Indian Navy reports problems with Russian carrier, aircraft

Reuben F Johnson, Washington, DC - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly

07 July 2016


The Indian Navy maintains that the MiG-29Ks it has received from Russia have been delivered in a substandard configuration.

There are still a number of problems with India's Russian-built Mikoyan MiG-29K/KUB aircraft, as well as with the aircraft carrier formerly known as Admiral Gorshkov that entered Indian Navy service in 2013, sources in India have told IHS Jane's .

The complaints about the MiG-29K/KUB aircraft are generally due to the inability of the Russian firm RSK-MiG to deliver a complete aircraft that incorporates all of the features promised in the contractual documents signed by both parties.

Indian experts who have visited the test base at Goa, where flight training with the aircraft is conducted, report that the MiG-29Ks are being delivered to India in a substandard configuration. The aircraft, said one specialist who visited the Goa base recently, "are literally being upgraded and brought up to spec while on the flightline".

The chief culprit in this dilemma, say both Indian and Russian specialists, are the combined embargoes enacted by the Ukrainian government that bar the export of any military-use items to Russia, along with the EU and US sanctions that prohibit the export of Western military components to Moscow. The 'workaround' has been for India to import these items directly, then have them integrated onto the aircraft on-site at the Goa base.

The MiG-29K for India differs from the MiG-29KR aircraft being built for the Russian Navy (VMF) in that the Indian-produced and foreign-made components are deleted in the configuration of the latter aircraft and replaced by Russian-made systems.

The Russian-supplied carrier, which has been renamed INS Vikramaditya , is a re-built and modified Kiev-class cruiser that has been converted into a fully capable short take-off but arrested recovery (STOBAR) aircraft carrier by Russia's Sevmash shipyards.

INS Vikramaditya has its own shortcomings in that it is still not fully equipped for carrier operations. "One of the items still lacking is a proper emergency landing barrier for other-than-normal landings aboard the ship," said one Indian specialist.

MiG-29K, l’Inde et la Russie contournent l’embargo !





L’approvisionnement en systèmes pour les MiG-29K/KUB indiens n’est pas encore complètement réglé, la faute aux embargos combinés édictés par le gouvernement ukrainien qui empêchent l'exportation de tous les articles à usage militaire à la Russie, ainsi que les sanctions européennes et américaines qui interdisent l'exportation de composants militaires à Moscou.

La société russe RSK MiG éprouve des difficultés à livrer un avion complet qui intègre toutes les fonctionnalités promises à la marine indienne et ceci car certains fournisseurs se trouvent en Ukraine. De fait, l’Inde à jusqu’ici importé directement ces systèmes pour les intégrer sur sa flotte de MiG-29K/KUB. Certains systèmes qui auraient dû provenir de fournisseurs occidentaux sont remplacés par des produits entièrement russes.

A terme, l’Inde et la Russie prévoient de partager la fabrication de ces systèmes et de les intégrer directement sans avoir à dépendre de l’Ukraine ni de l’Occident.

Pour la Russie et l’Inde c’est l’occasion de diminuer la dépendance en matière de systèmes militaires et de renforcer la coopération et le développement de ceux-ci. Comme dans la cas des moteurs d’hélicoptères, l’embargo semble au final jouer en la faveur des russes.



Le MiG-29K/KUB :

Le MiG-29K/KUB est un appareil multirôles, destiné à assurer la maîtrise aérienne et à remplir différentes missions de combat de jour comme de nuit, dans toutes les conditions météorologiques et ceci depuis un porte-avions. Cette version navalisée du célèbre appareil russe, tant le monoplace «K» que le biplaces «KUB» font partie de la génération améliorée de la famille MiG-29.

Cette nouvelle génération de MiG se classe au sein des appareils dit : 4+ multirôles destinés à la défense aérienne des missions des forces navales, la supériorité aérienne gagne, la mer et au sol la destruction des cibles avec la haute précision guidée jour et nuit des armes et dans toutes les conditions météorologiques.

Les MiG-29K/KUB sont basés sur les porte-avions, dont le tonnage est de 28.000 tonnes, équipés de rampe de décollage et d'atterrissage. Les principales innovations du MiG-29K/KUB sont :

- L'amélioration de la cellule avec environ 15% d'application de matériaux composites.

- L'aile pliante est aménagée avec une amélioration du dispositif hypersustentateur.

- Système de contrôle Fly-by-Wire avec quadruple redondance.

- Réduction considérable de la signature radar.

- Augmentation de la charge des armes, stockées sur huit points externes.

- Augmentation de la capacité interne de carburant et en vol possibilité de ravitaillement.

La motorisation comprend deux moteurs Klimov RD-33MK avec puissance accrue, équipé d'une chambre de combustion sans fumée et le nouveau système de contrôle électronique (de type FADEC).

Les MIG-29K/KUB dispose d’un radar multi-mode "pulse-Doppler" de type "Zhuk-ME" fabriqué par "Fazotron-INPI" Corporation. En comparaison avec les radars de la génération précédente, le "Zhuk-ME" dispose d’un plus grand angle de balayage en azimut, offrant une portée de détection deux fois plus longue. Le "Zhuk-ME" permet le suivi de 10 cibles aériennes avec quatre cibles en tirs simultané de missiles. Par la suite, les MiG-29K/KUB devraient recevoir le radar «Zhuk-AE» doté d’une antenne à balayage électronique (AESA). Les MiG-29K/KUB sont équipés d’un canal IRST et d’un système de désignation laser d’illumination, destiné aux cibles terrestres

A ce jour, l’Inde a passé commande pour 16 Mig-29K/KUB avec options pour 30 et la Russie pour 20 appareils.

