well yes BN is in need of some good frigades and subs,i hope and prey they get the best, because of the geopolitical situation BN must be strong against any western aggression and must avoid blockade in war situations.I usually get a bit emotional when someone reminds me of 1971 war scenario,it must not happen again for Bangladesh.

One can easily google the media sources. While the government has decided to buy two used frigates, nothing is final. The devil is in the details of a sale, whether new or used. The trick is to finalize a purchase or sale.
