    Super Mushshak is already an export success serving with several air forces.
    Iraq is a potential customer for JF-17 Thunder aswell.

    Well done Pakistan!

    The Pakistan Air Force (PAF)-run Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC) at Kamra, just north of Islamabad, signed an agreement with the Iraqi Air Force (IQAF) on 10 February to supply an unspecified number of its Super Mushshak basic trainer aircraft to Iraq: the first ever aircraft deal between the two countries.

    The sooper dooper Mushy-suck is nothing but the Saab MFI-17, renamed to fit Paki sensibilities. This aircraft was introduced in 1972, so slightly past its prime, one might say! :lol:

    Iraq could be the first export customer for India's Sitara trainer jet:



    Designed in the late 1990's, the IAF plans to order over 200 of these birds.

    What for! For Pak re-exporting a 1970's era civilian turboprop and claiming it to be a great achievement? :pound:

    FYI, India has exported more helicopters to countries around the world (and far more capable helis than this POS "aircraft"). :rolleyes:

    Wow, really pissed at our success ey?
    Don't worry, someday your basic trainer will finally mature and see one or two export orders.
    Hang in there!

    The narrator of the video is a shill.

    Look at this link for images pulled up with search term "trainer aircraft"

    Notice all of them are low-wing with retractable landing gear, and many are jets.

    Peddle your toys elsewhere.

    You are still depending on imported Pilatus basic trainers wasting $1.8 billion dollar, a field we have reached full self sufficiency and we are exporting basic trainers.
    Our pilots have trained on this reliable basic trainer before getting into advanced F-
    16 and JF-17's and according to some Red Flag veterans PAF pilots are among the best in the world.

    Try to force your toys into Iraq like everything else. The fact is that they chose MFI-17 above all, period.
