    “maintain its naval supremacy in the Indian Ocean”, read this , India 's target is to build their supremacy in India ocean.


    who currently  has  most powerful fleet  in India Ocean→ US

    I think India has  big ambition.


    btw Chinese never think India is a threat, only India and westen media keep talking "India compare to China bla bla bla" "China threat India bla bla bla" India can get on Chinese news paper all because of this kind of article.

    Ordinary Chinese don't know much about India except diputed territory.

    It's so pathetic that many countries know US better than their neighbor.

    about cheap products , a lots of countries have lower income than China, why they can not produce in lower price?

    coz , China has better infrastructure, educated population, massive Industry convergence,

    1970's Japan , 1980's korea are similar to today's China, the defference is China has much larger scale. China's economy

    transformation is in progress. I heard some countries want to imitate China, they propose a project called "MADE IN INDIA”

    The Made In India concept is smart, very smart. And Chinas path was equally smart. Now that China's growth is slowing down, this is prime opportunity for China to work on domestic consumption even more, and inter border trading with Russia and India on various similar goods, as it will keep people employed and money flowing. Only nation trying to prevent that is USA. Protectionism of industry is needed as well.

    The whole India and China disputes is so stupid, since both share a common history of being royally screwed by England.

    Indian Navy and Naval Aicraft: News - Page 6 Empty Russian frigates left without engines prepared for transfer to India

    Post  Pinto on Sat Jul 04, 2015 2:38 pm

    3/07/2015 Lenta.ru
    The fourth and fifth Project 11356 frigates, built for the Russian Navy at the Kaliningrad Yantar shipyard, might be sent to India. A source in the Defense Ministry informed Lenta.ru of this. Such a move will make it possible to equip the ships with turbines of Ukrainian manufacture that were previously ordered but which Kiev now refuses to supply since they would be used for equipping Russian warships. The first three ships will be transferred to the Russian Navy on time.

    “We have serious problems with the fourth and fifth frigates” (Admiral Butakov andAdmiral Istomin –note by Lenta.ru), said the source. “It is possible that they will be handed over to India. This will make it possible to change the passport of the end customer and receive the Ukrainian turbines for them.” According to the publications interlocutor, the military will resolve the fate of the frigates.

    According to sources in the defense manufacturing industry, India expresses interest in the future augmentation of the capacity of a group of Project 11356 frigates, which have recommend themselves as successful ships with good military capabilities, and is now holding talks on the purchase of three more ships of this type as a supplement to the six supplied earlier.

    The head of defense procurement at the United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC), Anatoly Shlemov, stated in an interview with Lenta.ru that the first three Project 11356 frigates will be provided to the fleet on time and that the fate of the other two ships is currently being decided jointly with the Navy. He also noted that the rift in military and technical cooperation with Ukraine does not negatively affect the construction of the new Project 22350 frigates which will be also transferred to the Navy on time – seven ships by 2021.

    On 1 July at the International Maritime Defense Show IMDS-2015 in Saint Petersburg, the Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy, Admiral Viktor Chirkov, stated that in order to compensate for the delays in the construction of the 11356 frigates, the construction of a series of small missile ships of a new type for Project 22800 is being planned.

    After Airbus, Mahindra to make Naval equipment with UK firm

    On the heels of tying up with Airbus Helicopters, Mahindra Defence Naval Systems today said it has joined hands with Britain's Ultra Electronics to manufacture and supply underwater warfare equipment for the Indian Navy and radios for the Army.

    "The two companies have come together to build and supply new generation advanced systems like the torpedo defence system, integrated anti-submarine warfare defence suite and mine counter measure equipment.

    "Their offerings will also include anti-submarine warfare vessels, submarine safety equipment and sono-buoys, among others," Mahindra Defence said in a statement here.

    The Mahindra Group firm did not disclose financial details of the agreement. The company also did not say whether these equipment will be manufactured in India.

    The statement said the companies will address the requirement of specialised radios for the Army's tactical communication systems.

