    India is in very urgent need to finalize FGFA along with medium role transport air craft at the earliest possible hopefully in december when modi-putin summit takes place

    if its true then rafale deal will be over by 36 aircraft. mig 21 are bing upgraded just like jaguars so as to keep the minimum required strength of IAF flying till deal with Russia over FGFA is finalized and hopefully in december we may have this deal signed

    Well well well, apologies are in order, apparently the dates i recalled are dead wrong (perhaps from 2011 speculation), anyway in the graph below we see that the FGFA isn't to arrive till 2020, that said the PAK-FA-E (SU-50E) for India will be available by 2017/18.

    Apparently this is still going according to the 2012 schedule, by Chief of Air Staff of India, NAK Browne.

    The entire point of the MMRCA was to replace the Mirage and Mig-21 fleet with 126 modern aircraft for ~10B, but there stupid obsession with french aircraft led them to a deal that would cost them more then double that amount, now they spent that ~10B on 36 measly aircraft and have to pay extra to modernizing there Mirage and Mig-21 fleets.

    I think that the chart is just fan-art. It was posted several months ago in the PAK FA thread, and at first was assumed to be a official UAC/Sukhoi poster. But turns out it was fan made, and is apparently based on this similar Su-30 family breakdown.
    RUSSIA - INDIA Military Contracts - Page 11 <a href=RUSSIA - INDIA Military Contracts - Page 11 Su30-211" />

    To add my two cents, I think that when the PAK FA enters serial production (AFAIK this is is still on schedule for 2016), some of the flying T-50 prototypes might be provided to the IAF for them to fly and test. A six year period between first flight and entry into service isnt too bad (considering a full aspect stealth fighter is basically a first for the RuAF and Sukhoi), so I dont think its unreasonable to expect a derivative of the PAK FA (which is what the FGFA really is) to be two or three years behind. After all its not building a new aircraft from scratch, its taking what will be a finished product and modifiying it to IAF requirements, not to mention that a lot of the problems will have been ironed out with the PAK FA, thus shortening FGFA development time. So the stated 2018/19 FGFA dates are all right IMHO, as long as the IAF variant doesnt depart too much from the RuAF model. Smile

    What, fan-art, i thought something was off when it showed first prototype at '07 and the first production batch being based on the first prototype not the last, not to mention the Korean and Iranian variants.

    Anyway, the dates still seem legit, production version around 2016 and export should be available a year after.

    As for prototype testing, why, this isn't concurrent production like our western friends, just wait for it to be ready, and i am talking about the single seat export not the jointly produced FGFA.

    RUSSIA - INDIA Military Contracts - Page 11 Empty Russia to Deliver 3 Mi-17V-5 Helicopters to India in December

    Post  Pinto on Thu Nov 12, 2015 2:27 pm

    Russian Helicopters, a subsidiary of the Russian state technology company Rostec, will supply India with the last 3 Mi-17V-5.

    DUBAI (Sputnik) — Russian Helicopters, a subsidiary of the Russian state technology company Rostec, will supply India with the last 3 Mi-17V-5 (NATO reporting name Hip) military transport helicopters in the near future, the company’s deputy director general said Tuesday.

    "The implementation of the contract continues. In the near future, the last three helicopters will be shipped to the foreign customer," Alexander Shcherbinin told RIA Novosti during the Dubai Airshow-2015.

    Between 2012 and 2015, Russia delivered to India 148 Mi-17V-5s out of 151 stipulated by the contract, the company’s spokeswoman Ekaterina Pavlova stated in August.

    It is planned that the deal would be completely implemented by year-end.

    The Mi-17V-5 helicopter is the latest model in Russia's Mi-8/17 helicopter family. Designed for personnel transport, as well as for carrying cargo internally or on an external sling, it can be used in search and rescue operations, and be equipped with weapons.


    In 2008, Russia’s state arms exporter Rosoboronexport struck a deal to deliver 80 Mi-17V-5 helicopters to India. The agreement was implemented before the end of 2013. In 2012-2013, the sides added three supplements to the initial agreement to deliver 71 additional helicopters before the end of 2015.

