That will depend on the decision of Pakistan Navy, my bet is Z9C or Z9D from China. Other helicopters in the similar weight class should be able to be deployed, as attached list below:-Hi so if we go by the looks of hangar door what kind of helicopter will go into it
if possible to reply
It still needs to fit its radars and other gadgets so its not going to leave for a while. Then it will have to do trials and fix things that trials uncover. So it will be awhile before it leaves for the PN.
Its true now.Interesting chart of frigate/corvette construction build.
Whether this chart is based on true knowledge, we cant say at this moment...........but time will tell as when new ships are completed we will be able to make a comparison of pennant numbers against this list.
One thing though I noticed there does seem to be errors on the list as it is currently shown..........i.e. there are some pennant numbers shown where the older 053 ships will be replaced by 054B Frigates, but the actual pennant numbers are shown in the 054A Frigate column.
It would of been nice to of seen a time frame on this list as well.
Interestingly, I have also seen Chinese navy construction plans for this decade on another website, and again the list appears to of been created by a Chinese person, who seemed to of gone to great lengths to specify how much of a percent each ship would be completed in a given year.
If I can find it again i'll post it just for reference!
Points noticed on that chart were that only 1 new carrier would be built between now and 2020.
Construction of 055 Destroyer/Cruiser to begin in 2013.
By 2020 I think the list said there would be at least 8 055's completed.
The type 052D construction would continue aside the type 055, and in the latter part of the decade a further improved version of this class the 052E would be built around 2017 onwards.
Like I said, the charts could be a Chinese fanboys creation, BUT it will be interesting to see if they become realised to be true.
