We are hearing news that Russia is pushing for selling the three sanction hit admiral Grigorovich class frigates. Russians cannot afford to pump money into these ships that will be mothballed for at least 5 years until Russia can develop an alternative gas turbine propulsion plant for its conventionally powered ships. I think this is an excellent opportunity for India to join Russia in developing a marine Propulsion system that can be used in our future ships. For example we too rely on imported Propulsion systems from Ukraine and other countries. Our Kolkata class ships use the Ukrainian zorya COGAG Propulsion system. Shivalik class uses the GE LM2500. The Kamortas use French systems. The ships under construction and in design boards too rely on imported Propulsion systems. Now as Russia is already stretched financially by sanctions, multi front combats and low oil prices, I think it's time India to step in and invest money and join the development of Propulsion systems. Just like we did with Brahmos and are doing in MMTA and FGFA aircrafts. http://www.janes.com/article/55284/...nction-hit-admiral-grigorovich-class-frigates http://m.economictimes.com/news/def...ates-for-indian-navy/articleshow/48091024.cms What do you say brothers?
