  • Agosta-class submarine is a class of diesel-electric fast-attack submarine developed and constructed in France.
  • Back in March, Turkish firm STM signed a contract to enhance capabilities of Pakistan Navy’s Agosta 90B Submarines.

The first vessel in the Pakistan Naval Forces 'Agosta 90B Class Submarine Modernization Project' will be launched in coming days.

Murat ?kinci, STM's general manager, told Anadolu Agency that Pakistan granted the 'Agosta 90B Class Submarine Modernization Project' to a Turkish company since it had confidence in the progress and engineering experience that Turkey has achieved in this regard. "Hopefully, by the end of this month, we are will complete the outfitting of our first ship and launch it and begin its tests, including diving tests," he said.

Back in March, Turkish firm STM signed a contract to enhance capabilities of Pakistan Navy’s Agosta 90B Submarines. The company was to modernize four Pakistani submarines.

The Agosta-class submarine is a class of diesel-electric fast-attack submarine developed and constructed in France to succeed the Daphné submarines.

"Pakistan also aims to modernize three submarines in its inventory. We can clearly say that we will sign the contract as a result of the success of the first vessel. We do not think there will be any setbacks here," informed Murat.

As per the report, KA??F, the geographic information system (GIS) software developed by Turkish weapons manufacturer HAVELSAN, is being used in the infrastructure of the Command and Control System of Pakistan's submarine. Meanwhile, the Sonar Integrated Submarine Command Control System (SEDA), developed by HAVELSAN, is also being integrated into the Agosta 90B submarine, making it Turkey's first export item in this field as well.

Moreover, ASELSAN's Zargana Torpedo Countermeasures System has also been used in the modernized Agosta 90B submarine of the Pakistan Navy.
