    Hmmm so if the reactor is becoming operational only now means that the sea acceptance trail has not even begun. So this is delayed from early 2013 again X(

    Boss I dont think there is any ambiguity here .Indian ATV progress has been very well followed by the international media.
    Anyways
    Did you notice that the news Item of the China incursion in not even in the top news these days. We have moved on to other top national matters like coalgate and champoins trophy..WTF.
    We might get or develop the capability to fire a missile to the moon from 2000ft undersea also...but that still matters nothing if we dont have strong leaders capable of taking decisions.

    @vram at present we are not prepared to take on Chinese, only if war is thrust on us we will take measures. It is like you are asked to appear in exam without preparation. Preparation and timing is always better. This is not the right time, any time after five years will be good time.

    Arihant class may play both the role for time being. Once we make bigger reactor we shall have dedicated nuclear attack sub of our own.

    We should start design / build hunter killer type submarines of around ~ 3000 Tons with sole purpose of submarine vs submarine scenarios...

    They have already tested the reactor long ago , this will only be a cock and bull show for the press!
    in fact most weapons systems are already tested platforms before being presented to the press so that failures and subsequent negative press can be minimized( we still have failures but very few relatively)
