    Whats the purpose and role of these ships?

    Do we require such big ships for maritime patrolling only ?

    They would be involved in anti ship and anti Air operations too so they aren't just for patrolling

    They might be equipped with harbah missile too

    Impressive construction speed by the Romanians. It almost seems like that we were only talking about these ships yesterday, and now today they have been inducted. I reckon PN needs to place an order for additional ships via DAMEN as soon as possible.

    Congrats.....fast pace give them 4 more ship building contract
    Great patrol anti piracy boat

    OPV (offshore patrol boat)

    Hopefully with some local setup it will get improved in due time, now it is up to local engineering these can be considered as OPV/Corvettes

    The base model gives Pakistan Navy chance to implement it's own locally constructed Technology on platform

    Excellent news..... but also a bit sad. A country of 220 million with some very highly talented people has to look towards a tiny country like Romania for building our war ship. Thanks to seven decades of zero emphasis on indigenous manufacturing and production.
