    An agreement on leasing another Russian nuclear-powered submarine to India is to be signed at the Russian-Indian summit in December, a source at India’s Defense Ministry told TASS.

    The possibility of leasing a second submarine from Russia will be studied when India’s Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar will visit Moscow next week," the source said. "Parrikar will hold talks on this strategic project with his Russian counterpart Sergey Shoigu. After the ten-year contract is signed another two or three years will be required for upgrading the submarine in keeping with India’s requirements," he said.

    Over the past 45 years Russia and India have established reliable, time-tested strategic ties in the field of defence. India’s armed forces are equipped with Soviet and Russian military hardware 70%, the source said, adding that Russia had always provided its best military hardware to India.

    A Russian military source at the Russian embassy in New Delhi has confirmed to TASS the negotiations on leasing the Kashalot K-322 nuclear power submarine of project 971 Shchuka had entered the final phase.

    "If the contract is signed, it will be the third Russia-built submarine handed over to the Indian Navy," he said. "For the first time India leased a Russian nuclear submarine for ten years back in the early 1980s. In 2012 the Indian Navy leased Russia’s K-152 Nerpa submarine of project 971. This is a customary and well-tested way of cooperation by our countries in the military-technical sphere."

    According to the Russian source, the submarine will undergo fundamental upgrade in line with the customer’s requirements at the Amur shipyards, where it is at the moment. The repair, upgrade and testing work and the Indian crew’s training are to be completed by 2018.

    The Discussion on lease of Akula II class submarine Kashalot K-322 nuclear power submarine of project 971 Shchuk has been ongoing since Jan 2015
    http://vpk.name/news/124992_Indiya_v..._Kashalot.html

    Индия начала переговоры с Россией об аренде атомной подводной лодки К-322 «Кашалот» проекта 971 «Щука-Б», сообщает «Интерфакс» со ссылкой на источник в российском оборонно-промышленном комплексе. В случае, если стороны подпишут договор до конца 2015 года, корабль может быть поставлен заказчику уже в 2018 году.

    По словам источника агентства, прежде чем подлодка будет сдана в аренду, она пройдет модернизацию в соответствии с требованиями индийского флота. Работы будут производиться Амурским судостроительным заводом, где сейчас и находится К-322. В общей сложности на доработку «Кашалота», его испытания и обучение индийского экипажа потребуется три года. Министерство обороны Индии рассматривает возможность аренды атомной подлодки сроком на десять лет.

    О том, что Индия рассматривает возможность аренды подлодки проекта 971, стало известно в декабре 2014 года. Тогда министр обороны Индии Манохар Паррикар заявил, что военное ведомство рассматривает два варианта: продление сроков аренды подводной лодки «Чакра» (К-152 «Нерпа») проекта 971 или аренду второго корабля проекта «Щука-Б». О сроках принятия окончательного решения Паррикар тогда не говорил.

    Также сообщалось, что индийское военное ведомство заинтересовалось возможностью аренды подводной лодки «Ирбис» проекта 971И, закладка которой состоялась в 1994 году. Готовность корабля с заводским номером 519 оценивается в 46-48 процентов; на момент заморозки строительства на Амурском судостроительном заводе в 2011 году был сформирован прочный корпус подлодки. Ранее Индия заявляла о готовности рассмотреть вопрос о финансировании достройки подлодки и последующей ее аренде.

    В настоящее время на вооружении ВМС Индии стоит подлодка «Чакра», построенная в России по проекту 971 «Щука-Б». Договор о лизинге корабля был подписан в 2004 году, а его стоимость составила около 980 миллионов долларов (изначально она была определена на уровне 650 миллионов долларов). Поставка этого корабля заказчику регулярно откладывалась; контрактом от 2004 года предполагалось, что Индия получит «Чакру» в 2008-м.

    Google Translate version=>
    India began negotiating with Russia to lease nuclear submarine K-322 "Sperm Whale" Project 971 "Pike-B", reports "Interfax" referring to a source in the Russian military-industrial complex. If the parties sign a contract until the end of 2015, the ship may be delivered already in 2018.

    According to the source agency, before the submarine is leased, it will be modernized in accordance with the requirements of the Indian Navy. Work will be performed Amur shipyard, where now is the K-322. A total revision "sperm whale", its testing and training of Indian crew will take three years. Indian Defense Ministry is considering the possibility of renting a nuclear submarine for a period of ten years.

