The vessels are made by the Chinese state-owned Hudong Zhonghua Shipyard, and the deal for all four ships was inked by June 2018. The steel-cutting ceremony for the second Type 054A frigate for the Pakistan Navy (PN) was held in China on 19 December 2018, marking the beginning of construction of the vessel at the shipyard in Shanghai.

The Hudong Zhonghua Shipyard held the launch ceremony for the ship at Shanghai on Sunday with top official and naval officers attending the function. The same day the ship set for her new home in Pakistan.

A local news site ifeng.com reported, “It is worth noting that the 054A/P was purchased by Pakistan as the successor to the F-22P frigate, and the F-22P frigate is an export model developed by China on the basis of the 053H3 frigate. China has been working hard to promote the Type 054A frigate to the international market”.
