Chinese media reports have outlined a construction program involving
- six of eight S-20 variants of the Type-039A/Type-041 submarine under negotiation;
- four "Improved F-22P" frigates equipped with enhanced sensors and weaponry (possibly including the HQ-17 surface-to-air missile developed from the Russian Tor 1/SA-N-9); and
- six Type-022 Houbei stealth catamaran missile boats,
to be built by Pakistan's state-owned shipbuilder Karachi Shipyard and Engineering Works (KSEW).
The reports indicate Type-022 construction may be delayed by the ongoing Azmat fast attack craft building program, but also highlight a significant expansion of KSEW's facilities.
