    They had come even in 1971 war and that sub too was detected and engaged by our ships. As I had written many times, we keep track of everyship/sub entering IOR and we had known that they do make forays here. There are no jitters in IN. We trail them whenever they come here.

  6. the indian navy has capability to detect any kind of nuclear/conventional submarine activity going on in indian ocean be it russian,chinese,american.british,french, or paki sub.don't think we are absolutely defenceless against a submarine as is propagated in the headlines today programme.we have our own subs,ins akula,tu142s,p-8i,shipborne asw helis etc is a pretty strong force for now though with time we need a much much bigger force.

    You guys completely missed the plot in that story. What were Indian subs doing in Malacca st or Redsea or in Persian Gulf that they ran into chinese subs?
    Think and apply your brains guys. We maintain round the clock war patrolling of these waters.

    Why should it send any chills down India? That it was detected tells us we are capable in detecting subs. And what use will the P8s be of? It would have send chills if we had not detected the sub and came to know later.

    No big deal here. Indian Navy has this one covered.

    Apparently QuickTime can't be embedded with video tag?

    Folks: The thing is are we able to detect every intrusion in our backyard. Even if we are able to detect, then what?? If we see the video, there its mentioned that china is getting hardware in huge quantity and decent enough quality(?). Atleast improving their quality. So how do we cope with this realty once they start operating from gwadar and possibly burma N sri lanka??

    It is a good thing... This might get MoD to speedup sub acquisition.

    I saw a TV discussion on this issue where there was Cmde Bhaskar (analyst) and retired Adm Singh, who is from the submarine arm.

    Bhaskar was skeptical that they were all Chinese subs since China he said did not have the capability as yet.

    Yet, the difference in force ratio between the Indian and the Chinese Navy was indeed alarming!

    I would not mind the IN use this as a propaganda tool to spook the govt to get more funding for more subs of its own, more attack subs more boomers, more ASW platforms.

    This is just the start.

    Last time they did not have friendly naval bases in the IOR. Now they have one and potentially two.

    This is the price of running the entire foreign policy on the basis of fear.

    No the fear of tiny countries waving the China card and allowing ourselves to be blackmailed while at the same time having no impact on the ground.

    p.s: GoI does not care or fear for internal domestic situation.

    If India had made the Hambantota port, we would not have seen this day. Thanks to Tamils, India didn't take up the offer.

    Hambantota land was allocated to China in 2005.

    Thank you.


    How cute that GoI did not care for Tamil sentiments and went ahead with the support to Sinhalas to kill tens of thousands of them but respected Tamil sentiments not to construct Hambantota..::confused:..lol sell your bull shit to some one else.

    Talking to a fanatic Tamil about SL is like banging head on a stone wall.
