    Russia to buy BrahMos-A cruise missiles for its Su-30SM fighters

    The Russian armed forces are interested in buying the BrahMos cruise missiles, which were developed jointly with India, for equipping its Sukhoi Su-30SM fighters. Negotiations with the Russian side might begin in 2017 after testing of the Indian Su-30MKI fighters with the BrahMos missile is completed, a military-diplomatic source told Tass news agency today.

    “The new missile strike system – a plane plus a missile – will be first of all made operational with the Indian Air Force. After that the Russian Air Force, which is very interested, may buy the system,” the source said at the Army 2016 forum.

    The Indian Air Force fighter with a demonstrator of the BrahMos missile’s air-launched version performed the first flight in summer 2016. The first aircraft launches of the missile are expected to take place before the year end. India plans to equip three regiments of the Su-30MKI fighters with the updated missiles. The Indian military currently have in service the missile’s ground and sea-launched versions. The Su-30SM multifunctional fighter is an upgrade the export Su-30MKI version.

    It was improved in line with the Russian Defence Ministry’s requirements regarding the armaments, radar, communications, IFF transceiver systems and other equipment. The first contracts on the supply of the Su-30SM fighters to the Russian army were concluded in 2012.

    India-Russia to Step Up Talks on Co-Production of Kamov Helicopters

    Post  Pinto on Sat Sep 10, 2016 9:17 pm

    India and Russia will soon complete the final negotiation process for the co-production of Kamov choppers.

    In view of the upcoming visit of Russian President Putin for the BRICS Summit and the India-Russia Summit level talks, the Indian Defense Ministry is busy giving a final shape to Indo-Russian defense projects. The Defense Ministry is in the process of finalizing the joint production of the choppers. India and Russia had already agreed on the deal to manufacture Kamov Ka-226 helicopters during the visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Moscow last December.

    The joint helicopter company is now expected to be incorporated and will later rope in a private sector partner to share work. India needs more than 200 Kamov choppers. Anil Ambani owned Reliance Industries or Pune based Kalyani Strategic Systems is likely to be private sector partner to manufacture the Kamov Ka-226 choppers. “As per the agreement, out of the 200 Kamov Ka-226 Light Utility Helicopters, the first 40 are to be made in Russia and the rest 160 will be made in India with transfer of technology and license for production. These light utility Kamov Ka-226 choppers will ultimately replace the Cheetah and Chetak helicopters.

    In fact, India wants to become an export hub for the Kamov Ka-226 choppers as several countries have shown their interest in buying this most efficient chopper. I think president Putin’s visit will definitely give a spur to Indo-Russian defense cooperation. India is still dependent on Russia for nearly 60 to 70 percent of its defense supplies and it will remain as such in the years to come despite our defense ties with US,” former spokesperson of the Defense Ministry and Wing Commander (Rtd) Praful Bakshi told Sputnik.

    India and Russia Reach Agreement Over 5th Generation Fighter Aircraft

    Post  Pinto on Mon Sep 12, 2016 6:38 pm

    India and Russia Reach Agreement Over 5th Generation Fighter Aircraft
    New Delhi and Moscow purportedly have finally agreed to a work-share agreement for the co-production of a new warplane.

    After repeated delays, India and Russia have agreed to a detailed work-sharing agreement for the joint production of design and production of a new fighter jet under the so-called joint Sukhoi/HAL Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft (FGFA) project, known in India as the Perspective Multi-role Fighter (PMF), according to Indian media reports.


    “From a preliminary document that was barely two dozen pages, we have agreed on a 650 page detailed plan that specifies exactly what all will be shared,” an unidentified Indian defense official told The Economic Times. A final contract is expected to be signed in early 2017.

    The talks between Indian and Russian defense officials were allegedly accelerated ahead of an Indian-Russian summit to be held in Goa on October 15. As I reported in January, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi failed to reach an agreement during a bilateral meeting in Moscow in December 2015.


