JF-17B “Bravo” has slightly bigger nose than Alpha which means that Bravo can house different radar than Block-1 & Block-2 but sources reveal that Bravo uses KLJ-7 V2 radar used by JF-17 Thunder Block-2 (PAF might go for KLJ-7A AESA radar “Block-3’s Radar” for Bravo in future).
The “Ground Clearance” of Bravo is better than Alpha which will enable Bravo to carry RA’AD II ALCM under its belly like Mirages of PAF.
Important Note: Recently PAF has released a video in which PAF’s No.16 Squadron “Black Panthers” has been shown with both JF-17 Alpha (Single Seat) & JF-17 Bravo (Dual Seat). PSF has decided to do comprehensive analysis on physical differences between Alpha & Bravo.
Note (2): “This analysis is between Block-1/2 & Block-B (Bravo). Please do not take it as reference for Thunder Block-3”.
