Well we do have several native heroes both pre islamic and muslim.. from Porus to Mir Noorani .. from Hosh Mohammad to lalalak Jan ...
P.S: Yarmook is a nice name no doubt.
in general public no one would criticise even if we chose local names, but the issue is our political clas, for example name anything after Housh Muhammad Sheedi you would see Sindh Nationalist will start jumping over it as they will see it as stealing of their Nationalist Hero by Punjab .... issue is most of local heros are adopted by subnationlist elements .... you one thing after any one of them sub-nationalist elements of other ethnicity would start negative politics over it.

If you name something after the name of Military personals of any of the 3 services you would see so called Liberal and Democrats will start negative propaganda that Military services don't recognize services of 'Civilian and Democrats' of Pakistan ..... If you name anything after the civilians then mark my word Politician would make sure only Bhutto, Benazir, or someone from Shareef Family, get the honor ..... so its better to stick with current system of nomenclature

-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=--=-=-

On topic how they have inducted it in PN service without the installation and integration of any radar or weapon system .... ???

@Rashid Mahmood shaib any idea ....

PN has enough experience of installation and integration of Weapons & Sensors.
We will do it ourselves.

This was the contract.

I know but I was expecting it to first get Radar and weapon integration done in Pakistan before induction into active service with PN ....

impressive Romanian design ... Its good to see Pakistan armed force policy of diversification of technology. In Navy, Pakistan adopt, German,American,Turkish,Chinese and now Romanian technology ..


He mean to say, why not named something from Pakistan. PNS Karachi , PNS Punjab, PNS Sher Khan , PNS Shabbir Shareef etc etc ...
Dutch Design. Damen is a Dutch company. They bought a shipyard in Romania. Dutch are one of the best small/medium size vessel designers.

Naming naval ships follow a methodology depending on the class of ships. The type of names you suggest have been used for example PNS Larkana etc.

Commissioning a ship is a ceremonial event to bring it on PNs account.
The W&S will be installed now.
Till then it will not take part in any active deployments.

Sir, should we expect the second pair after PNS Yarmook and PNS Tabuk?
No, I guess not.

We have 8 ships in line other than that.
54s & Milgems.


New Warships are a moral booster for everyone serving Pakistan.

We should go for Type 052Ds now


Should had gone for Smart MK-S 3D Search Radar
Roles of these 2 ships are different from 4 Type 054A/Ps , 4 Milgems and even 4 F22Ps . These will be for RMSP , Coastal security and defense , foreign visits , Policing , intelligence gathering roles , Only wartime deployments against India close to Pakistan e.t.c e.t.c .

Please do hint what type of weapons these OPVs shall have, it was repeated by PN officials that these OPVs are for Navy and shall support ASW, AD and ASHM roles. Shall be armed domestically but now we are getting another picture with many ifs. Our sole OHP is without credible AD and F22P have limited air defense capability, we should immediately arm them properly with some capable SAMs though short range with other gadgets.
