Yes, you'll have multiple air to surface modes such as AGR, MAP, BCN, GMTI, SEA1, SEA2, TA, and WA. (planned)

Congratulations to all Deka members for all the exciting times, I'm really excited by this module, hope you can provide a good template and several skins for it. Depending on the part of Afghanistan represented in the new map, we can have bases for the JF-17 in Pakistan.

Aren't those RWR antennas, like A-10A has on its nose and tail?


I may be wrong, but they look quite similar, while MAWS detectors often have a clearly visible optical elements.

They are MAWs as part of Optical Electronic Self Protection (OESP) system.

I'm looking forward to flying the JF-17 as an aggressor against the guys in my virtual Canadian Hornet squadron for ACM training. The pirouette logic of the FBW and the simulation recovering itself looks very good to me. I think the fact that the JF-17 is full fidelity, multirole with the ability to carry a wide variety of weapons, it looks like it has pretty good AA missiles, it has MFD's and an informative HUD, and what looks like fairly good visibility out of the cockpit will make this simulation a game changer for people looking to fly red jets on multiplayer servers.

If the JF-17 is offered in EA for a 20-25% discount similar to the Hornet I would pick it up in EA.

One could say, the JF-17 is the red coalitions F-16, for just half the price of an F-16...
Only thing we may be missing is SEAD, or can it do SEAD as well?
