    Nothing is free.

    I suspect that in return Pakistan will provide Pakistani mercenaries to boost manpower for ISIS or for the "moderate" terrorists in Syria.

    How will Turkey be benefited from this freebie donations?

    Or perhaps, USA advised Turkey to donate the aircrafts on behalf of them?

    There must be something they want in return. Nobody gives away 34 fighter aircrafts for free.

    It's not uncommon to donate excessive or obsolete equipment to allies or friendly countries.
    PAF too has donated older migs to other countries like BD and SL.

    Turkey has 40 KAI KT-1 on order from South Korea.
    It may also me noted that TAF doesn't use T-37 and has only T-38 in its inventory.
    These T-37's might be from storage.
