Our naming tradition is a hybrid of Royal Navy and US Navy in that we name all our warships after Mythological figures/creatures or Sea creatures and figures. This convention might never change as it's neutral politically for everyone and nobody will be lobbying about names at the MoD or in the Parliament.Guys, just a small thought . Wouldn't it be great to name these P-75A subs after our great kings, like Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, Raja Raja Chola, Sri Krishna Devaraya, Prithvi raj chauhan etc
It's p 75 alpha ,the nuclear one , that's p75 i you are talking about ,the deisel oneWe have been discussing this for many years. As it always happens, this project is in Limbo for years and now something seems to be happening. Most of the delay in our acquisition of product or development of product is because of poor decision making and not because of the development time and acquisition time. Now we can hope that all this delay is utilised to configure the submarine in most sophisticated way. We can hope that all the selection procedure and other things will happen in time bound manner and we shall be able to acquire the submarines along with the necessary technology to produce time in India. We can order few more scorpene if acquisitin delays. I hope that French submarine is selected so that we can utilize our experience to make it faster.
Only the US has the capability to churn out Virginia class SSN every 3-4 years.That's for furst ship if the design work will start today ,or next year .
That's a standard timeline ,check for any other barracuda yasen ,vicotria any other
Actually current convention is alright. If else you would have an ego war if different regions will play ego based on the name of the warships given to which class.Guys, just a small thought . Wouldn't it be great to name these P-75A subs after our great kings, like Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, Raja Raja Chola, Sri Krishna Devaraya, Prithvi raj chauhan etc
