Indian Rafales ‘Far Superior’ To Pakistan’s JF-17 Thunder: Chinese Military Experts

By Eurasian Times

In what seems to be a rare admission, Chinese experts have said that the French-built Rafale fighter jets, procured by India, are far superior to Pakistan Air Force’s (PAF) frontline fighters, the JF-17 Thunder.

Even before five of the 36 Rafale fighters made a touchdown at the Indian Air Force’s Ambala airbase, military experts have been busy pitting the fighters against Pakistan’s JF-17s.

The lightweight, single-engine, multi-role JF-17 fighter was designed in the wake of the PAF seeking a replacement for their aging combat aircraft such as the A-5C, F-7P/PG, Mirage III, and Mirage V.

The aircraft is the end-product of the collaboration of the Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC) and the Chengdu Aircraft Corporation (CAC) of China. Pakistan currently has a fleet of over 100 JF-17 fighter jets, which it has developed with the help of China.
