A group of Russian specialists arrived at the Indian Navy base Visakhapatnam to conduct a joint investigation of the accident that occurred in early September on the Indian atomic multi-purpose submarine S 72 Chakra, reports bmpd citing indian media.

Recall that this submarine (K-152 “Nerpa” of the 971I project) was transferred to India by the Russian side for rent in the 2011 year.

About the accident became known in early October. According to reports, the Indian nuclear submarine suffered damage to the radome of the hydroacoustic complex near the base of Vishakhapatnam. The circumstances of the accident were not disclosed, it is not even known whether the boat received damage to the fairing GAK as a result of hitting the ground or as a result of a collision with a floating object.

As the Indian media wrote, the boat received a hole five by five feet in the GAK radome (1,5 m on 1,5 m). The Indian Navy set up a commission to investigate the circumstances of the accident, but its preliminary report (the accident was caused by "technical reasons") did not suit the Russian side. Now there will be a joint investigation into the circumstances of the incident.

        The repaired Indian boats from Severodvinsk left with the factory crews, only to bring to the base

      On the contrary. The chakra was closed tightly. And now she opened
      the boat received a hole five by five feet in the cowl fairing (1,5 m by 1,5 m)

    I don’t understand one thing: to lease a multi-purpose boat to Indians, if they themselves have a severe shortage of multi-purpose nuclear submarines? Instead of intensively modernizing the Shchuk-B project (for example, installing vertical launchers on them), we give away the working submarine, despite the fact that half of our Shchuk fleet is waiting for either repair or modernization. For me, this is complete idiocy.

      it also seems strange to me, perhaps the submarine itself is of no particular interest

        The Schuka-B project was inherently progressive even in the early XNUMXs. These submarines were nicknamed “underwater Mercedes” because of their low-visibility sound. Even now, with the smart modernization of these multi-purpose workers, they will be able to compete with the Ash. Pike has no vertical launchers, which are now “asking” for installation on them. I don’t know how technically feasible it is, but in the case of such a modernization, our “cat”, “wolf” and so on flocks of Pike will deliver no less trouble to the adversary than Ash.

          An interesting question is, how much is India a reliable partner, will it pass on information related to these nuclear submarines to a third party? or all the characteristics of these nuclear submarines is no longer a secret?
          when I first found out that Russia is leasing its nuclear submarines to India, I was a little surprised by this

            Key features have long been no secret to the adversary. And the replacement (in a large series) of Pike is not Ash, but Husky, which has just begun to design. Ash trees are expensive and in their essence they remind us of the Sivulfs, which were technological, efficient and innovative, but wildly expensive. And in light of the cuts in the defense budget, the big question is whether the entire series of Ash-trees in 7 boards will be implemented.
            That is why I am saying from branch to branch that we need a project of a PL-Hunter of the Lyra type, up to 3000 tons, which can be built much faster and in a good series. They can partly assume the functions of multi-purpose nuclear submarines, including covering our Boreans and Dolphins.

              Yes Lyra were great submarines.

              But now it’s more profitable to sell titanium to Boeing and Airbase, nevertheless they pay with currency.

                I emphasized, BY TYPE LIR ... it is not necessary to build titanium nuclear submarines again, steel enough, but with TTX no worse than LIRA.

                And our sailors swim in the pike,

                What did Pike not please you with? Great multipurpose. The only thing they need in today's realities is vertical launchers. For NATO, these multi-purpose targets will be another ten years, or even more, a pain in the ass, and this will be very serious.

                  Pikes are "excellent" submarines, better than standing at the pier and picking your nose!

    That's right, it’s necessary together. And then if without our participation this will be written in the conclusions. The Poles do not know how to rivet us for the accident of their plane for several years. We don’t want to pay or answer ourselves.

    This is our second submarine. The first one sank when loading ammunition in the port. They did not allow ours to be investigated. What conclusions their commission made at the moment do not know.

    Hindus would have straightened their hands, maybe there would have been fewer accidents.
