After 8 Subs from China 3 Augusta 90 will get upgraded will also get upgraded but Pakistan may not retire be retired 2 Augusta 70 it has they may get further upgraded. Also I expect Pakistan to go for few more AIP Submarines most likely from Europe.
U214

Boomers are SSBN, SSN are attack and yes they can carry CMs.

Type 39A are SSks, did you mean type 93 as SSNs ? or smaller version of Type-93 ?

If indeed there is type 39A++ then its a news to likely many of Chinese Navy's followers.

6 type39A, 2 type39A++ (smaller SSN with cruise missile launch capabilities)
We ordered the Submarines in 2015. If we had ordered Type 39 there is no way in hell that it would have taken so long. Even if we had asked for major changes to match our needs still there is no chance of Submarines taking this long. The Submarines which we have ordered are some new Type. Thailand ordered 3 Type 39 two years after us and they are about to get theirs.

Type 039A (Yuan)<> Type 39 (Song).
Plus it has a lot of input from PN as well.
