First Chinese Type 054A/P guided missile frigate for Pakistan to be delivered this summer
According to a Tweet released by Loongnaval, China will deliver this summer the first Type 054A/P Jiangkai II-class frigate to the Navy of Pakistan. According to news published in June 2018, Pakistan has signed an agreement for the purchase of two more Type 054A Jiangkai II-class guided missile frigates with Chinese shipbuilder China Shipbuilding Trading Co Ltd. (CSTC). In 2017, Pakistan had already signed a contract with China for the purchase of two Type 54A.

In total, the Pakistani Navy will receive four Type 54A frigates from China; The first Type 054A/P for Pakistan was launched on August 22, 2020. The second one was launched on January 29, 2021. On November 1, 2019, China’s Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding held a steel cutting ceremony for the Pakistan Navy’s third and fourth Type 054A/P frigates.

The Type 054A/P is an export and improved version of the Chinese-made Type 054 multi-role frigate which entered service with the Chinese Navy in 2007. It is a development of the Type 054 frigate, using the same hull but with improved sensors and weapons. A total of 26 Type 54 frigates are in service with the Chinese Navy.

The Type 054A Jiangkai II-class is a guided missile frigate that has anti-surface capabilities and can be used to conduct anti-warfare and anti-submarine warfare operations. The construction of the hull is based on stealth technology featuring sloped sides and reduced superstructure for minimizing the radar cross-section.

The Type 054A has a length of 134.1 m, a beam of 16m, and a loaded displacement of 4,053 tones. The ship has a crew of 165 people. She is powered by Combined diesel and diesel (CODAD) propulsion system that includes four SEMT Pielstick (now MAN Diesel) 16 PA6V-280 STC diesel engines, each developing 5,700 kW (7,600 hp). The frigate can reach a top speed of 27 knots (50 km/) with a maximum cruising range of 8,025 nautical miles (14,682 km).

The Type 054A is equipped with Type 344 multifunctional fire control radar, four Type 345 fire-control radars used to guide the HQ-7 short-range surface-to-air missile, MR-36A surface search radar and two Racal RM-1290 navigation radars, operating in I-band. The ship is also equipped with one MGK-335 medium-frequency active/passive sonar system, a H/SJG-206 towed array sonar, a ZKJ-4B/6 (developed from Thomson-CSF TAVITAC) combat data system, an HN-900 Datalink, SNTI-240 SATCOM communication system, and an AKD5000S Ku band SATCOM.

The Type 054A is armed with 32-cell VLS (Vertical Launching System) able to launch HQ-16 SAM surface-to-air missile, Yu-8 anti-submarine rocket launcher, eight C-803 anti-ship / land-attack cruise missiles, one PJ26 76 mm dual-purpose naval gun, two Type 730 7-barrel 30 mm CIWS guns or Type 1130, six 324mm Yu-7 ASW torpedo launchers, twelve Type 87 240mm anti-submarine rocket launcher (36 rockets carried) and two Type 726-4 18-tube decoy rocket launchers.

and in this May


the sea trial has begun for a while, and the harbor and basin trial ended earlier...

normally a new 054A will be handed over to the navy within a year after the launch, the fastest record is around 9 months...this is an export project with new and different sub systems, so it would take a little more time.

------------
the another two 054APs will be launched soon. they are under construction in this huge drydock along with the next batch of 054A (improved )for PLAN...but these two might be launched earlier. it was said that all four vessels should be handed over by the end of 2022.