    Mi-17s have been used in India since the government canceled an order for Italian helicopters amid corruption scandals involving Italian businessmen and Indian intermediaries.

    RUSSIA - INDIA Military Contracts - Page 11 Empty Centre to clear Russian military purchases ahead of Modi-Putin meet

    Post  Pinto on Thu Dec 17, 2015 7:08 am

    RUSSIA - INDIA Military Contracts - Page 11 Prime_minister_modi_brics_vladimir_putin_summit

    Days before Prime Minister Narendra Modi meets Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow on December 24, the Defence Acquisition Council (DAC) chaired by defence minister Manohar Parrikar is all set to clear on Thursday procurement of five S-400 supersonic air defence systems from Russia. Besides, the DAC will also clear a “Make in India” plan to raise six regiments of Pinaka multi-barrel rocket launcher systems (MRLS). The five S-400 systems will cost around Rs 40,000 crore, while the Pinaka systems will cost another Rs 14,000 crore.

    South Block sources said the acquisition of the S-400 system, which has a range from 40 to 400 km, depending on the missile fired, could be through the Request for Proposals (RFP) or government-to-government route. The acquisition will be discussed between Modi and Putin and may figure in the joint statement.

    Although the military had earlier projected a requirement of a dozen S-400 systems, the defence ministry is clear that only five systems are sufficient to take care of the future airborne threat from across India’s borders. The S-400 is a proven anti-aircraft system, and is widely considered the most advanced of its kind in the world, with the capability of engaging missiles as well as aircraft. It comes with a mobile launcher and a threat detection radar-cum-command centre. The deal includes purchase of some 6,000 missiles from Russia.

    The DAC is also expected to clear Pinaka MRLS that is expected to replace traditional artillery guns on the border. The Pinaka system can fire within seconds a barrage of unguided rockets with a range of up to 38 km to achieve a saturation bombing effect, or what is called area destruction. This kind of weapon system is lethal for troop and armour concentrations, and is also battle-proven.

    RUSSIA - INDIA Military Contracts - Page 11 Empty India May Buy Over $7Bln's Worth of Arms From Russia During Modi's Visit

    Post  Pinto on Mon Dec 21, 2015 1:11 pm

    India could purchase more than $7 billion’s worth of weapons from Russia, local media reported Monday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — In late November, the Indian Foreign Ministry told Sputnik that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was scheduled to visit Moscow on December 24-25.

    According to the Kommersant newspaper, breakthrough deals in the military-technical sphere could be expected from Modi’s visit. The total package of contracts is estimated to be worth more than $7 billion.

    God of War: Indra-2015 Russian-Indian Joint Military Exercise
    A source close to the Indian Defense Ministry told RIA Novosti last week that an agreement on joint Russian-Indian production of Ka-226T helicopters was likely to be signed either during or after Modi’s visit. An ambassadorial source told the media outlet that India’s arms purchase committee had approved the purchase of five S-400 air defense systems which could be worth around $5.8 billion.

    Russia and India have enjoyed mutually beneficial strategic relations, especially in the field of defense and military cooperation, since the 1960s. Russia is among India’s foremost weapons suppliers. Over two-thirds of the Indian Army, Air Force and Navy military equipment is Russian- or Soviet-made.

    RUSSIA - INDIA Military Contracts - Page 11 Empty India, Russia likely to sign deal for 4 stealth frigates

    Post  Pinto on Tue Dec 22, 2015 5:24 pm

    After a long hiatus, Russia is once again set to emerge as India’s top military hardware supplier with a slew of big ticket defence deals set to be announced during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit starting on Thursday. Collectively, the defence deals to be announced during Modi’s visit would be worth upwards of $10 billion.

