    Two Major Defence Deals that Couldn't Fructify During Narendra Modi's Visit to Russia

    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 formalized.

    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.

    RUSSIA - INDIA Military Contracts - Page 12 Empty Russia on course to become India's largest defence partner again

    Post  Pinto on Mon Dec 28, 2015 7:46 pm

    After being in the dark for several years on India’s geopolitical canvas, Russia is making an emphatic comeback as India’s trusted and strategic partner and is on course to reclaiming the position as top supplier of defence hardware. Strangely, it is Prime Minister Narendra Modi, seen as pro-America, who is making it happen.

    “We have had excellent conversations over the past two days and very productive outcomes. It has deepened my conviction that this relationship truly meets the test of a special and privileged strategic partnership,” Mr. Modi said after talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow last week.

    This visit bridges the widening gulf between the two sides in recent times and plays a role in reaffirming ties with India’s oldest strategic partner.

    While both sides concluded 16 agreements across sectors, the most visible indicators of the renewed vigour in the partnership are in the defence sector. Russia still accounts for 70 per cent of Indian arsenal, but has in recent years been overtaken by Israel and the U.S. as the biggest hardware suppliers on an annual basis. Russia, however, still is the largest supplier due to spares and support for hardware in the inventory and the committed liabilities for programmes under way.

    It is no coincidence that the country’s first major project under the government’s ambitious ‘Make in India’ will be the production of Kamov-226T utility helicopters in India. Under the agreement, 200 Ka-226T helicopters will be built in India for which Russian helicopters will partner with India’s Reliance group to execute the program.

    “The Inter-Governmental Agreement on manufacture of Kamov 226 helicopter in India is the first project for a major defence platform under the Make in India mission. It is rightly with our most important defence partner,” Mr. Modi said addressing a press conference. While there was no announcement on the deal for five S-400 Triumf air defence systems estimated at $ 5-6 billion, senior defence officials said the process has just begun and price discovery has to be done as there are no other similar systems available in the market.

    “It might take 3-4 months’ time,” one senior defence official told The Hindu.

    Serious differences

    Two of the most ambitious joint development projects — the Medium Transport Aircraft (MTA) and the Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft (FGFA) — are, however, stuck due to serious differences.

    RUSSIA - INDIA Military Contracts - Page 12 Empty Rostech, HAL tie up for manufacturing Russian Kamov helicopters

    Post  Pinto on Tue Dec 29, 2015 7:12 pm

    The deal, under the 'Make in India' initiative is estimated to be worth $1 billion

    Russia's Rostech State Corporation has tied up with Hindustan Aeronautics Limited for manufacture of at least 200 Kamov 226T light helicopters to replace the ageing fleet of Cheetah and Chetak, in a deal estimated to be worth $1 billion under the 'Make in India' initiative.

    "The agreement with India is the result of the long work with our Indian partners," CEO of Rostec, Sergei Chemezov, said.

    "The organization for the manufacture of helicopters is provided by the creation of a Russian-Indian joint venture in India, which includes holdings of Rostec-JSC 'Rosoboronexport' and 'Russian Helicopters", and on the India side - the corporation 'HAL' (Hindustan Aeronautics Limited)," he said.

    This is the first Russian-Indian high-tech project implemented by the Indian government within the framework of the 'Make in India' programme.

    During the recent visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Moscow, an agreement was signed between the two countries on cooperation in the field of helicopter manufacturing.

    The document was signed in the presence of Modi and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

    According to the document, Rostec will organize in India the production of Russian Ka-226T and its modifications in the amount of not less than 200 units.

    The agreement also provides for maintenance, operation and repair of helicopters.

    Chemezov said that in future, the programme can be extended and both partners are considering the possibility of joint access to other markets as well.

    Incidentally, Modi is set to inaugurate a new helicopter production facility of HAL at Tumkur in Karnataka on Sunday. Sources said that while the facility would be used for manufacture of Advanced Light Helicopters, Kamov could also be built there.

    Defence Ministry had in August last year scrapped a scam-tainted tender worth over Rs 6,000 crore to procure 197 light utility helicopters for army and air force to replace the fleet of Cheetah and Chetak choppers, which are used to move troops and equipment to high-altitude locations like Siachen.

    Following Russia's offer to manufacture Kamov in India, the Defence Acquisition Council, chaired by Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, accepted it.

    Though the initial order is only for 200 helicopters, it is likely to be increased later on.

    In a report submitted to Parliament recently, the Comptroller and Auditor General of India said that out of the 181 Cheetah/Chetak helicopters held by the Army, 51 were 40 years or older and 78 were between 30-40 years old.

    A group of army officers wives had in March this year urged the Defence Minister to stop the use of "outdated" Cheetah and Chetak helicopters, which have claimed a number of lives in mishaps.

    RUSSIA - INDIA Military Contracts - Page 12 Empty Is Another Indo-Russian Defense Deal About to Falter?

    Post  Pinto on Wed Jan 13, 2016 2:30 pm

    India and Russia recently failed to agree on moving forward on a joint air transport project.

