    In Aug 2010 first of the eight FFG will be handed over to PN and will go through intensive refurbishments with increased capabilities such as retaining of MK13 launcher that will give the frigate the capability to use missiles again.
    The foreigner operators of FFGs such as Australia and Turkey under a nearly billion dollars program are getting their frigates upgraded that will give them parity with most of the modern frigates today.

    I do not want to go into detail about FFG program but the armament that will be acquired for it such as SM-2.

    In short words SM-2 will give PN the capability to engage air threats such as sub-super sonic AShM CM, aircraft, helicopters and a secondary capability to engage surface targets such as corvettes and Frigates.
    4 or 5 of these hurled towards a enemy's frigate at speed mach 3.5 fallowed by a Harpoon will have a devastating effect!

    Did you only read the title?

    Read the descriptions! It has a primary role against air threats such as Brahmos and secondary role against surface targets.

    First of all the frigates you are getting are for $70 million per frigate. They are being sold to you as a goodwill gesture and because they are being retired from service.

    The frigates will be stripped off all the missiles and weapon systems. Only the frigate will be sold to you, not the weapons. You will install your own weapons on it.
    There is no indication that SM-2 will be sold to you or that Pak is interested in SM2.

    Another troller from bharatraksak with no sense what so ever.

    SM-2 block IIIA/B cleared IOC in 1998 and is used by more powerful navy USA with Ticonderoga class cruiser and Arleigh Burke class.

    how this missile can matchup with brahmos?

    this missile got max. range <=166.7km. while brahmos got 290km range.

    do you think that BrahMos will give you chance to fire the missile. or in otherwords, to come close to 160km.

    Almost every warship of IN is/will be equipped with Brahmos. So, technicall, you need missile with range of atleast 300km.

    First of all you know the brain that mighty god gave you kindly use it for once! Or do some research first for a change will you.

    Secondly. The Frigates are for free and if we are to buy the frigate would cost any nation about a 100 million dollars. The refurbishment cost is 78 million dollars which will be done according to PN requirements.
    Go to this link and educate yourself.

    You have clearly proved that you lack knowledge of the subject.
    Not bothering replying to this low quality post.

    I cant find anything other than a frigate commissioned in 1979 is transferred to PN. Does the missiles comes for free or is it standard equipment?:what::what:

    The armament package will be announced soon by the PN officials. SM-2 is a prime candidate for FFG up gradation programs.
