Sudan received a batch of training aircraft from China

24
The Sudanese Defense Ministry received a batch of Chinese FTC-2000 combat training aircraft, an export version of the JL-9 supersonic combat training aircraft, reports bmpd.




The party of six aircraft transferred to the Air Force of the Republic.

The contract for the supply of 6-UBS was signed by the parties in 2016 year. The amount of the transaction is not reported. Sudan became the first foreign buyer of FTC-2000 aircraft.



The machine was developed and manufactured by the Chinese aircraft manufacturer Guizhou Aircraft Industry Corporation (GAIC, Guiyang, Guizhou Province) and, in fact, is a further development of the JJ-7 family of aircraft - the combat-training version of the J-7 fighter (made in China).

The JL-9 serial release for PLA has been going on since 2011.

Earlier it was reported that the roll-out of the first aircraft built for Sudan took place in June 2017.

    Again, "past the checkout", the Chinese are damping, but it could be our planes! negative We need to more actively sell our equipment in Africa! All countries have diamond deposits there, so there will be no problems with payment with a reasonable solution to the issue.

      What are these stereotypes laughing There is nothing like that in Sudan. Oil is sold (not much) and cotton. Although of course trading with Africa is necessary. There has long been talk of a "return by Russia" of lost ground.

      I think that we have enough intelligence in storage of the same MiG 21s ... you should always have a package (option) of such offers in your portfolio .., but we’re only oriented towards selling new equipment ..., As the saying goes, a chicken by the grain and the whole yard in shit ..., the Chinese do not disdain ...

        And who is stopping us from creating a purely export, completely new version of a light aircraft platform, what should be done on its basis as a fighter, attack aircraft, and intelligence officer. .. ????

          I suspect that marketing research ... creating an export light platform is not profitable !!!! R&D and production will never pay off ...
          if in doubt, give an example of such an aircraft that is exported (excluding the domestic market).

            For many years, not decades, nobody wants to buy equipment that is not in service with the armed forces of the seller’s country.

      We do not have such a competitive aircraft ... Yak-130 is that ?! but it is not supersonic and more expensive. MiG-23 only, but are they alive?

          No laughing . This is the competitor L-15 (JL-10) - who lost in the PLA competition (purchases are very limited - only to their center for retraining and combat use of the Air Force), but received an export license and is actively promoted to all comers at a bargain price. Unlike JL-10 - which is sold more expensive and more limited (because there is a PLA priority).

            Yak130 is even more expensive ... The Chinese are a fairly simple car.

      And what to sell? We don’t have a light subsonic jet plane ... the Yak-130 is too smart ... We need a continuation aircraft SU-17M4 with one AL-31, with simple equipment and can even be mechanically controlled for our needs too ... And only with by their movement and brought, so that there are almost no other options ... And this had to be done the day before yesterday ... Glory to the General Staff and the Air Force, for their intelligence and prudence ... However, I will not be surprised if they want to make an attack aircraft not only from SU-34, and also from TU-22M3 ...

        the question is not correct, the correct one sounds "to whom?"

    China has found a good and long-term market. Then there will be a slow and persistent penetration of China into all countries of the mainland and the goal of all this is the gradual transformation of Africa into one large Chinese province inhabited by Afro-Chinese.

      And how is it in the 2010 year? This has happened a long time ago. They already have a belt from Sudan to Tanzania. Where do they milk a cow. And actively make their way further.

      You are absolutely right, Africa is the richest continent and mining there is much easier than in Russia, China is making a lot of effort to gain a foothold

    China is climbing into Africa with all its Chinese perseverance. Americans are not trying to slow down the process, but he is going. The Chinese, unlike our leaders, are able to build long-term complex plans and slowly, but almost inevitably implement them. Example? Yes, the same Chinese "creeping occupation" of a number of areas of the Primorsky and Khabarovsk territories.
