Pakistan Chengdu J 10C 640First note Pakistan Air Force J-10C

The first two Chengdu J-10Cs for the Pakistan Fiza'ya (Pakistan Air Force), serials 22-102 and 22-106, have been photographed in China. The photo, although poor in quality, shows the J-10C is a two-tone grey colourscheme.

These two are part of an order for 25 of these single-engine multirole fighter aircraft. The first deliveries are planned to take place before 23 March 2022, Defence Day in Pakistan, so they can participate in the yearly parade. Allegedly, two were already delivered but we have no confirmation for that.

The J-10C is an upgraded version of the J-10B, it is equipped with an Active electronically scanned array (AESA) fire-control radar and is equipped with imaging infrared seeker (IIR) PL-10 and new long range dual pulse rocket motor PL-15 air-to-air missile (AAM).

On 30 December 2021, Scramble Magazine reported that Pakistan Air Force seemed ready to receive the Chinese made Chengdu Aircraft Corporation (CAC) J-10CE fighter.
