"Equal in quality to other machines": Azerbaijani media about the imminent receipt of the first JF-17 aircraft

136

During the recent Karabakh war, Pakistan became one of the few countries that openly supported the offensive campaign of the Azerbaijani army. Apparently, this position of Islamabad became the basis for a sharp rapprochement between the two countries.


In recent weeks, there have been constant contacts between the military-political leadership of the two states. At the expert level, the discussion is about the possible creation of the Ankara-Baku-Islamabad axis. Against this background, information on the imminent receipt of Pakistani aircraft appeared on Azerbaijani resources.

The first JF-17 Block 3 fighter-bomber (2019 modification with AFAR KLJ-7A and wide-angle holographic display) will arrive in the country in February, according to the statements of the Azerbaijani Ministry of Defense. The second plane will be delivered approximately in 2022-2023. In total, 10 JF-21s will be handed over to Baku within 17 years as part of a barter deal - in exchange for oil.

This is a modern aircraft, equal in quality to similar machines in other countries.

- believes the portal AZERBAIJAN online.

JF-17 is the Pakistani designation for the FC-1 aircraft, developed jointly with China, based on the J-7, a "clone" of the Soviet front-line fighter MiG-21.

    Something didn’t make me happy with this news in the morning, it’s not even about the airplanes, but about this “bunch of” partners!

      JF-17 is the Pakistani designation for the FC-1 aircraft, developed jointly with China, based on the J-7, a "clone" of the Soviet front-line fighter MiG-21.


      It should be noted that nothing remained of the J-7, and even more so of the MiG-21, in the form of the JF-17 / FC-1.
      At least in the glider.

        I agree. Where is the handsome MIG and where are the disposable freaks?
        Originally conceived in Chengdu as a further development of the F-7, the new fighter eventually acquired a completely new look. With the Chinese clones of the MiG-21, it is in fact related only to similar dimensions (aircraft length - 14 m, wingspan - 8,5 m, wing area - 24 m2) and mass (empty aircraft weighs 6450 kg, normal takeoff weight is 9100 kg, and the maximum - 12 kg), and the ventral cannon mount of 400 mm caliber.

                  It is a pity that we did not take this path. We made an obviously unnecessary MiG-29, in the presence of the Su-27. If they made an aircraft a la JF-17, they would still be stamped and surpassed in the number of F-16s.

                    One engine in peacetime is cheaper to operate.
                    Two engines - in wartime, an additional chance for the pilot to return home.

                      Theory is good, in practice the F-16 is the most widespread, and the MiG-29 is the most downed fighter of the 4th generation.

                        Read about the war between two African countries. In service with one MiG-29, the second has Su-27. Here there is the number of battles, the number of aircraft in each battle, which and how many aircraft were shot down)))). Very interesting. If you are reluctant to look, then Migi were always beaten, even with the numerical superiority ...

                      Not necessary. It is very important not only the possibility of mass production of the vehicle, but also a trained crew. For example, the Japanese had a massive, cheap A6M Zero, but it was extremely vulnerable, and even the bushido code that did not allow pilots to evade superior enemy forces. As a result, the Japanese quickly lost their highly trained pilots. The shortage of good pilots is considered one of the reasons for Japan's defeat in WWII.

                      I have never delved into Japanese problems, but I remember about our Yak-1, for example. And how the Yak-3 grew out of it. Cheap and effective. And yes, in that war, the shortage of pilots did not solve anything - the war was decided on the ground, the Air Force was only one of the participants in the process, far from the most important.

                When the Su-27 appeared, the MiG-29 was already in mass production. The problem is that a fundamental decision was made (in my opinion, erroneous) to refuse to develop promising single-engine combat aircraft.

                  They appeared almost simultaneously, the difference is 1-2 years maximum. Therefore, the decision to launch two similar machines is surprising.

                    The initial prototype of the Su-27 - T-10, which is called "did not take off": could not achieve the desired characteristics. After alteration and long-term refinement in 1985, the Su-27 began to enter the troops for trial operation, and was adopted only in 1990. The MiG-29 began to enter the troops in 1983 and was put into service in 1987. In addition, the MiG-29 was actively exported almost immediately, both to the countries of the Warsaw Pact (Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland, Czechoslovakia, the GDR), and to others countries (Iraq, Syria, India, Iraq, Syria, Yugoslavia, DPRK, Eritrea, Sudan ...).

                The layout of the Su-27 and MiG-29 is the same:
                Normal aerodynamic configuration with an integral layout, load-bearing fuselage, smoothly mating with trapezoidal wing roots, two-keel vertical tail. Two engines are installed in insulated engine nacelles; the main air intakes of the engines are located under the center section.
                After the failure with the original T-10, the future Su-27 was radically redesigned. In fact, the layout of the MiG-29 was copied.