Boeing and Mahindra open C-17 training centre in India

Jon Grevatt, Bangkok - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
11 July 2016



Boeing and Mahindra Defence Systems (MDS), a division of the Mahindra group, have inaugurated a training centre to support the Indian Air Force's (IAF's) operation of its Boeing C-17 Globemaster III transport aircraft.

The centre officially opened on 8 July and, once fully operational, will conduct "local and multisite simulations" for added realism and more robust C-17 training, said Boeing in a statement.

The joint Boeing-MDS facility is located at the Flight Simulation Technique Centre in Gurgaon near New Delhi and features simulation, courseware and computer-based training to support operations including military airlift, humanitarian missions, aerial refuelling and emergency procedures.

Indian new Rustom-II combat drone will be tested by the end of July
Jul 11, 2016


The first flight of India’s new combat-capable unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) Rustom-II is scheduled to be held by the end of July in Chitradurga test flight range, that reported by deccanherald.com.

Scientists at the Aeronautical Development Establishment (ADE) would move to the test range later this week for the trial as an window between July 28 and August 2 would be kept open for the flight in the presence of Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar.

Once ready, the medium-altitude, long-endurance (Male) UAV is likely to be an asset for the military not only for its surveillance capability, but also for its ability to be used as an unmanned armed combat vehicle in the line of the US’s Predator that New Delhi is interested to buy.

“Rustom-II is a very big platform with a range of 250 km. However, for the first flight we will be flying it up to a distance of 50-100 km,” said a source associated with the UAV’s development.

Compared to Rustom-I that was test flown for the first time in November 2009, Rustom-II will be having Electronic Intelligence, Communication Intelligence, Medium and Long-Range Electro-optic Payloads and Synthetic Aperture Radar that will enable it to see through the clouds.

“Rustom-I is a primitive vehicle with minimal capabilities. Rustom-II, on the other hand, has several capabilities, including the ability to carry weapons,” G Satheesh Reddy, Scientific Adviser to Raksha Mantri, told DH.

Once fully ready, Rustom UAVs are meant to replace Israeli Heron unmanned aerial vehicles being used by the air force and the navy. The aircraft is named after former Indian Institute of Science professor Rustom Damania, who pioneered aviation research in India in the 1980s.

Addressing a seminar on UAV in Delhi last November, an ADE official stated that the three services initially projected a requirement of 76 of these platforms.

However, like many other defence research and development organisation (DRDO) projects, Rustom-II is also facing time overrun as the production schedule, first fixed for 2016, has now been pushed to 2017 with the possibility that it may get further delayed.

The biggest challenge faced by the scientists is the excess weight of the airframe. The airframe had a weight of about 2,400 kg by 2015 end, which ADE scientists would have to bring down to about 1,700 kg in the final version for accommodating every sensor package.

Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd and Bharat Electronics Ltd partners DRDO in the development of Rustom-II and has committed several hundred crores as financial support.

Russian, Indian Militaries Are About to Launch Talks On Indra 2016 Drills


The final stage of Russian-Indian talks on the Indra 2016 joint war games began Tuesday in Russia’s Far Eastern coast, a senior military spokesman of the Eastern Military District said.

VLADIVOSTOK (Sputnik) — The final leg of talks between Russia and India on the Indra 2016 joint war games began Tuesday in Russia’s Far Eastern coast, a senior military spokesman of the Eastern Military District said.

Russian and Indian armed forces are expected to participate in three major exercises this year – the Indra Neva 2016 naval training, AviaIndra 2016 air and anti-aircraft drills, and Indra 2016 combined-arms exercise.

"At this state of consultations, military representatives in charge of conducting the exercises on both sides will discuss proceedings of joint…maneuvers and sign the final protocol at the conference," Roman Martov said.

The Indra exercises were first held in 2003. They aim at increasing interoperability between the Russian and Indian forces. The Russian Defense Ministry estimates a total of 500 service members will take part in the drills.

ndia to Lease One More Akula-Class Nuclear Sub From Russian Navy


ndia agreed to lease the second Akula-class submarine from the Russian Navy, local media reported Tuesday citing a source in the military.


MOSCOW (Sputnik) — In 2010, India began a 10-year lease of the nuclear-powered attack Akula-class submarine Nerpa. After joining India's Navy, the submarine was renamed to INS Chakra.
"India agreed to lease a project 971 submarine which will be withdrawn from the Russian Navy," the source told Kommersant newspaper.

Akula-class submarines feature very low acoustic signatures and can carry up to 12 submarine-launched cruise missiles with nuclear warheads and a range of 3,000 kilometers (1,860 miles) in addition to anti-ship missiles and torpedoes.

F-16 Block 70/72 Specially made for India fighter jets by 2019-20 : Report




Citation :
S defence major Lockheed Martin has firmed up its plans to produce the latest version of its iconic F-16 fighter jets only in India under the ‘Make in India’ programme. The multi-billion dollar deal was “finalised” during the recent visit of Lockheed Martin’s Chairman, President and CEO Marillyn Hewson here last week, a top official, involved in the talks, toldBusinessLine.

