India refuses "Spikes"

69
The joint Indian-Israeli production of anti-tank missile systems was in doubt. According to the portal defenseworld.net, the Ministry of Defense of India canceled the purchase of Spike ATGMs, the cost of which was estimated at $ 525 million.


The Indian Defense Ministry indicates that the purchase of foreign-made ATGM will have a negative impact on domestic development. At the same time, the Indian Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) has already presented its development of the Man-Portable Anti-tank Guided Missile (MPATGM), already the last part of the tests.

India refuses "Spikes"

MPATGM Indian Development Tests


The Ministry of Defense of India believes that DRDO will be able to start mass production of third-generation anti-tank systems, which the developers include MPATGM. According to the military, equipping the Indian army with new anti-tank complexes will take three to four years.

In 2014, the Indian Ministry of Defense refused to buy American anti-tank Javelin missile systems in favor of Spike missiles. Then it was decided to purchase 8000 Israeli missiles and more 300 launchers for them.

Spike is a family of Israeli missiles developed in 90's by Rafael Advanced Defense Systems. Spike is a multipurpose multiplatform electro-optical rocket system designed to destroy armored vehicles, protected objects and engineering structures, as well as surface targets and enemy manpower. Rocket launch can be carried out in three main modes: “Shot and forget” (Fire and Forget), “Shot, noticed and corrected” (Fire, Observe and Update) and “Shot and sent” (Fire and Steer). Spike missiles can be equipped with cumulative, fragmentation and combined warheads, reports "Warspot"

    Indian Defense Ministry Cancels Spike ATGM Transaction

    In 2014, the Indian Ministry of Defense refused to acquire American Javelin anti-tank missile systems in favor of Spike missiles

    It turns out that the Indians are not only able to wag stern with Russia.

            Here butted Israel and the United States. Moreover, the "main candy" was the transfer of technology.
            Maybe they have already received it, and therefore decided to refuse the order?
            As an option, the Americans got in again, proposing joint development, so they will have at least some money

        The Prime Minister of India succeeded the Minister of Defense.
        Under pressure from the parliament, which “ran over” him for the purchase of Rafaley
        (to the detriment of the national aircraft manufacturer).
        The new chief of the Moscow Region, as they say, hit his fist on the table:
        "Who is the boss here?" wassat And - he did business. Rafali failed to cancel (them
        personally lobbied the prime minister).

          Materials subsequent vigorous discussion of the incident “Suggest that the interests of the manufacturer Spike were actively lobbied by corrupt Peruvian officials and businessmen, whose ultimate goal is 650 million dollars allocated for the implementation of a large-scale modernization program for Peruvian armed forces”. The result of the scandal was a visit to Lima by the head of Rafael in early May 2010, in order to personally explain to the customer about the causes of the incident, which he called an “unexpected accident”.

          Everything is much more complicated there. A lot of money is allocated for rearmament, and the local oligarchy is very unhappy that such a couscous flies past their mouths. Actually, that's why this mess is happening. Remember the epic battle in Russia around Iveco / Lynx, and multiply by a thousand
          In addition, this sphere in India is extremely corrupt, and PR is actively used in the media, including the black one. And even the fight against corruption is often waged in the interests of certain commercial groups.

    "Rafael was not officially informed of any changes in the decision to purchase Spike missiles. Spike is used by 26 different military units around the world and was chosen by India as a result of lengthy and thorough negotiations," the deputy deputy spokesman told Haaretz Israeli concern Ishai David November 20.

    According to him, Rafael has already begun transmitting information on the development of the Make-in-India program to the Indians, assuring that it "will continue as planned."

