Media: India abandoned Russian Vikramadityi anti-aircraft complex



India announced it was abandoning the installation of the Vikramaditya aircraft-carrying cruiser of the Russian Kashtan anti-aircraft artillery system, media reported.
Instead, India is considering the possibility of acquiring French or Israeli systems, writes the relevant publication Strategy Page.

"Kashtan" - the Russian anti-aircraft missile artillery complex (ZRAK) "Dirk", which is designed for the defense of ships and stationary objects from high-precision weapons (anti-ship missiles), air targets (airplanes, helicopters), as well as for the firing of small marine and land targets. The complex has full automation of combat work from detection to destruction of the target.



Adopted in 1989, was installed on the Admiral Nakhimov and Peter the Great atomic missile cruisers, the Admiral aircraft cruiser fleet Soviet Union Kuznetsov ”and other ships.

The aircraft carrier Vikramaditya (the former heavy aircraft-carrying cruiser Admiral Gorshkov), which was transferred to the Indian Navy in Russian Severodvinsk in November last year, arrived at the naval base of Karvar on the coast of the southern Indian state of Karnataka 8 in January.

The largest export contract in the field of military-technical cooperation in the sale and modernization of Admiral Gorshkov was concluded with India in 2004. The Russian authorities were to hand over to Vikramadity in 2008. However, the repair and modernization of the Soviet aircraft-carrying cruiser was delayed, and its deadlines shifted to the end of 2012.

At the same time, the issue price has noticeably increased: the initial amount of the contract was 1,5 billion dollars, but already in the course of the work it exceeded 2 billion dollars. The total value of the transaction, according to unofficial data, is estimated at about 2,3 billion dollars.

An official ship handover ceremony was to take place in December 2012, but a few months before that, an accident occurred during sea trials in the Barents Sea. The aircraft carrier has failed power plant.

The problems occurred when an attempt was made to give full speed to the 30 nodes - three boilers that serve the ship’s steam turbines failed. As a result, the transfer of the aircraft carrier was postponed for another year and only 16 took place on November 2013 of the year.

          Right.
          Instead of Chestnut, India wants to acquire Israeli systems. India does not hide its dissatisfaction with the quality and characteristics of the systems of Russian weapons that have already been supplied to it. India already uses Israeli Barak-1 missiles, and now Israel offers much more advanced Barak-8 missiles.

      In addition, there are a couple more factors - the diversification of arms supplies, which they turn into collecting weapons and the hypertrophied conceit of the ancient holders of the mysterious knowledge about vimanas and other miracles transmitted orally. This secret knowledge prompted them to replace asbestos with bricks. Well, the result is known - the "curvature" of our shipbuilders. laughing

    I don’t understand anything. At first, India insisted on replacing the power plant, which led to an accident during sea trials and, as a result, to putting the system into operation. Then they installed their batteries on the submarine, which led to an explosion and fire. Maybe their agents of influence lobby someone’s interests. Now that’s an excellent, fully automated complex was not in the yard. Maybe the bucks are being thrown off?

    "Kashtan" for the Russian Navy is called "Kortik". Provides air defense for the near zone. They do it in Tula. Given that the aircraft carrier does not go alone, it is possible to completely abandon the air defense located on the ship itself. But "Kashtan" is a really highly effective ZRAK, a weapon of "last resort". Few "French" or "Jew" compares to him. In vain they are so, Indians. I will assume that they tried to bring down the price below the lower limit, but ours did not yield. In this sense, they (Hindus) are very harmful. Without "Kashtan" a certain "inferiority" will come, this is not a set of multi-colored flags, which does not matter from which manufacturer ...

    It is strange that this is considered news. It’s already known soooo that during the alteration of Gorshkov all air defense systems were removed. All artillery and the SAM Dagger. If there were plans for Kashtan, then it would have been set during the conversion.

    In general, I wonder who the Indians were going to fight on foreign territory. An aircraft carrier is a weapon of attack, and of prestige, of course. It is useless for defense. I understand China - they have territorial problems, but India doesn’t have that kind of thing, except for Sri Lanka. So there are a couple of destroyers enough. Or is it prestige?

