India: We will respond to the development of the submarine fleet in the activity of China in Pakistan’s Gwadar

21
In command, the Indian naval forces stated that they perceive the development of Chinese infrastructure in the Pakistani port of Gwadar as one of the likely threats to the national security of India. In particular, Admiral Sunil Lanba, Commander-in-Chief of the Indian Navy, said that India has to pay special attention to the activities of the PRC in Gwadar, tracking, among other things, the frequency of appearance of foreign submarines in this region - in the Arabian Sea region.


In connection with the activity on the Indian borders of two geopolitical rivals of India, the country announced the need to intensify work on the development of the naval forces. In particular, it was about intensifying the program for the development of Indian underwater fleet. According to Admiral Sunil Lanba, in recent years, India has built more than 200 different ships. In particular, this number includes the first of six Scorpene class submarines, which was built at a shipyard in Mumbai.

From the statement of the commander in chief of the Indian Navy:
Submarines are the silent arm of our fleet and an integral part of our naval strategy. The ongoing projects for the construction of submarines mark a new chapter in the development of our submarine fleet.

At the same time, the Indian Navy notes that the program for launching submarines built at Indian shipyards is clearly stalled. The main problem is that India has problems with obtaining all the necessary technologies for the timely implementation of the project. The initial plans were for the Indian Navy to receive 2030 new Indian-built submarines by 24, the year of the Indian Navy. Now, in the case of obtaining all the necessary technologies, India will have to put 2 submarines a year in order to fulfill the plan on time.

It is reported that India has previously entered into agreements on the use of technology with companies such as Naval Group, Rosoboronexport, ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems and Saab.

      - These "cockroaches" are already more than 50 years old. Disputed territories are called.
      Because of this strategically important plateau, where the borders of China, Tibet, India and the Kingdom of Bhutan meet, the parties fought in 1962. The confrontation escalated two months ago when Chinese military engineers began preparations for the construction of a mountain road on a plateau site. Indian troops came into collision with them.
      - The impudence of China is opposed to the intransigence of India. And who are we rooting for?

        You didn’t take into account that it was London that peculiarly divided its colonies on the Hindustan, thereby planting a time bomb, so that everyone has their own truth and they have to root for everyone. hi

      Yes, normal, their fleet will still develop at our shipyards. This is our extra income. The same Warsaw women from China have 10 pieces, and India still leads us by the nose, they have been considering something for almost two decades now. I hope this fact will give impetus in the decision, in favor of our submarines of course. bully

    Which is to be expected. Earlier at VO discussed options on this subject. request

      For India, Pakistan is the same sore subject as Ukraine is for us, the Anglo-Saxons thoroughly slandered there, and the whales do not play a good role

    They will build 2 boats a year, only if they work for real! Yes, and crew training is still a problem - the Indians, probably the first and only country in the world whose submarines can go at least in the deckhouse, as you like, but not as needed, or not like in other countries of the world.

      Muslims in India are the second largest and make up 14%; they don’t let blood into each other. Maybe you were wrong? India is worried that China is rearming Pakistan, grabs over Tibet, border conflicts and disputed territories. But the Indians have obvious problems with the military industrial complex.

    The country's defense is holy and the construction of boats is quite natural (the amount is embarrassing). But it is not better to drop all ambitions (in territories, etc.) and follow the example of the cat Leopold. One of the conditions of the World is not to deal with the United States. Your potential enemies have understood.

    There is no need to develop BRICS in order to consolidate and confront the main hegemon, so no, their narrow ambitions amuse the elder for fun. And that one rubs his hands - divide and conquer.

    I don’t know such countries to which the construction technologies of submarines / submarines / submarines / submarines / submarines were transferred, ready boats yes, but I don’t remember this technology ....
    In addition, there are not many countries capable of building even diesel-electric submarines ...
