    Nothing meets these requirements unless you want the American's stealth LPD.

    Amphibious ships!!!
    its more useful for countries like US whose every time concern is which country to invade. amphibious ships like US navy marines operate adds another dimension to navy- trained solders like US marines, amphibious troop transport vehicles, armored attack vehicles, sea attackhelicopters to provide air support for troops in ground. Navy will have to solve a lot of this problems before they bring in these ships. Hell a new wing of defense called Indian marines have to be made.

    Royal Navy bay class would be perfect for India proven design. One is also for sale soon, so get one cheap and then build another

    LPD's in Indian Navy,would be awesome.However For us they would be more useful for relief efforts during disaster,after all we don't believe in intervening like USA.But still it will be good as a deterrent by increasing our quick action capability.

    This sounds like new construction of four LPDs announced in Dec. 2009, not retrofit of used. Yes?
    I've read the US is trying to sell many LPDs in the same class as Jalashwa, some slightly larger, to India(LPD-13), Mexico(LPD-7), or anyone else(LPD-12). Some will be decommissioned soon, or were in the last few years. Why is this road not taken?

    My simple jawab for the first and hopefully the last time. Getting amphibious ships does not mean that you are going to invade. Unless you think getting nukes means you are going to start nuking from tomorrow.

    The Mistral Class is not a LPD which is the requirement, It is a LDH. Two get picky it is also an meter to small.

    Bay Class, did you read the requirement? it is only 176m with a requirement of 200m.

    We should be a bit more ambitious and think about real Amphibious Assault Ships like Mistral or even better like Spanish Juan Carlos (Australian navy has ordered a couple of these ships). A couple of these ships will be far better than 4 LPDs.

    Submarine tender was announced a year ago and still won't be ready till December 2011. How many years before this tender is floated? By the time the decision arrives there will be another election and by the time the LPDs finally arrive we'll all be old men.

    What a wonderful defence procurement policy, UPA.
