    No. Only 1.

    We will either extend the Nerpa lease or return the sub after the 10 years are up. And we will go for a new Akula class.

    The article is referring to the first INS Chakra that we leased back in 1988.

    Yes i see it now, damn the article confused me with the Chakra III

    BUT, not saying it is confirmed , Livefist fellows say that 2 subs will be leased and then our friend Prasun says that the lease of the Nerpa is just to cover the actual buyout of the Sub
