Default More infos on jf17 fuel?

Hi guys, in your récent videos we clearly saw that JF was carrying 5300lbs internal and engine parameter, like in hornet, can be found on left mfd (while under it in f1. We got rpm on left gauge, heat on mid gauge, total fuel on left bar, feed (is that fuel flow?! Seems pretty stable) and under those we got 2 fuel tank gauge.
So my question is where is fuel flow and what is approximative FF around buster loaded and not loaded.
I Just want to estimate range and efficiency of the Chine se rework rd33.

In other post someone said that with 3tanks JF got a slightly better range than f18 3 tanks and f16 with its 2 biggest (huuuuuuuge) tank.

Oh so feed is the total fuel of the tank you are using. And you got 5 fuel tanks?! 4/5 = Wings and 1/2/3 are fuselage (main) fuel tanks. But still i dont see any Fuel flow gauge to get an idea estimate easily your autonomy.
In F14 you get FF in Lbs/h (wich is most easy to use to calculate how long you get) and in f18 fpas help you but you still got fuel flow in lbs/min

Btw... If anyone got answer about potential HMD on JF. I know HMD like hornet/F16 is only plan IRL on block III but i was wondering if JF get a rudimental/basic HMD like su27 and mig29 for its infrared (fox2) missiles wich allow in dogfight to compensate lack of AOA or avoid pull too much g's and keep corner speed

No HMD, infrared missiles are PL-5EII equivalent to a late model but pre-X sidewinder

We implemented one, but HMD is not installed for JF-17 Block I/II in RL.
We just disabled it now, may the HMD come back in the future

So DCS: JF-17 code is as flexible as the real one

well... I would be the first glad of it... Hope as paf modernise its blck 1 and 2 to match blck 3 avionics including new aesa radar and hmds from j10 and j20 ... You could at this time add at least HMD

If i may ask, does jf17 comes with HMD possibility stock but paf didnt need it or is it something "new" and could be upgrade like F16 and F18 get it during upgrade phasis.

it was planned since the prototype.
without proper IR missile, it make no sense to install HMD in RL mission.
but the HMD switch on AAP was reserved, I think it's a wise decision.

It would be interesting if export customers made use of this