‘Exclusively’ in India Under the deal, the company will be manufacturing the latest version of the jets – F-16 Block 70/72 – that will be produced “exclusively” in India. This will be the “most advanced” version and will not be built anywhere else in the world.

Lockheed Martin also plans to export them from the India plant at a later stage, the official said. The F-16 project is a government-to-government deal that will be conducted through the Foreign Military Sales (FMS) route. However, it seems Lockheed Martin has no plans to take the 100 per cent foreign direct investment route for the programme.

It is likely to co-produce the F-16s in collaboration with the Tata Advanced Systems Ltd., which has been its partner for other defence and aerospace programmes such as the C-130 cargo plane. The Maryland-based firm is currently scouting for land to set up its manufacturing unit. According to sources, it is looking to set up the plant in a State that will have a runway near a port. India had long been demanding that the F-16s it buys will have to be more advanced than what is sold to neighbouring Pakistan.

However, with the recent push on India-US defence ties, talks on setting up the F-16 plant in India have steadily progressed. The deal was “almost finalised” when Prime Minister Narendra Modi had visited Washington last month. During this visit, Modi finalised the Logistics Exchange Memorandum of Agreement (LEMOA) with the US, which is one of the three crucial foundational agreements that strengthened India-US defence ties. India is also negotiating the remaining two foundational pacts with US. As a result, the F-16 programme of Lockheed Martin received a major thrust due to this strengthening of ties. Indian Air Force is in desperate need of modern fighter aircraft as it grapples with an ageing fleet.

India considers venture fund for offsets

Jon Grevatt, Bangkok - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
18 July 2016

The Indian Ministry of Defence (MoD) is considering the introduction of a scheme through which foreign contractors are able to discharge offset obligations by investing in venture capital funds.

Reports in India said the proposal would allow foreign companies to discharge up to 25% of their offset obligations by investing in government-approved funds that would channel the finances into Indian industry, particularly small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

The rationale behind the proposal is to further expand the activities through which foreign original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) can discharge offset obligations and to support SME efforts in developing capability to manufacture and develop defence products.

India Set to Miss Another Promise Over Rafale Fighter Jet Deal


India's deal with France to purchase Rafale fighter planes is taking more time than expected as the two sides have yet to reconcile their differences over a number of issues related to the deal.

NEW DELHI (Sputnik) — Manohar Parrikar, India's Defense Minister, says "the negotiations are underway and the inter-government agreement and offset contract are yet to be finalized.

The details, including a transfer of technology through offsets, will emerge after the negotiations are completed."

Replying to a query over the Rafale deal, Manohar Parrikar informed parliamentarians that the parties to the deal will decide whether or not the fighter jets are manufactured locally once negotiations are completed.

However, Parrikar clarified that the Rafale aircraft being procured will have advanced features like active electronically scanned array radar systems, the capacity for mid-air refueling and advanced electronic warfare equipment as part of their design.

Last week, the Defence Acquisition Council (DAC), the top decision-making body within India's Defense Ministry, rejected France's offer to sell 36 Rafale fighters for 8.49 bln USD. Sources say the DAC is seeking a further price reduction. Recently, France also proposed that it would assist India in reviving the unsuccessful Kaveri gas turbine jet engine project and a host of other projects including the manufacturing of fighter jet components, but it would take a final call only after the contract for procurement of Rafale jets was formally signed. According to sources, India has involed the French Embassy in order to expedite the negotiations, which remain mired amid many issues.
On January 26, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and visiting French President Francois Hollande suggested in a joint statement that negotiations for the purchase of 36 Rafale medium multi-role combat aircraft were nearly complete. Later, Manohar Parrikar, India's Minister of Defense, set a deadline of June 2016 for the deal. However, the deal still hasn't been announced.

India Moves Nearly One Hundred Tanks, Troops to Chinese Border

With tensions rising between China and India, New Delhi has deployed nearly 100 tanks to its eastern border.

The mountainous region of Ladakh, in northern India, lies in a tense location between disputed Kashmir and Tibet. In an effort to boost its military presence in the area, the Indian military has sent Russian-made T-72 tanks to Ladakh’s Chinese border.



"The vast flat valleys along the mountain ranges allow for armored movement; besides, there has been an increase in the force levels across the border," an unnamed military official told NDTV.

The tanks have undergone significant upgrades to be better outfitted for the region’s climate.

"We have procured special additives and lubricants for high-altitude terrain such as winter-grade diesel and additives for the lubrication system, which prevents it from freezing in the tank," Colonel Vijay Dalal told The Hindu.

This marks the third regiment placed in Ladakh by India since 2014.

Tensions between the neighbors have been building recently. Earlier this month, the Indian Navy deployed three ships to the South China Sea.

India Constructs Special Dock to Build High-Capacity Aircraft Carriers


he new dock will not only serve a military purpose, but will also play an important role in fulfilling India's energy requirements.

NEW DELHI (Sputnik) — India is constructing a special dock for high-capacity aircraft carriers at the existing premises of Cochin Shipyard Limited. According to official sources, the new dry dock will cost an estimated $270 million.

"The objective is to augment the shipbuilding/ship repair capacity essentially required to tap the market potential by building specialized and technologically advanced large vessels such as liquefied natural gas (LNG) vessels, higher-capacity domestic aircraft carriers, jackup rigs, drill ships, large dredgers and larger vessels, as well as by repairing offshore platforms," read an official statement.


