Commander of the Indian Navy visited the French shipyard Naval Group

The first multi-purpose submarine is to join the French Navy next year.

Naval Group (formerly DCNS) is the largest French warship manufacturer. She is also engaged in the construction of six Scorpene boats for the Indian Navy at the Mazagon Dock Limited in Mumbai under the contract 2005.

“The visit of the Commander-in-Chief of the Navy took place at a time when India was on the verge of unprecedented growth in the power of its underwater fleet. India plans to build three types of submarines: diesel and two nuclear (for three different projects). The implementation of these projects, with an estimated price of more than $ 28 billion, will take the next ten years, ”the material says.

It is noted that "the emergence of interest in India to the submarine class" Barracuda "takes a countdown in 2007, when delegations of senior officers of the Indian Navy reported on the capabilities of the boat, which was still under development."

According to analysts in the field of naval forces, the Barracuda “gives hope to the fleet to integrate three different projects into one project - the naval submarine, the multipurpose nuclear submarine and the SSBN; in particular, the reactor may become a phenomenon that radically changes the situation, since it is believed that the Navy need a new type of reactor that can provide energy to both the multi-purpose boat and the SSBN of a new generation. ”

The fact that the delegation of the Indian Navy submarine "Barracuda" was impressed, said by the fact that they asked the DCNS the question of whether France would agree to help India in the development of technology to create a reactor. The answer of the French side is not unexpected - this question will need to be considered at the political level.

According to the resource, at the present time “there is no clear ban on trade in nuclear facilities between countries belonging to the“ group of five ”and countries that do not have nuclear weaponsbut this has not been done so far. ”

    The Indians precisely bargain the French for renting a "barrocuda", damage it when mooring, and declare that the boat is full of junk that does not want to dance! !! wassat In short, everything will be, as always, on-duty brainwave to the French for many years. Song, worse than with "rafals" !!!

    India is a great country. But how do they manage to combine launches into space, brainy programmers, pharmaceuticals with the stink of urine ... in Delhi in the streets and trash in the Taj Mahal 300 meters away? I was there by the will of fate, not out of a pleasant sensation. Ganges, so finally kapets-probably compete with the Moscow river ..
    So, whatever the great Hindu ranks in France would do there (corruption is Tryndets), the result will be the same - everything is flying bad, the submarines are burning.
    And granules will settle in the enclosed villas of Indian generals.

      Oh no! Moscow - the river is clean! In the city, a kilometer from the Council of Ministers building, they are caught opposite Cityakiras (and they live only in clear water!).
