Pakistan is to sell five Super Mashak aircraft to a private company of South Africa and the signing ceremony in this regard will be one of the salient features of the Ideas 2004 defence equipment exhibition opening here on Sept 13.

Delivery of the 20 Super Mashaks, produced at the PAC Kamra, will commence soon. Kamra has already sold 10 of these aircraft to Oman and five to Iran. Pakistan targeted the South African market about four years ago when it sent the Super Mashak to that country to take part in a display there, Maj-Gen Hamid said. He was of the view that the South African market was important because “what happens in South Africa affects that region.”
