In Chinese Sohu: J-31 fighters could help Pakistan withstand the Su-30MKI and the Indian Air Force Rafale

The Chinese press is discussing a growing partnership between China and Pakistan. The military section of the Sohu portal says that under current conditions it would be nice to continue along the path of military-technical cooperation with Islamabad. The author of the material is sure that with the help of such cooperation “it is possible to resist India more effectively”. In particular, it recalls how in February last year, the Indian Air Force violated the Pakistani air borders and launched a strike, calling it a blow to the terrorist camp in Balakota.

Sohu notes that China and Pakistan are already actively cooperating in terms of combat projects aviation. At the same time, it is suggested that Pakistan receive “substantially greater help” in the Chinese media. As such assistance, the author suggests introducing Pakistan into the program for creating the fifth generation fighter J-31.

From the material:

Faced with the Indian invasion, Pakistan would like to acquire Chinese J-10C aircraft. But if Pakistan can afford to buy a batch of J-10C, then would it not be better for him to offer the option J-31.

The author concretizes his thought. According to him, even if Pakistan contracts several J-10s, then this will not be enough to withstand the Indian Su-30MKI and the Rafale purchased from France. So far, there are problems with the supply of Rafale to India. They promised to deliver the first batch in April-May, but due to well-known events in the world, the deadlines are postponed.

From the article:

So why not give Pakistan the opportunity to take a step forward - an option with the J-31.

The author believes that the J-31 will help the Pakistan Air Force in the confrontation with the mentioned Indian Air Force aircraft.

It should be recalled that the J-31 program stalled in China itself. In China, this aircraft is positioned as the future basis for the wing of the PLA Navy aircraft carriers. However, several important problems have not yet been resolved, including problems with take-off and landing parameters related to optimal combat load.

The article does not hide the fact that Chinese designers with J-31 have problems, but they relate to precisely that component that is characteristic of carrier-based fighters. Pakistan does not need such a component today. Therefore, the Chinese author offers an export version of the J-31 for the Pakistan Air Force.

    And where is the news alternative - where is the same “Messenger of Mordovia?” Tired of reading Chinese get along, as they suddenly became almost the number one empire in the Solar System on STEAD ideas and technologies. ! Won, even in hypersound the first in the world! Only, they forgot to indicate that Chinese hypersonic is two-thirds of ordinary supersonic. ...

        Zadorin1974- I do not read Soviet newspapers, due to the lack of the Soviet Union! And so I would read it with pleasure! They didn’t get hung up on the same “blueness” in the stage, they wrote simply and plainly about life as it is! hi

          You can go to the reading room of the library and order a selection of Soviet newspapers. If the library is large, then everything is there. Four years ago, at work (at school), he took a selection of Soviet newspapers for April 1961. In Pravda, April 13, or something: the entire issue is dedicated to the first manned flight into space, Soviet man! And somewhere on the last page a little note: "In the USA, from the launch site at Cape Canaveral, another failed launch of the launch vehicle took place, the rocket exploded at launch." He sat giggling, disturbing the librarian. smile

    Interestingly, does Pakistan have money to buy a J-31? Is the entire range of missile and bomb weapons for the inside fuselage bays developed? And what price will be for such missiles and bombs compared to conventional ones ... ... ... If the buyers were the monarchies of the Persian Gulf, this is understandable. But poor Pakistan ... ...

      In order to put India in two fires, our narrow-film comrades can come up with some kind of leasing.

    Chinese super technology caused by stolen development, Xerox and not much else, super under-plane, super under-hyper-rocket, super under-boat, etc., the list of Chinese super "under" can go on for a long time!
    What did they do from scratch without using other people's technologies? There is nothing!

    Actually, the Chinese experts have already initially positioned their Gyrfalcon, as an exported aircraft, to the peak of the F-35. So, it is not surprising that China wants to “plug in” Pakistan.
    There are more questions to our KLA, why are we not developing a light fifth-generation fighter?

    One gets the impression that China really wants to test its aircraft in real combat conditions, so even through the media they are trying to create an opinion about the need to acquire them. Moreover, some authors from Sohu have overdid so much in their laudatory releases of the best, latest, unique and unique in the world that even Trump nervously smokes on the sidelines. If you want to know the real possibilities of your military aircraft, get involved in the Russian fight against terrorism in Syria.

    if the Indians abandon the instant 35, then it can be safely offered to the Pakistanis, it is a cut above the ancient f16

    Well, the Chinese are tricky. They want to test their planes at combat expense in combat conditions. And then they were worried about the Pakistanis, yeah, schaaz, wait by the sea for the weather. Well, they are cunning, you have to keep an eye on them and in no case transfer the coolest technologies.

    All manufacturers have one song: -Our weapon is the most arsenal and will disarm everyone, that their arms will fall off.
    Only a real battle puts everything in its place.

    the Chinese really took it very hard to publicize their achievements in the defense industry, but how they put in operation ships of rank 1 and 2 it is, but they make excellent laptops, etc., etc., but even the supposedly great electronic country Nippon doesn’t create radars like the Americans do and it’s not the pressure of the Amer’s authorities and corporations is just one thing laptop vacuum cleaners and a completely different thing the military, Russia is not very electronics-wise, but are our air defense systems and the latest fighter radars not bad when Japan creates an analogue of the S-350? Yes, not everything is fine in the kingdom of Denmark, but to fall into a completely black pessimism, I think too much

    J-31 is a good target for Su-30 and Rafaley. Wherever the Chinese are trying to build their ... ram.
