Nibbling over the Indian market. Indian Air Force announces bid for 110 fighter jets

139
India announced the opening of a competition for the supply of more than a hundred fighters. The total number of military aircraft that are planned for the Air Force to purchase the Ministry of Defense of this country, should be 110. The transaction value is estimated at 15 billion dollars.


The main requirement from the authorities of India: production must be placed on Indian territory to create new jobs in the country. India also insists that potential partners pass on the appropriate technologies to Indian specialists when building aircraft. This requirement fits into the concept of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on creating his own powerful military-industrial base.

Earlier, the Indian Air Force reported that up to 85% of all aircraft parts and assemblies must be manufactured in factories in India.

American companies are ready to fight for the right to sell their aircraft to the Indian side Boeing, Lockheed Martinas well as swedish Saab and the French Dassault Aviation.

Nibbling over the Indian market. Indian Air Force announces bid for 110 fighter jets


As is known, Lockheed Martin offered to move to India the production line of F-16 fighter jets, which today is in the state of Texas. At the same time, Lockheed Martin announces cooperation with the Indian Tata AS. At the same time, the French are talking about readiness for a full cycle of joint production with the Indian consortium. Adani group.

India itself is talking about interest in acquiring Russian fighters with the transfer of appropriate technology. However, the US sanctions imposed on Russian military-industrial enterprises add barriers here. So for that, sanctions were introduced to try to force Russia out of the same gigantic Indian market. Are our manufacturers ready for this?

      Hello Vitaly! hi
      The main requirement from the authorities of India: production must be located in Indian territory to create new jobs in the country. India also insists that potential partners transfer the appropriate technologies to the Indian specialists in the construction of aircraft.

      Yeah, they will start to do it themselves and their letaki will begin to pour in packs, and as always partners will be blamed. Swam - we know. The clarity of the Indians is well known.

          Yes, they do not care about jobs. For them, the main thing is technology transfer, everything else is tinsel.

            Although the Hinduism is “well-known”, and in terms of quality the majority of their “masters” and the engine cannot be trusted, not just airplanes, but the direction is right.
            From the backside where they are now, you have to get out, and there is only one right way - at the beginning to purchase technology, hire specialists from abroad, then educate your specialists. It is this way that they go (they are trying to save on hiring, which is in vain)

There justice triumphed, and evil was punished; 3.And there were "fights" angry ! And I was young! fellow And then ..... well, then .... began .... to grow up, I stopped watching Indian films recourse But the names: "Zita and Gita", "Ram and Shiam" - I still remember! You can laugh at Indian films, consider them to be "operettas-nedofilmami", but there was a period in the history of our country when Indian cinema became a part of the life of our people.!

        It’s not enough until the pieces of paper are clamped, the price doesn’t suit us, they are bargaining again ... They planned to sign the final contract in Moscow at a security conference, but they did not agree on the price. The Americans are also pushing hard .. we'll see. If all the same they sign India will be the third. A regiment set has already been delivered to China without auxiliary equipment, and with Erdogan agreed to move the deadlines down by 2019 ...

          Stanislav, I welcome you!
          So it is in the style of communication of the Indians. I remember how we first sold 11356 to them ... Everything repeats ...
          Discussion of the contract, which was previously agreed upon 1,5 years ago by President Vladimir Putin and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, stumbled over a financial issue. Moscow is asking for $ 5,5 billion for the five complexes, while Delhi is ready to pay no more than $ 4,5 billion. In addition, the Indian side believes that Russia has set too high a price for the training of those who have to service these weapons. Further: https://news.rambler.ru/weapon

          The Americans also press hard ..
          It is clear that they are under pressure ... But they still cannot offer anything in exchange for Triumph. Their Patriots no longer roll: once again 2 MRBMs spanked in the SA. And the proposed increase in the supply of F-16 / F-18 will not solve the missile defense problem. American counterparts of air defense / missile defense systems are much worse than Russian ones, and are more expensive. And India is well aware of this. Most likely, Delhi is simply killing two birds with one stone: on the one hand, it makes a friendly curtsey towards the United States, on the other hand, it tries to blackmail Russia in order to obtain concessions, including obtaining technology.
          But there is third party issue: geopolitical confrontation in the region of India and China.
          the question is what is more important for Delhi today - containment of China or friendship with Washington.
          “If containment of China is a priority, they will buy Russian systems. If India thinks more about cooperation with the United States, of course, it should abandon this deal. https://news.rambler.ru/weapon

      The fact of the matter is that the new tender was announced because of the high cost of the previous one, but here MiG has no competitors, India will not buy Chinese equipment. What is now on the MiG 29/35 is quite effective, but you can’t name a breakthrough, including engine, radar, radar. 85% is bold, but 70 percent can be transmitted. The main thing is that under the contract at least five cars should be delivered ready from Russia annually, this will allow not to lose qualified personnel.

