-18 with CFT

[BBN: Defence Reporter]  An upgraded variant of JF-17. Existence is not confirmed by official Chinese or Pakistani sources but the following pics ,believed to be authentic, of a new JF-17 variant, reported to be designated JF-18 has appeared. It shows the prototype of a Twin Seat JF-17 modified with Conformal Fuel Tanks (CFT), an infra-red search and track (IRST) sensor, a redesigned canopy, a new under-chin hardpoint and an In Flight Refueling (IFR) probe.

The JF-18 is a modified variant of the JF-17 multirole fighter aircraft, with modifications in airframe and avionics. Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC) began to develop a follow-on variant of its JF-17 fighter around 2008/2009. A prototype reportedly made its maiden flight in April 2009, this year. Once commissioned, the JF-18 is likely going to become the standard for later JF-17 productions.

Though remarkably similar to its predecessor JF-17, JF-18 is essentially an entirely new air craft with redesigned air frame and completely new generation of avionics.

Our constant source of inside information Officer X told us that conformal fuel tanks (CFT) to the JF-18 to increase its fuel load, permitting longer range, endurance, and flexibility in mission store loading, without compromising the JF-18’s flight envelope. These conformal fuel tanks are attached to the aircraft on the upper fuselage, from the forward strake area to aft of the wing’s trailing edge.

JF-18 is a remarkable addition in the joint fighter family and will add more muscle to PAF .



  2. Dear Anonymous . thanx for ur comment . As a matter of fact, all reports of jf18 or jf19 or stealthy jf17 etc can be classified as mere wishful thinking. There is no reality in such news. what is post here, is my idea of how i wud like the PAF to be. Just view it like that . thanx
