You do know that even PAF doesn't have block 3 yet right?

Aselpods are being carried by in service jf-17s. The only reason I can think of deka not adding that is because of lack of access and public data available since it's a Turkish product

PL-10 is not confirmed. And as far as we know exactly one prototype has flown. I see it possible as a module refresh in5 years maybe but that’s it, we’re already extremely modern with block 2. The Eurofighter we are getting has sidewinders and mechanical radar, no irst, so will have good performance but not be technically much crazier then what we have currently

Only more modern by date, even the German Eurofighter has Radar MAWS, RWR cued IRIS-T, Rwr range without jammer pod. Voice control. Super cruise.

But it does not have AESA, so from early tranche 1/2 EF to AESA of JF-17 Block 3 is still a big jump for radar technology. The EF is one of the most expensive planes, it has top of the line defensive and warning systems.

Tranche 1 EF could be 2007 era. Our block 2 JF is 2015. Militaries don’t want their newest technologies compromised,, so that difference of dates is HUGE

Despite not having AESA (except the Kuwaiti ones), it does have the best non-AESA radar in the world. Regardless of the tranche, the Typhoon (even a Tranche 1) will be the best air to air platform in DCS by a very large margin for a long time to come, unless somehow we get a 5th gen jet.

Yes, reading up on it, it will be a peerless and respectable foe for Jeff In MP it’s what the JF was suppossed to do, use numbers and tactic to overwhelm a txhnically superior adversary. Sadly I don’t think the free trial didn’t bring many new people however.

The JF has an advantage in defensive systems before, this will make it second, but I’m so happy anyways, it will be so much fun to fly against or with, and who knows maybe I’ll have to get it.

I believe Pakistan has some degree of access to it as well, supplying military officers to Qatar and their relations, I think there is footage of them training together....

This also makes the PG map a better fit and more fleshed out for Jeff
