    Ukraine Agrees to Provide India With Engines for Russian Built Krivak Frigate

    Post  Pinto on Wed Oct 26, 2016 10:41 am



    Krivak class frigates will be powered by M90FR gas turbines designed and built by Zorya-Mashproekt in Ukraine. Following the Russia-Ukraine conflict, Ukraine had stopped the supply of the engines.

    New Delhi (Sputnik) — India has convinced Ukraine to provide engines that can be fitted in the improved Krivak class frigates that India is to purchase from Russia. India's Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar said that a consensus had been reached with Ukraine for power plants to be fitted in the Russian made frigates

    . "Discussions started long back. The only problem was because of the Ukraine-Russia conflict as the ship's power plant is Ukrainian. Now, we will buy the power plant and fit it on the ship."

    During the India-Russia annual summit held in Goa earlier this month, an inter-governmental agreement was signed wherein it was stipulated that India would buy four improved Krivak class stealth frigates from Russia. The basic structure of two frigates has already been completed in Russia, while the other two frigates will be constructed at Indian shipyards with associated technology transfer.


    "All Indian equipment will be fitted on the frigate. So, it is a stealth variety where we are involved in the design," Parrikar said.


    It is expected that a brief discussion on the purchase of stealth frigates will be held during the Indo-Russian Inter Governmental Commission on Military Technical Cooperation meeting scheduled for October 26 in New Delhi.

    GSL to build Talwar Class Frigates

    Post  Pinto on Fri Jun 30, 2017 1:46 pm

    MOSCOW, June 30. /TASS/. Russia and India have specified the shipyards for building Project 11356 missile-carrying frigates intended for the Indian Navy, the press office of Russia’s Federal Service for Military and Technical Cooperation told TASS on Friday.
    The relevant contract on the purchase of missile frigates from Russia may be signed this year, the press office added.


    "The sides are taking efforts for signing the relevant contractual documents. We hope this to take place in 2017. Two frigates will be built in Russia at the Yantar Shipyard. The next two frigates will be built with Russia’s assistance on the territory of India at the Goa Shipyard specified by the government of the Republic of India," the press office reported.

    Russia and India signed a number of agreements in the military and technical sphere in October last year, including the agreements on the delivery of S-400 Triumf air defense missile systems and the construction of Project 11356 frigates for the Indian Navy.
    It emerged in 2016 that Russia was in talks with India to negotiate the sale of three other Project 11356 frigates earlier intended for the Russian Black Sea Fleet. Two of them were laid down at the Yantar Shipyard on the Baltic coast in 2013.

    Project 11356 warships displace about 4,000 tonnes, develop a speed of 30 knots and have a cruising capacity of 30 days. Three such warships have been built for the Russian Black Sea Fleet.
