Rendered against the West and India, said India and the future aircraft carrier will have more than 30 submarines
data for: the ongoing Indian Navy aircraft carrier battle groups and combat training
Recently, the Chinese navy has become the focus of the West. According to Australia’s “diplomat” magazine website on August 23 reported that the growing strength of the Chinese navy has sparked the concern of the United States and Japan, also raised awareness in India.
The report claimed that the proposed Navy aircraft carrier launched in China will not only to cruise the South China Sea and the western Pacific Ocean, but also to the Indian Ocean. To this end, the Indian Navy is stepping up to create a variety of equipment to be addressed. Rendered in the Western media, the “aircraft carrier in the Indian fight” seems in sight.
incite the Indian Navy to counter China
the West about China’s naval build aircraft carriers speculation gradually heated up. “Diplomat” has even pretentiously guess “for the construction of the Central Military Commission has two new nuclear-powered aircraft carrier the green light.”
The report also mentions China to Ukraine to buy the “Kuznetsov” carrier class “Kuznetsov” was being modified. 2017 Chinese Navy will have three aircraft carriers, will be deployed in the South China Sea, Western Pacific and Indian Ocean, China has become the issue to the outside world “superpower” of the signal.
“diplomat” in the media between China and India focused on rendering the so-called “naval confrontation.” The article said that a strong Chinese navy has been quite concerned that India, India is stepping up the development of effective “anti-system equipment” — transformation in Russia, “Admiral Gorshkov” aircraft carrier and its own “Wei Kelan special “aircraft carrier.
aircraft carrier battle groups to improve, India is the development of advanced surface ships and submarines.
India was passed in March 2009 aimed at creating the next generation of destroyers “15B projects”, while code-named “15A project” 3 “Calcutta” class destroyers are under construction; Indian Navy’s stealth frigate a self-produced “Shivalik” class ship was first launched in April this year, follow-up, the No. 2 and 3 ship-ship construction work has entered the final stage.
the same time, India was in full swing to build at least four nuclear submarines, including the first self-produced nuclear submarine fleet – “body count” was already launched. India also plans to at least 2030, with 30 submarines.
view of the future of the Indian Navy’s “strength”, “diplomat,” the article that “naval race in the Asia Pacific and Japan behind the United States, needs India’s support.”
weakness behind the Indian Navy
the outside, it seems India can take advantage of relaxed international environment in the short term to achieve the dream of building a powerful navy, and thus control the Indian Ocean. But in fact, India bought short cuts “a strong navy” is not the best policy.
Although India has earlier Asian carrier within the country, but bought second-hand aircraft carrier to the Indian Navy, the British brought a lot of trouble. According to the U.S., “Strategy Page” Web site Aug. 13 disclosure, purchased second-hand aircraft from the United Kingdom not only waste of money to upgrade and maintain its carrier-based aircraft also plagued with problems. India, Government investigators have found that Navy aircraft carrier equipped with a “Sea Harrier”, only 40% of the fleet of aircraft to meet mission requirements. Even more outrageous is that the “Sea Harrier” with the bomb is over futures, and its 30 mm cannon ammunition only meager reserves, and even mounted air to air missiles until 2003 conducted live firing. “Sea Harrier” the accident rate is also high in the past 20 years, the Indian Navy in the incident was supposed to the 30 the Chinese fighters, leaving only 11 currently in service. Visible and carrier-based aircraft carrier bought is not easy to use.
carrier battle group as soon as possible with the other core equipment – nuclear submarines, the Indian Navy to take a two-pronged strategy: from the Russian leased equipped with advanced torpedoes and cruise missiles, “Akula” two attack submarine “seal”, and ballistic missile submarines built in the country, “body count” numbers. However, “seal” in the shakedown period, the fire control system failure occurred, emitting fire with the freon gas lead submarine of 20 suffocation death of 21 people were injured. The “body count” was also questioned as not installed nuclear reactors, not missiles “shell.” In addition, so that made India proud, “Shivalik” class stealth frigates always adhering to the “mix and match” style, integrating France, Russia, Israel and other countries technology and weaponry, although the firepower, but the bridge laying on the impact of a wide range of Russian radar stealth ship of the overall effect. Can be seen, India’s navy obvious when the “puffiness” problems.
contrast, the pace of China’s naval modernization is more solid. In the emerging shipbuilding industry support, the progressive development of the aircraft and its carrier aircraft, advanced frigates, destroyers and nuclear submarines and other equipment, and adhere to self-reliance and localization of the rise.
Indian maritime strategy does not conflict
India to build a powerful navy, mainly to control the Indian Ocean. Western media often render even the Indian national “interest in the Chinese navy in the Indian Ocean,” and called on the United States, India and Japan together to respond to the Chinese navy.
recent warming of US-Indian military cooperation that some Western analysts see the so-called “US-India joint anti-China” hopes, however, careful analysis of such cooperation will find dubious. U.S. tried to sell India F-18, F-16 fighter jets, but did not refer to the most suitable Indian Navy’s F-35 carrier aircraft, while India chose instead an old friend Russia’s MiG-29K carrier-based aircraft.
Some analysts pointed out that in the United States, the Indian Ocean is to control the international maritime energy transport line, an important area and will not be allowed to encroach on their sites by others.
the U.S. military in the Indian Ocean island of Diego Garcia to build a military base, you can deploy stealth bombers, nuclear submarines and aircraft carriers, the ability to control the Indian Ocean is much stronger than the Indian Navy.
In fact, China just want the protection of international maritime security of energy transportation lines, will not render as far away as the West to send warships to the Indian Ocean rivalry with India, the Indian military is likely to have heart to know belly out, it played up “China threat theory Navy,” but to find a pretext to expand the Navy.
