    I wish Russia has delivered the Vikramaditya with
    the same consistency as with these Frigates

    Talwar class frigates has always been delivered on time

    can anyone pls confirm if the 2nd batch of talwar class frigates have kashtan ciws or not?(i read so in defence.pk forum)
    i think these have kashtan ciws because every IN destroyer ad frigates r having 2 type of SAM systems.
    some pictures would be nice too.

    i also want to ask if talwar class r really stealth frigates, because i found that only Indian media calls them so.
    In the international media they r just multi-role frigates.

    Yes, the tarkash does have the kashtan 30 mm CIWS ... And I personally don't see the second batch any different.... Pictures of the tarkash have not surfaced yet ... Even the defenceworld article is one of INS Tej ..
    Talwar class frigates have acoustic and radar stealth features .... That is why the bulkhead is shaped so to deflect radar waves....

    doesn't the2nd batch has BrahMos instead of klub missile? that should count as an improvement.
    and can we upgrade the weaponry in these ships at a later stage?(shiti SAM range is too less.)

    There really is nothing we can do about the shitl.. and regarding bhramos its a small modification as the klub and brahmos use the same standard bus to communicate so its just about mechanically integrating the bhramos cannister....
