The Pakistan Air Force (PAF) may develop a third squadron for the indigenously produced JF-17 Thunder aircraft by early next year.

The air force has already equipped the 26 Squadron and the 16 Squadron with the aircraft.

The PAC JF-17 Thunder is a lightweight, single-engine, multi-role combat aircraft primarily developed to meet PAF requirements.

The aircraft was jointly developed by Chengdu Aircraft Industries Corporation (CAC) of China, the PAF and Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC).

The PAF intends to equip the aircraft with air-to-air refuelling capability to boost its range, according to Press Trust of India.
