    I have a feeling we are passing more nuclear technology to Brasil than let on. 26 guys going to a French institute is not enough to develop SSN reactors.

    Hello all, this is my first post here.

    So, straight to the point... Armand2REP, no, you are not because no nuclear technology is being transfered by France to Brazil. The nuclear reactor and all nuclear related technology is going to be developed by Brazil and its institutes. Those 26 engineers are in France to learn solely about naval building techniques for nuclear submarines, such as how to weld its hull (it's way harder than we think), etc. I'm not blaming France, don't worry, it's just that it isn't in the contract that France should transfer anything nuclear-related to Brazilian Navy. I think it is prohibited by UN.

    Russia helped design Indian and Chinese submarine reactors so it isn't prohibited by the UN. You don't have to ToT in order to provide consultations and experts. We already have to figure out how to install it, so there are going to be designs made by France for the reactor.

    Wiki page on Brazil and weapon of mass destruction says Brazil have the capabilities to make her own nuclear reactor and nothing till now suggest its a french design or technology, maybe to the most France can help with the safety practice for safe handling with their experience, I believe it will be a Brazilian self effort to get one.

    There is a big difference between making a nuclear reactor for electricity and one for a nuclear submarine. Miniaturization of the reactor for Arihant took India ages.

    I never said it was a Russian design, I said they helped design it.

    Redesigning to fix issues is technological help. That is the same kind of help France will give Brasil imo.

    we already have nuclear sub tech, plus french are bringing above model with nuclear reactor for long time, it is high time that they deliver this on scorpene submarine to India.

    Brazil has a good technology base and expertise.

    And a whole lot of Nazi scientists who must have passed on their knowledge and expertise!

    The town of Pomerode, Santa Catarina has 90% of the population who are Brazilians of German descent,

    Argentina had more!
