    So this faculty is builted to have communication with our Nuclear submarine fleet. Btw, Since this new faculty is builted by a western company, Is there any kind of risk like finding our nuke subs?


    The IN Tu-142 aircrafts will also used to maintain communication with the Nuclear Submarines.

    Somebody decided to trust the Russians. Probably superior to Admiral Nirmal Verma, chief of the naval staff of the Indian Navy (IN)

    The Russians know far more about us than just this station.

    Rubin Design Bureau is the primary foreign partner for Arihant. They know pretty much everything about our nuke sub capability.

    The fact is we trust them, so there is little issue here.

    'ELF communication' is jam proof from both natural and man-made interference can communicate for long distances.
    Circumstances in which conventional communications channels have been disrupted or destroyed, Plays an important role in 'Second Strike'.


    What is 'Second Strike'?
    -- --
    In nuclear strategy, a second-strike capability is a country's assured ability to respond to a nuclear attack with powerful nuclear retaliation against the attacker. To have such an ability (and to convince an opponent of its viability) is considered vital in nuclear deterrence, as otherwise the other side might be tempted to try to win a nuclear war in one massive first strike against its opponent's own nuclear forces.
    The 'nuclear triad' is a way for countries to diversify their nuclear arsenals in order to better ensure second strike capability.

    'Submarine-launched ballistic missiles' are the traditional, but very expensive, method of providing a second strike capability.

    Second strike - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    'Mutual assured destruction' (MAD):

    Mutual assured destruction (MAD) theory(Robert McNamara) is a doctrine of military strategy in which a full-scale use of nuclear weapons by two opposing sides(nations) would effectively result in the destruction of both the attacker and the defender.It is based on the theory of deterrence according to which the deployment of strong weapons is essential to threaten the enemy in order to prevent the use of the very same weapons. The strategy is effectively a form of Nash equilibrium, in which both sides are attempting to avoid their worst possible outcome— Dooms Day (Nuclear annihilation).
