    Will try to give some answers...

    • No its direct procurement.
    • No Improved version of F22P (F23P).
    • Up gradation of F22P is ON.
    • Since its direct procurement, therefore the delivery timeline will be within 4 years from first steel cutting for all 6 FFGs.
    • No news on incorporation of LACMs, though its quite possible like on new SSKs.

    • Pasni/Jiwani/Gwadar/Karachi are now functioning as active operational bases.
    • Port Qasim/Ormara & Katty Bandar will serve as operational bases for PMSA & PCG.
    • 2 new ATR are currently in modification as MPA in France, which complement P3Cs.
    • Thanks to Ra'ad & Babur S/LCAMs, PN don't need heavy fighter to cover the coastline.
    • Squadrons of Mirage III/V capable to launch S/LCAMs are based in Karachi.
    • 2 ZDK3 are also based in Karachi.
    • There are confirmed reports that upon the induction of JF17 - BLK3, a squadron (Maybe dual seat) will be assign for PN duties.
    • All 3 Sqd of F7PGs will be permanently based in Pasni.
    • As per sources PAF is going for KJ 500s (8-12), then all 4 ZDK3s will be dedicated for PN duties.

    So all in all PN will have 2 Mirage + 3 F7PGs + 1 JF17 BLK3 (Total 6) squadrons (100 plus Fighters) on their disposal along with 14 - 16 MPAs (P3Cs + ATRs).

    Quite a handsome Air cover for 550 Miles Coastline & don't forget the ZDK3s.

    The M-IIIs/Vs and F-7PGs can't go on for very long, PN / PAF will either have to replace these with Standard JF-17s or something else or end up with a single squadron of JF-17s for the PN needs. Time for JH-7As has long passed, couple of Squadrons of them would have gone long way for PN when they first got inducted.

    If my analysis is correct, the Mirage llls/Vs with IFR, are or would be dedicated for Pakistan Navy (owned & operated by Pakistan Air Force). With IFR, these Mirages represent a minimal offensive capability, armed with ALCMs. And if this is true, there is or will be future plans for either PAF or PN to establish a core capability with long-range Naval Combat Aircraft. I stress "in the future."

    All analysis lead to this single conclusion, that as CPEC progresses, with resultant economic growth for Pakistan. So it would be crucial for Pakistan to be able to effectively defend it's maritime territory, "independently."

    CAVALIER GROUP UNVEILS HAMZA 6×6 MULTI-ROLE COMBAT VEHICLE

    [​IMG]

    Pakistan’s Cavalier Group revealed the Hamza 6×6 Multi-Role Combat Vehicle (MCV) at the 2017 Bahrain International Defence Exhibition and Conference (BIDEC), which is taking this week until October 18.

    The Hamza 6×6 appears to be a variant of the Hamza 8×8 MCV, which was revealed at Pakistan’s biennially-held defence exhibition IDEAS in November 2016. Cavalier positioned the Hamza 8×8 as a multi-mission solution with under-chassis blast protection of STANAG 4569 Level-4B.

    The Hamza 8×8 also had armament options in the form of a 12.7 mm heavy machine gun, 30 mm cannon, anti-tank guided missiles, very short-range air defence guns or mortar firing system.

    It does not appear that the Pakistan Army proceeded with the Hamza 8×8. It is unclear if the Hamza 6×6 was meant for export or as a revised offering to Pakistan. Cavalier’s marketing material for BIDEC also has illustrations of another 6×6 AFV and two light armoured vehicles, including one that appears to be a utility vehicle analogous to the Humvee.
