India Chooses U.S.-Built Javelin Anti-Tank Missile
NEW DELHI - The Indian Army has decided to buy the Javelin anti-tank guided missile (ATGM), Defence Ministry sources here said.
The decision comes within a month of media reports that Pakistan had included the Javelin on its wish list of U.S. weapons it wants to purchase. Senior Indian Defence Ministry officials had favored buying Israeli-made Spike ATGMs until those reports.

India to design and manufacture entirely new MBT
DRDO to develop army's next-generation tank
Ajai Shukla / New Delhi August 10, 2010, 0:31 IST

With most of our armour unfit to fight at night, the project is crucial.

In March this year, during trials in the Rajasthan desert, the Defence R&D Organisation’s Arjun tank conclusively outperformed the Russian T-90, the army’s showpiece. Buoyed by that success and by the army’s consequent order for 124 additional Arjuns, the DRDO is now readying to develop India’s next-generation tank, currently termed the Future Main Battle Tank (FMBT).

While costs are still being evaluated, the projections are mind-boggling. The development cost alone could be Rs 5,000 crore. Then, the replacement cost of the Indian Army’s 4,000 tanks — at a conservative Rs 25 crore per FMBT — adds to Rs 1,00,000 crore. The bulk of this would flow, over years of production, to Tier-I and Tier-II suppliers from small and medium industries.

For the first time, the DRDO has outlined the FMBT project’s contours. Talking exclusively to Business Standard, DRDO chief and Scientific Advisor to the Defence Minister, V K Saraswat, revealed, “While the Future Infantry Combat Vehicle (FICV) has been handed over to private industry, the DRDO will develop the FMBT. We need about seven-eight years from the time the project is formally sanctioned. The army and the DRDO have already identified the major features of the FMBT, which are quite different from the Arjun. While the Arjun is a 60-tonne tank, the FMBT will be lighter… about 50 tonnes. It will be a highly mobile tank.”

Vital project
The FMBT project, says the military, is crucial for India’s future battle readiness. As army chief, General Deepak Kapoor pronounced 80 per cent of India’s tank fleet unfit to fight at night, which is when most tank battles take place. The bulk of our fleet, some 2,400 obsolescent Russian T-72s, are being shoddily patched up (see Business Standard, Feb 3, ‘Army to spend billions on outdated T-72 tanks’). More modern T-90 tanks were procured from Russia in 2001, shorn of crucial systems to reduce prices, after parliamentary dissent threatened to derail the contract (Business Standard, Feb 4, ‘Piercing the army’s armour of deception’). Only now, after nine years of stonewalling, has Russia transferred the technology needed to build the T-90 in India.

Urgently in need of capable tanks, the army has worked with DRDO to finalise a broad range of capabilities for the FMBT. These have been formalised in a document called the Preliminary Specifications Qualitative Requirement (PSQR). The detailed specifications of the FMBT, once finalised, will be listed in General Staff Qualitative Requirements (GSQR).

Amongst the capabilities being finalised for the GSQR are: active armour, which will shoot down enemy anti-tank projectiles before they strike the FMBT; extreme mobility, which makes the FMBT much harder to hit; the capability to operate in a nuclear-contaminated battlefield without exposing the crew to radiation; and the networked flow of information to the FMBT, providing full situational awareness to the crew, even when “buttoned down” inside the tank.

Also being finalised is the FMBT armament, a key attribute that determines a tank’s battlefield influence. The Arjun already has a heavy 120mm ‘main gun’, and two small-calibre machine guns; the recently ordered batch of 124 Arjuns will also fire anti-tank missiles through their main gun. The army wants all of those for the FMBT, with ranges enhanced through technological improvements.

However, the DRDO chief ruled out an electromagnetic gun, the next generation in high-velocity guns towards which armament technology aspires. “The Future MBT is not so far in the future,” Saraswat quipped.

FICV, too
With the FMBT project squarely on its agenda, the DRDO also envisages a major role in developing the FICV. Says the DRDO chief, “The FICV is not just a conventional armoured vehicle for transporting soldiers. It involves advanced technologies and multidisciplinary integration, which private industry has never done. Only the DRDO and the Ordnance Factory Board (OFB) have that experience. DRDO teams are already thinking about the technologies that should go into the FICV. But this is only to support private industry in making the FICV project a success.”

While private industry weighs its options about where to manufacture the FICV, the DRDO has already chosen the Heavy Vehicle Factory (HVF) in Avadi —- the OFB facility that builds the Arjun —- as the FMBT production line.

“It will definitely be produced in HVF. I see no way that we can go away from HVF,” says Saraswat. “The HVF will work with us from the preliminary design of the FMBT, so that we can go from prototype to mass production without any hiccups.”

