Yeah, that was my thought, their sales will likely suffer if its released alongside the F16 as most people don't know what it is to begin with. Then again 17>16 so maybe some noobs will buy it based on that .

Also, will it be released complete or as EA?

Deka seems to be going for complete. I don’t think there is many people who have always wanted the Falcon and would just switch for no reason. I think of it like an event, fly the new F-16 on multiplayer against the new JF-17

Yeah, I think the JF17 on paper can be better than the 16 in some regards. But overall they are very comparable aircraft. I think the main advantage the JF17 has to the 16 is if its released in a more complete state.

I think Deka could use some good marketing/trailers before release as everyone I talk to seems very interested in the aircraft its just they have not heard of it before.

Rest assured, progress is very rapid. The reason for less news is that they prefer to focus all their energy on development.

Apparently yeah it got C701 wich are small mavericks... Kind of... I didn't manage to get any pictures... For payload here it is... So 4 maverick alike missiles, without TPod... so no extra fuel tank if you take Tpod under belly https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...e422aeec63.jpg
Remember, it is smaller, lighter and still less equiped in multirole fighter class compare to good old F16. Jf is still really young and block III allready on its way IRL to fil the gap from A/G payload.

JF17 can't use AGM65, but it has a similar missile, C701T. Air-to-surface missile modified from C701 anti-ship missile. I have a C701 weapon image page published by developers
