Older Type 54 eh , hmmm if the price is right I guess we could get it
Yup if we can outfit those with new sensors and missiles then they should be serviceable. For a country with credible threats no worse than Myanmar at this time, it makes sense for volume assets. We need money for other infra.

For frontline assets we need better of course, like the Istanbul class.

@Michael Corleone did PLA Navy offer older 054's to us, do we know?

Curious to see If MTCR will be an issue considering both missiles are around or above the 300 km limit.
Nobody really sells anti ship missiles with 300+km range.

Atmaca warhead is 250kg
Otomat MK2E is around 200kg supposedly

Anti ship market is very crowded there is US, France, Italy, Sweden, China, Russia, Turkey, Ukraine, India and soon the UAE.

if we got stuff from china , they can give us things with >300km range , since they are not signatories to MTCR and don't give a damn about sanctions. problem is our friend is going to throw a hissy fit if we get anything from China , not to mention a long ranged AShm
China does abide by MTCR informally my friend.

From what I heard we did toy with the idea of snagging two type 054 along with the last two type 053 h3
I don’t think we’re going to buy any though as the first ships of the class had quality control issues in the beginning of their career

Bangladesh’s flirtation with Turkey to buy six warships may boomerang

Bangladesh’s flirtation with Turkey to buy six warships may boomerang(Credit: Reuters)

Bangladesh’s reported flirtation with Turkey to buy new warships may come at a considerable political cost, and could boomerang.
Dhaka is apparently discussing with Turkey the import of six Istanbul class guided missile frigates, Dhaka Tribune quoting website defseca.com. Frigates are warships that can play multiple roles but usually specialise in hunting submarines. The Turkish frigates can also perform anti-air as well as anti-surface warfare missions.

According to defseca.com , the Turkish Company STM is the frontrunner for the contract , beating competition from China, Netherlands and Italy.
Though the deal, if it comes through, will be part of a commercial transaction, analysts say that it can impose a considerable political cost on Bangladesh. Any critical military reliance on Turkey can be leveraged for political influence. The danger is particularly acute, as a resurgent Turkey under the Presidency of Recep Tayyip Erdogan is trying to gain an Islamist foothold in South and Central Asia, with Pakistan as the bridgehead. It is therefore likely that a deep military relationship can be used by Ankara to deepen its influence in Bangladesh in the Bay of Bengal zone.

India, Bangladesh’s special friend, is also unlikely to support strong political bonds between Dhaka and Ankara, which is a vocal advocate and Pakistan’s buddy in undermining India’s influence in Jammu and Kashmir. Any triangulation of Bangladesh, Pakistan and Turkey at New Delhi’s doorstep with overhang of China in the backdrop is therefore is unlikely to go down well in India
Developed under the MILGEM Turkish warship program, the Istanbul-class is a new generation of frigates.
The Turkish frigates can reach a 29 knots (54 km/h) maximum speed, with a maximum cruising range of 5,700 nautical miles.
The Istanbul-class frigate can operate for 15 days without refuelling, Dhaka Tribune reported.

Bangladesh Navy currently has two submarines, 115 surface ships, including smaller crafts and boats, including five guided missile frigates, two patrol frigates, six guided missile corvettes, among others, the daily said.

flirtation
Flirtation ? couldn't have found a better word ? come on. Journalistic standards in india are pretty low, they saw some ARMA-3 gameplay footage posted by a parody account on twitter and claimed that PAF A-10 (only US operates them) were operating in Pantshir. They also posted video of USAF F-15 doing the mach loop over Wales as PAF jets attacking Panthsir. This was done by respected mainstream media btw.

It is therefore likely that a deep military relationship can be used by Ankara to deepen its influence in Bangladesh in the Bay of Bengal zone.
And , how is that a bad thing for us ?

Look at Gobar Media attitude.

They can have nuclear subs, but we can't have conventional subs.

They can have destroyers but we can't have any frigates, or perish the thought, build some ourselves.

Just Amazing.....

In any case, the one in the image is not an Istanbul class vessel. It belongs to the Barbaros class.

Yes it might "boomerang": Turkey might build two and ask us to build the rest locally. How would our shipyards recover from such a debacle. 😥

Maybe open some barrages upstream. :D But we can't lose that huge $8 billion worth of exports (2% of our merchandise exports, 1.3% of our total exports), eh?

Anyway, it's a pointless opinion piece from an obscure source. First Istanbul class frigate will only join service in 2023. The Bangladeshi yard which is to build these vessels isn't modernized yet & no orders have been placed yet for the frigate or the modernization. The program has still a long way to go before keel laying.
