indian Submarine Crisis

Share on Facebook

The important points of the report were:

*Only seven of India’s 16 submarines are available for combat at any time.

* 10 of these 16 ageing submarines will be due for phase-out by 2012.

* To maintain current numbers, one submarine needs to be inducted
every two years but there’s been no addition since 2001.

* India’s only submarine-making facility in Mumbai was kept idle for 12 years.

The gaping hole in India’s naval capability is showing.
