    Yup -- below is from the main contractor ASFAT A.S.


    It was decided that 4 MİLGEM corvettes will be purchased by Pakistan, 2 of them will be built in the Istanbul Shipyard and the others will be built in Karachi.

    In the first phase, a corvette each respectively to be built in Istanbul and Karachi will participate in the Pakistan Navy inventory in 2023. The other 2 ships will enter the inventory in 2024.

    The production process will take 54 months for the first ship, 60 months for the second ship, 66 months on the third ship and 72 months on the last ship.

    These ships will be lightly armed and mostly take the coastal defense roles, along with SAR , and it will free the F-22's ,Type 54's and Milgem to be solely on Attack or front formations .

    The issue is capacity at Karachi shipyard not expertise. We have built and are building more complex ships. BTW this is Dutch technology not Romanian. Just Romanian labor. Capacity at Karachi shipyard will increase many fold very soon with new facilities being constructed.

    It seems they're starting production ~6 months apart of one another.

    The delivery time for Milgem is not friendly time line
    Should request a adjustment so all 4 come at same time

    Forget about building in Karachi , they need to finish the 4th Azmat Class ship first on time
    Still strongly suggest we get the 4 Chinese Destroyers (my own personal opinion)

    This feeling is correct. I remember I have read somewhere, PN's milgems will be customised for Pakistan's needs, will be a little bit slower but will posses more weapons etc. My only concern is I hope PN wont overloaded the ADA so Much And ruin its stealth design... afterall I believe ADA's Real power is its stealth design. Thanks to this ADA is a great warship for anti-submarine And strike missions..

    Sir as per data on net the HQ 16 b range of 70 km+ is optimized to tackle the supersonic missiles like Brahmos so PN should go for it to arm the future ships , meanwhile if possible F22P frigates should also be upgraded with HQ16B as so far it is perhaps the most viable option for PN considering costs and complexities as the other option can be SA Umkhonto but perhaps out of favor from PN for time being.

    May be PN should request Chinese to develop a lighter version of HQ 9 which can be fitted on lighter ships.

    The FM90 on F22P can be installed on these two corvettes meanwhile other two available FM90 systems may be installed on future expected corvettes.
