La Russie et l'Inde n'en finissent pas de négocier pour 3 frégates supplémentaires Projet 11356 pour l'Inde

La Russie et l'Inde n'en finissent pas de négocier pour 3 frégates supplémentaires Projet 11356 pour l'Inde | Newsletter navale | Scoop.it

Russia and India are negotiating construction of three additional frigates for the Indian Navy and the lease of a second nuclear submarine, RIA Novosti learned from a spokesperson of the Center for Analysis of World Arms Trade (CAWAT).

“Negotiations are under way on the construction of three frigates of the Project 11356 Admiral Grigorovich Class for the Indian Navy at the Yantar Baltic Shipbuilding Plant. The Government of India is also considering leasing a second Russian nuclear submarine, after the first nuclear submarine of the Project 971 Akula Class (formerly Nerpa, Chakra) enters service with the Indian Navy,” said the representative of CAWAT.

He recalled that the first three frigates of the Project 11356 Akula Class were built at the Baltic shipyards in 1999-2004. The second set of three frigates was supplied with advanced weaponry and improved operation performance characteristics. Unlike the first set of three ships, which was equipped with the Club-N Missile Complex, this set of ships was supplied with Russian-Indian supersonic cruise missile systems – using the PJ-10 BrahMos.

La Russie présente son offre à l'Inde pour 3 frégates Talwar supplémentaires équipées du missile de croisière BrahMos

Russia offered India three additional Project 11356 or Talwar class frigates, after New Delhi made a formal request, Vladimir Spiridopulo, the general director working on this project at the Northern Design Bureau, said.  Negotiations have been taking place since this spring, TASS said.

Russia supplied India with two sets of three Project 11356 frigates, with the last one being the INS Trikand.

“Negotiations on the third set of three frigates have been taking place with the Indian side since this spring. India sent us a request and we presented a proposal in response,” Spiridopulo said. “I cannot talk about all the details of the third set of three frigates,” he added.

Spiridopulo also would not specify which shipyard might be given the order – the first three ships were built in the Baltic Shipyards of St. Petersburg, and the second set in Kaliningrad’s Yantar Shipyards.

The general director of the bureau reported that negotiations are underway for the modernization of the first three Indian Project 11356 frigates, handed over in the early 2000s. “But the contract for the modernization has not been signed yet,” said Spiridopulo.

Speaking about the other areas of military-technical cooperation with India, Spiridopulo said that the Northern Design Bureau is helping to install a combat information and control system, of its own design, on Indian Project 17 destroyers (Kolkata-class). According to him, this system is now being installed on the third ship of this project.

India would be looking for the next frigates to be equipped with BrahMos missiles. The Indian Navy’s existing Project 11356 frigates are not BrahMos-equipped because they were designed before the BrahMos naval variant could be developed.

These ships, a modification of Krivak III class Russian frigates, are designed to carry and operate one heavy duty early warning helicopter which can provide over-the-horizon targeting. The frigates can also have the indigenously built Dhruv light combat helicopter.

The frigate’s efficacy in anti-submarine warfare can be gauged by the fact that its RPK-8 rocket system has a firing range from 600 to 4300 metres and the depth of engagement of up to 1000 metres.

Its combat data system independently generates combat missions based on situation analysis, determines optimal number of missile firings, displays information on the state of ship-borne weaponry and transmits data to protection systems.

La Marine indienne a effectué pour la 1ère fois un tir de missiles de croisière BrahMos par la frégate Trikand

La Marine indienne a effectué pour la 1ère fois un tir de missiles de croisière BrahMos par la frégate Trikand | Newsletter navale | Scoop.it

NEW DELHI, February 06. /ITAR-TASS/. India's Navy has for the first time salvo-fired BrahMos supersonic cruise missiles from board the frigate Trikand built in Kaliningrad, a source close to the Indian Ministry of Defence told Itar-Tass on Thursday in the lobby of the DefExpo-2014 international exhibition of ground and naval armaments.

