Nigeria signed a deal with Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC) for 10 Super Mushshak aircraft in October 2016. “This contract would not only open new avenues for export of aviation equipment to foreign countries but also help in generating revenue for the country,” a statement issued by the Pakistan Air Force said.

The Super Mushshak has been sold to Syria, Qatar, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran, Turkey and Pakistan.

The Super Mushshak primary trainer aircraft is a more advanced, upgraded variant of the MFI-17 Mushshak. It was designed and is being manufactured by Pakistan Aeronautical Complex.

The aircraft is powered by a Textron Lycoming IO-540 V4A5 (260hp), allowing a maximum speed of 268 km/h and a cruise speed of 240 km/h. It has a range of 814 km and a endurance of about 4 hours.
