    India's next generation SSBN S-5 illustration released by (NPOL) DRDO

    India's next generation SSBN S-5 illustration and related sonar development activities released by DRDO’s Kochi-based Naval Physical & Oceanographic Laboratory (NPOL). This will be built after current three S-1, S-2 and S-3 submarine constructions are over.

    I think Prasun Sengupta got these from DEFEXPO 2012.

    Loll!! The arihant illustration looked nothing like the real thing. No reason to place any great faith in it.

    Three SSBN are Somewhat more than Enough,DRDO Must put more effort on SSGN/SSN's.We need More of Nuclear Attack Submarines

    Well it looks cool enough,
    I am glad to see a newer SSBN design.

    But i was hoping for a simultaneous development of SSNs for IN
    and if resources permit even a SSGN

    I think we should already be focusing on an SSN. It is way too important to be ignored. Though Arihant provides a Nuclear deterrence, we still need a credible naval attack platform for convention warfare.

    A 3000-4000 tonne SSN with 100 MW reactor will be good for enough in this current scenario.
