    The Project 15B vessel will retain the hull form of Kolkata class destroyers and most of its systems, there will be some significant upgrades. For example, some structural changes in the superstructure will improve stealth and include better sound and infrared suppression. The Project 15B will also differ from the Project 15A through employing a fully flush deck. This will improves stealth because of the smoothness of the overall deck with far fewer angles and corners. The displacement of each Project 15B will be approximately 7,000 tons, a 200 ton addition over the Project 15A Kolkatas.

    . Project 15B will also be armed with the new Nirbhay land attack cruise missile (1,000 km range), the hypersonic Brahmos-II anti-ship cruise missile (300 km range) and an Extended Range Surface to Air Missile (ER-SAM) (100 km range).

    MDL believes that, since Project 15-B is a follow on of the 15-A, the design and planning period will be less than 1½ years. Once the design is finalised, the navy wants the first destroyer to roll out within four years, with the others completed at one-year intervals. By that ambitious timeline, if the order is placed on MDL by end-2009, the first 15-B destroyer would be commissioned in mid-2015.

    i believe it will be in 2017

    What will be the Project 15B class named as? Read somewhere that it will be christened the Bangalore class. Is this a confirmed news?

    2018,2020,2022,2024 are the respective delivery years.

    Read it in a article for the delivery of shafts from Russia.

    Would try to dig it up and link it here.

    After P15b do you guys think we should move towards bigger destroyers like a 15000 ton displacement DDG like the Zumwalt or stick to the same size and improve it.

    :hmm: Drdo or any other Private Firm should try to build a universal Vls capable of launching AShMs, LACMs, SAMs... In this way we can accomodate more missiles on a single ship and probably can keep the same tonnage and design that we have now.

    The Gas Turbine engines are coming from Ukraine..

    SE "Zorya"- "Mashproject" signed the contract with Indian customer for delivery of gas turbine power plants for ships that will be built at Mumbai shipyard. The contract is concluded with the parties following the results of the tender of 2012. Under the terms of the contract the enterprise will equip four new ships (Project 15B) during the period of 2016 to 2019.
    The enterprise already equips the third series of such ships. In 1993-1995 the power units were delivered to India for three ships of the Project 15 (Delhi type) and in 2005-2006 for three ships of the Project 15A (Kolkata type).
    The enterprise will produce an updated gas turbine power unit with microprocessor control system.

    Their dates seem to conflict the one in the report by Indrus. If the last unit will be delivered by 2019 it won't take MDL 6 years to deliver the final destroyer :)
