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.

Jf-17E Block 3 : Thunder XL

Inspired from the F-16 XL project, this modification gives JF-17 Thunder a substantial increase in payload, range, and speed. Unlike the crancked arrow wing of F-16XL, this particular Jf-17 mounts a diamond shaped wing, commonly associated with YF-23 Black Widow. Primarily intended for Strike role, Block 3 because of its increased internal fuel capacity and payload, the JF-17 XL can carry twice the payload of the JF-17,  40% further. The increased payload was carried on 17 hardpoints, which were arranged as follows:
6 wing weapons stations (750 lb capacity)
4 semi-submerged SD-10A stations
2 wingtip stations
1 centerline station
2 wing "heavy / wet" stations (2000 lb)
2 chin stations for Targetting/ navigational pods.

General characteristics:
Crew: 2
Length: 50 ft 2 in (16.51 m)
Wingspan: 31 ft 3 in (10.44 m)
Height: 15 ft 7 in (5.36 m)
Wing area: 533 ft2 (58.81 m2)
Empty weight: 15,000 lb (7,980 kg)
Max takeoff weight: 28,000 lb (14,775 kg)
Powerplant: 1× WS-10 turbofan
Dry thrust: 17,155 lbf (76.3 kN)
Thrust with afterburner: 28,984 lbf (128.9 kN)
Maximum speed: Mach 2.0
Range: 2,480 nm (2,850 mi, 4,590 km)
Service ceiling: 50,000 ft (15,240 m)
Rate of climb: 62,000 ft/min (315 m/s)


  1. you have given a nice concept but i would like it to be stealthy and your concept can have stealthy features probably but i would like to see some change in the design of jf17 thunder nose as well , it should be change to f-22 raptor nose design , f-35 , i think it should be canard and engine will give it more thrust and more speed and aesa radar will make it truly a striker plane , some design still need improvement might be delta wing will give its design some boost over all , let see whats comes out hope fully Pakistan and china will build a low cost marvelous 4.5 or 5 generation plane .

    1. Dear Anonymous :

      Thankyou for ur input. I appreciate it greatly. I think your observations are spot on. For a strike aircraft to survive these days, stealth of some degree is vital.

  2. No need stealth ....blow AMRAAM'S AND ENJOY THE RIDE

  3. Pakistan should build supersonic or hypersonic missile for counter indian Intercepter missile system.
    Also should build stealth missiles.

    1. Pakistan Already had RAAD & BABUR cruise missiles and those cruise missiles can also capable for travelling at supersonic or hypersonic speed...
