    Two frigates of 11356 project to be finalized for Indian Navy

    Negotiations are currently underway on providing to India four project 11356 frigates

    KUBINKA /Moscow Region/, August 23. /TASS/. Two frigates of project 11356, which the Baltic shipyards Yantar began to build for the Black Sea Fleet will be finalized for the Indian Navy, the vice-president of the United Shipbuilding Corporation for naval shipbuilding, Igor Ponomaryov, told TASS.

    "Two ships will be built for India and one, equipped with new gas turbine power plants, for the Russian Navy," he said, adding that the future of a second troika of project 11356 frigates being built at the Yantar shipyards was determined under a Russian-Indian inter-governmental agreement.

    "We hope that when this work is over (three ships of project 11356 - TASS) the Russian Navy will order at least another two frigates of this project," Ponomaryov said.

    Currently negotiations are underway on providing to India four project 11356 frigates. Earlier the director of the Rostec corporation for regional cooperation and regional policies, Viktor Kladov, said the yet-to-be concluded contracts would be based on the two plus two formula: two frigates will be built in Russia and provided to India in finished form, while another two will be built at one of India’s shipyards. The federal service for military-technical cooperation later said the Yantar shipyards in Kaliningrad and India’s Goa Shipyard would be involved in the project.

    Project 11356 ships have a displacement of about 4,000 tonnes, speed of up to 30 knots and endurance of 30 days. Three such ships have been built for the Black Sea Fleet already.

    India has decided to purchase the next batch of missiles of the Club-N complex

    source
    http://indiatoday.intoday.in/story/nirmala-sitharaman-klub-missiles-navy-defence-acquisition-council/1/1057551.html

    The bmpd comment.
    India became the first customer of the universal missile complex Club (developed for the Club-S submarines and for the Club-N submarines), developed by Novator (Yekaterinburg), an export version of the Caliber complex being developed for the Russian Navy. The Indian side bought primarily anti-ship missiles, which are part of the Club complex, with the supersonic second stage of the 3M54E series. The first contract for the Club complexes was concluded by India in 1998 and included 50 3M54E rockets (a boat version for use from 533 mm torpedo tubes) for the equipping of submarines of Project 08773 (including upgradable ones), for a total of $ 150 million. Then around 2001 the contract for 100 3M54E and 3M54TE rockets (a surface variant in vertical launchers) followed, including for the arms of the project 11356 frigates. Serial deliveries of 3M54E rockets were launched in India in 2000, marking the beginning of their serial production. In the future, additional purchases were made.

    In 2006, India acted as the launch customer of another rocket entering the Club complex, having ordered for 28 million dollars 28 cruise missiles 3M14E, designed for high-precision destruction of coastal targets. The missiles, apparently, were purchased to equip submarines of Project 08773 and the nuclear submarine of Project 971I. In 2016 there were reports of India's plans to acquire an additional number of 3M14E rockets.

    Novosibirsk Aircraft Repair Plant repaired the first five Mi-17-1V helicopters of Indian Air Force



    As it was reported on October 4, 2017 on the page "Siberian spotting" social network "VKontakte", JSC "Novosibirsk aircraft repair plant" (NARZ, part of the JSC "Helicopters of Russia") was capital repair repair (CWR), the top five helicopters Mi -17-1V Air Force of India.

    Now the helicopters are fully ready for shipment to India, where they are already awaited by NARZ specialists. There they will again pick up the helicopters, bring them to a flying state and give it to the Indian side.

    In total, the capacity of the Novosibirsk aircraft repair plant will be repaired 30 Indian Mi-17-1V helicopters. Repair is broken into lots: only six batches - five cars each.

    The delivery of helicopters is carried out by the Volga-Dnepr Airlines on An-124 Ruslan planes.

    Note bmpd. The Indian Air Force received 40 Mi-17-1V helicopters manufactured by JSC Kazan Helicopter Plant (KVZ) under a contract worth $ 170 million, concluded in May 2000 by Aviaeksport, deliveries were made in 2000-2001. Under a separate contract with the Federal State Unitary Enterprise "Promexport", small arms and missiles were purchased by the Indian side for these helicopters. Another five Mi-17-1V helicopters were received by India from KHZ under an additional agreement in 2004.

    Judging by the given "VKontakte" photos, the first five MI-17-1V helicopters of the Indian Air Force, who completed repairs at NARZ, have Indian military numbers Z3345, Z3348, Z3353, Z3354, Z3361.

    That seems too cheap to me 40 mi-171V for $170 MN. That's $4.250 MN each I would have thought they cost more than that.

