    For India, it may even be built, but Russia, taking into account the latest miscarriages of France along the Mistrals, needs to rely only on its shipbuilding.

      Well, he has 32 Baraka-8, it's like a Redoubt - 90km range, good channel and the probability of defeat.

      Plus two helicopters.

      Yes, and this is a ship of the far sea zone.

      In fact, it is necessary to equal it with 11356 - it is larger, but on the whole more powerful and much more advanced on RTV. On the other hand, twice as many shock missiles, two air defense circuits, etc. But the Indians may not need to overload the ship with weapons, this is also not very good.

      If you compare with FREMM (the best heavy frigate today) - then there is almost all parity. Therefore, in vain, the ship is quite good.

    If this happens, this is bad news for us. We have been building ships of the Indian Navy for more than a year and this is like our market, our niche. If the Italians crawl there, then we will have to make room. Or offer something cooler. And the steeper can only be something solid and what not everyone can offer. I mean the export version of the aircraft carrier 23000E "Storm". On this subject wrote an article on the forum

    hhem / To whom it is interesting to read. I’ll add from myself that the arms market is shrinking and competition is growing - you need not just to maintain your positions, but to crowd out competitors on all fronts. I hope nothing shines in pasta in India.

      In fact, Italians are strong competitors in the field of shipbuilding.
      The ships and ships they make are good.
      And to keep this market, you need to try hard.

        Italian shipbuilders are rednecks and traders, by the way, with the Indians, they are facing each other.
        In Italy, there were several high-profile cases of raising prices, not meeting deadlines and their quality is not important. The only thing they can do is interior decoration.

      Well, can we, this is also a question, because for ourselves we haven’t built it from 0 on the territory of modern Russia. This "aircraft carrier" can not even be called a project - there is no documentation. One layout and a big name. It is unlikely that the Indians will communicate. hi

    What’s oceanic - it’s clear that around India there’s just the ocean. The armament for such a large trough is weak. Maybe I don’t understand something, but like a frigate air defense. Mumbai cover?

    you can minus it ... but the Indians act on the principle that horseradish is thicker in the wrong hands .. They can’t build their own in spite of any “do in India” programs. my word is, here they’ll be with bags of money .. yes they buy a lot from us but you don’t have to kiss them because of this .. you have to trade more actively with other countries .. what

    “The Italians will conduct a detailed study of the frigate’s project, optimize it, and introduce the principle of modularity and integration into it. Training and assistance programs are provided at every stage of the program, from design to transfer to the customer. ”


    Italians have always been good shipbuilders and it is not naive to rate them as competitors. And the Indians have always sought to expand the circle of arms suppliers. And I must admit, in terms of "numbers" in the CIUS and other weapons integration systems, the Italians are ahead of us, we like it, colleagues, or we don’t like it, but unfortunately it is. hi

    Italians are sometimes called unrecognized geniuses of naval technology! There are plenty of historical examples!

    That is the reason a reasonable approach. “Our leaders” should also instead of a stupid purchase of the Mistral, with which then the “partners” easily threw us, to demand from the French the re-equipment of the shipyard “to introduce modern principles and practices in the field of design and construction on them”. I think everyone on the Mistral wouldn’t care if they got at least one modern shipyard.
