As for OPVs we are building the indigenous Khulna class OPVs, I posted a link in my earlier posts.
Is the F-22B contract signed? I can find info on the LPC deal, but nothing on F-22B contract. In fact, you can actually even see info on LPC on Chinese shipbuilding website.

My sources have been unable to confirm the signing of the deal at the moment, so I don't know either.

China how ever did come out as the lowest bidder for a tender for 2 corvettes and two Chinese companies have submitted 2 different designs, BN will choose the one they fill most suit their needs.


EDIT- If by LPC you mean large patrol craft (missile) then you are talking about the 2 corvettes they are same thing. I thought you meant Landing patrol craft, my bad.

yes, I was referring to large patrol craft. From the Chinese sources, they have already started working the project.

This the first time the BN is going a CARAT exercise with the US. This signifies rising ties between the two nations navies.

The chief of the Bangladesh Navy is going to China to attend the inauguration ceremony for the construction of the two LPCs.

Navy chief off to China

There have been really high level military delegations off to China in the last few months. The Chief of the Bangladesh army visited China a few weeks ago and before that the Chief of the air force.

Such visits are very common, but this time the visit of the 3 heads of services happened in short proximity of one another. There have been reports of huge hardware deals being inked at these meetings, but nothing concrete yet.

Interesting, we saw those PN FAC photos a couple of days ago. I guess the LPC photos should come out pretty soon too.

The LPC and the corvette deals are not the same, my mistake, sorry....

here is a proper compilation of a proper list of procurement of the Bangladesh navy made this year alone-

2 guided missile LPCs

2 Do.228NG MPAs

2 AW 109 helicopters

8 high speed boats

1 oil tanker

1 early radar system

more QW-2 systems

more C-704 systems

More OTOMAT-MK-II

http://www.mof.gov.bd/en/budget/11_1...TJLuZ5xtAQmRx9

Additionally-

A tender for 2 corvettes have been won by China
5 indigenous OPVs are being built(Khulna class)
1 locally manufactured hydro-graphic surveillance vessel

Also a deal for 3 frigates will be dome by the end of this year or the starting of the next, they will probably be ex-PLAN frigates and will be highly modernized. More maritime helicopters are on the cards. Modernization of the FACMs continue as do the navy's aspirations for a secure combat data link. The navy also continues to strengthen their plan to get a sub by 2019.

As for the F-22Bs.....it has been extremely frustrating, the deal seems to be stagnant and no news of progress has been heard of.

On the bright side, my sources keep on telling me to expect surprises this year so I have my fingers crossed.


All I got so far, will post more news when I get them.

.

It seems we will not be getting the C-704s but C-705 SSMs instead, a decision I applaud. Also chances are C-05s might be assembled in BD. The navy is also currently under the process of building an asembly plant for C-802s.