"This is the world's first salvo-firing of supersonic cruise missiles. The salvo-firing was effected on January 30 off the coast of India's southern state of Karnataka," the source pointed out. "It's just been confirmed that everything went off successfully. Two missiles were fired one after the other with an interval of three seconds".

The source said, "The first missile with a warhead successfully hit the target and the second one – with telemetry – followed the assigned trajectory". "We can launch almost simultaneously eight missiles one after another at three-second intervals", he specified.

The frigate Trikand was built for the Indian Navy at the Baltic shipyard Yantar (amber) in Kaliningrad. The ship was launched on May 25, 2011. The Teg, first of three frigates of Design 11356, built in Kaliningrad under a contract concluded with India in 2005, was turned over to the customer on April 27, 2012. The second one, the Tarkash, was received by the Indian side on November 9 of the same year, and the Trikand in June 2013. 

The ships of Design 11356 are designed to conduct combat operations in oceanic and sea areas independently and as part of naval force. The frigates are capable of effectively destroying enemy submarines, exercising anti-ship, anti-aircraft and anti-submarine defence of combat ships and vessels that support combat operations of ground troops, and ensuring amphibious landing. They all are armed with BrahMos strike systems (eight missiles).

BrahMos missiles have a range of up to 290 km and are capable of carrying explosive ordnance weighing up to 300 kg at a speed of 2.8 Mach. These are two-tier cruise missiles, 10 metres long and having a diameter of 70 cm.

Le chantier russe Baltic Shipyard met en chantier la 5ème frégate Projet 11356M Admiral Istomin | Newsletter navale | Scoop.it

KALININGRAD, November 15 (RIA Novosti) – Construction of a new frigate for the Russian navy began Friday at the Yantar shipyard in the Baltic Sea exclave of Kaliningrad.

The Admiral Istomin is the fifth in a series of six Project 11356M (Admiral Grigorovich class) frigates the shipyard is building under two contracts with Russia’s Defense Ministry.

The first four ships in the series – Admiral Grigorovich, Admiral Essen, Admiral Makarov and Admiral Butakov – are currently at different stages of completion.

The Admiral Grigorovich is expected to join Russia’s Black Sea Fleet in 2014.

The Project 11356M frigates displace 3,850 tons and are designed to carry out anti-ship, anti-submarine and air defense missions, both independently and as part of naval task forces or convoys.

The vessels are armed with an eight-cell launcher for Kalibr or Klub anti-ship and surface-to-surface missiles, a 100-mm main gun, two Kashtan gun and missile close-in air defense systems, a Shtil vertical-launch air defense missile system, two torpedo tubes, an anti-submarine rocket system and a Ka-28 or Ka-31 helicopter.

La Marine russe va équiper ses futures frégates Projet 11356 Admiral Grigorovich de missiles Surface-Air Shtil | Newsletter navale | Scoop.it

MOSCOW, September 23 (RIA Novosti) – The Russian navy will receive new advanced surface-to-air missile (SAM) systems next year, a defense industry executive said Monday.

Shtil vertical-launch modular air-defense systems are designed for a series of six Project 11356 frigates now under construction, and can effectively engage any existing and future combat aircraft, Maxim Kuzyuk, general director of the Aviatsionnoye Oborudovaniye (Aircraft Equipment) holding, told RIA Novosti.

One of the system’s principal features is its high firing rate: It fires missiles every two seconds, he said, adding that each module consists of 12 missiles.

“We are planning to deliver six Shtil SAM complexes for [Project 11356] ships before 2016,” Kuzyuk said.

Le commandant de la Flottille de la mer Noire confirme l'arrivée en 2014 d'une frégate projet 11356 | Newsletter navale | Scoop.it

La Flottille russe de la mer Noire sera équipée en 2014 de la première des six frégates dernier cri du projet 11356, baptisée Amiral Grigorovitch, a annoncé lundi aux journalistes le commandant en chef de la Flottille, le vice-amiral Alexandre Fédotenkov.

