Credible reports suggests that Pakistan has chosen to pick U214 German submarines for its next generation submarine requirement. The deal is currently in negotiation, and both sides are working out a deal worth up to billions of dollars to the German company.

The Defence Production Ministry and its technical evaluators seem to have rejected the French Marlin, French Scorpene (ordered by the Indian Navy) for not being able to meet the requirements of the Pakistan Navy.

French have hard vouched to sale the submarine to Pakistan, including connecting with the top officials in the government of Pakistan to sell its submarine. It also agreed to setup other different infrastructures and take part to develop country's economy.
