India to commission its first new conventional submarine after 17 years
NEW DELHI: "Sea denial" is the name of the game for conventional diesel-ric submarines. Their primary role is to interdict an enemy's trade and energy routes, block its ports, sink its warships, and sometimes attack land targets with long-range cruise missiles.
So, when PM Narendra Modi commissions India's first new diesel-ric submarine in over 17 years in Mumbai on Thursday, it will be a red-letter day for the beleaguered Navy. The force, after all, is grappling with just 13 ageing conventional submarines, only half of them operational at any given time.

Of these 17 years, Congress ruled 10. Out of this 10 years, Pope Anthony was Defence Minister for 7 years.

Thanks to late UPA gt., Indian Navy is in a mess today........ All projects waiting in pipeline and fleets all aged. Its atleast a decade behind. Hopefully, NDA can give the confidence and strength in the fleet it had been longing for........
