I believe our navy is now on right track and sure in next few years we will hear some good news.Start to have the force built from ground to highest like we are having a good number of FAC boats like Azmat as 3rd has been launched out of 4 plnned, a bigger naval tanker recently launched, having 8 new AIP subs with the help of China and currently started to upgrade the 90-B with the help of Turkey and we are in talks or we can say there is interest for Milgem-G type bigger Turkish ships (Corvettes and Frigates).
That these all are must at least to provide a strong foundation then it comes to the AirCraft Carrier which is currently a rich guys toy, a power projector and for long shots.
Our adversary is next door to us and is not far as well as by having these advanced Subs and ships, it is going to be a force to reckon with and after all, plans are made which suits the doctrine.
We need to build-up and raise a strong Navy but from lo to high and ACC is the last shot so there is no urgency to have it but need to focus on latest ships and weaponry. ACC itself becomes a liability during war that need a separate protection fleet consists attack ships and Subs.
The REAL Reason Why Pakistan must have an Aircraft CarrierBut why not?
It all comes back to the end. Pakistan does not really need an Aircraft Carrier. It serves no interest or purpose as of now and even for the near future. Investing in a Nuclear powered aircraft carrier would cost over 5 billion dollars. The Pakistan Navy spent that very same amount on 8 submarines. A much better choice.
nice videosThe REAL Reason Why Pakistan must have an Aircraft Carrier
Both were mighty beast and were detected/destroyed by much inferior planes took off from Air craft carrier. Can u believe a small biplane was cause of destruction of Bismark???
No money no honey, thats the reason.
India is the biggest navel power in the Indian Ocean, it constantly undermine Pakistani military. If Pakistan could afford a carrier it would have.
Why do people not read the article and just the title?Real Reason : No $$$$ No romance.
Again no $$$$ no toys. Submarines are based on type 39 class for which P 8I is enough. By 2028 india will have multiple nuclear submarines and the scorpenes plus P 75I not to mention refurbuished kilos(2?).nice videos

PN would be lucky if PAF sends F-16 on PN's call, so far 2nd and 8th Squadrons are for Maritime support.Third in case of war with India its Airforce and fighter jets F-16 and Jf-17 can do the damage and block the Strait of Hormuz due to the close distance and a high combat range of these aircraft.
