Zitat:India Commissions New Sub-Killer Stealth Warship

The third out of a class of four anti-submarine warfare stealth corvettes was commissioned into the Indian Navy this week. [...] The third of four planned anti-submarine Kamorta-class stealth corvettes, INS Kiltan, was commissioned into the Indian Navy on October 16 during a ceremony held at Naval Dockyard Visakhapatnam in the Indian State of Andhra Pradesh, the Indian Ministry of Defense (MoD) announced in a statement today. [...]

The 3,500-ton INS Kiltan “is one of the most potent warships to have been constructed in India,” according to the Indian MoD. The stealth warship has been specifically designed for anti-submarine warfare, but they can also be deployed in anti-surface warfare (AsuW) and anti-air warfare (AAW) missions. [...] The INS Kiltan is reportedly the first Indian warship with a superstructure entirely made of composite material. The ship has been fitted with a modern 16-cell vertical launching system (VLS) for firing Barak surface-to-air missiles or locally produced long-range surface-to-air missiles system (LRSAM). The INS Kiltan also features four heavyweight torpedo tube launchers, a pair of 12-barreled RBU6000 rocket depth-charge launchers, and a 76-millimeter medium range gun, as well as two multi-barrel 30 mm guns as close-in-weapon system (CIWS).

A Scotland-based company expects to supply two third-generation deep search and rescue vehicles (DSRVs) to the Indian Navy by June following the successful completion of harbour acceptance trials. The two complete flyaway submarine rescue vehicles are to be delivered under a £193-million contract awarded to JFD, a leading underwater capability provider, in March 2016.

The systems include launch and recovery systems equipment, “transfer under pressure” systems, and all logistics and support equipment required to operate the DSRVs. [...] Following the harbour acceptance trials, the DSRV will be fully integrated with the rest of the rescue system at a site in Glasgow, including the offshore handling system, intervention suite and 90-person decompression facilities.

Ben Sharples, India DSRV project director at JFD, said: “The completion of the initial harbour acceptance trials for the first DSRV, to be delivered to the Indian Navy, is an important step in the delivery of this contract. [...] JFD said the system had been developed to maximise the chances of successfully rescuing the crew of a distressed submarine. The full certified systems are due to be delivered to Indian Navy in June, it said.

A total of 72 Indian Navy personnel have also been trained by JFD at a facility in Scotland to operate the vessels. The Indian Navy, which operates a mix of Russian and Western submarines, has for long projected a need for deep sea rescue vessels to cope with possible accidents.