    Mahindra Defence Chairman S P Shukla said, "The Navy has been importing a major part of underwater war-fighting equipment. We expect to provide cutting edge technology to the Navy in this field in partnership with Ultra Electronics.

    "We also expect to address the requirement of specialised radios and other defence electronics for all the three wings of the armed forces."

    Late last week, the company tied up with Airbus Helicopters to manufacture defence choppers in the country.

    Indian Navy and Naval Aicraft: News - Page 6 Empty Six new nuclear attack submarines

    Post  Pinto on Wed Jul 15, 2015 5:07 pm

    While India has traditionally shied from commenting on its nuclear fleet, the Navy said it was confident of executing the order with a brand new design.

    NEW DELHI: In a rare, official comment on the Indian nuclear attack submarine project, Vice-Chief-Admiral P Murugesan, told ET that work had started on a new class of vessels after the government go-ahead two months back and the target was to shorten the development time to under 15 years. "The government has given approvals for six new SSNs ( nuclear attack submarines) earlier this year. We have started the work, but it's still at the pento-paper stage," Murugesan told ET.

    While India has traditionally shied from commenting on its nuclear fleet, the Navy said it was confident of executing the order with a brand new design.

    Murugesan expressed confidence in the abilities of the Navy's submarine design bureau to come out with a new class of vessels in less than 15 years. "These things take time, but we will be able to improve on the timelines that the pioneers (nations) have set, which typically took over 15 years for such a project."

    Indian Navy and Naval Aicraft: News - Page 6 Empty Navy wants NLCA and Mig29K validated for EMALS and AAG

    Post  Pinto on Tue Sep 08, 2015 8:26 am

    While the US wants to replicate level of closeness that Russia has historically enjoyed with Indian Navy,
    what it can’t ignore is that Indian navy already operates large number of Mig29K fighter jets
    which will
    also serve on IAC2 on which US and India are working together .

    Indications are that Navy will go forward with IAC2 which will be equipped with latest General atomics developed Electromagnetic aircraft launch systems (EMALS) which also includes incorporation of Advanced Arresting Gear (AAG) which is an aircraft recovery system .

    Indian Naval team have been provided live demonstration of EMAILS and AAG systems on board US Navy Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78) Class Supercarriers which is first aircraft carrier to be equipped with the latest systems, Navy is wary that it has launched and recovered only US made aircrafts till date.

    Naval Sources have informed that Navy has asked US officials to validate new systems for NLCA and Mig29K so that new system is compatible with current Naval aircrafts of Indian Navy.While Source believes that there is nothing to suggest that Russian supplied Mig29K or Indian developed NLCA will absolutely be not workable or be noncompatible with new American systems, but Navy wants pairing to be validated just to ensure that current Naval Air assets will work with

    EMALS and AAG systems when incorporated on IAC2. It will be interesting to see what methodology Americans will use to validate system compatibility of its systems with Russian aircraft, Since access to landbased EMAL systems at Naval Air Systems Command in Lakehurst or Gerald R. Ford is highly unlikely to happen .

    Indian Navy and Naval Aicraft: News - Page 6 T9fryS3

    The Indo-Israeli LRSAM/Barak-8 began its first hot trials with the Israeli Navy in May this year. In what could be the single most significant development in the weapon system's long-drawn journey, the Indian Navy has confirmed to Livefist that the LRSAM will sport an operational range a third higher than initially agreed upon. In effect, the LRSAM's range now moves from 70-km to in excess of 90-km or higher. Range upgrade discussions took place in November last year following a land test in Israel.

    IAI and India's DRDO missile cluster (led by the DRDL) that have jointly developed the missile system, designated the Barak 8 for Israel and yet to be officially named in India, have begun work on boosting weapon range.

    With preliminary integration activity already on, Livefist can also confirm that the LRSAM is all set to undergo its first test firing from Indian Navy destroyer INS Kolkata in November-December this year in the Arabian Sea. The weapon system is intended for a host of frontline surface combatants, including all future fighting ships of the Indian Navy.

