    As far back as I can remember the navy has not had such a procurement bonanza for decades if ever, so heres a list

    4 x MILGEM 2,300 ton corvettes steel for first unit cut 29th Sep 2019 with 54 month delivery time for first unit so around Spring 2024

    4 x Type 054AP 4,000+ ton frigates steel for second unit cut 20th Dec 2018 and all 4 due to be handed over by 2021

    8 x S20 2,800 ton SSK due between 2021-2028

    2 x OPV 2,300 ton from Damen first launched in May 2019 both due to be handed over in 2020

    3,000 Ton Oceanographic vessel launched in Dec 2018 by China due to be handed over soon

    thats 19 units over 55,000 tons of warships and submarines coming between 2019-2028 or 10 years with average of 2 per year

    For missiles

    Second strike Babur III, Coastal defence Zarb and JF17 with anti-ship missiles 2 squadrons

    Good times ahead and plenty to watch

    I am pretty sure MilDen (National Submarine) will have her rightful place somewhere in between...

    Please recheck your info since 54 months for a corvette is too long.

    Swiftclass vessels.
    New Midget subs.

    Timings are correct. It's not wise to call PN MILGEMs as corvettes. Their firepower will surpass several frigates currently operational in South Asia.

    Navy is the most expensive of the three branches in terms of acquisition. So GDP will have a direct correlation of how things workout for PN and military modernization as a whole.

    The two biggest chunks (subs and 54's) are because of CPEC.

    The interesting thing will be balance b/w AF and Navy as post 27 feb has changed the dynamics of future indo pak conflicts. Pak army will have to sacrifice their unnecessary spending spree in future to make pak military more dynamic and pack a more bang for a buck force........

    These classifications are based on weight and size... mostly the weight or displacement. It is not reflective of the firepower so nothing is wrong... in calling it corvette or lightweight frigate. I'm just wondering that we are getting only ONE corvette @2300 tons in 4.5 years while FOUR 54APs @4000+ tones each i.e. 16000+ tonnes in 3 years...

    CM400AKG, CM802 and some new locally produced supersonic cruise missile with longer ranges and more lethal warheads.

    I think PN will go for 2nd Tanker Ship (from turkey) we already build one in Karachi .. And F-22P mid-life upgrade will also happen in these 10 years ..
    Yes bro , PN will surly go for it ,,,, Keep in mind we have to replace Agus-70 and PN total requirement was 14+ SSKs (saw that number here on PDF long ago)
    WE do have Swift steel fast boat(check the latest video the boat people taking as Mp-33 is Swift Fast boat) …. But are we going for Coverts too ??

    What happened to the additional improved F-22Ps, are they still on order or were bypassed for the other ships.

    Only stuff available short notice are 4 destroyer ships China retired which have a similar missile on board as our F22P frigates, 3 more ships will be decommissioned soon by China
    An ideal short term solution

    They have SAMs
    They have anti Submarine focus
    They have Ship to Ship combat capabilities

    Follow the discussion on the existing thread
    https://defence.pk/pdf/threads/4-ch...-purchase-decommissioned-2-months-ago.633768/

    These would be a great pick up for 4 year period till new stuff joins Pakistani Navy

    I would consider buying these Destroyer ships great investment till our Submarines and Type 054 ships arrive in Pakistan Navy

    Not necessarily. There is no official criteria available to classify cetagories of surface vessels. In World, there are some corvettes with more tonnage than frigates. And there are frigates with more displacement than Destroyers. And there are missile boats with more displacement than corvettes. Hence, while classifying surface vessels, a combination of factors are needed to be put into perspective.
    Because Milgum will be heavily upgraded variant thus demanding more R&D and hence more time. Plus, the production capacity of China is far ahead of Turkey.
