KSEW can manufacture ships and submarines using kits of materiel (KoM) from the original supplier.

This isn't assembling as there's still manufacturing involved (e.g., cutting steel). However, the KoMs would include all of the critical inputs such as the steel and engines.

Pakistan doesn't produce any of the inputs indigneously. So, with ToT deals or even original designs, all of the engines and steel have to come from abroad. We basically didn't advance much since the 1970s and used 50 odd years for development to ruin our industry.
Thanks @Bilal Khan (Quwa)

Please do update us on the Chinese Submarine's arrival and also about the prospect of Turkish Designs.

After the acquisition of 8 Chinese submarines, will PN going to replace this with Turkish options or will buy another modern version of the same Chinese SSKs to replace Agosta-90Bs?
I think EU options are still there :)

A-90Bs are going through MLU so no replacement for next 10-20 years.

The 8 (or 9) subs will replace the 2 Agosta 70 class submarines, the rest will be new acquisitions. The 90B class is still a very very potent submarine, it’s just getting its mid-life upgrades and will serve till at least 2040 if not beyond. As for a future submarine project, Pakistan has shown interest in joining Turkeys MILDEN submarine program, I hope by the next time PN needs submarines, Pakistan will make its own based on that project or another similar joint project. If things go really well and our industrial base improves, we might even see a local design by then.
