    New Delhi: Aiming to establish
    itself as a blue water force in
    real terms, Indian Navy will
    be inducting more than 90
    fighting platforms in another
    decade, including aircraft carrier INS Vikramaditya,
    which is likely to be
    commissioned later this year.
    "Under the Maritime
    Perspective Plan (MPP), around
    50 of these vessels are in various stages of construction
    at different shipyards in the
    country, while the contract
    for 45 more ships are being
    processed", Navy's Chief of
    Material, Vice Admiral G Mahadeven told reporters
    here.
    The 45 ships are either in the
    Request for Proposal (RFI)
    stage or discussions are going
    on for their prices with the vendors, he added. Out of the 50 ships which are
    in various stages of
    construction, four are being
    built by foreign shipyards. It
    includes INS Vikramaditya
    which is being constructed at Shevmash shipyard in Russia.
    Meanwhile, officials said that
    INS Vikramaditya is in the last
    stage of its refitment and will
    be ready for sea-trials in
    another one month's time. Among the three Teg-class
    frigates which are being
    constructed, one will be
    commissioned into the Navy
    on April 27. Navy is also
    procuring around 80 Fast Interceptor Craft (FIC) under
    the MPP.
    For construction of four
    Landing Platform Decks (LPDs)
    worth Rs 16,000 crore RFP has
    been issued to five Indian shipyards including a private
    one.
    To increase its strategic depth,
    a number of Counter Mine
    Ship, Floating Dry Dock,
    Submarine Attack Crafts, Deep Submersible Vessels are also in
    the process of negotiations
    with the vendors and
    shipyards.

    You're the most ignorant pathetic excuse for a life, your country could only wish this submarine was offered at Russia's disposal for you. Akula II is a second class submarine?

    1st class or 2nd class-does it matter??I mean K 152 is the sole nuke sub in IOR.Why do we need to respond to their every trash talk??
    By the way,I'm more eagerly waiting for the 9 indigenous SSNs to be constructed,onlx then we will have a credible SSN fleet because the main purpose of Nerpa is training of IN suamariners and sanitise the trial area of Arihant SSBN.Due to Russian obligation to the various international traties,during any future war time the rules of engagement of Nerpa will most probably be severely restricted surveillance and self defence only.By the way,in some ways the Nerpa is indeed '2nd
    class' when compared to their American counterparts.While most of the American SSNs and SSBNs now are fitted with modern bulb shaped bow mounted long range ELF sonars(most probably developed by the Northop Grumman),the Nerpa still uses cilidrical shaped legacy low frequency sonars (same as China) which is of 80's technology and even the Indian VLF sonars like Ushus,NAGAN mk2,Humsa NG etc are much more sophisticated systems.Hope that the indigenous SSNs and SSBNs would be fitted with modern sensons regardless of their origin.
