Turkey’s STM has signed an agreement with the state-owned defense contractor ASFAT for the supply of the main drive system of MILGEM Ada Class Corvettes being developed by Turkey for Pakistan.

According to the agreement, STM will deliver and will be responsible for the integration of the main propulsion systems of the MILGEM Corvettes, an indispensable component that powers the movement of a vessel.

In July 2018, the Pakistan Navy had signed an agreement with ASFAT to acquire 4 MILGEM-class ships to further consolidate its defensive capabilities. The deal is Turkey’s largest-ever single defense export deal with any country.
Under the deal, it was decided that 2 MILGEM-class ships will be constructed in Pakistan while 2 will be built in Turkey.
Earlier this month, Pakistan Navy had formally started the construction of the 2 MILGEM Corvettes at Karachi Shipyard and Engineering Works (KSEW), Pakistan Navy’s specialized shipbuilding division.
Turkish Navy had initiated the construction of 2 MILGEM Corvettes last month after a formal ceremony held in Istanbul.
2 MILGEM Corvettes will join the inventory of the Pakistan Navy in 2023 and the remaining 2 will join a year later.
The MILGEM Ada Class Corvette is a modern stealth patrol and anti-submarine warfare combatant naval ship.
MILGEM is a state-of-the-art surface platform equipped with the modern surface, subsurface, and anti-air weapons, sensors, and combat management systems.
MILGEM is a 326.8 feet long, 47.3 feet wide naval ship and can accommodate 106 naval personnel. It has a displacement capacity of 2,400,000 kg, a maximum range of 6,500 km, and a top speed of 56 km/h.​

How many Ships are we actually buying from Turkey in total
Wikipedia says 4 Jinnah Class Frigates 3000+Tones
and 4 Ada-class corvettes 2400+Tones
So thats a total of 8 ships from Turkey . Right ???
Another site says Jinnah class Frigates weigh 3000+Tones which are heavily upgraded Ada Class corvettes which originally weight 2400+ Tones.
So is Pak buying 4 Ada-class and 4 Jinnah class or Just 4 upgraded Ada-class ???

Only 4 ships which were ada class corvettes but extended with vls making it 3000 tones. .. 2 will be made in Turkey and 2 in Pakistan.. Wikipedia isn't an authentic source.

Due to transfer of tech these ada class corvettes are named as Jinnah class.
