French naval company DCNS has won a contract to supply two Subtics combat management systems for Pakistan's Agosta 70 diesel-electric submarine fleet.

Subtics, the submarine tactical integrated combat system, integrates sensors and weapons, and can be retrofitted on boats of different manufacture, including those of Russian build.

Pakistan purchased the two DCNS built Agosta diesel-electric submarines in 1978 and has plans to add more modern boats to its fleet, according to the Defence News.

DCNS marketing manager for submarine combat systems Alain Cursat said the company had signed a contract in June 2010 for the modernisation of Agosta 70 boats.