    I have already expressed my opinion about "Kashtan" but I will repeat myself again. This air defense system can be called successful at a stretch. Firstly, the integration of cannon and artillery weapons in one "bottle" led to the need to equip this system with high-speed and high-precision cylindrical synchronous servo drives (SSP) to control weapon guidance in azimuth and elevation. Anyone who has dealt with SSP understands how difficult it is to realize high accuracy and speed in power SSP. At the same time, high accuracy is required mainly for guns (on the order of several arc minutes), and for missiles these requirements are much lower (plus or minus bast shoes). Further, when an air attack attack on a ship from different directions, Kashtan has to consistently transfer his guns and missiles to all directions where there is a threat to the ship. Given that targets at different azimuths can be located at a given time and at different ranges, such
    rotating the "head" is not the best solution, Next. The stock of missiles of the complex is limited and will be used up very quickly, and the possibilities of reloading missiles in the process of repelling a raid are more than limited. Therefore, it would be more rational to separate the guns from the missiles, and place the missiles in a vertical type launcher (fixed or revolving type). This makes it possible to have a much more solid stock of combat-ready missiles, the ability to fire missiles at the VC in any directions and angles without using complex and cumbersome SSPs, and to use bunches and missiles in areas where they are most effective at any given time. And it is easier to place spaced systems on a ship than combined ones. This trend, by the way, is dominant in most of the world's fleets. In this case, we observe an attempt to cross a hedgehog with a snake, which is understandable in principle since It is profitable for the manufacturers of land Tunguski and Shells to drag their developments to ships with minimal changes, minimal headache, and in the shortest possible time but with the maximum profit. Whether this is beneficial to the fleet is another question.

Corruption, like rust, destroys the greatest achievements of the best specialists, on which many people want to warm their hands for nothing, but simply for some kind of squiggle on a piece of paper. At the expense of the Czech Republic - she is not our friend since 1999 of the year. Eastern Europe from the Gorbachev-Yeltsin era turned to us booty. And India has never refused friendship with us.

      integration of cannon and artillery weapons in one "bottle"
      It is associated with the need to reduce weight and size characteristics. aircraft carrier, although a large ship, but not dimensionless. In addition, why make 2 SSP, 2 expensive optical and radar tracking systems, if you can do one, it is much cheaper.
      SSP tracking accuracy is easy enough to ensure that what servomotors have learned to do. But to ensure the stabilization of the platform during the shooting burst, this is a big problem. Apparently for this reason, the cannon complex was developed specifically to provide less impact.
      We can only speculate about the true reasons for India's refusal to put "Chestnuts" on Vikramaditya. But as a specialist in the creation of air defense systems, I can say with a high degree of probability that this is due to the complete automation of the Kashtan system. The aircraft carrier is primarily intended to support aviation flights. And if the Kashtan complex does not have a reliable system of state identification, and it is not available in the export version, then you can easily knock down your planes. If the Indian system of state identification is installed on Kashtan, it is obvious that the Indians themselves doubt its reliability, so they do not want to risk it.
      The next important factor is a comprehensive approach to creating an air defense system based on uniform technological and software principles. If India has decided to equip the aircraft carrier with Israeli air defense systems, then the radar reconnaissance systems and ACS should be the same company. Otherwise, there will be a problem in the algorithms of combat support and quality of target designation. In addition, in the case of an emergency, such as an accident, missed targets or false alarms, it will be very difficult to find the extreme.
      But I personally do not understand why, without conducting comparative tests, India again makes decisions that clearly smell like another corruption scandal. Several years ago, a number of Indian officials were already involved in receiving large bribes from Israeli companies, and Israeli companies were removed from MTC with India, then they were allowed, but with special control measures enshrined in a special Law on MTC with Israel, and now everything seems to be back to square one own. As the saying goes, “let the hand of the giver not fail,” especially when the recipients hold high government posts. It is a pity that the recipients of kickbacks do not understand that sooner or later, they will have to pay a much higher price.

      India 90x and modern India are two big differences. In 90, India had no particular choice, no serious money, no experience. America preferred to sell weapons to Pakistan, China was also not a friend of India, and Russia was ready to sell everything to anyone who wanted, sometimes for nothing. Now it is a completely different country with different opportunities and the whole world is already different. It is not for nothing that many high-tech western companies give a lot of their work, especially in the IT field, to the same India. And cheap and quite angry. Again, the negativity in working with Russian companies, India has accumulated pretty much (we recall only the epic with this aircraft carrier). Therefore, the Indians have become more circumspect in choosing counterparties, and even in India itself, the compliance of the purchased / created equipment with the requirements of the national defense has become more attentive and professional.