Yes, according to the drawings, the nose has been radically redesigned, and the rest of the elements have been modified based on aerodynamics. Mig's contours are easy to guess

              A further development of the line of the Chinese MiG-21 - the front-line fighter J-7 - was the FC-1 light multipurpose aircraft.
              Therefore, it was quite natural to conclude an agreement with the Grumman firm on October 21, 1988, providing for the provision of technical assistance to the Chinese side in the development of an improved CATIC Super-7 fighter. The new aircraft was a deep modernization of the J-7 fighter, from which it differed in lateral non-adjustable air inlet entrances, an enlarged wing with slats and overhangs, a new cockpit canopy providing improved visibility, a gargrot with an overhead fuel tank, a single filling unit, an emergency brake hook, a vertical plumage of increased area, chassis with wheels of larger diameter and steerable front wheel.
              The program was funded in part by Pakistan, which was seen as the main potential importer of the Super-7.
              In 1991, the design bureau of SAS in Chengdu began designing the FC-1 aircraft, which is a logical continuation of the Super-7 concept. This time, the main partner of the Chinese was the Russian design bureau. A.I. Mikoyan.
              A version of the aircraft for the Pakistani Air Force was designated JF-17 Thunder.
              In other words, the JF-17 Thunder is a deeply modernized MiG21bis ...

              And this is quite natural. And there is no and cannot be. Who will buy weapons that are not in service with the manufacturer's army? And in Russia it has long been decided that single-engine aircraft are not needed, and light MFIs are also not particularly favored, for which there are reasons. And so with those developments that are being conducted Russia can hardly cope with the real rearmament of the Aerospace Forces. And to develop something exclusively for export - there are no resources simply. It would be another matter if this technique did find its place in the Russian army ..

          The advantage of Armenia in its positions on the tops of the mountains and the presence of Azerbaijani troops at the bottom allowed the Armenians to hold back a large number of Azerbaijani forces with small forces. The air force would reduce this advantage, Turkey partially replaced this UAV, modernizing ammunition for the SU-25. Azerbaijan's F-16 would have had fewer casualties from Azerbaijan.

          Yes, the Armenians have been telling these tales for more than 10 years, and the result is known to everyone. Only Azerbaijan had 20% of the lands under the occupation of Armenians, which they plundered. But now Azerbaijan has them with all their resources, plus the front-line lands will fully heal, which also could not full work due to the shelling at the front, so everything will be fine.

              No, this is because they don’t sell anything else on the market! For the army, everything in the required quantity was purchased anyway. The weak side was the Air Force and this problem was partially solved by the UAV, partially by smart ammunition for the SU-25. And for the coming years of investments the purchase of new weapons is not particularly needed, except for the air segment again, and Azerbaijan's reserve is 50 billion, so that all the norms bully

      Gripen and T-50 have American engines and they are more expensive. F-16 and F-35 in the same steppe. Aermacchi M-346 seems to have been ordered, but it seems that the deal did not take place. And there is nothing else on the market.
      They simply do not need more powerful and advanced machines; theater performance is measured in tens of kilometers, maximum in hundreds. The Air Force needs to be updated, they are just physically old. And then a relatively modern and relevant fighter-bomber can use the range of weapons that they already have, the well-known and understandable RD-93. The choice is right for Azerbaijan from all sides.

    One of the greatest mistakes of the West and Russia is to stop producing weapons that can only be exported. The best buy would be a single-engine fighter that can be equipped at the customer's request. In the West, we only have f16 and gripen, but they cannot use Russian weapons, and this presents an obstacle to procurement for countries that have stocks of Russian missiles, bombs and ammunition. In Russia, single-engine fighters are not produced.

    Azerbaijan has clearly decided to save money. They clearly understand that they will no longer engage in high-intensity battles. the basic task is completed - they liberated most of their territory. Directly, they hardly plan to take Nagorno-Karabakh by storm or massively use aviation on it. Therefore, it will be enough for them on the JF-17 to control their airspace and drop precision bombs on a tip from a drone, while staying outside the zone of object air defense. At the same time, our engines are on the JF-17 and export to third countries would not have been possible without our consent. The Chinese offered to install their engines, but Pakistan has so far refused this idea. Additionally, this is an indicator that countries of the 2nd ... 3rd echelons do not need very sophisticated twin-engine machines, and our designers should have prepared a similar single-engine machine for supply to such countries, especially since the reliability of the RD-33 and AL-31F engines is already 3000 .4000 hours, which will provide sufficient reliability

    You, nevertheless, wishful thinking. Like many Armenians, however.
    Gas production in Azerbaijan is on the rise: in 2017 (17,8 billion cubic meters), in 2018 -19,0, in 2019 -24,3 (28% increase !!). https://www.bp.com/content/dam/bp/business-sites/en/global/corporate/pdfs/energy-economics/statistical-review/bp-stats-review-2020-full-report.pdf
    The figures for 2020 have not yet been made public, but there is definitely a significant increase and will continue in the medium term.
    Moreover, gas supplies to Europe began at the end of 2020. It would probably be illogical to start exporting it to Europe with a decline in gas production.
    You give out statistics on Azerbaijan somehow negatively ..
    And in terms of oil, despite a certain decline, production, with the commissioning of a new platform, is relatively stable for the near future.
    Azerbaijan, with its reforms and development of the non-oil sector, together with 50 billion Baku gold reserves, has a solid reserve for many years.
    The problems with the economic downturn, especially due to the pandemic, are obvious. And who doesn't have them?
