PNS Ghazi (SS 479) was a United States-built submarine that was leased to Pakistan in 1963. It was the first submarine to be operated by the Pakistan Navy and saw action in the 1965 and 1971 wars between India and Pakistan. The submarine could be armed with up to 28 torpedoes and, in later years, was re-fitted in Turkey for mine-laying capability.
