Russia and India intend to create a joint venture for the production of ACS


“Our Indian partners have extensive experience working with the Ministry of Defense. We have extensive experience and expertise in the creation of self-propelled artillery. We are planning to gradually transfer documentation in the framework of our Make in India program in order to jointly perform the installation, ”
Sienko said at the Innoprom-2016 exhibition.

According to him, “the assembly production will be only the first stage of cooperation on the creation of ACS, the production of which is now carried out at Uraltransmash (part of the UVZ).”

Currently, within the framework of a tender announced by India for the purchase of self-propelled artillery, Russian SAU 2C19 "MSTA-S" South Korean K9 Thunder are competing.

According to Lenti.ru, “in total, India intends to spend 10 billion dollars in the next 2,4 years to buy 814 artillery systems, of which 100 will be purchased abroad (with the 50 assembly in India) ".

      We only sell export options, and they differ significantly from those that we have in service.

      The coalition has not been adopted yet in Russia. Yes, and it will be bold

      I’m wanging that this is just for the seed of the Indians about Mstu now say. Interested in them, of course, the Coalition. Then they will start to whine about her.

        And I’m wanging that, as a result, the Indians will buy our self-propelled gun system (our development is just ending)

        And so for the eyes, those still frames. Let them improve themselves that they can. What the Indians got to, the next day in the London newspapers, down to the one who farted while measuring the last bolt on a typewriter, when compiling a set of drawings and an explanatory note, I exaggerate if wassat

      They do not order, but contribute to the competition.

    The Indians seemed to be trying to make "Yourself - with a mustache", they released a 155 mm howitzer, like the USA and Europe ... what

      K9 is a serious competitor, plus it is going to Turkey, gradually increasing localization, which may also be a plus for India (that is, development is simple).

      Russia has big problems with its technologies in India with MIG-29K / KUB and Vikramaditya (with the timing and "divine" prices for it, I think many are familiar). Indians (Hindus live in the next doorway) are very unhappy. But since this is not an article from a bespontov American railgun and the F-35 with its "numerous" problems, no one at VO will discuss it. This is not the US national debt.
      Do you need to translate or do you master through Google translate?
      There are still a number of problems with India's Russian-built Mikoyan MiG-29K / KUB aircraft, as well as with the aircraft carrier formerly known as Admiral Gorshkov that entered Indian Navy service in 2013, sources in India have told IHS Jane's.

      The complaints about the MiG-29K / KUB aircraft are generally due to the inability of the Russian firm RSK-MiG to deliver a complete aircraft that incorporates all of the features promised in the contractual documents signed by both parties.

      Indian experts who have visited the test base at Goa, where flight training with the aircraft is conducted, report that the MiG-29Ks are being delivered to India in a substandard configuration. The aircraft, said one specialist who visited the Goa base recently, "are literally being upgraded and brought up to spec while on the flightline".

      The chief culprit in this dilemma, say both Indian and Russian specialists, are the combined embargoes enacted by the Ukrainian government that bar the export of any military-use items to Russia, along with the EU and US sanctions that prohibit the export of Western military components to Moscow. The 'workaround' has been for India to import these items directly, then have them integrated onto the aircraft on-site at the Goa base.

      The MiG-29K for India differs from the MiG-29KR aircraft being built for the Russian Navy (VMF) in that the Indian-produced and foreign-made components are deleted in the configuration of the latter aircraft and replaced by Russian-made systems.

      The Russian-supplied carrier, which has been renamed INS Vikramaditya, is a re-built and modified Kiev-class cruiser that has been converted into a fully capable short take-off but arrested recovery (STOBAR) aircraft carrier by Russia's Sevmash shipyards.

      INS Vikramaditya has its own shortcomings in that it is still not fully equipped for carrier operations. "One of the items still lacking is a proper emergency landing barrier for other-than-normal landings aboard the ship," said one Indian specialist.

    Everything that they would not produce will be made "made in india", that is, with the quality of Indian films - for example, the supertank "Arjun". And the question arises - if they have not learned how to produce tank shells (they buy from us for the T90), then what will they shoot from self-propelled guns? Will they buy too?

      But no. The entire Made in India program is designed to ensure that India itself, first purchasing, then licensed, will raise its own heavy industry. And by using arms production as a growth driver, it will lift other parts of the industry as well. Good program. For Indians. We, fortunately, do not need this. But they have found a great strategy and are following it very scrupulously.
      The Arjun tank is a clear confirmation of the usefulness of the "Made in India" program precisely because this unsuccessful project, to put it mildly, was created outside the framework of this program.
      The T-90 tanks are mostly delivered to Bharata (India's self-designation) in vehicle kits. And they are collected by the Indians themselves. Those. Indian assemblers from our parts will assemble more Bhishma tanks than our Russian ones. So do not hint at their hands. They know how to work with their hands for a long time. And they are not lazy.
      They cannot design their own right now. But time will pass and they can. And if not, they will buy it. And it’s good if they buy projects. And then you look and scientists with engineers. And God forbid again ours, as recently the Americans did.

    If we knew all the conditions of the contract, otherwise it would turn out that we Indians should also be ...

    It would be nice to develop a platform from the Armata tank with our diesel engine and gearbox. And let the superstructure be done together. For us, too, good, cheapens the T-14 and T-15 and get the chassis for Kaolitsiya.

    So they can make such an assembly that will fully justify themselves in their requirements.

    It is better for Russia and India to create an agreement on mutual military assistance, otherwise the pro-American Rajah will come to power and that's it. All Russian technologies will go to the USA.

    Understand nothing request What does "joint development" have to do with it? In the same way as with other purchased weapons, India is seeking to learn the technology of production. How can the already existing Mstu be developed? Most likely they want to buy it with production at home. Or do they want to develop a Coalition (E) like Bramos?

    Msta in the usual configuration has practically no chance against the 9 due to the small firing range. 30 km by modern standards is not enough for a similar sau. But a place of caliber 155 mm will not be inferior to a South Korean car at a lower cost.
