    Russia Completes Final Trials of Indian Frigate


    [​IMG]


    The Yantar shipyard in Russia’s Baltic exclave of Kaliningrad has completed the final tests of a missile frigate for the Indian navy, the company’s spokesman Sergei Mikhailov said o Tuesday.

    Russia and India signed a $1.6 billion contract on construction of three modified Krivak III class (also known as Talwar class) guided missile frigates for India in 2006. The first frigate, the Teg, was scheduled for delivery in April 2011, but funding shortfalls have delayed the work.

    Two other Talwar class frigates, the Tarkash and the Trikand, are at various stages of construction and testing at the Yantar shipyard, and their delivery dates are unknown.

    The new frigates are each armed with eight BrahMos supersonic cruise missiles.

    They are also equipped with a 100-mm gun, a Shtil surface-to-air missile system, two Kashtan air-defense gun/missile systems, two twin 533-mm torpedo launchers, and an antisubmarine warfare (ASW) helicopter.

    Russia has previously built three Talwar class frigates for India – INS Talwar (Sword), INS Trishul (Trident), and INS Tabar (Axe).

    INS TEG INDUCTED INTO THE IN!!

    Indo-Asian News Service | Updated: April 27, 2012 20:43 IST

    New Delhi: The Indian Navy on Friday added teeth to its warship fleet by formally inducting a newly-built frigate at the Yantar shipyard in Russia's Kaliningrad.

    The warship, christened INS Teg, was commissioned by the Southern Naval Command chief Vice Admiral K.N. Sushil at a ceremony in Kaliningrad, an Indian Navy spokesperson in New Delhi said.

    INS Teg is likely to reach Indian shores by the end of June 2012."INS Teg is a modern and contemporary warship with advanced technologies incorporated in every facet of design to make her stable, stealthy, fast and formidable," the spokesperson said in a press release.

    The Teg class of ships, an advanced version of the Talwar class guided missile frigates in service with the Indian Navy, have been built to meet the specific command and control needs of the Indian Navy for co-ordinated surface, air and underwater missions.

    The weapons suite of the 125-metre, 4,000-tonne frigate includes the BrahMos surface-to-surface cruise missile system, a surface-to-air missile system, 100mm medium range gun, close-in weapon system, torpedo tubes and anti-submarine rockets.

    With its advanced weapons suite and sensors fully integrated with its combat management system, the warship is equipped to augment the Indian Navy's net-centric capability, and is well suited to undertake a broad spectrum of maritime missions.

    The ship also embarks and operates an anti-submarine or an airborne early warning helicopter - a dominant force multiplier, the spokesperson added.

    "Teg incorporates innovative stealth technologies to reduce her radar cross section, infrared and magnetic signatures, as well as radiated underwater noise," he added.

    The ship is powered by an advanced gas turbine propulsion plant with state-of-the-art controls, to attain speeds in excess of 30 knots.

    The ship has been equipped with complex automated systems for nuclear, biological and chemical defence, damage control and fire fighting that can be operated centrally from sheltered posts to minimise casualties and achieve rapid restoration of combat effectiveness.

    The ship's crest embodies two crossed swords against the blue sky and ocean waves which symbolise strength, responsibility and commitment to a righteous cause.

    Commanded by Captain Rakesh Kumar Dahiya, a communications and electronic warfare specialist, Teg is manned by a crew of about 250 men, including 25 officers.

    "It is interesting to note that the individual crew members speak 15 different languages as their mother tongue and follow six different religious faiths - a true microcosm of the diversity, and unity of India," the spokesperson noted.

    The other two ships of the Teg class - Tarkash and Trikand - are likely to be delivered by September 2012 and mid-2013 respectively.

    Moscow, April 18 (IANS/RIA Novosti) The last in a series of three frigates that Russia is building for India at the Yantar shipyard in the Baltic exclave of Kaliningrad has completed sea trials, a shipyard spokesperson said Wednesday.

    The Trikand frigate carried out workup trials March 14 and was cleared for final state trials April 4, which started April 8, spokesman Sergei Mikhailov said.

    Earlier Wednesday, the frigate effectively engaged a target flying at 50 metres above the sea level with its surface-to-air missile system, he added.

    The frigate's Indian crew are to complete their onboard training practice within the next several days and then it will return to the shipyard for a final inspection.

    The frigate is due to be handed over to the Indian Navy this June, Mikhailov said.

    Russia and India signed a $1.6 billion contract on the construction of three modified Krivak III class (also known as Talwar class) guided missile frigates for India in 2006.

    The first frigate, INS Teg, joined the Indian Navy April 27, 2012, and the second, The Tarkash, arrived at the port of Mumbai in India December 30, 2012. The frigates are each armed with eight BrahMos supersonic cruise missiles.
