Despite French Pressure, HAL Remains India’s Lead Integrator for the Rafale

India Begins Second Track for New Fighter

Since independence India has primarily relied on a mix of British and Russian equipment. Some of this is purchased direct from the suppliers but India has often established assembly facilities and shared manufacturing for some systems. This includes jet aircraft such as the MiG-27 and MiG-29 fighters acquired from Russia.

In the last two years as part of an attempt to rapidly upgrade the technological level of their weapon systems and to take advantage of the world armaments market India has been more willing to buy Western equipment direct. This includes maritime patrol aircraft and transports from U.S. contractors Boeing (BA) and Lockheed Martin (LMT) as well as working with Israeli and European companies.

One big contract that is winding its way through source selection is that for a new multi-role combat aircraft. India is reviewing proposals from Eurofighter, Rafael, SAAB, MiG, Boeing, and Northrop Grumman (NOC). These aircraft would most likely be made overseas but India does require offsets and investment in their economy.

This week India announced that it has signed a contract with the two Russian companies Sukhoi and Rosoboronexport to team with their own HAL to begin development of a new advanced fighter that would be based on the Russian T-50 aircraft but would be uniquely Indian. The initial contract is for about $295 million and would lead to the production of a fifth generation aircraft similar to the F-22 or Joint Strike Fighter.

The Indian military industry is taking on a tough project with this fighter program. These are about the most advanced systems to develop and put into production. This plan shows that India wants to improve its capabilities both in the air and with their industry. If they succeed they will have a viable aircraft both for their own use and for sales to other countries moving them onto the world stage in armaments production.

India to Buy New Trainers from BAE and Rolls-Royce

The government of India has signed a contract with British companies BAE Systems (BAE:L) and Rolls-Royce (RR) to provide new jet trainers for their aviation training. The contract for fifty-seven aircraft is worth over $1 billion. T This has been one of the major contacts waiting to be awarded by India as part of their modernization efforts for their military. Rolls-Royce will provide the engines for the aircraft.

BAE has been investing with India’s HAL in a manufacturing capability in that country. It already has built Hawk aircraft at this facility although this order is for British assembled ones. The new contract is a follow on order for twenty-four aircraft previously bought two years ago. India hopes to procure a further 109 of the aircraft.

The BAE built Hawk is an advanced primary jet training aircraft used by Great Britain and many other countries across the globe. With the plan to buy a modern jet fighter which is currently in the proposal evaluation part of the contract process the Hawk’s will support the preparation of pilots for those aircraft as well as the Navy’s Su-30 jet fighters.

Renewed helicopters for India

India has decided to put out an RFP for light helicopters after all the back-and-forth. See an article here. As previously discussed the planned acquisition was canceled, then planned again, and now it will be for a reduced number than the last attempt. Now rather then going with a 100% foreign buy the contract will be split between a non-Indian company and HAL. One positive of this is that they plan to limit the tech transfer, requirements that recently have been seen as onerous, to only those for the support of the aircraft.

India’s indigenous helicopter struggling

According to this article the Indian Navy is canceling its procurement of Druhz helicopters. This light aircraft made indigenously by HAL is failing to meet the operational requirements. The Navy will now look to buy a new, most likely foreign aircraft, to meet its needs. The Indian Army and Air Force are also planning to buy new aircraft, and the original plan was to make a joint Indian-Eurocopter aircraft but that deal fell apart due to corruption issues. For more on that see this.

India to buy 384 light helicopters

After canceling an earlier contract for Army helicopters, India is trying it again. This time though they are buying 259 for their Army and another 125 for the Air Force. See an article here. For information on the previous contract action see this. It is expected that Bell, Eurocopter, Augusta and Kamov will bid on the contract. The Indian government had for years relied on Russian and British equipment, but is now turning to America and other nations for their procurements. Based on past other procurements we will see similar aircraft to those that were proposed for the US Army’s Light Utility Helicopter (LUH) program which was won by the Eurocopter EC-145 aircraft.

Shhh!! Don’t tell Congress

HAL announced today in this article that they expect their MOU with Boeing to bear fruit with exports to America. See this previous story for more on the MOA. HAL believes that they will make parts and components for Boeing for such US military programs as the F-15, F/A-18 and AH-64. Based on the furor over the tanker award to Northrop-Grumman and EADS you would think Congress would protest the outsourcing of such jobs to a foreign country.

India to recompete helicopter contract

According to AFP here, India will put out for rebid its utility helicopter contract. India had previously awarded a contract to Eurocopter, a subsidiary of EADS, to buy 197 aircraft. This was scrapped due to what the Indian Government called irregularities, which EADS has denied. The new contract is for 312 helicopters and is worth substantially more.
