China has introduced the ‘most advanced’ warship, which was developed for the Pakistan Navy, in a ceremony at Hudong Zhonghua shipyard in Shanghai, China.
This vessel is the first of the four Type-054 class frigates expected to help Pakistan tackle challenges in the future.
According to local media, the guided missile frigate is said to be the biggest combat ship that has been sold by China to a navy of a foreign country and marks an important step for the military export sector of the country.
The remaining three ships are expected to join the Pakistan Navy next year.
Gulf News quoted the Pakistan Navy as saying in a statement that the frigates will feature modern surface, subsurface and anti-air weapons and sensors.
The vessels will be one of the most advances surface platforms in its fleet and “contribute in maintaining peace and security in its area of responsibility.”
The Type 054A Class of missile frigates are being built by Hudong-Zhonghua Shipyard and Huangpu Shipyard for the People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN).
They have a length of 134m and a beam of 16m. The standard displacement is 3,600t, while the full displacement is around 4,000t. Each vessel has a crew complement of 165.
Pakistan and China have deepened their military and defence ties with the ‘Sea Guardians 2020’ joint naval drill in the Arabian Sea and the development of JF-17 multirole combat aircraft.
Last month, China Shipbuilding Group planned to build an advanced amphibious assault ship to boost the Chinese marines’ ability to hit targets on land and at sea.
