Spokesperson for the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) said that Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC) has achieved its annual production goal successfully.
In a statement issued, the spokesperson informed that authorities have decided to increase production capacities and capabilities of the PAC, Kamra.
This year, the PAC Kamra has handed over 16th unit of the JF-17 Thunder aircraft to the Pakistan Air Force (PAF).
Earlier in September, the PAC had repaired and made the Airborne Warning And Control System (AWACS) aircraft operational on half the cost as compared to foreign companies. This resulted in total saving of USD 15 million. The aircraft was damaged in an attack by terrorists on Kamra aeronautical complex.
Pakistan Air Force is currently operating four squadrons of the JF-17 Thunder, Number 26 (Black Spiders) being the oldest one, which was re-equipped in 2010. Other three include: Number 16 (Black Spiders) in 2011, Number 2 (Minhas) in 2015, and CCS (Dashings) – Pakistan’s Topgun School in 2015.
