The PN is spreading the costs out over the long-run by only buying the jets they have cash for. So it'll be like 1 now, 2 later, 2 after that, and so on.

'Sea Sultan' is an interesting name, but I was expecting 'Mako' or 'Manta'...
Come on bruh...leave the Mako or Manta a side. Please, come to the main point and enlighten us whether PN has made a good choice or not ?

In theory, yes, it made a good choice. But we'll need to wait and see what the final product looks like to see how much of a good choice it is. It's not clear whether the modifications on the aircraft are extensive enough to make it a potent design. I'm cautiously optimistic that it's going to pretty good (but change the name plz).

So the new trend is to carry torpedos Internally with launching system like sonobuoys

Major reason Italians won sea sultan Contract because of their launching system

on the contrary
Leonardo was given a contract by a unkown customer to develop a rotating internal weapons bay for a MPA.
How many countries are making new MPAs > France , Italy & Pakistan ,
The french obviously wont give a contract to leonardo , the Italians have already choosen C-27 for which they will have 6 external hard points as there is no space for a rotating bay inside so probably there is a high Chance the Sea Sultan will feature external hardpoints for AShM and internal bay for Torpedos

If true this will be one of the most heavily armed MPAs out there
