I am aware of general weapon/sensor configuration but don't know the exact type.
Guns will likely be sourced from Turkey, including majority of sensors.

Thing to ponder is (I) the type of AShMs, (II) ASW capability, and (III) UAV (rotary wing)
Armament on Yarmook Class.
  • 2 × triple STWS-1 torpedo launchers (for Mk 46 LWTs)
  • 2 × 4-cell Mk 141 launchers (for Harpoon SSMs) or 1 × 6-cell LY-60N SAM launcher
  • Luna UAVs acquired from Germany are already deployed on board.
AShM, SAM and ASW launchers were recovered from decommissioned Tariq Class.
Main gun will be different from previous ones.

All modules can be removed in case if not required as per mission and can be replaced providing flexibility on the platform.

When PN is going to place a follow-up order of another 2 or 4 of these ships?

Also, heard about the negotiation between PN and Romanian Shipyard of a possible acquisition of Some 2 Corvettes from the same Ship Yard.

If anyone knows, please elaborate on both topics.

Long Live Pakistan. :pakistan:

That is extremely good solution and cost effective they have just recovered all the weapons from Tariq class and plan to place it on Yarmouk class. a commercial design OPV with frigate punch..

Very very cost effective although i do not think that 6-cell LY-60N SAM launcher would be placed on them.

Somebody has done an honest to God and sincere effort to modernised PN.

It seems there is no space for anti air missiles however, ssm could be transferred as well as phlanx cows system. Not sure where to place torpedo tubes ?

A good helicopter like seaking will just do it

Pakistan navy just needs to keep shipping lanes open and to counter blockade which it will be able to with the ships we have .just 3 or 4 submarines out on the offensive for pakistan will keep indian navy second guessing.pakistan navy needs 4 type 55 destroyers to take the attack to india .
