A number of the proposals that the deputy chairman of the Russian government did in New Delhi, was proposal Indian side to work together on global navigation system GLONASS. With all this Rogozin himself emphasizes that the proposals for GLONASS are like a particular equal partnership. In other words, Indian business together with lessons learned in the Indian professionals could participate in the formation of the project, which is still considered only Russian. And it is, indeed, a very tempting proposal, after all, in fact the case, the Indian side offered to become an accomplice of the principal of the project, not just to enjoy its final product, just realized only Russian spices.
It is worth recalling that before the arrival of Rogozin to India between this state and the Russian Federation was the agreement signed in January 2007. Under the agreement, India provided the use of radio-frequency GLONASS to solve their own problems. Based on this agreement, it was decided to use the Russian global positioning system in the Indian transport. Russian company "NIS GLONASS" for purposes of this kind registered in the Indian town of Mumbai subsidiary NIS GLONASS Pvt Ltd. It happened at the end of the past — the beginning of the year. It would seem that revenues from the project it was possible to count in Russian budget but was not quite so clear. On the horizon there appeared a rival in England, Singapore and Italian companies, which set out to make their proposals to the Indian side, which put the project before the Russian tangible obstacle. In the end, winning the tender, which was involved in the Russian company, could not be far away in Russian hands.
Apparently, that tip the scales at all, and finally to the side of the Russian Federation, Dmitry Rogozin, and going to the Indian side proposal, from which, indeed, it is difficult to turn away. Hardly from the British or Singaporean Indians to be expected that they will offer to New Delhi to participate equally in your own projects, not just to enjoy produced abroad final product. Our home is gone for such a step, and therefore have to wait for the Indian management solutions and business.
But the theme of the GLONASS meetings Dmitry Rogozin and the Indian government was far not the only one. The materials posted by the Indian side, reported on arrangements for the modernization of India's Russian military equipment purchased earlier, also on the participation of the Russian Federation is in Indian projects on mutually criteria. Precisely to say, many of, so speak out, the old agreements, gained its latest form after a series of irregularities that emerged between with 2 sides.
Namely, Dmitry Rogozin open a discussion in New Delhi-term role of the Russian side in the construction of 7 frigates on the project, 17A (frigates, which are based on the Stealth technology with the introduction of Indian techniques), plus 4 destroyers Project 15B. While no indication of how Russian companies can integrate the work of the Indian 'Mazagon Docks "on the construction of destroyers. Well, to begin such work Russian side will have to use all their trump card, which will lay there.
In addition, a visit to India, Dmitry Rogozin, one way or another, worked for a few Russian-Indian projects. These are the projects that due to certain events by the Indian side has been frozen. It is a question of upgrading the Tu-142ME. This is a modification of the distant anti-aircraft Tu-142 for the tropical climate of India. The essence is to modernize Russia's proposal to equip these winged cars newest search and sighting system developed by Russian spec. Indian side generally not against such modernization, but still refers to the value of equipping the Tu-142ME supersonic 3M-54E missiles capable of striking with the highest efficiency surface targets from small rocket ship to the cruiser.
Very exciting is the information that during the meeting, Dmitry Rogozin, head of the Indian defense officials open a discussion missiles introduction of a joint Russian-Indian production «BrahMos» not only Indian, and Russian troops. If this kind of proposal Indian Minister Anthony really taken Rogozin, the question is, where is in Russia «BrahMos» will be applied? On this occasion, the professionals have only one option: the introduction of missiles on frigates of the project 11356/57. In 2014, the Russian Navy will receive three such frigates, which are now being created in the enterprise "Amber". But at the same time, the question arises as to why the Russian Federation to use the "BrahMos", if there is already at least 100% "Yakhont"? Apparently, the answer lies only on the basis of readiness for improvement of Russian-Indian relations, and once more work in partnership, then, as they say, the fruit of co-production and the Russian Federation, too, may have to be used.
Overall, the trip to India Rogozin has shown that 2-lack of projects that would have allowed not only to raise the cooperation between the countries to a new level in the military-technical sphere, and the increment turnover. Currently turnover rate is so high for the global economy, which is Russian and Indian, looks more than timidly: at least 10 billion dollars a year. To compare the turnover of the Russian Federation and Germany came up to the mark of 70 billion dollars. In other words, the Russian and Indian sides all have a chance to develop their partnership, including through implementation of the projects outlined here.