Indian Navy Captain Gurpreet S. Khurana, Executive Director of the National Maritime Foundation told Sputnik, "Notwithstanding the Russian offer to India to jointly develop a 100,000 metric ton nuclear aircraft carrier, in my view, India is unlikely to plan for such a large carrier in the foreseeable future. In my considered opinion, we would be building a 60,000-70,000 ton aircraft carrier."
India is planning to produce its domestic aircraft carrier Vishal, which is being designed to be between 60,000 and 70,000 tons. Current shipyards were considered based on their capacity for handling the construction of such a large carrier. Meanwhile, India's first domestically-made aircraft carrier has been under construction at Cochin shipyard since 2009. Currently, India operates two conventional aircraft carriers; INS Vikramaditya & INS Viraat. The INS Viraat will be decommissioned from the Navy soon.

"India needs three carriers because at any given time one carrier is being refit or undergoing repair; at least two carriers should be available to resolve issues during unforeseen emergencies…this dry dock is very important strategically, especially during a warlike situation, when our naval ships may need immediate urgent repair," says Khurana.



India is also targeting the repair of offshore platforms and larger vessels. Captain Khurana stated that this would create lot of economic dividends for India and that the shipbuilding industry would get a boost. Cochin is very close to the international shipping lane which passes south of Sri Lanka. Cochin has tremendous potential for servicing foreign ships, which may also seek to get repaired and refitted at the proposed dock.
Captain Khurana explains another strategic value of the proposed dry dock. "We also may be building some LNG (Liquified Natural Gas) carriers. LNG also has strategic needs. We have no LNG carrier and the energy demand of the country is growing like anything. So it is always good for strategic reasons, in case there will be war tomorrow, to have our own LNG carrier rather than using foreign ships for carrying strategic cargo."

India imports 14.6 million tons of LNG per year. India's demand for LNG is reportedly growing at rate of more than 40% annually. The Indian government is pushing hard to get a maximum amount of cheaper LNG available in the global market.

India Will Continue Buying Weapons from Russia
(Source: Rostec; issued July 19, 2016)
T-90 tanks, Su-30MKI fighters, Ka-226 helicopters, the C-400 Triumph air defense systems are set to consolidate the military and technical cooperation between Russia and India, according to Izvestiya.

Victor Kladov, Director of International Cooperation and Regional Policy at Rostec State Corporation, told Izvestiya that Delhi intends to strengthen its combat readiness through the procurement of equipment and the joint production of Russian armaments and equipment.

“India is one of the main strategic partners of Russia in the field of military and technical cooperation,” said Victor Kladov. “Our relations are of a target-based and long-term nature. We have a number of joint production facilities in India: in the future, they will produce at least 1,000 T-90 tanks, 250 Su-30 MKI fighters and 200 Ka-226 helicopters.”

“The annual GDP increase of 9% in India has meant that the country can buy what it wants,” said Vadim Kozyulin, Professor of the Military Science Academy. “And enough blind spots have appeared in this respect.” As a result, India has begun to pay more and more attention not to Russian but Western military products. Eventually, Russia consistently lost a few large tenders on the shipment of military transport airplanes to this country. Instead of our Il-76, Delhi preferred to buy six American C-130 Super Hercules. They paid nearly USD 1 billion for them. The amount is astronomical, especially if you take into account that the Il-76 would be considerably cheaper.

“Our most advanced Mig-35 gave way to the French Rafale, the Mi-28H combat helicopter lost to the American AH-64 Apache, and the Mi-26T2 heavy transport helicopter lost to the CH-47 Chinook. And this is despite the fact that the Russian plane is more advanced and fully digital, flies one and a half times further, and has double the cargo volume than its American counterpart.”

But as Victor Kladov stated, Moscow and Delhi have more ambitious projects for the future.

For example, on the creation of the second aircraft carrier for the Indian Navy. Vikrant, the first built based on our project, is undergoing tests. The second is Storm, the project 23000 nuclear aircraft carrier. The Krylov State Research Center, jointly with Nevskoe Design Bureau, has developed the ship's conceptual design and, as reported by Defense News, a British publication which is an authority in military and industrial policy, it has already been presented to the Indian Ministry of Defense. The full deadweight of the ship is of 100,000 tons, its length is 300 meters, and its width is 40 meters. It can accommodate 4,000–5,000 crew members, and perform combat missions at sea with storm forces of category 6–7. The wing of the cruiser will have up to 100 aircrafts of different classes.

Storm can hold the Mig-29K/KUB naval fighters that Deli has already procured as well as the prospective FGFA (export name of the Advanced Frontline Aircraft System, or T-50 (Indian version): Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft). After several years of negotiations, Deli has decided to ease its requirements for the destroyer and is ready to sign a contract according to which its parties shall invest USD 4 billion each instead of 8 billion as it was proposed earlier. This sum shall include the cost of prototyping, test programming, building the production facilities and assembly lines, storage and auxiliary facilities, as well as the manufacture of at least 200 machines.

“There is a great row around the shipment of Rafale French fighters to India,” said Ruslan Puchov, head of the Center for the Analysis of Strategies and Technologies (CAST). “In violation of the contract, Paris has not only doubled the price per plane but also refuses to transfer Deli the fighter production core technologies. No such problems have emerged with Russia. We have already transferred to India the production of T-90 tanks and Su-30MKI fighters, and we are preparing the site to produce our future prospective helicopters, the Ka-226. I am sure that FGFA production will be also be established.”

