Pakistan ordered MILGEM type corvettes in Turkey

Turkish state-owned company Savunma Teknolojileri Mühendislik ve Ticaret (STM) won the tender for the Pakistan Navy and received a contract for the supply of Pakistani the fleet four corvettes of the MILGEM project, reports bmpd.

Turkish Defense Minister Nurettin Janikli called this agreement the country's largest export contract for the defense industry.

According to the signed contract, the first two corvettes will be built in Istanbul at the Istanbul Naval Shipyard, with delivery in 2023 year.

The construction of two other ships is planned in Pakistan (KSEW shipyard in Karachi) in 2024, with the assistance of Turkish engineers.

The resource recalls that the corvette MILGEM was the first relatively large warship (total displacement 2,3 thousand tons, length 99,6 meters) of the Turkish project. Although in fact the project was developed with the participation of the Nikolaev State CPI of shipbuilding (Ukraine).

The Turkish Navy planned to get 12 of such ships. However, so far only four corvettes have been authorized to build. The lead ship F 511 Heybeliada was introduced into the Navy in 2011 year. The second (first serial) was transferred to the fleet in 2013 year. The other two are at the Istanbul shipyard in varying degrees of readiness.

          And what is the point of doing fast, but low-fighting units?
          On Buyans they will attach Pantsiri and for a long time they will not have competitors in the class. And it’s better to have 12 buoys .. with a salvo of 96 CR of different types .. than dozens of nepoymy what ..

    Well, they are great. They negotiated good conditions on threats to leave for China - as a result, 4 corvettes according to the 2 + 2 and 30 ATAC helicopters.

    China also fraternally delivered 2 + 2, the 054 frigate, with the closure of the contract in the 21 year (that is, the transfer of all 4 new frigates).

    As a result, they will be able to finish all the trash level of British frigates type 21. Left with the relatively new Chinese frigates F22Р + 4х054А (and YJ-18 can be ordered to them in theory - although this is unlikely) + Milgemes.

      Normal medium corvette, he has everything. Not space - but pretty good. They wouldn’t order 20380 with the price for the Navy in 18 billion rubles ... That corvette floats in 230-280 without MK41 and in the export offer. Packs rather stung closer to 230. They bargained desperately and threatened to leave for the Chinese. Plus, this is most likely linked to the 30 ATAC turntables and a joint discount on everything.
