week Pakistan Navy inducted Last of its Azmat class missile boat named Haibet FAC

Pakistan Navy has integrated C 802 anti ship cruise missile and Harbah ship to surface missile system they are well equiped

Main task is to detect and destroy indian ships from far away due to its missile and radar range

But they lack any ASW capability easy prey for indian submarines and these FAC are not been integrated with any sonar to track subs at least what is on paper

What do you indians think are they capable enough to pack a punch.

Or they are under powered they are not meant for blue water capability

Noble thought but achievable only if Azmat is able to fire the shot without getting detected by the enemy first. Because if detected and shot at, Azmat has no air defense against incoming anti-ship missiles. It would be a Sitting Azmat.

It could still be a threat for our larger ships since these vessels have a very small RCS and can get within a certain perimeter of our Warships before firing their AShMs
Lager ships usually have good AD too, I would think these would be a bigger threat to things like coast guard vessels, smaller frigates etc. Or in case we went for naval bombing of coastal areas (not sure why we would, but anyway).

It packs quite a lot of firepower relative to its size. Although I think it needs a Short range SAM.

What I am surprised about is why Pakistan is stopping integration of Harbah AShM to more ships?

Like Moskva ?
IN use CBG for offensive before coastal assault, with jets and long range brahmos. PN uses subs.
Only barak 8 capable of handling such threats and rest vulnerable to those multiple missiles. IN only or major issue comes from PN aip subs.

BD also operates a similar class of boats originally desgined in 1990 china (please note, china of 1990 isnt the china of today).
congratulations on getting a ship similar to BD - atleast catching up there

That was done through aide by USA while Russian ship was just floating around with its AD not active.

About J-10 congrats you finally have a fighter jet after F-16s but ask PAF what will they chose if given an option and they will outright ask for F-16s.

Though I agree quantity does have a quality of its own.

PAF still presist over F 16 these modified J 10 C model with AESA and PL 15 they are more deadly than even block 70 yes oaf still wants F 16 because we still have them in active service so we want to maintain its number rather than completely decommission them outright and make big hole in our airforce to fill will be hard
