    Yes , Its a Worth Considering Joining this Project

    Australia , Canada and Turkey are also been Invited to Join the Consortium....While Canada have Rejected the Project

    We can Have Our Own Design and Specifications according to Our Needs and Govt can Hand this project over to Private Shipyards

    The Design By EADS Has Larger Flight deck so they can carry Chinooks

    Some other Pics of the Concept

    definitely worth investing in. this is set to be the most advanced frigate created to date. the Americans have no plan building frigates for a while, they are set to acquire next gen destroyers. the french future frigate isn't as good as this one, the Russians have the Gorshkov class frigate, but it will be the older design that this, and would have be built in Russia, not India. and the Chinese don't have anything like this planned either.. also, BAE, who is designing this ship, did an insane job with the type 45 destroyer. this ship will be built in India, if the project is undertaken. my only complain with this is that it should be built by a public sector shipyard, outsourcing defense to the private sector always leads to bad things.

    noone sells nuclear sub tech, except the russians.. partly because they are desperate, and also b/c there has alwyas been a soviet/indian relationship.

    If this deal does go through and L&T/Pipavav/ABG design this new gen. world class Frigate with BAE. What will be the preference of IN..?
    Shivalik Class order will continue or, will they favour this new design..? Will we field BRAHMOS + BARAK-8 on this one also ..? Will BAE outsource some modules of British Frigates to us for cost reduction..?
    And most importantly who will cover the cost escalations ..? Govt. or, Shipyard ..?

    I like the idea but I don't know how it is going to work out as India would want to put its own weapons and sensor package while the British would ask for their own. The different packages will call for some changes in the design. But overall, it will help the bring down the overall procurement cost for the British and will help India learn some cutting-edge warship building technologies. So its a win-win situation.

    I think Deal is Lucrative but Indians (indigenous projects) are doing Good....it will be interesting to know if they will transfer All the tech ,take Indian Navy Inputs + what about other Indian Systems / Sensors Package. ??? :what:

    The initial design will be done jointly but as the ships will be made in their home countries, the countries can opt for their own weapons/sensor package.

    For the IN ones the package will include: Barak-8 and Barak for air-defence, Brahmos 1/2 and Nirbhay as anti-ship and land-attack missiles, indigenously developed torpedoes, BEL EW suite and sonar, etc.

    For RN: PAAMS, tomahawk, etc.

    Any news on this? I want this deal to go through! It will be a very good opportunity to create our own BAE Systems (Private contractors) And if that would be L&T I will be the happiest!

    beleive me the capital will never be a problem as long as it is seen wat india will get in terms of ToT. if the deal is good and india gets its hand on advance tech, the deal will come through.
