India canceled the contract for the supply of torpedoes for submarines "Scorpion"

24
The Indian Defense Ministry annulled the contract with the Italian company WASS for the supply of Black Shark torpedoes 98 for the Scorpen french submarines under construction. This decision was made because of the corruption scandal associated with the purchase contract for the Indian Air Force 12-AW helicopters AW-101. WASS is a structural division of the Leonardo-Finmeccanica industrial group, which is directly involved in this scandal, according to TSAMTO.




The head of the Ministry of Defense of India Parrikar has already sent to the Navy an alternative list of torpedoes that can be purchased for submarines.

“The head submarine of the series, Calvary, is currently undergoing sea trials. The transfer of its Indian Navy is scheduled for the end of the year. The remaining five submarines are being built at the enterprise of the company Mazagon Doc Limited in Mumbai under a contract worth 236,52 billion rupees (3,56 billion dollars). All six non-nuclear submarines are supposed to be transferred to the Indian Navy by 2020, ”the newspaper notes.

According to the Navy command, it will take about 3's to supply alternative torpedoes. "In addition, for the application of alternative torpedoes, it will be necessary to make changes to the design of the submarines and the fire control system," the article says.

Until the issue with torpedoes is resolved, the submarines will be armed only with anti-ship missiles SM-39.

    Did you find corruption in Geyrop? In such an approximate and unbending region in the fight against Russian kickbacks? What a passage!

      Under this article, something I remembered, the conflict between Argentina and Great Britain (the Falkland Islands, the article was here) More than half of the bombs and torpedoes purchased by Argentina from the United States turned out to be defective or specially disabled ... Otherwise, the Britov fleet would have suffered serious losses! Think Indians ... hi

      Well, with corruption, especially in the defense industry, Europe is in no way inferior to the leader - the United States. Ours never dreamed of laughing
      As for the essence, the Indians, too, are still the buyers ... You understand the East: "they don't ... love, they'll torture you so much" laughing
      Recently, I read the review on this topic. If memory fails - in line for the supply of torpedoes, the Germans and ours were still hi

        Rather, the problem is not that the Italians gave it to someone, but that they didn’t give it to someone else, or they didn’t agree on the amount. The word "baksheesh" seems to be of the most Indian origin, and without it, things are not done there. Mark my word, they will come to an agreement, they will give anyone what they owe, and they will conclude a new contract.

        I don’t know, maybe I’m wrong, but Russia always had torpedoes of the same caliber 533mm. Will they fit NATO standards? Or change all the torpedo tubes, the headache is still that. Frankly, I do not understand the Hindus. Weapons are being bought all over the world, and from anyone without hitting them. If there are thousands of different standards and calibers in military equipment and weapons, will this not affect the combat effectiveness of all the armed forces? Or are they buying technology in this way?

          No, from the beginning of the 70s, a caliber of 650 mm has been actively used. These are torpedoes, for example:
          https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/Торпеда_«Кит»
          All modern submarines have 650 mm torpedo tubes:

          And why do Indians buy everything in a row - because there is none of their own. RI at the beginning of the 20th century also bought up any weapons from everyone who was ready to sell it. One rifle caliber was emnip, 6, which led to a constant shortage of the necessary cartridges.

      This is a common story with Indian orders, but not all bribes in Europe pay attention. Another bargaining from Europe, which is still unclear from India .............

      Come on Europe. But India is unbending, principled. Let everyone get used to it, and those and these to joint business.

    The Hindus are doing great stupidity with all these "Western" weapons. It will not fire at the right moment, the West always betrays the "oborigens". Only fools do not understand this. Corrupt politicians ... Does anyone know a cure for them?

    Italians simply turned out to be unsuccessful corrupt officials. They need to learn from the Americans.

      They rush about like children in the "children's mir" shop .... We in Russia sell serious weapons (not as shiny and bright as in the west ..), but in battle they will be reliable and easy to use! And most importantly, Russia gives a guarantee for all... hi

      Well, there their theorists developed the principle: many suppliers, fewer risks.
      Tomorrow we can fall not under snotty sanctions, but under WORLD or even go to the 3rd World War, and neutral India will remain unarmed. Fearfully. And stupid.

    And who ever saw an honest market?
    No wonder Mercury was the patron of not only trade .... but also scammers.
    Both here and they, everyone who trades, wants to make a profit. A corrupt official is called only when someone has not shared with someone. Or did not have time to agree.
