    Recall that in early October 2017, the Chakra nuclear submarine returned to its base in Vishakhapatnam after a certain incident.

    ... Hindus need to be mercilessly fined (if true) am :
    On November 7, the American publication Strategy Page published material in which, citing sources, it was argued that Russia was postponing repairs to the leased nuclear submarine of India because of suspicions that the Indian military in violation of the lease agreement allows representatives of the US Navy to carefully study Russian submarine. Also, according to the sources of the publication, the Russian side had questions about the degree of damage to the nose cone of the sonar hydroacoustic complex (SAC) of the submarine, which, according to Indian media, the former domestic nuclear submarine K-152 Nerpa of the third generation of project 971I Schuka-B (NATO designation - Akula) received in the base area - near Vishakhapatnam.

    Please tell me what it means to lease a nuclear submarine? I understand that this is not a missile carrier, but nonetheless? What is the idea?

      Yes, it was just a loot that was required. And the fact that we’ve got one or two ships overnight ... well, that’s not the main thing. And as for the Indians, I’ll say .. Probably the mooring to the boat was moored. Demons ..

      As far as I heard, the sale of nuclear submarines is prohibited. Therefore, the submarine is as if leased.

    Such an impression, according to the incidents with this submarine, that the Indians are trying to destroy it with all their might. The monkeys were given a grenade. And they will find the check?

    According to one version, the submarine at high speed was in the underwater position when mechanical damage to the fairing fairing occurred.

    If the Nerpa at a GREAT speed collided with an underwater obstacle, it would look something like this:


    and the fairing was damaged vulgarly when re-mooring. This happens ... But why immediately call the British to "fix" our sonar?

    And here is the official statement of the Indian Navy Civil Code:
    "The incident occurred in early October in the Bay of Bengal near the Indian Naval Base Visakhapatnam during the passage of a narrow strait. As a result of unsuccessful maneuvering, the sonar dome and two panels located in the bow of the submarine were not damaged." - explained the Commander-in-Chief of the Indian Navy, Admiral Sunil Lanba.
