    Stealthy Kiltan to propel Navy’s anti-submarine warfare arm
    Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will commission the home-grown stealth corvette at the Naval Dockyard in Visakhapatnam



    Visakhapatnam: Indian Navy’s Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) arm will further get a boost today when Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman commissions the home-grown stealth corvette Kiltan (post-commissioning INS Kiltan) at the Naval Dockyard here.

    Upon commissioning, the ship would join the Eastern Fleet and would enhance Indian Navy’s reach, striking capability and sustainability in the Indian Ocean Region.

    Kiltan is the third of four desi ASWs build under Project 28 (Kamorta class) and will be ready to be operationally deployed on the day of commissioning itself.

    Designed by Directorate of Naval Design and built by Garden Reach Shipbuilders and Engineers (GRSE), Kolkata, Kiltan is the latest indigenous warship after Shivalik class, Kolkata class and sister ships INS Kamorta and INS Kadmatt to have joined the Indian Navy fleet.

    Manned by a team of 13 officers and 178 sailors, Commander Naushad Ali Khan is at the helm as her first Commanding Officer. The ship derives its name from one of the islands in Aminidivi group located in Lakshadweep and Minicoy Islands.

    Navy says a host of weapons and sensors have been integrated to provide a Common Operational Picture (COP). Its indigenous weapons and sensors suite showcases the nation’s growing capability in this niche area, says Navy.

    “Kiltan is India’s first major warship to have a superstructure of carbon fibre composite material resulting in improved stealth features, lower top weight and maintenance costs. The ship is also the first major warship to have undertaken sea trials of all major weapons and sensors as a pilot project prior delivery by shipyard to Indian Navy,” says a Navy spokesperson.

    Interestingly, Indian Navy says ship also boasts of the proud legacy of the erstwhile Petya Class ship of same name ‘Kiltan (P79) built in USSR. It had then actively participated as Task Force Commander in ‘Operation Trident’ during 1971 Indo-Pak war.

    “It had then served the nation with distinction throughout her illustrious service life from 30 October 1969 to 30 June 1987. The return of Kiltan in new avatar is a matter of pride of the people who have sailed with her and those who will be now part of her future missions,” says an official.

    Here are some of the key features of the mighty Kiltan

    • It is built using high grade steel (DMR 249A) produced in state-owned Steel Authority of India Limited (SAIL).
    • The installed propulsion and auxiliary systems provides very low radiated underwater noise feature, required for ASW missions.
    • Enhanced stealth features have been achieved by ‘X’ form of hull, full beam superstructure, inclined ship sides and use of Infra Red Signature Suppression (IRSS) system designed by NSTL for cooling the Engine and Generator exhausts.
    • About 81 per cent of the ship is indigenous and it is well equipped to fight in Nuclear, Biological and Chemical (NBC) warfare conditions.
    • With a displacement of 3500 tonnes, the sleek and magnificent ship spans 109 meters in length and 14 meters at the beam and is propelled by four diesel engines to achieve speeds in excess of 25 knots with an endurance of 3450 nautical miles.
    • Weapons and sensors suite includes heavy weight torpedoes, ASW rockets, 76 mm caliber medium range gun and two multi-barrel 30 mm guns as Close-in-Weapon System (CIWS).
    • It has a dedicated fire control system, missile decoy rockets (chaff), advanced ESM (Electronic Support Measure) system, most advanced bow mounted sonar and air surveillance radar Revathi.
    • The ship in the future would also be installed with short range SAM system and carry an integral ASW Helicopter.

    thank you kunal, thanks for the information.
    does it acts as the fleet support ship in formation alongsides the destroyers and carriers or it leads the flotillas along with with the frighates which have the anti ship missiles.
    can you please throw some light on these

    The ship is lacking an advanced towed array sonar according this article . Nothing that cannot be fixed fast hopefully.

