Indian Navy Outlines Plan for Nuclear Submarine INS Chakra

The Indian Navy is hoping to have individual say in running the nuclear submarine INS Chakra, which will be under the strategic forces command.The strategic forces command is jointly run by the army, air force and the navy.The Akula class nuclear sub, to be acquired from Russia on a 10- year lease, is expected to be delivered to India in six to eight months.Sources say the submarine will be based on a coast that has the best logistical infrastructure such as maintenance facilities for a sea-based nuclear asset.

Besides, the waters near the coast would have to be sufficiently deep for the sub.One of the key operational elements of Chakra would be to train nuclear submariners of the Indian forces, as the pool of trained navy men of the 1980s has retired by now. They were those who had cut their teeth on the first INS Chakra, a Charlie class nuclear submarine that had been leased by the Rajiv Gandhi government from Russia. That submarine was returned at the end of its lease period in 1992................................IndiaToday

another lease eh....

can't they like, buy or construct a nuclear sub?

Or is INdia as poor as everyone thinks?

Another Lease?

You mean the only lease, since no other country in the world would lease out its most advanced submarines except RUSSIA, and it will only do it for its partner India.

Beggar Pakis like you are retarded and cannot ever realize this fact because your mentality allows you to accept welfare checks, just like your country in general

Also don't you know more than 3 submarines of the Nuclear Arihant class are being constructed?

or are you still living in denial?

I suppose the average Pakjabi needs to believe the fiction of an impoverished India to sleep peacefully in the night.

Lol why are some people so insulting? Bookz look at UN HDI rankings. India and Pakistan are both improverished according to UN.

This dog eater Type99 is forgetting that China is also impoverished, and its people are eating dogs for nutrition.

Filthy Chink

Ok loser, how much they pay you, to show how good India is? Only a moron would do this for free.
