Is he saying Contact or Contract .... ???
You see rich white nations koi lift nai karain ge humein. Turks realize this. They have good relations in Africa, Central Asia and others. We need to do same. There is money to be had, market share to be captured in other parts of the world. Pakistanis are busy running after USA and Europe rich white nations.

I guess PN might then be getting 2 Type-056 from China and building the rest of the 2 at home.

PN fleet will look amazing with these Chinese ships and I wish the fleet would look like:
  • 4 Type-56P Corvettes
  • 4 Type-53H / F-22P Light Frigates
  • 4 Type-54AP Frigates
  • 4 Type-55P Destroyers
This is besides what's coming from Turkey.

no chance pakistan gets the 055. they're like a billion+ us dollars each, PLA prices, obviously much higher for everyone else if its even available for export. and it doesnt even make sense for pakistan anyways, it very long ranged but that's not needed.

What about Type-56 Corvettes? When they be coming to PN or will it be built locally?

PN Fleet will be amazing with these:
  • 4 Type-54AP Frigates
  • 4 Type-53AP (F-22P) Light Frigates / Corvettes
  • 4 Type-56AP Light Corvettes / OPV
For the helicopters, I guess PN might be using these:
  • 8-12 Harbin Z-9 (Haitun)
  • 12 Harbin Z-20 may place an order
  • 12 Changhe Z-18 may place an order

056 is certainly a possibility, though small it comes in anti-sub variants which would be very useful for anti-sub work closer to pakistani shores and can defend itself against other ships if needed. overall pakistan, i think, should be aiming mostly for 054 sized frigates, it's a combination of good price, good range, and well armed.

Type:Corvette

But still, I think a batch of 4 Type056 acquisitions might be underway.

I'm sure PN might be evaluating some Destroyers from China and the EU.