    In connection with this Indian topic, I want to quote the last paragraph of a recent analytical article from NVO, which interested me. Indeed, India needs a strong ally against China and America is actively trying to gain a foothold in India not only through arms deals (which it offers whole packages of offers), but also trying to establish military interaction and basing. It seems to be irrelevant to the topic of "Spikes", but how to say ...
    The Indian newspaper Hindu published material on the announcement by the command of the Armed Forces of this country of a tender for the purchase of 2600 tanks. Earlier, the senior officer of the Indian Ministry of Defense, Lieutenant General Shivan, made a statement to the media that soon the Future Ready Combat Vehicle (FRCV) program, which is the basis for the construction of Indian armored forces, will make significant progress. From his own lips it became known that in the near future a large part of the existing tank fleet will be decommissioned ...................... Given all the above, the T-90 practically in all respects it looks more attractive than Abrams. But insurmountable for Moscow political expediency in relations between India and the USA may intervene. As you know, recently, Washington has been working hard to strengthen comprehensive ties with Delhi, primarily in the field of military cooperation. In early June, Pentagon chief James Mattis, speaking in Singapore, even stated that India is a key US partner in the defense industry.
    The United States has already signed an agreement with Delhi to localize the production of the F-16 multipurpose fighter in India and to supply 22 Guard MQ-9B marine drones. Earlier, India purchased the Jalashwa helicopter carrier (the former Trenton LPD-14) and the S-17 transport aircraft, and also preferred to conclude contracts with France for the construction of Scorpen submarines and 36 Rafal fighters. http://www.ng.ru/armies/2017-11-17/1_7117_abrams.

But we do not need to cooperate with them in the future, our know-how will immediately find themselves behind the hill. Do you want to take it, but without the transfer of our technology. Now hell who will share even with his closest neighbor. Our neighbors are there: Ukraine sold us, Belarus sucks us like a calf, and looks to the West, Kazakhstan is still with us, but as the current president leaves, Kazakhstan will no longer be close to us if they already prefer their roots and transition to Latin, friendly with the USA

    Apparently, this is another duck.
    Negotiations were conducted with 2014 of the year. The transaction is completed in May 2016. India has ordered Spike 8000 anti-tank guided missiles and more 300 launchers. Production will be conducted in Hyderabad, a joint venture between Rafael and the Kalyani group. Prior to opening production in India (end of 2018), Rafael already supplies kits for the order. Given that the Indian army is currently facing a shortage of about 68 000 of similar missiles, the deal does not in any way prevent India from developing its missiles. Such development will take, roughly, four years.

            I read the official press release from August of this year .:
            It was an Israeli partner, Kalyani Strategic Systems.
            Indian government ministries, Israel’s ambassador Yoav Har-Even, Rafael’s CEO, “It’s committed to the development of the plant.”

            Which means approximately the following:
            On Thursday, Israeli weapons maker Rafael Advanced Defense Systems announced the launch of a rocket production plant in India with its Indian partner Kalyani Strategic Systems.
            The plant was opened in the city of Hyderabad at a ceremony in which the ministers of the government of India, the ambassador of Israel to India, and the heads of Rafael and Kalyani took part. Yoav Har-Even, CEO of Rafael, said that the opening of the plant is another expression of security cooperation between Israel and India and that his company "is committed to the policies of the Indian government and local production, and the opening of the plant is proof of this."

            According to recent reports, it became known that the plant will reach its design capacity by the end of 2018.

              I checked in other sources, it seems like the truth, the plant was opened and 90% of the parts are produced in India on Aug. 04.2017. This begs the question: Indians want to throw Israel, there is a factory, parts are produced for 90%, why do we need a blacksmith ?! what In general, or PR dirty, or not blogary clients ... hi

    Another bargaining began. Again, the Javelins want, but cheaper.

    Israel is now a strong anti-corruption company. It is very possible that the Indians were promised to be warmed up, but it does not work out. Then they burned with righteous anger. Really outrageous. No loan, no rollback. This is not a concept.

    Such a great gouging regarding technology as the Indians do not exist anywhere. Have time to test or break ahead of time?

    They refused to Dry in favor of Raphael! This is already a misunderstanding, because they are much more expensive and not at all more efficient. Yes, and our T-90 tanks also did not like. Also strange. What happens there, whether it drank the budget, or an attempt to take the right side ... Unclear.
