TSAMTO: India purchases Apache and Chinook helicopters

37
After 3-year-old reflections and 13 extensions, the Ministry of Finance of India finally approved the purchase of XHUMX attack helicopters AH-22D Apache and 64 heavy transport helicopters CH-15F Chinook, reports TSAMTO.

TSAMTO: India purchases Apache and Chinook helicopters


The total transaction value is estimated at $ 3,1 billion.

The government security committee is expected to approve the purchase on Tuesday before the Indian Prime Minister leaves for the UN General Assembly session.

“Apache” and “Chinuk” were declared winners of tenders as early as 2012, negotiations on them ended at the end of 2013. However, the Defense Ministry then could not pay an advance of about 15% of the cost. The financial capacity of the department has deteriorated due to the redirection of $ 2 billion, intended for the purchase of weapons, to provide current expenses.

In turn, Boeing, which has repeatedly extended the validity of the offer, threatened to increase prices by 40% if the issue is not resolved until the end of September.

According to the newspaper, the Apaches will be acquired along with the 8 of the thousands of Hellfire ATGMs.

According to Indian sources, “currently there are three Russian Mi-26 heavy helicopters in service with the Indian Air Force, only one of which is serviceable, and six of the Mi-26 / 25 attack helicopters from 35 are in storage, the others have been in service” .

            why on earth? India is a superpower, not a satellite of Russia, and it probably buys weapons with a number of restrictions on technology transfer.

              I have a question about Chinook, you are familiar with this technique.
              In the event of a failure of one of the engines, it seems that the second one transfers part of the energy, something like that, to the failed engine? What would be the opportunity to land the car.

        And what does corruption have to do with it? The Hindus are simply pushing the Americans in their direction. Specifically, on the purchase, we can say that the Indians most likely decided to follow the path of the Saudis - to buy weapons from that country for the loyalty they expect. Russia also defends its interests, the Indians could buy instead of the Apaches the Russian Mi-28, Mi-35, Ka-52? Could ... And instead of "Chinook" Mi-26? Could ...
        Well, what is India’s choice, now don’t be offended if Pakistan gets a new batch of Russian Mi-35s, if not Mi-28s at all.

      Well, at least a massive bunch of radar + ATGM.

      Apache Longbow has it, especially since the Indians are already buying with the new radar and Maverick.

      Ka-52 has a good radar, even better in characteristics than Apache (corny because of the larger canvas). But there is no ATGM. Moreover, Ka-52 is currently approved only for the use of NURSs.

      Mi-28Н does not have a developed radar, and at the time of selection (2012), in general there was only a mock-up with promises to do everything. Now the first radar vehicles were delivered only this year (Iraq - 2 vehicles + the main headboard for Algeria will be given up by the end of the year), while with trial operation and wagon restrictions. And again, there are no ATGMs. Not mock-ups, but serial ones, with tolerances and an example of work in the combat unit.

    It seems to me that this behavior of India in the procurement of air force equipment is due to the fact that they are trying to influence Russia in matters of the SU-35 and the future PAK FA ... They want a lot from us right away ... But there was a deflection in front of the states. ..

      There was also a story with the "Krasnopols", when the Indians, a couple of years after the purchase, put forward a claim for low-quality shells. They began to understand and found out that the Indians had saved money by purchasing shells from us in the usual version, moreover, they stored them in open areas, often even without a canopy. Although the documents clearly stated: storage is a warehouse with a certain temperature range and a certain maximum humidity.

    Why be surprised here? Emperor Alexander was still talking. that we have only two allies: the army and the navy. India. perhaps he does what we would do - it is not known who will be on horseback in the future: Russia or the United States. Yes, and they want to have weapons from different countries, so as not to give any priority to anyone.This is our first seemingly ally of Lukashenka, but he is like a snake wriggling in front of the West, but on the issues of recognition and non-recognition of Abkhazia, Tskhinvali, Transnistria, Crimea. But the Indians did not seem to appreciate the fact that Russia has shared its new technologies in the creation of "Brahmos", tank building, which has never been from the United States. Well, shish with them, Indians. You have to clench your teeth and work, work, and we only have to steal, bastards, they can not be afraid of responsibility, as they will serve several years and go out to live on the loot and located in offshore.

    Most likely, the Indians liked the service, plus helphires worthy of the rocket that have long established themselves. For the future confrontation with China by the joint efforts of Southeast Asia, the unification of helicopters with the Allies also did its job.

    Plus, do not forget that the United States finally reconciled with the Indian regime, forgiving it for nuclear ambitions, which at one time greatly spoiled these relations. This means that India is returning to the circle of interests of the states, therefore, we should expect the signing of joint trade, economic, military and political agreements. Thus, the United States will try to shift its cooperation in Asia from China to India, wrapping it in a strong allied embrace.

    The Hindus have been using the Chinooks for a long time ... at the same time they have been exploiting them to the fullest (when they moved from one airfield to another, I was shocked, kerosene leaks from the ceiling into the cabin and flapping pieces of torn skin).
    Russia does not yet have a helicopter in this class - the Mi-38 has a payload half as much, and the Mi-26 one and a half / two times more ... (its serial peer and classmate Mi - 6 have sunk into oblivion).
    For "Apaches" - a proven control system, modern SDs, a life cycle support system. All this is just now starting to promote to the market, together with new technology.
    I do not see India's "sins" in the results of this tender.
