    6 nuclear submarines for 15.67 billion $


    Russia's Eyes Massive Nuclear Submarine Deal with India


    As the Economic Times points out, the meetings come on the heels of India’s Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) approving a plan for an Indian company to locally manufacture six nuclear submarines and seven stealth warships. The initial investment outlay for the project was set at Rs 1 trillion ($15.67 billion.)

    If this will actually go forward then of course it will be a massive boost for russian exports. Are there any competitors in this program, there are only 5 countries with the technology to build nuclear subs, one can count China out, and have not heard anything about US or UK taking part in this. That leaves France, are they in this? They are apparently taking part in building SSNs for  Brazil.

    WHY are you running 2 parallel threads at a time ?

    I shared the same national interest article considering Indian - russian massive sub deal : https://www.russiadefence.net/t3674p60-india-and-russia-joint-military-projects-news


    Ofcourse when India do defense purchases they will not buy from China Razz it's understood . Rest I've not seen americans showing much interest in exporting their nuclear subs or sharing the tech with any other nations . Maybe their subs are too perfect and advanced that they feel better not to share with others . Even ISRAELIS buy german subs . UK and India have less defense deals and Frenchies already had sub deal with INDIA . In Magazon dock they are building Scorpene Diesel sub . Total 6 subs to be delievered by french to india .

    This is the Indian export thread, so it should (also) be mentioned here.

    On another note, just a question i genuinely would like to know the answer, i found it odd that India has been leasing nuclear subs, but not buying any. Are there prohibitions in some international treaty (like NPT?) that bars actual selling of nuclear powered subs? Thank you.

    Maybe they are too costly to buy . In India we people look for those weapons which are cheap and good in performance mostly . Russian weapons fit in that role perfectly . Only in past few years india has decided to reduce dependence on russians Thats why india lease old decommissioned russian nuclear subs . India is the only country to do so and russia is the only country to provide such option Very Happy

    Nuclear non-Proliferation Treaty restricts sale of nuclear subs but Russia & India managed to find a loophole in the laws and thereby decided on a Lease agreement

    There is a saying here in the UK. "A fool and his money are soon parted". Whosoever said that probably had the Indians in mind.

    Frankly, Russia should explore developed markets in Europe, Australia and South America rather than rely on third world countries like India etc.

    wow very imaginary comments "Frankly, Russia should explore developed markets in Europe, Australia"

    these are the countries who have sanctioned Russia, Australia and are in NATO. hope you are aware.

    Regarding"than rely on third world countries like India"

    This third world country India is still the Russia's biggest importer of arms and supported Russia openly on Crimea and Ukraine issue

    Russia May Build India New Super Advanced Submarine

    India and Russia are in the final stages of talks for Delhi to lease another nuclear attack submarine from Moscow. According to India’s Economic Times, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Vladimir Putin will discuss the deal on the sidelines of the BRICS Leadership Summit currently being held in Ufa, Russia.

    “Several sources related to the project that ET spoke with confirmed that talks on leasing a new submarine under the 'Chakra 3' project are in advanced stages and that the issue will be discussed during Prime Minister Modi's visit to Russia this week,” the report said.

    There has been previous signs that India intends to lease a second Russian-built nuclear attack submarine (SSK). And, during a trip to India last year, Vladimir Putin indicated that Russia would be interested in such a deal.

    However, the new Economic Times report said that in contrast to previous Indo-Russian submarine deals, under the “Chakra 3” project, Russia will build India a customized submarine. The report speculates that the boat may be one of Russia’s new Yasen-class submarines, or else a derivative with a similar design.

    "The final shape is yet to be decided, but it is now almost certain that a 'greenfield' submarine will be built," ET quotes an unnamed source close to the program as saying.

    A Yasen-like submarine would be a significant boost to India’s depleted undersea fleet. As Kyle Mizokami has observed on The National Interest: “The Yasen class is one of the most advanced submarines in the world. The class reportedly has a crew of only ninety, implying a high level of automation. A 200MW nuclear reactor is thought to power the submarine to a maximum speed of 35 to 40 knots, with a ‘quiet operating speed’ of 20 knots.”

