In 2017, Turkey contracted to buy 52 Super Mushshak training aircraft. In 2016, Pakistan signed a deal with Myanmar for the sale of 16 JF-17 fighters. The dollar value of the contract has not been publicly revealed, but officials privately have said it was for approximately $400 million, including spare parts. A year later, Ankara agreed to buy 1,000 PK-83 general purpose bombs.
