Third party developer, Deka Ironworks Simulations, has provided their roadmap for DCS: JF-17 Thunder. It is with great pleasure that we may share it with you. The module is scheduled to exit Early Access by December 2022. By the end of the year, the following items will also be completed:

a. Chinese flight manual update 

b. English flight manual update after finishing the Chinese version

c. Improve existing sensors and fix certain bugs (radar, pod, etc)

d. Improve existing weapons and fix certain bugs

Weapon features will be updated as soon as possible with missing sensor features and functionality such as the WA radar mode which will be added once they are available in DCS. 

After Early Access, the module will continue to receive updates. Notably, external textures will be finalised and more liveries will be added. A canopy ejection animation and a detailed model of the landing gear compartment will be added. The Damage model and Levels of Detail (LOD) will continue to be updated.
