Pakistan received the first of two Chinese built Azmat fast patrol boats. The second Azmat will be built in Pakistan and more may follow after that. It depends on how well the first two do. The Azmats displace 560 tons, are 63 meters (206.6 feet) long, and are armed with eight C802A anti-ship missiles (range: 180 kilometers), one 76 mm cannon and one multibarrel 30mm cannon for anti-missile defense. These highly automated ships have a crew of 14 and cost $50 million each.
