Pakistan Navy Overseas deployments and exercises

Looks like Pakistan Navy has some nice vessels. What is the story behind that sailing ship? Is it historical?

The TSYT's ships are two-masted brigs, with the rig designed by Michael Willoughby. The hulls were built in Germany as cruise ships for the West Indies, designed to carry masts and sails and use them from time to time, but not to be serious sailing vessels.
This project was cancelled and the part-finished hulls were bought in 1997 by the TSYT. They were then modified by Appledore Shipbuilders to take the strains of a full sailing rig and to improve their sailing properties, including the addition of a new deeper keel holding fifty tons of ballast.

Pakistan Navy's fleet replenishment tanker, PNS MOAWIN (A-39), participated in the bilateral naval Exercise TURGUTREIS – VIII & conducted training with the Turkish Navy's Ada-class corvette, TCG HEYBELIADA (F 511), & Kılıç-class FAC, TCG ATAK (P 337), in the Mediterranean.



Pakistan Navy's Replenishment Tanker, PNS NASR (A-47), has returned to its homeport of Karachi this week after a month-long overseas deployment to Türkiye & Syria on a Humanitarian Assistance & Disaster Relief (HADR) Mission.
Pakistan 🇵🇰 Navy has confirmed its participation in LIMA 2023 , taking place in Malaysia from 23-27 May.
The recently commissioned Type 054A/P (Tughril Class) Frigate, PNS SHAH JAHAN (F-264), will represent and also make its first public appearance at LIMA 2023.

The Pakistan Navy PNS Tipu Sultan made a visit to Sri Lanka, where it was warmly welcomed by Pakistani diplomatic representatives and officers from the host navy upon its arrival at the port of Colombo.

During the visit, the commanding officer of the ship engaged in fruitful discussions on matters of professional significance with civil and military officials from Sri Lanka.

This visit of PNS Tipu Sultan to Sri Lanka, along with its participation in the naval exercise, will serve to strengthen the already cordial relationship between these two nations.

As the visit drew to a close, a joint exercise took place involving the ships from both countries.