    The FGFA/PMF project has been hampered by repeated delays since the start of the project in 2007 and the signing of a preliminary $295 million design contract in 2010. In 2015, Indian Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar decided to make one last push toward reaching an agreement with Russia. I explained:

    Delays were caused by New Delhi and Moscow disagreeing over many fundamental aspects of the joint development project including work and cost share, aircraft technology, as well as the number of aircraft to be ordered. After evaluating the first PAK FA T-50 prototype (the Russian prototype of the PMF), the Indian Air Force (IAF) wanted more than 40 changes addressing, among other things, perceived weaknesses in the plane’s engine, stealth, and weapon-carrying capabilities.

    Russia announced in late 2015 that it would only induct a squadron (18-24 aircraft) of PAK FA fighter aircraft, and procure additional Sukhoi Su-35 aircraft instead. The original deal involved Russia procuring 250 and India 144 aircraft at a cost of around $30 billion by 2022. As a result, India threatened to abandon the project in its entirety. Russia in turn made a number of concessions including an offer to cut down its financial contribution from $6 to $ 3.7 billion for three PAK FA T-50 prototypes and substantial technology transfers.

    Despite the agreeing on a work-share plan, problems with the FGFA/PMF project nevertheless will remain (See: “Russia Tests Components of New 6th Generation Fighter Jet on 5th Generation War Plane”):

    Russia’s defense industry is still facing technical (as well as financial) hurdles including designing a new engine for the aircraft, given that PAK FA prototypes are currently using engines also installed on Sukhoi Su-35S 4++ generation multi-role fighter jets, calling into question whether the PAK FA can genuinely be classified as an 5th generation aircraft

    As part of the effort to salvage the defense deal, Moscow has also agreed to let Indian test pilots fly the PAK FA T-50 prototype currently undergoing flight trials in Russia. Hundreds of flight tests have taken place over the last months and the Russian Air Force expects the first aircraft to be inducted into its ranks in 2017. Nevertheless, many senior officers in the IAF remain skeptical about the aircraft’s affordability and capabilities.

    India, Russia to close multi-billion dollar defence deals before summit

    Post  Pinto on Thu Sep 15, 2016 4:28 pm

    http://in.rbth.com/news/2016/09/15/...ion-dollar-defence-deals-before-summit_630169


    This could be a defining moment in India-Russia relations as by end of this year most of the ongoing defence deals could be concluded. The total value of these defence deals is in the billions of dollars, higher than any deals struck by India with western countries.

    An Indian delegation is leaving for Russia to negotiate contracts on some very important defence acquisitions. Government sources told to Sputnik that a high level delegation will leave for Russia in a few days to discuss some strategic purchases for its maritime security.

    Sources say that India would like to finalize a deal to lease some submarines from Russia. As the US refused to share technology for building a nuclear powered aircraft carrier, the delegation would also start the discussion for a super-carrier with Russia. Last week, Russia officially offered its latest nuclear aircraft carrier 'Shtorm' to India.

    Sources say that, India and Russia concluded two very important negotiations only last week. First, both nations agreed to license-build 200 twin-engine Kamov Ka-226T light multi-role helicopters and secondly, to jointly develop a Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft (FGFA). It is expected that the Design and Development contract for the FGFA will be signed during Russian President Vladimir Putin’s visit to India in October this year. India’s Defence Ministry expects the project will be completed in next 8-10 years.

    Russia to sign helicopter deal with India in 'near future'

    Post  Pinto on Tue Sep 27, 2016 6:53 pm

    MOSCOW: Russia is preparing to sign a joint venture agreement to build multi-task Kamov-226 helicopters in India soon, the state-owned manufacturer Russian Helicopter told Reuters.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin will travel to India in October for a bilateral meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

    Russian helicopters and state-owned arms exporter Rosoboronexport have been working with Indian state-run Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) for months to establish a joint venture to build the helicopters in India, the company said in emailed comments to Reuters.

