PN should start naming its ships after national heroes as well along with Islamic ones. How about naming one Porus, Jasrath, Khushal khan, Saadullah, Adina beg, Siraj-ud-duala, Shabaz khan, Sarang kham or such other heroes.

if this is indeed named after Amir taimur. Then probably a bad idea considering he basically destroyed muslim forces to get what he wanted and pummeled through everything. wrecked ottomans, persians, Hind etc.

Hope you guys didn't hire a bunch of girl and twerk it out when you commission this ship


On the other note, this is a nice ship.

Lol thankfully not. I’m sure the twerk raises the T levels of the sailors making them more fighting ready.
At least that’s the only excuse I can have for such a spectacle.

Or that the RAN folks are just dumb......

Apparently, they had hired those dancer before, I mean that's not their first gig hired by the Navy...........

Anyway, this is going to improve Anti-Air capability for PN for sure, but I wonder if PN have any acquisition program like the Australian that purchase larger Frigate that fill the role between Frigate and Destroyer? Or do PN think that would be a waste of money?? Because a more multi-purpose platform should be sought imo to expand PN force multiplying ability......

I like RAN don't be too hard on them, I guess the cheerleaders appeal to generation Z who generally don't have an interest in military affairs?
Yes the PN does have future plans for a larger ship and will be looking towards the Turkish TF-2000-class destroyer which is an actual destroyer. The ground has been laid with the Milgem being built, followed by the Jinnah frigate and this would be the logical next step, as manufacturing knowhow and commonality will be there with earlier ships.

As news reported by Pakistan's Daily Khabrain
Editor must have been busy with something he could not find a correct image of the Ship

Well, they sure did make an impact on those top brass there......Not sure about the young blood sailor.....

Anyway, I think PN needs to invest in 7-8000 ton ship, 3-4000 tons (if they are the same spec with Type 54A) is too small and most likely taken up berthing space. While I think it is good to have in the interim, you want a ship that can do both AS/AA role and possibly Anti-Surface role, it does not need to be super advance but you can have less ship but more capability, that translate to survivability.

On the other hand, were Pakistani involvement with Milgem only for 4 Corvette? Or is there are new development that PN are interested in TF-2000 project? TF-2000 would be ideal, but given Turkey have enough economic might to actually build it.

I agree with you wholeheartedly. Yes the Milgem is four ships, which will then see the follow Jinnah class a similar ship but bigger. The TF-2000 would be the next step.
