Tunisia has bought eight military training aircrafts from the United States as part of a plan to renew the air force's training aircraft fleet, the defense ministry said in a statement on Monday, Trend reports citing Reuters.

A deal was signed between the U.S. government and Textron Aviation Defense to provide Tunisia with the training aircrafts, it added.

The first batch of the new aircrafts is expected to be delivered during March 2023 and the delivery will be completed by October 2026, the statement said.