    According to official sources, India is likely to sign a multi-billion dollar deal for four improved Krivak or Talwar class stealth frigates with Russia — expected to cost upwards of USD 3 billion — during the PM’s visit. This will be in addition to the two helicopter deals expected to be signed and the announcement on purchase of five S-400 Triumf air defence systems. With these deals Russia is likely to emerge once again as the top supplier of military hardware to India which in the last few years was taken over by the U.S.

    India had earlier procured six frigates of the same class in two different batches and has been very pleased with the performance of the 4,000 tonne state of the art frigates which pack a lot of firepower in comparison to their size.

    Like the earlier ships, these will also be built by Yantar shipyard but will additionally involve an Indian partner in line with the government’s ‘Make in India’ push. Officials said Pipavav shipyard owned by Anil Ambani’s Reliance group is likely to be the Indian partner in the deal. Incidentally Russian Navy too has recently ordered these ships for its Baltic fleet. Both sides have been in discussions for the additional frigates for some time but the deal was delayed as India insisted on building it through the ‘Make in India’ route. The deal was also partly delayed due to the engine issue. The engines are built by Zorya Nashproekt of Ukraine and after the crisis in Crimea, Ukraine has refused to supply engines to Russia. However, officials said the issue has been sorted and Ukraine has no reservations in supplying engines to India.

    CEO team
    The 18-member Indian CEO delegation accompanying Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Russia includes four company heads from defence companies.

    These include Anil Ambani, Chairman of Reliance group; Baba Kalyani, Chairman and MD of Bahart Forge; Sukaran Singh, CEO of Tata Advanced Systems; and Suvarna Raju, Chairman of Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL).

    Reliance is likely to partner Russian helicopters to build Kamov-226T utility helicopters in India and is also a contender for the ship project. Tata is in advanced stage of talks with Sukhoi to set up a Joint Venture to manufacture spares for Sukhoi fighters in India.

    No they arent. They are trying to sell you guys crap at extortion prices.  The spare parts issue has been due to the fact HAL screwed up royaly and no actual contracts were signed between India and Russia on spares.  It just so happened that Russia became a convenient scape goat for poor maintenance from Malaysian and Indian mechanics.

    As mentioned plenty other times, Russia is looking for a company in India to make the spares and chances are it will be Tata.

    More than likely it will. And something that escaped a lot of people about this deal is that it would further entice an agreement for upgrading the MKI's to a newer standard (which then will eventually leak to SM).

    of course under make in india, Russia can be the biggest gainer along with private indian industry if Russia makes its moves and chooses local parters at right point of time. FGFA deal in this visit looks doubtful but hopefully some serious progress is made on this

    RUSSIA - INDIA Military Contracts - Page 11 Empty Anil Ambani-led Reliance Group to sign pact with Russian company for Rs 30,000 crore Navy project

    Post  Pinto on Thu Dec 24, 2015 9:23 am

    MUMBAI: Anil Ambani-led Reliance Group is set to sign an agreement with Russian United Shipbuilding Company at Moscow on Thursday for manufacturing Rs 30,000 crore(5 b$) worth of four frigates for the Indian Navy, people close to the development told ET.

    These four 'Talwar class' frontline warships will be built at Reliance Group's recently acquired Pipavav shipyard in Gujarat.

    The deal, which coincides with Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Russia, involves building of warships in India and an arrangement for refitting and modernising all Indian Navy surface ships of Russian origin at Pipavav shipyard

    The total potential of the deal is Rs 60,000 crore(10 b $) over the next ten years, a person in the know said.

    India currently has 35 Russian and Soviet-made surface ships deployed by the navy.

    Reliance Group's Reliance Infrastructure recently concluded an open offer for Pipavav Defence & Offshore Engineering Co, which took the company's shareholding in the latter to 35 per cent.


    Reliance Infrastructure said recently that it plans to make its recent acquisition Pipavav Defence & Offshore exit corporate debt restructuring. Reliance Infrastructure acquired 18 per cent in the company from the promoters for Rs 819 crore, making its foray into the defence sector.

    The company will be renamed Reliance Defence and Engineering in January 2016.

