About Navantia’s submarines:

Navantia is presenting its S80 Plus Class submarine concept to respond to the Indian P75I programme initiated by the Indian MoD (Defense Ministry) for the procurement of six conventional AIP (Air-independent propulsion) submarines. On January 2020, the Livefist Defence website reported that the Indian MoD has nominated two Indian shipyards and five foreign submarine manufacturers for Project 75-India (P75I) U-Boat Building Scheme, which envisages the development of six next-generation attack submarines in India at such a price of more than $6.3 billion.

Guided Pinaka close to its developed stage

From the declaration of its 6 regiments in August to the effective Improved Pinaka Mk-1 test this week, plenty has changed in the long-running production and enhancement of the Pinaka rocket projects. The production of the Guided variant of Pinaka, nearly about double initial distance, has been approaching completion, said that a representative of the Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO).

History of Pinaka:

In standard combat room, long-range artillery systems such as Pinaka are used to strike enemy objectives prior to close-quarter fighting involving small-range artillery, armoured units and infantry.

In the late 1980s, the DRDO began designing Pinaka as an answer to Russian-made multi-barrel rocket launch structures called ‘Grad’ and ‘Smerch,’ that are now in use. After effective Pinaka Mark-1 experiments throughout the late 1990s, it was effectively used throughout the Kargil War of 1999. During the next several years, several regiments of the framework have arisen along India’s border regions with China as well as Pakistan.



Indian Military- A World Perspective

Just like India-U.S. Military collaboration deepens, there is increasing curiosity in the worldview of Indian armed forces officers among policymakers and observers in the United States and allied countries: how they see India’s geopolitical problems and how they want to counter them in a military manner. Colonel David O. Smith (retired), a distinguished fellow of the Stimson Center South Asia initiative and a senior U.S. Officer of the Defense Intelligence Department, has been a long-standing observer of South Asian security issues.

Armed Forces: Power and vulnerability

The human resource of the Indian Army is superb — well-disciplined, well-trained, and ready to carry out any assigned task — as strong as any armies in the world. Likewise, its officer corps is competent, committed to serving the country, and senior management is equivalent to any armies in the world.

The critiques ideally, can be understood for what they are supposed to be — as a fair, substantive critique that is meant to increase substantive progress in an organisation.

Russia’s tech offer to India

Russia’s highest military export authority Rosoboronexport has expressed its commitment to provide India with technologies for the manufacture of defence equipment. Earlier this month, the body celebrated its 20th anniversary and, in answer to WION’s question, said, “Historically, from the very beginning …… not only provided combat equipment but also provided assistance in the organisation of its production, the construction of repair and maintenance facilities.”


The company has collaborated with the Indian authorities on the approved development of Su-30MKI multi-role fighter jets in India, the modification and transition of the Vikramaditya aircraft carrier to the Indian Navy. India and Russia have a close security alliance, a cornerstone of the much-famous friendship.



Port Museum to be made out of Indian Navy Craft

The Indian Navy has assigned a craft to the Alappuzha Port Museum that is now being put up in favour of the Heritage Programme, T.M. Thomas Isaac who is the Finance Minister said.

Vice Admiral who is G. Ashok Kumar, and also Vice Chief of the Naval Staff, told that the Indian Naval Fast Attack Craft T 81 had been allocated to the Alappuzha Port Museum. It’s a ship in Mumbai. It would soon be turned over to Southern Naval Command. Through Kochi, we’re going to have to take it to Alappuzha and mount it on the shoreline at the front of the museum.

About the ship:

The Navy has given its full assistance, Dr Isaac said in a social media post. The T 81 Fast Attack Craft was appointed to the Indian Navy in June 1999. The ship seems to have a displacement of 60 tonnes, a length of 25 metres and a beam of five metres and a speed of more than 40 knots. It is capable of being deployed at sea in the fastest available time and can conduct a wide range of tasks, including observation, reconnaissance, organised search and rescue operations and the high-speed interception of small boats.
