Pakistan and Russia have signed a combat helicopter deal, local media reported Thursday.
Pakistan will receive four Mi-35M Russian helicopters, which would be used in the war on terror, said a Pakistan television report, quoting unnamed military sources.
The Mi-35M boasts enhanced flight capabilities, and can be operated at high temperatures and in mountainous terrain.
Pakistan and Russia had been involved in talks over the past one year to finalize the helicopter deal, sources said.
The two countries signed last year a deal on cooperation between their defense ministries for increasing military efficiency of the armed forces.
In June, Pakistan Army chief General Raheel Sharif visited Russia amidst growing military-to-military contacts.
