Everybody knows that there no guarantee for Chinese friendship and no guarantee for product. We have seen in Dubai that every shop owner has said there is no guarantee for chinese product so why you are wasting this money to buy these chinese product and killing your pilots.

it was unbelieveable incident. because the Avionics of jf-17 is too much reliable. we cant think about the crash this look like a dream because every system in this aircraft has the backup and backup systems. may be there will be discrepancy but i think it was some oweful and pain full drama by the enemy agencies.
