Are the recently inducted China-made modern fighter jets better than F-16?

A few days ago, after being tested in Chengdu, the first batch of combat aircraft had arrived in Pakistan.

Today, china-made modern fighter aircraft J-10C has formally been installed into the Pakistan Air force (PAF).

Prime Minister Imran Khan is attending the installation ceremony of the modern fighter jet into the PAF as a chief guest on the special invitation of the Air Chief.

According to a foreign media report, China will deliver 25 J-10C fighter jets to Pakistan to significantly boost the country’s military powers to defend airspace.

A few days ago, after being tested in Chengdu, the first batch of combat aircraft had arrived in Pakistan.

The photos of the J-10C fighter jet with the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) marking recently emerged on social media and circulated widely.

Chinese analysts had lauded the latest defense cooperation between the two countries, commenting on the matter. He said that the move yields tremendous significance to them in promoting combat capabilities of the Pakistan military, enabling China’s aviation equipment, and responding to their security interests in the area.

First issued on social media, the images show two J-10Cs, equipped with China’s domestically produced WS-10B Taihang turbofan engines, launching test flights at an unrevealed location.

The Executive Chief Editor of the Chinese magazine, Shi Hong, said, “The J-10C is a 4.5-generation medium-sized fighter jet. It is larger and can be provided with a larger active electronically examined array radar than the one operated by the JF-17 Block 3.”

“The aircraft is also significantly more powerful than the old US-made F-16 fighter jet of the PAF. It can rival the Rafale fighter jet that recently entered service with the Indian Air Force,” the CEO said.

“Pakistan’s J-10C will not substitute the JF-17 but create a combination, leading to higher warfare capabilities,” Shi added.
