    ST. PETERSBURG, June 26 (RIA Novosti) - Russia will fulfill its obligations on schedule to supply three Project 11356 frigates to India by 2012, a shipbuilding industry official said on Friday.

    Russia is building three Project 11356 Krivak IV class guided missile frigates for the Indian Navy at the Yantar shipyard in Russia's Baltic exclave of Kaliningrad as part of a $1.6 billion contract signed in July, 2006.

    "The contract's deadline is 2012. We are not expecting any delays at this point," general director of the Yantar shipyard Igor Orlov said at the 4th International Maritime Defense Show in St. Petersburg.

    The official said the hulls of all three vessels had been laid down at the shipyard.

    "The first ship will be floated out this year, the second, probably, in spring 2010, and the third - a bit later," he said, adding that the Indian government had provided sufficient and timely project financing.

    A delegation of Indian military officials, led by India's deputy chief of the naval staff, Vice Adm. Raman P Suthan, visited the Yantar shipyard in October last year and said it was satisfied with the pace and the construction quality.

    Russia previously built in 2004 three Krivak class frigates - INS Talwar, INS Trishul and INS Tabar - for India, but they all were delivered late.

    All of the new frigates will be armed with eight BrahMos supersonic anti-ship cruise missile systems and not the Club-N/3M54TE missile system, which was installed on previous frigates.

    The Krivak class frigate has deadweight of 4,000 metric tons and a speed of 30 knots, and is capable of accomplishing a wide range of maritime missions, primarily hunting down and destroying large surface ships and submarines.

    Russia will deliver 3 frigates as per "contract deadline"

    Moscow, June 26: Russia will deliver three stealth frigates worth USD 1.6 billion to the Indian Navy in line with the "contract deadline" of 2012, an official has said.

    "The contract's deadline is 2012. We are not expecting any delays at this point," General Director of the Kaliningrad based 'Yantar' shipyard, Igor Orlov said.

    Speaking on the sidelines of the 4th International Maritime Defence Show in St. Petersburg Orlov underscored, "Russia will fulfil its obligations on schedule to supply three Project 11356 frigates to India by 2012.

    The first warship will be launched this year, the second, probably, in spring 2010, and the third - a bit later."

    He added the Indian government had provided 'sufficient and timely' project financing, Ria Novosti reported.

    Situated in the Russia's Baltic exclave of Kaliningrad the naval shipyard "Yantar" is building three Project 11356 Krivak IV class guided missile frigates for the Indian Navy.

    Earlier, three stealth frigates of this class - INS Talwar, INS Trishul and INS Tabar were built in St Petersburg's Baltiisk Zavod shipyard and delivered two years behind schedule.

    Last October, deputy chief of the naval staff, Vice Adm. Raman P Suthan, had inspected the construction at the 'Yantar' and was reported to be satisfied at the pace of their construction.

    The new frigates will be armed with eight Indo-Russian BrahMos supersonic anti-ship cruise missile systems in place of the Club-N/3M54TE missile systems on the three previous frigates of this class also known as "Talwar Class".

    After all, a bit of thrashing does something good. So much for arm twisting Ministry of Defense.

    domain-b.com : New batch of IN stealth frigates to be delivered on-time: Russia

    New batch of IN stealth frigates to be delivered on-time: Russia

    29 June 2009


    Moscow: Russia will deliver three stealth frigates worth $1.6 billion to the Indian Navy (IN) in line with the "contract deadline" of 2012, a senior official of a Russian shipyard has said. He was speaking on the sidelines of the 4th International Maritime Defence Show in St. Petersburg.

    "The contract's deadline is 2012. We are not expecting any delays at this point," said Igor Orlov, director general of the Kaliningrad-based Yantar shipyard. "Russia will fulfil its obligations on schedule to supply three Project 1135.6 frigates to India by 2012,'' he said.

    "The first ship will be floated out this year, the second, probably, in spring 2010, and the third - a bit later," Orlov said. A RIA Novosti report also quoted him as saying that the Indian government had provided 'sufficient and timely' project financing.

    Orlov's assurance needs to understood in the light of reports emerging in February of this year which suggested that there was a likelihood of delays in this project.

    ''The contract deadlines are very tough and there were indeed some disruptions in the construction,'' Rosoboronexport's general director Anatoly Isaikin said in a February interview with a Russian defence magazine.

    ''It took some time to deal with the problems. After additional work and testing were carried out, there were no complaints with regard to the frigate. Moreover, talks are being held for an additional order of this type of combat vessel,'' Isaikin said.

    According to Isaikin, most of the problems were related to advanced weaponry and electronics installed on the frigates in line with the requirements of the Indian navy.

    Located in the Russia's Baltic exclave of Kaliningrad, the naval shipyard Yantar is building three Project 1135.6 Krivak IV class guided missile frigates for the Indian Navy. This batch of frigates was shifted to Yantar from the St.Petersburg-based Baltiisk Zavod shipyard which built the earlier batch of three stealth frigates of this class - INS Talwar, INS Trishul and INS Tabar.

    These frigates were delivered two years behind schedule.