      Well, hardly any technology will be handed over to all Indians. especially the USA and Europa. Only we can and then only partially. I think this is a great opportunity to raise our KB MIG with its 35 Mig. It will be possible to bargain and reset from 85% to say 75 or 70%, and in the remaining percent you can just fit the radar and Avionika engines. It depends on how you count hi
      Although of course the requirements are unprecedented, I’m afraid I will end up with some kind of Indian miracle in the body of a recognizable aircraft. request

    This competition is meaningless for the Russian Federation. The Indians insist on the almost complete transfer of technology and the old fighters are not going to buy. The same Americans are also trying to get in the f-16, which is already many years old.
    At the same time, given the previous adventures of the Indians, they are not ready to fully pay for the cost of the technologies that are needed to build a modern fighter. Under these conditions, it is only possible to transfer a machine profitably, which we have produced in hundreds, but there are simply none. Previously, that was Mig-21, Mig-23. I'm not talking about privacy issues and leaks.
    In general, the conditions are simply disadvantageous. And no matter what market there is. You need to sell profitably, let other motives go through the forest.

        in fact, MIG is able to compete for this market if it acts actively, as after the previous failure of the tender in India. But there hasn’t been much good news lately from there.
        However, I would like to point out what Glazyev says - because of the great difficulty with borrowed capital in our country, all dynamic projects are covered with a copper basin and most of them are still too expensive to spin up something quickly at the start.
        Americans with their loan rates have no such problem at all.

            To that. that for example, payment will be made upon delivery of the fighter to the troops.
            And taking into account production in India - the period between the start of payment for metals / components for an aircraft unit and other costs and payment by the final customer - can be calculated over the years.

                Again.
                the contract does not imply a simple sale. According to which you can use any settlement schemes.

                The contract implies the creation of a joint consortium, the organization of production in India, the selection and training of personnel by the Indian side, and many tens and hundreds of other points of production logistics and financing.
                And no separation of flies, etc. - will not be.

            tender not for the supply of fighters, but for the deployment of their production in India
            This is an investment in infrastructure deployment in India. That's why borrowed capital.
            In addition, each fuss with large-scale tenders - these are costs and reserves for the flexibility of proposals are highly desirable. Finally, ensuring timely technical re-equipment is also money and not small.

          For some reason, I think that 2 x engine. they don’t need such a quantity ... This time. And two is the only thing that Lockheed can accommodate in India, they don’t shine with 35 ... Three, the practice of using Su 30-35 is small, which makes it impossible to talk about real accidents, and no one needs the unknown, and again the extra money for engines ...

            There will be no excess engine. This is how to compare the M-16 and AK-47 in terms of reliability - I think you understand what I'm writing about. hi

              Two engines - this is to increase traction if one is missing.
              Reliability - no relation. The designers of the MiG-29 once honestly said that
              if they had one engine of sufficient power, the MiG-29 would be single-engine (which is logical for a light fighter).

                I agree with the designers, but even the outstanding F-35 engine (modern engine F-22) does not provide the required maximum speed. On two versions of the F-35, in order to fight for weight, there is no built-in gun (only in cont. Execution).
                Even in the history of Israel, there are cases when a plane returned with one blasted engine, you can give examples of the Su-25 in Afghanistan from the history of the Union. So, 2 engines are directly related to reliability. This was confirmed, for example, by the VAF on the site. As he wrote approximately. "... On a single-engine emergency with an engine, there is only one action - come on out - the loss of an airplane ...". Then many noted that with one always a poor traction (MiG-21,23,27; F-16, F-35). And then you have to choose either range or ammunition. And this means for large countries that you need to have a large fleet of such aircraft. Like those MiG-21s during Soviet times. And the task of the Russian Federation, according to GDP, is only 700 fighters in the VKS system.
                And of course I agree that the two engines give more traction. Agree that this is an advantage than a disadvantage. It is clear that more expensive. hi

In this case, there is a kind of lobbying in India, as a rule firms win the interests of which are pushed by a certain group in power structures and laws do not apply here and rules.

          If the Indians wanted to buy the F-16, he would have bought it without a tender and very quickly. The Americans have already begun to seriously indulge the Indians.

          The chances of the F-16 are not because of a single engine, but because the turkeys will receive the entire machine production line from the s, which Russia will never do.
          In this entire story, the most interesting questions are: 1) whether India will require a license to manufacture an engine with full localization; 2) whether India will require a license to board, including the aerobatic complex, and avionics, and 3) whether India will require a license for weapons, including missiles.

