Indian media: Russian “Shell-C1” did not pass mobility tests in desert conditions


The Indian press claims that the Russian “Shell-C1” did not pass mobility tests in desert conditions. And for this reason, South Korea “leads the way in the Indian market”. However, the Russian Ministry of Defense is protesting: after all, we are talking about a deal worth $ 2,5 billion.


The Indian Defense Procurement Council (DAC) is expected to review this month and decide on the acquisition of self-propelled air defense systems (SPAD-GMS). This was reported to The Economic Times in New Delhi by some anonymous authors who were "informed" in the relevant issue.

The Ministry of Defense of India should announce the purchase of new air defense systems for the army in the amount of $ 2,5 billion. The announcement is expected after a "decisive protest" in Russia. Reason: According to the newspaper, Russia “protested” India’s choice of a South Korean manufacturer and demanded a review of the decision, saying that it was “unfairly disqualified,” the newspaper said.

What is the point?

As the observer recalls, after a series of tests in various territories, including desert lands, “the only system that can qualify for a contract” was the K-30 Biho (Flying Tiger). This system was developed by the South Korean company Hanwha Defense.

As for Russia, according to the sources on which the publication relies, it offers “two separate systems,” namely, the modernized Tunguska-M1 and Pantsir missile systems. But both systems "failed the test."

A significant failure for Russia turned out to be “mobility tests: they [systems] failed to fulfill the requirements,” the article states.

Hanwha from South Korea entered the short list of applicants at the beginning of last year, the publication further recalls. However, negotiations have stalled, not reaching the next stage - bargaining. The reason for the suspension of price negotiations was mainly “a few objections and complaints from the Russian side, including an official complaint to the committee for internal monitoring of the ministry”.

Russia is looking for another chance, wanting to go through field trials and prove that its systems meet all technical requirements. Meanwhile, the Indian army is "satisfied" and, according to sources, advocates a transition to price negotiations.

The choice of the K-30 Biho unpleasantly hit the Russian side, which was

"The traditional provider of mobile ground systems for the Indian army."

India should make a final decision on this issue in the near future.

Discussion of the acquisition of mobile air defense systems began back in 2013. Since then, all competitors have passed a series of tests, stretching over two years. The choice of the K-30, the publication concludes, was the second major victory for Korean systems in India after the acquisition of the K-9 self-propelled artillery systems (in India this system is called the Vajra).

      By "mobility" it should be understood that the Indians are dissatisfied with the resource and reliability of propulsion systems of Russian technology. And this is really a problem. In addition, there are claims to the comfort of personnel in these missile systems.

          Maybe the engine is warming in the desert, maybe the air conditioning in the cockpit does not have a separate drive, maybe something doesn’t cope with air purification, etc. In addition, I read that the Korean system is a more stable platform when shooting from cannons. in the conditions of sandy soils, therefore ours pulled the Tunguska to the tests, but it has a problem with the optoelectronic guidance channel ....

      Therefore, there is already enough criticism. But our manufacturers do not see this point blank. Although the caterpillar (as in the photo) would be very not bad. And for the wheeled version - the MZKT has an excellent chassis. The Kamaz chassis is quite suitable only for those Shells that guard stationary objects. So that you can go to the gas station and there is no place to move when the site is sweeping away dust and snow.

        "And for the wheeled version, the MZKT has an excellent chassis."
        I strongly disagree with your offer! The sabers have been throwing a fortel lately! Maybe their bastards bit - I do not know! But we have a wonderful factory: the Bryansk Automobile Plant, which produces excellent chassis and has even passed tests with the Pantsir combat module, but the lobbyists of the Tatar cart sold a narrow, extremely loaded, with a high center of gravity (meaning roll) chassis KAMAZ ! Take BAZ and you will not be mistaken, and even Indians will have nothing to say!

            Grant - the chassis is massive and cheap. laughing Definitely for good military equipment there will be no very cheap components, and the BAZ satisfies the basic requirements for the Shell shell. Otherwise, they will fall like trees under the wind (remember the case in Vladivostok) and shooting from cannons on the move will be in the white light like a penny!

            But the main thing is the Bryansk Automobile Plant - Russian, on the territory of the Russian Federation, and Belarus is a "multi-vector" country - in Russian "Both ours and yours ..."! Other things being equal, why take the risk? Therefore, in my opinion, it is necessary to say thanks to KAMAZ for the initial support and focus on the installation of new modifications of the "Shell" on the chassis of the Bryansk Automobile Plant!

    Actually, if the Indians were initially biased towards our complexes participating in the trials, it would be foolish to wait for an objective approach to us — everything is decided by someone’s personal rejection, and probably a rollback from competitors!

    By "mobility" it should be understood that the Indians are dissatisfied with the resource and reliability of propulsion systems of Russian technology. And this is really a problem. In addition, there are claims to the comfort of personnel in these missile systems.

