India will hold a tender for the purchase of helicopters for the Navy

18
The Indian Navy is in dire need of new helicopters. According to the newspaper Hindustan Times, Indian Defense Ministry prepares to hold two tenders for the purchase of a large batch of helicopters for the military fleet.

The Indian Defense Ministry sent two requests for information (RFI) to the largest military helicopter manufacturers with a response time before October 6. After that, based on the data, the Ministry of Defense will leave the requirements for tenders, reports "Warspot"

India will hold a tender for the purchase of helicopters for the Navy

Helicopter Sea King Indian Navy


In total, the Indian Navy plans to purchase 234 units of equipment: 111 naval helicopters (naval utility helicopters, NUH) and 123 naval multipurpose helicopters (naval multi-role helicopters, NMRH). Details of the upcoming transaction will be known only after the tender, but now the defense ministry calls the purchase “multi-billion”.

The new naval helicopters will replace the outdated HAL Chetak (a licensed copy of the French Aérospatiale Alouette III). Naval multipurpose helicopters should replace the Sea King fleet, purchased from the UK back in 80-s. The purchase, if it takes place (previously, India has already canceled two tenders for the purchase of helicopters for the Navy), will be held under the program "Made in India" (Make in India). Today, more than half of the 140 warships do not have a helicopter assigned to them.

      What's the matter, Aron? In ten years, develop a cheap copter that will suit the Indians. Well, already drive your air defense snag to India laughing

        Why bother heading into a wall? We prefer to develop what we have already succeeded in. For example, in air defense systems. wink

          Yes, your air defense system. At the level of Three USSR Air Defense Brigades of the late 80s. Armament too. Modified management. Almost at all heights, everything goes astray. It is only necessary to supply the entire system, separately it is shnyaga. Until the Division complexes you will be far away - deshovka

            This is for the Indians. What they want is what they buy.

              Oh damn it. As a wrestler I’ll tell you, you’ll defy for a hundredth of a millisecond, that means you are a corpse. The lungs on the tatami beat off very informatively. You left with outdated technology, but you know how to use it effectively. This is a fact, but did not advance in the air defense

    Despite the failure in two tenders for attack helicopters, Russia is ready to enter a large helicopter tender with Ka-226T or Ka-226TM light vehicles and heavy models based on Ka-31, Ka-38, Ka-27 and Ka-32.
    Hope dies last!

      Details of the upcoming transaction will be known only after the tender, but already now the military department calls the purchase "multi-billion."


      If you take from the amers, it will definitely be multi-billion dollar, the Indians obviously sometimes do not want to spend money prudently ..

      very picky Indians. we buy, we don’t buy, then transfer technologies to us, or it’s too expensive ... they run from one seller to another in the hope of better conditions (which is logical and understandable, but does not add value as a reliable partner)

        Do not discount the corruption component. Especially with regard to procurement for the military - this is another story.

      And the choice is not particularly great, either Sea Haw, or European Wildcat or NH-90.

    "Made in India" is the sentence of any military equipment.
