Iraq has reportedly signed a contract with a Pakistani company to purchase an unspecified number of fighter jets.
According to Defense World, the aircraft are believed to be JF-17 Block III, which it suggests could be a welcome addition to the Iraqi Air Force, following significant problems maintaining its 34 F-16IQ Block 52 fighters.
The jets are made by the Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC).
