The Pakistan Naval Strategic Forces Command , known as PNSFC, is a one of the three major unified command of the Pakistan Armed Forces responsible for the defence and protection of naval and naval-nuclear assets in the country.[1] The command was commissioned on 24 June 2004, at Naval Combatant Headquarters (NHQ) after the concept was approved by then-Chief of Naval Staff Admiral Shahid Karimullah.[1] The Naval Command is responsible for operational planning, directives, and deployment of nuclear weapons on its naval vessels.[1]

The Naval Command provides vision, leadership, doctrinal guidance, resources and oversight to ensure component naval special operations forces are ready to meet the operational requirements of combatant commander.[1] It is a vital part of the Pakistan Strategic Forces Command, and directly reports to Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee.[1]