    "From our side, we are ready to sign the agreement in the near future," Russian Helicopters said. The company, which is a part of Russian state conglomerate Rostec, would not comment on the details or timings of the deal.

    "It is a very important project for us, as we offer to our partners not only licensed assembly, but also unique technology transfer in the helicopter-building industry."

    The Kamov-226 helicopters can be put to military and civilian use. The agreement will also allow Russia and India to create new aviation equipment for export to other countries, Russian helicopters said.

    HAL did not respond to a request for comment. Rostec and Rosoboronexport declined to comment in response to Reuters questions about which deals would be signed during Putin's trip to India.

    A source close to the negotiations said there were currently no concrete plans to sign any weapon agreements in India in October.
    Delhi and Moscow announced plans to build Kamov helicopters in India a year ago. India would produce 140 of the helicopters and Russia the remaining 60, sources said.

    That's better, 40 built in Russia as quoted originally was quite low.
    Of course the engines will be non-Russian which makes the added value of the chopper for Russia quite low.

    The Russians were developing a more powerful engine that would improve high altitude performance.

    Considering the aircraft it is replacing in India such an engine option might be attractive to them too.

    There's nothing wrong with either of these aircraft per se.
    It's just that such acquisitions will add to the existing logistical nightmare that their Air Force is facing.

    India is naively but slowly moving away from Russia when it comes to military aircraft purchases. The list is already very long.

    None of the above US fighter will be bought, US may try its best, have a look below Russia-India defence contracts since 2000, At least 40b$ worth of Indo-Russian arms agreement are in advanced stage to be signed, Major share will be of FGFA and Su30MKI upgrade

    . The Indian share in Russian arms exports has increased, according to Sipri data, from 23.36% in 1995-2000 to 39.09% during 2011-15.

    India, Russia fast-track big-ticket defence deals for Putin-Modi summit

    Post  Pinto on Fri Oct 07, 2016 10:03 am

    A set of defence collaboration agreements are being finalized for signing at the India-Russia annual summit to be held alongside the BRICS summit, on October 15 and 16.


    India plans to sign several big-ticket defence deals with its traditional and strategic partner Russia during the annual summit between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on October 15-16, coinciding with the BRICS summit, in Goa.

    This is the third annual bilateral summit between Putin and Modi. The defence deals, worth billions of dollars, have long been discussed between the two countries. Officials are expediting the exchanges to ensure some agreements are ready for signing at the Goa bilateral summit.

    Both countries had begun negotiations on a number of defence cooperation projects during the 16th meeting of the Joint Working Group (JWG) on Indo-Russian Military-Technical Cooperation on September 7-8, in New Delhi. Reports indicate that substantive progress has been made on these projects, bringing the deals and pending projects “well on track.”

    According to sources, some of the most important stalled defence deals, may get the “green signal’ during the Putin-Modi summit. These include purchase of five S-400 ‘Triumph’ long-range air defence missile systems, worth $6 billion, an IL-78 multi-role tanker transport by India, the joint upgrading of the Sukhoi Su-30MKI fighters and Kamov-28 helicopters. The projects most likely to be finalized during the summit also include the long-awaited joint development of the fifth generation fighter aircraft (FGFA) worth over $20 billion, and the joint production of Kamov Ka- 26 light helicopters.

    India is reported to be still in talks with the Russian side on the purchase ofS-400 Triumph air defence systems. It may be recalled that under the chairmanship of Indian Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, the Defence Acquisition Council (DAC), the highest body that takes decisions on weapons purchasing, had cleared the purchase of S-400 air defence systems from Russia in December 2015. However, Russia is still awaiting the “final go-ahead” from India on the supply of the newest missile systems.

    Negotiations between New Delhi and Moscow on the deliveries of S-400 surface-to-air missile systems and on some other aspects of military-technical cooperation between the two countries are in progress, Pankaj Saran, India’s Ambassador to Russia, said recently.

