China will supply Pakistan 8 submarines

25
Beijing and Islamabad reached an agreement on concluding a multibillion-dollar (the largest for China since entering the world market) contract for the supply of non-nuclear submarines by the Pakistani Navy, reports TSAMTO.

China will supply Pakistan 8 submarines


Details of the agreement have not been disclosed. A formal agreement will be signed after the approval of the transaction by the Chinese leadership.

The British Financial Times, citing its sources, reported that the value of the contract will be $ 4-5 billion.

According to sources in the Pakistani Ministry of Finance, the money to Beijing will be transferred in four tranches.

In June, China entered into a contract with Pakistan for the supply of 6-patrol ships. It is assumed that the 4 ship will be built in the territory of the People's Republic of China (by CSTC), the other two - in Pakistan at the shipyard of the company Karachi Shipyard & Engineering Works.

      But this is exactly how India can appreciate such steps! But it is interesting that at the same time both Pakistan and India want to join EURASEC! Maybe somehow on this site reconcile! Mediated by Russia (Putin)? I really hope so!

        First of all. Not to the EurAsEC, but to the SCO.
        Secondly. Initially, Russia insisted on the entry of only India, and the PRC - of Pakistan. Reception of both countries has become a compromise.
        Thirdly. I doubt very much that reconciliation is generally possible between India and Pakistan. Completely different nations and cultures. In fact, Pakistan is anti-India, and it was conceived by the ideologists of Pakistani statehood and the British colonial administration. Too many stumbling blocks between the two countries, for example, Kashmir. Their general membership in the SCO may somehow freeze their conflict, but it is unlikely to resolve it.

          Regarding different nations, you are not quite right, the nation is almost the same if you do not take into account the northern Pashtuns.

        But India can evaluate such steps just like that!

        India and China also have sluggish territorial graters. Hindus with Chinese aircraft carriers are measured. Eh, such a market is a fairy tale.

      laughing

      The main thing in the news is that we are thrown out of the market.
      I would not be surprised if the United States becomes our "best friends" in the next 10 years. I don't want to turn into "Mexico" for China. Although some people live well in Mexico.

        Along the way, everything goes to that, our connivance in the search for momentary profit and interest in the total commodity circulation leads precisely to leaving the market and it is impossible to dump all the time and hope for the pipe.

    Right. 4 boats of 2 types are ordered.

    Now India will have to scratch it. Since by 2020, Pakistan will have more submarines than in India.

      We do not sell weapons to Pakistan so far. Packs originally came to us. They wanted to buy our boats. But we did not sell them. Because the packs decided to buy from China.

      It would have been that "take" would have "taken" long ago. I honestly envy that it is so easy for China to build dozens of ships for itself and supply them for export ... But we still need to figure out whose "projects" these are.

      In the case of Pakistan, the Chinese do not need to climb anywhere. Pakistan is China's "war hamster", which it feeds against India and the USSR.
      For the packs, the Chinese did not stint even nuclear weapons - they transferred the manufacturing technology of the 25-kt SBP, sent their specialists to centrifuges, and helped build a reactor for producing weapons-grade plutonium.

          The Saudis provided financial assistance to the packs. But out of the bare bucks, the nuclear charge cannot be blinded. smile
          It was China that helped solve all design, technical, technological, and operational issues. Without it, the packs would have taken much more time to go along the thorny path of a military atom.

      Logically, and most importantly - positively. if only the Germans or Swedes did not decide to do this.

        But do Germans or Swedes have quality submarines? The Germans are again trying to shove their 214 India. Last time we got a bribe. We decided to try again. And Sweden is a complete outsider in terms of submarines. Australia is a confirmation of this.

      Keele 31, what is the confrontation and state of war? As far as we know, China and Pakistan have no serious contradictions. But with India - a smoldering conflict. By the way, this is clearly visible at the household level: try to find at least some Chinese goods in an Indian store, see a Chinese car on the road! And Pakistan was created by the British artificially, for the wiles of India and to create tension in the region.

        Pakistan, India, China they have very very great confrontation over territorial issues. Each month they have a confrontation on the border (on each side there are dozens of dead on both sides) I would call this not a smoldering conflict, but a constant one.

    Well, another alarming "call" to the French, after the story with the Mistrals, because earlier Pakistan bought its submarines exclusively from France. Plus India's warning. And, of course, another "breakthrough2" by Chinese gunsmiths, despite the fact that China already occupies a dominant position in the Pakistani arms market.
    The Pakistani Navy cannot currently withstand the Indian Navy, but is rightly considered the second most powerful Navy in the region:
    2 type Hashmat diesel submarines of the French Agosta 70 project are former South African, delivered in the 2009 year
    3 diesel submarines type French project Khalid advanced project Agosta 90B

    2 X-Craft mini submarines, and 110 tons of Italian construction
    4 type frigate Zulfiquar-ship hull built in China, armed with American arms in Pakistani shipyards.

    5 Tariq class, former British veterans of the Falklands War, Amazon class frigates, delivered in 1993-1994, 6 delivered in total, but the Badr frigate was withdrawn from the Navy last year.

    1 Alamgir former American McInerney-type "Oliver H. Perry", aired 2010
    The Munsif type minesweeper 2 of the French project Tripartite, 2 of which are built in Pakistan
    22 missile boats
    140 patrol boats.
    4 landing craft on an air cushion "Griffin" of the British project 2000TDX
    The fleet does not have its own air force; they are part of the air force and account for
    7 American P-3S Orion

    7 Dutch Fokker F27-200 Friendship Patrol
    4 English Hawker 850
    6 Westland Sea King Mk.45
    8 Aérospatiale SA-319B Alouette III
    12 Harbin Z-9EC
    In addition, over the 32 of the French Dassault Mirage V and the Sino-Pakistani JF-2015 Thunder (Block II) replacing them from 17 may be involved in the fight against surface targets.
