Turkish Aerospace Industries has modernized the last four Pakistan’s F-16 fighter jets, completing a five-year contract, according to reports.

The company, known by the acronym TUSAS, signed a contract with Pakistan’s Ministry of Defense in 2009. Under the program, Turkish technicians were to upgrade and test 41 aircraft, World Bulletin reported. 

The first of the planes were delivered two years ago.

TUSAS began co-producing U.S.-designed F-16s for the Turkish Air Force in 1984 and is one of the world’s main aerospace companies involved in F-16 manufacture and modernization, it added.