    “There are many platforms for discussions and S-400 is one of them,” Saran said.

    If the deal on S-400s is signed, it will become the biggest defence deal between the two countries since 2001, when India reached agreement with Russia to buy 140 Su-30MKI fighter jets. India might also become the second country to possess S-400s. Russia signed an agreement with China in April 2015, for the delivery of the S-400s. Russia’s delivery of the cutting-edge missile systems to India, will strengthen its air defences along the borders with China and Pakistan.

    Discussions on the joint development of FGFA resumed earlier this year, after they were suspended over differences on the percentage of work- share in the research and development content between India and Russia. The preliminary agreement on the joint production of FGFA was signed in 2010, and a final agreement would release about $6 billion for joint development.

    Following a series of negotiations on technical details over the past few months, the two countries are now ready with a detailed work-share agreement, under which Russia will share new generation aircraft technologies as a part of a deal to produce more than 100 fighters in India.

    During the two-day meeting of the JWG of the Military-Technical Cooperation in September, Russia submitted a “technical-commercial proposal” to supply India with four multi-purpose frigates equipped with sensors and weapons, including BrahMos supersonic cruise missiles. Under the proposal, out of four frigates, two will be delivered from Russia, and the other two will be built in India. There are already six frigates, including three Talwar-class and three Teg-class frigates, with the Indian Navy.

    The JWG also discussed the issue of joint production of 200 Ka-226 twin engine multi-role helicopters. The deal on joint production of the Ka-226 helicopters in India under technology transfer from Russia, was signed during the visit of Prime Minister Modi to Moscow in December 2015. Sources said 60 helicopters would be supplied for assembly in India, while the remaining 140 will be manufactured in India. It is the first major project to be implemented under Indian government’s “Make in India” programme. The contract is estimated to cost over $1 billion.

    Russia and India have agreed to incorporate a new company in October for the joint production of Ka-226 helicopters, and the deal is expected to be signed during the coming summit, in Goa.

    Media reports in September also indicated that India is also interested in leasing a second nuclear- powered submarine from Russia. Negotiations for leasing another Akula-class submarine for about $1.5 billion, are already in the final stages.

    India’s only nuclear attack submarine, INS Chakra, was also leased from Russia in 2012 for 10 years for a price of $900 million. India is interested in a different and newer class of vessel. Officials have expressed hope that a deal may be signed very soon. Russia is also assisting India in building its indigenous nuclear submarines.

    The two countries have also made significant progress in the negotiations for the modernization of Su-30 MKI multi-role fighters and an agreement is planned to be signed very soon. Discussions have been going on for some time for upgrading the aircraft which was called “Super Sukhoi,” but the talks gained momentum recently in the run up to the Putin-Modi summit in Goa. The cost of the deal, in the range of $7 to 8 billion, is yet to be finalized, sources said.

    The military-technical cooperation between India and Russia is as an important pillar of the “privileged, special strategic partnership.” It is not merely a relationship of a “buyer and seller,” but works on complex joint research, designing, development and production projects, with participation of the Indian public and private sectors, and licensed production in India, thereby advancing the ‘Make in India’ programme.

    India to Acquire Advanced Russian S-400 System That Makes F-35’s Stealth Useless

    Post  Pinto on Sat Oct 08, 2016 10:38 pm

    The move would provide India a unique ability to secure its airspace against even the most sophisticated next generation stealth fighter jets, but is largely driven by an effort from New Delhi to prevent Russia from drifting into partnership with rival Pakistan.

    India and Russia are set to negotiate a major multi-billion dollar defense deal on the sidelines of the BRICS Summit next week as the government of Narendra Modi looks to reestablish its military and defense relationship with Moscow and prevent the Kremlin from drifting into partnership with their primary regional rival Pakistan reports Indian newspaper The Financial Express.

