NEW DELHI: India has received a joint submarine design and construction proposal from Russia to build on the technology transfer acquired while building the nuclear fleet, and promises to drastically reduce the cost of Navy’s next-generation vessel plan.

The proposal, believed to have been discussed at the top level during the Sochi summit in May, offers an alternative to an upcoming $10 b P 75I tender for six new diesel electric submarines that the Navy requires. These are to be fitted with an Air Independent Propulsion (AIP) system that significantly increases their ability to stay underwater.

“The Russian side has offered a transfer of all intellectual property for the design and prototype construction. This will mean that there are also no limits to the number of submarines that can be built under the project...,” officials familiar with the details told ET.

To be fair. I feel like Indo-russian joint Ventures which involve designing of different Weopons like Missiles ,Ships , Planes(sure the FGFA didn't go as planned) , torpedoes, Engines, etc and many more has lot of potential. We should Co-operate with Russia and both Countries can be Benefited from the Overall package. To be honest, Deals for Planes like Rafale should be given to France, and deals like Rifles, Submarines etc should be Given to Russia.
