This program is between Halcon and Rheinmetall to develop a self defense system fo ships using the Skyknight missile.

Performance is generally similar to the RIM-116 and may be used for UAEN and export customers.

Pakistan so far has been resistant to opting RIM style CIWS. Hope they include them in future or a hybrid solution which incorporates both missiles and gun. It is certainly a more expensive endeavour but with threat of supersonic missiles it is a priority. Availability has been an issue.

2/secs per round is crucial here and the faster it can respond the better some folks were saying this is basically Iron dome or what but it is not

A Joint venture should be explored. I would actully love to see Pakistan follow the Ukraine model in getting entangled with every single freaking project that is taking off.. It is crazy how Ukraine achieve to do that there is few handful projects that Ukraine is not part of currently.. If there is a random production project taking place on some unknown island country Ukraine is involved in it somehow via joint venture agreement it seems like they are active constantly and engage with others

JV is an expensive endeavour and Pakistan has reserved such ventures for more strategic projects. As far as Ukraine is concerned you have to understand they inherited all military tech from
soviet union as its territory was a manufacturing hub for a wide range of defence related equipments. Ukraine has basically just built on capability which was always there for them. They didnt have to invest anything into establishment of new industrial base whether it was for R&D or manufacturing.

There is something called tax and all you gotta do is cut tax from the civilians and make way for any project necessary. Pakistan is 1 trillion economy there is alot of money flooding inside the country you just need to tax your way into them

You are not suppose to quote GDP in PPP when you talk about development spending. Always quote GDP nominal method according to which size of economy is 294 billion by last estimate. Now consider that debt to GDP ratio is 74%. Forex reserves to Debt ratio is 196%. Our country is running on a net negative CA deficit and lets not talk about negative trade deficit. Pakistan will need almost 12 billion next year for debt repayment and servicing. You need to consider ine thing right now our external debt is 112 billion and forex reserves are 22 billion. All of this is reality first fix your economy to a level where we can actually even talk about JV.

Pakistan's Nominal is not correct and in fact most nominals are not and it is hard to pinpoint them hence the flood of money is much greater and all you gotta do is find ways to tax yourself into it
