    All of Indian civil aircraft start with VT- or Viceroys Territory.

    Plus, I hate the fact that it's Shtil-1 MRSAM compliment (9M317) had to be in that ridiculous arm-launcher configuration. The only saving grace is that in addition to the 24 x 9M317 rounds, it has the 32 Barak-1 PDMS VLS cells.

    I'm glad this monstrosity is over though - all future ships will have VLS-only missiles. Adm. Grigorovich with the 9M317ME and all Indian ships with Barak-8.

    With any luck, Shivalik, Talwar & Delhi-class SLEP (whenever they may come) will likely install the 9M317ME VLS in place of the arm-launcher and below-deck magazine (if not replace it entirely with Barak-8s atleast on the two Indian classes, we've had this conversation before remember?).

    Confirmation of P-17A production schedule:

    (sourced from the tender for double skin doors for the P-17A project- this is as good as a few weeks old).

    Thanks to @GSLV Mk III for the info

    I hope the IN orders more P-17As around 2020 so that there is uninterupted delivery post 2025.


    These monsters will be able to take on ANYTHING the PLA(N) can throw at India, they shoould be churned out as fast as they can be made- 2/year is a bloody awesome induction rate for these ships! Hope the IN doesn't make the same mistake of throwing away the capital and expertise that went into making these ships. Let's not have another P-17--->P-17A or P-75--->P-75(I) fiasco

    Yup, the Bhramos AShM will take care of that and the EL/M-2048+BARAK-8 wil protect the ship.

    There's nothing remarkable about the PLA(N) ships other than the rate at which they are produced. There are also serious questions about their quality:

    Why are torpedo launchers not installed?

    @penguin you were right about the torpedo launchers...

    P17 has RBU-6000 for ASW but P17A will have Torpedo launchers blending along the sides of the vessel.

    That is a BIG shortfall. Why would the navy design a 6000 tn frigate without torpedo launchers?


    The range of RBU is less than 6 km. A heavyweight torpedo 50 km.
