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

    Re: PN to get four more Modified f-22p frigates

    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.

    Re: Pakistan to Get Four more F-22P Frigates

    @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.)

    When you say, Manufacturing these ships at home is important, then why arent they doing that. Karachi Dockyard already builted a F-22P type in their dockyard right?

    They cant even built a 3000 ton ship?

    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.




    5-8X OHP frigates upgraded with Genesis Battleship Management System.
    Alhtough 30 year old, These Hazard Perry frigate with Harppons looks more better option than recent F-22P Ships.


    6X AIP Qing Class subs
    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

    1X Nuclear submarine. [2nd strike nuclear triad]
    4X ZDK-03 AWACS
    10X P-3C Orion HAWKEYE
    36X JF-17 Thunder Naval attack variant.(CM-400AKG)
    Ok Thats Hillarious, Good luck with that.
