DHAKA, Nov. 5 (Xinhua) -- The launching ceremony of Bangladesh Navy's five modern ships was held Thursday at a naval berth in the country's Chattogram seaport city, some 242 km southeast of capital Dhaka.

Among them, two were originally Type-053H3 frigates:

One is an updated export version of Type 056 corvette (with a new radar on top of the mast):

And the rest two were survey ships made at a shipyard in Banglades.

I find it interesting that the C13B uses the Type 349 radar for the gunnery (not referring to the new AESA on top) instead of the Type 347 radar the PLAN uses on their 056/056A. The Type 349 has a flattened cone for its dome while the 347 has a rice farmer hat like cone. This is a trivial detail but I get my nerdgasms on trivial details like this. Type 349 has been used as close defense radars on the Type 071 LPD, the 136/137 destroyer refits, and as landing radars on the Liaoning, Shandong and Type 075.

Any idea what that radar is ?

The one on top is the SR2410C. SMART-S Mk.2 or Artisan 3D are the closest Western analogs to it for reference.

The metric wave radar on the back is similar to the ones installed on the Pakistan F22P.

Indeed thank you, upon research, I got this:
The SR2410C is a 3D multifunction PESA Radar loosely equivalent to the famous Smart-S Mk2 by Thales. It has already been fitted aboard the Bangladesh Navy C13B corvette which were built in China. According to manufacturer's data, it has an air range of over 250 km and can track 150 surface and air targets simultaneously.

Regarding the metric radar: Type 517 or type 518 ?

I think it might be an AESA not a PESA according to some of the Chinese text about it, but definitely an ESA on the safe side.

Type 517 is PLA use only designation, this radar is an export variant of the Type 517 and there are variances. It is Type 517 but as export version, it has an export name, which is SUR17B.
