Bangladesh took delivery on Monday of its first submarines, bought from China, as it seeks to boost its naval power in the Bay of Bengal.

Bangladesh paid a reported $203 million for the two submarines, a deal that reflects the country’s growing economic and defence ties with Beijing.

Armed forces spokeswoman Taposhi Rabeya said they would become part of the country’s naval fleet at the beginning of next year.

The Ming-class submarines (Type 035) are medium sized diesel-electric submarines. In the 1960s China reverse engineered the Russian Romeo Class into the Chinese Romeo-class Type 033. The Ming-class Type 035 were developed in the 1970s from the Romeo Type 033.

“This is the first ever addition of submarines in Bangladesh defence force,” she told AFP.

Bangladesh has been expanding its defence capabilities in recent years, building a new airbase close to neighbouring Myanmar, opening several new military cantonments across the country and adding new frigates to its naval fleet.

In 2013 the government of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina signed a billion-dollar deal with Russia to buy fighter training jets, helicopters and anti-tank missiles.

Hasina announced the plan to purchase two submarines the same year as part of her government’s move to build a modern navy to defend the resource-rich Bay of Bengal.

Bangladesh Navy have been taking submarine training from Turkey since 2004.Bangladesh’s submarine program is at least 10 years old. In March 2004, a govt. minister told the Parliament about buying 4 subs by 2012. But due to political turmoil, the program got delayed, until late 2008, when a naval confrontation with Myanmar accelerated everything. The program got more acceleration after reports of Myanmar Navy’s plans to acquire subs. Over the years, at least 100 sailors received submarine training both in Turkey and in China. There’s no reason to believe that the subs would be operated by 17 sailors. Of course initial operation may require Chinese help, but Bangladesh Navy sets a high standard in training and operations, which indicates that even if there is Chinese assistance, it would be for a very short period of time. And these subs are arriving in 2015, not in 2019. This was recently confirmed by a high-placed govt. official to the media. And on another note, the 2 subs are likely to be first batch of a bigger submarine arm. Things are likely to be determined by the economic growth of the country.

A UN tribunal has settled Bangladesh’s long-standing maritime border disputes with neighbours Myanmar and India, paving the way for Dhaka to invite bids from multinational firms to explore for oil in the Bay.

Bangladesh officials say that has ensured the country’s sovereignty over 111,631 square kilometres (43,100 square miles) of sea, an area nearly equal to its landmass.

Bangladesh ordered two boats from China for $203.5M in 2013.Bangladesh Navy was interested in buying S 20 and Type 039 song class submarine which costs $250M per boat but due to budget limitation turned to Ming class submarine.Ming class submarine is developed from Russian Romeo Class submarine.Twelve Type 035G class submarine were built between 1990 and 2001 and last two submarine have AIP propulsion.

Xi Jinping last month became the first Chinese president in 30 years to visit Bangladesh, which has historically been more closely allied to rival regional power India.

In 2013, Bangladesh prime minister Husina Sheikh signed a contract with China for the purchase of two submarines worth $203 million to boosts country’s naval power to protect its share in the resource-rich Bay of Bengal which are claimed by both neighboring Hindu-majority Indiaand Buddhist-majority Myanmar.

Bangladesh navy chief Admiral Nizamuddin Ahmed received the submarines during a ceremony at Liao Nan Shipyard in Liaoning province’s Dalian city, according to an Inter Services Public Relation Directorate release, the Dhaka Tribune reported.

Bangladesh Navy received its first submarine delivery from China on Monday, as the country seeks to boost its naval power in the Bay of Bengal.

“With the inclusion of the submarines, Bangladesh Navy has started its journey as a three dimensional force,” Admiral Mohammad Nizamuddin Ahmed, Chief of Naval Staff, said during the handover ceremony at Liaonan shipyard Dalian state, China.

 

The deal, which reportedly costs $203 million, reflects the growing economic and defense relations between Bangladesh and China, Yahoo! News noted.