    RUSSIA - INDIA Military Contracts - Page 11 Empty Reliance, AlmazAntey to work jointly on AD missile systems

    Post  Pinto on Thu Dec 24, 2015 2:07 pm

    AlmazAntey developed the S-400 Triumf air defence system that India plans to buy for about Rs 40,000 crore

    Reliance Defence Limited and Russia's leading developer and manufacturer of air defence missile systems 'AlmazAntey' have decided to work jointly on the entire range of air defence missile and radar systems that are required for Indian defence forces.

    AlmazAntey developed the S-400 Triumf air defence system that India plans to buy for about Rs 40,000 crore.

    "The two sides identified the Air Defence Missile Systems including the TOR-1M Missile Program, Radars and Automated Control Systems as areas of partnership under the 'Make in India' as well as Offset Policies of the Indian Ministry of Defence," a statement by Anil Ambani Reliance Group said.

    The two sides also discussed the joint implementation of modernization, repair and deep overhauls of AlmazAntey systems already in service with the Indian armed forces.

    They also discussed R&D cooperation for developing new products in the defence sector, the statement said.

    "Our proposed partnership will constitute an important milestone in the strategic relationship between the two countries," Ambani said.

    Reliance Defence Ltd is a wholly owned subsidiary of Reliance Infrastructure Limited.

    With industrial licenses for the full spectrum of military platforms, Reliance Defence is the fastest emerging private sector enterprise that is aiming for development, manufacture and supply of defence aerospace, land and naval platforms and equipment.

    RUSSIA - INDIA Military Contracts - Page 11 Empty Modi Seeks Russian Crown Jewel in Decade's Biggest Defense Deal

    Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi heads to Moscow after approving what’s set to be his nation’s biggest weapons deal with Russia since 2001, reaffirming a military partnership that newer suppliers like the U.S. will find difficult to dislodge.

    The S-400 air defense missile systems, which India plans to buy, are among the "crown jewels" of Russia’s defense capability, according to Jon Grevatt, Asia-Pacific defense-industry analyst for IHS Jane’s. The two-day visit starting Dec. 23 will also include a private dinner with Russian President Vladimir Putin and an event at the Kremlin with Russian and Indian chief executives.


    "Russia and India have a very strong partnership that the U.S. can only aspire to," said Grevatt. "Sales from America may ebb and flow, but the sales from Russia will remain strong because there are so many ongoing programs between the two countries.

    "
    The $150 billion that Modi plans to spend to upgrade his military could be a welcome diversion for Putin, who’s bracing for a second year of recession amid Western sanctions. Although the U.S. emerged as India’s biggest defense supplier last fiscal year, the Asian nation’s links with Russia stretch back to their Soviet-era ties.

    Putin hosts Modi in Moscow for the annual bilateral summit after visiting New Delhi last year. The leaders have also displayed a friendly rapport: Putin, who holds a black belt in judo, promised Modi he’d try yoga at a meeting earlier this year.

    "The best thing is that he knows how to maintain relations," Modi said of Putin in an interview with Russia’s state-run TASS news service published Wednesday. "He has a special strength to sacrifice for the relations. It is rarely found," he said, predicting Russia’s global stature would grow and foster world peace.

    Modi arrives on Wednesday evening in time for dinner with Putin. The two leaders hold their summit the following day before meeting with business leaders. Modi is also scheduled to visit Russia’s emergencies ministry and speak at a Friends-of-India event expected to draw 3,000 people before departing Thursday evening.

    On the way home, he may stop by Kabul to inaugurate Afghanistan’s new parliament built by India, the Press Trust of India reported, citing people it didn’t identify.

    Missile Shield

    India’s defense acquisition panel last week approved the purchase of five S-400 systems. While the price is still to be negotiated, it’s likely to cost about $4.5 billion, a defense ministry official said, asking not to be identified because the detail isn’t public yet.

    That would make it the biggest deal by value since 2001, when India agreed to buy 140 Su-30MK Sukhoi fighter jets, which the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute estimates to be worth as much as $5.4 billion.


