Indian Navy announces tender for supply of MRMR 9 naval reconnaissance aircraft

The Indian Navy has issued a request for proposals for the supply of medium-range MRMR (Medium Range Maritime Reconnaissance) medium-range naval reconnaissance aircraft, estimated at 9 billion dollars.


According to Janes Defense Weekly, the Defense Procurement Board approved a program for acquiring maritime patrol aircraft in February 2012. The new aircraft will replace the 13 in service with the BN-2 Icelander of Britten Normann.

Earlier, in February 2011, the Indian Navy issued a request for information on the delivery of medium-range naval reconnaissance aircraft.

The request provided for the delivery of an aircraft capable of carrying out patrols at sea, fighting enemy ships, electronic intelligence, search and rescue operations. It must be equipped with two engines and perform tasks in adverse weather conditions with a full combat load (minimum 2 RCC) during 4 hours. The flight radius must be at least 400 nautical miles.

Airbus Military (Airbus Military) with the C-295 Marine Patrol Version, Alenia Aermakki Marine Patrol Version with the ATR-72MP, Boeing (Boeing) concept with a marine patrol plane concept (MPA) based on P-8 Poseidon, Bombardier with Q400 with Israeli equipment Elta (Elta), Embraer with EMB-145, Lockheed Martin with SC-130J "Sea Hercules", "Dassault" (Dassault) with "Falcon-900MPA" and Swedish "Saab" (Saab), which offers Saab-2000 MPA.

The MRMR should be one of the elements of the maritime aerial surveillance network. The decision to create it was made after the terrorist attack on Mumbai in November 2008. The network will cover 5422 km of the coastline of India, 1197 islands and 2,01 million square meters. km of the exclusive maritime economic zone.

        On the basis of 204, while one is being tested (in the photo below Tu-214R), and the second, as far as I know, in the project (Tu-204P)

        Everything has its time, but I would like, of course, quickly smile

          Aircraft integrated radio and optical reconnaissance. Developed by Tupolev based on the Tu-214 civilian aircraft. It is produced by KAPO named after Gorbunov OJSC (Kazan). The contract for the manufacture of a prototype and two Tu-214R aircraft within the framework of the Fraction-4 development and experimental design was signed with the Russian Ministry of Defense on November 29, 2002. According to the contract, the aircraft, after testing and refinement, were to be transferred to the Russian Air Force before November 15, 2008. As of December 2006, the first copy was under construction at KAPO, and the second copy was being completed so far as a repeater in the same place. The delivery of aircraft to the customer was planned for 2007.

          The first flight of the RA-64511 lead aircraft took place on December 24, 2009. The crew performed the first flight consisting of: ship commander A.I. Zhuravlev, co-pilot - S.Yu.Sheffer, flight engineer - E.B. Volkov, navigator - E.A. .Kudryavtsev, flight attendant - I.A. Nikulin, engineer - V.N. Filimoshkin. In 2010, in the final assembly shop of KAPO, the second instance was already being completed as a Tu-214R for the Russian Ministry of Defense. As of April 2012, the second instance is still in the same place without a side-view radar. According to the annual report of KAPO for 2011, the delivery of the Air Force planes is planned for 2013 and 2014. accordingly (at the end of 2009 it was planned to transfer aircraft to the customer in 2011).

        Existing power is in the way. In the USSR, the Navy aviation, if memory serves, had two battles (anti-submarine air divisions) on Tu-142, 6 or 7 planes on the Il-38, two (or more?) Regiments on the Be-12, and several (separate squadrons) on IL-38 and Be-12. Only about 300 anti-submarine aircraft, not counting helicopters. Now there are several Tu-142 and about 12 Il-38. And that’s it! And no prospects. And this despite the fact that the length of the sea borders has not decreased, and the activity of neighbors in the development of the shelf and catch of fish is constantly increasing. Yes, and the ships of the adversary’s Navy regularly come ostensibly on visits, but in fact, in order to develop the water area and study the navigational and hydrographic features of navigation in our nearby sea zones ...

          One can argue with that. Given the growth rate and the general trend, I would not be so sure if you were in my place. Moreover, none of the mere mortals saw a detailed rearmament plan, and therefore, such statements are more subjective than objective.

            You can, of course, argue if you do not know the subject of the dispute. And I know, because I served in the "upper" headquarters just at the time when the GPV-2020 was "imposing" (the State armament program, and not the "rearmament plan," as you wrote). Partly familiar with her regarding the Navy. Therefore, my “statements” are much more objective than they may seem ignorant of this issue. For example, as regards Tu-214 and Tu-204 aircraft, they were rejected by the MO commission (consisting mainly of specialists from the Navy and Naval Aviation) as early as the beginning of the 90-s as they did not meet the requirements for promising aviation reconnaissance systems. Those. these planes were no longer suitable then, 20 years ago! And now they assure us that this is what we need. Question: who needs it? It is clear to whom - manufacturers to sell, and officials to "PR" and tick off. Like this!

