This event marks the start of a major new economy fighter platform that the Chinese aviation industry is marketing to developing countries.  The very nice part of it all is that with the Russian refusal to supply their engines, the Pakistan Air force is accepting our reversed engineered version of the RD93, which makes the plane even cheaper to build. The JH-17 outperforms early F-16 varients and costs ONLY 15 million USD a piece.  Already over 200 orders from 3 different countries have been placed for this fighter.

Wrong board. BTW any plane looks awkward when photographed at this angle.
