Re: Indian Naval News & Discussion - 22 April 2015

Has the construction of P-17a even started? Right now the P-15B's are ahead in construction. Any news on INS Chennai commissioning? It should be in a couple of months.

Re: Pakislamic LeT kill 8 CRPF in Ramzan greeting to India 2

I am hoping for a attack on the training camps or heck PA camp itself. ANA will be happy to oblige and join in the fun.

Re: Indian Naval News & Discussion - 22 April 2015

1250 ton is not a missile boat by any standards. Its a corvette. The question is are these different from the NGMV?

Maybe these are meant to replace the Veer class?

Re: Indian Naval News & Discussion - 22 April 2015

Earlier report from Aroor claimed the new gen corvettes were going to be 2500+ tonne. 1250 tonne boat can barely fit 4 brahmos and will require inclined launchers. I always thought using Kamortas hull with turbine engines and replacing the RBU's with Brahmos VLS would be the way to go.

Who said it was not detected. In the open seas what did you expect IN to do? Sink it?

Re: India-US Relations : News and Discussion- II

No strategic weapon system will ever be bought from US. Even US knows that. That's why there is no chance for F-18/35 or anything equivalent to S-400. India US defence deals will stay at transport aircrafts, drones and a few arty pieces level.

Who knows? Maybe Prahaar was tested under guise of the multiple Prithvi missiles. Prahaar would be ideal for IA and can be provided to ANA to counter the Pakis along with our upgraded grads (which will be replace by the new Pinaka-I-mk2).

If IN needs 3 operational CV's by 2022-24 they should order another Vikrant class soon. If they are ok waiting till 2030 for 3 CV's then go with 65K new design with EMAL by all means.
