In a recent development, Turkey has followed up on its previous decision of 2019 to equip the Pakistani submarines with its torpedo countermeasure systems.
The Zargana Torpedo Countermeasure System for the Pakistan Navy’s Agosta 90B-class submarines has passed factory acceptance tests, according to Turkish defense manufacturer Aselsan.
The test clears the way for installation aboard the French-built submarine as part of a mid-life upgrade deal agreed in 2016 with the Turkish firm STM for three Agosta submarines in Pakistan.
The modified PNS Hamza has been delivered, according to Naval News. The site also alleged that the modernization of an undisclosed second submarine is complete, citing OSINT reports. The PNS Saad, the third, will be equipped with the Zargana.