"Dès 2013, la frégate denier cri Amiral Grigorovitch (projet 11356)  sera mise à l'eau pour équiper, en 2014, la Flottille russe de la mer Noire. Ce navire sera le premier des six frégates de ce projet, doté d'un système de missiles de croisière longue portée et à haute précision Calibre", a indiqué le vice-amiral.

"La Flottille compte également s'équiper de six sous-marins du projet 636, dont les trois premiers porteront les noms de Novorossiïsk, Rostov-sur-le-Don et Stari Oskol. La Flottille sera aussi dotée de six embarcations de combat  à usages divers", a ajouté le responsable.

Les frégates du projet 11356 sont destinées à mener les opérations contre les navires et les submersibles dans les mers et les océans, ainsi qu'à parer les attaques aériennes. Elles seront armées de missiles mer-mer, mer-air, de pièces d'artillerie, de torpilles et de bombes.

L'Inde va probablement commander à la Russie 3 frégates Talwar supplémentaires modifiées BrahMos pour un montant de $3 milliards

L'Inde va probablement commander à la Russie 3 frégates Talwar supplémentaires modifiées BrahMos pour un montant de $3 milliards | Newsletter navale | Scoop.it

A formal contract is likely to be signed after Russia delivers to India the third and final Talwar-class stealth frigate INS Trikand..

Russia is going to get a fresh order of building three more Talwar-class stealth frigates for India later this year which is likely to be worth $3 billion. The frigates have substantially enhanced Indian Navy’s firepower in the region mainly because of their stealth capabilities.

Knowledgeable sources told RIR that the Indians have already orally conveyed their in-principle decision to Russia to construct three more Talwar-class frigates. A formal contract is likely to be signed after Russia delivers to India the third and final Talwar-class stealth frigate INS Trikand, being built at the Yantar shipyard in Russia. The delivery is expected in June 2013. 

The game-changer aspect of the Talwar class frigates is its stealth technology and a special hull design. These features enable the Talwar class frigates to be extremely useful in a wide range of missions like finding and eliminating enemy submarines and large surface ships. The Talwar-class frigates are the first Indian Navy warships to have stealth features.

What the Fresh Deal May Entail

Sources in the Indian defence establishment said the mood is quite upbeat about the successful Talwar-class frigates experiment and once the current cycle gets completed after the delivery of INS Trikand, the Indian Navy will take a call on issuing a formal order to Russia.

The new set of frigates will be more technologically advanced and each of the next three Talwar-class frigates will be equipped with BrahMos missiles. The existing Talwar-class boats and the upcoming INS Trikand are not BrahMos-equipped because they were designed before the BrahMos naval variant could be developed.

Therefore the greatest USP of the upcoming order for three more Talwar-class frigates would be that for the first time these frigates will be fitted with BrahMos. “This is the single most important reason why the Russians don’t really have to worry whether they are going to get this order or not,” a source said on condition of anonymity....

Les frégates russes Projet 11356 (Krivak IV) vont être dotées de missiles 3M-54E Klub-N (SS-N-27 Sizzler) | Newsletter navale | Scoop.it

ST. PETERSBURG, March 18 (RIA Novosti) - Russia will install Kalibr (SS-N-27 Sizzler) missile systems on three of its Project 11356 frigates, the Baltic shipbuilding plant said on Monday.

The plant, affiliated with the United Shipbuilding Corporation, will manufacture the missile systems for the Yantar shipyard before the end of 2014.

“Under an existing contract, the Baltic plant will install Kalibr systems on the first troika of frigates,” the plant said, adding that the next three frigates are also expected to be equipped with Kalibr missiles.

The Kalibr is capable of effectively engaging aerial, submerged and coastal targets, and has a range of up to 185 miles.

The Project 11356 Krivak IV-class is a guided-missile frigate designed to counter surface ships, submarines and airborne targets.

