    Contract for acquisition of 2 x warships for Pakistan Navy was signed with M/s China Shipbuilding Trading Company Ltd (CSTC), at Ministry of Defence Production, Rawalpindi. Deputy Chief of Naval Staff (Operations), Rear Admiral Faisal Rasul Lodhi was also present on the occasion.

    With the conclusion of this contract, Pakistan Navy will have a total of 4 x Type 054 A ships in its Fleet by 2021. The induction of these Ships will substantially enhance Pakistan navy’s war fighting capabilities while effectively contributing towards Maritime Security Operations in the region.

    Type-054 A is an extremely potent and state of the art warship equipped with latest weapons including long range missiles and Hi-tech sensors, capable to undertake operations in all domains of naval warfare. The acquisition of these modern ships is certainly a value addition in Pakistan Navy which is an ardent defenders of National Maritime Interests of Pakistan.

    The ceremony was attended by high ranking officials and dignitaries from China, Pakistan Navy and Government authorities.

    Until we fit VLS for Cruise Missiles in these ships sorry I am not happy. Even if they add 8 VLS for a cruise missile which has range of 1500 KM and it can hit targets like Benglaru and Chennai and Hyderabad and other major cities in India I would be happy

    The ship carries Hq-16s.

    Targets in Chennai, Kokata, West Bangal are absolute crucial for Pakistan navy and airforce.

    just shame that every time navy suffers really bad from usa-pak relationships
    last time it cost 5 OHP class destroyers now 2-4 Swift ships
    such a shame

    You mean in those VLS fitted at front

    I don't know about being crucial or not, but these cities being in our Naval Ships range would send a message which would bring Indian leadership to its senses

    There was no contract signing for OHP Class Janab