The type 035G class submarines, which are the first addition to the country’s defense force, are set to be part of the country’s naval fleet starting next year, Taposhi Rabeya, spokesperson for Bangladesh’s armed forces, said. The submarines will be named BNS Nabajatra and BNS Joyjatra.

 

Rear Admiral Liu Zizhu represented the Chinese government and handed over the submarines to Admiral Ahmed in the presence of senior naval officials from both parties, the Daily Star reported.

Ahmed also thanked the Chinese naval force for modernizing the submarines and training the Bangladesh Navy personnel to operate and maintain the ship. A sea trial and real training on running the submarines have also been conducted.

The diesel-electric submarines displace 2,110 tons with a surface endurance of up to 8,000 nm, allowing it to stay at sea for about 60 days. It could carry 57 personnel and 18 torpedoes with an option of loading 32 mines as well.

With the new type 035G submarines at hand, the Bangladesh Navy could now ensure maritime border security in the Bay of Bengal, Ahmed said.

Indian Response :

The newspaper quoted a senior Indian defense official as saying:

“Why would Bangladesh need submarines? This decision by the government there and the ongoing strife in the country is a matter of concern for us. We also suspect that Chinese submarines are sneaking into Indian territorial waters in the Bay of Bengal region, though none has been detected as yet. This is reason enough for greater naval presence in the region. At the moment, India isn’t really prepared for any conflict in the Bay of Bengal region near West Bengal due to the lack of adequate infrastructure.”

The report went on to describe a number of infrastructure upgrades India’s Navy is making in the area, primarily land it is looking into purchasing on Sagar Island. These include building a new port. Also in West Bengal, India is constructing a Unmanned Aerial Vehicle base in the city of Kolkata.

Bangladesh has long-standing maritime border disputes with India and Burma in the Bay of Bengal. The International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea International Court decided the Bangladesh-Burmese dispute in Dhaka’s favor last year.

Meanwhile, in 2009 Bangladesh instituted proceedings against India over the dispute in the UN’s Permanent Court of Arbitration. The hearing took place this month, from December 9th through December 18th. A decision is expected sometime next year.

 

 

Indian Media reported ” The geographical location of denies China access to the Bay of Bengal. But this has not stopped Beijing from trying to extend its naval power projection beyond its national ports. Bangladesh is simply another element of China’s strategy to dramatically enhance its global naval posture. China has ‘pivoted’ to the waters around Indian subcontinent and the Bangladesh submarine story is part of this larger strategic game.

Bangladesh’s decision to purchase the submarines from China is unsurprising as Dhaka has long relied heavily on Beijing for military equipment. In 2012, it was the second largest market for Chinese arms exports behind Pakistan amounting to $350m.

It needs to be mentioned here that China has established itself as a credible competitor in the global weapons market and exported weapons worth more than $2bn to different countries. China is also helping Bangladesh rebuild the Ordinance Factory in Gazipur which produces small arms and ammunition.

The Bangladesh-China Defence Co-operation Agreement was inked in 2002, expanding strategic and military cooperation. Since then, China has supplied 65 artillery guns, 114 missile systems, 155 mm howitzers, and large cache of small arms and ammunitions.

The Bangladesh army is in the process of procuring 2,000 Main Battle Tanks from China at the cost of 162 million dollars, which is a significant purchase for a country the size of Bangladesh with a GDP per capita of 700 dollars. The Bangladeshi navy (Nou Bahini) is collaborating extensively with the Chinese Navy (PLAN) in acquiring missile boats, torpedo boats, gunboats, and submarine hunters. Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has argued that a strong navy is needed as a “deterrent force” and she aims to usher in a process of developing a three-dimensional naval force by the next decade.

 

Ming Class Submarine Specification : 

 The Type 035 (export name: ES5; NATO reporting name: Ming class) was PRC’s first independently developed diesel-electric submarine, based on the 1950s-era Soviet Romeo class design with some modifications. A total of 21 submarines in three variants have been built since the early 1970s, with 18 still remaining in operational service with the PLA Navy today. The latest Type 035G features improved fire control system and much reduced acoustic signature. The last boat of the class was commissioned in 2001.

