    Lease a base in Indian west coast for berthing rights for ACC and SSN from USA. Try it closer to Gujarat..

    That will be enough..

    In one shot you say that it's our mutual LSA agreement and otoh always the patrol path checks the CPEC, warships and SSN..

    And we also point to USA, look how we actively supported you so support us in geo political issues against China

    We need to get one thing clear. India of today and future is simply too big to get much support from others. The recent discord in India - Russia relations is also due to this , had India been a bit smaller , with a bit less economic and military might , we would have been doing much more good friends and brothers in Arms stuff with Russia.

    The correct reply would be , get more Akulas , and send one of them to berth in Taiwan!

    Regular deployment to Vietnam would also be good , but nothing would hurt more than a SSN from India berthing in Taiwan.

    Members here should treat Pakistan on the same level as China when it comes to military technology....

    That's because the Chinese will Grant them every piece of advance military technology they have...No matter if Pakistan can pay for it or not.... Pakistans Security is China's Responsibility...

    For the Pakistanis, Chinese Technology is as good as indigenous....They are unlikely to face any opposition from the Chinese....
    (Re-sell and stuff won't obviously be allowed....)

    To be Frank here....
    I wouldn't be surprised if the Chinese gift them SLBM's...SSN's.....SSBN's..
    Stealth Frigates... Fighters...Etc.....



    PS : If you expect China to respect Intl. Treaties... Well... :lol:



    PPS : We can never be at war with Pakistan alone... China will always come to it's aid...... ALWAYS....

    A review is to happen this year.

    If everything is ok, a go ahead will be given for a dedicated fabrication facility at SBC. This would take around 18-30 months. Mean while work will progress on design , if I assume that work on its power plant its already on , 2024 is the schedule when the first vessel should be launched.

    Yup... Then we will HAVE to buy F-16's...F-18's...And Rescue their Arms Manufacturers in though times....

    We will also lose our ability to oppose them at forums Like the WTO...Where we are often at opposite sides...

    Example....
    We sell cheap medicines...For the greater good of our people...We oppose the American Pharmacy Companies....After this....Forget that...


    Americans don't hand out their protection for free....Lets face it....We will need them more than they will need us...

    Why lease and become subservient to USA? Just convey to them by informal means that we are open to hosting their assets for long term under LSA on our bases. They anyway want berthing in Port blair.

    It also means that if relations with USA go south after some years, we would not have to tolerate their Navy on our bases.

    Maybe they are the best [Though what about Seawolf class, or Even Borei class (I know it is SSBN, but it still has many techs which are better than Akula)] , but with Russia in Chinese camp, how trustworthy are they?

    Russia in China camp or no China camp.

    If its money and a well deal done , they are reliable. Be sure about it.

    Developing our own would happen. But it would take time.

    Between the first vessels gets commissioned , there is a timeframe of ~12 years.

    And nothing fills the gap right now other than more and more Akulas.
