    Great beginning and it will establish Indian credential on the world market.

    It will do wonders for the Indian economy too.

    So GRSE is offering a Kamorta class variants to the Philippines for $200 million each (excluding armaments). This is an excellent deal but GRSE is unlikely to win the Philippines tender.

    Brunei is also looking at the Kamorta class.

    GRSE is offering VietNam 140 tonne patrol boats for $25 million each. This is a bit overpriced isn't it? This boat is only 35m long. It seems like a bad deal considering VietNam can domestically build OPVs up to 2000 tonne. Better to save that $100 million credit line to buy something bigger.

    @Carlosa, I guess we can say that those Kamorta class rumours we were talking about belong to a different procurement project than these 4 OPV deal?

    GRSE to Export Light Frigates to Philippines

    [​IMG]
    NEW DELHI, — In a major win for the Indian warship building industry, India's state-run Garden Reach Shipbuilders & Engineers (GRSE) Ltd has emerged as the winner for Philippine Navy's big-ticket modernization program.
    GRSE was the lowest bidder to supply two light frigates and hopes to seal the contract worth more than $321 million in the next two months, said one GRSE official.
    A total of four firms joined the bidding for the Philippine Navy project: GRSE; Hyundai Heavy Industries Inc. and Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co. Ltd., both from South Korea; and Navantia S.A. of Spain.
    GRSE, administered by the Indian Ministry of Defence, has built 95 warships, including frigates, corvettes and fast patrol boats, since 1960.
    GRSE's light frigate will be a design based on the Indian Navy's Kamorta-class anti-submarine corvette and will be capable of withstanding Sea State 7, which means it can withstand a wave height of up to 9 meters.
    The 2,000-tonne frigate will be 95 meters long, have a combined diesel and diesel (CODAD) configuration propulsion system and be able to work in an area contaminated with nuclear, biological, and chemical agents.
    In addition, it will have a tactical data link and radio capable of tactical communication. The frigates will have 76mm naval guns and fire control radar with a built-in electro-optical tracking system integrated into the Combat Management System (CMS).
    The state-owned Goa Shipyard is also building two OPVs for the Sri Lankan Navy under India's government-to-government exchange agreement with Sri Lanka. First OPV will be delivered by end of this year and second OPV by middle of next year.
