- "πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ Type 21 frigates" - (Part 10 & final part = The sale of the remaining ships to the Pakistani Navy, and the Type 21 Club "Royal Navy Amazon Class Frigate Association") β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’ Photo caption - πŸ‡΅πŸ‡° PNS Shah Jahan (D186), the former πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ HMS Active (F171). -------------------------------------------- The six surviving Type 21 frigates were sold to Pakistan in 1993–1994. The class was renamed by the Pakistani Navy as the Tariq class, after the first vessel that was acquired, the PNS Tariq, formerly Ambuscade. Five ships remain in service, as of 2017, the PNS Badr was decommissioned in 2014. The frigates have had their Sea Cat launcher removed, as well as their Exocet missiles. Three of the ships had their Exocet missiles replaced by the more capable US-made Harpoon missile, the other three were fitted with the Chinese 6-cell LY-60N Hunting Eagle surface-to-air missile system. In the Pakistani Navy they are classified as Tariq-class destroyers. -------------------------------------------- The idea of an association of sorts had been bandied around since the sell off to the Pakistan Navy, and with ship Associations, Ardent, Antelope, Alacrity and Ambuscade already having ship Associations. It would be not until 2010, that like minded former crew members decided that a main Association should be formed, and with the naming of a new committee the first Reunion of the Type 21 Club was organised and successfully met at RBL Crownhill in Plymouth in October 2010. Since then every year, the 2nd weekend of October, former shipmates and Officers who served on these frigates meet once more. The Association is open to all former members of crew, families, ship workers (who had worked on the frigates) and Pakistan Naval crew members of the frigates now part of the Pakistan navy. #πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§Type21Frigates
