Pakistan may import 022 from the Chinese stealth missile boats (map)
data for: 022 new Chinese navy missile boats
Currently, Pakistan Navy is gradually receiving Chinese-made F-22P frigates new and used US-made “Perry “class frigate. But large compared to the Indian Navy, “with old and new,” the Pakistani military in the strength still a gap. To further enhance the Navy’s strike capability, Pakistan again thought of an old friend of China.
According to the “Pakistan Daily Mail” on July 15 reported that the head of Pakistan’s Karachi Shipyard said that Pakistan co-production with China Founder of fast attack boats equipped with missiles.
cooperation with China-made attack boats
head of Karachi Shipyard, Admiral 拉奥伊夫蒂 Carl Pakistan has said that Pakistan is working with cooperation with China to produce a missile capable of carrying heavy weapons such as high-speed attack boats, the first one being built in China, and another one will be built in Pakistan, Karachi Shipyard has received this Rs 200 million funding.
According to the “Pakistan Daily Mail,” the disclosure, according to the agreement signed by China and Pakistan, two countries will then build two boats the same type of attack.
present, the Chinese built for Pakistan F-22P frigates and 2, the first ship of Pakistan Navy ships have been delivered, 3 ships will be delivered by the end of this year, and subsequent 4-ship in Pakistan construction. As mentioned in Pakistan’s “high-speed attack boats,” the specific model is still unknown, it may be a relatively short missile shape.
If the Pakistani Army is really to introduce missile boats from China, then the use of stealth design of 022-type missile boats is a good choice. According to Western speculation, 022-type missile boats for about 40 meters, 12 meters wide and up to 36 speed, wave-piercing hull and the whole stealth-type design, type of equipment an AK630 Su Shebao and eight anti-ship missiles. In view of Pakistan F-22P frigates have been the project’s successful experience of cooperation, Pakistan to further the introduction of advanced missile boats in China is not impossible.
make up for lack of a large ship disadvantage
can foresee the future of Pakistan Navy F-22P frigates will be, and the U.S. Navy retired, “Perry” class frigates play the main. But with the equipment, aircraft carriers, destroyers and frigates of Indian Navy invisible compared to small Pakistani Navy is still a relatively weak emphasis on coastal defense force. As the investment gap with India too, the Pakistani army can not maintain a large-scale surface ship, and low cost, highly offensive missile boats just can make up for this deficiency. For the military tension in the country, the missile boats, low cost, can purchase a large number of advantages of scale. Large surface ships and frigates than stealth missile boats of the radar reflection area of ??smaller, more capable to survive, can be hidden with a high speed to attack the enemy, hit a large enemy surface ships.
in a few advanced frigates and fighter support, a large number of missile boats can also be used in a concentrated enemy blockade or on the landing of large surface ships launched “missile saturation attack,” guard one’s own coastal strategy space. Especially the 022 class missile boats and equipment, high speed, subtle and strong, fierce fire, if a large number of equipment, supplemented by appropriate tactical flexibility, the play no less out of combat frigates and destroyers and other large equipment.
