Launched second Indian nuclear submarine

According to the Indian magazine India Today (almost a month after the event), on November 19, 2017, in the secrecy of the Indian state shipbuilding company Ship Вuilding Center (SBC) in Visakhapatnam, the second Indian nuclear submarine of national construction was launched, which received name Arighat. The completion of the ship is carried out in a closed mooring complex-boathouse SBC. It is planned that the boat will go into operation of the Indian fleet in 2020-2021, the bmpd blog writes.

Launched second Indian nuclear submarine

One of the few publicly available high-quality images of the national headquarters of the Indian nuclear submarine of the national construction S 73 Arihant. The picture was taken in the summer of 2014, in Visakhapatnam, even before Arihant went to factory trials

The head Indian nuclear submarine S 73 Arihant was launched by construction on the SBC in 1998 and launched on July 26 2009. The physical launch of the nuclear reactor on the boat was performed on 10 August 2013 of the year, and the boat entered the factory running tests 15 December 2014 of the year. In August 2016, the Arihant submarine was unpublicized transferred to the Indian Navy, although in fact it continues to be in the testing phase.

The second one-type Arighat boat was actually launched by construction in the 2009 year and officially laid on the SBC in July of the 2011 year, launched now.

It is reported that at present the following two nuclear submarines under the symbols S4 and S4⃰ are in the initial stage of construction on SBC. According to Indian sources, the submarine S4⃰ refers to a modified project approved in 2012 and will have a displacement of approximately 1000 more The length of 10 meters is greater than Arihant, Arighat and S4 (the surface displacement of which is estimated at 6000 tons, and the length is 111,6 meters).

Boats built under the ATV program are nuclear submarines. The first three Arihant-type boats as the main armament should nominally carry four (previously mistakenly asserted 12) developed in India under the direction of DRDO K-15 Sagarika underwater launch ballistic missiles with a nuclear charge of all 700-750. The S4⃰ boat will receive an additional 10-meter missile compartment with four more K-15 missiles, which will increase their number by boat to eight. The first practical launch of the K-15 rocket from the Arihant submarine was carried out on 31 March 2016.

        The enemy of the Indians is understandable. Coastal countries in the region.
        Why the heck to push such money into something that will never be used? This is a scrap from the beginning. As if they themselves were not blown up to hell with the dogs.
        They did not think on elephants to deliver a nuclear charge to the enemy?

          It is in order to never use it. So that the neighbor of India does not have bad thoughts that but you can probably disable all Indian nuclear forces with one blow.
          In addition, train better on cats - The practice of building, training crews and operating nuclear submarines with OTP will be useful to Indians for their future SSBNs.

              Simulator built SSBNs. smile
              In addition, the most complete submarine simulator “in the kit” is the boat itself. Because, PMSM, it is quite difficult to imitate the same crimping of the case.

          These are the Indian border guards at the parade in honor of the local 9 May.
          Their Strategic Rocket Forces will look about the same.

            With what joy to “favor” such experts))) I wonder where those “experts” who have not so long ago been clever in wit about the Chinese armed forces and their military-industrial complex have gone?

      Although the power plant and the fuel for it are produced in India itself, at the DAE enterprises near the city of Mysore. How Indians are independent in these developments

    On the one hand, the road will be overpowered, on the other hand, by the time they learn to build apl, the death star will go into the series.

      Not in all contours, but in the form of OP - directly 667 with all letters of the project. In general terms - it was designed and built on the principle: "From the world on a string, bare rope." In any case, good luck to the submariners, number of dives = number of ascent. drinks
