The Egyptian Air Force (EAF) is currently reviewing the progress of the PAC/Chengdu JF-17 Thunder. 

At EDEX 2018 in Cairo, Shephard has learnt that representatives from the EAF held a meeting with AVIC officials at Zhuhai Air Show in early November. 

Officials were provided with a progress report on the more advanced Block 3 version of the Pak-Sino fighter. The EAF requirement could be ‘for more than 100’ aircraft said the source. 

Newer Block 3 versions will be boosted with a Chinese airborne electronically scanned array (AESA) radar as well as an integrated EW system and new avionics.