    A joint Indo-Russian project to develop a new medium-airlift military transport aircraft, the UAC/HAL II-214 Multi-role Transport Aircraft (MTA), is “almost shelved,” according to an Indian Defense Ministry source interviewed by Defense News.

    The recent December 23 meeting between Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Russian President Vladimir Putin failed to break the “stalemate” over the MTA program, a joint venture for which both countries have co-founded a new company, the Multi Role Transport Aircraft Ltd., established by Russia’s United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) and Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd. (HAL), both of which invested $300 million in the project.

    The new transport plane was expected to enter service by 2019. India was planning to purchase 45 and Russia around 100 aircraft. However, as of now, even the detailed design phase has not been worked out between UAC and HAL, despite a signed May 2012 general contract for the development of the aircraft.

    “The transport aircraft [project] may be shelved because of three reasons. One is engine and secondly there are some internal conflicts in Russia between various stakeholders which is not allowing the desired progress. Thirdly, life of the AN-32 has been extended and the aircraft (upgraded),” according to a senior Indian Air Force official speaking to Defense News on the condition of anonymity.

    “The MTA program is as good as dead, and a global tendering will take place,” he succinctly added. The Indian Air Force is not happy with the selection of the PD-14M turbofan engines and other technical decisions taken by Russian engineers.(Most importantly, India wants the MTA to operate in higher altitudes than the current technical configuration would allow.) The Russian side also wants to increase the program development budget, something that India vehemently opposes.

    The senior Indian Air Force official also noted that operational lifespan of the Indian Air Force’s fleet of Antonov AN-32 transport aircraft has been extended from 25 to 40 years.

    In 2009, the Indian Air Force signed a contract with Ukrspetsexport Corporation, Ukraine’s state-owned arms trading company, to upgrade its 104 AN-32 transport aircraft and extend their service life. The $400 million upgrades included improved avionics, modernization of the cockpit, and a payload capacity increase from 6.7 to 7.5 ton

    Forty aircraft were upgraded in Ukraine, according to IHS Jane’s Defense Weekly, whereas 64 planes were to be domestically overhauled at the Indian Air Force’s base repair depot at Kanpur through 2017.

    However, as I reported in March 2015 (See: “Did Ukraine Just Lose 5 Indian Air Force Planes?”), work in Kanpur had to be discontinued due to missing spare parts and the premature departure of Ukrainian engineers. It remains unclear whether work on the aircraft was continued in the following months.

    Additionally, India is seeking to replace its aging fleet of 56 Avro transport planes. So far no contract has been awarded to defense firms bidding for the estimated $3.5 billion tender.

    The Indian Air Force operates a host of different transport planes including five C-130 J Super Hercules, 17 Iljushin II-76s, a number of Dornier Do 228s, and more than a dozen Boeing C-17 Globemaster IIIs.

    During the annual India-Russia summit, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi also failed to resolve an ongoing disagreement between the two countries over the future of a joint fifth generation fighter program (See: “India and Russia Fail to Resolve Dispute Over Fifth Generation Fighter Jet”).

    RUSSIA - INDIA Military Contracts - Page 12 Empty Russian-Indian MTA project frozen — manufacturer

    Post  Pinto on Thu Jan 14, 2016 10:25 am

    The Russian-Indian joint project for the creation of a military transport plane has been frozen, CEO of the Ilyushin company Sergey Velmozhkin told reporters on Wednesday.

    "It has been frozen as a joint Russian-Indian project," the Ilyushin CEO said, commenting on the development of the plane that is also known as Il-214 and MTA.

    The contract on Il-214 has not been concluded with the Defence Ministry yet. "The preliminary design is practically ready. We’ll offer it, but the decision depends on the customer. Experts confirm that there is a demand indeed for such aircraft. We hope to clarify the issue somehow by the middle of the year," the CEO said.

    It was reported in early 2015 that Russia and India planned to agree in the third quarter of the year on the pre-contract documentation on the MTA program. The beginning of the main stage of the aircraft designing was planned for late 2015.

    According to documents, MTA is classified as a medium military transport airplane handling the transport of a broad range of cargo weighing 20 tons, for a distance of over two thousand kilometres with dirt or paved runways.

    The possibility of using the aircraft in high altitude (mountain) airports in different geographical or climatic conditions, day or night, in easy or adverse weather conditions is also being reviewed. As a military-transport aircraft, the MTA is designed to transport and para-drop personnel, cargoes, and technology on landing pads, and to drop off cargo without parachutes from low altitudes.

    Indian Air Force Mi-17s Looking for Defensive Sensors

    The Indian Air Force plans to equip its Mi-17 helicopters with small arms fire detection systems (SAFDS), which will warn pilots of the range, angle, and direction of incoming hostile ground fire. Mi-17s have recently been used for surveillance during domestic terror attacks, and during anti-Maoist operations in support of para-military forces. Kazan Helicopters will retrofit the equipment, once a vendor is identified and selected.

    The ideal SAFDS will be a light-weight strap-on version that can be deployed on different airframes, have day-night and all-weather operation capability, and function in all phases of flight. The Indian Armyy and Border Security Force are evaluating SAFDS for use along the Line of Control and hostile stretches of the International Border.

