The ship was launched in March 2014.
“The construction of the F 14 Sin Phyu Shin frigate was supposedly carried out with the technical assistance of the PRC and the DPRK. The frigate is a further development of the design of the previous Frigate F 12 Kyan Sittha built in Sinmalaik, commissioned by the Myanmar Navy in April 2014 of the year, ”the blogger said.
Both ships are built using Stealth technology and have the same hull length - 108 m, but differ in architecture.
