Russia’s Rubin Responds To Indian Submarine Tender RFI With Amur-1650


“According to the tender rules and Make in India logic the choice of a foreign partner belongs to Indian enterprises. Our proposal for the Indian Navy is based on non-nuclear Amur-1650 submarine and meets all the customer requirements,” he said.

The Indian government sent a Request for Information (RFI) related to 75I tender to collect data on potential suppliers and their products. Rubin bids at the tender with Rosoboronexport arms trader and under the auspices of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation.

“The Indian government submitted the RFI to Rosoboronexport. Rubin timely and fully supplied all the necessary information to Rosoboronexport. We are waiting for Request for Proposal to provide full answers on all issues,” Vilnit said.

The Indian Navy announced plans to procure six submarines in 2006. Before 75I tender which was several times postponed, India signed a contract with France for the supply of six Scorpene diesel-electric subs.
Non-nuclear Amur-1650 is an export option of Lada-class submarines of project 677 designed by Rubin. New hull solutions, coating and the latest electronics provide unprecedented stealth characteristics. Amur-1650 can carry precision Club missiles (export option of Kalibr). Read More
