STM, which has signed the first and only submarine modernization export of Turkey, has modernized the second ship of the AGOSTA 90B Class submarines owned by Pakistan with modern and state-of-the-art systems and delivered it to the Pakistan Navy.
STM Defense Technologies Engineering and Trade Inc., one of the leading companies of the Turkish defense industry, has left behind another important milestone in its export success. In the project where three AGOSTA 90B class submarines were modernized by STM, the second ship PNS/M KHALID (S-137) was delivered to the Pakistan Naval Forces Command with a ceremony.
Submarines are being modernized with the most modern systems
The entire sonar suite, periscope systems, Rudder Console, Converters, Seawater Cooling System, Information Distribution System, Command Control system, Radar and Electronic Support Systems of the submarines are being replaced. Thus, within the scope of modernization, additional features are gained beyond the existing possibilities of submarines. At the same time, systems belonging to many domestic and national companies, especially ASELSAN and HAVELSAN, are also exported within the scope of the project. Structural modifications, materials used and workmanship on submarine vessels required for submarine modernization are certified by the international classification society DNV (Dat Nordske Veritas).
Agosta90B Accurately Hit the Target
The first Agosta 90B Class Submarine PNS/M HAMZA (S-139), which STM modernized and brought to the Pakistan Navy, sank a decommissioned frigate with a torpedo shot during the SEASPARK-2022 Tactical Exercise.
⚓ Our country's first submarine modernization export, pride day in Pakistan Agosta 90B Project 💪

Smiley: Next is the third submarine
STM General Manager Özgür Güleryüz stated the following in his assessment on the subject:
“We are transferring our engineering experience and technologies to friendly and brotherly countries on the way we set out for the defense of our country. Pakistan Agosta 90B Class Submarines Modernization Project is one of the most important examples of STM's competence in national and international submarine production and modernization.
While exporting the systems of many domestic and national companies with the AGOSTA 90B Modernization, we continue our work in Pakistan to complete the modernization of the third and last submarine. I congratulate our stakeholders and employees who contributed to the project, and wish the PNS/M KHALID submarine, which started its duty in blue waters, good luck to the Pakistani Navy, a friendly and brotherly country.”