    I’ll venture to suggest that the Indians are trying to get from sellers on what element base these or other combat systems are made. And the answer that they are "made on armored personnel carriers" apparently does not suit them. After all, in which case you will have to overpay for parts manufactured in third countries, or even not get them at all? Therefore, the question "why the heck is a goat button accordion?" in India is incomprehensible.

    As the observer recalls, after a series of tests in various territories, including desert lands, “the only system that can qualify for a contract” was the K-30 Biho (Flying Tiger). This system was developed by the South Korean company Hanwha Defense.

    Yes, even the photo shows that it is simply LESS than our Tunguska, and it means it is easier and more mobile, but how is it with the ability to carry out the main task, to cover its troops?

    At the same time, it becomes possible to compare the Korean air defense system with a Russian complex of the same class.
    Cannons
    Both cars have 30 mm automatic guns, however, the Russian "Shell" they are paired, which significantly increases the rate of fire. For a Korean car, this figure is 600 rounds per minute, and for a Russian one - 2 rounds / min. for every couple. True, such a high rate of fire cannot be achieved solely by increasing the number of barrels; the whole thing is in the design of the Russian gun.

    Ammunition also varies. The domestic vehicle carries 1400 shots, while the Korean has only 600. Well, to finally deal with cannon weapons, it’s worth saying that the “Shell” is also ahead in effective firing range: 4 km versus 3 km from the K30 “Biho”

    Missiles
    The missile weapons of the Korean installation are represented by two KP-SAM Shin-Gung anti-aircraft missile units - two in each unit. These missiles were created at the turn of the 2000s as MANPADS, but they were also suitable for armament of an anti-aircraft missile system. The maximum range of destruction of Korean missiles reaches 7 kilometers, but the effective range is only 5. The solid-fuel rocket is equipped with an infrared homing head and carries a warhead weighing 2,5 kg.


    Missile armament of the Russian machine was developed specifically for use on the "Shell". The 57E6E two-stage missile carries a homing radio command head and warhead with rod striking elements. Mass warhead - 20 kilograms. The confident defeat of targets at ranges up to 18 kilometers and at an altitude of up to 15 kilometers leaves the Korean models far behind. It remains only to add that there are 12 such missiles on the Russian machine.

    Electronics
    The Korean ZRPU is equipped with a TPS-830K radar that detects targets at ranges of up to 17 kilometers, an optoelectronic system, a panoramic periscope, a laser range finder, a thermal imaging sight and a digital fire control system. All this should give the Korean installation the ability to quickly respond to threats in the range of weapons.

    "Shell-C1" is armed much richer, and most importantly, the electronic filling of the Russian complex can be changed, adapting to the needs of the customer. With one optoelectronic fire control system, the complex comes out noticeably cheaper. Adding radar increases the capabilities of the "Shell", but increases the cost. At the same time, Russian cars can, if necessary, form a joint digital network, thanks to which cars equipped with various types of radars can exchange data with each other.


    Instead of deducing
    Of course, the Russian ZRPK noticeably exceeds the Korean machine in combat potential. The only thing K30 "Biho" wins is in price. Korean hack more than two times cheaper. But It is worth noting that the machine is fully developed by South Korean experts and is produced by South Korea.

    On the Z30 K30 Biho mounted two 600-mm guns. The rate of fire of one gun is 300 rounds per minute. Each gun is equipped with XNUMX ready-to-use shells. To combat air targets used HE-FRAG high-explosive incendiary shells.

    The combat vehicle is equipped with a surveillance radar, an optoelectronic tracking system, a laser rangefinder, a thermal imaging sight and a modern high-precision digital fire control system, a friend-or-foe recognition system. Radar detection range is 17-20 km

    The K30 Biho is a 30 mm anti-aircraft self-propelled gun with 600 rounds of ammunition. She is exactly for 1 minute of shooting. Maybe this is enough. But the firing range is in any case artillery.

    Besides the 1400 shells, the “shell”, with a rate of fire up to almost two times as large, also has twelve missiles. And it is rockets in combination with cannon weapons that make the Shell a real leader. Because Biho is simply a fundamentally different weapon. Not to mention the possibility of automatic duty "Shell".

    This is not a matter of some kind of desert. Very similar to a donkey loaded with gold, which can take any fortress. Especially Indian. To catch the Korean golden donkey publicly and without noise and dust replace it with a domestic counterpart.

    Two years ago, India denied Russia the purchase of Shell and Tunguska.
    “Russia wants to again participate in the Indian tender for weapons and missile system”

    https://www.defensenews.com/global/asia-pacific/2018/12/18/russia-wants-back-in-on-indias-gun-and-missile-system-competition/
    “Russia filed a protest over India’s decision to exclude two of its systems from the $ 1,6bn army program, which caused a new tension between the two allies.
    During a meeting of the Indian-Russian intergovernmental commission on military-technical cooperation in New Delhi on Thursday with a visit, Russian Defense Minister General Sergei Shoigu expressed dissatisfaction with the fact that the modernized Tunguska system and the Shell system were excluded from the expected program. A source in the Indian Ministry of Defense confirmed. ”
