Sino-Pak will patrol Gwadar to Djibouti
According to reports, China and Pakistan together are preparing to increase naval patrol from Gwadar to Djibouti in Africa. On their patrol route, the area of Hormuz Water Treaty will also come. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), 40 to 46 percent of the total crude oil exported worldwide comes from the ‘Hormuz Water Treaty’ region. In such a situation, China and Pakistan can cut off the world’s oil supply line, including India.
China is increasing the power of Pak Navy
China is now going to change the color of the entire Pakistani Navy with the help of billions of dollars of weapons. Naval relations between China and Pakistan have also increased rapidly. In April itself, China and Pakistan conducted a naval exercise in the Arabian Sea. Recently released satellite photographs also revealed that Pakistan deployed its Agosta-19B type diesel electric attack submarine to protect Chinese warships. This French-origin submarine is capable of launching the nuclear missile Babur-3.
Pakistan is buying 8 submarines from China
The Pakistani Navy is purchasing a Type 039B Yuan class submarine based on Chinese design to increase its strength. This diesel electric Chinese submarine is capable of increasing Pakistan’s naval strength. Which carries anti-ship cruise missiles. This submarine produces low noise due to the Air Independent Propulsion System. Due to which it is very difficult to detect under water.
China is also giving steel freegates to Pakistan
In addition, China is offering Type-544A multi-purpose steel freegates to Pakistan that are capable of dodging radars. Apart from this, China is giving many other weapons to the Pakistani Navy. For this, Pakistan had signed a $ 7 billion deal with China. Pakistan is now buying 70 percent of its weapons from China. In addition, China is preparing to build a naval base in Djibouti, Gwadar and the Maldives. Building a naval base will make it easier for China to send its military equipment anywhere. China is trying to establish its dominance over South Asia after seizing the South China Sea.
Pak Navy will become very deadly with Chinese weapons
The Pakistan Navy currently has only nine freegates, five submarines and 10 missile boats and three minesweepers. The Pakistani Navy will become very lethal due to the warships being received from China. These warships can attack up to 4000 nautical miles and are equipped with ground-to-air and anti-submarine missiles. Pakistan will get these weapons between 2021-23. The Chinese Yuan class submarine to Pakistan is one of the most peaceful submarines in the world. Pakistan will get 4 of these 8 years in 2023.