     Construction of the first Type 035 began in October 1969 at Wuhan Shipyard in central China. The boat was launched in July 1971 and entered service with the PLA Navy in April 1974.There are at least four known variants of the Type 035. The first three boats (hull 232, 233 and an unidentified boat) built between 1969 and 1979 are ES5C. They are said to be trouble-prone and were retired in the 1980s. After the submarine received its national design certificate in 1983, the production resumed in 1987 in the improved Type 035G (ES5D/E), with a total of 12 boats (hull 342, 352~354, 356~363) built between 1988~1995. In the late 1990s, the Type 035 production line was re-opened due to the delay in the development of the new-generation Type 039. An additional 6 boats (hull 305~310) in the improved Type 035B variant were built between 1997 and 2001.

People’s Liberation Navy has decommissioned two Type 035G class submarine which might be delivered to Bangladesh Navy in 2015 said by a Chinese naval spokesman.

035 type submarine series (ES5C / D / E / F / FT type) is mass construction has been through 1984 from 1960’s 033-inch normal power submarine (Romeo type) as the successor to, China is based on the same class normal power submarine that was developed by the addition of its own improvement [1]. NATO code name is “Ming class”.

035 type development of the sixth Machinery Industry Department (at the time) of Liu Huaqing new normal power submarine development proposed Deputy Director submitted in November 1965 to oversee the ship department of defense industry has become a clue [1]. In the sixth machine Industry Department has started a preliminary study on the new submarines from 1966. March 15, 1967, “four-inch vessels design review and technical council” pass through the 035-inch submarine design proposal in (abbreviation “315 meeting”) of examination, the same year in April, in the Central Military Commission 64th Executive Committee 035 type submarines, such as the four new equipment development plan is approved, 035-type development of has been formally approved by this [1].

In the 035-type development, improvement of the previous class of 033-inch range and the underwater speed of insidious time while based on the design of, was aimed to increase the speed at the time of snorkel sail to a level no means inferior to other countries of the submarine [1]. # 701 Institute of ChoMinami如,楊換students, the development team around the rylenes Yes engineer, in the design performance “reduction of water resistance, improved propulsion efficiency, output strengthening” the development work with an emphasis on three points the [1].

For reduction of water resistance, responsible for the research work 701 Institute and 702 Research Institute jointly. After testing a variety of ship-shaped, the result of the spindle hull-effective in the water resistance decline was obtained. Because it is based on 033 type in the design, but could not ideal spindle, design changes ship neck, area reduction of the upper deck, the improvement of the free flood holes were performed [1]. In parallel with the hull design, automatic navigation device and the automatic steering system has been developed, it has become possible in order to ensure the normal navigation even in all speed [1]. The development of the power section, etc. is responsible for # 712 laboratories and Xiangtan Electrical Factory (No. 448 Factory), it was developed in the output increase of the diesel engine and the generator and the control device that is appropriate to it. Battery is added improvements, also features the number has increased four than 033 type [1]. Diesel engine is equipped with a 6E390-ZC-in-speed diesel engine 2 groups Shaanxi Diesel Engine Factory has developed, total output has been enhanced from 4,000 horsepower of the 033-inch to 4,800 horsepower. In addition to promoting increased efficiency of the screw is also reduced [1].

Construction of the best ship of the 035-inch (ES5C type) (ship number 162 → 232) in October 1969, started in Hubei Wuchang Shipbuilding Factory, launched in July 1971, completed in June 1972, performance delivery to the Chinese navy has been carried out on April 20, 1974, after about two years been subjected to various tests for confirmation. Construction of two to three No. ship is in charge of the Shanghai Jiangnan Shipbuilding Factory, launched in September 24, 1971, the first public trial has been carried out in October 1972. Here was also handed over to the North Sea fleet in November 1974 after the test over two years [1]. The operational test long-term is performed, there is also ES5C type was ship striking the preceding high-volume, but also because its performance and usefulness was not allowed to fully satisfy the Chinese navy. Finally ES5C type three ships is in 1981 was forced to early retirement [2].

