Indian Navy adds third Scorpene class submarine

The Indian Navy received the third Scorpene-class Karanj submarine (S-23). The acceptance certificate was signed on February 15, 2021 at Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders Ltd, located in Mumbai.


The submarine was launched on January 31, 2018, after which it was completed afloat. The launch of sea trials took place at the end of 2019, according to plans, it was supposed to become part of the Indian Navy in 2020, but the transfer was shifted to the right due to the coronavirus pandemic.

INS Karanj (S-23) is the third Scorpene submarine after the lead INS Kalvari (S-21) and the second INS Khanderi (S-22). Three more submarines are at various stages of completion. The fourth Vela submarine (S-24) was launched on May 6, 2019, the fifth Vagir was also launched on November 23, 2020, and the sixth Vagsheer is in the equipment installation phase.

A contract worth $ 3 billion for the licensed construction of six non-nuclear submarines of the Scorpene class was signed 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 factories with the assistance of DCNS, were planned for delivery to the Indian Navy in 2012-2018. However, the construction program was significantly delayed due to the technological problems of the Indian side, as well as disagreements with the French regarding the amount of assistance provided.

The Indian Navy is planning to order another series of non-nuclear submarines, but they have not decided on the winner of the tender, in which, in addition to the two Indian companies Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders and Larsen & Toubro, five foreign companies participate: CDB MT Rubin (Russia), Naval Group (France), ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems (Germany), Navantia (Spain) and Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (South Korea).

    Something I do not believe that the Indians create combat-ready submarines ... Well, it just doesn't work.
    Would any of you risk going to the submarine with the Indians?

          From Sevra, India is being blocked by China. From the West, Pakistan.
          India's main trade routes remain waterways.
          They are still controlled by the States. But the day is not far off when China will take them. Then India will be blocked
          And 3 submarines from France, the weather won't do.
          Therefore, Hindus need to do their own, and for this they need a lot of things, and they do not have this.

            And laziness to google? They have their own series of Arihant missiles in construction. Along the way, they are working on a new project. They are lagging behind the Chinese in pace, but they will have their own nuclear submarine fleet. And before people laugh at Indians, it's worth looking at yourself. What do we have from the diesel-electric submarines apart from the Soviet project Halibut / Varshavyanka and why did the Indians prefer the French?

            Maybe it's not so harsh ... here they agreed on a North-South corridor (St. Petersburg - Mumbai, 20-25 days, instead of 45-60 through Suez), money was invested (India in the Iranian port of Chabahar, Iranians and Azerbaijanis in bridges, railway .... and here it blocks

    The Indian Navy is planning to order another series of nuclear submarines, but they have not decided on the winner of the tender.

    CDB MT "Rubin" (Russia),

    Yes, it would be nice if “Ruby” won the tender, although the competitors are serious

              Tender 75i has been around for many years. Rubin came in with the Amur 1650 project. They admitted it, hoping that the project could be finalized. But looking at the head Lada, Rubin's chances are less than zero.

          It is quite possible for non-nuclear submarines. If only the Ministry of Defense does not pay attention to Amur 950 or does not fork out for further R&D on Kalina. Lapis lazuli is probably slowly producing oak. But Malachite with its Piranhas has already exceeded 1000 tonnes of displacement and is sculpting its VNEU on a closed-cycle turbine. Here is Malachite and can cross the road to Rubin on the submarine. For Rubin, now the most important thing is not to get into a puddle on the running gear with the second hull of the Lada, a modernized project.
