India starts building 6 nuclear-powered attack submarines

In what might be a huge boost to India’s indigenous defence production capabilities, the nation has commenced the process to build 6 nuclear powered submarines. Their induction in the navy’s armada is expected to significantly increase the Navy’s strike capabilities in the face of China’s growing belligerence in the Indo-pacific region.

Being a classified project, not many details are known but as per Navy chief Admiral Sunil Lanba, the process has started.

As per Admiral Lanba, the Indian Navy would play a pivotal role in the Indo-Pacific region where a golden quadrilateral of India, Australia, Japan and the US is proposed to take shape. Lanba was quoted as saying, “all are aware of the prevailing security scenario in the maritime domain and the continued presence of both traditional and non-traditional threats demand constant attention and robust mitigating measures.”

In 2016, INS Arihant was commissioned as India’s first ingenious nuclear powered submarine. After India inducts 6 more such warships, it would not only become a fearsome naval force, it would also become a strong force in defence manufacturing.

We had recently reported how DRDO too is making very impressive strides in defence production after it developed India’s first unmanned remotely operated tank. The tank named Muntra was rolled out of DRDO’s Chennai lab.

This tank can chiefly be used in three ways that are surveillance, mine detection and reconnaissance. It can also operate in areas which have nuclear and bio hazards.

India is also significantly progressing in the field of Nuclear power. We had recently reported how work was supposed to begin at Rooppur Nuclear Power plant in Bangladesh, which is India’s first overseas atomic venture.

This upcoming nuclear power plant is being built via an Indo-Russian collaboration and its “first pouring of concrete” ceremony was to take place on 30th November. This has been conveyed to New Delhi and the ceremony would take place at Rooppur which is about 169 kilometres.
