Navy submarine INS Sindhurakshak catches fire at naval dockyard in Mumbai - The Times of India
May be some torpedo gone wrong while loading.
Two Submarines damaged, Sindhu Rakshak & Sindu Rattna.
Sindhu rakshak was recently upgraded,came back from Russia.
any fault in up-gradation??
we have have submarines and even that not maintained properly.
Maybe RAW is testing out its TTPs for sabotaging the Chinese Navy when (not if) PLAN subs start basing out of Trincomalee.
Chinese Subs are afraid to go out of their ports they are too noisy and easily detectable... they prefer to stay 50 Kms within their shoreline...
It can be a torpedo blast... lets wait for the Navy assessment...
If so, how do you explain INS claims that it has detected Chinese submarines in the IOR using sonar arrays based on the Andaman Islands?
As I said Chinese make worst Subs and are too noisy... when ever they try to venture gets detected...
We see once in a while Chineese Subs going out on international waters for some trainings or excercise... but prefer to stay on shore...
Stick to the thread title or get reported...
Alright, I'll stick to the thread title.
A brief history of the INS Sindhurakshak:
Another relevant fact:
Taken in total, the potential losses from this accident are 280-330mm, not including any incidental equipment or compensation offered for the deaths of the men. Yet another blow for the meager INS budget.
looks like second explosion is huge must be torpedo got ignited. Damage looks to be extensive based on size of explosion.
Stay off this thread you ----ing Chinese troll. I guess you rejoice when sailors lose their lives in your country too. Can some admin put these trolls away please.
I'm not rejoicing. I feel bad for the families of these brave men. I wonder what the INS will offer them as compensation.
@Ray @Singh @Kunal Biswas, please look into the trolling by Chineese parasites, they are into spoiling most the the treads in the forum nowdays...
Sad incident! I hope all the jawans come out safely.
Is there any hope for the 18 missing soldiers? Any communication established?
Dear t_co, from your post, I remember 2 things. When bad news strikes or bad things happen, people fell bad and let down. Its ok. More importantly, people like us Indians should move on and get back to shape quickly. Here's what we need to do:
> Similar incident with 2 x IL-38 crash had taken place, replaced by 2 second hand planes from Russia. Same way, we should lease / buy 2nd Hand Kilos from Russia for attrition replacements, and also to look into depleting sub numbers in the short term. The modernization programme can continue without any stoppages, please, with help from Russian shipyard, only because their delivery is better than ours at the moment. Indian shipyards also must be involved, so we gain tech know-how. Balance is required.
> INS Sindughosh is at bottom of dock with 18 sailors trapped inside. This is a scenario we will encounter often. Preparation in terms of equipment and personnel can certainly be improved. I would have been happy to hear news like, "trapped sailors rescued quickly by Naval Divers." What must be done to make sure this type of scenario can be achieved ? This should ideally be done by Indian Navy personnel, who can do it, already having many achievements to their credit.
> Submarine handling procedures for loading / unloading armaments, availability of safety equipment nearby, etc. is very basic in these situations, any organization undergoing even commonly available ISO certification must have clear procedures / fire escape plan / equipment / etc. Navy to please re-look as to causes which created this situation, and potential effects of some of the actions on the ground. It is serious, Submarine lost when fleet is already depleted.
> Sabotage of submarines is cheapest way for an enemy to guarantee victory without fighting. A successful sabotage is the result of many factors, which have to be looked into, deeply.
t_co, you have brought clarity to my thinking, for which I have to thank you. I am indeed grateful.