    Russian Company Ready to Supply Fighters for New Indian Aircraft Carrier

    Russian Aircraft Corporation MiG is ready to deliver the required number of naval MiG-29K/KUB multirole fighter aircraft for the new Indian Vishal aircraft carrier, a company spokeswoman, Anastasia Kravchenko, said Thursday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Wednesday, Indian media reported that Delhi requested four manufacturers' proposals to supply fighter aircraft designed for the new carrier, capable to carry over 50 aircraft.

    "MiG and the Indian Defense Ministry are long-term partners, we are bound by lasting successful cooperation. Of course, we are ready to supply fighters for a new aircraft carrier," Kravchenko told RIA Novosti.

    The Russian manufacturer supplied India with the similar aircraft for the Indian Vikramaditya aircraft carrier.

    The MIG Corporation is planning to finalize the delivery of 29 MiG-29K fighters to India by 2016 according to a contract signed in 2010.

    You mean catapult takeoff? Coz unless its VTOL you always land by arrest. But you can take off by catapult or ramp. And there is no reason for MiG29K not to be able to be modified for catapult launches its fairly minor change.

    If MIG 29K can be modified for CATAPULT capabability then its going to be strong contender, but dont know why many India- Russia projects are stuck in limbo now list includes S400, FGFA and medium role transport aircraft and there seems to be no credible information so far how this logjam can be cleared

    Well S400 deal is purely in Indian hands. FGFA is on hold till India peeks how well PAK-FA will go in Russia and when its about transport aircraft there are rumons India will instead just buy Super Hercules.

    India is just not a trust worthy partner for any nation.  As Werewolf said, Modi sits his ass on two seats, he will fall.

    Russia really needs to say to India that "you dont need to buy from us, but complain to us if we sell to people you dont like".

    The S-400 deal, and the transport plane deal was all India.  Russia wasnt even trying to sell S-400 to anyone at the moment.  India was the one to show interest.

    And yet, the current news seems to say otherwise. Militirov's point about the transport plane is an example of that, which makes sense.

    So, are you guys gonna get to manufacture those transport planes? Probably a wing at best.

    Recent issues steming like the PAK FA, and S-400 is also damning too. I would wager that the Ka helicopter deal will never materialize either. But hey, you guys get to have overpriced western aircraft (Rafale), 30 some odd of them (at extortion prices) and not a single one built in India. Good for you guys.

    well bro Indian cabinet has cleared S400 deal at the highest n last level of approval so that deal is on and some negotiations might be going on for some fine tuning which are not revealed for obvious reasons

    FGFA is having troubles and this will be sorted out as both Russians and Indians are destined to move together in this deal together sooner or later as china is making its own and India wont for American fighter

    I am not sure about building anything in India when its about Super Hercules. I mean they already signed contracts for like 12, half of which is delivered. So if they order them instead of cooperation with Russia they will need around 40-45 more, not sure if that order is big enough for Lockheed Martin to share building at all.

    I guess Ka226 deal will be a go, due to reason India rly rly needs those helicopters asap. Their light helicopter fleet is horrid.

    Recent issues steming like the PAK FA, and S-400 is also damning too.  I would wager that the Ka helicopter deal will never materialize either.  But hey, you guys get to have overpriced western aircraft (Rafale), 30 some odd of them (at extortion prices) and not a single one built in India.  Good for you guys.

    I am not sure about building anything in India when its about Super Hercules. I mean they already signed contracts for like 12, half of which is delivered. So if they order them instead of cooperation with Russia they will need around 40-45 more, not sure if that order is big enough for Lockheed Martin to share building at all.

    I guess Ka226 deal will be a go, due to reason India rly rly needs those helicopters asap. Their light helicopter fleet is horrid.

    lol very true india is using 60's helis in light category heli so the kamov deal is must and most urgent and it will be for 500 helis in the end the 200 is just a start thats why make in india route has been followed

    We will see. I am not as optimistic as you are Pindo simply from my understandings of what is happening of recent with India and any military deals, added in, their strange need to really push deals with the west. And simply, not trusting them altogether.

    well dear Rafale has 50% off set clause to follow which means half the amount would be invested back in india so its not going to be that costly if 4.5 b $ is invested back in indian industry

    Bro there is some irritants for Russia as of now like off set clause which is new thing for russia in dealing with India. this has been done to bring transparency and to boost local industry so the final product might be costly but off set clause ranging from 30-50% makes is viable and reasonable

    secondly Russia is finding it odd because as there are now open tenders and not govt to govt deals alone unlike S400 and FGFA which are going to be govt to govt deal

    Indian and Russia have deals worth 50 b $ stuck in logjams and its matter of time before glitches are cleared one by one. i am very optimistic about special Indo-Russian relations as India is not going to substitute these deals with western world because no one else will give India FGFA and S400 rather no one produces this air defence system

    Russian defense manufacturers needs to have lobby and better PR in India as the western n US lobbyist are on job to harm India- Russia defense deals
