Third Scorpene for the Indian Navy launched

18
For the Indian Navy built a third submarine type Scorpene. According to the portal indiatimes.com, at the shipyard of Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders Ltd, located in the city of Mumbai, a solemn launching ceremony of the Karanj submarine took place.


Launching the Karanj submarine marked a significant departure from the philosophy of manning and training sailors, which was adopted for the first two submarines. Starting from the third submarine, our fleet will be completely independent in training and certification processes.
- said the commander of the Indian Navy, Admiral Sunil Lanba.

Third Scorpene for the Indian Navy launched


A contract worth $ 3 billion for the licensed construction of six non-nuclear Scorpene-type submarines was concluded by India with the French shipbuilding association DCN (now DCNS) in 2005. Under the terms of the agreement, six boats, which were to be built at the MDL plants with the assistance of DCNS, were scheduled for delivery to the Indian Navy in 2012 – 2018. However, the construction program was significantly delayed due to technological problems of the Indian side, as well as disagreements with the French regarding the amount of assistance provided.

Submarines of the Scorpene type were designed by the French company DCNS for the needs of the French Navy, but after the French military department abandoned diesel-electric submarines in favor of nuclear ones, the project became an export one. The first submarine of the Scorpene type for the Indian Navy was commissioned in December last year. More than two years have passed since its launch into service, since there were no heavy Black Shark torpedoes - the main armament of these submarines. The tender for their purchase was canceled in May 2016, due to a corruption scandal. What kind of torpedoes Indian submarines are arming now - they don’t specify in the military, reports "Warspot"

      Judging by the photo, it's just a rag. The folds are visible from above.

        Apparently it became a little expensive to keep French instructors to train subsequent crews ... As if again in the military port of Mumbai, the fate of the villain would not repeat the story of the Sindurakshak, the former Russian woman, with the French women.
        But ...

          request So maybe the French sank?
          Versions of the causes of the incident:
          Russian experts call the following versions: sabotage, hydrogen leakage from the battery pit, violation of the rules of work on equipment and technical failure of one of the systems. As a result of one of these reasons, the warhead exploded. The version of the spontaneous explosion of ammunition is rejected by most experts. Russia has offered India assistance in the investigation

            Versions of the causes of the incident:

            1. This is not an incident, but a disaster - the complete destruction of an object ...
            2. The French have nothing to do with it ... the "exploiters" themselves are to blame.
            3. The reasons are obvious: before the explosion, there was a "race" of jet propulsion KRLF ...
            4. Who conducts the PPS and PPR on the missile system in the presence of weapons on board? It’s the same as cleaning with a ramrod, a loaded gun from the barrel.
            Somehow, however ... yes

    ".... because of the technological problems of the Indian side, as well as disagreements with the French ..." that's interesting: the Indians at least collaborated with some of the partners "without disagreements" ?! They starve in any negotiations !!!

      That's right, India is now more and more friends with the United States.
      By the way, in the United States the largest number of Hindu billionaires is a huge base for bribing senators and ministers (or what is the meaning of corruption here? Lobbyism!)

    "... launching of the Karanj submarine ...."
    The name is somehow ... like "TROUBLE" by captain Vrungel.
    consonant with the word "bury"
