Does the Navy have any plans of buying replacements for the two P-3Cs lost to terrorism?

Considering Pakistan's sea limits have almost doubled, Pakistan Navy's surveillance aircrafts fleet is dwindling. It must act fast and fill up the gap. P3s going to be obsolete soon and Indians are moving ahead with the purchase of P8I. What platform do you think our navy should go for in the near future?

There is no such plan.
P3Cs are not obsolete and will service for the next decade and more.
No replacement aircraft is being considered at this stage.
However, some platforms are being looked into, but this is only at the study stage.

There was initial buzz in the media..that P-3c will be replaced..but it never happened.

This was 2011... Pakistan and US had some serious ideological differences on good terrorist and bad terrorist(especially pakistan support haqqani network).

These two P-3c which were destroyed were part of 7 second hand P-3C..which were upgraded and donated by Americans to Pakistan in 2005.

In total Pakistan has 7 P-3c remaining in service.
3 delivered in 1980s(one crashed).
7 delivered after 2005( 2 destroyed)