    The negotiations would call for India to acquire 5 S-400 'Triumf' long-range air defense missile systems, Kamov-28 helicopters and upgraded models of the Sukhoi 30-MKI elite fighter jet with estimates valuing the possible defense dealing at $6 billion and with the Modi government reportedly looking to expedite the transaction as Russia looks to expand its cooperation with Pakistan.

    The S-400 missile system in particular has raised eyebrows among a number of NATO countries with the system capable of destroying missiles, drones, and incoming fighter jets within a range of 250 miles (400 km) with analysts speculating that the advanced anti-aircraft system renders the F-35 fighter jet stealth technology utterly useless – the vaunted aircraft that the US spent $1.5 trillion on developing.

    The move towards reasserting the defense relationship with Russia also plays favorably for Moscow with concern that New Delhi may be drifting deeper into the US-axis of influence and would be a major step following the collapse of a previous defense agreement due to differences on the percentage of work-share in research and development with India ever looking to expand its indigenous defense market.


    Russia and India may also be looking to come to an agreement on naval defense systems as well with The Financial Express reporting that New Delhi may lease an Akula-class submarine from Russia for $1.5 billion to support India’s only nuclear submarine, the INS Chakra.

    Washington in recent months has looked to cut off Russia’s defense cooperation with New Delhi with leading US defense contractors, including Lockheed Martin, establishing deals for India to take the lead on the construction of a number of top US fighter jets, but it seems that the Modi government seems to be favoring a focus on diversifying the country’s defense relationships.

    This is all wrong and bull shit.
    Russia is being pulverized by sanctions from the west.
    It is clear that this son of fck PM that India has is trying to take advantage of this situation.

    It was extremely unfortunate that Russia took the responsibility of fighting the WEST ALL ALONE.
    Russia is fighting against goldman sachs, boeing, google, Clinton foundation , 1 million saudi - white house terrorists in E.U and Syria ALL ALONE WITHOUT ANYBODYS HELP.

    It is extremely unfortunate situation unfolding in the world.Russia does not have the reserve population to survive this sick and psycho attack from all western institutions.

    This is the time that MODI is taking advantage of Russia situation. That fuck of a cu#$ PM knows that Russian industries are in desperate condition.
    We have heard that even dollar-ruble payments conversion has been cancelled by U.S banks like citi , JPMorgan , Wells fargo and other local branches in E.U
    The only thing that India has that it has huge population reserve and their is no restrictions on U.S cash transfers to India.

    MODI (the fck) knows this ,, MODI is taking Russia by the balls. Russ India relations will never be true relations. S-400 is just a gimmick.
    Putin will never provide India with S-400 technology. Even if it does it will be not be before 2019 -2020 that the agreement entails.

    This agreement smacks of the bullshit that Indian leadership is only dependent on S-400 to protect it from Pakistan. Modi dreams that
    S-400 will protect him from Pak.. but who will protect him from Indian people thats the question ..

    Stealth frigates, missiles among big-ticket defence deals with Russia

    Post  Pinto on Fri Oct 14, 2016 7:04 am

    BRICS summit: The defence deals come in the backdrop of the first-ever joint military exercises between Russia and Pakistan on Pakistani soil after the Uri terror attacks.

    India and Russia are expected to ink defence deals worth billions of dollars during the meeting in Goa on Saturday between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Vladimir Putin, on the sidelines of the BRICS summit. They include the procurement from Russia of four stealth frigates and five units of the S-400 anti-aircraft system, and the announcement of a joint venture for the manufacture of 200 Kamov-226T helicopters in India.

    “India and Russia have come back to a point where we are making a significant investment in the relationship with Moscow. The S-400 procurement is an example of our commitment to the relationship. We might have a better relationship with the US but it doesn’t change the content of our relationship with Moscow,” top government sources told The Indian Express.

