Media: India asks Moscow to lease the second submarine

74
On Wednesday, a telephone conversation took place between Sergei Shoigu and Indian Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar, during which issues of military-technical cooperation were discussed. The parties will also have to decide on the transfer of the second nuclear submarine to the Indian Navy. Kommersant.




“Kommersant” reminds that in 2012 r the Indian fleet leased a nuclear submarine of the 971 project, which it called Chakra.

The possibility of renting a second submarine for 10 years is currently under discussion. This question "was raised in the middle of December 2015 of the year, during the visit of the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi to Moscow at the highest level, but it was not possible to agree quickly: technical disagreements affected," the source said. The next round of talks should take place in April.

The problem is that the Indians have chosen to rent a submarine project 885 "Ash". The Russian side opposed.

“There were a number of reasons for this,” said the top manager of the shipbuilding industry. - First, the first head submarine was adopted by the Russian Navy only in 2014 year and is still the only one of its kind. Secondly, the Russian, Russian Navy submarines Kazan, Novosibirsk and Krasnoyarsk impose special tasks related to ensuring national security on the Sevmash submarines, and no one is going to open access to their technologies. ”

Finally, according to the interlocutor, “the question rests on the price: if the leasing of the 971 nuclear submarine of the project was estimated at $ 785 million, the rent of Yasen, based on its characteristics, will be much more expensive for India”.

According to Kommersant’s information, the Russian negotiators intend to make a different offer to their Indian partners: to rent another NPS from the 971 project.

2 options are considered here: “either withdrawing a submarine from the Russian Navy with subsequent modernization to customer requirements at the Zvezdochka plant in Severodvinsk, or completing the hull preserved at the Amur shipbuilding plant from Soviet times,” the source told the newspaper.

According to him, “the final decision should be expected no earlier than 2017 of the year: by this time, India will have to respond to Russian proposals.”

        So the whole fleet can be rented?
        And why is it actually being built?
        The country's defense is somehow not keeping up with liberal values.
        The bureaucrats dough cut down in an easy way.
        The media will explain to us that it is beneficial for all residents.

        If the Indians ask for rent, then our bureaucrats have given a reason to discuss this option of "cooperation".

          Hindus well done. Wise and far-sighted politics.
          For all their shortcomings, they are quite sure what they want.

          Apparently, they are determined to build a second Arihant-class nuclear submarine and are preparing the crew in advance. Or maybe their plans go even further.
          Then it’s quite possible to complete the building and just sell it, and not rent it out.
          This seems to me a very good solution for both sides.

          As for the decline in our defenses, this is not worth fearing. Moreover, we are taking much more costly foreign policy steps with much less results than strategic linking to ourselves of a country with a billion people.

            Nobody will return anything - the boat is leased. This is a lease with a buyout.
            Here is the option with completion, in my opinion, very attractive. But getting a ship out of the fleet is a bad idea.

Not so long ago, the top officials of the state "kicked themselves in the chest" that there would be no deliveries of S-400 and Su-35S abroad until their own armed forces were fully saturated with them and more advanced models were not put into mass production. And what, the S-400 and Su-35S have been delivered in sufficient quantities, while the S-500 and PAK FA are being built in series? However, the contract for the supply of S-400 and Su-35S to the PRC has already been signed. negative

          As far as I know, the contract has been signed, but it still needs ratification. So far, yes, there will be a S-500, and the SU-50 will go into production. And selling yesterday is very profitable. Moreover, the Chinese do not know where this weapon has a "button" that can be used to turn it off at the right time. In addition, other surprises can be hidden in the electronic filling, from espionage to self-destruction.

            Blessed is he who believes No. There are no "buttons", leave these conspiracy theories for other resources. Moreover, the Chinese are planning to buy Su-35S and S-400 in very small quantities, I think everyone understands why. As for the T-50 and S-500, can you say when they will start entering the troops? moreover, by and large, the replacement of the S-400 is not expected. The S-500 is more of an anti-missile system for dealing with satellites in low orbits.

