#PNS #TABUK TO BE COMMISSIONED THIS MONTH
The second ship of the Yarmook-Class of 2300-tonne multirole Corvettes, PNS Tabuk will be commissioned into the Pakistan Navy this month. The ships will complement the larger, major warships of the Pakistan Navy.
The ship is built jointly by #Romania and #Pakistan, with DAMEN shipyards building the hull and superstructure and KS&EW #Karachi fitting out the warship and integrating weapons capabilities.
The warships are littoral multipurpose corvettes and will be fitted with with a remote weapon station for a main naval cannon, two quad-cell cruise missile launchers (either C-802A AShCM or Harbah dual-use AShCM/LACM), an E/O CIWS. Another mission module will be kept unused for humanitarian and disaster relief (HADR) search-and-rescue (SAR), and other missions.
But this space can also be used for torpedo launchers, in case of conflict. The corvettes also feature advanced LPI radars, a modern EW suit, CMS, ELINT/ESM and a close range acoustic weapon. The corvette also has a helicopter deck and hangar, as well as two RHIBs.
Here is a video from PNS Yarmook’s commissioning earlier this year.

The OPVS should have some sort of SAMS n them if PN is looking to use them effectively in wart time. Perhaps time to provide Air defense cover by another ship has passed with precision ASHMs there should be some sort of SAM system along with CIWS. The OPVs are neither so stealthy nor so small to be deducted at close ranges.