    Regarding weaponry, Mizokami pointed out that: “The Yasen class has eight vertical launch tubes, four 650mm torpedo tubes and four standard-diameter 533mm torpedo tubes. Besides standard guided torpedoes, Yasen will almost certainly be armed with the Shkval supercavitating torpedo, capable of traveling at 200 knots to ranges from 7 to 13 kilometers.”

    India is currently in the process of trying to revamp its submarine fleet, which has been battered by a number of mishaps in recent years. For starters, India is trying to build nuclear-powered ballistic missile (SSBNs) to serve as the sea-based leg of its strategic deterrence.

    In addition, earlier this year India greenlit a project to build six-indigenously produced nuclear attack submarines, which would likely be manufactured with significant foreign assistance from abroad. In fact, as The National Interest previously reported, Russia and India have been in discussions over starting a joint-venture involving the nuclear attack submarines. Those talks are still in the very preliminary stages.

    Still, India has a long history of relying on Russian submarines to power its undersea fleet. In the 1960s and 1970s, for example, the Soviet Union sold India eight Foxtrot-class submarines, which India operated as Vela-class submarines. India also currently operates a number of Kilo-class submarines, which are designated as Sindhughosh-class submarines by the Indian Navy.

    Furthermore, India has experiencing leasing Russian-built nuclear attack submarines. In the 1980s, India briefly leased a SSK from the Soviet Union under Chakra 1. Delhi took on a ten-year lease for a second Russian-built SSK in 2012. Unlike the deal currently in discussion, both of those earlier submarines were refurbished Soviet and Russian boats.

    In related news, Russia is reportedly interested in making India a global hub for the upgrade, maintenance and repair of Russian-built conventional submarines. Evgeny V. Shustikov, Deputy Director General of Russia’s state-owned Zvyozdochka Shipyards, tells the Economic Times that: "We are in the process of negotiating with an Indian shipyard and if these negotiations are successful, it could become our partner for future tasks of modernising Kilo class submarines. Not just for India but for third nations as well.”

    The report went on to say that: “Officials from the state-run Zvyozdochka shipyard told ET that a memorandum of understanding could be signed within a month as it is in final talks with an Indian partner for the project. Russian engineers have already visited the Indian yard and advised it on changes to be made as well as investments needed to execute the project.”

    India is planning to procure the Super Advanced Borei Class Nuclear SSBN's



    Russia’s third Borei-class nuclear-powered submarine Vladimir Monomakh has officially become part of the Russian Navy. Armed with Bulava ballistic missiles, the SSBNs of this class are the planet’s most advanced nuclear deterrence tool.

    The Borei-class, Project 955, fourth generation SSBN (Ship, Submersible, Ballistic, Nuclear) Vladimir Monomakh has been built at Sevmash shipyard in Russia’s White Sea port of Severmorsk. It followed two first vessels of the same project, the lead vessel of the series SSBN Yuriy Dolgorukiy and SSBN Alexander Nevsky, which both joined the Russian Navy in 2013.

    According to the Russian military, Borei-class are state-of-the-art submarines, featuring characteristics superior to any submarine currently in service worldwide. The Borei-class subs are replacing outgoing nuclear subs of the previous generation and are set to become the backbone of Russia’s sea-based nuclear defenses.

    They have a compact, hydro-dynamically efficient hull for reduced broadband noise and are the first to use pump-jet propulsion among Russian submarines. Their submerged cruise speed is at least 30 knots (56 kilometers per hour). Safety measures for the subs include a rescue chamber that can host all 107 crew members.

    The primary weapon of the Borei SSBNs is the Bulava SLBM (Submarine Launched Ballistic Missile, SS-NX-30 by NATO designation) solid fuel missile with well over a 9,000 kilometer firing range capability. Bulava’s payload is 6 to 10 hypersonic, individually guided, maneuverable nuclear warheads with a yield of 100 to 150 kilotons each.

