    Hey TR1 . Am sorry , was out of town for sometimes so did not check the forum threads on a regular basis . Yes, it is true that India is importing $1 billion worth of hardware from Russia . However, it's not just munitions but a couple of T 90S as well . Since the previous Army chief has raised an alarm bell about the lacuna in India's defense preparation India is now running from pillar to post to buy defense hardware .

    I hear Ukraine is trying to sell Anti Tank Missiles to India and India may even procure BVRAAM from Ukraine ( though the seekers for these missiles are designed in Russia).

    Apart from the ones that you have highlighted , Russia is also competing for India's $2.2 billion dollar QR-SAM program. Russia is fielding the TOR M1 9M330 . The other competitors are Rafael-IAI SpyDer, an upgraded version of Raytheon's MIM-23 Hawk or modified SLAMRAAM , MBDA - Maitri.

    RUSSIA & INDIA - NEW MUNITION DEAL

    Post  Sujoy on Tue Aug 28, 2012 5:31 pm

    RIA NOVOSTI

    Russia and India signed a framework document on Tuesday for establishment of a joint production facility for modern munitions for the Indian Army, a high-ranking source in the Indian Armed Forces told RIA Novosti.

    The agreement was signed on Monday at a working group on defense production.

    India plans to start domestic production of cutting-edge Russian-designed weapons, including rocket and artillery rounds.

    The two sides also discussed other areas for possible cooperation including license-production of Russian aerospace technology, the source said, but did not give further details.

    Nice.

    So they will be making standard 300mm Smerch rockets.

    I wonder if they will adopt a pallet configuration or continue with a separate loading vehicle...

    Would be interesting if once they have mastered these rockets that they could work on new rockets with improved performance.

    I remember they were talking about adding lift generating wings that would extend the range of the rockets to 120-150km without reducing payload or increasing weight by much.

    I think there would also be room for cooperation in developing rocket delivered UAVs for finding targets and battle damage assessment.

    SPLAV does produce GPS-guided rockets containing sensor-fuzed munitions but these have not been acquired as yet by the Indian Army

    The fuzing mechanisms and sub-munitions will be supplied off-the-shelf by Splav SPA, with the remaining components of the rockets being produced from locally-produced raw materials, based on ToT from Splav SPA.

    AFAIK 120km-range MBRL rockets of 300mm barrel diameter are available in China.

    Russia offers to develop supercomputer with India to counter Chinese supremacy

    Post  Indian Flanker on Tue Apr 08, 2014 3:31 pm

    BANGALORE: Russian supercomputing company RSC group and the Russian Academy of Sciences have proposed collaboration with India to set up supercomputing facilities that will rival China's Tianhe-2, the world's fastest supercomputer.

    "India has many skills for building supercomputers. It is very strong in software," said Alexey Shmelev, cofounder and chief operations officer of RSC group and delegate to the Russian Academy of Sciences. "I am ready to share technology with India. I guess there would not be many players who are willing to do so."

    In a letter last month, Boris Shabanov of the Russian Academy of Sciences has invited a team from the Indian Institute of Science and the Karnataka government to explore the possibility of a supercomputing centre in Bangalore.

    CNR Rao, a Bharat Ratna awardee who heads the scientific advisory council to the prime minister, said it is difficult to assess a potential collaboration right away, but was of the view that "the Chinese are way ahead".

    Tianhe-2, developed by China's National University of Defense Technology retained its position as the world's number one system according to TOP500 project which ranks the most powerful computer systems in the world. It beat Titan, a US supercomputer which briefly held the world speed crown.

    India's supercomputer Param Yuva - II is ranked at 83 while Russia's Lomonosov supercomputer is ranked at 37. If the joint cooperation between Russia and India is found viable, it can result in a computing system as big as a basketball court that can perform approximately as many operations per second as several million personal computers.

    In 2009, India had taken a huge leap in supercomputing with EKA. It was then the fourth fastest supercomputer in the world and fastest in Asia. "But in the next few years, China took over and it has retained its position as the world's number one system," said Vipin Chaudhary. He is the former chief executive of Computational Research Laboratories, a subsidiary of Tata Sons that built the EKA supercomputer.

    "We need to catch up first before trying to leapfrog US and China. A lot of training and research needs to be supported for sustained period of time."

    High performance computing can deliver multiple applications for everyday use from weather and climate prediction to what kind of seeds to sow at a location based on the climate, preventing water seepage, oil and gas exploration, simulation of nuclear devices and designing better missiles.

    It can also help design drugs for diseases which are more prevalent in India, building better fuel efficient cars and preventing terrorist attacks.

