DN: The Ministry of Defense of India decided on its own to modernize the Soviet air defense system

31
The Indian command instructed the country's air force to modernize the Soviet Pechora air defense system with the help of domestic defense companies, without resorting to the services of foreign companies, reports RIA News message resource Defense News.




“In May, the Indian Air Force announced a $ 272 million tender to install digital display systems on 16 Pechora air defense systems. Bids have been sent to several Indian military-industrial companies, including Tata Power SED, Larsen & Toubro, Reliance Defense Engineering, Offset India Solutions, Mahindra Defense Systems, Bharat Electronics and Bharat Dynamics, ”the portal writes.

Such a decision was made as part of the “Make in India” policy pursued by the current government.

According to retired Marshal of the Indian Air Force Daljit Singh, “The modernization mainly involves the use of a digital information display system, an improved communication system and the affected area, deployment and networking.”

However, “Indian companies are still unable to make the appropriate changes themselves,” so technical cooperation with foreign specialists will still be established, citing the source of the word of its source in the military department.

"As for the missiles deployed on the air defense missile system, they do not need modifications and can be built by defense enterprises in India itself," - added the source.

The portal states that “the winning company must upgrade its air defense system for 42 a month after signing the contract”.

      hmm ... but how can they improve the affected area without modifying the rocket?
      Well, probably you can somehow correct the algorithms for capturing the target and outputting to the interception course - but not the fact that it will give a lot, and this is quite a difficult job.

        Even if they already sign a modernization contract, they will wait for it to be completed according to the plan until 2020. Is it worth it?

        For example, the Buk M3 land has a destruction range of 70 km. The same rocket on the marine version flies only 50 km. The difference is due to the detection and guidance system. Something like this. hi

          The marine version of Buk has been modified for a vertical launch. At a minimum, orientation motors in a given direction have been added. Maybe this is the reason?

      I think they will. Indians are consistent in their actions. It is not for nothing that their arms market is considered very complex and competitive. In most cases, the Indians try to "squeeze" the main technologies from the seller in addition to the final product. hi

      All of the above practically does not apply to the rocket itself. Just an improved graphical shell that facilitates the work of the operator. As windows came up with for ms-dos ;-) Hindus, by the way, are very powerful programmers.

    These are modernizing ... I already wrote that our company has been cooperating with the Indians in the oil and gas industry for many years. The level of technical education among the Indians is below the plinth. Against them, Iranians are real professors yes . I do not think that in the military-industrial complex the picture is very different from the oil industry and gas. I'm talking about the trend. and not about individual manifestations of talent ... Although ... everything can be. Maybe I'm slandering them .... what

        According to Sushki, the pomnitsa, it got to the point that their Minister of Defense publicly began to complain about the quality of the products of the Indian engine manufacturer and about their own rear structures:
        At the same time, according to the Minister of Defense, the Indian Air Force already had five accidents and 69 incidents with AL-31FP engines manufactured by HAL since 2012. According to Parricar, out of these 69 incidents, 33 were caused by chips in the oil, 11 caused vibration in the engine, and eight were due to very low pressure in the oil supply. Accusations were made regarding the poor quality of the assembly, as a result of which the fatigue effect quickly occurred, causing cracks, which led to the appearance of metal fragments and the oil circuit. The investigation also drew attention to the quality of the oil. By order of the Indian Ministry of Defense, measures have been taken: the use of better quality oil, the alteration and replacement of welding and mounting components between the mechanical parts.

    It will help if a clause has been prescribed in the contract for the supply of air defense systems that allows the buyer (the right-purchaser) to carry out modernization. Otherwise, we lose money, but do we need it?

    I think that the Indians will be ruined, they will be ruined with their modernization, and then they will come to bow back to the manufacturers. I do not understand the essence of the request for modernization of Indian enterprises. What is this - the desire to save money in the country? But "272 million dollars for the installation of digital information display systems at 16 air defense systems "Pechora" for 42 (!) Months not so much money. The desire to thereby raise their high-tech companies? I do not know. I would be careful not to risk the dome over my country, which borders on a clearly unfriendly state with nuclear weapons in service. It is unlikely, of course, that Pakistan will bomb a vigorous bomb in India, but still, all the same ..

    The Pechora-2M air defense system includes: SNR S-125-2M anti-aircraft missile guidance radar (UNK-2M control cabin and UNV-2M antenna post mounted on a car chassis), up to 8 5P73-2M self-propelled launchers with 2 rails, up to 8 TZM-based vehicles Ural-4210 or ZiL-131, SAM 5V27U, 5V27D, 5V27DE, as well as the power supply system (5E96A diesel power station and distribution cabin RCU-N). Additionally, a mobile repair shop, cable manager KU-03T with a set of cables, as well as a complex of radio-technical protection equipment (KRTZ-125-2M) can be introduced into the complex

    Interestingly, did the Indians all intend to modernize or only partially?

    Flag in hand. Practice suggests that such experiments often end in vain. If everything was so simple, then there would be big problems with the sale of modernized equipment. It seems to me that after 42 months the Indians will turn to us for help.

    Well, this is not modernization, but the production of a new product using components that have significant operating time and service life. In the arms trade, one must clearly understand that China, India and Iran are only interested in developing their technological base, including through copying and overproduction. Hence all the problems.