Navy order to solve the problem in the initial failure and performance surface revealed in the operational test of ES5C type, and instructed the improvement of the 035-inch in Wuchang Shipbuilding Plant. Performs a ES5D type of design is an improved type of ES5C type in the 701 Research Institute in charge of the design, the same type (ship number 342) is started to built in 1979, was completed in June 1980. ES5D type was also commissioned in the Chinese navy on December 24, 1982 through the various tests over two years. ES5D type, compared with ES5C type, achieve the performance improvements, such as to achieve a 40% speed improvement in water speed. Navy granted the format name of the 035A type approved as a standard design of the 035-type mass-produced the same type [1].

035 type formality of that was started in the late 1960s is postponed until the 1980s through the twists and turns, the construction of the second ship and later mass-produced in a 035A type (ES5D) was undertaken finally in 1987. The cause of this delay is that the 035-type development of the overlap in the turmoil caused by the Cultural Revolution, the design team of the lack of experience and China’s placed the technical level of the problem at the time, gave priority to economic reconstruction from the end of the 1970s new weapons development has been inhibited by the reform release policy, factors such as is in the background.

035A type has a total of four vessels in 1990 was built, but its performance has been a form that was left behind from the capacity building of the national submarine by the delay of development. The 035A type CIC (Combat Information Center: operations room) does not exist, lagged behind even in electronic equipment and overall performance was remarkable. For this reason, the development from 1985, in parallel with the operational testing of the 035A type of improved type of 035A type has been started.

In the improved type 035G (ES5E) type, the basic design while followed the 035A type, weapon systems, sonar, quieter, refurbishment across many fields, such as the occupant of the living environment improvement has been subjected. Many of shipborne equipment has been updated, operational capabilities, survivability, quietness, things of the reliability, improvements in safety were obtained [1].The 035G type, for quieter, has been adopted noise absorbing material, the screw being retrofit to that of small shapes of the noise generator [1]. In a refinement of the weapon system, operation of the conventional interoperable fish -3 type in very deeply degree than Chinese-made torpedo (YU-3) anti-submarine torpedo becomes possible and won the antisubmarine attack ability will be the first in the 035 type series are [1]. Retrofit torpedo control device in a device of the computer control. Sonar is adopted French-made DUUX-5, it has greatly improved the underwater detection performance. 035G type, that sail bottom is protruding slightly forward is in the identification point in appearance [1].

Construction of 035G type (ship number 356) is began in August 1988 in the Wuchang Shipbuilding Plant, the following year launch, it was handed over to the Navy in December 1990. 035G type was formality into 1993 through the operation test of the Navy [1]. 035G type, although between 1990 and 1994, is built in year one ship pace has been carried out, in order to align the number of submarine forces in the advance is depletion of the 033-type submarines, building speed to 1995 and 1999 was increased to two ships a year [1].At the same time, for even before type 035A type, upgrade that conforms to 035G type has been performed [1].

In the 1990s, the new design of the Type 039 submarine (Son type / Song type) but will that is built, initial because it was not put out is quite predetermined performance in such trouble, China from Russia in the Navy 877EKM submarines ( km type) along with the import, was decided to continue the improvement of the 035G-type mass production system are in place.

Improved the format name is given in the 035B type (ES5F) is equipment hull to ensure a mounting space 2m extension, acoustical tile because of quietness improvement is attached to the hull surface [1] [2] . Sail and hand applied to the hull shape, and in particular arranged to the shape of the free flood holes is changed significantly [1]. In the sonar and weapons systems Type 039 submarine (Son type / Song type) various types of equipment that have been developed for has been introduced, operational capability of underwater firing type ship-to-ship missile has been newly assigned [1]. Of 035B type, ship, which was commissioned in November 1999 (the ship number 308) is the hull is further 2m extension, AIP: was built as a test ship of (Air-Independent Propulsion air-independent propulsion) engine [1 ].

