Is it YJ83K ASM or C-802A?What are the differences between the two?
@Qamar the C-802A is based on the older YJ-82 series. It's newer variants are still an effective anti-ship missile.But the YJ-83, on which the more advanced C-803 anti-ship missile is based, is the next-gen successor to the C-802/YJ-82. For the JF-17, being integrated with the more advanced C-803/YJ-83K means the aircraft is deadlier in the anti-ship role.
I thought China is not using JF17 at all. I wonder whether China have solved the WS 13 Engine as a fully fledged turbofan engine or has become fully operational engine?Hopefully, you can enlighten us.
Qasim i know about the fact that C-802A is an improved version of C-802 and Chinese have also developed YJ83/C-803This was the basic reason i asked the questionPAF has openly displayed C-802A not YJ-83 with JF-17 Thunder but the article mentions YJ-83, Why?And i was asking bout the physical differences between the two missiles?C-802A with 180 kilometers range is sufficiently long range for the JF-17 Thunder especially when considering the AM-39 and Mirage V combo it will be replacing
