Russia and India plan to sign a contract for the supply of three more frigates

The source told the author of the material that the Russian side should not worry about concluding a new contract, since it is planned to install the Brahmos anti-ship joint Russian-Indian development missile on the new ships, unlike the previously transferred and under construction ships. In addition, the Indian Navy is very pleased with the experience of operating ships of this class.

The contract amount is 3 billion dollars. As noted in the Russian blog BMPD devoted to weapons, the price seems too high.

Recall 14 July 2006, Moscow and New Delhi signed a contract for the construction of three frigates for the Indian Navy. The contract value was 1 billion. 600 million dollars.

The first frigate Tag ("Saber") was handed over to the customer at the end of April 2012. The second ship, the Tarkash (“Quiver”), was transferred to India in November 2012. The third frigate Trikand ("Bow") was launched in May 2011.

The 1136.5 frigates are designed to conduct combat operations in the ocean and sea areas independently and as part of a ship connection as an escort ship. Their combat capabilities make it possible to search for and destroy enemy submarines, carry out anti-ship, anti-aircraft and anti-submarine defense of warships and ships at sea, strike ships and vessels, support ground forces combat operations and provide amphibious landing forces.

Baltic Shipbuilding Plant “Yantar” was formed on July 8 1945. The company specializes in the construction of small and medium-tonnage vessels for military and civilian purposes, as well as ship repair works. For almost 66-year-old history The factory built 154 warships and over 500 civilian ships. The controlling stake of PSZ "Yantar" belongs to the state.

        When we train in Indians, we won’t deprive ourselves of anything - salaries, experience, after so many years of stagnation will not hurt, and money is needed to convert the factories themselves to modern equipment. I'm not talking about indirect assistance to steelworkers and other related industries, so I think we will not stay in the loser.

          Well, "kickbacks" were not invented in Russia. All over the world, Western corporations have promoted this way. We just learned from experience. It is clear that specific Hindus have received something, but this is their question (not ours). If not us, other (Western companies) would have "rolled back". Still, it is good that we have India, from such cooperation, and they are good for us.

            a few questions

            1- the contract has not been signed yet, and our sorrow activists start blowing in advance and throwing them into the press (this has already happened hundreds of times, that everything will be practically signed by super contracts, and then again, oh, and for some reason they bought from the USA)

            2-If a contract is signed, who will execute it? Amber that has barely coped with the previous order for ships 11356 and is now busy with the construction of three ships for our Navy, 4 works at the initial stage stopped OSK again breaks the price

            3-there is a Balt plant which at one time fulfilled the first order for three frigates - will they give it?

            that is, there are more questions than answers, but as always, we are ahead of the rest in all faults

          In the event that ROSPIL was overlooked, no one canceled it. Revenues go through Rosoboronexport all the same and there are more than enough who wish for it.

        I agree. So my question arises: if we are so smart that we are building for others, why then are we so poor?

    That's right, but now we have a catastrophic shortage of ships of the 1st and 2nd rank, that we load capacities and do not lose the potential of shipbuilders well, but now we need to complete our fleet.

      I agree that we ourselves need ships, but it would be thought that the state would have such an opportunity, if they would fill the shipyards with their orders, it means there isn’t enough money yet, well, do not refuse the Indians if they liked our ships, we’ll yawn their market intercept other countries .

        Firstly, ships!
        Secondly, the Indians are our partners.
        Thirdly, it was they who revived our aircraft and shipbuilding with their orders, at the very time when OUR state did not invest a penny at all.
        Fourth, the more orders, the better. Like a cow - the more you milk, the more the udder.
        The industry needs to gain momentum, fine-tune relations with allies, technological chains, identify weaknesses in the workplace, let the specialists update their knowledge and transfer experience to young people, and people need to feed their families with something.
        Fifth, our fleet needs not only quantity, but also the quality of ships under construction. And no quality is possible without orders and investment in production. Thanks to the Indians for supporting us with their orders in difficult years.

    I liked the last sentence in the article: - The controlling stake in the plant belongs to the state. In all factories it would be so ... And then fucking private owners owning controlling stakes, act only in their selfish interests.

