USC is ready to complete the construction of the 11356 frigates in the interests of the Indian Navy

59
The USC does not exclude the possibility of supplying India with three 11356 project ships, which are currently under construction at the Yantar plant in Kaliningrad, reports Flotprom with reference to the head of the shipbuilding corporation Alexey Rakhmanov.




“We are so open to all projects of the development of military-technical cooperation, that if India has such an interest, we will be happy to work with them”- said Rakhmanov.

Earlier, India’s interest in acquiring frigates was announced by the republic’s ambassador to the Russian Federation, Pundi Raghavan. According to him, "India will be able to solve the problem with the supply of Ukrainian engines," due to the lack of which the construction of ships was postponed to 2020.

Frigate of the Indian Navy "Tarkash", built at the Kaliningrad plant "Yantar"

Now the Indian Navy has 6 frigates of the Talwar type, built at Russian shipyards according to an earlier project. The first 3 ships were delivered under the contract 1997 g (cost about $ 1 billion), the other three - by agreement of 2006 g (cost about $ 1,6 billion). The second contract was fully executed in 2013.

    It is necessary to solve the question of where to buy engines, while there are none.
    ... and not to whom to sell ships ... for 20 years a pancake was sold
    And he is suing for engines with brother-hohlov since it has long been paid for them, but for some reason everyone is silent about it ..... some kind of madhouse!

      Well, yes.
      The key question in the article is whether India is ready to buy ships that we are ready to do.
      Alas, plans and reality are not always in one package.

        It was not worth making an advance payment for turbines on ships. It was not necessary to make an advance payment for engines for helicopters. It was not necessary to recapitalize our banks in Ukraine.

      To sue is rotten. Just before 2020, and we will. If there is an opportunity to throw off the “boxes” with profit, you need to fold and build on your engines and faster.

      For the Indians, the engines will be installed. In principle, of course, the completion of the second triple 11356 for India is a good option. We started to build 11356 because they could be built much faster than 22350, which are planned by the main frigates. And since the engines will appear no earlier than 2017 (at best), then speed will not work and even if the second three are launched, then it will wait for the GTA.
      So you can finish building the second triple 11356 for the Indians and lay 22350 for yourself, which will be launched when the GTA from Saturn is already there. Although in any case, if the Black Sea Fleet receives 3 frigates instead of 6, this is sadness, but this is life - little is happening as planned. request

        Now the frigates for our fleet have slowed down to 2020, at least. If you give These ugly Indians, the new ones will go into operation no earlier than 2023. Our leaders have no brains at all. Corrupted their arms sales. All is small and small.

      It is necessary to resolve the issue

      It would be interesting to hear an opinion Specialist, find out: is it possible to install a power plant from, say, six marine70 gas turbine engines of the E8 / XNUMXRD type already mastered on Saturn, on the data of the TFR (frigates). Or a combination of diesel engines and these gas turbine engines?
      Complicated? Probably...
      But even on "pocket battleships" such as "Deutschland" the screws rotated eight diesels and this was not in the 21st century, but 80 years ago.

      In the world at the moment, turbines of the required power are produced by 3 companies:
      Rolls-Royce - very good units, put mainly on European and LA ships, not only military, but also civilian.
      General Electric is a legendary series, Hindus buy for example, the Chinese bought an old 2500, but they did not sell the production to them.
      Zorya-Mashproekt.

      All other manufacturers (in China, Russia, Japan) - depend on external supplies and cooperation with the three enterprises above.

          Mikhan don’t be indignant! The whole problem is not in the engines, the whole problem is in the gearboxes. But to buy such equipment for the production of gearboxes is a problem. And even taking into account the sanctions. MTU also incurs losses on diesels. Because the diesels for the fleet have our patented decisions that the company cannot get around and it turns out that due to sanctions the company incurs losses not only on deliveries to Russia, but also on other deliveries, as the arbitration court did not satisfy MTU’s claim for canceling patents. But with diesel engines it’s easier, since type D diesel engines -49 from the very beginning were created as multi-purpose. With gearboxes worse. So how to purchase and install equipment for the production of gearboxes there will be their own engines. The problem is complex and it is necessary for everyone who is falling apart and continues to break up our heavy industry to shoot without the right to appeal. As Enemies of the people.

        In something you are right. but mostly not. Tell me how many wars were after 1945? Many! How many of them are nuclear? Not a single one. And nuclear weapons will not help here. You will not use Poplar against poachers. It’s more expensive. But there are not enough carriers of conventional weapons at sea. And to protect the Northern Sea Route you need not only icebreakers, but ordinary watchmen and frigates. And you also need to protect the shelf from lovers of someone else's good. Look like the Japanese clung to the Kuril Islands. There is also no need for nuclear weapons, but a conventional one, or rather a fleet. Unfortunately sea ​​aki on dry land can walk only Jesus Christ.

