Does ada class corvettes contains any CIWS or any other missile defense system??
If you're asking CIWS, ADA class may not have it, larger Turkish frigates and destroyers carry US Phalanx Mk.15 CIWS.

ASELSAN has its own CIWS though (Gokdeniz) - I don't know if that will be fitted to the ADA classes for Pakistan. If not. then fitment of Chinese CIWS (Type 730 or 1130 is possible). These Chinese CIWS are gatling gun type while Gokdeniz is a heavier caliber rapid cannon with airburst rounds providing very effective blanket of ammunition for incoming missiles.

Some discussion was done in 2018 by brother @MMM-E, maybe he can kindly confirm your query.



AW-159 wildcat could be considered.
Bhai AW159 program is halted as far as I know. They could revive it but not sure.

Pakistani Ada Class (Babur) will have GOKDENIZ as far as we know. It’s over 800 tons Heavier and much longer than a normal Ada class.

PN has 12 Phalanx Block 1B systems. They’re currently being used on the PN tankers as well as the Tabuk and Yarmuk.
If PN can re-use them then good on them.

I wonder if you can get these suckers on the used weapons market and refurbish them (and if they'd be worth it after the fact). Seems like a lot of the radar electronics and programming involved would be proprietary and re-calibrating them would be a bit tough. Turkish Navy has these things all over their larger boats.

All 12 systems will remain in use, Block 1B is currently the most modern version of Phalanx, still the mainstay CIWS of the US navy as well, So it’s definitely got a lot of life left in it. They will likely end up on any ship that doesn’t get GOKDENIZ or AK1130. Currently at least 5 are known to be in Use on Different PN ships +2 on the Tariq class that will also be reused.

As for finding them in the black market, maybe, many of them have been made, but I assume US is careful with them to not let them fall into the wrong hands.
