India may lease second nuclear submarine from Russia

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.