      It depends on where. In the seas - yes, but on the ocean, in my opinion, something like the Tu-214P is better. In general, the ekranoplanes are best of all, of course, but they will have to wait an order of magnitude longer. smile

        Let me disagree with you, for patrolling the coastal zone and conducting search and rescue operations, the possibility of take-off / landing from the water surface will not be superfluous at all. And for this BE-200 is still better, in my opinion.

          Versatility is not always good. An aircraft of this class should be able to not only detect, but also respond in certain cases. For search and rescue operations, there are coast guards and the Ministry of Emergencies. hi

            The request provided for the supply of an aircraft capable of performing patrol tasks at sea, fighting enemy ships, electronic intelligence, and search and rescue operations. It must be equipped with two engines and perform tasks in difficult weather conditions.

              Most likely, search and rescue operations mean the detection and illumination of the “target” before the arrival of the ships / aircraft corresponding to the situation.

                I delicately recommend that you ask the surviving submariners of the Komsomolets nuclear submarine (http://www.agesmystery.ru/node/1817), but do they need "backlight and target designation" aircraft in the Barents Sea in April?!? Well, these "airplanes" flew to them, well, they dropped the parachutes. And who will sail for them in the APRIL (!!!) Barents Sea? Let me remind you that three submariners died from hypothermia already on board the vessel that picked them up. Let me also remind you that the boat sank only 180 km from Bear Island. The Be-200 could save ALL !!!. But for this it was necessary that he be in service with the Northern Fleet’s MSS. Only to Gorbachev, as the Supreme Commander-in-Chief, all this was from X ... For much more global tricks roamed in his brain: Perestroika, Freedom, Cooperation and other "liberals." Such an aircraft as the Be-200 and now desperately needed in the PSS Fleets. Only WHAT for Gorbachev the death of 42 submariners of the most modern nuclear submarine of the Soviet Union at that time ??? So, annoying nose in the nose. And what about Putin the entire crew of the Kursk nuclear submarine ??? "... she drowned ...". Therefore, the Fleets have no Be-200 in the Search_Saving variant. And if a similar accident happened now (Lord, carry this cup by us !!!), only survivors of the MIRACLE will survive, and not with the help of special technical equipment made for the salvation. Something like this. Sincerely.

                  Nothing prevents the Ministry of Emergency Situations to launch rescue Be-200s in the north. The planes discussed in the article have a completely different purpose. No need to substitute concepts.

        Apparently, for the same reason that the company Tupolev merged. Whatever they fly, competition is all the same. It is a pity, of course, that Russia is not participating in the tender.

    From urya - they don’t know that choosing a model for adoption is not their oura-dog thing. Technical specialists are engaged in this, who give an answer to the customer, according to his requirements, according to the proposals participating in the tender of companies, in the form of three options: yes, no, possibly during revision.
    And ours all uses a sleeve from a three-inch one fellow - and he won.

    silt 38 25 tons of fuel tactical radius, 2200 km (time spent in the area at altitudes from 500 to 2000 m with a load of 5850 kg of at least 3 h)
    An Airbus Military with a C-295 marine patrol version having 45 tons of fuel on board will be able to provide patrols for 3 hours at a distance of about 930 km from the airfield
    Despite the fact that the silt 38 was not a masterpiece, had a bunch of flaws, the flight characteristics of the aircraft made in the 1967 in the USSR were comparable to a completely new European aircraft. But TU 214 is obviously inferior to new examples of adversary technology.
    200 doesn’t fit here not because it’s bad, but because it can’t hang in the patrol area for a long time (even for two hours it doesn’t sag and will not pull along the patrol range)
    That is why it is impossible to reanimate the 44 yak using all the latest developments, because according to the calculations, he could patrol up to 6,5 hours !?

    The Yankees will throw such high-tech crap to them ... And India will be enslaved by the Yankees. Whoever likes it, the Russians, the country, are kinder and wiser, and the Yankees will deceive, they have it in BLOOD.

    Not weak such a transition from the “Icelander”. Well this is almost a museum rarity. In general, it is strange that they were able to use these "maize" for so long as patrolmen. Crews, it turns out, will also have to cook from scratch, regardless of who wins the tender.

    What, what about the shit to throw, it's in their blood. If they don’t throw this shit to someone or do something nasty, half of the country will not be able to sleep peacefully.