[Performance] 035 type series of the hull, but has followed an elongated shape that takes into account also the water navigation of the 033 type, as a result of resistance reduced by the design review of each part has been made, the water speed is 18kts and 033 type the (13kts) was able to more than 5kts [2]. The water speed is above the water speed in the submarine of China is the first is 035 type series.

035-inch size of the full-length 76m, overall width 7.6m, draft 5.1m, water drainage amount of 1,584t, water drainage amount of 2,113t. Hull adopts Fukukara structure. Senkaji that is provided on the bow is possible accommodated. Although the stern provided with up and down two of stability rudder, the upper stability陀is equipped not to 033-inch, it has become one of the 033-inch and distinguish point to 035-inch. Inboard structure is from the front, torpedo compartment, front storage battery compartment, commander compartment, rear storage battery compartment, diesel engine department compartment, has been the placement of motor and propeller shaft system partition [1]. Institutions in the No. 1 ship only 6E390-ZC-type diesel 2 groups (4,800 horsepower), the second ship after being retrofit to improved 6E390-ZC-1 type 2 group (5,200 hp). Storage battery “lead -80” type four. Equipped with a motor 2 groups, the total output of 7,000 horsepower. Equipped with a propeller shaft of the 2 groups, the number of propeller is five.

The speed of the 035-inch (035A type later) Water 15kts / water 18kts, at the time of snorkel use 12kts / 8kts (highest / cruise).Cruising distance is 8,000nm / 9kts on water navigation state, underwater navigation in the snorkel use 1,0380nm / 8kts, when the battery use is 330nm / 4kts. Maximum insidious depth of 300m. Has a strategy execution capability of 60 days, the crew of 58 people (of officers 11 people).

6 Gate bow, stern have been installed torpedo tube of 2 Gate, YU-3A (fish -3 instep) , YU-3B (fish -3 B) , YU-4A (fish -4 instep) , YU-4B (fish -4 B) equipped with a 16 533mm length torpedo such. Torpedo loaded in launch tube is injected by compressed air. 035 type is mine laying capability also has, can be mounted up to 32 shots of the mine to the ship. In 035B type of final production type newlyYJ-82 submarine-launched type anti-ship missile has acquired operational capability of.

[Evaluation] 035 type series, built a total of 23 vessels from 1974 to 2001, 20 ships currently is in the active service. Of 20 vessels, 035A / G type 12 vessels the North Sea Fleet, 035B type 8 boats have been deployed to the South Sea Fleet.

But outdated design and capacity from today point of view, for the results of initial construction ship of the Type 039 submarine (Song type) was not much, was to be mass-produced over a long period of time from the need to align the number [5]. 035 type of performance, 039-inch, there is favorably compared with the new generation of submarines, such as kilometers type, in the Chinese Navy from the fact that a large number of 20 ships have been commissioned high that a combination of a new generation of submarines and 035 type is to be intended for low-mix operation [1].

Since it takes is still a while of time to be updated by the new generation of submarines for the active service of the 035-inch series, intermittently modernization renovated in order to stave off obsolescence of force even a little has been subjected. 035B type of the South Sea Fleet belongs, since 2006, installation of the acoustical tile to the hull, retrofit of sonar, additional installation of satellite communication system is carried out [6], similar modernization also 035A / G type of the North Sea Fleet is being applied [6].

In China Ship Industry Corp (at the time), but 035 type of export-oriented through the mid-1990s from the end of the 1980s the (035ET type) had pitched in each country, North Korea and unlike the conclusion of a contract with the 033 type that has been exported to Egypt it was not able to get [1].

In addition, the North Sea Fleet of 035G type (ship number 361) has filed a case in the training of the inner Changshan archipelago waters of the Yellow Sea in April 2003, that due to human error and mechanical accident the passenger 70 all of whom died [8] [9].After the accident, the ship will be towed to the port, are welfare to active duty on carrying out the repair and refurbishment.
