Lets list in my opinion the worst decisions taken or nearly taken by largest navies around the world. #εpsilon Image
The #USNavy #Zumwaltclass destroyers were supposed to have #AGS capable of firing ultra long range 155mm shells, have no shells as they were canceled. Now, to re-add the X-factor the #USN is replacing AGS guns with VLS for upto 12 hypersonic missiles. Costing a lot of $$$$$$$$$s Image
Once the greatest #Navy on Earth, decided it was too great and powerful to have a ship mounted AShM. The #Brits decided #RoyalNavy could retire its #Harpoons without procuring a replacement anytime soon. Luckily , it didnt happen. This is why I feel #UK will cause #AUKUS to fail? Image

This is a opposite #whatwerethedesignersthinking thread. The #Russians built a 5,000 tonne frigate that has more missiles than several larger contemporaries. It has 16 AShMs VLS (2 3S14 8 cell UKSK modules) and 32 Redut SAM VLS for 9M96E 40 km and 9M96E2 120 km missiles. #εpsilon Image
My very scientific metric 115 tonne per missile (I know it is not scientific, just a fun metric). For eg. #Indian #Kolkataclass is 154 tonne per missile, #British #Daringclass is 168 tonne per missile. But, those are destroyers and have larger stores for longer deployments Image
It is funny that these frigates have the same peer armament as #IndianNavy MF-STAR destroyers with equally potent AD & AShMs at 2/3rds the displacement which limits endurance for this #Russian ship. The Gorkys are based on elongated Krivak/#Talwarclass/Admiral Grigorovich hulls.. Image

My Indian followers,#Russians have benefitted a lot from you guys designing and purchasing #Russian origin gear for them to swoop in and buy some you guys paid to develop or revive. Exhibit A: Su-30MKI becomes Su-30SM. #εpsilon ImageImage
There are two distinct #Su30 lines, #Indian #Su30MKI at Irkut plant and its derivatives and #Chinese #Su30MKK at KNAAPO plant and its derivatives. The Su-30SM, bought in nos is from MKI lineage. To be fair #Russianairforce also bought 18 Su-30M2s to keep KNAAPO busy before #Su35S ImageImage
Exhibit B: MiG-29K operated by the #IndianNavy made sure that the #Russians can buy a few for themselves after the #Indian production run was done. Else, they might have stuck to upgrading their Su-33s in the long run. ImageImage

New Iteration of #Whatwerethedesignersthinking! This time it is the Zulfiqar class frigate from #Pakistan. #IndianNavy presently maintains a massive advantage in fleet size over the #PakistanNavy. The advantage was even more so in the 2000s. These frigates have just 8 SAMs.. Image
For comparison, the 3 #IndianNavy #Delhi class destroyers that were in service before the #Pakistani Zulfiqar class have more Kh-35s than the 4 Zulfiqars have SAMs. The AD is made worse by the considering that these are 15 km range missiles vs 120 km - 300 km ranged Kh-35s. Image
The Zulfiqars are based on the #Chinese Type 053H3 base design which shares the same SAM but are late 1990s vintage compared. These vessels are finally getting much needed backup in the form of the 4 Type 054APs which are infact better than their Indian contemporaries in SAMs Image

#Whatwerethedesignersthinking when they designed the INS Kamorta as part of #Kamortaclass of ASW corvettes for the #IndianNavy . These vessels displace within 500 tonnes of #IndianNavy's own #Talwarclass #frigates and #Russian Admiral Grigorovich class #εpsilon Image
I have not seen a lot of coverage of these essentially frigate sized OPVs of the #IndianNavy and hence wanted to do a comparion. These vessels have no cruise missile VLS cells or any Air Defense VLS cells. She just has 2 RBU-6000s and a torpedo launcher for sub hunting. Image
So the #IndianNavy took an average of 8 years to build each one of them and 9 years after the lead ship was commissioned, she doesnt have a VDS (Variable Depth Sonar)/ TAS (Towed Array Sonar), essentially for what is officially an ASW corvette. Image

Had to use this hilarious picture!! The #AUKUS program doesnt instill much confidence in me personally. The program was supposed to bring together the #USNavy , #RoyalNavy and the #AustralianNavy to build a #Nuclear sub fleet. What about #IndianNavy? #εpsilon Image
The #UK in post #Brexit is notorious for armed forces cut that make little sense. There were rumors that they might cut the fleet size of #Astutesubmarine and give 2-3 to #Australia in #AUKUS. The current plan hinges a lot on #UK being not #UK . Image
The US is letting go of its 3 #Virginiaclass production slots to sell the boats to #Australia in 2030s. This will be followed by #SSNAUKUS to be built from mid 2030s to 2040s. This program is highly dependent on UK not being UK and funding the new SSN development. Image