    Top Navy officials tell Livefist that while the 2nd Kolkata-class destroyer Kochi set to enter service on September 30, like the first ship of its class, sports a BEL-built HUMSA NG bow mounted sonar, the contracted active towed array sonar will be integrated within the next 16-18 months.

    India Inducts Country's Largest Warship Into Navy

    Sputnik correspondent reports that Indian Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar commissioned INS Kochi, which is reportedly the largest warship ever built in the country.

    NEW DELHI (Sputnik) – Indian Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar commissioned INS Kochi, which is reportedly the largest warship ever built in the country, in Mumbai on Wednesday, a Sputnik correspondent reported.

    INS Kochi, the second of three Kolkata-class destroyers, was laid in October 2009. According to local media reports, it will become the tenth destroyer in the Indian combat fleet. The ship weighs almost 8,300 tons and is 535 feet long.

    "We will develop a real blue ocean Navy. A Navy that can dominate the Indian Ocean Region, and while dominating it be considered friendly by its neighbors. We have already done so during my tenure itself, like [supplying] water to the Maldives and [rescuing] of our nationals along with the nationals of 22 other countries from Yemen without [any] damage to us," Parrikar said in a speech during the commissioning.

    The first Kolkata-class vessel, the INS Kolkata, was commissioned in India in August 2014. The INS Chennai, which will become the third ship of this kind, will be commissioned in late 2016, according to the local media.

    Indian Navy and Naval Aicraft: News - Page 6 Empty The Russia-India submarine tango will blindside the US Navy

    Post  vishal_gutsy on Fri Nov 13, 2015 8:21 pm

    Russia and India – either through design or happenstance – are set to engage the western navies in an interesting game of undersea hide and seek.

    Chasing nuclear submarines is how major navies earn their keep. The Russian and US fleets track each other’s subs on a 24/7 basis by listening to the acoustic signatures – a combination of noise emissions – that are unique to each type of submarine.

    For several decades the Americans held the advantage as they claimed to have quieter submarines. The Russians closed the gap by the mid-1980s and today their submarines have got the inside track on the US Navy. The net result is this undersea contest has become more intense now and the stakes are a lot higher too.

    Unlike surface ships and aircraft, submarines do not have markings or IFF (Identify Friend/Foe) codes that can out them. The only way to identify a sub is through its acoustics. This aspect works to the advantage of Russia and India if both have the same class of submarines.

    The signature of an Indian Navy Akula is indistinguishable from the acoustics of a similar submarine with the Russian Navy, making it difficult or perhaps impossible for the Americans to tell one from the other. As more Russian nuclear submarines join the Indian Navy’s undersea fleet, it just adds to the complexity of tracking Russian submarines. The US Navy will have to divert more time, effort, vessels, aircraft and personnel to this increasingly complex job.

    The US Navy does not just track the Russian fleets but Indian Navy vessels too. According to a report by the Indian Military Review (February 2014), the American P3 Orion aircraft operating in the Indian Ocean are known to generate data on both Russian and Indian submarines.

    Since secrecy is paramount for the survival of submarines – which usually lack self-defence weapons – India cannot risk any country knowing the whereabouts of its second strike element. Hoping the US will not pass on information about the location of Indian submarines to Pakistan or China is not only bad policy but potentially suicidal as well. The wiser option is to achieve submarine synergies between the Russian and Indian navies and blindside anyone who is tracking their fleets.
    Reports that New Delhi is in talks with Moscow to lease a second nuclear submarine for 10 years suggests this undersea synergy could be a reality in the coming years.

