    NDTV Exclusive: This is INS Arihant, First Made-in-India Nuclear Submarine

    [​IMG]India presently operates another nuclear submarine, the INS Chakra, a nuclear attack submarine of the Akula-2 class from Russia. The Chakra does not carry nuclear weapons but would likely be deployed with the Arihant during its pre-commissioning trials to protect this key nuclear asset.

    Like other key strategic weapons systems, the INS Arihant is being developed under the aegis of the Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO), which is accountable to the Defence Ministry. Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited the agency in Delhi today and said, "At least five DRDO labs should be identified exclusively for innovation with young scientists up to the age of 35 years. They should be managed by leaders also in the same age group".

    "DRDO is becoming hollow at the bottom," says Dr Avinash Chander, the agency's chief. He said he can induct only about 70 fresh scientists every year instead of the nearly 300 recruits it used to add annually till recently.

    Nope, that's what submarines look like after 3-4 years of service.

    The sea water tends to have that corrosive effect on the hull.

    Submarine corrosion caused by cost-cutting, says leaked MoD memo | UK news | The Guardian

    This is a concern for all sub operating navies. Astute class is relatively new, can be compared to Arihant in it's operational time frame/period.
