    edit: n/m, the damn Firefox / ABP act funny with imagesshack stuff...

    Now, this look like a corvette size (or smaller even) ship and more akin with the French LaFayette class in silhouette. What I don't get is the bulge at the bridge, which spoiled the low-radar signature overall design.

    that's true, much smaller ... but it does look like 054

    Perhaps 056

    very modern looking and a very good ship for PN, but 2 or 3 does not do it justice, PN should up the order to atleast 6-8 I have no idea why they have ordered just 2 of these

    PN already makes the Jalalat II missile boats so making more of these under ToT should not be too much of a problem

    it is interesting to see majority of PN and PAF now use Chinese built/designed weapons, even the air force which has traditionally enjoyed Western systems for decades has cut Erieye order and got Chinese AWACSs and cut the F16 C/D Block 52+ order to 18 and optted for J10 or FC-20 as they call it in Pakistan

    The small order may be to allow the PN to fully evaluate it before committing to a big purchase, and/or it could be because the PN has more important things to spend their money on at present, especially with talk of wanting 054s and new SSKs etc.