    The Krivak-class frigate has deadweight of 4,000 metric tons and a speed of 30 knots, and is capable of accomplishing a wide range of maritime missions, primarily hunting down and destroying large surface ships and submarines.

    A delegation of Indian defence officials, led by then India's deputy chief of naval staff, vice admiral Raman P Suthan, visited the Yantar shipyard in October last year and expressed satisfaction with the pace of the work as well as the quality of construction.

    The new frigates will be armed with eight Indo-Russian BrahMos supersonic anti-ship cruise missile systems in place of the Club-N/3M54TE missile systems on the three previous frigates of this class also known as "Talwar Class".

    Thats some kind of relief of Indian Navy. After all the delays over may projects the Govt had lost its faith over Russian Industry. Hope everything goes back on track before their lose everything.

    The recent Talwar frigates class were also delayed for 2 years.

    The main thing about these new Ships you gonna love is that it carriers brahmos. Present, Only the INS Tabar is fitted with Brahmos and barak missiles.

    We always realised we should deliever our products on time. Our defence industry is plagued with inefficiency and corruption which prevents these things. The whole system is being torn down, reorganised, and retooled. Hopefully, conglomerated business will be more efficient. It is going to be necessary if we ever hope to fill $32 billion in foreign backorders and $200 billion in state orders. Some businesses are better managed and more efficient than others.

    India gives names to 3 frigates built by Russia

    India gives names to 3 frigates built by Russia

    KALININGRAD, October 7 (RIA Novosti) - Three frigates being built at the Yantar shipyard in Russia's Baltic exclave of Kaliningrad for the Indian navy have been named by the Indian president, a shipyard spokesman said on Wednesday.
    Russia is building three Project 11356 modified Krivak III class (also known as Talwar class) guided missile frigates for the Indian Navy under a $1.6 billion contract signed in July, 2006.
    "Three frigates for the Indian navy, which are being built at our shipyard, have been given names - the Teg [Saber], the Tarkash [Quiver], and the Trikand [Bow]. Indian President Pratibha Patil has personally named the ships," Sergei Mikhailov said.
    "All three hulls have been completed... The first frigate in the series is expected to float out in October. The shipyard should be able to deliver all three vessels to the customer in 2011-2012," the official said.
    Yantar's director Igor Orlov earlier said the shipyard had previously taken out a $110 million loan from Russian national development bank Vnesheconombank (VEB) but has now been forced to seek an additional $60 million loan due to "financial constraints."
    The Talwar class frigate has deadweight of 4,000 metric tons and a speed of 30 knots, and is capable of accomplishing a wide range of maritime missions, primarily hunting down and destroying large surface ships and submarines.
    Russia has previously built three Talwar class frigates for India - INS Talwar (Sword), INS Trishul (Trident), and INS Tabar (Axe).
    All of the new frigates will be armed with eight BrahMos supersonic cruise missiles rather than 3M-54E Klub-N anti-ship missiles, which were installed on previous frigates.
    They will be also equipped with a 100-mm gun, a Shtil air defense system, two Kashtan air defense gun/missile systems, two twin 533-mm torpedo tubes, and an anti-submarine warfare helicopter.

    Russia to float out first frigate for Indian Navy Nov. 27

    23:31 17/11/2009

    KALININGRAD, November 17 (RIA Novosti) - A Russian shipyard will float out the first of three frigates for India's Navy November 27, a company spokesman said Tuesday.

    The Yantar shipyard in Russia's Baltic exclave of Kaliningrad is building three Project 11356 modified Krivak III class (also known as Talwar class) guided missile frigates for the Indian Navy under a $1.6 billion contract signed in July, 2006.

    "The frigate is due to be floated out on November 27," Sergei Mikhailov said.

    He previously said sea trials would not start right away because "post-construction work" was still to be carried out. The trials should start in 2010, he said.

    The shipyard is to deliver the last warship to India in 2011-2012.

    He did not indicate exactly when the first frigate would be complete and handed over to India.

    In an interview with RIA Novosti, Yantar's Director Igor Orlov said the shipyard was currently in talks with Russia's Vnesheconombank on "a $60 million loan to complete the construction of the three frigates for the Indian Navy."

    The Talwar-class frigate has deadweight capacity of 4,000 metric tons and a speed of 30 knots, and is capable of accomplishing a wide range of naval missions, primarily hunting down and destroying large surface ships and submarines.

    Russia has previously built three Talwar class frigates for India - the INS Talwar (from the Hindi language meaning Sword), the INS Trishul (Trident), and the INS Tabar (Axe).

    Indian President Pratibha Patil has named the new ships the Teg (Saber), the Tarkash (Quiver), and the Trikand (Bow).

    All the new frigates will be armed with eight BrahMos supersonic cruise missiles rather than 3M-54E Klub-N anti-ship missiles that were installed on previous frigates.

    They will be also equipped with a 100-mm gun, a Shtil surface-to-air missile system, two Kashtan air-defense gun/missile systems, two twin 533-mm torpedo launchers, and an anti-submarine warfare helicopter.
