Rise of India’s Nuclear Submarine Fleet

This video shows you that “Rise of India’s Nuclear Submarine Fleet”
Nuclear-powered submarine on Lease from Russia “INS Chakra ” might be Sole operational Nuclear submarine in Indian Navies fleet in 2015, but Indian government and Indian navy have drafted impressive fleet expansion plan with key focus area been induction of more Nuclear-propelled submarines in next 15 years. In 1999 Cabinet Committee on Security, (CCS) had approved 30-year submarine-building plan, which envisaged induction of 12 new submarines by 2012, followed by another dozen by 2030. Delays in construction of submarines in Project-75 and delays in getting approvals in setting up Project-75I means original deadline will be missed by a mile and development of Nuclear technology in house means focus too has shifted from acquiring conventional diesel submarines to nuclear powered ones .
INS Arihant India’s first indigenously built nuclear-powered submarine (SSBN) is already conducting Sea trials and will soon be ready for testing of weapons which will include K-15 and K-4 Ballistic system and will officially join Indian navy by end of 2016 . Second submarine (INS Aridhaman ) or S-3 is already in advanced stages of fabrication and likely will be launched by year end. Last Submarine dubbed S-4 too is under construction and will be ready by 2018 for Sea Trails. 3 Arihant Sister class of ships will complete first leg of Nuclear triad. There is also strong Indication that 2 more follow-up order of Arihant class ships will be built , 2 Ships will be similar to Arihant but will have improved Weapons systems and will be first Submarine able to carry new class of SLBM which will be K-5 SLBM with range of more then 5000km still under development
Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) last year also cleared construction of 6 new nuclear-powered general-purpose attack submarine (SSN) to be undertaken at the secretive ship-building center (SBC) at Vizag. New SSN Subs will be similar to Arihant class in Size but will be heavy influenced by Akula-2 technology and Indian Navy and DRDO are working closely in studying and improving Stealth aspect of the yet to be constructed submarines. According to Ex Naval officers, Submarine will take 8-9 years before roll out can happen of new submarines and in next two years design will be finalized and a parallel production line will be setup. SSN will be armed with BrahMos-NG which can be Tube-launched and also carry Naval variant of Nirbhay Cruise system.

    A super power needs 20 nuclear super aircraft carriers, 100 sub Marines, 500 ibsm of 20000 kms range, 50 ibsm for 1 light year range ,10 million army , navy and airforce joint personnel . Missile defence system with Mach 15 range and 5000 fighters aircrafts with Mach 9 speed and 10000 helicranes with Mach 4 speed 2000 with min payload of 20-100 tons. Which country can achieve this target in next 20 years …. USA,China, India or any other….wait and watch..

    06:10 Wow! a "new" PLWR Pressurized Light Water Reactor. PLWR is OLD COLD WAR 1950's Tech. Do you realize that at over 500 Celsius, needed to flash drive water to steam in the exchanger, these reactors operate at several atmospheres of pressure? The Packies find & depth charge the living shit out of the Indian Navy sub, & a coolant pipe to the heat exchanger ruptures. I'm sure they have emergency batteries and an auxiliary diesel to run the generator crucial to pump water over the core to prevent core damage, even after the control rods are in and reactions have stopped. Even a shut down PLWR retains much heat for a few hours. No coolant = K-19 disaster.
    The best option is a LFTR type reactor. If they don't want to use the "Thorium cycle" the fuel can be U-235 or plutonium as well. The fuel consists of a Liquid "Salt" & granulated fissile U 235. As it passes through the solid graphite moderator core, the fuel undergoes fission. The liquid salt operates at around 950-1100 Celsius AT LOW PRESSURE! The fuel salt goes to a heat exchanger and turns water into turbine steam. If pumps fail or it gets to hot a safety plug will melt sending the fuel to a holding tank where all it can do is cool down. It can not maintain criticality outside the core. Much more safe and efficient.

    speed up submarine build up please.

    night good nice

    Indian navy should induct minimum of 20 nuclear submarines in order to maintain its fleet and to escape from Chinese attacks in future jai hind.
