“The tests were conducted on 7 and 31 in March in the south of the Bay of Bengal. The firing range was 3,5 thousand. Km, “- said the source.

According to him, “these were the second and third tests of K-4”. The rocket was first tested in March 2014, “however, the details of this test remain unknown,” the source added.

At the same time, the portal notes that the government of India denies the existence of K-4.

Meanwhile, as previously reported, New Delhi is negotiating with Moscow to lease a second Russian nuclear submarine. Moreover, according to media reports, Premier Narendra Modi insists on the transfer of the most modern submarine to the Indian Navy.

The first NPS, the Nerpa, was leased to the Indian side at 2012 for a period of 10 years. In India, it is called "Chakra."

    It’s interesting from which submarine the launch was made ...

      It seems to me that this is not purely an Indian missile, probably it wasn’t without ours.

        Maybe it didn't work out, but it doesn't matter anymore. It is important that India is taking the leading role in the world in rocketry. Suffice it to recall the PSLV launch vehicle that delivered the Mangalyan probe to Mars. By the way, India is the only country that managed to do this on the first try. It says something.

            Dear Indians are beaten, but they have their own component base. And the fact that we will share our developments with them, and they with us - our own, there is nothing wrong.

        I think they will be a submarine 4 as opposed to Pakistan and China, and they will bring the rocket!

      Most likely not from a submarine, but from a test bench.

    What is this paragraph for? Are they asking "Northwind" ??? We have no other modern SLBMs yet!
    Or again, "Russia is to blame"?

    I’m not sure if we consider our failure with our solid fuel, I don’t think that the Indians wanted to turn to MIT for help when developing their own.

          No. The man clearly wrote that we do not know how to solid fuel. He did not specify a specific rocket.

            So the same people who made it cannot finish the poor Bulava.
            Today, we have a new rocket, 50% of which may simply not fly.
            It was here that the Indians understood that it’s better to try on their own — worse, it certainly won’t.

              In what sense can not finish? Are you not confused by the fact that from 13 to 24 launches there was only one failure? Those. Of the 12 missiles, only one did not reach.

                identical missiles to understand what’s the catch. Probably about 12, 11 and 12 launches - should I also not remember? hi

                  And what have 11 and 12 starts to do with it? You say you can’t finish the rocket. So from the 13th launch, only one was unsuccessful. By your logic, it turns out that the tridents are also raw threshing floor, because at first they had unsuccessful starts. Nonsense.

                    I beg you - you want the Tridents - but for God's sake - they have been tested for three years (and not 11 years as the Mace), all the problems have been eliminated, which arose again when starting from the boat - also - a good and reliable rocket is output.
                    Let’s count right from the 20th - all launches are successful - the effect is achieved.
                    Give the special forces, every 5th cartridge is defective - I'm afraid to imagine where they will put them in the giver.

    Something with the name of some kind of misunderstanding. What are the secret tests, if all and sundry are writing about them? Maybe it’s better: "India is testing a secret missile"?
