Dude, higher diving endurance and surface range doesn't make it better ! Read the comparisons by Atul on previous pages, you will get the true picture. Range is of no use to Pakistani Navy, your main adversary is hardly 800 kms away from your main base. And other than that PN doesn't have the capability or the need to venture far out from its territorial waters. Its main purpose is defense from an IN onslaught on Karachi and other coastal areas of concern.we payed close to 600million each for these?Agnosta has higher diving endurance and surfaced range.No fair.
Any Submarine is only as good as it's crew,only in the extremely rare case of both having the same expertise does technology have a deciding factor which is however not to say that a 25 yr old foxtrot could take on a agosta and win (though it is not theoretically impossible as well.)so scorpene or agosta is the best?
