Russian rubbish? India reportedly disappointed with stealth fighters from Moscow

By Maxim Lott/
Published January 24, 2014/
FoxNews.com





Is the Russian arms industry getting soft?

Despite initial high expectations, the Indian Air Force appears to be souring on a joint development deal with Russia for a new fifth-generation fighter jet, according to the Business Standard, a major Indian business publication. The Russian prototype is "unreliable, its radar inadequate, its stealth features badly engineered,” said Indian Air Force Deputy Air Marshall S Sukumar at a Jan. 15 meeting, according to minutes obtained by the Business Standard.

That contrasts sharply with high hopes voiced by the Indian government when the joint project, to which the Indian government has contributed $6 billion, began.

“[The new plane] will have advanced features such as stealth, supercruise, ultra-maneuvrability, highly integrated avionics suite, enhanced situational awareness, internal carriage of weapons and Network Centric Warfare capabilities,” the Indian government said in a December 2010 press release. Those are all hallmarks of “fifth generation” aircraft.

The Indian Air Force did not respond to a request for comment.

But it is hardly surprising that the invisible-to-radar Russian fighter planes don't quite live up to the billing, according to defense experts reached by FoxNews.com.

“The Russians are certainly not up to speed in avionics,” Robbin Laird, who has served as a consultant to the Marine Corps and Air Force and started the website Second Line of Defense, told FoxNews.com. “For them to pull off a stealth airframe, and for it to actually be stealthy, the engine technology has to be very good. Americans have done it with the F-22 and F-35. But it’s not easy to do. No one has done it but ourselves.”

India is the largest arms importer in world, according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, and its military import large amounts from both Russia and western countries.

“The Indians for a long time have split their fighter industry between western work and Russian work,” Laird said.

“Clearly they want to go more Western because they recognize that the Russian stuff just isn't up to the western standards. You only have so much money to go around, and like everybody else they've got financial pressures,” he added.

Other security experts said that India has a history of incompetence when it comes to military procurement, and so it did not necessarily reflect badly on Russia.

“India has had so many problems absorbing modern equipment and supporting it that it’s difficult to know whether it says anything about the Russian systems at all,” Anthony Cordesman, who has served as a consultant for the State and Defense departments and who holds the Burke Chair in Strategy at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, told FoxNews.com.

Laird said that the Indians may be souring on the Russian deal in part to save funds so they can build more French-designed Dassault Rafale fighter jets, which can be built relatively quickly, unlike the still-to-be-designed “fifth-generation” planes under development with the Russians.

The Rafale is a very nice aircraft, and they'll look at all the stuff the French are putting on that aircraft, and they'll look at the Russian stuff and say, why am I going down that path? Do I trust the Russians really are going to reach to the standards we set?”

Laird said that India would be best off purchasing the already-developed fifth-generation Lockheed Martin F-35 – but that the United States government had not given permission for such a sale, even though Indian officials had asked several times to be able to consider the plane.

“If they get a chance to really look at the F35, they would want it," Laird said. "The Indians have requested 3 times to talk to people about the F-35B, which is the true revolutionary aircraft -- and the administration never answered the mail, they've blown them off, it's typical of the Obama administration. We love our allies except if you want anything.”

He added that India may in fact not be at the level where it should be trusted with F-35s, however, so the administration would be right to turn them down. But he argued that the F-35 is ahead of what Russia has.

“The Russians are good aircraft designers, and they know how to build an agile aircraft, and [the new plane they are working on] is a step forward the path of more agility and flexibility, but the problem is -- it's not all about the frame, it's about what your put in it. The F35 can see around itself, 360 degrees, can see a missile take off 820 miles away, it has a radar that's extraordinary, and the systems are integrated. The Russians I think are nowhere near that at this point.”

Laird admitted that there was a kind of “ho-hum” aspect to those types of features, but said that the information they provide to pilots and commanders would pay off in a combat situation.

Cordesman also said that he was unsurprised by the Indian complaints, given what he knew about Russian air capabilities.

“They’re very good at building airplanes,” Cordesman said. “The problem that Russia, since the collapse of the former Soviet Union, has been putting out the military equivalent of show cars. They look good, but it isn’t always clear how practical they are and how many of the specifications they can actually meet.”

