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.

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.

China sold Bangladesh 2 corvettes (PLAN 535 and 536) decommissioned in April 2013


Now serving in BN as F15 and F17 after overhaul




and China to Sell Bangladesh 2 Submarines | The Diplomat
Beijing will sell Dhaka two Ming-class submarines for $203.3 million.

Ming-class submarines (Type 035) are diesel-electric powered submarines based off of the Romeo-class submarines that the Soviet Union built in the 1950s. The Ming-class submarines, however, feature a number of improvements over the obsolete Soviet models. The specific variant that Bangladesh is purchasing, Type 035G, is the most recent and last Ming-class submarine. China built six of them between 1997 and 2001, according to Global Security.

Google tells me Castle-class are corvettes.
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.

Shipbuilding Tribune - Bangladesh: Khulna Shipyard Awarded to Build Five Patrol Ships for Bangladesh Navy

First Indigenous Warship For Bangladesh Navy: Armed Forces International News

Khulna Shipyard in Bangladesh has been awarded a contract to construct five modern patrol ships worth Tk2.80bn ($40m) for the Bangladesh Navy, according to Anisur Rahman Molla, the company's deputy general manager.

The ships will be 50m long and 7m wide and will have an optimum speed of 20-25mph.

Each ship will be equipped with two kinds of guns to carry out operational activities.

The machinery and equipment for the construction of the ships have been imported from the UK, according to The Financial Express.

Work will officially begin on 5 March 2011 and is expected to be completed by December 2013.
It's also got a 20mph cruise speed and it was constructed through a development programme overseen and supported by the China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation (CSIC) - one of the two dominant Chinese ship-manufacturing organisations

Four military deals signed with China

Bangladesh and China yesterday signed four treaties to enhance military cooperation between the armed forces of the two countries.

Under the treaties, China's armed forces will provide military assistance to the Bangladesh armed forces free of cost.

The assistance includes providing training and logistic support to the armed forces and setting up a language laboratory at the Bangladesh University of Professionals (BUP).
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina sought Chinese cooperation in Bangladesh's bid to become a developed and prosperous nation by 2041.

General Xu, who called on the premier at Gono Bhaban, assured her that the Chinese government would provide support to Bangladesh's steps to modernise its armed forces.

He also highly appreciated Bangladesh's "one China policy", PM's special assistant Mahbubul Hoque Shakil told reporters.

Hasina hoped that the construction of the Trans-Asian highway through China, Myanmar and Bangladesh would be completed soon. The highway will boost trade between Bangladesh and China, she said.