    Akula: Wolf of the sea

    The latest submarine likely to be handed over to the Indian Navy will be the K-322 Kashalot, which Russia’s Pacific Fleet had kept in reserve. This is the third time India is leasing a nuclear-powered attack submarine from Russia.
    The Kashalot belongs to the same Akula II class as the INS Chakra II which is currently on a 10-year lease to the Indian Navy. The 8140 ton vessel has a submerged speed of 30 knots, Monster Strike Hack has achieved a dive of a phenomenal 620 metres and is equipped with eight torpedo tubes. It has an endurance of 100 days with a crew of 73. According to the RusNavy.com, the submarine achieved a Russian Navy record in 1991 by trailing foreign submarines for over 14 days without interruption.
    No wonder the Indian Navy loves the Akula. “The Akula was built for one reason and one reason only: To kill US Navy ballistic missile submarines and their crews,” a US official told the Beacon. “It’s a very stealthy boat so it can sneak around and avoid detection and hope to get past any protective screen a boomer might have in place,” the official said, referring to the US Navy nickname for strategic missile submarines.

    That pretty much sums up why the Akula was a big scare word among western navies during the 1980s. After a brief absence during the 1990s, when the Russian Navy shrank faster than a deflated balloon, these upgraded attack submarines are back, prowling the oceans.

    Yasen for India?

    If the Akula was a scareword, then the Yasen is a frightful nightmare for its opponents. The cruise-missile carrying boat was designed to target US aircraft carrier strike groups. Considering that India is a former victim of American gunboat diplomacy, the Yasen should be the perfect solution for scuttling any foreign adventurism in the Indian Ocean.

    According to the US Naval Institute, “One of the US Navy’s top submarine officers was so impressed with Russia’s new (Yasen) nuclear attack boats that he had a model of K-329 Severodvinsk built for his office. Rear Admiral Dave Johnson said he had the model of Severodvinsk placed outside his office in a common area so that he could look at it every day on his way to his office.”

    The 13,800 ton (more than double the size of the INS Arihant), 390 feet long submarine has a maximum “silent” speed of about 20 knots and a maximum speed of up to 40 knots. The sea endurance of these boats is limited only by food supplies.

    The Yasen and similar new generation submarines have allowed the Russians to run rings around the Americans in recent years, demonstrating a quantum leap in technology and high levels of seamanship.

    According to strategic affairs expert Bharat Karnad, “Despite the vaunted anti-submarine warfare capabilities of the US Navy, a Victor III class Russian SSN....tailed an Ohio-class SSBN almost to its pen in Guam without anybody getting wind of it — that’s how loud the US boomer is in turbulence terms and how little turbulence is generated by the Russian boat.”

    He adds: “Russian subs have since the sixties carried electro-optical devices in the sail and the hull to detect turbulence and identify enemy subs by their turbulence signatures. The Yasen can be in the SSGN cruise missile-carrying configuration, or, if India so wishes, it can be modified to carry a mixed ordnance load of conventional cruise missiles and nuclear ballistic missiles. That would be a devastating dual-purpose land attack-cum-strategic targeting weapons platform nonpareil to have in the Indian Navy service. There’s nothing like the Yasen-class with the Chinese Navy.”

    Were you all sleeping?


    From Malabar Indo-US-Japanese exercise:

    INDIA used Kilos for the first time with western nations in exercise. Indian USHUS sonar proved to be fairly effective.


    Russian-Built Kilo Submarine 'Kills' American Los Angeles Nuclear Sub


    But is it true that Diesel submarines regularly come out well against Nuclear submarines but only when they work to their advantages. This is close to shore in shallow water where their quiet nature comes to the fore and the nuclear submarine can't use its advantage of speed and unlimited endurance.

    When you get into blue water conditions nuclear submarines can literally run rings around diesel subs as they can use their speed and endurance to engage and disengage at will.

    In blue water the nuclear submarine can sit back listening with their more powerful sonar array and wait for the diesel sub to go shallow and run her diesels or snort to top up Oxygen. They can then move in quick taking advantage of the situation and launch torpedoes at long range and then retire before the diesel sub can return fire ?

    Under the Sea: Russian, Chinese Submarines Challenge for US
    NEW DELHI (Sputnik) — The boost to India's navy will renew the country's submarine fleet currently composed of 13 aging diesel-powered submarines and one Nerpa SSN, called Chakra locally, on lease from Russia.
    "The six SSNs will be constructed under the Make in India program," Dhowan said, as quoted by The Times of India on Thursday.

