Will the Russian “Nerpa” drown the Indian “Chakra”?




The end of the naval cooperation between Russia and India may come as a result of the current situation with the Russian nuclear submarine.

The contract of the Russian military with the Indian on leasing the last nuclear submarine "Nerpa" can finally "kill" the prospects for further cooperation in this area due to problems in Russian shipbuilding.

At the end of October, the leased nuclear submarine of the 971 and Nerpa project must be received by the Indian Navy.

15 days will be spent at sea by Russian and Indian sailors. And to eliminate the comments will take about seven days. Before 24 November, an official Nerpa show will take place.

The said deadlines were coordinated and finally approved by high officials of both countries, who met in the Russian capital in early October. The Indian boat, as voiced by the Indian military, was named "Chakra". Already cast the emblem of the boat, which on the appointed day will be installed on the wheelhouse of the boat. It will not do without coconut - it will, according to local traditions, be broken by the spouse of the commander of the “Chakra”, the so-called “mother” of the boat.

However, the Indian side has serious concerns about the reliability of torpedoes and rocket-torpedoes stationed on the Nerp, which often do not “see” the target. So in early June, the boat showed itself not with the best hand. Now its reliability is only about 35%, while in the Soviet Union it is 95-97%.

According to informed people, the Indian Navy officials are significantly bogged down in this contract, so that even if they wanted to, they could no longer refuse it. In addition, a lot of money was spent on preparing the base for "Chakra" in India, which is already fully prepared. Three years stretches the transfer of "Nerpa".

“The Hindus no longer want a repetition of such problematic situations involving our ships,” the source explained. - Yes, and our shipbuilders understand that such contracts can be forgotten.

The fact that the Amur Shipbuilding Plant (it was there that the “Nerpa” was built) refuses to build nuclear submarines, the head of the USC Roman Trotsenko recently announced at a special press conference. Among the main reasons for the refusal, he called the presence of shallow water en route to the landfill in the Sea of ​​Japan.

Meanwhile, India now has its own Arihant nuclear submarine, which is equipped with ballistic missiles. The training platform for it should be "Chakra".

In total, it is planned to build five submarines under this project. Two objects are still under construction, and the first, the main ship began its voyage in the 2009 year.

Under the Nerpu contract, the Indian Navy will use 10 for years, which will result in a tidy sum of $ 650 million. The Indian military were to receive the Nerpa nuclear submarine as early as 2008. But during the tests, the automatic fire extinguishing system was unauthorizedly turned on, 20 people died. Therefore, the timing of its transfer to the Indian Navy were postponed.

The Russian nuclear submarine "Nerpa" - according to the NATO classification "Shark", also has the name "Pike-B" - from the third generation of submarines. Well armed. Impressive characteristics of cruise missiles "Granat", which hit a target with a range of up to three thousand kilometers, there are also torpedoes and torpedoes.

It reaches speeds up to 30 knots, sinks to a depth of 600 m, displacement is over 12 thousand tons. May be under water for up to 100 days, team members - 73 person. In the framework of this project, 1984 submarines came down from the stocks of the 15 year.

India got the Chakra submarine on lease for three years back in the 1988 year, during the Soviet era. Alexander Terenov, in those days, the captain of the 1 rank, led the Russian specialists. The leasing period ended in the 1991 year and was never extended, which went against the plans of the Indian military.

    The boat is good, and our carelessness ruined and not like that.

    In general, the frequent cases of refusal of India from our products begins to strain.

    We must think with our heads in the same USC ... Well, this is not Africa, which only needs AK, this is a rich country with which you can work and work.

    And something I did not understand about leasing, what does the 1991 have to do with the year?

      I also didn’t enter which combat past of the boat the author of the article recalls

      b] Russian and Indian sailors will spend 15 days together at sea. And it will take about seven days to eliminate the comments. By November 24, the official transfer of the Nerpa is due to take place.

      The said deadlines were coordinated and finally approved by high officials of both countries, who met in the Russian capital in early October. The Indian boat, as voiced by the Indian military, was named "Chakra". Already cast the emblem of the boat, which on the appointed day will be installed on the wheelhouse of the boat. It will not do without coconut - it will, according to local traditions, be broken by the spouse of the commander of the “Chakra”, the so-called “mother” of the boat.

      Everything seems to be clear here.

      And with this it’s somehow not clear

    God forbid that the Russian Federation ever created a Yars-24 missile with a capacity of 58 megatons.

    We are going to the polls!
    After which it will become obvious whether we will create something good and efficient next years ... or we will also stop at gas pipelines and the sale of oil.
    Since our furniture managers and their managers do not see prospects in the military industry ...... recourse

      ... they see no prospects in the military industry ..
      This is not entirely true - here we have replaced the General - if in the past there was an eccentric grandfather of not very high intelligence and flight - now they have set up a thief from Muscovites for hilling the largest budget in the region, here it is in technology - not boom-boom and yet with the obsession to change everything.

      Precisely "Pomegranate", but not "pomegranate" and "Granite".
      This is a subsonic small-sized strategic cruise missile that flies around the terrain and is intended for use against strategic ground targets with a range of 3 km. Mb equipped with a nuclear warhead.

    In general, it’s not good for Indians to beat coconuts on ships.
    You would have beaten champagne like all people, you see, and there would have been less problems.

    It’s not enough that we forgot how to build and test boats / in captivity /, we are destroying people, we’ll still lose strategic partners and buyers, there will still be roofing felts ... It’s not for you to draw brains from the people and throw pipes to the west.

    Will the Russian Nerpa drown the Indian Chakra?
    Well, if you really need to, then drown. (Thinking out loud). Indians are buyers, not enemies to us.

    We surrender and surrender our positions; we repel allies from ourselves. What will happen next?
    The Eurasian Union is falling apart before it even arises ...