    "Beyond speed, it will also increase the ability of the Indian forces to engage multiple targets and at a long range," Anurag Garg, a director at PwC’s strategy consulting group, said of the S-400. "This is important to restore the strategic balance of power with China in the region and to have a credible defense against Pakistan’s fighters and ballistic missiles."
    Russian Ties

    Modi and Putin will discuss defense and nuclear cooperation, as well as ways to work together in oil and coal, India’s Foreign Secretary S. Jaishankar told reporters on Tuesday. Indian Oil Chairman B. Ashok and Oil India Chairman U. P. Singh will accompany Modi, the companies’ spokesmen said on Tuesday.

    Other potential deals from the trip include:

    Kamov OAO may name an Indian partner to build 200 Ka-226T light military cargo helicopters in India; the deal may be valued at $1 billion, India TV reported

    Lease of a second nuclear-powered attack submarine from Russia. First submarine was leased in 2012 for $1 billion over 10 years
    Indian navy order for three Russian frigate warships. India paid about $1 billion for three Talwar-class frigates in 1997

    Agreement to re-start joint development of a fifth-generation fighter aircraft, stalled for two years over cost differences. Estimated project value: $10 billion

    About $7 billion worth of deals will be agreed during the visit, according to Konstantin Makienko, deputy director of the Center for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies, which advises Russia’s defense ministry. India would need to purchase the S-400s directly from the Russian government if it wants delivery by 2018, he added.

    The U.S. surpassed Russia as India’s top supplier of defense equipment in the three years to March 2014, followed by France and Israel, according to the Indian government, which hasn’t provided more recent figures.
    However, this doesn’t capture Russian components that India imports to use under license, according to Siemon Wezeman, a senior researcher at the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.

    "Russia was the leader in India’s market, now it is one of the leaders," Makienko said by phone. "Modi’s visit can give a significant boost for Russian exports to India, because Russia is in some way an exclusive supplier, which offers joint production."

    RUSSIA - INDIA Military Contracts - Page 11 Empty Two major defence deals that couldn't fructify during Narendra Modi's visit to Russia

    Post  Pinto on Sun Dec 27, 2015 4:53 pm

    According to sources, proposal for four Talwar class frigates – stealth warships with guided missiles - were on agenda for summit meeting between Modi and Russian president Vladimir Putin but didn't find mention in the two countries; joint statement.

    Even as a $1 billion worth contract over manufacturing Kamov KA 226 light helicopters turns out the mainstay of India-Russia defence cooperation achieved during prime minister Narendra Modi's latest visit to Moscow that concluded on Thursday, two other prominent defence deals that were being looked at failed to get formalised.

    According to sources, proposal for four Talwar class frigates – stealth warships with guided missiles - were on agenda for summit meeting between Modi and Russian president Vladimir Putin but didn't find mention in the two countries; joint statement.

    Four frontline warships, sources said are to be built built at a cost of around Rs 30,000 crore at a private shipyard in Gujarat and a formal agreement was expected during PM's visit.

    A partnership for refit and modernisation of all Indian Navy surface ships of Russian and Soviet origin too was expected on the discussion table but no announcement was made in this regard.Currently, there are 35 Russian / Soviet-origin surface ships in the Indian Navy fleet. The value of this business is estimated to be over Rs 35,000 crore. And the combined value of above two opportunities exceeded USD 10 Bn ( INR 66,000 Cr) over next ten years.


    Besides, India's recent decision for purchase of nearly Rs 40,000 crore Russian S-400 Triumf air defence missile systems too didn't form a part of the joint declaration.

    Ministry of Defence's Dfenec Acquisition Council had given a go-ahead for the Russian air defence systems on December 17.

    Twin engine Kamov choppers are believed to become mainstay of Indian Army in mountaneous sectors for their unique utility and an agreement over them is the 'first major platform under Make in India.

    A total of 16 agreements were signed between the two countries.