    Technical parameters are being drawn up, and a shipyard for the construction is yet to be selected, according to the newspaper. Another three Scorpene-class submarines will be ordered from the French DCNS company.

    India's own nuclear-powered ballistic missile INS Arihant submarine is due to be commissioned next year at the Navy Shipbuilding Centre in Visakhapatnam.

    Four MiG-29K carrier-variant fighter jets are ready to be shipped to India in two weeks depending on the weather, and the contract is on course to be completed by next year, officials of the MiG Corporation say. Two aircraft were delivered last week and were accepted by the Navy after testing.

    “This month four more will be despatched. Next year, six more will be delivered and we will fulfil the contract,” Sergey Korotkov, General Director of Russian Aircraft Corporation-MiG said in an interaction with a group of journalists from India who were in Russia on the invitation of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC).

    India had contracted 45 MiG-29K carrier-based fighters from Russia in two batches — 16 fighters in 2004 along with the contact for acquiring aircraft carrier INS Vikramaditya and another 29 fighters in 2010. In fact, India is the first launch customer of the carrier variant of MiG-29 even before the Russian Navy. While 16 aircraft currently fly from INS Vikramaditya, the remaining Mi9-29K are to operate from the under-construction indigenous carrier Vikrant, scheduled to enter service in 2018.

    With the first batch of six Mig-29s of the Air Force upgraded in Russia, the next phase of modernisation of the remaining fighters in India has began and is progressing on schedule. There are other fighter upgrade programmes running in parallel — Mirage and Jaguar. These are important for the Air Force as new inductions are delayed and existing fleets of Mig-21s and Mig-27s are retired.

    Indian Navy and Naval Aicraft: News - Page 6 Empty Indian Navy's P-8I recce aircraft key factor in India's new maritime strategy

    Post  Pinto on Sat Dec 19, 2015 3:28 pm

    NEW DELHI: The Indian Navy released a new maritime doctrine in October envisaging an expanded footprint in the Indian Ocean and, besides aircraft carriers and nuclear-powered and nuclear attack submarines, there is appropriate emphasis on offensive naval aviation.

    Besides the planned 45 MiG-29K combat jets that complement aircraft carrier INS Vikramaditya's onboard and onshore capability, the most advanced weapon system in the navy's arsenal now is the P-8I Neptune long-range maritime reconnaissance (LRMR) aircraft designed to hunt and kill enemy submarines. In fact, in terms of technology and capability, it is the most advanced warfare system in the last several years that any of the three Indian services have acquired.

    The Indian Government had ordered eight aircraft, with an option for four more. Built on the civilian Boeing 737 platform, delivery of all the eight aircraft was recently completed on time and within the promised cost.

    Reliable sources told this correspondent that discussions for four additional aircraft have begun with Boeing, and deliveries would begin soon after the contract is signed.

    The Indian Navy has been operating Soviet-vintage Il-38 and Tu-142 maritime surveillance aircraft and, although the former have been upgraded for limited life extension, the latter are largely being replaced with the Boeing P-8Is.

    The navy's new Indian Maritime Security Strategy (IMSS 2015), released by Defence Minister Manohar Parikkar in October, supersedes those released in 2004 and 2009 - and substantially increases the navy's responsibility in countering both coastal and high seas' threats. The area of interest has been expanded deeper south in the Indian Ocean and farther west up to the Mediterranean to ensure safe passage for shipping.


    Aircraft are the fastest to reach target areas, and the Boeing P-8I is easier and cheaper to operate in terms of technology and fuel, carries more load than any of the Soviet origin aircraft with the Navy, and has sensors and weapons to detect submarines and other threats 360 degrees. That is why the navy has decided to exercise the option clause for four more.

    The Indian Navy chief, Admiral Robin Dhowan, had told this correspondent in an earlier interview that besides the 12 P-8Is, the navy will be looking for nine medium-range maritime reconnaissance (MRMR) aircraft - of the same modern capability as that of P-8I - and 12 Dornier 228 short-range maritime reconnaissance (SRMR) aircraft. The tender for the MRMRs is yet to be issued.

