BBN- Defence Reporter- : Jf-17 Thunder is the first fighter aircraft in Asia, which has air-launched the Meteor missile. The first Air Launched Demonstration firing took place in 2010 and was followed by several important flight test campaigns during the year.
Meteor is a European collaborative programme between the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Spain, Sweden and Germany. The missile is planned to be the primary BVR air-to-air missile for all the modern European fighter aircraft; Gripen, Eurofighter and Rafale.
[Editor's Note: As the serial no. of This JF-17 shows that the pic is from 2010, but the no. 166 seems to be a typo. ? . As it was stated that the first batch of Jf-17 will comprise of 50 aircraft, the serial no. should have been 266, showing that it is the 66th aircraft from 2nd batch. Dont know why PAC would make such obvious errors. o.O ]