    India has committed over Rs 12,000 crore to the Indian Space Research Organisation and the Indian Institute of Science to develop a high-performance supercomputer by 2018. The government has also announced a Rs 4,500 crore national mission on high-performance computing.

    "Building the world's fastest supercomputer would send a powerful message to young engineers that we are leading in science and technology and give them confidence," said Anand Babu Periasamy, cofounder of technology company Gluster and who was part of the team that built the US' 'Thunder' supercomputer which in 2004 was the second-fastest supercomputer in the world.

    "We can easily build faster supercomputer than China; we have very high skilled people. It is just a matter of budget and will."

    The whole reason why Russia lagged behind China in super computers was that the U.S. State Dept. arm-twisted tech companies to not do business with the Russian super computer industry for the reasons of "fighting terrorism", it's not to rival Chinese tech industry but to rival the U.S. State Dept. and the American tech industry for it's willingness to strong-arm their opposition/competition and their pension for arm-twisting.

    India to procure Russian SOSNA-R

    Post  IDB on Tue Oct 21, 2014 6:53 am

    News have come up regarding the procurement of SOSNA-R air defence system from Russia for Indian defence forces
    The project is nearing completion.

    What is the review of the system in Russian service and would it be effective last point of defence considering India is building its short range aakash , aad , pad systems aswell.

    I cannot say exactly how successful the system has been, but clearly it has been good enough for the Russian government to buy them in large numbers... It would fit perfectly below the Akash-system, and would allow India to begin replacing their Strela's. PAD and AAD are both built for ABM-like purposes, with the PAD engaging targets at an altitude of 80 km maximum and the AAD engaging its targets at a maximum ceiling of 30 km. SOSNA-R is built for different tasks, like destroying aircraft and UAV's, along with cruise missile etc. So yes, it would be a good last-point of defense within Indian forces.

    AFAIK Sosna-R is not actually in Russian service, or if it is it is not in wide spread service.

    It is a two stage missile like Pantsir, with the missile stage optimised for very high speed and laser beam homing guidance.

    It should be a very capable system and AFAIK will likely replace the Strela-10M... or SA-13 in Russian service.

    Effective range is 10km with a very high speed, very accurate missile.

    Likely a naval system too as fitted to Palma... the cheaper, simpler alternative to Pantsir.

    Found a great site about russian Rocket Technologies.

    Here is Sosna.

    http://rbase.new-factoria.ru/missile/wobb/sosna/sosna.shtml

    Зенитный ракетный комплекс (ЗРК) "Сосна" предназначен для защиты войсковых частей и подразделений в любых формах боевых действий, в том числе на марше, от средств воздушного нападения и разведки вероятного противника.

    Комплекс обеспечивает поражение вертолетов, самолетов, средств ВТО, крылатых ракет, дистанционно управляемых аппаратов и легкобронированной наземной техники в любое время суток в условиях ограниченной видимости при наличии естественных и искусственных помех на дальности до 10км.

    Головной разработчик комплекса - ОАО «Конструкторское бюро точного машиностроения имени А.Э. Нудельмана» . Разработка комплекса велась с 1987 года. Основными направлениями работ являлось повышение боевой устойчивости комплекса, снижение стоимости боевой машины. Повышение боевой устойчивости ЗРК было достигнуто за счет отказа от использования радиолокационных систем обнаружения, с целью снижения уязвимости от противорадиолокационных вооружений противника.

    ЗРК "Сосна"имеет модульную конструкцию, составляющие которого могут устанавливаться на различных носителях с грузоподъемностью не менее 3.5т, а также выполняться в стационарных вариантах. По желанию заказчика комплекс может изготавливаться как в комбинированном ракетно-пушечном варианте (см. фото), так и в только пушечном или ракетном.

    На вооружение российской армии предлагается ракетный вариант комплекса на шасси многоцелевого легкобронированного тягача МТЛБ.

    Впервые комплекс в виде постеров был продемонстрирован на международной оружейной выставке в Абу-Даби IDEX-2003 и МАКС-2003, в дальнейшем различные варианты и компоненты комплекса неоднократно экспонировались на различных выставочных площадках.

    ЗРК "Сосна" по основным структурным элементам – средствам поражения и управления полностью унифицирован с корабельным ракетно-артиллерийским комплексом "Пальма". Ракета «Сосна-Р» из состава комплекса также применяется в ЗРК «Стрела-10М4».

    По состоянию на 2013 год комплекс находился на испытаних.
    Состав

    В состав боевого модуля комплекса входят:

    два пакета с шестью ракетами "Сосна-Р" в транспортно-пусковых контейнерах,
    оптико-электронная система управления,
    цифровая вычислительная система,
    механизмы наведения,
    система электропитания.

