Pakistan to acquire up to 3 Type 42s according to Jane's

On first look this seems promising for RN, but it seems they are only interested in the Batch 3's, which will now probably be decommissioned earlier than envisioned and leave a big gap in assets.

The mods the PN did to the 21's have made them more than capable weapons systems for the use they are getting, I would imagine the 42's would be refitted in a similar fashion. If they are only after the Batch 3's these are still 10+ years younge than the 21's so shouldn't be in that bad a shape.