    Sources confirmed that the deal would be worth billions of dollars but did not provide an overall estimate — the missile systems alone may cost $4.5 bn.

    The defence deals come in the backdrop of the first-ever joint military exercises between Russia and Pakistan on Pakistani soil after the Uri terror attacks. India had expected the exercise to be rescheduled but New Delhi understands that the Russian relationship with India remains “strong and unaffected” by Moscow’s engagement with Islamabad, said sources.

    The deal for four Admiral Grigorovich-class (Project 11356) guided-missile stealth frigates will involve the direct supply of two vessels from Russia while another two will be made in India. The shipyard for making these frigates in India will be chosen by a competitive process, sources said.

    The 3,620-tonne Admiral Grigorovich-class, which can be fitted with BrahMos missiles, is a derivative of the six Talwar-class frigates that Russia built for the Indian Navy between 2003 and 2013.

    India will also sign an inter-government agreement for the supply of S-400 LRSAM anti-aircraft systems, which is one of the most advanced air defence options available and capable of destroying missiles, drones and incoming fighter jets within a range of 400 km.

    The approval for procuring the S-400 missile systems was given by the Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar-led Defence Acquisitions Council (DAC) last December. India will be the second international buyer of the missile system after China.

    Sources said that Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) will be the Indian partner for the JV to manufacture the light multipurpose Kamov-226T helicopters. An Indian private defence manufacturer may be involved at a later stage, said sources.

    Kamov helicopters had undergone testing in India as part of the Reconnaissance and Surveillance Helicopter (RSH) acquisition programme, which was cancelled by the defence ministry in 2014. An agreement for these helicopters was signed by the two countries during Prime Minister Modi’s visit to Moscow last December.

    “The Kamov helicopter is a new model and the first real ‘Make in India’ project in a way. The same is the case with the stealth frigates,” said sources.

    However, no progress is expected on the Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft (FGFA) being jointly developed by the two countries, which remains a “sore point” for Moscow, sources said. The R&D contract for the FGFA is not expected to be signed during the meet, as India is yet to make up its mind on various issues related to the fighter aircraft.

    According to sources, the two sides have also “progressed through constant engagement in exploring new ways” to the problem of spare parts for military equipment of Russian origin. Nearly two-thirds of equipment with the armed forces is of Russian and Soviet origin. For instance, the serviceability of the Russian-origin Sukhoi fighter aircraft, the main workhorse of the Indian Air Force, has been a glaring issue with barely 50 per cent of the fleet being airworthy at any given time.

    “Besides showing our commitment by buying new equipment, we have to also keep the older ones running. HAL has worked out a detailed list of spares for Sukhois. The Russians have understood our requirement and will designate an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) or agency empowered to handle the supply of spares. This will be a long-term arrangement,” said sources.

    Air defence system, frigates, choppers: What all in India-Russia security deals

    Post  Pinto on Sat Oct 15, 2016 6:23 pm

    India and Russia on Saturday signed big-ticket defence deals, including an agreement for the game-changer S-400 Air Defence System and Kamov helicopters and to replace the existing aging fleets and build new frigates.

    “The agreements on manufacturing Kamov 226T helicopters; constructions of frigates; and acquisition and building of other defence platforms are in synergy with India’s technology and security priorities,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Saturday.

    Here are the deals sealed:

    Ka-226T helicopters -- Kamov 226T choppers will replace the aging Cheetah and Chetak choppers. Kamov is a light multipurpose helicopter designed for work in difficult conditions like high mountains, hot climate and marine areas. It allows for reconnaissance, targeting and monitoring of transportation.

    It also boasts of incredibly precise hovering ability, excellent maneuverability and high safety standards, and has proved to perform better than its western counterparts in Indian heat.

    The chopper is equipped with two Arrius 2G1 engines made by the Turbomeca company. The passenger version of the chopper can carry up to seven people, while the transport version can carry one tonne of cargo inside the fuselage or via an external sling.
    The deal is worth more than $1 billion. The helicopters will be made by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) with Russian cooperation.

