    The Indian Special Forces and the Russian Navy have completed the anti-submarine warfare (ASW) stage of the joint Russian-Indian Indra Navy 2016 drills, spokesman for the Russian Defence Ministry's Eastern Military District Vladimir Matveev said Wednesday.

    “During the second day of the active phase of naval drills Indra Navy 2016, Russian and Indian warships practiced elements of ASW activities in the sea,” Matveev told reporters.

    In the course of the drills, the participants fired reactive depth charges at a simulated enemy submarine in the Bay of Bengal, according to the spokesman.

    The drills are being held in the Bay of Bengal since December 14. This year, some 500 servicemen are engaged in the drills, according to the Russian Defence Ministry.

    The first joint Russian-Indian naval drills were held in 2003. The exercises were also held in 2007, 2014 and 2015.

    Indian Navy chief Admiral Sunil Lanba visits Japan to expand maritime relations
    FP Staff
    Dec 18, 2016 18:16 IST

    New Delhi: To consolidate and expand the maritime relation between New Delhi and Tokyo, India's Navy chief Admiral Sunil Lanba is on a five-day visit to Japan, reported The Economic Times.
    During the visit, Admiral Lanba will hold discussions with the Japanese Navy chief, the Defence Minister and the Chief of Joint Staff besides other senior officials and dignitaries.
    Defence cooperation between India and Japan is primarily focused towards maritime cooperation, the statement said.
    The Navy is waiting for the government's approval to purchase 12 US-2i amphibious aircraft from Japanese aircraft maker ShinMaywa for Rs 10,000 crore.
    This will be the largest defence purchase from Japan after it ended its five decades old self-imposed embargo defence export. The deal is stuck since 2013.
    Japanese Maritime Self Defence Force has participated in the Malabar naval exercise in 2007, 2009, 2014 prior to being included as a regular member in the exercise since last year.
    The force participated in Malabar 15 and 16 held respectively in the Bay of Bengal and Western Pacific.
    Japan was in 2014 included as an observer in the Indian Ocean Naval Symposium, a maritime cooperation construct conceptualised and pioneered by the Indian Navy in 2008.

    The aggressive posturing of the Chinese Navy in East Asia and South China sea has compelled both India and Japan to formulate a joint maritime strategy.
    India and Japan share similar maritime challenges such as long coastline, extensive exclusive economic zone, coastal security, large coastal shipping and fishing fleet, and both navies have opportunities to learn from each other's experiences.

    We have a total of 9, surprising to see a requirement of 8 pontoons in the eastern sector, chances of more Kilos getting real?

    Should have been part of the initial P-8I order, very late decision to be honest.

    Good Day!

    The Hindustan Shipyard Limited, the largest on the East Coast, has received letters of offer from the Ministry of Defence for construction of five Fleet Support Ships and two Strategic Operating Vessels (SOVs).

    While the value of the FSS will be around Rs.10,000 crore, the SOVs also called midget submarines will be worth Rs.3,000 crore. It is also receiving retrofit of naval submarine INS Sindhuvir after successfully handing over INS Sindhukirti to the Navy last year. The new submarine refit order is worth around Rs. 500 crore.

    So this means that HSL will construct the FSS & the midgets ? @Ankit Kumar 001 @Abingdonboy

    From my knowledge HSL is already working on FSS project and are facing delays on multiple milestone achievements.


    However, sources said the DAC will also review the performance of HSL on Fleet Support Ship program where it has missed major milestones.


    Whether HSL should be awarded two out of the four LPDs will also be part of this discussion, sources said.

    Indo-Russia project for four new state-of-the-art stealth frigates will also come for discussion.

    Hopefully they wouldn't let HSL build the LPDs.

    CSL should get contract to build two. They don't have any major orders after IAC completion by 2018.

    Isn't it better to have the order split between both Private yards and have CSL working on Vikrant follow-on? This could be a good competition for L&T and Reliance to display who can walk the talk and perform? Might get us a real winner in Private sector. In the absence of Vikrant follow-on order, CSL will be gearing up for IAC-II. Regardless I'm totally against HSL getting a free entry without seeing them perform in FSS contract.

    Good Day!

    Looks like IN is not interested in follow on Vikrant class. And understandably they are not in an urgency for new carrier.

    For Vishal they should follow the modular approach of building blocks on different shipyards. Like BAE is doing with QE class carriers. This will give exposure to the new shipyards and building time will be minimal.

    A follow on to Vikrant is assured with IAC-2 being pushed back.

    Two Japanese warships in Goa, to participate in passage exercise with INS Trishul

    Panaji:
    Coinciding with chief of naval staff admiral Sunil Lanba's visit to Japan, two Japanese warships - JS Inazuma and JS Suzutsuki - have arrived at Goa on a friendly visit. Inazuma and Suzutsuki are Murasame and Akizuki class destroyers respectively and are part the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force's Escort Division Four. The two naval ships will be in Goa till December 22.

    [​IMG]

    Various operating procedures and bilateral issues were discussed between the officers of the two navies, a naval officer said. The ships will participate in a passage exercise with Indian naval frigate INS Trishul before setting course for Japan.

    The commander of the Escort Division Four is Captain Atsushi Minami. Minami along with the commanding officers of the two Japanese warships met Flag Officer Commanding Goa (FOGA) Naval Area rear admiral Puneet K Bahl.

    JS Inazuma and JS Suzutsuki are both 151 mtr in length and are commanded by commander Soichiro Tashiro and commander Kentaro Nakayama.

    A team of 30 Indian Navy officers and sailors visited the Japanese ships for familiarization and interaction with the officers and crew of Japanese ships.
