    Russia to start delivering Kamov Ka-226T helos to India in 2019, says report

    Russia will start delivering Kamov Ka-226T 'Hoodlum' light multirole helicopters to the Indian military in 2019, said the CEO of state-owned manufacturer Russian Helicopters, Andrey Boginsky, according to Reuters on 20 February.

    Russia will start delivering Kamov Ka-226T helicopters (similar to this one) to the Indian military in 2019, according to a media report. (Russian Helicopters)

    Speaking at the IDEX show held in Abu Dhabi, Boginsky who took over as the company's CEO in January 2017 said, "The joint venture [JV] is in process and the first delivery will start in 2019. After-sales service will also be provided in India."

    Some 60 helicopters will be delivered to India and the remaining 140 will be assembled or manufactured in the south Asian country, Boginsky added.

    The governments of India and Russia announced in December 2015 their intention to establish a JV between Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) and Russian state-owned technology conglomerate Rostec - the parent company of Russian Helicopters and Rosoboronexport - to support production of the twin-engined Ka-226T.

    Rostec announced the move shortly after New Delhi agreed to procure at least 200 of the platforms for the Indian military.

    The JV for the Ka-226Ts gives HAL a 50.5% majority stake in the programme - with the Russian side holding the remaining 49.5% - and envisages the import of 60 helicopters and the licensed production of another 140 at a HAL facility that is under construction at Tumakuru, 74 km north of the Indian city of Bangalore.

    The helicopters will be operated by the Indian Air Force and the Indian Army Aviation Corps.

    Just Add my 2 Cents .... Though The LUH is getting to be a formidable platform ! I would say IT is STILL YEARS away from be certified even IF (A BIG IF) HAL keeps the schedule as plained. So we are looking at possible 2020 for induction ?

    BUT we are seeing that the both the cheetahs and Chetaks should have be redrawn from service yesterday ! :( + the requirement for Light Helicopters is high and in a short period I don't see the LUH doing this

    THUS the Addition of The Ka226 is welcomed!

    The slide above is the first definitive illustration of the SAAW directed-energy weapon that is now being co-developed by RAFAEL of Israel and the DRDL.

    Instead of trying to re-invent the wheel and cling on to legacy designs, HAL would be well-advised to join forces with KAMOV OKB of Russia to co-develop the next-generation Ka-92 MRH. If this were to be done, it will offer India the way to squeeze out of the earlier ill-fated/ill-advised commitment to procure the Ka-226T.

    Anyone thinking that dry thrust on Russian new engine should be 100kn at least .................

    Only if you want to beat Su-35's supercruising performance with MKI. But that's not possible anyway.

    Existing AL-31FP -
    Dry: 76.1 kN
    AB: 122.5 kN

    Future AL-41F-1S
    Dry: 86.2 kN
    AB: 137.2 kN
    "Special AB": 142.1 kN

    A considerable improvement either way.

    Flankers and Rafale don't need much thrust cause their aerodynamics are finest but stealth aircraft definitely need more thrust

    F119 has more than 117 kn dry thrust ....................

    Citing 'Pinaka', a multiple rocket launcher, as an example, Christopher said "when you have Pinaka Mark-lll obviously the user will have interest on it rather than Mark-l or ll, so instead of abandoning l and ll we should produce it at a reasonable cost and export it to neighbouring countries and thereby we can get back the returns of the amount that has gone into their development." "If there is an interest elsewhere, we will give the technology also, because today no country wants just the product, they also wants to have their own production within the country," he said. Responding to a question on countries of export, Christopher said "with Vietnam a USD 21 million contract has been concluded for naval products; Myanmar we have already supplied sonars..there are many other countries but it is confidential on their request," he added.

    Tata Motors’s Vernon Noronha on the firm’s defence manufacturing strategy

    Tata Motors is aiming to be a strategic partner with the ministry of defence in providing defence mobility solutions, says Vernon Noronha Mumbai:
    Tata Motors Ltd is gearing up for a bigger role in defence. It is among the Tata group companies participating in the five-day Aero India show.
    In an interview, Vernon Noronha, vice-president of defence and government business at Tata Motors, said the firm is aiming to be a strategic partner with the ministry of defence in providing defence mobility solutions.
    Edited excerpts: What kind of opportunities does the new defence procurement policy (DPP) open up for Indian companies? How do you plan to tap into it?
    The new DPP is a step in the right direction as it encourages private companies to conduct business in the defence space. We are particularly encouraged by the issue related to single-vendor situation, which will now be accepted under certain conditions. Secondly, it enables DRDO (Defence Research and Development Organization) to choose partners before they start design and development, which means, if a private industry (firm) is chosen as a manufacturing partner, there will be reverse pressure from the industry on DRDO to speed up the development process. Apart from the industry, the new DPP will benefit the end user i.e. the Indian Army. The new DPP will also encourage companies like Tata Motors to invest and win more international business in the defence space.
    How critical will the futuristic infantry combat vehicles (FICV) order be for Tata Motors as and when the winner of the bids is announced. You have also talked about plans of exporting them.
    At Tata Motors, we are transitioning from combat support to a full-range combat vehicle player, with a clear ambition to be a strategic partner to the Indian MoD (ministry of defence) in defence mobility solutions. Having said that, winning the FICV order is a critical milestone for Tata Motors... as it is mobility-oriented and established by the fact that three of the five core technologies and 19 of the 34 critical technologies are mobility-related, such as engines, transmission and running gear, which are core to Tata Motors.

    Which segments are you participating in?

    Besides the FICV, Tata Motors is also participating in other combat vehicle programmes by the MoD like the FRCV (Future Ready Combat Vehicle), to replace the T-72 battle tank and the FMBT (Future Main Battle Tank).

    Tata Motors’ technical capabilities, R&D investments, fixed assets and relevant project experience in the defence mobility space has resulted in the development of an amphibious platform for a futuristic combat vehicle-the Wheeled ICV, Tata Kestrel. Tata Motors recently demonstrated its combat vehicle capabilities at the DefenceExpo 2016 in Goa. The ICV Kestrel was jointly developed by Tata Motors with DRDO, in a competitive tender process, in a record period of 18 months. The Wheeled ICV Kestrel platform will now be offered by the DRDO to the mechanized forces of the Indian army, for UATT (User- assisted technical trials).With over 50,000 combat vehicles across the world facing replacement, we see a great opportunity to export FICVs. We will divulge details at an opportune time.

    Tata Motors bagged an order for the Safari Storme SUV that was to replace the Gypsy. If you could please update.

    We have submitted our proposal for an order for 3,192 units of the Safari Storme from the Indian Armed Forces, under a new category of vehicles - GS800 (General Service 800). The category had opened a bid for vehicles with three basic criteria–minimum payload capacity of 800kg, hard roof and air conditioning. Developed indigenously, the Tata Safari Storme has been tested in various terrains across the country, demonstrating supreme performance in the most demanding conditions with capabilities of coping with extreme on or off-road loads. While the initial order is of 3,192 units, we see a huge potential given over 35,000 Gypsies are due for replacement in the coming years.

    We all know what happened to MTA. But that wouldn't stop PSK from advising HAL...