    Frigates --

    An inter-governmental agreement for four frigates through partnership between Russian and Indian shipyards was signed.

    While two frigates will come from Russia, two others will be constructed at an Indian shipyard with Russian cooperation.

    The frigates will be improved versions of Krivak or Talwar class stealth frigates, and the deal is worth more than $3 billion.

    S-400 Air Defence System --

    The over $5-billion deal to purchase the long-range air defence missile system, which has the capability to destroy incoming hostile aircraft, missiles and even drones at ranges of up to 400 km, will prove to be a game changer for India.

    The system is currently deployed in Syria, where Russia is targeting the Islamic State.

    Besides, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also announced that annual military industrial conferences will be held by India and Russia, which will allow stakeholders on both sides to institute and push collaboration.

    India, Russia ink pacts that will lead to defence deals worth Rs 72,000 crore (10.5 B $)

    Post  Pinto on Sat Oct 15, 2016 7:28 pm

    HIGHLIGHTS

    * India has inked pacts with Russia to acquire advanced air defence missile systems, stealth frigates as well as jointly produce light-utility helicopters

    * The three projects are collectively worth an estimated $10.5 billion (over Rs 72,000 crore)

    NEW DELHI: Correcting the pronounced tilt towards the US in defence deals over the last decade, India on Saturday inked pacts with Russia to acquire advanced air defence missile systems, stealth frigates as well as jointly produce light-utility helicopters. The three projects are collectively worth an estimated $10.5 billion (over Rs 72,000 crore).

    The two pacts or inter-governmental agreements (IGAs) for five new-generation Russian S-400 Triumf missile systems and four upgraded Teg or Grigorivich-class frigates, apart from the joint venture to produce 200 Kamov-226T light utility helicopters, are not actual contracts as yet. That will take some time, with the nitty-gritties and final costs to be sealed through further negotiations in the days ahead.

    But Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Russian President Vladimir Putin, in whose presence the pacts were inked in Goa, were all gung-ho about the reinforcement of the bilateral strategic partnership "to lay deeper defence ties" in the years ahead. "Agreements on manufacturing Kamov-226T helicopters; constructions of frigates; and acquisition and building of other defence platforms are in synergy with India's technology and security priorities," said Modi.

    In terms of sheer strategic value, India's acquisition of the five S-400 systems for over $5.5 billion is clearly going to be game-changer. TOI was the first to report in October 2015 about India's decision to go in for the S-400 systems, which basically have three kinds of missiles that can fly at supersonic and hypersonic speeds to intercept all kinds of targets at ranges from 120 to 400-km.

    Defence sources said the S-400 systems, with three meant for the western front with Pakistan and the other two for the eastern one with China, can shoot down Chinese or Pakistani fighters while they are flying in their own airspaces.

    India will be the second customer for the S-400 (called SA-21 Growler by NATO), with China slated to get the anti-aircraft\anti-missile systems under a $3 billion deal with Russia in 2014. A defence source said, "Most of the negotiations for our S-400 systems are over ... the contract should be inked among the first to be inked."

    The $4 billion pact for the four 4,000-tonne guided-missile stealth frigates also has some strategic content to it though it is not acknowledged in public. India's quest to lease a second nuclear-powered submarine (the first INS Chakra came in 2012) for around $1.5 billion from Russia has been linked by Moscow to New Delhi's agreement to acquire the frigates lying half-constructed at the Yantar Shipyard due to a cash-crunch.


    India will also have to acquire Zorya gas-turbine engines for the frigates from Ukraine, which is bitterly opposed to Russia as of now. "While two of the frigates will come from Russia, with a faster delivery time, the other two will be built here. It will take time for the contract with the selected Indian shipyard to be finalized," said a source.