As the expert states, the process of building military and technical relations and transfer of technologies is not somehow tied to politics. Providing its own project developments, Moscow gives Deli the right to manage them independently, Ruslan Puchov stated. One of the main examples is the BraMos supersonic anti-ship missile. Pravin Patak, an authorized agent of the company reported to Izvestiya that for the moment the missile has been put into service in the navy and army of India. In September, it will undergo tests as part of the Su-30 MKI fighter armament. With that, Moscow provides India full rights to promote the missile to any markets.

“India remains the largest customer of Russian equipment,” said Vadim Kozyulin. “From 2012 to 2015, 162 contracts on arms procurement were signed including 18 with us and 13 with the Americans. Their number is not impressive, but these are very large contracts that shape the future. Unlike the West, we are not only ready and willing to supply the equipment, but also to transfer the manufacturing technologies, which the West will never do.”

Lockheed Martin expected to make f-35 offer to Indian Airforce in an upcoming meeting with indian officials
Jul 23, 2016



Accompanied by a high-level official delegation and representatives of several US defence companies, under secretary of defence for acquisition, technology and logistics Frank Kendall will arrive here next week. That reported by nomanslandd.weebly.com.

Topping his agenda would be the review of existing transfers and identifying new high-end technologies to strengthen New Delhi’s military capabilities. Kendall, a top Pentagon official, will reach Delhi on July 27 for the joint technology group meeting with India’s defence secretary G Mohan Kumar. He is also the US’ point person for the bilateral Defence Technology and Trade Initiative (DTTI).

Highly-placed sources told FE that the heads of several defence majors including General Atomics, Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Honeywell and Raytheon are accompanying him and they will interact with the Indian defence industry captains at a breakfast meeting on July 27. In a joint statement at the end of PM Modi’s recent visit, the US welcomed India’s ratification of the Convention on Supplementary Compensation for Nuclear Damage earlier this year and the significant steps taken by Nuclear Power Corporation of India and Westinghouse towards finalising contractual negotiations by June 2017 on a deal to build six AP1000 reactors in India by 2030. The joint statement stated, “Once completed, this project will fulfill the promise of the US-India civil nuclear agreement, will create jobs in both the United States and India, and will advance our shared clean energy objectives”.

US company General Atomics, which is in talks with the Indian Navy for unmanned aerospace systems, is also a world leader in radiation monitoring systems for nuclear power plants at over 120 sites globally. General Atomics is eyeing huge opportunities in India along with Westinghouse and other nuclear reactor makers. Vivek Lall, global chief executive at General Atomics, will also be interacting with the Indian industry captains. Incidentally, American aerospace majors Lockheed Martin and Boeing have been offering shifting of whole production facilities to India for the F-16 and F-18 ‘Hornets’. “Both companies have made two rounds of presentations to the ministry of defence. Lockheed Martin has been told by the authorities that India is not keen on F-16s and Boeing, which through its tie up with Tata Aerospace, is already making components in India that are used on board its fighter jets,” said sources.

However, after getting clearances from the Obama administration on what information can be provided to India by the two aerospace companies, Lockheed Martin is expected to offer F-35 for the Indian Air Force and Boeing might offer making more parts that could be fitted on board the F-18s.

Kolkata-class destroyer: a step above the rest
Jul 24, 2016





As the ship silently pierces through the high waves in the rather calm ocean . Invisible to the untrained naked eye under the shallow full moon the captain of the ship announces that all operational procedures are to be followed and proceed according to the orders. All hands were on deck. The only noise you could hear was the radio chatter in the background and the powerful 9,000 HP engine silently humming propelling the ship in excess of 25 knots .

The uber powerful EL/M-2248 MF-STAR AESA (active electronically scanned array) radar with a range 250 km+ and can track hundreds of targets simultaneously . The Thales LW08 with an explicitly fast refresh rate and tracking does it’s job of tracking three high flying Bogeys armed with C-802 anti-ship missiles without breaking a sweat. With the fighters fast approaching the ship the various online radars,computer and systems starts processing vital information to the CIC(Combat information Center) . As, soon as the triad entered within the range of the Barak-8 missiles the Thales LW08 radars soon get into the action pinpointing the exact location of the aircraft. In the dark sky placed like a blanket on top of the ocean. Suddenly the ship roared launching a volley of three Barak-8 missiles one for each target , as they dashed across the sky powered by two stage, pulsed rocket motor in the process momentarily lighting up the sky and leaving a smoke trail. As the missiles enters into their terminal phase they flying at a piercing speed Mach 2 . The active radar seeker, on the missile locks onto the target along with guidance from the AESA radar despite heavy jamming from the Bogeys. The Barak-8 hits the fuselage of one of the bogey and the whole sky lights up like the fourth of July.

Meanwhile one of the other Bogey launches the it’s load the C-802 ( NATO reporting name CSS-N-8 Saccade) missile, with a high kill probability . As the missile darts through the open water. As soon as the missile reaches within the strike distance creating a “pop-up” effect near the target giving less time for it’s defense the missile switches it’s terminal guidance radar as soon as it enters into terminal phase missile’s terminal guidance radar with monopulse system possesses high anti-jamming capabilities. The high precision radio altimeter allows the missile to have a minimum-altitude flight above the sea, normally 20–30 m.The missile uses a 165 kg semi-armor-piercing anti-personnel blast warhead which relies on the missile’s kinetic energy for piercing the target. The MF-STAR AESA radar automation track kicks and into action on the ship giving a few seconds to the CIC (Combat information center) officer to react. With a volley of BARAK-8s ripping across the sky hurling towards the C-802 missile. With the guidance of the MF-STAR Radar the SAMs impales through the missile making the burning mass of a torn metal tube fall from the sky into the water . With the loss of one aircraft and another one running on a single engine the half dead bogeys decide to make way for home as they realized it probably late that they were seriously under-armed and vulnerable to the raw power of the radars and the perfect fusion of the sensors and SAMs on the Kolkata class Destroyer.