      Obviously, we are talking about the sale of ships without engines, which Ukrainians "squeezed" us. India buys hulls from us, engines from Ukrainians. Collects all this to the heap and gets 3 combat units into his asset. When we ourselves will begin the release of the GEM for frigates of this type (and not only) is not yet clear. Due to sanctions, the geyropeytsy also hook our faces. So, these ships hovered like a suitcase without a handle. By the time the engines go into production, the 11356 project will be slightly outdated. So, I completely admit the possibility of selling them to a friendly state. Well, or it remains to urgently resolve the issue with the engines.

      Once again and slowly. Until 2018, the "second three" 11356 power plants will not receive. And the fleet will not receive these ships until 2018 either. They will simply stand at the factory wall - for Russia no one has a gas turbine.
      If you sell the "second three" to the Indians, then by 2018 it is quite possible to have time to build them a replacement for domestic engines. As a result:
      - the plant does not spend money on maintaining the "presentation" of ships,
      - the state receives money for the export of FR, which for the next 3 years would be a "dead load",
      - for the proceeds money it will be possible to order the "third three" 11356 for the domestic fleet or lay it on Yantar Ave. 22350.

          If you build 11356, then you can focus on Makarov: laid down on 29.02.2012, launched on 02.09.2015. We are quite in time, especially since by the time of installation of the power plant the ship should still be on the slipway.

          Nuclear submarines in the USSR were riveted in 9-10 months, and missile carriers of the 667 series. In tsarist Russia, Novik-type destroyers were built from 12 to 18 months. Have we really lost our skill and ability? I don’t believe. And why the production of power plants had to be located in Nikolaev, not in St. Petersburg or Severodvinsk? After all, they were already burned more than once with the Nikolaev plants.

            The Chinese have no production. QC-280 is an assembly of GT-25000 components from Nikolaev.

            Either the option purchased by GE-2500, or a limited series assembled on the basis of GE-2500 units. That is, they are dependent either on Dawn, or on General Electric.

        I’m misunderstanding something .. what If the Indians want to buy these frigates from us, then can they make engines? Or are they going to buy them from another country (from the forelock)? If they can build engines, then why don't we order the Indians to build these engines?

          Yes

          India will be able to solve the problem with the supply of Ukrainian engines, due to the lack of which the construction of ships was postponed until 2020

          Apparently, Ukrainians will sell them confiscated engines from the party we ordered.

          They do not build these engines. EMNIP, there are only 4 “unlimited licenses” for shipbuilding gas turbine manufacturers: Rolls-Royce, General Electric, Zorya-Mashproekt and Saturn. The rest are licensed and severely limited in distribution of products.

        Why not sail? This is you in vain! Everything would go to complete the task.

    Mistral to the left, frigates to the right, well done USC! Work well!
    And what do we have in the Black Sea Fleet? Some toothless watchdogs from the time of the construction of Khrushchev and Leonid Ilyich run and scare the Americans!
    Now here is the whole 30 division of the Black Sea Fleet in tension, everyone is gone. They need new blood there, urgently, and not left and right to sell ships that were originally intended for our fleet!

    In Ukraine, probably rubbing their hands, such luck, one and the same engines to sell to two states at once. The engines are paid, let them return the money.

    "India will be able to solve the problem with the supply of Ukrainian engines", due to the lack of which the construction of ships was postponed until 2020.
    About two months ago I wrote about this. I just wrote that they would put it on the wall, such as the slipways would be released, since there were no engines. So I got the minuses of 10-15 pieces. and like I'm wrong to the fullest.
    So apparently they thought up there and decided it was better to sell, without engines, than to leave rusting. So at least shipbuilders will receive money and continue their work. And for minuvshshikov I can advise, think not with your back mind, but with real. Good luck.

    USC is ready to complete the construction of the 11356 frigates in the interests of the Indian Navy
    One feels that the Zelenodolsk plant will be puffed out for everyone until they start building their engines. Who has information on the further saturation of the Russian fleet with warships during this transition period?

      Unfortunately, you are right. USC at this stage of production of its engines (projects, plans and development) there is nothing left but to make a good “mine” in a bad game and engage in boltology. And it is painful to find options. Up to the sale "in the bud." But I believe and really, really hope that the situation can change radically when bidding for Syria is held among the "adults" and the US sheep will merry Ukrainians with offal for the sake of keeping their faces in the mix, and they will sing completely different songs.

    Thank God that even in the construction of new submarines we are not tied to spare parts from the "fraternal" republics, it was just like in a surface fleet where old ships still rescue us.
    Russia has big problems with the surface fleet and if they are not started to be solved in the coming years, then it will be able to operate only in our coastal waters.
    Some kind of hopelessness

    1) New quickly unable to build
    2) The term of operation in the ranks of ships is coming to an end
    3) We cut "on needles" the strong hulls of ships in the marine and distant oceanic zones that are in storage.

    We won’t see any glimmers of hope if we have been building one 11-year BDK for the surface fleet.

    Yes, the situation is deplorable, at this rate of import substitution, updating the Russian Navy by 70% by 2020 is hardly possible. It's a pity!

    The US and Russia are currently waging an active war in the financial field, so the sale of these frigates to India will be a necessary measure and a blow to US ambitions.
