    Or you could put in something like South Africa's Umkhonto (SAHV-3) Mk2 missile: VL, IIRH, LOAL-capable (fire and forget > no need for missile directors, just a 3D radar, which is nice on a relatively small ship like F22P), 15km range. With a 25km ARH-version forthcoming .... cooperation on this with Brazil (from which Pakistan bought ARMs for PAF) ... so who knows, they might like another partner.

    Landbased SAHV-3 replaced Crotales in SAF service.

    I am hopeful that these new deal will include content that are present of the Type54 like VLS SAM and may be VLS AShMs along with more use of Composites, stealth charateristics and other features that will make it more lethal. I think Pakistan should go for 7 of these like building these till 2018, along with five more FACs.

    There ships will add a punch to PNs capabilities. Though bigger ships and additional submarines are required as well.

    I think PN should have a fleet of 15 F-22Ps till 2020 along with 11 Corvettes of 1500 Class that will be multi mission ones along with 21 FACs( 7 of the current type and later 7-7 of the upgraded types).

    we are being defaulted on elecctricity bills for IPPs and you want a navy that would rank top 5 ..if thats the force you want..!
    i think 8-10 frigates will be more than enough along with 6-8 subs ..

    we should focus more on Subs and FAC

    So i guess the OHP acquisition has hit the story waters. Lol, what are we gonna do with just one OHP?

    Tariq's are gonna retire and 8 F22Ps gonna take over. I guess the delivery will be pretty soon.....another 3 years and 4 four ships!!

    Well I found this news from the 2009 archives of China Daily , Very Interesting ...

    Pakistan's navy chief likes China's military hardware
    By Ai Yang (China Daily)
    Updated: 2009-12-22 08:57


    Pakistan ordered the F22P frigates from China in 2005 and the first one began sea trials last year. According an earlier story on the website of the People's Daily, Pakistan ordered four more F22P frigates in 2007, which means there will eventually be eight such warships in the Pakistani Navy.


    Who else thinks this news by Jang group might be a recycle of the old news ? :what:

    If the second batch was signed, then we would have known by now. I think they postponed it, considering OHPs from USA. But now the relations are much different that in 2009, so we might go ahead with 4 more F-22Ps.

    What surprises me most that none other sources are reporting this news ... :undecided:

    Really , if we have decided to go for 4 more F22P , that certainly is a big news ...

    Those ships are very capable and more than enough to suit our current needs and threat scenario ...