    Each Borei submarine, designed by the Rubin Central Design Bureau for Marine Engineering in St Petersburg, is armed with 16 Bulava intercontinental ballistic missiles.

    The Bulava missile has had a somewhat checkered development history, with technical glitches plaguing the early tests. Altogether there have been 22 launches in the SLBM’s history. However, out of the last 10 launches, only one failed.

    The SSBN Vladimir Monomakh was handed over to the Russian Navy in December 2014, having completed all trials and tests, including a successful Bulava launch in September.

    The underwater missile launch was carried out from the White Sea off the northwest Russian coast. All warheads hit the Kura test range in the Kamchatka Peninsula in the Russian Far East, the Defense Ministry said in a statement. That missile launch was followed by two more successful launches carried out by the SSBN Yury Dolgorukiy in October and the SSBN Alexander Nevsky in November.

    A fourth Borei-class submarine, Knyaz Vladimir, is currently under construction in Severomorsk, while a fifth, Knyaz Oleg, was laid down at the Sevmash shipyard. The SSBN Knyaz Oleg will become the first of the upgraded Project 955A submarines, which will boast smaller hulls and cons as well as even better acoustics and lower sound levels. The sixth Borei-class submarine is the SSBN Knyaz Suvorov.

    By 2020, the Defense Ministry plans to have eight Borei-class subs as the backbone of the naval component of the country’s strategic nuclear deterrent.

    FGFA Fighter deal likely during Modi’s November visit to Russia

    The deal has been stuck due to differences in work share.

    The final agreement for the joint development and production of a fifth generation fighter aircraft could be signed during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Russia in November, diplomatic sources told The Hindu on Thursday.

    Preparations are under way in both countries for the summit-level meeting to impart a qualitative boost to defence cooperation.

    Agreeing that differences exist, sources said without getting into the details that “a workaround has been found and discussions are in an advanced stage” and an agreement could be reached “by autumn”. The final deal is likely to be signed in November.

    The agreement on the fighter aircraft has been stuck because of differences in the work share between Sukhoi and Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd. (HAL). As the project is to have equal investment from each side, India has been insisting on parity in the work share. So far, both sides have invested $295 million for the preliminary design. India had some reservations on the engine and stealth characteristics.

    India has requested Russia to let its pilots fly the T-50 prototypes currently under testing. A decision by Russia on this is expected shortly. India plans to induct 144 fighters and the entire project is expected to cost over $30 billion. The first batch of aircraft is expected to be handed over to the Russian Air Force in early 2017.

    India in Talks With Russia on Purchasing Submarine Rescue Ship

    NEW DELHI (Sputnik) — Alexander Buzakov, the head of Admiralty Shipyards, said they had presented to Indian military representatives aboard a 21300-class vessel, the first ship of its kind to be commissioned by to the Russian Navy by the end of 2015.

    India has no ship capable of assisting nuclear and conventional submarines should they run into trouble at sea, the outlet noted.

    At present, its deep-sea rescue operations rely on foreign assistance.

    The Russian vessel can serve as a platform for manned rescue missions to depths of 1,000 feet and is equipped with two unmanned submersibles that can be operated remotely.

    In addition to selling RD-180 engines to China, Russia should also offer them for sale to India to help them with their access to space... they are very capable engines.

    Note this rescue sub is interesting... when they talk about 1,000ft or 300m operational depth you know it is what is says on the label... western deep diving rescue subs which operate down to extreme depths like 1000m were actually recon and clandestine subs used to patching into communications cables on the sea bed... if a sub sinks to 1,000m of water anyone on board is dead.

    Yes Garry, this deal should go through.

    However I am not sure if the deal between Russia and India for large scale construction of nuclear subs will go through.

    Russia's Eyes Massive Nuclear Submarine Deal with India

    I say this because though India needs nuclear subs desperately this deal could face massive legal problems in Russia. I am not sure if Russian lawmakers will allow India to buy/lease Yasen class submarines.