Négociations entre Moscou et New Delhi pour la construction de nouvelles frégates Projet 11356 pour l'Inde

Négociations entre Moscou et New Delhi pour la construction de nouvelles frégates Projet 11356 pour l'Inde | Newsletter navale | Scoop.it

La Russie pourrait construire de nouvelles frégates du projet 11356 pour la Marine indienne, a annoncé samedi à Severodvinsk Igor Sevastianov, directeur général adjoint de l'Agence russe d'exportation d'armements (Rosoboronexport).

"Nous menons des discussions sur le projet de construction de frégates pour la Marine indienne. L'Inde étudie des propositions russes", a indiqué M.Sevastianov après avoir officiellement remis à l'Inde le porte-avions modernisé INS Vikramaditya aux chantiers navals Sevmach.

Si les deux pays se mettent d'accord, la réalisation du projet sera confiée aux chantiers navals Iantar de Kaliningrad qui ont déjà construit trois frégates du projet 11356 pour l'Inde. La frégate baptisée Teg ("sabre") a été remise à la Marine indienne le 27 avril 2012, le Tarkash ("carquois") le 9 novembre 2012 et le Trikland ("arc") le 1er juillet 2013.

Les frégates du projet 11356 sont destinées à rechercher et à détruire les sous-marins, ainsi qu'à assurer la défense anti-aérienne et anti-navire. Leur tirant d'eau  est de 4.000 tonnes, l'équipage compte 220 personnes et l'autonomie est de 5.000 milles marins. Les frégates sont équipées de missiles supersoniques mer-mer BrahMos, mis au point en coopération entre l'Inde et la Russie.

Les chantiers navals soviétiques et russes ont construit plus de 70 bâtiments de surface et sous-marins pour l'Inde depuis 1965.

26.09.2013
Another batch of Russian frigates of Project 11356 can be built in India, but Russia expects to receive bids for their construction for the Indian Navy at home. This was today told Russian reporters, Deputy General Director of "Rosoboronexport" Victor Komardin, who arrived in Kochi as part of the Russian delegation to participate in the first naval and shipbuilding exhibition "NAMEKSPO 2013" (NAMEXPO).

"The Indian side may try to make them at home, but in terms of the time it will be less effective," - he explained. According Komardina, in the case of the construction of the next batch of frigates for the Indian territory term papers on this order may be increased almost threefold.

He recalled that Russia has not yet received from the Indian side of the notice of the relevant competition. "The belief that we can get an application for the next party in order to build them in Russia until it can be confirmed only indirectly - added Komardin. - Series started, leading to cheaper projects, ships have been verified. We look forward to receipt of the application in the future. "

Until now, India has acquired from Russia six frigates of Project 11356 in two series. The first three frigates have been equipped with the Russian attack missile complex "Club" and the second "three" - Russian-Indian percussion complex "BrahMos".

MOSCOW, March 15 (RIA Novosti) - The last in a series of three frigates that Russia is building for India at the Yantar Shipyard in the Baltic exclave of Kaliningrad has completed contractor sea trials, a spokesman for the shipyard said on Friday.

Sergei Mikhailov said the trials of The Trikand frigate in the Baltic Sea began on February 5 and were completed on March 14.

“Within this period, the vessel carried out five voyages in the Baltic Sea, each lasting several days,” Mikhailov said.

The Trikand is currently at the Baltiisk port, preparing for state sea trials. It is scheduled to join the Indian Navy in the summer of 2013.

Russia and India signed a $1.6 billion contract on the construction of three modified Krivak III class (also known as Talwar class) guided missile frigates for India in 2006.

The first frigate, INS Teg, joined the Indian Navy on April 27, 2012, and the second, The Tarkash, arrived at the port of Mumbai in India on December 30, 2012.

The frigates are each armed with eight BrahMos supersonic cruise missiles.

They are also equipped with a 100-mm gun, a Shtil surface-to-air missile system, two Kashtan air-defense gun/missile systems, two twin 533-mm torpedo launchers and an antisubmarine warfare (ASW) helicopter.
