TsKB MT Rubin entered the final list for the construction of six diesel-electric submarines for the Indian Navy

The Russian Central Design Bureau MT Rubin was included in the final list of companies that will continue to participate in the tender for the construction of six non-nuclear submarines for the Indian Navy. The Indian Ministry of Defense announced a short list of companies on January 21, NDTV reported.


According to published information, the list of the Indian military department included two Indian companies as contractors: Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders and Larsen & Toubro, as well as five foreign companies: Central Design Bureau MT Rubin (Russia), Naval Group (France), ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems ( Germany), Navantia (Spain) and Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (South Korea). Swedish Saab withdrew from the tender in the fall of 2019.

The final list of companies was determined on January 21 during a meeting of the Defense Procurement Council, chaired by Indian Minister of Defense Rajnath Singh.

The winning bidder will have to build six diesel-electric submarines for the Indian Navy. According to the requirements of Indian military sailors, the new submarines should be about one and a half times larger than the Calvari class submarines today, with a displacement of 1550 tons and a hull length of 67 meters. Such characteristics are needed to increase the combat capabilities of submarines.

NPLs must carry at least 12 cruise missiles on board to destroy ground targets along with anti-ship missiles, as well as 18 heavy torpedoes.

The winner of the competition will be determined at the end of 2020, the contract value is approximately 6,3 billion dollars.

Earlier it was reported that Russia proposed to India the joint development of a new diesel-electric submarine based on the Amur-1650 submarine, rather than the licensed construction of existing projects. At the same time, Moscow is ready to transfer to the Indian side the rights to all intellectual property intended for the construction of a prototype and the design of future submarines. In short, in this situation, India will not have any restrictions on the number of submarines being built under this project.

      The competitors are actually serious, everyone has VNEU technologies. What we unfortunately cannot boast of ...

        So the speech in the order seemed to be about building a diesel-electric submarine (!) And not about boats with VNEU !!!). The latter are much more expensive and require the creation of special coastal infrastructure (for refueling submarines!) .... Or am I misunderstanding something?

            Something new, but not in vain! The Germans know how to do, but they are by no means noticed in altruism!

                It is clear that nuclear powered ships are not available for them, but they made diesel moves with high quality.

        In this matter - it’s better not to MULTIPLE !!!
        Firstly - NOT a FACT that is "100% better!"
        Secondly - there is still such a "funny" criterion, which is called: "cost / effectiveness"!!! wassat And NOBODY has canceled it yet !!!
        PS I would like to remind you that YENNO Russian DEPLs are sold on the world market much more SUCCESSFULLY than German! tongue

        In WWII, they had better tanks, but that did not save them ... It has long been proven that it is better to have 10 just good tanks (planes, pistols ....) than one wunderwafel.

    And in the middle of the project, it will turn out the same as it happened with the joint development of a promising heavy fighter. As a result, both the money was spent and the time wasted, and the results were zero!

    Maybe this will help win the tender.

      Very tempting offer. But by the beginning of construction we should offer them VNEU and GED on a direct current and superconductors ...
      And with our weapons, Amur-1650 fully meets the requirements of the customer. Moreover, their BrahMos will fit in as if they were there. And nothing extra will need to be “mated”. This is also a plus!

        Definitely. And for the Indians and for us. And the temptation is that even with the transfer of the entire technology package, they, in spite of their hopes and self-confidence, are unlikely to succeed, due to the national mentality tradition of replacing ITR qualifications with the number of hands whose curvature does not have values. There are examples of this. As a result, we get what? wink

        Hello boa buddy, hello! Alas, the Brahmos will not fit. Amur 1650 has no vertical launchers. 950 has, but 1650 does not. Paradox. But they won’t fit in TA. There, in general, the project will have to be radically redone. And under the vertical PU and VNEU, which is not.

          Rudolph, friend, glad to see you on the site!
          So still have to refine. Insert VNEU, and silos remain.
          I googled 950 pictures and quietly froze: deja vu!
          So this is "azuha" in miniature !!!

    From what I wrote, I understood that the Indians first proposed to develop a submarine project for their TK at their own expense, and only then make a decision on the tender whose submarine to build.
    If this is so, then Asian "gypsies" cannot be denied cunning.

    Pakistan ordered the PRC eight latest diesel-electric submarines, 4 of which will be built in Karachi. India is lagging behind.

      This is Pakistan lagging behind. And essentially.
      To date, Pakistan has 8 submarines in service. And that’s it.
      India has 14 submarines in service. One on the chassis and 6 are under construction.
      Of the 14 in service, one nuclear (Russian) leased for 10 years.

    The project is interesting. Already under development since the early 2000s. And as always, all the best for export.

      It is so best that St. Petersburg has not been able to accept the fleet for many years as an experienced and still in the combat strength of the fleet. The project failed miserably and the Indians are unlikely to choose it.

    Interestingly, they have what kind of power plant requirements? If VNEU, then we don’t have one .... And the Indians always want to arm themselves with all the most modern on the planet earth laughing