Introduction

The Kolkata class destroyers are one of the most formidable class of warships the Indian navy has to carry out a variety of tasks.They displace almost 7500 tons when fully loaded. The Kolkata class packs a punch when it comes to the radar and sensors of the ship. These ships are a successor to the Delhi class ships. The destroyers are packed to the brim with modern sensors with a very well balanced combination of anti-submarine,surface and aerial warfare. These ships are being constructed by Mazagaon Docks Limited with each ship costing around $600 million. There are 3 ships under various stages of induction. Two have been inducted and another one is soon going to head for sea trials.

Radar and sensors

The main primary radar of the ship is EL/M-2248 MF-STAR multi-mission AESA radar along with Thales LW-08 long range volume search radar and EL/M-2238 S-band STAR surveillance radar from Israel Aerospace Industries. A Nagin active towed array sonar and a bow-mounted sonar HUMSA-NG (hull-mounted sonar array – new generation) are carried for sub-surface surveillance.For Anti-submarine warfare it has an indigenous sonar system called the HUMSA-NG. HUMSA-NG is an advanced Active cum Passive integrated sonar system capable of simultaneous operation in active and passive modes. It is capable of detecting, localizing, classifying and tracking sub-surface targets in both active and passive modes.
The system provides simultaneous long-range detection in active and passive modes. The sonar is capable of localization and automatic tracking of up to eight targets in both active and passive modes.

The sonar integrates the operation of the UWT and XBT systems. The UWT functions are controlled from the main sonar console. The data received from the XBT is processed and presented on the workstation and also displayed on the sonar console.

The sonar provides target classification facility with advanced classification features in passive mode of operation.
The system is integrated with FCS systems such as IAC MOD ‘C and CAIO for exchange of relevant information. The sonar provides interface to the torpedo defence system to provide raw data for TD processing. Interfaces are also provided to obtain other ship house holding data such as course, speed, roll, pitch and GPS data.
To protect against anti-ship missiles coming from multiple directions, the ship carries the Elbit Systems Deseaver MK-II decoy control and launching system striking a perfect balance between ASW/ Surface and Aerial warfare. With the MF-STAR being an AESA radar operating on S-band Frequency the Radar consists of quad panels flanking each side of the main mast in slightly angular position.
Weapons system

Now for the defense and attacking targets the ship has a plethora of Israeli and Russian weapons. For the aerial defense the ship packs the Barak – 8 SAM which has a range of 90+ Km and is actually quite nimble. It’s minimum range is 0.8 km giving it the ability for point blank defense as it would give the ship a fighting chance to take down anti-ship missiles of Russian,French and Chinese origin commonly found in the region. And , in the Land attack category the Kolkata class it is one of the most formidable warships the Indian Navy has ever operated. For Land attack and anti-ship role the Kolkata class destroyers are packed with Brahmos cruise missile the fastest and most lethal anti-ship cruise missile. It is the primary offensive armament of the destroyer. The missiles can reach at a very high speed Mach 3.2 making it the fastest cruise missile in the world. It packs enough Kinetic energy to do significant damage to the target. According to reports an Aircraft carrier killer version is currently under development. by using it’s ability to do a steep dive it can do significant damage to a large target and disintegrate small ships. For naval gun fire support role during land operations the Kolkata class destroyers has been armed with a OTO melera 76 mm. The main gun is a dual purpose gun which means it is well-suited to varied roles such as short-range anti-missile point defence, anti-aircraft, anti-surface, and ground support. It has a range of 15 Km for land and water based target and 8 Km for aerial. It can fire 120 Rounds per minute giving it the capability to produce a shock and awe effect when fired rapidly on a single target. For Anti-submarine warfare it uses two Russian RBU-6000 Anti-submarine rocket system which can be fitted with mines,explosives, decoys with a range 6 Km. There are two launchers with a total of 24 rockets. The rockets are re-loaded automatically. The RBU-6000 Anti-submarine rocket system is complemented by twin torpedo launchers with a range of 40 Km and can fire heavy weight torpedos. The ships also pack quad Ak-630 CIWS capable of spewing 10,000 rounds a minute creating a wall of lead between the ship and any incoming bogey. It can be used for point blank defense.

Advanced Combat Management system

Each of the ship contains an advanced combat management system which uses all the sensors and radars and some specific equipment to give constant real time threat updates along with the analysis and the type of threat comes into one single place reducing the decision making time significantly.The warship is equipped with a hi-tech operation theatre.It has a strong tactical data link. It can have voice, data and video transfer through intranet, use of satellite. The operation theatre too is so well-equipped that a surgery can be conducted onboard with the help of telemedicine and video conferencing.

