Share on FacebookShare on Twitter


In a series of posts on Twitter on 5 July, Minister of National Defence of the Republic of Turkey Nurettin Canikli said that the has Turkey won a tender to build 4 corvettes for Pakistan Navy.

According to the statement, this contract is the largest such award so far received by Turkey defence industry.

“This will be the largest single export in the history of Turkish defense industry,” said Nurettin Canikli.




The agreement is a milestone for Turkish defense industry and has proven its adequacy, the minister noted.

Turkey’s STM signed a letter of intent in May 2017 to manufacture four Ada class MILGEM corvettes for Pakistan, and the contract was signed in November. Two of the ships will be manufacturered at Karachi Shipyard and two others in Istanbul, Canikli said.

STM CEO Davut Yilma said in May 2017 that the cost will be $250 million per ship.

Thats more than 1 billion $ minimum for total cost.....
That's minimum 120 billion PKR budget...
Pakistan Navy's annual budget is usually 10% of total defence budget, for 2018 it is roughly 100 billion PKR.


I sure hope paki navy buys these corvettes as early as possible....

They are merely corvettes to cover Type-054's since PN knows the Type-054 are chinese maal and will not achieve anything. The turkish corvette will also come with chinese maal. US will not allow any of their missiles.
The american corvettes are just patrol boats. In 10 years ICG will have more displacement and aircrafts than PN.

It is we who entered Doklam which is a Bhutanese territory which China says is its own. So according to your chinese masters it is the Indian army which entered chinese territory, and they couldnt stop us from staying.

I assume the payments will be spread over many years. It is a forgone conclusion that bankrupt porkis can't afford it with a looming IMF bailout in the works.

Two vessels will be constructed in Turkey while two in Pakistan. Honestly, the deliveries are bit late. (deliveries will complete by 2024.)
