The T-129 with the US Honeywell engine? Lol.
Well, to be fair the Turks are actually developing their own turboshaft engine for the T-129, but I doubt they'll get it operational on time, it is more than likely that the pakis will have to beg for the Honeywell engine.
And quite a few of the ATAK's weapons are foreign.

AH1Z are not embargoed but delayed. Reasons why AH1Z delivery is late 1:Hangers are not ready in Pakistan 2:pak pilots have not yet completed their training courses yet 3:Electronic and cockpit equipment is not timely prepared due to busy production-line for those components

It seems like Pakistan is getting AH-1Z Viper attack helicopter but it's delayed.
