This video shows you that With Indo-Japan Deal For ShinMaywa US-2 Stalled, Russia Renewed For Be-200 Amphibious Plane.
According to highly reliable sources close to idrw.org , Rosobornexport on sidelines of recently concluded Defexpo 2016 in Goa had made a renewed push to supply India with their Multipurpose Amphibious Aircraft dubbed Be-200 after India and Japan failed to conclude a deal for ShinMaywa US-2 amphibious aircraft .
Raksha Mantri Manohar Parrikar seems to be the biggest hurdle to India’s first ever purchase of military equipment from Japan since Navy has failed to convince him on how helpful amphibious aircraft will be useful to them in operational capability .
Search-and-rescue version offered to India is literally barred down near civilian variant which is of not much of utility in its current form , upgrading them locally to military grade equipment will be a costly and time-consuming affair . The viability of Making them in India according to study submitted to Defence ministry will only be sucess if more than 15 amphibious aircraft are purchased by India , which was some of the factors which lead to Parrikar dropping it from the priroty list for Indian Navy .
Be-200 lost to ShinMaywa US-2 in 2010 tender of Indian Navy but Russia now plans to develop Anti-Submarine Armed variant of Be-200 by 2020 and already has offered India Airborne Special equipment Patrol version which will have on board radar system, a magnetometer system, an electronic intelligence system , a command tactical system and a weapons management system which can be installed on board the aircraft in addition to the electro-optical detection & surveillance system and operator-observer workstations .
Even Basic Search-and-rescue version offered by Russia for Be-200 will be equipped with an electro-optical detection and surveillance system. Be-200 also comes with Special ambulance version equipped with ambulatory equipment and stretchers for transportation of severally ill patients from Naval ships from mid-sea .
Be-200 also has a freighter version fitted with a set of handling equipment enabling cargo transportation in standard containers or on pallets . The civilian version also includes a Fire-fighting version where aircraft can be used to dose forest fires or large Industrial fires by dropping water or special fire-extinguishing chemical liquids .
It is still unclear if India will have a re look at latest Russian proposal but longer ShinMaywa US-2 amphibious aircraft deal is stuck it does look India is having a rethink on the whole deal its self and competition might fancy their chances .
