Pakistan Aeronautical Complex signed largest export deal in Pakistan's history with Azerbaijan Air Force, Azernews reports.

The deal for JF-17C Block-III fighter jets was signed for $1.6bn, including aircraft, training and ammunition, Pakistani media reported.

The Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC) is a big company that produces airplanes and other things for the military in Pakistan. It was started in 1971 by the Pakistan Air Force. They make and fix airplanes for the Pakistani military and also for other countries.

They work with companies from Turkiye and China to make some of their products. The PAC also has businesses in other countries like Myanmar, Nigeria, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates. In the past, the Pakistan Air Force realized that they needed a place to fix their airplanes instead of sending them to other countries. So, they made a factory called the Aircraft Rebuild Factory (ARF) in Kamra. They also made another factory called the Mirage Rebuild Factory (MRF) to fix a different kind of airplane. These factories were built with the help of experts from China and France.
