          The Indian nuclear submarine was based on Soviet Project 670 Skat submarines, then this project was reoriented to the construction of ballistic submarines.

          I don’t see any external similarity ... if only by TTX

          Maybe before there was a photo of Ohio, but now there is clearly not Ohio, but just the same photo of a real Indian boat. Ohio has a horizontal deck after the felling and there is no such hump in the side view (from the camera angle). The article says that the boat is a Russian project, but it is not specified whether this project was made special. for India. If our "Ruby" did it, then it did a special. for the Indians, since we simply do not have a project with such an appearance.

            Colleague, you are absolutely right! Now the moderators, having woken up and sipped a tea, have replaced the photo with an identical Arihantu. But before that there was a photo of "Red Island" SSBN740. Unfortunately, this happens on the site.

        Agency's note: “The Arihant submarine was built according to a Russian project and will become the first Indian nuclear submarine of its own production.

        This is sheer stupidity. fool I would like to ask the author of this statement, what exactly is in the design of the Russian SSBN "Arihant"? The design of the Indian nuclear-powered ship partly repeats Soviet Submarine pr.670. A boat of this type was leased to India in the late 80s. The main weapons of Indian submarines are 12 ballistic missiles K-15 Sagarika, having a flight range of 700 km and belonging to the class of medium-range missiles. In the future, it is planned to rearm Indian SSBNs with longer-range ballistic missiles.

        The main armament of the ships is 12 K-15 Sagarika ballistic missiles with a flight range of 700 km and belonging to the class of medium-range missiles. The last successful launch of such a rocket took place on February 26, 2009. Subsequently, it is planned to re-equip submarines with Agni-3 ballistic missiles, which have a flight range of 3500 km. The missile silos are located behind a solid wheelhouse and are directed vertically. Shaft covers do not protrude beyond the superstructure contours. Torpedo armament is represented by six bow torpedo tubes of 533 mm caliber. The Indian nuclear submarine was based on Soviet submarines of Project 670 "Skat", then this project was reoriented to the construction of ballistic submarines. hi

It was an unknown weapon, Iron Lightning, a giant messenger of death, which turned to ashes all the people of Vriskhni and Andhaka. Their bodies were terribly burned. Their hair and nails fell out, their pottery cracked for no apparent reason, and all the birds in the area turned white feathers.

      We help India as a counterweight to China. We have no common borders with her (Well, of course, if Volfovich did not change his mind about washing his boots in the Indian Ocean!) By the way, the States, too, afraid of the PRC, are helping the Hindus with the acquisition of modern weapons. India has a controversy with Pakistan, which is supported by China. Therefore, to keep the balance in balance, we transfer our weapons to the Hindus (971pr), jointly develop BrahMos, transfer technologies to RCC, tanks, and fighters. Now 5 is muddied by the generation of PAK FA.
      So, India is not only a trading partner, but also our military-technical partner. But we are selling to China what they cannot copy, although they are trying very hard.
