"Both the pilots embraced shahadat (martyrdom)", it added.

The Pakistan army uses Mushshak aircraft to train pilots commissioned in its aviation wing.

The aircraft, which is manufactured indigenously, is a big source of export earnings for Pakistan and sold to several Middle Eastern countries.

The exact cost of the aircraft and number sold have not been made public.
