Indian Navy denies data on the detection and blocking of its submarine in the territorial waters of Pakistan


On October 19, the information division of the Pakistani armed forces issued a report that on October 16, a submarine of the Indian Naval Forces allegedly entered the territorial waters of the Islamic republic. She was soon discovered by a Pakistani patrol plane. The Indian military began to claim that the boat passed about 140-150 nautical miles from Karachi, and it could be a submarine of any country. Indian submarines, according to representatives of the country's navy, did not enter Pakistani territorial waters.

In turn, the Pakistani military argue: this is not the first such incident involving Indian submarines. Behind the dithyrambs on duty to the Pakistani Air Force and Navy, which did not allow the boat to enter the territorial waters, there is a certain alarm of Islamabad. Apparently, the confrontation between the two largest South Asian countries, which are also nuclear powers, in addition to the Kashmir mountains, also passes into the sea space, including into its depths.

The Indian Navy has much more potential than the Pakistani Navy. Firstly, India has a much larger number of ports and is washed by the ocean on several sides. Secondly, for a long time India has paid special attention to the development of its naval forces, and now it also enjoys significant support in this direction from the United States, Great Britain and Australia, which see India as a counterbalance to the growing influence of China in the Indo-Pacific region.

In terms of the number of personnel, the Indian Navy is almost three times larger than the Pakistani Navy (58 350 versus 23 800 people). India has at least 15 submarines against 8 Pakistani submarines, it has aircraft-carrying cruisers. Thus, India poses an even greater threat to Pakistan at sea than on land.

      It is not even known there: "Was there a boat?" Because of this, the conflict is unlikely to start, but Jammu and Kashmir are serious and for a long time.

      This is not about the British. The border of two civilizations passes here. And if Hinduism is not noticed in excessive aggressiveness, then Islam longs for expansion in the best traditions of Catholic missionary work. Moreover, he does not renounce the Holy Inquisition either.

    The confrontation was, is and will be. Even if we imagine the impossible today - they will resolve their claims to each other in the negotiations, then where is the guarantee that tomorrow a conflict will not break out solely on religious grounds.

    The Indians have modern mattress anti-submarine aircraft. It will be extremely difficult for Pakistan with the submarine fleet.

    you need to unite these two countries into one, as it was many years ago. Only for it to be India. I have had a dislike for Pakistan since 1987.
