    This is great, btw. Rs 23-30k cr per year for procurement, plus a project list; from that + shipyard construction timeframes + the going price for steel, labor, and other commodities, one can surmise how much all the subsystems for each of these ships will cost - which says a lot about the quality of the subsystems these ships will launch with.

    Since India has a relatively open procurement system for military subsystems that is open to international bidders (and even quoted in international prices), prospective adversaries will always know what sort of capabilities INS platforms will field 2-3 years in advance, as well as whether they are up to the latest international standards. Nice! :)

    Yes it has started.

    Search for Yard No. 12704 to yard no. 12707 in MDL tenders section.

    Prospective adversaries always know about the platforms their adversaries are going to field over next 2-3 years.
    Only with the open system as in India, the internet poster like you ( may be not you!) and me get to know about them in advance and not when grainy pictures are released.


    .

    Well I could have replied in-detail if you could elaborate what you have to say.

    But, with the little I understood, I would be happy if Chinese planner's SOP for calculating the sub-system on adversary's naval platforms are the way you described in your post.

    You mean something like this?

    Calls from Chinese state broadcaster seeking footage of new aircraft carrier raise alarm bells in Defence Ministry | Mail Online

    as per the current rate of constructions of the ships and procurement from the outside, will it be possible to induct 4-5 ships per year ?

    The Chinese have been spying on our indigenous aircraft carrier!

    Their posterior is aflame!

    The poor sods have no clue how to design and construct a carrier!

    Total tuchkus!
