Lieutenant Commander Shakeel Ahmed.
In keeping with contracts signed between China and Pakistan in 2005, the
frigates will be equipped with anti-submarine helicopters,
surface-to-surface and surface-to-air missiles and other defence systems.
"The F-22P frigates will not only enhance the war fighting potential of the
