A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the building of three more submarines under the P75 programme has been signed by Mazagon Dockyard Ltd. and Naval Group.

‘Horizon 2047: 25th Anniversary of the India-France Strategic Partnership, Towards A Century of India-France Relations’ was adopted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and French President Emmanuel Macron.

The partnership between naval businesses from the two nations in sharing their experience was praised by both leaders.

The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) describing the building of three new submarines as part of the P75 programme, which was signed by [TT3] [P4] Mazagon Dockyard Ltd and Naval Group, was also praised by the leaders.

The Scorpene Submarines are incredibly powerful ships with cutting-edge stealth capabilities, long-range guided torpedoes, and anti-ship missiles. These submarines have cutting-edge sensor and SONAR systems that enable exceptional operational capabilities.

The joint declaration states that “India and France are ready to explore more ambitious projects to develop the Indian submarine fleet and its performance.”

India is establishing a Technical Office of the DRDO at its Embassy in Paris in preparation for the adoption of a Roadmap on Defence Industrial Cooperation between the two nations.

The contract between Safran Helicopter Engine and HAL for the Transfer of Technology of Forging and Castings for the Shakti Engine was mentioned by PM Modi and President Macron, who also praised the French commitment to the “Make-in-India” initiative. Other partnerships in the defence industry that are based on mutual trust include those between BAE Systems and BAE Systems.

The Navy will purchase the three Scorpene-class submarines under the repeat clause as part of Project 75, and Mazagon Dockyards Limited in Mumbai would construct them.

Following negotiations between French President Emmanuel Macron and Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Paris, the statement was made.

“Another illustration of this military industry collaboration grounded on trust is the agreement reached by Safran Helicopter Engine and HAL for the transfer of forging and casting technology for the Shakti Engine. This reflects the French government’s dedication to encouraging technology transfer and Make in India, as stated in the joint statement.

India and France appreciate the prompt delivery of the 36 Rafale aircraft that were ordered by India, continuing their excellent military aviation collaboration that has spanned more than five decades.

India and France made a crucial agreement on Friday to continue their innovative defence collaboration in cutting-edge aeronautical technologies by assisting in the development of a combat aircraft engine.

Before the end of this year, the French company Safran and the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) will create a project roadmap. Additionally, they chose to assist Safran Helicopter Engine’s industrial cooperation for the motorization of heavy-lift helicopters under the Indian Multi Role Helicopter [IMRH] programme.

Another Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was also signed by Naval Group France, a pioneer in the European naval defence industry, and Garden Reach Shipbuilders and Engineers Ltd. (GRSE), to work together on surface ships that will meet the needs of the Indian Navy and other international navies.

The AoN was also approved by India’s Defence Acquisition Committee (DAC), which met on Thursday, for the purchase of three more Scorpene submarines under the Buy (Indian) category, which will be built by Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders Limited (MDL).