        > And giving one of the built submarines of this project is an extreme degree of stupidity

        Not so simple.
        if in this way the Indians would become attached to the Russian military-industrial complex and guarantee the safety of technologies, then it would be quite possible to consider the option with "Ash", because in the field of aviation, the Russian Federation is not afraid to transfer its most modern technologies to the Indians - the technologies of the fifth generation aircraft will be transferred to the Indians over time ...
        The Russian Federation cannot build the same "Ash trees" in the amount of 30, which is too expensive for the country, and the transfer of modern technologies to an ally, with whom the absence of strategic differences is declared, is a kind of option for scaling ash trees up to 30. But in any case, the question should be posed differently - is it all Ash's technologies should be passed on, because we are talking about both strikes on the shore and about "Calibers", because "Ash" is not a simple hunter for enemy submarines.
        Those there is a lack of coverage of the conceptual sphere of disagreementIt’s not clear what kind of combat capabilities the Russian Federation agrees to give to India, which not

    Since that is the case, it is preferable to complete the building in Komsomolsk-on-Amur. And the case does not need to be disposed of and new equipment installed is still easier to remodel than to remodel the old one. Although it will not do without alterations here. And the 885 project itself is needed . The fleet, especially the Pacific Fleet, needs to update the ships. Japan abruptly set about updating its fleet, against whom it is not clear. Maybe against the PRC, and maybe against the Russian Federation.

          Hi Nikolay! The case is of course in good condition. The Nerpa for India was being completed according to a simplified version of the equipment. Everything that was possible was changed, but the comfort for the crew was improved. The management of the plant stole a lot on this order, but the workers also had good earnings. The fact is that now in Komsomolsk there are not so many specialists who know the equipment of nuclear submarines.

      Well, at least because they do not need a strategist but a multi-purpose nuclear submarine ...

    The Premier League is a serious tool of strategic dominance. Is it something that has collapsed from oak? Even for one such interest, it is necessary to begin to reconsider relations with the so-called partner. Gentlemen Indians in general than explain the need for super-tech nuclear submarines? It smacks of industrial espionage at the interstate level! It is clear that with the Russian equipment of the boat no one will provide, but nevertheless, there will be something to study.

    Enough for the Indians and one. All new boats are part of our Navy!

    don’t worry, no one will lease new boats, the most interesting thing is that the rental scheme of our nuclear power plants has existed since the Soviet era (the Indians rented a 670 ave., at that time not the most outdated)

    Perhaps it was just that the slonder was boiling :)) The guys at the top, I would hope that if they practice such leases, it’s not to the detriment of the country's defense and technology. And if they make money from this, then wisely ... I repeat - I would like to hope (because there are so many evil spirits now in the departments).

    Regarding the fact that they already have one, this is understandable. She also meant it.

    Russian crooks and liberals need to be leased to Indians so that they are tested in all places.

    We have built "Arihant", so let them continue building, even with our technical assistance. But squandering submarines, which themselves have nothing at all, can only be full of submarines. and. l. s.
    Collectors are figs.
    Decommissioned from sedimentation tanks to upgrade, at their expense is still somehow acceptable

    Well, they said that in India they created a 3D printer, which, when loading composite materials into it, prints the PL series (hemp) like seeds. However, I’m lying. It’s better to get from Russian steel.!

    I don’t believe in the sincerity of the Maharajas, the Hindus have been walking under the Anglo-Saxons for so many years, and now they worship all English, push them together, I remember the story of our Vladimir, business business, and you should not squander your military technology, it’s not Gazprom, it’s really public property, the more leasing ...

    You read such messages and it immediately seems that we simply have an excess of nuclear submarines. So not only that, the Indians are still asking for almost the latest developments. Wisely invented. I wonder what they will eventually agree on.
