Important addition to what outgoing Chief said is Helicopter, Corvettes, which was still not finalized, but surprise was shallow-water attack submarines. the word attack most likely means its not the midget ones. I believe PN is looking for a west as China still has no such subs on offer.

Also if you look at PN comprehensive procurement plans it almost covers everything from small gun boat missile craft corvettes frigates, upgrades to existing submarine larger Chinese submarine, midgets subs, and now coastal shallow water attack subs. On other hand you are getting turboprop and jet aircraft and helicopter.

So what's left is destroyer this leads to believe that Jinnah class may actually be a destroyer.

They might go for both. PN can operate both from different ships.
AW159 being smaller than Z20 csn be operated from Milgem and daman ships while Z20 can be operated from Type 54. While some can be operated from land for shallow water options.

that Drone is a MALE, it wont be CH-4.....It may be that stealth drone from China to undercut IN's purchase of American stealth drone.

That Chinese Stealth drone is called CH6 or something.

It's CH 4. Few of CH-4 will arrive from China and then soon our own MALE will be ready.

Shallow Water Attack subs are midget subs or variants of midget subs. For example:

"MG 110 class midget submarine: Developed by Italian shipbuilder Cosmos as a successor of earlier S.X.756 midget submarine in South Korean service. MG 110 is a slightly enlarged version of S.X.756 with length increased to 27.28 m, diameter increased to 2.3 m, and displacement increased to 102/110 t (surfaced/submerged). Range is 1200 nm surfaced, and the submerged range remain the same. Payload and crew are also identical to that of its predecessor S.X.756 midget submarine." (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cosmos-class_submarine)

"MG 120: MG 120 Shallow water attack submarine (SWATS) is a development of MG 110 in Pakistani service with the displacement is increased to 130 t submerged, range is 1600 nmi @ 7 kn surfaced, 60 nmi @ 4.5 kn submerged, and the number of divers carried is drastically increased to 15." (https://www.thefreelibrary.com/By+s...rces+tend+to+arrive+in+hostile...-a0140709845)

The PN has looked at the Merlins. Strong contender imo. Jinnah is a frigate.

Dude it's CH 4. Yes they are ambitious but for now CH 4 are on order. No other UAV is on order. It's CH 4 which is coming.

Dude I don't like CH 4 myself. I would have love to see CH 5. But sorry right now CH 4 is the one which is coming but it may come in limited numbers and then we may opt for bigger Drone. Either local or foreign.
