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.

Jaffu, Are u for real o.O

A pic of Jf-17 loaded with three 1100 litre fuel tanks and A2G ordnance has recently surfaced the internet. Is this pic for real, let's analyze.

The shape of these fuel tanks is similar to those used for J-10while the center-line fuel tank in J-10 is smaller than the two on wings. But in this pic all three fuel tanks are of the same size. That raises a big question mark . Why would J-10 a big and more powerful plane carry 2 1100 lt and one small fuel tank while Jaffu would carry 3 1100 lt fuel tanks ?

But when i tried to check if the light source for the plane and the fuel tanks is the same, that is by increasing and decreasing the brightness value and contrast , the fuel tanks seemed consistent with the plane. Though it is a very crude way to check the credibility of a photo, but it does give an idea, if the light sources of two objects in a pic are quite different.

Further if you zoom the pic and take a close look at the fuel tanks, u can see that tanks at the wing pylon have bright upper area while the one at center pylon is relatively dark. plus the rear gearbox is also casting quite a realistic shadow on it .

Also take a look at the grooves on these three fuel tanks. u can see that the difference is obvious. The ones on the left fuel tank are almost visible and are patchy due to light and shadows. The ones on the center-line fuel tank are clearly visible as they all are in the shadow. and the ones on the right are completely invisible as they are under dark shadow cast by the center lower fuselage of the plane.

Now, it can be safely assumed that if it is a photoshop, then the guy who did the editing has to be a fan-boy and not some Indian secret agent, in order to make us believe in the reality of the pic and acheive his goals would pay attention to such small details ?

So, is this pic for real ? Well, the level of detail in this pic, clearly, IMHO, negates the assumption that pic is a photoshop. But it could also be that the editor is well versed in editing. But Y would some fan boy put so much effort into it ?and definitely, im no Mastero, there are better guys than me out there. So, we cant know for sure if this pic is real or not, until the official confirmation emerges.