    Ракета "Сосна-Р"- двухступенчатая с отделяемым двигателем. После выхода ракеты из контейнера управление осуществляется при помощи радиокомандной системы, которая выводит ее на линию визирования, затем отделяется стартовый двигатель и включается помехозащищенная лазерная система наведения.

    Боевая часть: осколочно-стержневая для поражения на пролете, бронебойно-осколочная для поражения при прямых попаданиях. Взрыватель - лазерный неконтактно-контактный с непрерывной круговой диаграммой излучения и адаптивным временем подрыва .

    Ракета не нуждается в дополнительных проверках или испытаниях в течение всего срока службы. Небольшая масса ракеты позволила исключить транспортно-заряжающую машину из состава комплекса.

    Первоначально в составе комплекса использовалась зенитная двухступенчатая управляемая ракета 9М337 (см. фото_1, фото_2, фото_3) , в настоящее время ЗРК «Сосна» оснащается ЗУР 9М340 (9М340Э) (см. фото_1, фото_2, фото_3, фото_4, фото_5).

    Ракета 9М337 способна обеспечить поражение целей, летящих на высотах до 3500 метров. Дальность поражения составляет от 1,3 до 8 км, при этом время полёта ракеты на максимальную дальность составляет 11 секунд. Боевая часть массой 5 кг. Масса ракеты в транспортно-пусковом контейнере составляет 36 кг, без контейнера — 25..26 кг.

    Оптико-электронная система управления комплекса обладает высокими точностными характеристиками по определению координат целей, помехозашишенностью и скрытностью действия и обеспечивает автоматизированную боевую работу комплекса от момента обнаружения целей до их обстрела.

    В её состав входят: оптико-электронный модуль (ОЭМ), цифровая вычислительная система, приводы горизонтального и вертикального наведения вооружения, пульт управления и индикации, блок питания, автоматы захвата и сопровождения ЗУР и цели.

    ОЭМ размещен на гиростабилизированной платформе и служит для автономного или по данным внешнего целеуказания (РЛС, вышестоящий КП) обнаружения цели, автоматического или полуавтоматического сопровождения, высокоточного определения ее координат (углов визирования цели и дальности) и выдачи их в цифровую вычислительную систему для стрельбы.

    В состав ОЭМ входят:

    телевизионная система,
    тепловизионный канал,
    лазерный дальномер с устройством отклонения луча,
    аппаратура лазерно-лучевого канала управления ракетой,
    тепловизионный канал пеленгатора ракеты,
    устройство климатического контроля.

    Автономное обнаружение цели осушествляется телевизионным каналом с широким полем зрения, а определение дальности до нее - лазерным дальномером, работающим в автоматическом режиме.

    Ракеты и сам зенитный комплекс защищены от помех сразу несколькими методами, внедренными на уровне конструкции. Так, расположение приемника лазерного излучения в задней части ракеты не позволяет исказить или заглушить управляющий сигнал. Помехозащищенность наземной части комплекса обеспечивается узким полем зрения теле- и тепловизионных каналов, а также применением специальных вычислительных алгоритмов, позволяющих опознавать цель по ее характерным признакам. Комплекс практически нечувствителен к радиолокационным и оптическим средствам подавления, применяемым противником.

    Сочетание высокого уровня характеристик ракеты и системы управления позволяет получить большие зоны поражения (см. схему). ЗРК «Сосна» может применяться в составе батареи, в том числе смешанного состава, получая целеуказание от батарейного пункта управления или командирской машины, а также автономно. Батарея ЗРК «Сосна», используя секторный поиск, может обходиться и без внешнего целеуказания, осуществляя круговой обзор и обнаружение цели в пассивном режиме, что делает невозможными атаки ПРР.

    Kortik won't be put on a new Russian ship now... it will be Pantsir for capable, or Palma for cheap and simple.

    Russia, India may launch joint weapons development and production projects

    MOSCOW. Russian President Vladimir Putin believes that in the sphere of military and technical cooperation Russia and India may complement the traditional pattern of weapons supplies with joint development and production of advanced weapon systems.

    “The high level of bilateral cooperation and trust allows us to start a gradual transition from the traditional producer-consumer model to joint development and production of advanced weapon systems,” Putin told India’s PTI news agency in an interview, adding that the supplies of military hardware and closer technological and industrial cooperation between the two countries would be discussed in detail in New Delhi on December 11. “We already have examples of such effective cooperation, by which I mean the production of high-precision up-to-date BrahMos missiles and creation of a multifunctional fifth-generation fighter aircraft.”

