Myanmar Furious with Pakistan: Fighter Jets Stalled Due to Defects


The government of Myanmar is said to be furious with Pakistan because the 11 multirole fighter jets it bought are stalled in the hangar due to defects. The Myanmar military junta government is said to have sent a firm message to the Pakistani government and demanded that they take responsibility for this mess.

Quoted from Business Today, a total of 11 Myanmar JF-17 Thunder fighter jets that were sent between the 2019-2021 period were declared unfit to fly, and had to be stationary in the hangar. The 11 aircraft are said to have experienced technical problems and structural defects that could potentially endanger the pilots.

The leader of the Myanmar military junta, General Min Aung Hlaing, is said to have expressed his displeasure over this to former Pakistani Prime Minister, Shehbaz Sharif, and Pakistan Army Chief of Staff (COAS), General Asim Munir.

According to Economic TimesMyanmar’s military junta is deeply disappointed that the jet’s malfunction has largely hampered its plans to increase its air power against the Myanmar insurgency fighting under the banner of the People’s Defense Force.

Myanmar’s anger is said to have received a response from China as the developing country of the JF-17 Thunder. The visit of the Chinese envoy to Naypyitaw (Myanmar) recently reportedly brought a message from the top leadership of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to General Min Aung Hlaing.

For your information, the JF-17 Thunder purchased by Myanmar is a collaborative product of the Pakistan Aeronautical Complex and China’s Chengdu Aircraft Industries Corporation. Myanmar procured this aircraft in 2016 with a total of 16 units. Myanmar became the first country outside of China and Pakistan to use the multirole aircraft.

With the many problems that befell the JF-17 Thunder, Myanmar was said to be refusing to enter into new talks regarding the procurement of aircraft from Pakistan. On the other hand, Pakistan is said to be renegotiating this contract by providing Myanmar with a newer version of the fighter.
