Iraq has signed a $1.1 billion contract for 24 Korea Aerospace Industries T-50 advanced jet trainers, giving the South Korean firm its second international customer for the type. The deal was signed between Iraqi government officials and senior officials from KAI on 12 December.
“I am thankful to the Iraqi government to purchase the T-50 aircraft,” says Ha Sung-yong, president and chief executive of KAI.
“I think that the T-50 is the most optimal aircraft suitable for Iraq’s military operations. We will make our utmost efforts to support the Iraqi air force and ensure the smooth operation of the T-50.”