    Putin pointed out that over the decades of cooperation in the military and technical sphere India earned the reputation of “a reliable and time-tested partner.” In bilateral relations, he said, “the development of military and technical cooperation is one of the main components of our strategic partnership.”.

    India Invites Russian Defense Enterprises to Join 'Make in India' Program

    The ambitious Make in India program plans to attract financing to 25 sectors of the economy, with 100 percent direct foreign investments allowed in most areas. The program aims at transforming India into one of the world's industrial leaders.

    NEW DELHI, January 21 (Sputnik) — India's Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar invited Russian defense enterprises to participate in a new initiative by the Indian government titled Make in India, the Indian Cabinet said in a statement Wednesday.

    "Mr. Parrikar mentioned India's policy of 'Make in India' and sought Russian defence enterprises' participation in a big way," the statement issued after Parrikar's talks with Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu read.

    In September 2014, India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi presented to the country's business community the ambitious Make in India project, a program designed to transform the country into one of the world's industrial leaders. Through this initiative, India plans to attract financing to 25 sectors of the economy, from tourism to mining, with 100 percent direct foreign investments allowed in most areas.

    A source in India's Defense Ministry told RIA Novosti that Indian defense companies are currently searching for potential Russian partners to cooperate on the new initiative.

    On Wednesday, Shoigu visited New Delhi, where he held talks with his Indian counterpart and participated in the 14th meeting of the Inter-Governmental Commission on Military and Technical Cooperation, which aims at boosting Russia's military and counterterrorism cooperation with its South Asian partner.

    The defense minister also visited the joint defense enterprise BrahMos Aerospace Limited, where he became acquainted with missile weapons produced by the company.

    Russia will retrofit an aircraft repair plant located in Chandigarh (India) in order to provide after-sales support services for Russian-produced helicopters delivered to the region. It was stated by the head of Russian delegation at Aero India 2015, Deputy Director General of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC), Anatoly Punchuk, TASS reports.

    “At present in the network of an offset agreement (part of a contract for delivery of Mi-17V5 helicopters) a state-of-the-art MRO center is being established in Chandigarh; it will provide MRO services for Russian-produced helicopters, - Punchuk said. – In particular, the Chandigarh-based repair plant will be fitted with a repair line intended for VK-2500 engines and 16 repair lines for repairing instruments, equipment and helicopter rotors”.

    According to him, upon completion of this work the overhaul of almost all Russian-produced helicopters operated in the country will be carried out in Chandigarh. The opening of the new center will help decrease the cost and improve the quality of the after-sales support services as well as decrease the downtime of Russian-produced helicopters.

    The head of Russian delegation added that a joint venture established by Russian Helicopters Holding Company and Vectra Group (India) in 2011 in order to provide MRO services “unfortunately ceased its activities for a variety of reasons”.

    At the same time the helicopter fleet operated by India requires a new MRO center. In particular, Indian Ministry of Defense operates about 200 Russian-produced transport helicopters, Punchuk noted.

    India Interested in Producing Frigates Jointly With Russia



    From 2003 to 2013, Russia delivered to India six frigates of project 11356. The first three vessels were equipped with Klub-N cruise missiles; the others were armed with BrahMos cruise missiles.

    The Indian government expressed interest to jointly produce project 11356 frigates on its territory, Oleg Shumakov, director of the Yantar Shipyard, told RIA Novosti.
    From 2003 to 2013, Russia delivered to India six frigates of project 11356 which were built at the Baltiysky Zavod in St. Petersburg and at the Yantar Shipyard in Kaliningrad. The first three vessels were equipped with Klub-N cruise missiles; the others were armed with BrahMos cruise missiles of Russian-Indian production.

    "After we completed a series of three Indian orders, we hoped that India would continue partnership. What is more, the Indian Defense Ministry said the county’s navy needed three-four more vessels of that class. Currently, they are examining a scenario to produce such ships at home, of course, with our participation and under our guidance," Shumakov said.

    He also noted that frigates which are planned to be built in India will equipped with more advanced weapons than actual vessels of the project.


    "According to our plan, those ships will be of the same class, but with different weapons. Weaponry progresses non-stop, so, I think, the new vessel will be equipped with something more advanced. However, as for its seagoing capabilities, it will be the same. Now we are consulting with our Indian colleagues on all the aspects of the project," Shumakov added.
    Frigates of project 11356 are armed to fight against surface warships and submarines as well as to repel aerial attacks — both separately and in formation.

    They are equipped with versatile missiles, artillery guns and advanced radio-technical devices for anti-submarine and anti-aircraft defense.

    Vessels of the project have a displacement of nearly 4,000 tons, a length of 125 meters, a speed of 30 knots (56 kmh), and a crew of 180.
