Default What Block for the JF-17

I've been looking for that information since a few weeks, is there anywhere an official anounce from Deka for which Block we will get for the Thunder? I would personnaly really like to get the Block II at least, for the A/A refueling capabilities.

No probs.
@aeriaGloria not sure to be honest https://thaimilitaryandasianregion.w...xiaolong-jets/ this is a fantastic read through on the JF17 though it seems to be a bit of a mixture of Block 1 and II info but you should come away with a general idea of what to expect.

This is for the block 1 or 2?




From what I read the block 1 doesn't have datalink?

I don't believe block 1 has datalink, but not certain. Most of that payload is correct for EA, but there are some items that aren't confirmed for release or at all.
Edit- I belive all the weapons except the ALCM/JSOW will be in. We will have the C802-AKG for long range engagements to air to ground targets. But it has not been confirmed if we are getting an ALCM. Most of the weapons we will get, but maybe not in the exact stores configuration (not all have dual racks yet) on release.

I believe the current version is block I, but they have said they would look into doing block II if it made sense down the road.

Yeah I am curious to this as well. They released images of a Datalink but that is a Block II. But we aren't getting AAR? So are they making some fake mashup of the two combined?
