Russia’s missile sale to Indonesia upsets DRDO
shiv aroor Posted online: Thursday, July 20, 2006 at 0000 hrs IST NEW DELHI, JULY 19
Moscow’s decision to sell anti-ship cruise missiles to Indonesia without keeping Indo-Russian joint venture BrahMos Aerospace in the loop has left many red faces at DRDO, the equal Indian partner in the company.
Apart from looking at Moscow’s proposed sale, as well as outside contractual bounds, DRDO is concerned that the sale would eat into the BrahMos missile’s market and therefore affect profits even before the missile has made its first sale abroad.
While the DRDO responded to a detailed questionnaire sent by The Indian Express by saying that its chief M Natarajan was ‘‘not going to Russia concerning the sale of any missile’’, top sources have confirmed that Natarajan is leaving for Moscow on July 19, and his agenda there includes sorting out this new disagreement.
When asked about Russia’s sale to Indonesia, and the fact that it was not being routed through BrahMos Aerospace as is stipulated in the terms and conditions of the joint venture, DRDO simply provided a definition of what BrahMos Aerospace does ‘‘concerned with the sale of BrahMos missile.’’
Last month, Defence Secretary Shekhar Dutt first conveyed DRDO’s anxieties when he met Russian Defence Minister Sergei Ivanov in Moscow. BrahMos Aerospace Managing Director and DRDO Chief Controller (missiles) A Sivathanu Pillai also made known India’s concerns to Russia’s Deputy Defence Minister Mikhail Dmitriyev. Pillai could not be reached for comment.
DRDO perceives Moscow’s move to sell Yakhont missiles -- the prototype on which the BrahMos was developed -- to be inexplicable, since the programme was specifically entered into to ‘‘deploy BrahMos missile system in the Indian and Russian armed forces and also to export to friendly countries.’’ Sources said Moscow has justified the sale by indicating that talks with Indonesia have been on for three years.
Late last month PM Manmohan Singh visited the BrahMos Aerospace complex in the Delhi cantonment and exhorted the missile’s ‘‘immense export potential’’, a visit where he also made it a point to call Russia a ‘‘traditional and trusted supplier of defence systems.’’
Development Operating as BrahMos Aerospace, a joint Russian and Indian team of NPO Mashinostroyenia (NPO Mash) and the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has produced a variant of the Russian Yakhont missile in India. Yakhont (Yakhont-M) is the export name for the 3M55 long-range high-speed ramjet-powered anti-ship weapon that has been in development since (at least) 1985 by NPO Mash. India's new missile has been named the PJ-10 BrahMos (after the Brahmaputra and Moscow rivers). It is essentially a 290 km range derivative of the 3M55 and India plans to field air-, land- and sea-launched versions. NPO Mash has referred to the Yakhont-M as part of the 'Alfa' air-based weapon system. This should not be confused with the same company's earlier Alfa high-speed missile programme - the status of which is currently unknown.The BrahMos programme came into being following an inter-governmental agreement between India and Russia in February 1998. The original 3M55 missile has been deployed in Russia as a shore-based (Bastion) and sea-going system. While there are long-term plans to introduce an airborne version for Russia, the current development effort is being driven by a joint programme with India for the BrahMos. By July 2007 India had completed a 14-shot series of shore- and ship-based test firings of the BrahMos and had taken the missile into series production. The initial service version of the BrahMos is a ship-launched weapon for the Indian Navy's Rajput (Kashin II-class) vessels, followed by a land-based Army variant. In June 2007 the Indian
SURABAYA,KOMPAS.com - Kemampuan industri galangan kapal Indonesia sebenarnya tak bisa diremehkan. Sebagai contoh, Divisi Kapal Perang PT PAL Indonesia (Persero) mampu memasang rudal Yakhunt buatan Rusia ke KRI Oswald Siahaan atau OWA yang merupakan kapal perang buatan anak negeri. Pemasangan misil di Indonesia akan menghemat biaya industri kapal.
Kepala Proyek Pemasangan Rudal Yakhunt Sutrisno mengatakan, saat ini pihaknya sedang membuat tempat pemasangan misil di lambung KRI OWA. " Bulan April mendatang empat misil dari Rusia akan datang dan siap dipasang di KRI OWA, ujarnya," Selasa (16/2) di PT PAL Indonesia (Persero), Surabaya.
Sebelumnya, PT PAL Indonesia (Persero) juga berhasil memperbaiki kapal perang jenis Corvet tipe Sigma buatan Belanda yang sebelumnya harus diperbaiki di Swiss selama berbulan-bulan dan berhasil diperbaiki sendiri hanya dalam waktu satu minggu. Industri kapal terbesar di Indonesia ini juga mampu melakukan overhaul Kapal Selam KRI Cakra dan KRI Nanggala tahun 1995 dan 1997 yang sebelumnya harus dilakukan di Korea Selatan.
"Kami sebenarnya mampu. Hanya, selama ini tak diberi kesempatan," kata Ketua Umum Serikat Pekerja PT PAL Indonesia (Persero) Yuniarto Leksana . Sebagai salah satu BUMN yang bergerak pada industri galangan kapal, PT PAL Indonesia (Persero) mengalami keterpurukan dalam tiga tahun terakhir. Bahkan, mulai Maret 2010, sebanyak 900 karyawan terpaksa harus di-PHK demi efisiensi perusahaan.
