Do you see any flFull blown ASW aircraft (as defined by you) in near future for PN.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.
If yes what will most practical option in this regards
