 India shows a new frigate scheme as a destroyer


According to the Janes Defence Weekly website April 27th, Ma Zhi Gong shipyard intends to build 4 P17-A frigates, 3 of which are built at GardenReach shipyard. The P17-A map source on display in India: Janes Defence Weekly Although it has been enlarged by 2000 tons, India has built a class destroyer in Calcutta, so it is still an experience. The power of the P17-A is driven by the two general electric LM2500 gas turbine and two MAN12V28/33DSTC diesel fuel combined propelling device (CODOG), and the speed can reach 28 knots. It can cruise 5500 nautical miles under 18 cruising cruises or cruise 1000 nautical miles at 28 knots. The ship will equip 4 sets of 8 launcher vertical launchers, two sets to the bow and two sets to the rear of the chimney. The ship has two options for air defense in the future: the Israeli Barack -8 remote air defense launch system or the LR-SAM, Indias remote air to air missile system (this is a very old one). There is also a 8 Moss supersonic anti ship missile launcher in front of us. The ship uses the India license to produce the RBU6000 anti submarine rocket launcher and two, 3 with a 533 millimeter torpedo launcher for anti submarine, with a AK-630 and a Otto 76 mm quick fire gun in the naval gun. The ship will use an integrated mast with a India asset EltaMF-STAR active phased array radar to guide Barack -8 or India homemade LR-SAM missiles. Calcutta class destroyer, RBU-6000? 12 mounted on Kachin, equipped with antisubmarine rocket launcher. Observer network military commentators say that compared to the brutal India air force and the India army, the development strategy of the India navy has a lot of similarities with the development of the PLAs small step run warships, all of which are combined with the existing technology (of course for India as an alternative shelf product) to combine several mature technologies. The ship, and then revise the ship, the small step quickly run out of an improved ship to meet the requirements, such as the Delhi class destroyer (Project-15) to the Calcutta level (Project-15A), the liberation army is 054 to 054A level of development. However, India is limited by technology and national strength and can not buy 30 regular warships as frequently as the PLA. Although the P17-A is a frigate, but the number of drooping and positioning are close to the main destroyer, the development trend is also from the P-17 class frigate. Since India successful built a Calcutta class destroyer, from the normal way of technical development, the India Navy is a tradition. In the sense of noble soldier, P17-A chose a road that conforms to the national conditions. But the unfortunate thing is that, due to technical problems and national limitations, the India Navy, which chose to run small steps, still stumbles, and the limited upgrade of Calcutta still has many difficulties in construction, causing Calcutta to soak in the water for a long time: the first ship was planned to serve in 2010, and the result was 2014. The sea trial before the start of service led to Calcuttas dilemma of being behind in service. In the water for 10 years in Calcutta, at the beginning of the design, we also had the early combat effectiveness of our armys 052C. When we served, 052D was launched. The India Navy still lacks long-range surface air defense forces. The main force of the India Navy is still 3 Delhi destroyers and 3 Calcutta class destroyers, which have begun to lag behind the times. It is no wonder that India is to add more advanced active phased array radar to the new frigate. And more drooping, after all, the Indian army, which has limited technology, has fallen behind the times in the P17-A index, reaching the level of the 052Ds tonnage of 052C only and lagging behind the world average in radar and missile. If it is not designed to be a capital ship, it will also face the dilemma of backward service. But considering that Indias current P-15B plan is a similar target, just as the number of anti - ship anti - ship missiles doubles, the construction of the P17-A frigate is not out of the spectrum. But although the escalation of weapons and configuration is limited, it is also a challenge for India to magnify 2000 tons at a time. According to the experience that India has previously built the Calcutta level, the new radar P17-A will not be too smooth. After all, the navy is still looking at the comprehensive national strength. Not yet has a superstructure of the visa chaser South class destroyer.