The Ship is equipped with sophisticated digital networks, such as Asynchronous Transfer Mode based Integrated Ship Data Network (AISDN), Combat Management System (CMS), Automatic Power Management System (APMS) and Auxiliary Control System (ACS). The AISDN is the information highway on which data from all the sensors and weapon ride. The CMS is used to integrate information from other platforms using indigenous data-link system, to provide Maritime Domain Awareness. The intricate power supply management is done using APMS, and remote control and monitoring of machinery is achieved through the ACS (Click for source)

Aviation capabilities

The Kolkata class destroyers are fitted with dual enclosed hangars which can accommodate a mix of Sea King, Chetak or Dhruv helicopters or even the S-70B Seahawk helicopters chosen by the Indian navy.

As the construction principal which has been followed in this ship is the use of raised platform. This Soviet unique tradition calls for the placement of weapons on the hull with a raised platform. This type of design has been seen on a number of soviet designed ships such as the Udaloy and Kashin class destroyers . This leads to the occupation of large amounts of space under the deck by the weapons system which reduces the space available on the ship. A lot of emphasis has been laid in the recent years on the comfort of the crew whilst constructing ships.

CONCLUSION

One thing which has been bugging a lot of people is why are the Kolkata class destroyers pack a lower number of missiles when compared to other ships of the same class ?

The answer is simple it is because if we compare American destroyers like Arleigh-Burke class destroyers they have 4 different types of SAM system each with a different role. and they main role of the American destroyers is to protect the aircraft carrier in a carrier battle group. Now when it comes to Russian destroyers they are packed to the brim. They can operate independently and a single ship can carry out a variety of roles. The Russian destroyers carry a large number of cruise missiles as they rely on overwhelming their enemies with supersonic flying tubes. So, are 16 Brahmos missile sufficient ? Yes they are because in a war time scenario ships won’t be travelling alone. Each ship in the fleet would have different roles but when it comes to the defense of the fleet it would be one common goal. Now the follow on class of the Kolkata class destroyers are the Vishakapatnam class destroyers which are heavier and pack more punch than the Kolkata class destroyers. The Kolkata Class destroyers marks a new beginning the construction of naval ships in India. With two ships already commissioned and the third one on it’s way. It gives the navy a serious teeth to counter a large number of threats in the Indian Ocean Region.

India's L&T, Samsung Team Up For $700 Million Howitzer Deal
Vivek Raghuvanshi, Defense News 11:15 a.m. EDT July 25, 2016


NEW DELHI - In the biggest-ever order for India's private sector, Larsen & Toubro (L&T) has won a $700 million contract to produce 100 tracked 155mm howitzer guns at Indian facilities, jointly with Samsung of South Korea, for use by the Indian army.

The contract is likely to be inked with L&T in the next two months as all formalities are completed, said an official at the ministry of defense here.

The L&T-Samsung team, offering the K-9 Vajra-T gun, beat an offering for the 2S19 MSTA weapon from Rosoboronexport of Russia.

"More than 50 percent of the work share is with L&T," a senior L&T executive said. Samsung will supply the turret of the gun. The weapons will be produced at L&T’s newly set up manufacturing facilities near Pune in central India.

Besides the 100 guns to be produced, the company hopes to close additional deals to boost what analysts say is a slim profit margin on a relatively small number of howitzers. “In case the gun is found attractive and the users [Indian Army] are happy with the performance of the supplied product, it is possible that the self-propelled wheeled program, which is also under planning stage, could get merged and this could increase the total numbers," one company executive said.

A senior Indian army official, however, said the 100 weapons are what’s operationally required by the ground service, suggesting the number is unlikely to increase.

No executive from Samsung was available for comment.

Samsung may be hoping for a large market with at least 250 to 300 guns, says Rahul Bhonsle, retired army brigadier and defense analyst. Though the market size is about 250-300 for tracked guns in the long run, Bhonsle said “huge budgetary constraints” may leave the number at 100 in the near term.

Indian Navy will acquire 12 Japanese Shinmaywa’s long-range amphibious aircraft US-2i
Jul 25, 2016



Indian Navy will acquire 12 Japanese Shinmaywa’s long-range amphibious aircraft US-2i for an approximate $1.65 billion under the government-to-government deal.

The US-2i aircraft will be procured under the ‘buy global’ clause of the Defence Procurement Procedure, government sources were quoted as saying by Financial Express Saturday.

The deal, which is going to be government-to-government, was changed from ‘buy and make global’ to ‘buy global’ after amendments were made to two chapters of the DPP, and subsequent rounds of discussions with the industry association.

The deal found mention in the recent interaction between the two nations’ defense ministers in New Delhi earlier this month. The Defense Minister of Japan Gen Nakatani was paying a bilateral visit to India at the invitation of Indian Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar.


A senior officer was quoted by FE as saying that, “The plan to Buy Global will be sent to the Defence Acquisition Committee in a couple of months before any formal decision is made. Also, there will be a 30% offset clause that the Japanese side will be signing. ”

A source in the Japanese company told defenseworld.net last week that, “The case is still to go to Services Capital Acquisition Requirement Categorization Board (SCAP) and later to Cabinet Committee for Security and is likely that the SCAP will be appointed in August.”

The deal, which has an approval of the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion, is waiting for an acceptance of necessity (AON) from the Indian Navy.


Thailand Interested in US-2 Amphibious Aircraft too. The Prime Minister and Defense Minister of Thailand in exclusive interview with Kyodo News in Bangkok said, “Thai Air Force has expressed interest in Japan aircraft.”