Parece que algunos podrían haber sobrevalorado a los ruskies. Aunque ya se tenia indicios, cuando algunos del alto mando ruso se habían quejado de lo mismo, antes de ser rápidamente pasados al retiro (General Nikolai Yegorovich Makarov).

Arjun Mk II

Ya han aparecido las primeras imágenes del tanque indio Arjun Mk II. El tanque participó en el desfile que conmemora la independencia de la India en 1947.






Esta versión cuenta con varias mejoras:

1) Capacidad de lanzar misiles.
2) Cúpula panorámica con cámara térmica para el comandante.
3) Cámara térmica para el conductor.
4) Más munición.
5) Munición APFSDS con más penetración.
6) Dispositivo alternativo para el MRS muzzle (reference sight).
7) cartuchos autocombustibles hechos en resina.
Cool Depósito-compartimento para 10 proyectiles.
9) Blindaje reactivo ERA.
10) Pintura anti IR/térmica.
11) Estación remota para ametralladora AAA.
12) Sistema de alerta láser (ALWCS).
13) Asiento para conductor enganchado al techo del chasis (para mejorar la protección antimina).
14) Mejoras en la mira del artillero.
15) Nuevo sistema de navegación
16) Nueva transmisión final con radio de reducción diferente.
17) Nuevo sistema de chasis.
18) Nuevas orugas.
19) Kit de desminado.

Sin duda se trata de una mejora notable de la primera versión, pero el tanque llega muchos años tarde. El cañón de ánima rallada es anacrónico hoy en día y no puede utilizar munición OTAN o del Pacto de Varsovia. Esto significa que se debe de desarrollar munición específica. Con poco más de 200 tanques en servicio, no es algo muy flexible.

Otro problema es que muchos de los componentes son de otros países, a pesar de que el tanque se vende como "indio". El motor es alemán, y la dirección de tiro israelí. La capacidad de lanzar misiles se consigue mediante el kit israelí LAHAT. Esto ha sido utilizado en muchos debates. A no ser de que se adquieran gran cantidad de Arjun, los elementos deberán seguir siendo importados. Este es un tema muy sensible porque en 1998 la comunidad internacional impuso sanciones por realizar pruebas nucleares.

Finalmente, el mercado de tanques está saturado. Es muy poco probable que el tanque llegue a ser exportado. La misma India opera el T-90, de similares prestaciones y más barato. Su menor peso lo convierte en más práctico para la infraestructura del país. De hecho, se está contemplando la adquisición de otro paquete de la versión más reciente, T-90MS.

First Indian MiG-29 Fighter Jet Lands on Vikramaditya



MOSCOW, February 7 (RIA Novosti) – An Indian MiG-29 naval jet landed on a refitted former Soviet aircraft carrier Friday, marking the first such operation since the ship was delivered by Russia to the south Asian nation earlier this year.

“An exciting event took place today – the first landing of an [Indian] MiG-29 piloted by an Indian pilot on the Vikramaditya,” Russia’s United Shipbuilding Corporation vice president Igor Ponomarev told reporters at the ongoing DEFEXPO-2014 exhibition in New Delhi.

The Vikramaditya, formerly known as the Admiral Gorshkov, was handed over to the Indian navy on November 16 at the Semvash shipbuilder and arrived at a naval base in Kanwar in the beginning of January.

The process of the ship’s official commissioning will take between three and four months, according to the Indian navy. A team of Russian specialists arrived onboard the ship and will stay in India for a year to fix any possible glitches if needed.

The Indian Navy commissioned its first squadron of MiG-29K/KUB carrier-based fighters in 2013.

The squadron, dubbed the “Black Panthers,” comprises 12 single-seat MiG-29Ks and four two-seat MiG-29KUBs, which Russia supplied under a 2004 contract with the Indian Defense Ministry.

The aircraft have until now been stationed at an airbase in Dabolim, in the state of Goa on India's west coast.

In January 2010, New Delhi and Moscow signed a deal worth $1.2 billion for the delivery of an additional 29 MiG-29Ks to the Indian navy.

The Vikramaditya is expected to carry up to 24 MiG-29K/KUB fighter jets.

India has built with Russia’s assistance a training facility for naval pilots to practice aircraft carrier operations.