    RUSSIA - INDIA Military Contracts - Page 8 Empty Russia selects Anil Ambani’s Pipavav to make frigates for Indian Navy

    Post  Pinto on Thu Jul 16, 2015 10:45 am

    The Russian government has chosen Anil Ambani’s Pipavav shipyard for a ‘Make in India’ naval frigate order that is likely to exceed $3 billion, making it the private sector’s biggestever warship-building project.

    With public sector shipyards tied up in executing current orders and the Indian Navy battling to increase fleet strength, the government has been in advanced talks for the past several months with Russia for three to four upgraded Talwar class frigates, classified as Project 11356 vessels. Moscow, which has been keen to build the frigates at a Russian shipyard, was firmly told last year that the order would only be placed through the Make in India route but it would have the flexibility to choose an Indian partner for the project.

    After an evaluation of several Indian shipyards, including that of Larsen & Toubro, Russia has formally informed the defence ministry that Pipavav has been chosen as its Indian partner for the project. Officials said a formal letter was sent by Federal Service for Military Technical Cooperation (FSMTC) director Alexander Fomin last week confirming the partnership. The record deal is the first one landed by Pipavav after it was taken over by Anil Ambani’s Reliance Group recently. The contract for the new frigates is likely to be in the form of a government-togovernment order with Russia and could be signed this financial year with delivery expected over the next six to eight years. Vice-chief of naval staff, Vice-Admiral P Murugesan, has confirmed that exploratory talks have been on and, when decided, the frigate order will be under the Make in India initiative.

    Biggest warship project: Russia selects Anil Ambani's Pipavav to make frigates for Indian Navy

    The project brings together two of the government’s key themes. Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the Make in India initiative on August 15 last year as part of a manufacturing push to create jobs, raise incomes and help boost the economy. The government is also keen on greater private sector participation in defence, having eased overseas investment rules in this regard.

    The new stealth frigates will be a vital addition to the navy’s surface fleet that is fast being upgraded to meet security challenges in the region. India has already bought six Russian-built Talwar class frigates, the last of which was delivered in 2013.

    A team led by Russian deputy industry and trade minister Alexei Rakhmanov has been evaluating Indian shipyards for the project over the past few months. Among the yards visited were Mazgaon Dockyard Ltd, Cochin Shipyard Ltd and the L&T unit, with the final selection being based on the availability of infrastructure and capacity. Pipavav, which is currently executing a naval offshore patrol vessel order, has India’s largest shipbuilding facility.

    When contacted, a Reliance Group spokesperson said, “We are fully committed to the Make in India vision of our Prime Minister. Our mission is to build higher capabilities at the world-class facility that we have, to be able to serve the complete requirement of the Indian Navy.”

    While Russia’s United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) did not respond to a detailed questionnaire, one of its top executives told ET earlier this month that it was open to working with a private shipyard on the order. “We are ready to transfer technology to ensure the construction of these ships in India. The new ships that will be built will be different and more modern from the Talwar class that have been delivered,” Alexi Dikiy, director for military technical cooperation at USC, had told ET.

    The announcement of this appeared in the Indian press. It is known that the cost of the contract for the frigates could exceed $ 3 billion. From 2003 to 2013, the Indian Navy bought from Russia six frigates. They were built in the shipyards of St. Petersburg and Kaliningrad. Ships liking Indian seafarers. They were not very difficult to manage and maintain. At the same time, different powerful weapons, seaworthy and comfortable enough living conditions. It was decided to increase the number of frigates in the Indian Navy.

    Стало известно, что стоимость контракта на фрегаты может превысить сумму в 3 млрд долларов

    Seems Frigates are as expensive as the Ledar class destroyer. Or maybe optimizing the Frigates for Indian conditions cost a lot.

    Licence production is the most expensive way to buy things because you are basically building your own factory or upgrading the tooling of an existing factory and then training your own people to make the product.

    On the positive side is that at the end you get to keep the factory with the skilled workers who know how to make the product... and the extra money is spent inside your own economy.

    It creates more jobs at home and many skilled high paying jobs... not just unskilled labourers.

    Plus you know what has gone in to your products.

