yes so basically within 6 months we have seen the start of 3 out of the 4 warships

this is amazing speed as Turkey took 15 years to build 4 x Ada Class

the worry was this was going to also be a slow and painful process

but looks like Turkey has mastered this art now

I predict before June 2021 which is exactly 1 year since the 1st started we will have all 4 under construction

not to mention that the 4 x Type 054A/P from China are also progressing at break neck speed

its good the Type 054A/P will all be built in China as this would have seriously slowed down if Karachi tried to build them

guys hold on this ride is going to be great

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Saturday launched the welding of the third ship to be constructed for Pakistan Navy under the Milgem project.
Ambassador of Pakistan in Turkey Mohammad Syrus Sajjad Qazi also accompanied Erdogan at the groundbreaking of the third out of a total of four Milgem Ada-class corvette for Pakistan Navy in Istanbul.

Speaker of the Turkish Grand National Assembly Mustafa Sentop, Minister of National Defence of Turkey Hulusi Akar, Chief of Turkish General Staff General Yasar Guler, Commander of Turkish Naval Forces Admiral Adnan Ozbal, and other dignitaries attended the ceremony that also marked the launching of I-class Turkish Navy 'Istanbul' frigate.
Speaking at the ceremony, President Erdogan said Pakistan is "our brotherly country with whom Turkey enjoys excellent relations".
He underscored that the defence collaboration for the construction of Milgem class warships was another milestone in Turkey-Pakistan defence ties.

President Erdogan said both Pakistan and Turkey were living in difficult geographical regions and both countries were facing similar challenges. He affirmed that Turkey would continue to support friendly and allied countries in the defence field.
Referring to his visit to Pakistan last year, President Erdogan said the two countries signed a Strategic Economic Framework that would provide the necessary institutional framework to further enhance bilateral ties.
All Turkish dignitaries who spoke at the ceremony hailed the Pakistan-Turkish brotherly relations and reiterated Turkey's support to Pakistan on core issues of its national interest.
The contract for four Milgem class corvettes for Pakistan Navy with concurrent Transfer of Technology (ToT) was signed with ASFAT Inc, a Turkish state-owned Defence contractor firm in 2018.
According to the plan, two corvettes will be built in Turkey and the other two will be built in Pakistan, at the Karachi Shipyard and Engineering Works (KSEW) — Pakistan Navy's specialised shipbuilding division — that also involves technology transfer.
Milgem vessels are 99 metres long with a displacement capacity of 2,400 tonnes and can move at a speed of 29 nautical miles.
These anti-submarine combat frigates, which can be hidden from the radar, will further enhance the defence capability of the Pakistan Navy.

Alhamdulillah.... The project is proceeding at good pace.... I believe the milgem project must fully complete by 2025 and act as keystone for kick-starting the construction of jinnah class project

Jinnah class is something else and bigger ships, in the class of the 054A or larger. They may use the Milgem as a base design point.
So we have to wait to find the name of this extended ada class for PN. just wondering why pn went for redesign ada class instead of going for I CLASS Frigate direct. That would have a better investment .. ?

Jinnah Class would be a hybrid of I-Class and Ada Class, but PN will have their own inputs which they learned from F-22's and Type 54's. Plus the Jinnah class will see an extended order from PN after this order ends.

Question is that under the new CNS, will he still go for the Surface Fleet Route or diverge future undecided platforms to be Sub-Surface.

I would say the Jinnah class may or may not be, but then again it's just my opinion without any inside knowledge.

PS: "Sorry, I didn't mean to write a thesis on this, I just couldn't pen it all down in Cliff Notes."
