Does more F22 P like frigates in the current scenario will help PN to overcome the situation that's arising in Arabian Sea, Persian Gulf, and especially in the Indian Ocean near to Pakistan?

Like, 4 F22P aren't enough, and getting new corvettes and aircraft's will take 4 to 5 years minimum. So, additional F22P like vessels can help them to boost defense in our waters. And even in areas like the red sea if deployed.

If by "F-22P-like" you mean build more F-22Ps, then it'll still take 4-5 years minimum. But if you mean trying to buy China's old Type 053H3, then the PN could look into that, yes.

I guess Chinese already has 8 of the same type and that all 8 can easily be upgraded with the latest Weapons and systems by China within 2 to 3 years time. Moreover, PN could also later upgraded it's own F22P on the similar latest standards as well. And these ships can prove worthy for the next 10 to 12 years.

I guess PN needs such ships to patrol in these 3 regions:

1. Arabian Sea.
2. Persian Gulf.
3. Indian Ocean region.

For all these 3 group of 4 F22P class would be good enough with 1 tanker support ship in this battle group.

Is PN scraping all 6 Type-21s into metal? If yes, then its a wise decision to scrap all old stuff and get some new ones that are up to the mark.

How does pn planning to soldier on type21 and ffg7
They dont plan on keeping type 21. They will be retired (cant remember if by MILGEM or Type 054A). Most likely will be stripped of usable stuff like phalanx and either scrapped or scuttled via missile test. As for FFG-7 it is being used as a training ship from my understanding.
