Will PNS Ghazi soon turn out to be a tourist attraction in Vizag?



In what is coming as a major revelation, it has been informed that the remains of PNS Ghazi, the first fast-attack submarine of Pakistan Navy, discovered in the waters of Visakhapatnam, might soon be turned into a tourist attraction in the city. The submarine, which was Pakistan’s flagship underwater vessel, took part in several wars including the Indo-Pak war in 1971, during which the submarine sank in the waters near the Visakhapatnam harbour.

Historians claim the sinking of Ghazi to be a notable event and as one of the biggest mysteries of the 1971 war with Indian and Pakistan sources having different views behind the reason for its sinking.

Balram Naidu, director of Livein Adventures, while speaking to Yo! Vizag said, “PNS Ghazi has been located near the entrance of the city’s port, at a depth of 28m from the sea surface. While the divers of Indian Navy have been conducting regular dives here, further details are yet to be studied. We need to discuss with the concerned authorities and decide how to take this further and help Vizag gain another feather in its cap of the tourism industry.”

What does PNS Ghazi hold for Vizag?
With the advent of water sports and adventure activities at the city’s bay, Vizag has certainly grown to be renowned as a premier destinations for water sports enthusiasts. Also, the recently discovered shipwrecks, along with the exhilarating scuba diving activities, have given the city’s tourism sector an all-new boost. PNS Ghazi seems to be poised to bolster this further as Vizag gears up for yet another tourist attraction.

If we can salvage it, it'll be really fun parading it around as a war trophy.
Pakis will surely be pissed.:megusta:

What machine will they use to get a submarine out of the ocean?

Anyways, in the opening ceremony, they should invite the ambassadors of Pakistan and Bangladesh (and maybe China as well? LoL)

There is no plan to pull it out,instead convert it into a diving destination... it lies at a comfortable depth for advanced open water divers to explore

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Azorian

Project Azorian (erroneously called "Jennifer" by the press after its Top Secret Security Compartment)[2] was a U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) project to recover the sunken Soviet submarine K-129 from the Pacific Ocean floor in 1974, using the purpose-built ship Hughes Glomar Explorer.[3] The 1968 sinking of K-129 occurred approximately 1,560 nautical miles (2,890 km) northwest of Hawaii.[4] Project Azorian was one of the most complex, expensive, and secretive intelligence operations of the Cold War at a cost of about $800 million ($4 billion in 2017 dollars).
