    Purpose is to equip these ship with local weapons such as cruise missile and third party system specially Turkish or Chinese.
    Believe me,soon, it will be a lethal punch.

    It's not a Romanian company. Damen is a Dutch company. It's common practice to have different components of ships/aircraft etc. manufactured/assembled in multiple locations. But have to agree with somewhat on the lack of indigenous production.

    Yea no, there's literally no point in putting cruise missiles on ships that aren't made for the role we already have frigates and fast attacks completely capable of carrying out the sort of ground attack ops we require from our navy. And excuse the profanity but enough with the bloody Chinese.

    The baseline OPV version of these ships (minus naval weapons and electronics) is in the $50-60 m per ship range, which isn't bad. Basically, the PN can front-load the vessels first, and work on fitting them with anti-ship, anti-submarine and SHORAD capabilities gradually later.

    It is not about tiny or a big country but the level of skills.

    Since it's based off of a patrol vessel, how flexible is it in regards to future upgrades and are there any prospects of integrating a VLS considering it's a littoral ship? Also, what's the class name in PN service?

    I doubt it'd be flexible enough for an in-hull VLS. But it should be able to take-on a standard AShW and ASW capability, and a decent AAW capability via SHORAD.

    In terms of SHORAD, one option could be to look at externally-mounted VLS, e.g., the Denel Cheetah C-RAM suite.

    It isn't great in range, but it can give you 16-32 missiles, each with 10+ km range and enough velocity to stop nearby helicopters, subsonic AShM, and possibly a supersonic cruising AShM. That'd still be better than what the F-22P has at least.

    I will not discount the FM-90N to this extent. It is a decent, albeit short legged SAM system that can be used against a variety of threats.

    Romanian Ship yard manufactured 2 Ships 93 meter long , in 2-3 years
    Our local shipyard is nesting on the Azmat class 4th missile boat for 3 years a boat aroun 75 meter or so mark

    Hope that the Pakistan Shipping Yard , also steps up their game a bit

    We could have constructed same ship locally 100% but we needed to have a large
    Man power base for it
