The launching ceremony of the 2nd ship of Type-054 Class Frigate constructed for Pakistan Navy, was held at Hudong Zhonghua Shipyard Shanghai, China.

The ceremony was graced by Commodore Azfar Humayun (Chief Naval Overseer, China) as Chief Guest.

While addressing the ceremony, CNO highlighted that induction of these warships will significantly enhance Pakistan’s maritime defense and deterrence capabilities.

He also acknowledged the commitment, hard work, and timely completion of this important milestone project by M/s CSTC and HZ Shipyard, Shanghai despite the ongoing global pandemic.

Type-054 Frigates will be one of the most technologically advanced surface platforms of the Pakistan Navy Fleet, fitted with the latest surface, subsurface, and anti-air weapon systems.
