Haibat Class Patrol Craft [PRC Hegu / Houku]

Four Hegu-class patrol craft, a Chinese variant of the Komar with a steel hull instead of wooden, were sold to Pakistan in 1981.

As of mid-2002 sources disagree as to the status of this class, with some reporting all four units in service, while others report only three units, and others report that all four have been withdrawn.
