Prove yourself. There is no way JF 17 can fire a AMRAM missile.
"The JF-17, of which PAF has some 125, carries Chinese made air-to-air and air-to-ground munitions and is powered by a Russian origin RD-93 engine, a derivative of the RD-33 engine used in the MiG-29 fighter jets. The JF-17 has a top speed of Mach 1.6, similar to the F-16 powered by the Pratt and Whitney F100-PW-229 engine.
In 2017, Turkish firm Aselsan had signed a contract with Pakistan to integrate its ASELPOD Electro Optical Targeting System onto JF-17 fighter jets. The same year, the PAC began a program to integrate Chinese-made PL-12 Beyond Visual Range Air-to-air Missile (BVRAAM) onto the JF-17.
The PAF had claimed success in the test-firing of a BVRAAM from the JF-17 in February 2018 without mentioning the origin of the sophisticated air-to-air missile.
It is entirely possible that the JF-17 which engaged the Indian MiG-21 may have been equipped with both systems."
