    Pakistan Navy ATR72 at Mönchengladbach (Germany)

    On 27 June 2020, the third Pakistan Bharia (Pakistan Navy) ATR72-212A, serial 77 and msn 808, arrived at Mönchengladbach for conversion into a "Sea Eagle". The conversion process will be done by Rheinland Air Service (RAS).

    The ATR72, operated by 29(ASW/EW/IW) Squadron and based at Sharea Faisal (PNS Mehran/Karachi), arrived with callsign PN77 on a 5 hour flight direct from Izmir-Adana Menderes.

    In 2016, Rheinland Air Service was awarded a contract to convert two ATR72s (serials 78 and 79) for anti-submarine warfare (ASW).

    yaap ......

    watch the video [shared on this forum as well many times] of Company representative in some Airshow before the handing over of 1st ATR MPA to PN clearly mentioned that company was expecting 1 or 2 more orders for the same conversion package, PN is sending one ATR at a time for conversion ..... but overall it was known that PN is expected to have at least 3 (or may be 4) ATR MPAs ....

    Assuming it’s the jet LRMPA being reported on and off. Can you advise what kind of timeline we are talking about? months, couple of years?