India: Assam Police modernises with Uzis, MP5s
Guwahati, Dec 8 (IANS) Vintage World War I era firearms like the .303 rifles have become a thing of the past with police commandos in insurgency-hit Assam now equipped with sophisticated weapons like the Israeli Uzi and the German MP5 submachine guns to match the new face of urban terror.

'We have almost been able to phase out .303 rifles and replaced them with several sophisticated close-quarter and long-range weapons like Uzis to equip our forces so that combating terror becomes more effective,' Assam police chief Shankar Baruah said.

For long, the .303 rifles, accurate and good in the field, were used by the Assam Police, but with militants resorting to urban terrorism, realization dawned that the weapon was not good enough to be used while fighting rebels in cities.

'We need to buy more assault and combat rifles like the Uzi as fighting terrorism in the jungles and villages is different from populated cities where one would have to avoid collateral damage.'

The Israeli Uzi comes in various sizes from submachine guns to pistols and all the variants very accurate and easy to handle with optimum results.

The Heckler and Koch MP5 submachine gun is a lightweight, air-cooled, magazine-fed, delayed blowback operated, select-fire weapon that can be shoulder or hand fired and is invariably very accurate with sustained fire modes.

'The Uzi and the MP5 are weapons now used by elite anti-terror forces in most parts of the world as the volume of fire is greater and is very accurate and hence the in thing for security forces in tackling urban terror,' another senior police official said.

The wave of terror bombings in Assam in October 2008 had exposed how poorly equipped the state police force was - with World War I era firearms, defective bulletproof vests and insufficient numbers - to deal with heavily armed terrorists, say experts.

'We are also trying to get some aerial weapons to equip our forces for maximum results,' the police chief said.

In most Indian states, the police forces continue to fight with .303 rifles similar to the Lee Enfield weapons used by the British troops during World War I.

'There is need for specialization of the police force by imparting training and equipping them with more advanced weapons. Already the process is on,' Baruah said.

Even today, police in Assam wear plastic helmets and body protectors designed to ward off sticks and stones, rather than bullets as they fight terrorists armed with AK-47 rifles, pistols, grenades and RDX.

'The entire strategy and training module of the police force needs to be reformed, especially in view of the growing urban terror attacks seen in Assam and other places,' former Assam police chief Nishinath Changkakoty said.

Indian Army Looking New Assualt Rifle
As part of the Indian Army's phased future infantry soldier as a system (F-INSAS) programme to create a fully integrated infantry soldier, Army HQ has floated requirements [PDF] for a new assault rifle that will, potentially, be license-built in large numbers. A questionaire provided with RFI points to what the Army is looking for in its new ambidextrous assault rifle:

The Army has put down its preference for a modular assault rifle with changeable multiple caliber barrels to support 5.56x45mm, 7.62x39mm, 7.62x51mm, 6.8x43mm and 6.5 Grendel rounds. The rifle needs to have an integrated sighting system that includes a luminous tipped flip-up iron sight, telescopic sight and a holographic reflex sight with a visible laser illuminator. It clearly wants an advanced under-barrel grenade launcher with a standalone firing mode governed by a multipurpose fire control system.

India's First 'Tejas' Operational; Inducted into IAF
ANGALORE: India’s first Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) ‘Tejas’ is all set to join the select club of fighter jet today on Monday. Indian Air Force (IAF) on Monday for the first time flew Tejas for initial operational clearance (IOC). After its successful launch, India will achieve a significant milestone and join the countries making a fighter jet from scratch.
This would take place in the presence of Defence Minister A K Antony and Air Force chief Air Chief Marshal P V Naik and top defence and government officials. Ministry officials close to the development said that Tejas, after getting the clearance will take several flying missions and after that it will have to obtain its Final Operational Clearance (FOC). Thereafter, it will be finally inducted into IAF’s operational service, which is likely to happen by the end of 2012.
“This is the first time an indigenously designed and developed military fighter aircraft has been certified for air force operations,” state-run Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) official K. Jayaprakash Rao told reporters.

“This is a historic day for the burgeoning Indian aerospace industry and military aviation, as IOC signifies a major milestone in the design and development of the LCA ,” he added on the margins of the event.
India’s homegrown supersonic fighter jet, Tejas will form a 200-strong fleet for the IAF to replace the ageing Russian-made MiG-21 fleet and increase the squadron strength as a potent strike force by 2012.
India’s much awaited project, Tejas has been developed by the state-run Aeronautical Defence Agency (ADA) and manufactured by the Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) in Bangalore in partnership with a host of public-private aerospace firms.

Previously, the project was delayed due to various factors. Initially, it was affected by the US sanctions imposed in 1998 in wake of nuclear tests conducted by India. The delay resulted in rise of cost to Rs.5,778 crore from the initial estimate of Rs.3,300 crore.

