    Six frigates, four cruisers and an aircraft carrier are set to be decommissioned during fiscal 2013, according to a Navy message released Monday.

    NAVADMIN 087/12, released by Deputy Chief of Naval Operations Vice Adm. John Blake, includes deactivation dates and the fates of the ships. The six frigates will be sold to foreign militaries, while the four cruisers will be dismantled.

    Enterprise, the worldÂ’s first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier and the oldest active-duty warship in the fleet, will move to a shipyard March 15, 2013. There, it will await a date for decommissioning.

    Yeah! It was a much better idea for PN to tell GoP(in 2000) that they want infrastructure like: 3 Mega Shipyards in GAWADAR, Ormara Naval Base with 3 Mega Shipyards along with the 3 ship yard in Karachi. Beside that the GoP will allocate money for them to do JV on SSKs, SSBNs, Frigates, Corvettes, FACs, Patrol Boats and Hover Crafts which they can produce in Pakistan.
