    Russia will participate in a new tender on the delivery of six diesel-electric submarines for the Indian Navy, the state-run exporter Rosoboronexpo t said. Russia dropped out of the first Indian submarine tender in 2009.
    "There is a new tender, with the new requirements, and together with [Russia's]Rubin design bureau we are making a proposal to India for Amur 650 class submarines," Azizov told reporters at IMDS-2011 naval show in St. Petersburg on Friday.

    Azizov said that Amur class is a fourth-generation vessel, and "Russia has all chances to win the tender."
    The Indian Navy said in February it will announce a global tender for procuring six next generation submarines worth about $11 billion by the end of 2011. India is building six Scorpene submarines the Mazgaon Dockyards Limited (MDL) under a deal with France's DCNS. However, the Indian side said it would need submarines "with better stealth capability, improved detection range and combat management system."