Indian Navy commandos to get Israeli rifles
A team from the Israeli Military Industries (IMI), the manufacturer of the specialist weapons, will be in India to carry out joint inspection of the consignment's post-delivery quality to ensure the weapons are in fighting-fit condition.

"The lot of over 500 Tavor and 30 Galil rifles has arrived and the Israeli team will be here to jointly inspect the delivered weapons and for assembling them. The MARCOS will begin using these rifles and start training on them from this month," the official said. He did not wish to be identified because of ministry rules.

The defence ministry had placed the orders for the rifles for the MARCOS - their actual strength is classified - in 2008.

The two weapons are already in use with the Indian Army's special forces and the Indian Air Force's Garud special forces units. The army's special forces got about 3,000 of the Tavors and another 1,000 of the Galils some time in 2004, for which they had placed orders in 2002.

The Tavor, a 5.56mm calibre weapon of NATO specifications, is a 21st century assault rifle from IMI. The MARCOS have been using the indigenous INSAS rifles and the Russian Kalashnikov variants. The Tavor would also be a standard weapon for the force from now.

The Galil is a 7.62mm sniper weapon, again manufactured by IMI, popularly known as Galatz in the Israeli defence forces.

Russia may deliver first upgraded MiG to India in 2011

Russia could deliver the first modernized MiG-29 fighter jet to India as early as in 2011, the head of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) said on Wednesday.

India signed a $960 million contract with Russia in 2008 to upgrade its five squadrons of 69 MiG-29 fighters, which have been in service with the Indian Air Force (IAF) since mid-1980s.

"The first upgraded plane, I think, will be delivered in 2011," Mikhail Pogosyan said on the sidelines of the Aero India 2011 air show, which opened on Wednesday in Bangalore.

"The whole upgrade program will be carried out on schedule agreed with the Indian side, and it will take several years to implement it," Pogosyan said.

The upgrades include a new avionics kit, with the N-109 radar being replaced by a Phazatron Zhuk-M radar. The aircraft is also being equipped to enhance beyond-visual-range combat ability and for air-to-air refueling to increase flying time.

The upgraded aircraft will be armed with sophisticated air-to-air missiles, high-accuracy air-to-ground missiles and 'smart aerial' bombs.

In 2007, Russia also sold India's Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) a license to manufacture 120 RD-33 series 3 turbojet engines for the upgrade.

The first six aircraft are being upgraded in Russia while the remaining 63 will be refitted at the HAL facility in India.

Intia noussut maailman suurimmaksi aseostajaksi

julkaistu tänään klo 11:31, päivitetty tänään klo 11:45




Maailman kaikesta asekaupasta yhdeksän prosenttia suuntautuu Intiaan, kertoo Ruotsissa toimiva asekaupan valvontajärjestö Sipri. Maailman neljä suurinta aseostajamaata ovat kaikki Aasiassa.


Siprin tutkimus koskee asekauppaa vuosina 2006 - 10. Siprin laskelmien mukaan Intian jälkeen eniten aseita ostivat ulkomailta Kiina, Etelä-Korea (molemmat 6 prosentin osuudella), Pakistan (5 prosenttia) ja Kreikka (4 prosenttia).

Intia osti lähes kaiken aseistuksensa Venäjältä. Intia on viime vuosina lisännyt varsinkin hävittäjäkalustoaan ja hankkinut myös lentokoneiden tukialuksia.

Tälle vuodelle Intia on budjetoinut asemenoihin 32,5 miljardia dollaria. Intia puolustaa varustautumistaan Pakistanin ja Kiinan muodostamilla uhkilla samoin kuin sisäisillä epävarmuustekijöillä. Analyytikot arvelevat tosin, että maa haluaa myös kasvattaa alueellista ja myös globaalia vaikutusvaltaansa armeijaa vahvistamalla.

Tutkimusaikana Aasian maihin suuntautui 43 prosenttia kaikesta aseviennistä. Euroopan osuus oli 21, Lähi-idän 17, Amerikan 12 ja Afrikan 7 prosenttia.

Siprin tietojen mukaan maailman suurin aseviejämaa on Yhdysvallat noin 30 prosentin osuudella. Sen jälkeen tulevat Venäjä (23 prosenttia), Saksa (11 prosenttia), Ranska (7 prosenttia) ja Britannia (4 prosenttia).

Mailmalla asehankintoihin käytetty rahamäärä oli vuosina 2006 - 10 lähes neljänneksen suurempi kuin vuosina 2001 - 2005.

Tutkimuksesta ilmenee, että Libyan asevientikiellon päätyttyä vuonna 2003 monet maat kilpailivat Libyan aseostoista. Kilpailussa olivat mukana ainakin Britannia, Ranska, Italia ja Venäjä. Nyt aseita käytetään Libyan sisällisodassa.
