It is responsible for Pakistan's 1,046 kilometres (650.0 mi) coastline along the Arabian Sea and the defence of important harbours. It is a modern and highly dependable force that operates a wide range of ships ranging from cruisers to destroyers as well as submarines. Navy day is celebrated on September 8 in commemoration of the Indo-Pakistani War of 1965.
