The submarine of the class Scorpene, built in India, completed the first test exit to the sea, reports RIA News message of the Indian Defense Ministry.




“The submarine first sailed (Saturday) on its own propulsion system off the coast of Mumbai around 10 in the morning. A series of tests of the engine, auxiliary equipment and systems, navigation equipment, communication equipment and steering was carried out, ”the report says.

In the evening, DEPL returned to the port. "In the next few months, the submarine will continue to undergo sea trials, dive tests, and weapons tests," the release says.

“Later this year, the submarine Calvari will be put into service with the Indian Navy,” the release said.

The construction of submarines of this class (there will be six in total) is carried out with the participation of DCNS (France). In the future, the transfer of technology to the Indian side.

Calvari, the first submarine of the project, was built at the Indian shipyard Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders in Mumbai. Other 5 submarines of the Scorpene class will also be built there.

    If it was a completely national development, it made sense to shout and rejoice. The French transferred the technology by which they build submarines

      They will gain experience and be able to develop their own, there would be a desire and means. At one time, despite the experience of building submarines in Russia and the USSR, the 613 project submarine (the first post-war series) was built on the technology of the German 21 series, at the end of the war, the most advanced submarine in terms of innovation. Many did not even suspect this, even from among the crews. I still found them in the fleet, the 25th brigade in Kronstadt was equipped with these boats. By the way, the largest series in the history of our fleet is 215 units.

          If Indian engineers are like programmers, they won't go anywhere. I have had the dubious pleasure of associating with turkeys for many years and therefore have an idea of ​​their "professional". And their recent "successful" projects, such as the Arjun tank and the Tejas fighter, show their great potential. Well, well, let them play "national development", in the end they will still buy from those who really have the knowledge and experience.

              for the price that "effective managers" usually want to pay. A graduate of an American university, fresh, without a day of experience, is unlikely to go for a salary of $ 30k, and a turkey with 3-5 years of experience (well, really Indian) will cling to it, if in addition they give a work visa, and 4 years in this position will be paid for this money like a bobby. True, having received a green card and 4 years of real American experience, he immediately starts looking for where to pay more.
              But they have such a problem. They solve standard tasks standardly and quickly, even I, with my experience and certification, will not catch up with them. But as something non-standard, or for some reason, standard solutions do not work well, they either shut up completely, or write one so that you can rewrite it later in your mind, I had to do it more than once. Non-standard tasks are met regularly, even in the most simple projects.

    I wonder how this conveyor is controlled, and what kind of drive does it have? By the way, he seems to be in France.
    Was it really difficult to find photos from Indian shipyards?

      The control panel lies on top of the right hitch. the first two are power plants on the right and left side of the coupling, horizontal movement in any direction, vertical movement (I don’t know which model specifically) is at least 75 cm. This is a heavy weight transporter, one coupling on five axles weighs 26 tons.

    Good French boat with a high degree of automation. The crew is only 31 people with a displacement of 1650 surface. Low noise, power reserve - everything is fine. Only waterproof compartments are few. If that - all Khan. Dangerous and far reaching weapon, given the speed and autonomy.

      So a large number of compartments is not a panacea, more, less does not matter, if you cover any submarine where the depth is up to a thousand meters and higher, then the end is unambiguous, but in wartime, who will allow the enemy to save the crew?

    and at this time
    GOP presidential contender Donald Trump at a rally in Indiana criticized China's trade policy.
    According to him, China has committed "the largest theft in world history." “We can no longer allow China to rape our country,” Trump said.
    Trump has previously accused China of underestimating the renminbi to make its goods cheaper and more attractive in global markets. According to him, the policy of the Chinese authorities destroys American business and destroys jobs.
    Trump promised to force the Chinese authorities to abandon this practice. As part of his election campaign, the billionaire promises to conclude deals with China on the best terms. He is also going to declare China a “currency manipulator” and force the country's authorities to abandon export subsidies.
    The billionaire first applied the word “rape” to China’s economic policies. Trump's harsh statements have already led to protests in California last week. Because of protests on Friday, Trump was unable to get into the building where the GOP meeting was taking place.
    Many experts and analysts acknowledge that China has artificially lowered the renminbi for many years. This helped the country artificially increase its share of the world market: thanks to the lower yuan exchange rate and export subsidies, Chinese goods were cheaper than competitors. This policy has created many imbalances both in the global economy and in the Chinese. For many years, the IMF has called on China to abandon exchange rate regulation.
    Since the beginning of the year, the People's Bank of China has been gradually depreciating the renminbi. Some experts blame the country for yet another attempt to manipulate the exchange rate in order to support exports. But there is an opposite point of view: some economists are waiting for the devaluation of the yuan against the backdrop of the internal economic crisis in the country.

    A little from us, a little from the French ... That's right. A good cook takes all the best from national cuisines. Another question is that the cook needs more experience and skill. But it will come with time.

    Interest in French submarines increased dramatically when they began to offer, "in one package", new and highly advanced MdCN cruise missiles with a range of at least 1000 km. fired from standard torpedo tubes. $ 2.5 million apiece, but what a problem for India to buy a hundred pieces in the future ...

      One, but very weighty, is the Agreement on limiting the spread of missile technologies. If they buy it, then the range of the rocket will be 300 km.

        At one time, in many countries, the sale of short-barreled revolvers was banned, they were considered a bandit weapon, although they were very convenient for self-defense for the same reason - they easily fit in your pocket. The British company Webley released the popular at that time "bulldog" with an elongated barrel and a front sight in the middle of the barrel. Buyers carried the revolver to the nearest workshop, where the barrel was shortened to the front sight for an inexpensive price.
        So the French will sell with a range of 300, and the buyers will "upgrade" to 1000 on the spot. Everyone is happy and the agreement has been respected.

          RAvet is not a revolver.
          1. The guidance system. A missile may simply not hit such a distance. All kinds of blockers and firmware will not work.
          2. If you try to strike at a distance of more than 300 km, self-destructor will work.
          3. When an unauthorized access to the electronic system of a rocket is attempted, its physical destruction will occur - a rocket to the scrap.
          This is so ... on the vantage that I remembered from the lecture)))

            And it depends on what the seller wants more. If you comply with the agreement not only in letter, but also in spirit, then there will be blockers, firmware, self-liquidators, and what else. And if he wants to raise the dough, then, as they say, options are possible.

    Yes, 613 was made from a stencil of 21 series, but there was also an unsuccessful copy from 22 (Walter's boat), it seems 616? however. I could be wrong! As for the French - "handsome" not only with the Indian order, but also with the Australian! However, the "dish" for an amateur - Swedish boats are better - in a face-to-face duel in Mediterranean, they "made" the Spaniards 212, and the French, and even the Americans on the famous submarine fighter "sea wolf"? Such a confusion ?!

      From the very beginning of the tender, the Australians needed "large" boats with the appropriate ocean characteristics, the Swedes fell away immediately. Slightly reduced, 5100-ton nuclear "Barracuda", what they need, (even the Germans admit on the forums), but as the Australian media write, the final choice became possible after the Memorandum with the Americans and the British that they are ready to integrate their combat systems and weapons into French the project is subject to construction in Australia, not in France ... The French on water and under water are now on horseback. What does it mean 2 \ 3 shares of DCNS with the state, the corresponding subsidies and polit. support...
