Islamabad: Pakistan has signed an agreement for the sale of 10 Super Mushshak aircraft to the Nigerian Air Force (NAF), defence officials said.

“The contract signing ceremony was held at Abuja (Nigeria) where Air Vice Marshal Iya Ahmed Abdullahi and Air Marshal Arshad Malik, Chairman of the Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC), signed the contract,” Pakistan Air Force (PAF) spokesman Syed Mohammad Ali said on Friday.

The contract includes operational training and technical support and assistance to the NAF.

The PAF would completely establish this facility in the shortest possible time, he said.

The contract will not only open new avenues for export of aviation equipment to foreign countries but also help generate revenue for the country.

The aircraft is already in service with Saudi Arabia, Oman, Iran and South Africa.

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