    Since this is not really a purchase order or technology related news may be we should move this to low visited political section of the website.

    I frankly don't even know who this so call politician is/was etc

    Defence news normally comes from official channels

    This is 5 year old story which the politician is just stating now, its like the politicians had chance to visit a page 5 years ago and they suddenly woke from their slumbering sleep and decided to make a comment in Parliment

    If Pakistan leases a chinese SSN, how long would be the lease for?
    Can chinese lease Pakistan an SSBN? Or it is just the role change? From attack to stay and hide?

    PN should go for the lease option in the interim to acquire operational skills of a nuclear sub like india did with charlie class chakra in 1987.

    If Pakistan could lease an SSBN for 5 years from China lets say from 2021 - 2026, Pakistan can develop its first SSBN in next 8 - 10 years from today, while getting operational skills to operate and maintain nuclear sub. In that case Pak dont need to lease an SSN or SSBN now.

    you are good. But I never carefully research the issue of JF-17. But I do know radar, engine, air-fire control system are imported from China/Russia. jets are for self-defense, there is a market over there.
    nuclear submarine is different, there is no market for it. it is strategic weapon, not for sale.
    again, NO offense. good luck for the try.

    Shaheen III was a disappointment and sea variant slbm S3 would be better due to second strike capability would Pak Ideally needs SLBM ICBMS MIRVed long range with plenty of MIRV warheads to decrease the effectiveness of Enemys ABM...

    I never said a nuclear sub can be traded, i said important stuff that we may find difficult to make ourself. USA has already crossed the bar with giving India all it needs to accelerate its weapons program. Not only that but India can have nuclear trade with anyone while remaining out side NSG. They already joined MTCR which gives them access to missile components. India already tested ICBM and not a peep from US or allies. If this is not crossing bar i wonder what is.
    But anyway Pakistan and China already enjoy a level of cooperation where i wouldn't doubt that if a nuclear sub is to be needed it will be there.

    It still does not change the fact that India now has a nuclear sub while they are also making their own with Russian support.

    1) A 10yrs lease would make sense.

    2) My personal opinion is, IF PN decides to lease one today, it could be flying under PN flag in as little as 6 mnths.

    1. Price point of 10 yr will be big, it will be sunk cost. India leased akula ssn for 3 years.
    2. 6 months seem a bit optimistic imo! Can china spare an ssbn? Or ssn. They may not spare ssbn from active inventory. May be ssn. But that you experts will have better info.

    Other imo a very challenging issue will be reliable encrypred communication from the submerged boat to command center. SSBN will be far away anywhere in the world hidden and waiting answers. Firing protocols ! Would they have to be updated for slbm as compared to land based missiles?
