BN is also aiming to get ships from the west, C-802 is less likely to be on those.
aren't C-802 NATO compliant ? We shot one of those from an ex-Dutch frigate and the Luursen FPB-57s

Maintenance cost of the ships quadratically increases after 10th year. The increase becomes dramatic after 30 years. (Very rough numbers, assuming the expected life is 40)

I am well aware of this, but never know the exact numbers, thanks for the info.

Theoretically every weapon system can be invidually used as decoupled from the CMS or command structure, thus they are platform agnostic as long as they fit.

But this is not practical, maybe applied for old vessels that is switching from analogue to digital partially, or receiving an upgrade in patches but not with a solid MLU in both cases with limited service time remained.

Getting this in common for all future vessels or just for the LPCs?

I don't think they will only order for two vessels if they have chosen this one. Expecting them on our new frigate and at least on four more new LPC. Even on BNS BB.

Confirmed?
According to a report published on 19th November, Bangladesh bought MLRS, AShM and air defense system from Turkey in June.

Well i am just sharing what i read in the newspaper. But i am always suspicious about any news (thanks to certain Bangladeshi defense website) until i see further confirmation from more sources or DGDP, ISPR, MoD, PM or any govt official.

Looks like a retired Brigadier General also confirmed the news about AShM on 4th September. I got another news few days ago which kinda backs this news too. I am dying to share it here but before that i must try to verify it.

That is the news related to G2G contract(s) apart from these RfPs?

It was mentioned twice, once in ASFAT & ARES MoU on OPV / FAC projects for export, another one by TAIS Director in 10th Naval Systems Seminar.

The earlier one seems to mature since it was mentioned as 'the project was expected to go full speed ahead thanks to the G2G contract signed', the latter one sounds to be under negotiation, or near to completion although he might not have told this in the presentation.

Four possible reasons for cancelling the tender.
  • Financial problem
  • Not getting enough suitable proposals/responses
  • Got better offer like the news about Ada class here. KSY is expanding to build 3k tons ship.
  • Lacking the capability to build them since KSY is upgrading it's old slipway which can dock-undock 700 tons vessel max. LPC's requirement was minimum 700 tons. Though I think DEW could've done that in it's old open space.