    The fact that India is considering the possibility of renting the submarine Project 971, became known in December 2014. Then the Indian Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar said that the Defense Ministry is considering two options: the extension of the lease of the submarine "Chakra" (K-152 "Nerpa") project 971 or rent the second ship of the "Pike-B." On the timing of the final decision Parrikar then spoke.

    It was also reported that the Indian Defense Ministry interested in the possibility of renting the submarine "IRBIS" Project 971I tab which took place in 1994. Willingness to ship the serial number 519 is estimated at 46-48 per cent; at the time of freezing construction in the Amur shipyard in 2011 it was formed the submarine pressure hull. Earlier, India declared its readiness to consider funding the completion of the submarine and its subsequent lease.

    Currently, the Indian Navy is the submarine "Chakra", built in Russia for the project 971 "Pike-B." The contract on leasing the ship was signed in 2004 and the cost was about $ 980 million (it was originally set at $ 650 million). The delivery of this ship was postponed to the customer on a regular basis; the contract of 2004 it was assumed that India will "Chakra" in 2008.

    NEW DELHI, October 26. /TASS/. An agreement on leasing another Russian nuclear-powered submarine to India is to be signed at the Russian-Indian summit in December, a source at India’s Defense Ministry told TASS.
    The possibility of leasing a second submarine from Russia will be studied when India’s Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar will visit Moscow next week," the source said. "Parrikar will hold talks on this strategic project with his Russian counterpart Sergey Shoigu. After the ten-year contract is signed another two or three years will be required for upgrading the submarine in keeping with India’s requirements," he said.
    Over the past 45 years Russia and India have established reliable, time-tested strategic ties in the field of defence. India’s armed forces are equipped with Soviet and Russian military hardware 70%, the source said, adding that Russia had always provided its best military hardware to India.

    What India is Buying to Guard Against Chinese Missile Attacks

    http://www.ndtv.com/india-news/what-...-lateststories

    NEW DELHI: Ahead of the visit of Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar to Russia tomorrow, the decks have been cleared for the acquisition of what is widely considered the world's most advanced anti-ballistic missile system - the S-400.

    Considered a ballistic missile shield, the S-400 is designed to protect key installations such as nuclear reactors, population centres and government installations and can intercept enemy missile more than 400 kilometres away. The cost of the acquisition and the number of S-400 systems India will acquire is not known at this stage.

    In an interview to ITAR-TASS ahead of his departure tomorrow, Mr Parrikar has said he hopes to finalise the S-400 deal with Russia by the time Prime Minister Narendra Modi visits Moscow in December.

    Mr Parrikar has also made it clear that India stands committed to investing and being a partner in the development of the stealth Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft (FGFA), a Sukhoi designed fighter presently being test flown in Russia. India has reportedly not been happy with the work share it was allotted in what was thought to be a joint-development project worth $30 billion. Speaking to ITAR-TASS, Mr Parrikar has said, "I have directed my officers to commence the negotiations as early as possible and close the first stage so that we can proceed further."

    Though details have not yet been confirmed, India is also likely to sign a deal for the acquisition of a second Akula-2 class nuclear attack submarine from Russia and three Krivak class frigates which are in various stages of completion.

    The Defence Minister's agenda for his Russia visit comes as the government's Defence Acquisition Council cleared defence projects worth more than Rs. 15,000 crores.

    A few key items which were cleared include upgrading the Indian Air Force's two decade old Il-76 transport jets with new avionics and re-engining its fleet of six Il-78 air to air refuellers. This will cost Rs. 4300 crores.

    The Indian Army will acquire two regiments of 'Made-in-India' Pinaka multi-barrel rocket launchers for Rs. 3300 crores. Each regiment will come with 18 Pinaka launchers and associated systems.

    The Navy will acquire four 3500 ton multi-utility vessels which will be built in India. This is likely to cost Rs. 2800 crores. These are unarmed vessels to be used for non-combat roles.

    The Indian Air Force will digitise its existing squadrons of Russian Pechora missiles in an ambitious Rs. 1800 crore project, tenders for which will be sent out to Indian firms. Old analogue systems in the three-decade old Pechora surface-to-air missiles will be replaced by more modern and reliable digitised processors, data-links and other systems.

