GRSE to launch 3rd Project-17A Nilgiri class Frigate on August 17
Garden Reach Shipbuilders (GRSE) has announced that it will launch the third and last Project-17A class advanced guided missile Frigate built by them, on 17th August.
These Project-17A class Frigates will come equipped with the time and tested world’s fastest supersonic cruise missile BrahMos with more than 450km range at Mach 3 speed, Barak-8ER LR-SAM as its primary Air Defense weapon which can destroy incoming enemy targets at 150km range, OTO Melara 76mm Naval Gun, RBU-6000 rocket launchers for anti-submarine warfare, triple tube torpedo launchers to destroy enemy submarines.
These ships will also have a Mareech Torpedo countermeasure system and Kavach anti-missile decoy launchers.
The primary radar of these ships will be the Israeli EL/M-2248 MF-STAR active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar which is a multi-function, phased-array radar system featuring an azimuth of 360o, with the capability to track both aerial and surface targets, at a range of over 450 km (280 mi).
These ships will also have Indra LTR-25 ‘Lanza’ surface-search radar, as its secondary radar suite. The LTR-25 is a solid-state, three-dimensional (3D), long-range radar capable of operating in a dense electronic environment and features a range of over 250 nmi (460 km; 290 mi), with the capability to track various aerial targets – including fighter aircraft and ballistic missiles.
These ships will feature various other systems like Electronic Warfare suites, Sonars and will be powered by two General Electric LM2500 gas turbines – manufactured by GE Aviation and two MAN 12V28/33D STC four-stroke engines – manufactured by MAN Diesel & Turbo, arranged in a combined diesel and gas (CODAG) propulsion configuration.
