China and Pakistan are unveiled model of new JF-17B two-seater multirole fighter

The China National Aero-Technology Import & Export Corporation (CATIC) in collaboration with the Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC) is developing a new version of JF-17 aircraft.

The model of new JF-17B two-seater multirole fighter was unveiled at the China International Aviation & Aerospace Exhibition in Zhuhai.

The JF-17B retains full combat capability, and as much of the existing airframe is being kept as possible. The design features a humped dorsal spine to restore the fuel capacity displaced by the second seat, in turn requiring a dorsal fin to restore keel area.

Currently, the aircraft is integrated with three Chinese weapons–the PL-5 and SD-10 air-to-air missiles and the C-802AK long-range anti-ship missile. Other ordnance used by the aircraft is produced in Pakistan by the Air Weapons Complex.