    « Like numerous Indian warships before it, the navy’s newest anti-submarine warfare (ASW) corvette, INS Kiltan, joined the fleet on Monday without equipment crucial for discharging its primary role – detecting and destroying enemy submarines.
    The Kiltan, like two predecessor ASW corvettes, INS Kamort and INS Kadmatt, was commissioned by Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman in Visakhapatnam without “advanced towed array sonar” (ATAS), essential for detecting enemy submarines in the shallow Arabian Sea where the peculiar temperature and salinity gradients sharply limit the effectiveness of conventional sonars.
    Without ATAS, enemy submarines can sneak undetected to within 50-80 kilometres of Indian warships and destroy them with heavy torpedoes from standoff ranges. »

    The ‘100-Ton’ Difference In The Indian Navy’s New Submarine Hunter

    [​IMG]
    At 9am on the coming Monday, India’s new defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman will oversee her first warship commissioning ceremony. At the naval dockyard in Visakhapatnam, she will flag into service the INS Kiltan, India’s third Project 28 anti-submarine warfare (ASW) corvette. But there’s a significant difference between the Kiltan, and the two class types — INS Kamorta and INS Kadmatt — that came before her. A 100-tonne difference.

    While the Kamorta and Kadmatt are built entirely of steel (DMR249A special grade high-tensile steel developed by SAIL in India), the Kiltan’s entire superstructure has been constructed with carbon fiber reinforced plastic — instantly shaving off 100 tons in weight from the brand new submarine hunter.

    Apart from the weight saving, top sources in the Indian Navy said the advantages of the new material are four fold: (a) It provides essential corrosion resistance to the exposed superstructure, (b) improves sea-keeping ability by increasing metacentric height (a measure of the initial static stability of a floating body). And finally, (c) the use of non-metals reduces radar signature and boosts stealth specifically by suppressing extremely low frequency electromagnetic radiations.

    Sources also said the Kiltan will be stealthier, more agile and a more survivable ship at sea than the two previous P28 corvettes. Weight gain from radar signature reduction work had extracted a significant price on the ship’s nimbleness and top speed during the final design stages. The decision to explore a composite superstructure was decided as an imperative for the two final ships. The Kiltan will cruise a shade faster than the two previous ships at about 24 knots.

    The P28 corvette class, built by the state owned Garden Rearch Shipbuilders & Engineers (GRSE) in Kolkata, are nearly 90 per cent indigenous, says its maker. While the two ships in service are finding their feet, the class ran into rough weather with the national auditor earlier this year over delays and the fact that the ships still don’t have their full complement of armament. The Kiltan, for instance, should have been delivered by July 2014 according to the original project contract.


    UPDATE: The Indian Navy just issued this official statement on the Kiltan:

    Kiltan is the latest indigenous warship after Shivalik class, Kolkata class and sister Ships INS Kamorta and INS Kadmatt and sister Ships INS Kamorta and INS Kadmatt to have joined the Indian Navy’s arsenal where in a plethora of weapons and sensors have been integrated to provide a ‘Common Operational Picture (COP)’.

    It is India’s first major warship to have a superstructure of carbon fibre composite material resulting in improved stealth features, lower top weight and maintenance costs. The ship is also the first major warship to have undertaken Sea Trials of all major weapons and sensors as a pilot project prior delivery by shipyard to Indian Navy and is ready to be operationally deployed on the day of joining the Indian Navy.

    The ship’s weapons and sensors suite is predominantly indigenous and showcases the nation’s growing capability in this niche area. The ship has been constructed using high grade steel (DMR 249A) produced in state-owned Steel Authority of India Limited (SAIL). With a displacement of 3500 tonnes, the sleek and magnificent ship spans 109 meters in length and 14 meters at the beam and is propelled by four diesel engines to achieve speeds in excess of 25 knots with an endurance of 3450 nautical miles.

About 81% of the ship is indigenous and it is well equipped to fight in Nuclear, Biological and Chemical (NBC) warfare conditions.

    The ship hosts a predominantly indigenous cutting-edge weapons and sensors suite which includes heavy weight torpedoes, ASW rockets, 76 mm caliber Medium Range gun & two multi-barrel 30 mm guns as Close-in-Weapon System (CIWS) with dedicated fire control systems, missile decoy rockets (Chaff), advanced ESM (Electronic Support Measure) system, most advanced bow mounted sonar and air surveillance radar Revathi. The ship in the future would also be installed with short range SAM system and carry an integral ASW Helicopter.
