NEW DELHI: India has formally kicked off the acquisition process for six more long-range Poseidon-8I aircraft from the US, while a plan is also underway for fast-track procurement of six Predator-B armed drones amidst the ongoing military confrontation with China.

新德里:印度已正式启动从美国采购6架远程”P- 8I(“海神”)巡逻机的采购进程,同时,在与中国的军事对抗中,印度还计划快速采购6架“捕食者- B”无人机。

India is extensively using the naval P-8I patrol planes, which are packed with radars and electro-optic sensors as well as armed with Harpoon Block-II missiles and MK-54 lightweight torpedoes, for surveillance missions over the Indian Ocean as well as eastern Ladakh.

印度大量使用P-8I巡逻机在印度洋拉达克东部执行监视任务。P-8I巡逻机配备雷达和光电传感器,还装备了“鱼叉”Block-II导弹和MK-54轻型鱼雷。

The Navy had inducted eight Boeing-manufactured P-8I aircraft under a $2.1 billion deal inked in January 2009, while the next four will be delivered from this December onwards under another $1.1 billion contract signed in July 2016.

根据2009年1月签署的一份21亿美元的合同,印度海军引进了8架波音制造的P-8I,根据2016年7月签署的另一份11亿美元的合同,又购买了4架,将从今年12月开始交付。

Top defence sources on Friday said the “letter of request” for six more P-8Is for around $1.8 billionhas now been issued to the US for the go nment-to-go nment deal under Pentagon’s foreign military sales (FMS) programme. “The US, in turn, will soon send the ‘letter of acceptance’ after congressional approval. The contract should be inked by early next year,” said a source.

国防部高层消息人士周五表示,根据五角大楼的对外军售(FMS)计划下的政府间协议,美国已经收到了印度再购买6架P-8I的“请求函”,合同金额约为18亿美元。很快美国也将在国会批准后发出‘接受函’。合同将在明年年初签署。

Concurrently, the armed forces are examining “an emergency procurement” of six Predator-B or weaponized Sea Guardian drones from the US in wake of the ongoing confrontation with China along the 3,488-km long Line of Actual Control, especially in eastern Ladakh.

与此同时,在与中国在长达3488公里的实控线持续对峙后,特别是在拉达克东部地区,印度军方正在审查从美国“紧急采购”6架“捕食者- B”(又称“海上卫士”)无人机的计划。

TOI was the first to report last year that India had finalized the plan to acquire 30 Predator-B drones, 10 each for the Army, Navy and IAF, with different payloads to hunt and destroy targets over land and sea. But the high cost of the deal, upwards of $3.5 billion, has somewhat delayed the inking of the final contract.

印度时报去年曾报道印度已经确定了采购30架“捕食者- B”无人机的计划,“捕食者- B”陆军、海军和空军各10架,装配不同的有效载荷,用于在陆地和海上搜寻、摧毁目标。但由于金额高达35亿美元,这在一定程度上推迟了合同的签署。

“The original plan for the 30 Predators will take some more time. Meanwhile, the utilization of the fast-track procurement (FTP) route for acquiring six of these drones – two each for the three Services – is now under active consideration,” said another source.

另一位消息人士称:“最初采购30架捕食者的计划将需要更多时间来确定。但目前正积极考虑利用快速采购(FTP)路线购买6架捕食者无人机,海陆空军各2架”

It will be a huge jump in unmanned lethal capability for the armed forces if the “hunter-killer” Sea Guardians, with their advanced ground control stations, launch and recovery elements, air-to-ground missiles, smart bombs and the like, are actually acquired by India.

如果印度采购了拥有先进的地面控制站、发射和回收装置、空对地导弹、智能诈弹等装备的“捕猎-杀手”海上卫士,那么印度武装部队的无人机致命能力将会得到巨大提升。

The inking of the bilateral military pact with the US called COMCASA (Communications, Compatibility and Security Arrangement) in September 2018 has paved the way for greater access to advanced military technologies with encrypted and secure communications and data links from the country.

2018年9月与美国签署的COMCASA(通信兼容性和安全协议)双边军事协议,为更多地从该国获取加密和安全通信和数据链接的先进军事技术铺平了道路。
