    Delivery of stealth frigates from Russia delayed: Antony

    New Delhi, Aug 24 (PTI) The acquisition of three Talwar class stealth frigates for Indian Navy from Russia has been delayed by one year to 14 months, government said today.
    It also said the delivery of aircraft carrier "Gorshkov", which has been named ''INS Vikramaditya'' is expected in December next year.

    "Rosoboronexport (the Russian company) has intimated that the delivery of ships would be delayed by 12 months for the first ship, 11 months for the second ship and 14 months for the third one," Defence Minister A K Antony told the Rajya Sabha.

    On delivery of arms from Russia, Antony said, "A contract was signed with Rosoboronexport in 2006 for acquisition of three Talwar class follow-on ships and the delivery schedule for these three ships was April 2011, October 2011 and April 2012."
    In a written reply, he said that two major cases of shipbuilding project with Rosoboronexport, ''Gorshkov'' aircraft carrier and Talwar class warships, have been delayed.

    "The induction of Gorshkov was rescheduled due to additional works such as renewal of almost all equipment and systems, hull structures, cabling and application of long-life paint to afford greater protection to its steel plating and formulation of detailed scope of harbour, sea and aircraft trials," he said.

    On Talwar class ships, Antony said, "The delays are primarily on account of non-availability of adequate skilled manpower at the shipyard to undertake concurrent construction of these vessels and the delays in delivery of Russian-origin equipment."
    The issues relating to delay of supply of defence equipment from Russia are taken up in various bilateral fora such as High Level Monitoring Committee (HLMC), Indo-Russia Inter-governmental Commission on Military Technical Cooperation (IRIGCMTC) meetings and in the Project Review Meetings, he said.

    Krivak-IV class stealth frigate (Talwar class). These frigates are
    a follow-on order for a batch of Krivak-III\INS Talwar class frigates
    earlier constructed by the Baltisky shipyard.



    Cheers!

    Trials of stealth frigate have started


    September 1 Russia commenced sea trials of the India Navy's first of the three advanced stealth frigates in the Baltic Sea, The Economic Times reports.

    'Teg', the frigate of the Project 11356, also known as Talwar Class, is first of the three frigates ordered by the Indian Navy in 2006 under a 1.5 billion dollar deal with Russia. The two other warships of the same class - the 'Tarkash' (Quiver) and the 'Trikand' (Bow) are at various stages of construction at the "Yantar" naval shipyard in Russia's Baltic exclave of Kaliningrad.

    According to 'Yantar' shipbuilder, the Teg is expected to be delivered to the Indian Navy in the beginning of 2012 to be followed by the 'Tarkash' in the same year and finally the "Trikand" in 2013. The new frigates will be armed with deadly BrahMos cruise missiles, capable of destroying enemy ships and land targets.

    India Navy already operates three of these stealth frigates and had ordered three more to bolster its fleet, The Economic Times said. Earlier in the last decade, Russia's another Baltiisky Zavod shipyard in St Petersburg had built first three of the stealth frigates -INS Talwar, INS Trishul and INS Tabar.

    Miserable. Hardware from Russia is getting notoriously delayed. Carrier delays are already a scandal. Frigates are the new additions. In between are aircaraft.

    Russian-built, BrahMos-fitted frigate set for Indian Navy induction

    Moscow, Dec 16 (IANS) Equipped with BrahMos supersonic cruise missiles, INS Teg, a Russian-built frigate for the Indian Navy, will set sail once its Indian crew arrives and takes over the warship from the Russian Navy, well-informed sources said here Friday.

    INS Teg is the first of six Talwar (Krivak) class frigates to be equipped with the 290-km BrahMos missiles jointly developed by India and Russia. The first three Talwar class warships -- INS Talwar, INS Trishul and INS Tabar -- that were inducted in the Indian Navy in 2002 and 2003 do not have the BrahMos, but are equipped with Klub class missiles.

    Apart from INS Teg, two other frigates, being built by the Kaliningrad-based Yantar shipyard -- all three constituting the second line of Talwar-class ships -- will also have the BrahMos missiles integrated.

    'With the successful test of BrahMos, INS Teg is now ready to sail to India. It is awaiting its Indian Navy crew, who are expected later this month or early in January 2012,' sources here told IANS.

    'The Indian Navy plans to induct the warship by March 2012,' they added.

    The Russian Navy, which had conducted the sea trials of INS Teg in September, test-fired the BrahMos from the ship's bow in the first week of December. Telemetric data indicated that all of its systems performed optimally, the sources said.

    India and Russia had in July 2007 signed a $1.6 billion contract for the three follow-on Talwar class frigates under the Indian Navy's Project 11356.

    INS Teg and the other two warships -- INS Tarkash (delivery likely in July 2012) and INS Trikand (January 2013) are expected to bolster the Indian Navy's growing blue water capabilities and ambitions.

    The Indian Navy giving top priority to these guided missile frigates to maintain its combat worthiness and organizational ability to deploy warships at immediate notice.

    The previous vessels of the Talwar class have been deployed by Indian Navy in anti-piracy operations in the Gulf of Aden and have proved themselves worthy of being mean fighting machines by achieving 'kills' of pirate mother ships.

    Packed with sensors, weapons and missile systems and stealth due to highly-reduced radar, infra-red, noise, frequency and magnetic signatures to beat enemy detection, each of these warships is equipped with a 100-mm gun, a Shtil air defence system, two Kashtan air defence gun and missile systems, two twin 533-mm torpedo tubes, and an anti-submarine warfare helicopter.

    BrahMos Aerospace is an India-Russia joint venture established in 1998 for the joint development of the eponymously-named supersonic cruise missiles. The missiles, said to be the fastest in their class, are now under production and have been successfully inducted into the Indian Army and Indian Navy. The two countries are also developing the air-launched version of the missile that can cruise at speed of Mach 3, or three times the speed of sound, for the Indian Air Force's Sukhoi S-30 MKI air superiority combat planes.

    A hypersonic version of BrahMos with Mach 7 speeds to boost aerial strike capability is under development and is expected to be ready by 2016.
