    There is not a single weapon on that midget that will allow it to come close enough to an Indian boat.

    China Shipbuilding Trading Corporation (CSTC) secured an order from the Pakistan navy for four warships. These are thought to be improved variants of the F-22P Zulfiquar class frigates, four of which have already been built for the navy, (three in China and one in Karachi).

    According to a spokesman for Karachi Shipyard and Engineering Works, the Pakistan navy recommended a large number of modifications for the follow on batch of frigates, and these modifications have been accepted by the Chinese designers.

    A spokesman for CSTC was unable to say if the eight FM-90 SAMs (Crotale copy) would be replaced by a larger number of more capable missiles housed in a VLS however. The SAM armament of the current F-22P class frigates is a noted shortcoming of the design.

    @trackwhack

    The picture you have seen are of 500 tonnes FAC azmat class

    the Four new ordered are F-23P(modified f-22p) with displacement more than 3,000 tonnes.though the new ordered are modified and must be close to 4k tonnes in displacement....Manufacturing them at home is most important

    Anyway two more shipyard are about to get active in 2013(one at port qasim and the other in gwadar..both would have infra more upgraded than the KSEW where the f-22P was manufactured.)

    The article says, The new F-22p will be under heavy modifications, but doesn't want to talk whether the missile base will replaces with VLS system. Then what kind of heavy modications thus he talking about?

    I wont be suprised, If they succeed to get a few Type-54A frigates. It wont much of a use against Carrier Group.

    180 series frigates? what are those?

    C602 Coastal defence system would be useless, The Fleet would way out of its range and it would be needed radar to detect targets, which ultimately be located and destroyed.




    Alhtough 30 year old, These Hazard Perry frigate with Harppons looks more better option than recent F-22P Ships.


    Iam glad they opted for Qing class shis. PN actually was under negotiations to acquire a few Type 214 submarines to be builted in thier dockyard but, dropped the deal in favor China

    Type 212 submarines are very silent and perfect choice for shore based defense. Could have perfectly suited Pak requirments

    Ok Thats Hillarious, Good luck with that.