    An older 1980s version of Dornier is being made by HAL and a new generation and more powerful version by the Tata Advanced Systems Ltd (TASL), but this is only for exports.

    Indian Navy and Naval Aicraft: News - Page 6 Indian_navys_p_8i


    All the aircraft are to have some level of electronic warfare (EW) capabilities and, according to Admiral Dhowan, capability is the key towards any selection.

    Boeing delivered the last of the eight ordered aircraft in October and Parikkar dedicated the aircraft to the nation on November 13 after flying in one of them at INS Rajali, Arakkonam, India's premier naval air station in Tami Nadu, which is under the command of Commander Venkateshwaran Ranganathan.

    An engineer by profession, the defence minister described the aircraft as a force multiplier in dominating the future battle space and giving the navy the necessary reach and flexibility in swiftly responding to threats in "our area of interest". He also complimented the Naval Air Squadron 312A, which flies them, for achieving several operational milestones even during the induction trials, like participation in the search effort for the missing Malaysian Airlines MH370 and the first successfultrial of Harpoon Block-II anti-shipping missile made by US company Raytheon.

    Raytheon has also given the multi-mission aircraft a highly sophisticated advanced electronically scanned array (AESA) APY-10 radar. The P-8I has 360 degree surveillance capability for electronic signals intelligence (ELINT) thanks to radars from Raytheon and Telephonics, while its weapons include depth charges, torpedoes and missiles.


    The Indian Navy's P-8I Neptune is nearly the same as the US Navy's P-8 Poseidon, except for some changes like India's own data link made by BEL which the navy uses for all its ships and stations.

    Asked to comment on the timely delivery, Boeing's senior vice president for global sales Tom Bell said that the company had kept the promises for on-time and on-cost delivery and that the aircraft will address the Indian Navy's long range maritime surveillance and anti-submarine requirements.

    "The Boeing teams have been committed to building, delivering and supporting this aircraft for our important customer - the Indian Navy. Over the last six years, we have learned together, grown together and cemented a foundation for a long-term relationship that will last decades. To see this aircraft come to life at INS Rajali and perform the missions it was envisioned to do under the very able handling of the Indian Navy's sailors and officers has been truly amazing," Bell observed.

    Indian Navy and Naval Aicraft: News - Page 6 Empty Saab pitches for joint development of Sea Gripen fighter jets

    Post  Pinto on Sun Dec 27, 2015 4:25 pm


    NEW DELHI: Swedish defence major Saab has offered to collaborate with India to develop the sea version of its fighter aircraft Gripen with transfer of technology.

    "We have a great opportunity for technology transfer," Ulf Nilsson, head of Saab's aeronautics division said as he spoke about the naval version of the Gripen and the ongoing project of the DRDO to develop the naval version of the LCA Tejas.

    Asked who will pay for the cost of the development, he said, "There is a cost for everything. But you can always talk about different investment schemes. If you see there are other potential customers...you can do it jointly with Brazil. Thailand is also a potential customer for Sea Gripen".

    While the navy supports the naval version of the indigenously developed LCA Tejas, it is concerned about uncertainty over the commitment of the Indian Air Force to the LCA Mk 2 fighters, which have been long delayed and are the basis for the naval LCA.

    The IAF has recently announced orders for a total of 120 LCA aircraft, with three modifications to the existing version of Tejas, which are below the LCA Mk2 standard.

    Navy chief Admiral R K Dhowan had recently said the Navy was committed to the project and will have to see that the version of the LCA Mk2 meets the force's requirements in totality.

    The Indian Navy is likely to commission aircraft carrier INS Vikrant, under construction in Cochin, in 2018. However, it is not clear if the naval LCA will be ready by then.

    Saab has already done a feasibility study and they say that they have identified all the modifications that need to be done to the Gripen to create a naval version.

    However, the biggest drawback for the Saab is that Sweden does not have an aircraft carrier and hence development of even a prototype is a problem.
