@Zulu
PN RAS 72 Sea Eagle is equipped with a long-range, active electronically scanned array (AESA) multimode radar, as well as electro-optic/infrared (EO/IR) sensors to deliver aerial, maritime, and ground surveillance, according to RAS.

The platform also features an acoustic processing system, sonobuoy launchers, a broadband satellite communications system, an electronic support measures suite, a self-protection suite, and two weapon hard-points, enabling anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and maritime patrol capabilities. The PN’s two RAS 72 Sea Eagles also feature Aerodata’s mission management system, called AeroMission, for ASW.

RAS 72
Multi-Role Aircraft


RAS’ experience in maintaining and modifying the ATR family, in combination with German engineering and state-of-the-art mission equipment from leading OEMs, led to the development of a reliable multi-role special mission aircraft. The unique performance and low operating cost of the ATR 72, along with its flexibility and high degree of customization, make the RAS 72 a valuable asset and the perfect platform for many airborne missions.

Performance
Maximum Cruise Speed250 KTS465 km/h
Maximum Operational Altitude25,000 ft7,620 m
Maximum Endurance (at 5,000 ft)+9.00 hat 23,000 kg
Take-off Distance (MTOW, SL, AEO, ISA)3,839 ft1,170 m

The Sea Eagle is a cost effective multi-role maritime patrol aircraft (MPA) with anti-submarine warfare capabilities and equipped with state-of-the-art technology for superior situational awareness. The Sea Eagle is a variant of the twin-engine turboprop, regional aircraft ATR 72 series.
In the offered configuration, the aircraft is equipped with a long-range multimode radar and EO/IR sensor to deliver aerial, maritime and ground surveillance. Moreover, the aircraft features an acoustic processing system with sonobuoy launchers, a self- protection suite and two weapon hard points, enabling unique maritime and anti-submarine warfare capabilities.
The installed mission systems and sensors are managed by the Aerodata AeroMission system. The AeroMission can display feeds from the installed sensors on each control station and has a sensor fusion algorithm, providing the onboard crew with comprehensive situational awareness.
The first of the ATR-72 twin-engine turboprops converted into MPAs was delivered to the Pakistan Navy in the second quarter of 2018, while the second aircraft was delivered in June 2019.

Performance
  • Mission management system “AeroMission”
  • AESA 360° multimode radar system
  • Two weapon carriers
  • Sonobuoy launching system
  • Broadband satcom system
  • Tactical data link capabilities
  • Self-protection suite and electronic support
  • Measures systems


“The aircraft has been retrofitted with state-of-the-art weapons and sensors that will substantially enhance our client’s air operations. The RAS Sea Eagle is the first aircraft in its class offering both MPA and ASW capabilities, along with unparalleled performance, superior reliability and low operating cost.”

So how many PN will have as per deal ?
I believe PN acquired 4 ATR airframes. this is the third being converted. Potentially we can get another converted later on.
These should NOT be considered full blown ASW aircraft but ASW lite. They lack MAD & sonobouys. However with Sea Spray radar, surface detection of snorkeling submarines can be done and it can deploy torpedoes and ASM. Potentially PN can use its stockpile of AM39 Exocets with these for surface warfare.
