India may lease second nuclear submarine from Russia

Russia is ready to cooperate with India also in matters related to the building of frigates of Project 11356, as well as the construction of submarines at Indian enterprises

Submarine of Project 971


QUITOL /India/, March 29. /TASS/. There are prospects for the transfer to India on lease of the second Russian nuclear-powered submarine, deputy head of the Russian Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC) Vladimir Drozhzhov told journalists on Tuesday.

“I’d rather not discuss this issue now, it’s premature, but the prospects exist,” he said at the Defexpo India 2016 exhibition, answering a corresponding question.

Drozhzhov added that Russia is ready to cooperate with India also in matters related to the building of frigates of Project 11356, as well as the construction of submarines at Indian enterprises.

India had leased Russia’s nuclear-powered submarine of Project 971 in 2012. In addition, the Indian Navy has six Talwar class frigates built in Russia.

    Not to worry, Russian technicians have a substantial number of back-doors in the electronics that can be entered anytime, and all launch doors have been secretly “wired up”. This of course was done to all Dolphin class diesel subs the Germans sold to the Israelis. Not only does this provide a certain element of interception ability by also high tech monitoring from various modalities. By the way, most of the sophisticated weapon system such as F-16s and other systems sold to Saudis, Israel and other nations have back doors and quite sophisticated interception means. This includes shoulder fired missiles which have biodegradable timed circuits which limit years of usability and other means to intercept activated remotely by satellite, aircraft or scalar signal. These military weapons system buyers have no awareness of this and wouldn’t believe it even if told by investigative journalists. The administration and mainstream Pentagon does not know about or control these secret capabilities but only a deep black element in the Secret Shadow Government which is already working cooperatively with a similar element in Russia to prevent a nuclear WW3 and any more major wars and are both working secretly to create peace and trade with more jobs for everyone in America and Russia. There is significant muscle behind both of these secret elements in Russia and America.

    The Project 11356 frigates are the Russians follow on to their Talwar class so it would make good sense for the Indians to follow in the same path.

    To me the interesting opportunity here, given that the Russians can’t get the Ukrainian diesels intended for these ships due to the Crimea/Donbas situation, is for Russia to export these them engine-less to India and for India to buy the engines direct from Ukraine and fit them themselves. The Talwar ships have Ukrainian engines.

    Pretty much a win-win-win situation.

      Вы абсолютно правы,НПО “Сатурн” должно к 2018 году создать ГТУ для замены украинской,но для этого надо было полностью переделать проект 11356,поэтому принято решение сосредоточиться на строительстве кораблей проекта 22350.А на данном этапе пополнить ЧФ МРК проекта “Буян-М”.
