    I agree -- my earlier statement was harsh. It was an outcome of our options at that time, but the PN really will go through a massive AAW jump via the Type 054A/P (32 VLS w/HQ-16) and MILGEM (16 VLS w/HQ-16).

    These are Ships are the need of hour for Pakistan but i they need some High End Weapon system which can play the role of agressor themeselves
    Pakistan can Purchase many frigates , Corvettes these can give more time do others jobs which Heavy ships had to do but Pakistan doesnt have any Heavy Hitters these can be used against pirates but against indian heavy hitters they will have less chance of survival.
    Pakistan could order 2 3 New chinese destroyers with Subs Which can atleast provide long range air cover for these smaller ships in Pakistani Seas While Subs can be the aggressors while being the force multipliers but unfortunatly Subs have small chances of doing much when Pakistani navy will be having hard time protecting its shores which will give indian more chances to deploy more assets in Pakistani sea against subs

    I heard Pakistan is developing Steel mills, Pakistan could ask China to do a JV with current ship they have in fleet to be build in Pakistan for Paksitani Navy even if it will take more time, Pakistan can spend less while keeping the pace slow will provide experience for Local industry to supply Weapon system for these with slower pace Pakistan can keep a side project of converting Mid life upgrade for current fleet with dedicated roles rather than having them do perform multi roles It will be hard job, but if they are able to that locally it will give huge experience.

    Yup and PM of Pakistan will use that to Drill in Arabian Sea which will flood the water with Black Gold and Pakistan will become the biggest economy in South Asia in a night

    This is an OPV... I must admit if you arm it well it would be a good warship specialy for coastal defence but Milgem is a stealth corvette and its offensive capacity (Because of stealth design and greater arming capacity) are much more... Milgem and this, apple and orange...
    Note- You can actually buy 4-5 of them with a price of single Milgem.

    It is a barebone ship , a empty shell platform
    Pakistan will pick unique customization for it by Local effort

    > The most immediate offensive weapon would be our Anza Missile fired from a Sailor
    > The Cannon which comes with ship
    > CWIZ
    > Helicopters would be able to launch Torpedo and Hunt submarine


    Work in progress for our Engineering group to make it customize it