    Indian Air Force Eyes 48 Additional Mi-17 Helicopters From Russia

    The Indian Air Force reportedly proposed to acquire 48 additional military transport helicopters from Russia.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The Indian Air Force (IAF) proposed to acquire 48 additional military transport helicopters from Russia for $1.1 billion, local media reported Monday.

    The Economic Times cited sources as saying the plan to acquire Russia’s export-designated Mil Mi-17V-5 (NATO reporting name “Hip”) was due to replace the air force’s older fleet of Mi-8 transporters.

    The outlet added that the 48 additional aircraft – proven to be efficient in India’s difficult climate and terrain conditions – will breach the country’s “Make in India” concept, but form a backbone of the IAF’s existing fleet of Mi-17V-5s.

    Earlier this month, the deputy head of Russian Helicopters design and manufacturing company said it was prepared to deliver up to 250 of the light utility helicopters a year.

    India is Russia’s biggest customer in weapons and equipment purchases, including helicopters.

    Some 121 of Russia’s Mi-17V-5 have been supplied to India in the past five years, with a total of 300 Mi-8 and Mi-17 currently in service with the IAF.

    The Mi-17V-5 is the newest in Russia’s Mi-8/17 helicopter family. Designed for personnel transportation, the vehicle can be equipped with weapons used in search and rescue operations.

    During Russian President Vladimir Putin’s visit to India in December 2014, the countries agreed in principle to assemble 400 Mi-17 and Kamov-226T transport helicopters annually in India.

    Russia and India have reportedly signed a deal to jointly manufacture 200 military helicopters as part of an ongoing plan to intensify strategic relations between the two BRICS states.

    Russia will take part in the construction of 200 military helicopters in India, in a move aimed at diversifying bilateral strategic ties; some media reports said that the ‘copter in question is the Russian light multi-purpose helicopter Kamov Ka-226.

    Speaking to the Indian news agency PTI, Indian Ambassador to Russia PS Raghavan touted the recently-clinched agreement as part of the several defense projects the two countries are working on.

    "Recently, we have agreed to jointly manufacture helicopters in India… The joint manufacture of 200 helicopters in India is a big bang. If two countries decide to manufacture 200 helicopters in India with transfer of technology, and license production, it is a big bang," Raghavan said.

    Russia remains the largest supplier of military components to India, accounting for about 60 percent of India's defense procurement. The latest deal will certainly boost Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s "Make in India" program that was announced earlier this year.

    The term "big bang" has repeatedly been used by investors and Indian pundits to describe India's brand-new budget and reform proposals, which are typically stalled by the country's parliament.

    Raghavan, for his part, said that the two countries are also considering manufacturing Russian submarines and ships in India, which seeks to lure Russian companies into setting up joint ventures on Indian soil.

    Nicknamed the Hoodlum by NATO, the Ka-226 is a light transport utility vehicle used in police, military and rescue operations. It is a modernized twin turbine version of the successful reciprocative-engined Kamov Ka-26.

    The Ka-226's passenger version can carry up to seven people, while the transport version is capable of transporting one ton of cargo inside the fuselage or via an external sling. The Ka-226 is expected to replace the Cheetah and Chetak helicopters currently used by the Indian Army.

    The Indian Air Force reportedly proposed to acquire 48 additional military transport helicopters from Russia.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The Indian Air Force (IAF) proposed to acquire 48 additional military transport helicopters from Russia for $1.1 billion, local media reported Monday.

    The Economic Times cited sources as saying the plan to acquire Russia’s export-designated Mil Mi-17V-5 (NATO reporting name “Hip”) was due to replace the air force’s older fleet of Mi-8 transporters.

    The outlet added that the 48 additional aircraft – proven to be efficient in India’s difficult climate and terrain conditions – will breach the country’s “Make in India” concept, but form a backbone of the IAF’s existing fleet of Mi-17V-5s.

    Earlier this month, the deputy head of Russian Helicopters design and manufacturing company said it was prepared to deliver up to 250 of the light utility helicopters a year.
