The Pakistani Navy will receive guided-missile frigate USS McInerney from the US by the end of August 2010.

VSE Corporation has been contracted by the US Navy to provide ship repairs for McInerney and support training for 248 Pakistani crew members until the ship is handed over to Pakistan.

The company’s ship training and assistance team will conduct the training for Pakistan’s crew in January 2011, enabling them to operate the ship and equipment safely.

Upon completion of final evaluation by the US Navy afloat training group, the crew will sail the ship home to Karachi, Pakistan.
