  1. I was wondering about Pakistan’s shipbuilding capability- D186 is a British relic. I think D186 is also 100% of Pakistan’s destroyer fleet. Wikipedia:

    PNS Shah Jahan (D186), the former British Type 21 frigate HMS Active (F171) launched in 1972; acquired by the Pakistan Navy in 1994 and classed as a Tariq-class destroyer; in active service, As of February 2009[ref]

    1. Type 21’s were very wet ships. Lots of white water over the fo’c’s’le and plenty of beer on tap in the ratings mess. Given that they are now with the PN I’m assuming only the former holds true!
