The military-industrial complex of India officially confirmed the ability to build submarines. According to the portal navaltoday.comSeptember 23, the first submarine built on Indian territory, was adopted fleet.


The company Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders Ltd, engaged in the construction of Kalvari-type submarines, officially handed over to the Indian Navy a submarine of the same name completed last year. Due to the lack of heavy Black Shark torpedoes in India (the main armament of this type of submarine), Kalvari tests have been significantly delayed.

India adopted the first submarine of its own production.

The contract for the construction of six diesel-electric submarines of the Scorpene type (known as Kalvari in India) was signed between the Ministry of Defense of India and the French company DCNS in 2004. According to the contract, the first submarine was to be built in 2012 year, but today the implementation of the program is three years behind the deadline, and the cost of it has increased from the planned $ 3 billion ($ 500 million for each submarine) to more than $ 4 billion

Submarines of the Scorpene type were designed by the French company DCNS for the needs of the French Navy, but after the French military department abandoned diesel-electric submarines in favor of nuclear ones, the project became an export one. To date, submarines of this type are built for the Navy of Chile, Malaysia, India and Brazil. In addition, interest in the "Scorpion" show the military departments of other countries, reports "Warspot".

    And the countries are arming themselves and arming themselves ... At one fine moment, all this can very loudly flop.
    Well, India, in particular, it’s high time to go out into the vast ocean. And let them start with diesel engines, although it’s sad that not with our “Varshavyanka” ...

      They try to organize production at home. Unlike the Chinese copiers, somewhere in a dead end, Indians take technology officially. This does not mean that we should give them everything in a row. So a bunch of joint projects, the same Bramos, etc. Do you want the Indian Varshavyanka cheaper at our cost, to appear on the arms market? Varshavyanka is a very advanced and complex weapon and promising for modernization, without falling into the charm of all kinds of VNEU, but falling into euphoria from Caliber, let’s say that they live with the Scarpenes, etc.

So here ... The usual thing is fine-tuning complex projects ...

      Hindus work with different engineering schools to eliminate dependency on anyone. At the same time, they hope to create their own advanced culture of production, but with their caste foundations significantly impede the evolution of production.
      In turn, modern Russia is becoming like India with its estates (brahmanas, kshatriyas, etc.): Familiar or have money - get education and work regardless of abilities, no - sit and do not rock the boat.

    I wouldn’t trust the French in their place. Eternally, you can expect all sorts of nasty things from them, like English lemongrass.

      The French came in to whom they could only their boats. Weak for the hardships of war.

        But in more detail about how "the French are bringing in their unsuitable for war submarines"? And why are their boats “weak”, in which place?
