Second Batch of Chinese Made C13B Corvettes for Bangladesh Enter Production

A steel cutting ceremony took place August 9 at the China Shipbuilding & Offshore International Company (CSOC)'s Wuchang Shipyard in Wuhan, for the second batch of C13B Corvettes in presence of the Bangladesh Navy Chief of Naval Staff Admiral Nizamuddin Ahmed. The two corvettes will join BNS Shadhinota (F111) and BNS Prottoy (F112) which joined the Bangladesh Navy at the beginning of 2016. The C13B-class of corvette shares many similarities with the PLAN's Type 056 Jiangdao class (on which it is based).
