    State-owned company Karachi Shipyard & Engineering Works (KSEW) has launched a 17,000-tonne fleet tanker on order for the Pakistan Navy.

    The platform, said to be Pakistan's largest-ever indigenously built ship, was launched on 19 August at the company's facilities at Dockyard Road, Karachi.

    The fleet tanker project is collaboration between Pakistan's Ministry of Defence Production and Turkish technology and systems engineering house Savunma Teknolojileri Mühendislik ve Ticaret (STM). Steel for the tanker was first cut on 27 November 2013, and its keel was laid on 7 March 2014, according to KSEW.

    Specifications provided by the company indicate an overall length of 158.4 m, a maximum width of 22 m and a scantling displacement of over 17,000 tonnes. The platform is powered by two diesel engines driving two variable pitch propellers, and can achieve a top speed of 20 kt.

    KSEW has not given any details on the vessel's cargo capacity but an image of the ship published on the company's website show two replenishment-at-sea (RAS) masts, one each on the port and starboard sides. The vessel also features a helicopter deck, allowing for vertical replenishment operations.

    Pakistan, Turkey to build more warships

    KARACHI - Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif yesterday launched Pakistan Navy Fleet Tanker at Karachi Shipyard & Engineering Works on Friday.

    Speaking as chief guest at the launching ceremony of the 17,000-ton fleet tanker built with the cooperation of Turkey, the prime minister expressed pleasure over the launch of the largest warship prepared in the country by Karachi Shipyard.

    Nawaz said he had the vision of a strong, democratic and economically viable Pakistan, adding the country would not compromise on its strategic interests.

    He said Pakistan had immense power potential and resources for economic development and this must be harnessed effectively for its development, adding the government was committed to consolidating maritime infrastructure along the coast from Karachi to Gwadar.

    He hoped this cooperation would continue in future and more ships would be built in Karachi Shipyard in collaboration with Turkish firms.

    He congratulated the Ministry of Defence Production, Pakistan Navy, STM Turkey and Karachi Shipyard for launching the ship ahead of schedule.
    He avered Pakistan Navy Fleet Tanker would always be remembered as an icon of Pakistan-Turkey friendship.

    He asserted Pakistan and Turkey were time-tested friends, but despite being geographically aside, they were united by faith, common heritage, shared civilisation and commonality of interests.

    He said the joint ventures like the construction of the fleet tanker would further strengthen the two countries’ relations.
    This initiative would open more opportunities for further cooperation between Pakistan and Turkey in the field of indigenous warship construction and other defence sector products.
    Nawaz Sharif said Karachi Shipyard was an exceptional story of success in public sector which should be emulated by other similar organizations.

    Nawaz said he was confident that through continued hard work, better management practices and the government patronage, Karachi Shipyard would achieve many more such laurels in the future.

    He said the successful construction of the fleet tanker would play a vital role in achieving self-reliance in defence production and the government would continue to support the policy of indigenisation in all technological spheres.
    He appreciated the workforce and management of Karachi Shipyard for transforming the shipyard into a profitable and viable organization.
    He announced a bonus of Rs 100 million for its employees.

    The ongoing development programmes of the government, including China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), aim at achieving maximum output in terms of regional trade and transshipment with Gwadar as the focal point, he said.

    Chief of Naval Staff Admiral Muhammad Zakaullah, Under Secretary of Turkey, Prof Dr Ismail Demir, Federal Finance Minister Ishaq Dar, Defence Minister Khawaja Asif, Sindh Governor Dr Ishratul Ebad, Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah, foreign diplomats and civilian as well as military officials attended the launching ceremony.

    The prime minister affirmed the launch of the ship two months ahead of the schedule was a gift to the nation on its 70th Independence Day.

    He said the fleet tanker being built in the collaboration with Turkish shipbuilding firm, M/s Savunma Teknologiler Muhendisilik (STM) under the ambit of the Ministry of Defence Production and Pakistan Navy was a true testament to efforts towards indigenisation and enhanced collaboration with Turkey.

    Later, the prime minister cut the fastening strings and the fleet tanker was moved into the sea with the help of a tugboat at the platform of the shipyard.

    The ship is capable of independently operating at the sea for up to three months.
    The double hull tanker is compliant with latest International Maritime Organisation (IMO) and Marine Pollution (MARPOL) regulations.

    It will provide logistic support to Pakistan Navy at sea through transfer of liquid and dry cargo and is also capable of undertaking combat support operation through embarked helicopters.

    The ship is also equipped with modern medical facilities to support Pakistan Navy fleet units, both during war and disaster relief operations.

    Later, Nawaz Sharif witnessed Pakistan Navy’s biennial war games Shamsheer-e-Bahr-VI.
    Chief of Naval Staff Admiral Zakaullah received him on his arrival.

    PN has inducted 1xATR-72 and 2xScan Eagle UAV systems.

    Scan Eagle acquisition is significant in the sense it provides a maritime UAV capability to the PN for the first time. However, the fleet of just 2 is prone to attrition.

    This is the 3rd ATR, with 2 being upgraded for ASW duty in Germany

    good ,
    but the missiles will need targeting data from helicopters , airborne platforms .
    also will need to operate under air cover or close to the coastline otherwise will end up in smoke.

    using these in a fashion similar to what the indian navy did during 1971 , is next to impossible as they will be picked up by the multi layer surveillance system of the indian navy and airforce including the newly installed coastal surveillance network.

    China on Monday clarified that it had not “donated” two warships to Pakistan, but that the transfer of vessels, apparently for the defence of Gwadar port, was part of a legitimate “military trade” between the two countries.

    “I have learnt that some reports said China has donated these vessels. This is not correct... It is normal military trade cooperation [between] the two countries and complies with the international commitments of the two countries,” said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying at her regular press briefing.

    Joint security

    Pakistani media reports on Monday said China has handed over two ships to Pakistan Navy on Saturday to safeguard the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

    Ms. Hua said: “So I want to clarify that it is not donation, it is military trade cooperation; the Pakistani side bought these two ships from China.”

    The Pakistani daily Dawn had reported that the two ships would be deployed for “joint security” along the CPEC sea route. However, the newspaper also carried a clarification by the Pakistan Maritime Security Agency (PMSA) that the two ships had not been provided exclusively for protecting the Gwadar port.

    “The ships will be employed in all maritime zones of Pakistan to undertake search and rescue operations,” the PMSA said.

    Besides, the vessels were handed over to the agency in Guangzhou, China, and not at Gwadar, it observed.

    The daily reported that China is building two more ships, named Dasht :pound:and Zhob, which will be delivered to the Pakistani Navy soon

    obviously F22P is a 2200 tons class vessel...

    ------------------
    China Coast Guard got some OPV similar to 056 Corvette these years... but they are two R&D group's products although we thought the general design was shared. and the the OPV version is a little bit larger than the 1300 ton class Type 056 and was constructed under Civilian standards...

    CCG OPV and Type 056 export varient- F13B
    123001331.jpg

    -----------
    BTW the 600 ton MPV vessel is also based on a China Coast Guard vessel built in an inland shipyard

    Pmsa-1500 length : 95 m

    F-22p length : 120 m

    So they are different designs.

    However compare it with P18N corvette which is also 95m

    P18N is a 1800 ton class OPV which is based on even older export project: Royal Thai Navy-Pattani class of around 2005 and this class is a 1500 tons vessel.

    [​IMG]

    ---------------------------
    again... this Pakistan 1500 ton class MPV/OPV project is a different one which is more close to the Type 056, but they might be just similar and some essential differences are there.
    BTW, a correction here: the export project to Bangladesh Navy is C13B not F13B