    The main thing is that this does not affect the supply of ships to our Fleet. And they have money today, and tomorrow the "taburts-chub-geese" will cut them offshore.

    Definitely, but for the modernization of the enterprise, to fulfill the defense order, money is also needed. This was once said on the air.

    The news is positive. We will work out the construction of such ships, see how they "go", make the necessary changes and go ahead, build for our fleet ...

      "Let's work out the construction of such ships" - how much more to work out? 1135 one of the most massive projects was in the USSR, and 11356 have already built six of them ...

    prices are 6 years old and we only have a rent for this time 2 the minimum of what they want has increased. it’s their crisis of world prices that are going down; on the contrary, we need to compensate for losses in foreign markets. monopoly prices are rising no matter what. in the states, the price of gas for 3 years fell in roses. The price of goods in currency terms is constantly increasing as the ruble does not devalue. soldier

    Strangely, the Brahmos anti-ship missiles are already on the second three.
    And for the order, "dung" between Yantar, Severnaya Verf and the Baltic Shipyard will probably start again

    The news seems to be not bad, but a tub of slops has already been poured. And, what would be better would be like - "India sent tries .... Russia with such ships" or "Nobody wants to buy Russian frigates, because they are outdated during construction." And the "well-wishers? No.

    There is good news. As you can see from the article in the newspaper "Military-Industrial Courier" - on April 18, the bookmark of "Admiral Butakov" will finally take place. According to the plan, it should be in November 2012, then postponed to March 20, 2013. But do not be upset the construction of the frigate was underway.

      Estimate such a situation, suddenly, the good god gave Russia immediately 40 frigates, and what will you do with them? Do not hesitate, I’ll tell you - put them against the wall (if there is enough space) and they will safely rot even once before you go to sea, why ?, try to guess for yourself.

    From the fact that we have bad personnel and base logistics, it does not follow that it is necessary to build ships for the "uncle." From this it follows only that it is necessary to work to improve the state of affairs with personnel and bases.
    And then you don’t need about God and 40 ships. Ships are made not by God, but specific people, but as for 40 ships ... At the Pacific Fleet, for example, in principle, there’s not just one relatively new ship ... You don’t need 40, you need at least 2-3.

      Yes, I know that the lady doesn’t build ships, and the lady doesn’t prepare personnel, and not half a year, and we need not two or three, but to ensure the defense of the near sea zone and minimal influence in the ocean, it is necessary for three fleets in order to have 30-40 frigates and 40-50 corvettes, not counting the good hundreds of other types of ships, without which these very frigates are almost useless and doomed to heroic death or inglorious decay.
      And all this is necessary for the cut, and the ships and the coastal structure, and if you strain hard and leave all of Russia without pants and skirts, then this will take about fifteen years (or more).

    For pessimists, I would like to inform you that at the moment there are 6 frigates at different stages of construction for the Russian Navy. April 18 to join them the seventh. If everything is in chocolate, three more will be laid by the end of the year. According to the plan, the commissioning of "Admiral Gorshkov" is scheduled for this year, but judging by the latest photos, it is possible that this term will be postponed to 2014. Also, according to the plan, this year it is planned to launch two frigates - "Admiral Grigorovich" and "Admiral Kasatonov". To anyone interested, I can tell you plans for other types of Russian ships.

    Frigates of project 1136.5 is a lifesaver for the Russian fleet! Firstly, it is standardization of the type for the fleet, secondly, in case of problems of the Russian economy, a large series will make them cheap, thirdly, the phased introduction of new weapons systems will remove a lot of problems in developing new systems while maintaining the combat readiness of ships. The fourth conclusion, the next frigate MUST be developed on the basis of project 1136.5, so that the first three pluses do not disappear (the implementation of the new frigate 22350 project is already known to stall). And it would be logical to do the project of a new destroyer again on the basis of project 1136.5. It will turn out to be a fairly logical line for the development of the fleet with cheap implementation, similar to the US Berkeley destroyers. It is foolish to invent a bicycle when there is this successful project.