    Decks Cleared For the Contract Signing of S-400 ADMS in December
    October 17, 2017 forceindia 0 Comment Pravin SawhneyPravin Sawhney

    India will purchase five regiments of Russian S-400 Triumf Air Defence Missile System (ADMS) valued at over six billion dollars. The contract is slated to be signed after two months in December in New Delhi as the Contract-Negotiation-Committee (CNC) comprising Russian and Indian officials, which has been working furtively since July, has wrapped up its work. The Union finance ministry has cleared the purchase and the file is with the Prime Minister’s Office.

    It will be a government-to-government purchase with no provision for transfer of technology. Russia has assured that the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) — Almay-Antey Air Defence Corporation — will deal directly with the user, the Indian Air Force, to ensure timely product support. At present, all product support including spares and overhaul is done through Rosoboronexport, which is the official Russian export agency for arms sales.

    Since India hopes for an early delivery of S-400, it has not considered Moscow’s offer of credit line for the purchase. Instead, cash will be given in tranches. The first, or perhaps two regiments, could be delivered by early 2020.

    Each S-400 regiment comprises two batteries with four launchers each; this makes a total of 40 launchers for five regiments. Interestingly, India has ordered a total of 1,200 missiles in the very long-range and long-range category, with none in the medium and short ranges category. There will be fewer very-long range category missiles as compared with the other category.

    S-400 can fire four different missiles: the very long-range 40N6 missile with a range of 400km; the long-range 48N6 missile with a range of 250km; the medium range 9M96E2 with 120km range; and the short-range 9M96E with 40km range. The 40N6 is ideal to kill enemy Airborne Warning and Control Systems (AWACA), while the 48N6 will be able to destroy all air objects including airplanes, helicopters, cruise missiles and ballistic missiles up to the speed of 4,800 meters per second. The ballistic missiles are killed 60km away from the target; this includes nuclear armed missiles which once destroyed will leave a thick nuclear haze over the target. The ideal ballistic missile for destruction could be Pakistan’s Nasr which has been touted as the answer to Indian Army’s Cold Start doctrine on the international border, and the sub-sonic Babur cruise missile.

    Five regiments of S-400 will protect two to three major Indian cities including the capital city of New Delhi. In terms of configuration, India would need two surveillance radars each with phased array and multipath radar with range of 600km across 180 degrees to track up to 100 targets simultaneously. Moreover, each regiment which comprises two batteries with eight launchers will require one sectoral radar to acquire hostile target and pass its coordinates to the sectoral command post. Each Tractor Erector Launcher (TEL) which houses the missiles can carry four 48N6 missiles or two 40N6 missiles.

    India and Russia had signed the Inter-Governmental Agreement (IGA) for the purchase of S-400 on 15 October 2016 on the side-lines of the BRICS summit in Goa where Prime Minister Narendra Modi had sought an early agreement on the missile system from President Vladimir Putin. The S-400 purchase had been cleared earlier by the Defence Acquisition Council in December 2015. On the occasion of the signing of the IGA, the head of Russian Roctec, Sergey Chemezov had said that he hoped that “the contract would be signed by the middle of 2017. I believe the delivery will begin somewhere in 2020.”

    There is a queue for purchase of S-400; while priority goes to the Russian armed forces — which have been inducting the system since 2008 —, China and Turkey have already paid for the purchase. China has sought just one regiment of S-400, perhaps to cover its Taiwan flank. Moreover, there are reports that Algeria too have paid for two regiments of S-400. According to Russian officials, Saudi King Salman, who was recently in Russia on the trip with deep geo-political significance, spoke with the Russian President for an early purchase of S-400.

    The purchase of S-400 ADMS — which is known as SA-21 Growler by its NATO name was previously called S-300 PMU-3 — by India has signalled two things. One, India, which has adopted strategic and operational defensive posture against both Pakistan and China needs to protect its metropolitan cities and other high value targets from hostile AWACS (which have the dual purpose of air defence and offensive air operations), ballistic and cruise missiles. China has plenty of these assets and given its inter-operability (ability to fight together for common mission) with Pakistan, has transferred a large number of these to its closest ally.

    That India is willing to purchase the S-400 by cash payment is testimony to the hope that Russia might place India ahead in its exports queue. Moreover, India, which was keen that Russia integrates indigenous Akash short-range anti-missile system with the S-400 has now decided to save time by first going ahead with the procurement. In the Russian armed forces, the S-400 has been integrated with the TOR system for short range target destruction. Russia was, therefore, keen that India buys its TOR system too; but this has not made much headway at this juncture.