    In my opinion, if you go to the demand of India and hand over those documentation, it will be the height of idiocy. Having received all the documentation, the Indians can break the contract. It is not for nothing that they are stirring up excitement so that Russia would be tempted, but at the same time they are in every possible way lowering the price of military products, blaming our planes as imperfect. I think for a while Russia should quieten down, even if it is bought from the Americans, at a price.

      The Hindus are interested in a light fighter, and the heavy Su-30mki is already in the metal and a lot. Another point that is against the purchase of a Russian fighter is two engines. It is very difficult to compete against the F-16 here with the incompleteness of the Beetle MiG. It would seem that we take one engine from the Su-35s and make a half, in the form of a light fighter: for export, we have a couple of regiments for advertising and mobresource in case of a grandiose chucher. But these are years, money, airfields, etc.

    In our minds, type Indians, a half-race, breed like the Chinese, but they themselves can’t do anything but bargain and “throw”. But this is not the task. India, like a panther, has crept into the world stage. According to the IMF, for 2016: Population of India = 1 (346nd place after China = 250).
    India PPP GDP = 8701, 3rd place in the world (1 - China = 21286, 2 - USA = 18624).
    PPP - purchasing power parity.
    Further :
    4 - Japan = 5233,
    5 - Germany = 3997,
    6 - Russia = 3862,
    7 - Brazil = 3141,
    8 - Indonesia - 3031,
    9 - England = 2785,
    10 - France = 2735.
    So, today India is a huge market that can dictate its conditions in the modern world. The rest are forced to adjust in order not to leave this market. yes

    The Indian fighter market, we seem to be losing forever. Do I need to be upset? Hardly. Nobody will give Indians the type of Su-30 aircraft, and the “light” F-16 fighter is already the day before yesterday. Everything that the Indian defense industry does can be safely scrapped, the quality is horrendous, and the accident rate is almost the highest in the world. If we could not teach Indian specialists, it will not work with the Americans and Europeans. And Lockheed, and SAAB, and the French do not care, the main thing is to get real money for illiquid assets, which they will do brilliantly. We will only have to remember the past, and write India on the list of former friends of Russia, which the Indians, we will speak directly, have not been for us for a long time. We will build normal commercial relations, which is absolutely correct.

    The problem for India is that no one will transfer the production of engines from Western partners, so 85% will not be met. F16 and especially Gripen - a competitor to the Indian Tejas. It’s more realistic to bend the French, but again the problem is in the engines, although there are snecma engines there, but I still don’t understand whether they are delivered as standard.

However, the US sanctions imposed on Russian military-industrial enterprises add barriers here. So for that, sanctions were introduced to try to force Russia out of the same gigantic Indian market. Are our manufacturers ready for this?

    Here the question should be posed as follows: "Are the Indians ready for a" break "from the side of Western firms for the complete transfer of the most modern technologies?" It’s high time for them to understand that this will never be given to anyone and that the technologies themselves need to be “grown", and not begged for, and even for cheap!

This is a huge coastal zone, typical of Crimea, but there is something to protect for the whole THAT region, but the problem is that the only one to protect from is the United States - still Obama is a Negro, argued that the region will be for the USA - then came Trump - and this haemorrhoids began with the whole line - China, North Korea, the Sea of ​​China, where the Japanese already confuse the coast - and India of course.

    Half of the planes are without engines. Another part - for other reasons.
    Therefore, the F-16 has good chances. The engine is one and reliable enough.

    If the Indians wanted to buy the F-16, he would have bought it without a tender and very quickly. The Americans have already begun to seriously indulge the Indians. And India needs new technologies for stealth, polymers, electronics

    This whole tender is an empty phrase until they lower their Wishlist to an acceptable level.

And this is not so about Israel, they pay a great scientific tribute to the United States and have become their template, but it is clear that they are resisting and want not to be pressured. When the United States helps Israel, not for the development of its interests, but for the development of its “ally,” Israel will be different. Israel can change a lot for BV, but many also interfere with it (the United States is no exception), that's why the Jews and I still go as allies, we don’t need a hegemon in BV, we need independent decisions of the BV countries .... hi

    Koreans 50 years ago knew how to make only fishing schooners.
    And today, South Korea is number one in the global shipbuilding industry.

    The reason there was about the same as with the Chinese, only the Koreans did not invest in the shipbuilding of the Koreans, but the Greeks. They gave orders, technologies in exchange for cheap labor and total discounts. The success of Korean shipbuilding has the name "Lebanon billionaire." The Americans were much more careful, but today they are howling about the "theft of intellectual property."

    Broaden your horizons, read about one of the largest shipyards in the Mediterranean region Hellenic Shipyards, for example, or about another giant - Elefsis.
    And do not indulge in question marks, especially when your awareness is so obviously measured by negative values.