The ShinMaywa US-2 is an amphibious short take-off and landing (STOL) aircraft manufactured by Japan-based ShinMaywa Industries. Designed for air-sea rescue missions, the US-2 is operated by the 31st Fleet Air Wing of the Japan Maritime Self-Defence Force (JMSDF).

The ShinMaywa US-2 fleet is deployed across the remote islands of Japan’s Exclusive Economic Zones to provide surveillance and emergency medical transportation services. The aircraft can quickly reach remote islands and sites of maritime accidents during search and rescue (SAR) operations.

Corruption – Free Defence Deals
(Source: Indian Ministry of Defence; issued July 26, 2016)
Capital Procurement of defence equipment from Indian and foreign vendors is progressed as per provisions of the Defence Procurement Procedure (DPP). The new DPP which has come into effect from 01.4.2016 incorporates provisions to ensure the highest degree of probity, public accountability, transparency, fair completion and level playing field.

The DPP 2016 envisages signing of an integrity Pact between Government and the bidders for all capital procurement/ schemes of Rs. 20 crore and above. Earlier such pacts were required only for cases involving Rs. 100 crores and above.

DPP 2016 provides that a foreign vendor is required to disclose full details of any such person, party, firm or institution engaged by them for marketing of their equipment in India, either on a country specific basis or as a part of a global or regional arrangement. It also stipulates conditions for appointment of agents.

It further provides that the Seller has to confirm and declare to the Buyer that it is the original manufacturer of the stores contracted and that no agent has been engaged to influence or manipulate award of the contract, or indulge in corrupt and unethical practices.

No case involving corruption in defence procurements undertaken during the last two years has come to light.

India Orders Four More Maritime Spy Jets

On the first day of his India visit, U.S. Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition Frank Kendall signed a deal with India for delivery of four more Boeing P-81 long range maritime spy planes.



New Delhi (Sputnik) – India has decided to procure an additional four P-8I long range maritime spy planes from US manufacturer Boeing Co. According to sources in India's Defense Ministry, an agreement for the deal worth about 1 billion dollars has been signed. The aircraft will be inducted into the Indian Navy in the next three years.
Eight Boeing P-81 spy planes are already deployed in the India Ocean, tracking movements of submarines. Some aircraft have been deployed in the remote Andaman and Nicobar islands near the Malacca Straits and two other routes into the Indian Ocean for military purpose as well as commercial shipping. Boeing last year completed the delivery the last of the aircraft under the previous order worth $2.1 billion.

The latest deal is a follow-on purchase was signed during the visit of US Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition Frank Kendall.
The deal is seen as a manifestation of India's attempt to further bolster its naval capability as they are under immense pressure to check the Chinese presence in the Indian Ocean, following China's deployment of a nuclear-powered boat that is reportedly currently docked in Sri Lanka.

Premier vol d’un Mirage 2000 indien modernisé en configuration FOC !





Le premier Mirage 2000H modernisé en Inde par la société Hindustan Aeronautics (HAL) a réalisé son premier vol. Cet avion fait partie des trois premiers Mirage 2000H indiens qui ont été modernisés en France et remis à l'IAF en 2014 déjà, la modernisation en Inde avec la mise à niveau opérationnelle se faisait encore attendre.

En effet, les installations de HAL à Bangalore étaient toujours en attente de leur certification depuis 2012. Plusieurs ingénieurs de HAL ont dû venir se former en France, afin d’atteindre un niveau suffisant pour travailler à l’amélioration des Mirage 2000. De fait, le programme a accumulé de nombreux retards.

Ce premier vol marque enfin la phase finale de la modernisation des Mirage 2000 indiens localement. Le vol à impliqué le premier avion ayant une configuration opérationnelle finale (FOC) telle que définie par le programme initial de mise à jour pour la flotte de Mirage 2000 la force aérienne indienne.

Ce premier vol d’une durée de 45 minutes, avec un Mirage 2000 biplace n° KT201 a été une réussite selon HAL. A noter que cet appareil avait reçu une modernisation initiale chez Dassault Aviation avant de passer entre les mains de HAL.

La configuration opérationnelle FOC opérée par HAL couvre des spécificités en matière d’arme et de guerre électronique et des logiciels liés à l’ordinateur de mission.

Avec cette finalisation, HAL a débuté la modernisation progressive des 52 autres Mirage 2000 et ceci de manière complète est autonome. Il faudra cependant près de sept années à l’industrie indienne pour finaliser complétement le remise des appareils.

Rappel :

New Delhi a signé un contrat d’une valeur de 2,4 milliards de dollars pour la mise à niveau de sa flotte de Mirage 2000 en juillet 2011.

Modernisation des Mirage 2000H :

L’objectif technique de cette modernisation comprend une mise à niveau des Mirage 2000 au standard -5 /II avec l’adjonction de la nouvelle version du radar RDY-3, un cockpit numérique compatible avec de jumelle de vision nocturne. L’avion recevra une liaison électronique indienne couplée à un système de données tactiques JTIDS. L’Inde a également négocié l’acquisition d’un viseur de casque. Question armement, la France fournira la dernière génération de missile MICA, doté d’autodirecteurs à infrarouge et à guidage radar. L’appareil pourra également emporter divers types de bombes, lui permettant une allonge en matière d’attaque au sol.

Les Mirage 2000H acquis au milieu des années 80 commençaient sérieusement à être dépassés technologiquement. Ce programme doit permettre à l’avion français de Dassault de retrouver des capacités, lui permettant de pouvoir maintenir ses engagements durant encore 20 ans.