Okay, being neutral means covering both sides so here is a #PakistanNavy thread. They have bridged a big capability vs #IndianNavy in 2022. They inducted the first of the 4 #Type054AP frigates in Jan 2022 and 2nd in June 2022. Image
These sport 32 cells of HQ-16, Chinese derivatives of the naval Shtil-VL seen on Russian Admiral Grigorovich class frigates. They also sport 4 AShMs although the OG Type 054 can carry 8 AShMs. Image
Why are these a concern for India? These are a great 1 to 1 comparison to #IndianNavy 's #Talwarclass as they displace within 100-200 tonnes of each other
1. They have 32 SAM, medium range which is 8 more than the obsolete single arm launchers on 6 Talwar class in service carry. Image

Major forest fires at multiple locations at Goa, including fire at Mhadei Wildlife Sanctuary, Morlem and Cortalim, were reported by civil authorities. On a request from the District Administration, the #IndianNavy deployed its assets to contain the fire. A #Dornier was flown on
07 March 2023 to survey the area and localise the fire. #Firefighting equipment were then flown in from Naval Units based at Kochi and Mumbai and multiple sorties for fighting fire were undertaken by Seaking aircraft of the Navy. The helicopters flew multiple missions on 08 March
2023 and sprayed appx. 17 tons of water at Mhadei, Cortalim and Morlem, in 26 runs made over affected areas. The complex operation required picking up water from a nearby water body and releasing it over affected area in difficult terrain. The Special gear

Looks like my #IndianNavy missile test thread blew up so, a follow on thread on its sister force #IndianAirForce . The collective west, coming out of the Cold War expected the #IAF to be a more Soviet aligned force. #Su30MKI #F35B #TROPEX #εpsilon #MiG21 #MiG21Bison #Mirage2000 Image
The #IAF however has the unique perspective of operating the top western and the top #Russian of alternate &/or every generation egs Hawker Hunter (credits on pic), #MiG21, #MiG29, #Su30MKI, #Mirage2000 #Harrier ImageImage
Each fighter brings in with it, performance numbers but also tactics and maintenance regimen and India can tap into #Russian or #British ideas and pick and choose what works the best. Image

It's #NavyDay today!! 🧵
Happy Navy day to those who served and those who are serving.
Navy is traditionally a mixture of extremes. It is the navy which won territories for the nations. Spain, England, Holland, Portugal, France and India were all successful colonial powers only+
because of their respective navies.
On the other hand, sailors - as against the navy - bring to mind fun and frolic. More than any group of people in the world, it is the sailors who are associated with deeds that usually gets shunted by the general conscience: +
Getting drunk at the slightest pretext in any bar or shack, engaging in brawls for no reason at all while there, rushing to the places where girls await with outstretched hands.

Indian Navy is different.

We dutifully send money home as soon as we get the salaries +

The first destroyer of India INS RAJPUT D141, an R class destroyer which was acquired in 1949 from Royal Navy (It also served in world war II as HMS Rotherham H09) During 1971 Indo Pak war Rajput was deployed in eastern coast to pretend as INS Vikrant to misguide +
Pakistani Submarine PNS Ghazi to keep her away from INS Vikrant. This ploy eventually led to downing of Pakistan’s pride PNS Ghazi.
That time India had three destroyers in same R class Rajput, Rana and Ranjit. Old INS Rajput was decommissioned in 1976 #IndianNavy. #NavyDay2022
In the early seventies INS Rana, Ranjit and Rajput used to be berthed near boat jetty/ pontoon. R-Class destroyers as the name suggests used to present a very scary look as pre-1971 conflict all naval ships were painted in dark grey while their chimney used to be black.

Un petit 🧶 relatif au programme P75(i) car il semblerait qu'il soit engagé sur les mêmes rationalités que le défunt programme SEA 1000 (classe Attack) : la Marine indienne va-t-elle le saborder... pour des #SNA / #SSN ?
➡️ Le programme P75i était approuvé en 2007. Une 1ière RFI était émise en 2008. Le conseil d'acquisition de la défense approuvait le programme en 2010. Une nouvelle RFI était alors émise sans qu'elle ne déboucha sur le RFP prévu 2012. En mai 2017, décision prise que le
programme P75i relèverait du chapitre 7 du Defence Procurement Procedure 2016 : construction en Inde sous transfert de technologie. Mars 2018 : Magazon Dock Limited qui construit les Scorpène assemblera les bateaux. Une 3ième RFI lancée en juillet 2017. Approbation ministérielle

Congratulations to the Indian Navy on the new ensign!

A quick thread on the verse in the Octagon seal, “Sham no Varunah”

The verse comes from the Seekshavalli section in the Taittiriya Upanishad of the Krishna Yajur Veda. #Thread
The verse is part of a longer Sloka in the Seekshavalli.

It starts with an invocation to Mitra, one of the Adityas, to whom Samba built the Sun Temple at Mulasthana (Multan)

As with several other places in the Vedas, especially Rig Veda, Mitra and Varuna are mentioned together in the verse,

“Sham no Mitrah, Sham Varunah”,

praying that the Adityas (sons of Aditi and Kashyapa), Mitra, and Varuna, bless us.
