The deal is in line with the NAF's plans to purchase up to 20 JF-17s from Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC) at a cost of $25m, and Super Mushshak basic trainers at $10.2m, IANS Pakistan reported.

The Pakistan Air Force was quoted by media sources as saying: "This contract would not only open new avenues for export of aviation equipment to foreign countries but also help in generating revenue for the country.

"The deal further strengthens PAC's status as a world class aviation industry producing the supersonic JF-17 Thunder and Super Mushshak trainer aircraft.”

The contract also requires Pakistan to provide operational training and technical support and assistance to the NAF.

PAC's MFI-395 Super Mushshak is a military trainer / light attack aircraft derived from the MFI-17 Mushshak trainer aircraft.

Designed to provide primary flight training to pilots, Super Mushshak is equipped with a blind screen, which allows the aircraft to carry out instrument flying missions.

"The glass cockpit of the aircraft has enough space to accommodate two flight crew members, a student pilot and a flight instructor."
