Islamabad: Launching Ceremony of first state of the art 2300 Tons Corvette vessel being built for Pakistan Navy was held at M/s DAMEN Shipyard Galati, Romania.
Chief of Staff (Personnel), Vice Admiral Abdul Aleem graced the occasion as Chief Guest.
Corvettes are multi-purpose platforms of medium size and tonnage. Subsequent to the signing of contract for construction of two Corvettes for Pakistan Navy in 2017, the first ship is expected to join Pakistan Navy Fleet by end of this year and the second would be delivered by mid-2020.
Speaking on the occasion, the Chief Guest underscored the importance of Corvettes in the maritime domain.
