    PM reveals plans to modernise Navy
    Govt to buy submarine, missile, frigate

    Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina Sunday revealed the government's mega plan for building Bangladesh Navy as a deterrent and three-dimensional force by incorporating submarines, helicopters, missiles, new frigates and other necessary modern equipment and vessels, reports UNB.

    Addressing the officers and sailors at Naval Headquarters, the Prime Minister said soon, two more frigates will be included to Bangladesh Navy fleet.

    Sheikh Hasina said during her recent China visit, she had requested the Chinese government to provide Bangladesh Naval Force with two newly-constructed frigates including helicopters, and the Chinese government gave consent in this regard.

    Besides, naval ship Bangabandhu, decommissioned during the last BNP-Jamaat government on political ground, will be made fully operational again, she said.

    The Prime Minister further disclosed that agreement signing has already been completed to buy two helicopters and missiles, while the process for collecting two offshore petrol vessels from the United Kingdom is at the last stage.

    Moreover, work is also proceeding to collect a Hydrographic Survey Vessel from the UK, and process is ongoing in China to equip two Large Patrol Crafts with missiles, Hasina added.

    I agree.

    Politicians are the main enemy of any defence force.

    China will sell some goodies to Burma in a short time, China has been playing both sides of each other and profiting in the sales and gas deals.

    Bangladesh can have locally built frigates with a much better quality as we're the world's major ship-builder. All we need is jst the technlogy for warship-building. Maybe the US or China would help us with that one.

    I was talking about this

    #post 12.

    When in PLAN service their designation was frigate.
    And in Bangladesh Navy they are replacing frigate and will be designated Frigate.

    Type 053 frigate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    =============

    So, my question is why then he/she mentioned Corvette?

    1. He/she genuinely made a mistake.
    2. I am mistaken.

    3. Or he/she is ashamed that a ship below 2000 tonnes was designated as frigate in PLAN.
    Now that larger ships are available, he/she like many other things in Chinese history, is disowning the fact and calling it a corvette.
