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

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. 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.
  2. The want to replace/compliment former T21's that are "over 30 years old" with a T42 that is almost as old?

  3. 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.
