In the Indian press: Indian Navy will be in third place in the world by 2030

The Indian media published material that describes the prospects of the Indian Navy. It is stated that by 2030 the Indian fleet will become the third in the number of warships and their displacement in the world, bypassing including the Russian one. Not only that, it is argued that in terms of the number of aircraft carriers, India can bypass China in 2030 and become second in the world after the United States Navy.


Statements of this nature did not find unequivocal support even within India itself. In particular, it is noted that for the country's Navy to take 3rd place in the world, Indian shipyards in the coming years should be literally “inundated” with orders for the construction of surface ships and submarines. Additionally, it is pointed out that in this case, the Indian Navy can be in the top three only if practically no new equipment is built for other navies in other countries.

Today, the Indian Navy includes one active aircraft carrier - Vikramaditya. This, as you know, is the former Admiral Gorshkov. Another aircraft carrier continues to be built.

The submarine fleet consists of 15 (according to other sources - 16) submarines, most of which are related to project 877EM (development of the Halibut project) of diesel-electric submarines.

The Indian Navy has 11 destroyers, 15 frigates, two Karmot type corvettes (INS Karmot and INS Kadmat), and 12 other similar corvettes are at different stages of construction. There are also 6 landing ships in service, plus patrol ships, minesweepers and auxiliary vessels.

The publication in the Indian press that the Indian Navy in 10 years will go to 3rd place in the world in the number and displacement of warships and 2nd place in the number of aircraft carriers was extremely skeptical in China.

Sohu writes:

These statements look arrogant. To believe that the Indian fleet will surpass the Russian one, which is highly appreciated in the United States, is too bold. And getting into the 2nd place by the number of aircraft carriers is no less bold, considering that in addition to Liaoning and Shandong, there are Type002 and Type003 under construction in China, and 3 more are going to be laid in the coming years.

      I’m not sure if the people of India know that the Chinese are skeptical about these plans. So for internal use it will do.
      Did they make a statement about Armat divisions and Su-57 regiments? We still have some in euphoria.

    The number of ships is not a fleet yet (this is in the first place) ... and in the second, you will have to strain a lot. Against Pakistan? Stupid. Against China - hopelessly ...

    Perhaps, they can come out in terms of quantity, given that our Navy is replenishing too slowly, but quality is also important, and technologically they will be inferior to Japan and Great Britain and France, and it’s completely unrealistic to go around China for aircraft carriers for them. But the claims are obvious, the Indians spend a lot on defense, so they will progress to the sea and to the third place completely, they can get out. Not by the 3th, most likely, but a little later they can.

          Who cares ... what is an Indian, what is an Arab ...

          Some, biblical religious mythology, are already on a par with historical sources. What Russian, what a Jew, what's the difference. So we got to the fairy tales. I have nothing against fairy tales, but Sinbad was an Arab, he lived in Baghdad, and went on his "expeditions" from Basra. But to confuse an Arab with a Hindu, as that, not very much, even though they are all, "somewhere there." By the way, the name of Sinbad, comrade Jovanni, is spelled incorrectly. One hundred percent, he did not read these fairy tales in childhood, he just did not hear the name somewhere.

      Dominate Pakistan, stop China sneaking into the zone of interests of India. There is now the very Bangladesh that the Indians actually saved, fell to China as partners, this is the third threatened direction for India (in addition to China and Pakistan).

        This is also from which side and how to look. All are armed and vigorous, direct military confrontation, war, so Schaub in full, this is unlikely. Most likely, the methods will be applied differently, without involving a mass of troops.
        In general, the conflicts there are old, some "rules" have taken place at the moment. Reaching the red line and stepping over is very doubtful.

    "TSAMTO, January 16, 2020. Due to a lack of funds, the Indian Navy is cutting some of its planned purchases. This move, according to senior officers, will negatively affect the protracted process of modernization of the fleet and its efficiency.
    According to Jane's Defense Weekly, citing official sources in the Indian Navy, in recent months, the Navy has reduced plans to acquire ships and vessels.
    According to senior military officials, the spending cuts that have negatively affected the modernization and procurement programs for the Navy are unlikely to end in FY2020-21, as the country's economic growth slows and inflation rises. It should be noted that similar issues also affect the Indian Army and Air Force. "
    Here is the third place in the world ...

    Now is an era
    purely political tryndzh,
    marketing and PR,
    And at all.

    The general tendency to make such Mega statements, such as we will master Mars by such a year. Then they either say that we do not need Mars, we will fly to another galaxy, or the terms are shifted strongly to the right, such as three years, then five, then another ten.

    Hindus showed modesty, they could just as well declare that they will be number one.

    Judging by how they, courageously, fought the fire on the submarine, standing at the pier, they would have time to take 23 place. Ships are not yet a fleet. Fleet people. It seems Peter the Great said .. I don’t remember exactly ..

    highly skeptical about China.
    It is understandable, because China itself sins with bravura statements, the number of which sometimes rolls over with criticism of military equipment from other countries (including Russian). Sohu puts a lot of effort into this. On the other hand, every sandpiper praises its swamp.

      Well, China is building ships at a furious pace. Objectively, they do not crawl out of the seas. Constant presence in the Indian Ocean, calls to African ports, annually 1-2 long-distance missions to Europe to Kiel. How to show in battle? This can be imputed to all ships of the current fleets. Except perhaps for Perry and Berkov (well, you can add Tiku - but a blow to the Iranian Watermelon is not an indicator + using them as missile platforms for the democratization of Iraq / Yugoslavia).

      On May 11, a 7 (!!!!) destroyer for 112 missiles was launched without ceremony at all.

      Le 7e destroyer Type 055, qui a été mis à l'eau le 11 Mai au chantier naval Jiangnan Changxing

      The Indians have much weaker Visakapatnam go very hard. The Chinese lead 052D - Kunming was laid six months earlier, and now the Chinese already have 11-12 such destroyers in service, and the general series is 30. The Indians have 0, and the general series 4. Moreover, the Indians have one type of VPU for SAMs - 32 missiles and another type for anti-ship missiles / missiles - 16 rockets. Again 052D - drags and heavier SAMs (for Indians it is closer to Calm) and has 64 universal launch cells.


      And on strike means, the Chinese have their own caliber, which they made in partnership, gracefully bypassing the range ban. For Indians, the range is not so rosy.

    Well, recently he silently "rivets" ships. As for criticism, this is the tradition of everyone. We "spread rot" verbally and in the media, American technology and partly Chinese. The Chinese "spread rot" to others, incl. and U.S. Standard situation. If you don't criticize, you won't sell
