    India to soon get new frigate fitted with BrahMos - Hindustan Times

    India will get a new frigate equipped with the BrahMos supersonic cruise missiles from Russia within six to eight months. "During his visit to Russia, Navy chief admiral Nirmal Verma reviewed the progress of the Talwar Class follow-on warships, under construction at the Yantar shipyard there and was reassured that the first ship 'Teg' would commence trials shortly and be delivered in six to eight months," the Navy said in a release here.

    The Navy chief returned on July 18 from Russia after a six-day visit during which he took stock of all the major Indian navy projects undergoing there.

    The new frigates namely 'Teg', 'Teer' and 'Trikand' are follow ons of the three Talwar Class warships built for India by Russia and inducted into service around the early part of the decade.

    In the new ships, the Russian-origin Klub missiles would be replaced by the indigenous BrahMos missiles.

    The Navy chief also visited the Sevmash Shipyard where the Admiral Gorshkov aircraft carrier is being retrofitted and observed that "significant progress had been made on the Gorshkov project and the ship was shaping up well for the preliminary sea trials."

    That's great!! The modified Krivak III class ships will be a considerable improvement in the Indian Navy. But their induction, like that of the Gorshkov, has been unfortunately delayed.

    You know what is ironical, the Russians are not able to use the BrahMos missile system because none of the new Russians ships have the capacity to implement them.

    I believe that it has been proving difficult to integrate BrahMos with the Kilos particularly because of the challenges that come with underwater missile launches.

    Russian Shipbuilding / Indian missiles for Russian subs

    Indian missiles for Russian subs

    The situation around the repair of the Indian "Kilo" sub Sindhuvijay at Russian Zvezdochka triggered a lot of discussions both in Russian and foreign media, although the questions asked are quite different. Western media enjoys blaming the newest Russian Club-S systems and speculates about the “rumours” that Hindustan Shipbuilding intends to install a vertical-launch system of BrahMos onboard the Indian "Kilo" by adding an additional section to the subs.

    As BrahMos’ CEO Dr. Silvatanu Pillai told ShipbuildingRu “since the size of the torpedo tubes is small as compared to the diameter of BRAHMOS missile we can not accommodate it in the torpedo tubes, but BrahMos is really ready for launch from vertical launcher which can be put as a plug-in into submarines”. According to some well informed sources at the Severodvinsk based shipyard Russia too would not object if the Indian party insists on introducing alterations into the missile complex, whether it is a new complex or adjustment of the existing Club-S by the Indian specialists.

    One has to acknowledge that India is becoming a technically equal partner for some key sectors of the Russian defense complex. However, to our mind this is not the right time for “sensations” about replacing Russian missiles with Indian the ones. Most likely Sindhuvijay will stay with the Clubs. This system remains of interest for India too. Some time ago India became the first customer for Club-S. This system outperformed the rival Harpoon nearly twice.

    The peculiar feature of the Russian-Indian relations in the military sphere is that they deal mostly with the cut edge arms and technologies, most of which have just appeared in Russia. No other partner of Russia enjoys such a status. Therefore the “child diseases” in this direction are more frequent and natural.

    It is also worthwhile mentioning that the western publications used wordings like “India refused”, whereas Russian sources interpreted the same event as “India wants more tests”. Even though the latter might seem too mild, it should be closer to the truth. Western sources too much play upon words. There is too little said about the sub / missile itself, but more about the general problems of the mutual military-technical cooperation.

    Although Sndhuvijay will have to wait for more tests in June 2008, the situation around this contract in no way affected any other contracts between Zvezdochka and the Indian Navy. However, the situation at Zvezdochka should turn on the alarm for the decision makers in Russian high corridors.

    The failure of Clubs is hardly technical. Just like in many other cases the whole project suffered from the awful lack of skilled staff at the enterprise. Now very important people in Russia are urgently looking for whosoever from other regions to come to work in Severodvinsk. Was there time to do it earlier? Not everything can be for ever blamed on the notorious 1990s. It is the end of the second period of the President Putin and the “proper patriotic government”, however, all this mess took place in these eight years. Or at least it has not been corrected.