The facility, known as NITKA, features a takeoff ramp and arrestor cables to enable naval aviators to practice high-precision and high-acceleration takeoffs and landings.

La India frena la compra de cazas franceses

La realización del contrato millonario en el que la India planeaba comprar ciento veintiséis cazas franceses Rafale quedó suspendida. Es probable que la operación no llegue a materializarse este año ni el siguiente.

http://spanish.ruvr.ru/2014_02_21/La-India-frena-la-compra-de-cazas-franceses-2991/

Parece ser que finalmente nadie quiere hacerse con el caza francés. Por algo será.

Francia se disparo feo en el pie.

'Empowered' French team likely to visit India for Rafale deal

NEW DELHI: A French 'empowered' delegation is likely to visit India this month to carry forward the much- delayed talks for the multi-billion dollar contract for 126 Rafale fighter aircraft as India looks at the option of buying more Sukhoi-30 MKI warplanes in case the deal falls through.

Recalling his discussions with his French counterpart last month, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar said talks are on over the deal.

He said French Defence Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian had intended to send an "empowered person" for this.

Sources said a French delegation could visit India this month.

Talking about the delays in sealing the contract, Defence Ministry sources admitted there were problems and said India could consider buying more Russian-made Sukhoi-30 planes if the proposed deal with France collapsed.

France, on the other hand, is confident of signing the contract and says differences can be sorted out. India and France had agreed to fast-track the negotiations in December.

The issue came up for discussion during the delegation- level talks on December 3 between Parrikar and his French counterpart.

India had in 2012 selected Rafale combat planes but the final negotiations are still continuing between the Defence Ministry and Dassault Aviation, maker of the aircraft.

The deal with India is a big one for the Rafale company as it will be the first mega export order for the aircraft.

As per the Request for Proposal (RFP), the first 18 jets planes are to be imported and the rest manufactured under licence by Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL)

Irkut aims to complete Su-30MKI deliveries to India in 2015

Jon Grevatt, Bangkok - IHS Jane's Defence Industry

The Irkut Corporation has stated that it will complete deliveries in 2015 of Sukhoi Su-30MKI multirole fighter kits to India's state-owned Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) as part of the Russian group's technology transfer obligations.

HAL has been licence building the Su-30MKI aircraft for the Indian Air Force (IAF) since 2000. Irkut said in a press release on 15 February that at the conclusion of deliveries later this year, the corporation would have transferred a total of 222 kits for assembly at HAL's Nashik facility in western India.

Supported by a "complete transfer of technology" Irkut said HAL is now manufacturing Su-30MKI parts from raw materials.

India encarga dos aviones ISTAR a Raytheon por 700 millones de euros



(defensa.com) La Fuerza Aérea India (IAF) ha encargado a la empresa estadounidense Raytheon dos aviones de Vigilancia, Inteligencia, Reconocimiento y Designación de Objetivos (ISTAR por sus siglas en inglés). Se trata de aeronaves diseñadas para la detección de objetivos en tierra, para ello irán dotados de un radar de barrido electrónico (Active Electronically Scanned Array o AESA) que pueda analizar grandes superficies de territorio e identificar objetivos estacionarios o en movimiento automáticamente. Así mismo la aeronave deberá enviar a tierra los datos para su explotación en tiempo real. Los aviones de este tipo operan buscando objetivos terrestres fijos o en movimiento de igual manera que actúan los AWACS con amenazas aéreas, gestionando el campo de batalla terrestre.

La IAF envió un Request for Information (RfI) a cuatro fabricantes en 2011, incluyendo a Boeing, BAE Systems, Elta y Raytheon. Finalmente se seleccionó la propuesta de Raytheon, que originalmente está basada en un avión Gulfstrean, aunque se ha ofrecido a la IAF la posibilidad de que elija una plataforma de su elección, que una vez incluidos los sistemas, tendrá un coste unitario de 350 millones de euros. Raytheon ha desarrollado una aeronave de este tipo equipada con el sistema ASTOR (Airbone Stand-Off Radar System) para la Fuerza Aérea y el Ejército de Tierra británico. El ASTOR va montado sobre un avión Bombardier y está dotado de un radar de apertura sintética, recibiendo en Reino Unido la denominación Sentinel R Mk1. (J.N.G.)
