Yes it's really that low. Pakistan has no destroyers only few frigates and Corvettes .Is it really 50000 tonnes? Really? Our Aircraft carrier alone has 45000 tonnes and INS Vikrant this year will add 42000 tonnes.
But our shipbuilding speed is very poor, it took 10 Years to construct an Aircraft carrier like seriously, others take half of tha time.
Regarding aircraft carriers this was our first domestic build carrier timeline is decent if you take into all the infrastructure we build along for this project.
Next Carrier will come faster as now infrastructure is already there. Another reason for delay was in supply of russian instruments now as we build more systems indigenously that should also stop.