    As for the Kamov-226T choppers, the IGA for it was inked during Modi's visit to Moscow in December last year. It's only now the joint venture for the project, with the memorandum of association, share-holders agreement and the like, has been inked between defence PSU Hindustan Aeronautics (with majority 50.5% stake) and Russian Rostec State Corporation.

    But the different pacts do show that Russia is reasserting its numero uno status in the Indian defence market. It was after the 1999 Kargil conflict that India began to increasingly turn to countries like US, Israel, France and UK so as to not put all its eggs in the Russian basket. As the strategic clinch with the US got tighter, Washington alone bagged Indian defence deals worth $15 billion since 2007.

    Though India still remains slightly anxious with Russia for not sticking to delivery schedules, jacking up costs mid-way, putting hurdles in technology transfer and unreliable spares support, New Delhi knows only Moscow will help it with "strategic projects" like nuclear-powered submarines or the S-400 systems.

    To me every intrestring would be how Russia could attract more cooperation in Hi-Tech sphere? India having 15% middle class population would make 170mlns market.... more than double sizing for Russian companies comparing with home market.

    The most credible deal on this Putin Visit to India has been taking over of Indian oil com Essar by Rosneft for 13 b $ in all cash deal. Unless we increase economic cooperation between india and russia our relationship is going to be limited to defence deals

    Russia back with all guns blazing

    Post  Pinto on Sun Oct 16, 2016 12:41 pm

    After losing some share of India’s defence space to the U.S. and other countries in recent years, Russia regained its footing with the agreements signed on Saturday.

    Three agreements, worth $10 billion, were announced after the meeting between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Russian President Vladimir Putin. They are inter-governmental agreements (IGAs) for five S-400 Triumf air defence systems and four stealth frigates and a stakeholder agreement for a joint venture to make Kamov-226T helicopters in India.

    Designed by the Almaz-Antey Central Design Bureau, the S-400 Triumf, referred to as SA-21 Growler by NATO, is considered one of the most advanced long-range defence systems in the world. It can tackle all airborne targets at a range of up to 400 km.

    For India, this means Pakistani aircraft can be tracked even when they are in their airspace. The five systems, to be operated by the Indian Air Force, will cost over Rs.39,000 crore. India is the second export customer, after China which last year signed a $3-billion agreement for six systems that are expected to be delivered in 2017.

    India and Russia also signed an inter-governmental agreement for four additional Krivak or Talwar class stealth frigates, which are expected to cost upwards of $3 billion. Two ships will be built in Russia and the other two in India with Russian assistance. India had earlier procured six frigates of the same class in two different batches. It has been very pleased with the performance of the 4,000-tonne frigates which packed a lot of fire-power given their size. The ships are armed with the BrahMos supersonic cruise missiles. But it is surprising why India is going for additional frigates from Russia, when it is designing and building much bigger stealth ships.

    Both sides have been discussing the agreement for some time, but it was delayed as India insisted on building the ships through the ‘Make in India’ route. The other reason for delay was Ukraine’s refusal to supply Russia with engines which are built by Zorya Nashproekt after the crisis in Crimea. However, the issue was sorted out, and Ukraine has no reservations about supplying engines to India.

    Hindustan Aeronautics Limited and Rostec State Corporation of Russia signed an agreement to set up a joint venture that will make Kamov-226T utility helicopters in India. Under the agreement, which is worth over $1 billion, at least 200 helicopters will be produced. They will replace the obsolete Cheetah and Chetak fleets of the armed forces. After induction, the Kamov helicopters, capable of operating at 20,000 feet, will help to maintain the forward posts on the Siachen glacier.

    India is still not done with Russia for its defense needs as following items are still be finalized in near future perhaps in next financial year because of fresh funds available next year

    1. Sukhoi-FGFA

    2. 2nd nuclear sub deal

    3. Up gradation of SU-30MKI

    4. Transport aircrafts both medium and large

    5. More T 90MS tanks