    INS Kalvari, First of Scorpene Class Submarines, Tests Water: 10 Facts
    http://www.ndtv.com/cheat-sheet/scor...rom=home-india

    Here is your 10-point cheatsheet on the Kalvari:
    The diesel-electric submarine weighs 1550 tonnes, is 6.2 meters in diameter and 67 metres long.
    The six Scorpene submarines are being built by the state-run Mazgaon Docks Limited or MDL in Mumbai in collaboration with DCNS of France in a $3.6 billion (Rs. 20,000 crore approximately) contract signed in October 2005.
    The Kalvari is likely to be commissioned in September 2016 after a year of sea trials.
    30% of the equipment on the Kalvari is made in India. The pressure hull of the submarine has been manufactured by MDL.
    The sub will carry anti-ship torpedoes and missiles.
    The other five submarines will be delivered one every nine months.
    The project has over-shot both time and budget. MDL officials today said they expect to complete the order by 2020.
    India's Navy currently has 13 ageing diesel-electric submarines, only half of which are operational at any given time due to refits.
    To replace a nearly 30-year-old fleet hit by a run of accidents, Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government has ordered an accelerated tendering process to build six conventional diesel-electric submarines at an estimated cost of Rs. 50,000 crore ($8.1 billion), in addition to the Scorpenes.
    The country's first indigenously built nuclear submarine, INS Arihant joins the fleet late next year.
    =>India should have R&D program for indigenous development of diesel SSK. French submarine is atleast 2 times costlier..

    Indian govt have spent 10+billion $in 30 yrs on ATV- "advanced technology vessel" project on Nuclear submarine development.

    Why not spend 1 billion $ in developing technology for Diesel electric submarine

    India to Lease Another Nuclear Submarine From Russia


    The Indian Navy will lease another nuclear-powered submarine from Russia, TASS reports. The 10-year lease agreement will likely be signed at the Russian-Indian summit in December, according to a source at India’s Defense Ministry.

    India’s Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar will meet Russia’s Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu next week in Moscow to discuss details.

    “Parrikar will hold talks on this strategic project with his Russian counterpart Sergey Shoigu. After the ten-year contract is signed another two or three years will be required for upgrading the submarine in keeping with India’s requirements,” the source told TASS.

    The Russian submarine likely to be handed over to the Indian Navy will be the Kashalot K-322 nuclear-powered attack submarine (NATO classification Akula II-class), a ship that has served in Russia’s Pacific Fleet since early 1989 and is currently under repair.

    The 8,140-ton Kashalot has a submerged speed of 30 knots and an operating depth of 530 meters. It holds a crew of 73 and is equipped with four 650 millimeter and four 533 millimeter torpedo tubes. According to the website RusNavy.com, the submarine achieved a Russian navy record in the summer of 1991 by trailing foreign submarines for over 14 days without interruption.

    The likely transfer date of the Kashalot will be in late 2018, given that it will take approximately three years to modernize and test the boat, as well as to train an Indian submarine crew for it.

    The Kashalot would not be the first Russian submarine to enter the service of the Indian Navy. “If the contract is signed, it will be the third Russia-built submarine handed over to the Indian Navy,” a Russian military source at the Russian embassy in New Delhi explained to TASS.

    “For the first time India leased a Russian nuclear submarine for ten years back in the early 1980s. In 2012 the Indian Navy leased Russia’s K-152 Nerpa submarine of project 971. This is a customary and well-tested way of cooperation by our countries in the military-technical sphere.”

    The K-152 Nerpa, rechristened INS Chakra, was inducted in March 2012.

    The Indian Navy’s first indigenously developed ballistic missile nuclear submarine (SSBN), INS Arihant, the lead vessel of the Indian Navy’s future fleet of four (some media reports say five) Arihant-class SSBNs, is based on the Russian Project 971 Akula I-class nuclear-powered attack boats.

    As I reported before, readiness rates within the Indian Navy’s submarine fleet are below 40 percent. On paper, the fleet currently consists of 15 boats: nine Russian SSK Kilo-class (Sindhugosh), four locally-built SSK U209 Shishumar-Class, the leased INS Chakra SSN, and the INS Arihant.
