    Bulls eye @Ankit Kumar 001

    Scorpene more orders and second hand subs scoping...

    Plan B is simple but good..

    Once we use the MDL new line , we should get 3 subs parallel in 5-6 years flat.

    I still feel the mention of "Plan B " and a "Government to Government " deal together , refers to a JV for new Kilos.

    Follow on Scorpenes is clearly the most optimal solution.


    @PARIKRAMA wtf is the GoI/MoD doing by holding back the SP chapter to the DPP for so long?? So many critical deals are on hold because of this.

    More scorpenes were confirmed when the second line at MDL was inaugurated , and 2 Scorpene was launched.

    The follow on Scorpenes will have one addition thing , no no , not the AIP.....
    It's a cruise missile ...... from France ...... a long range one....... land attack....... we are buying it for Rafales too.........:angel:

    Well I don't see any reaosn why the P-75I farce needs to continue and can't be entirely replaced by follow on Scorpenes, an addtional 9-12 Scorpenes should be ordered at least.

    MdCN (SCALP)? Would be a pretty awesome addition to the IN's arsenal (has >1000km range), surely this can be added to all IN Scorpenes also, not just the follow-on units?

    But no AIP? That's surprising and disappointing, DCNS offered it to the IN.

    The investigation report here conducted by Navy, MDL and DCNS India has been submitted to MoD , and till now hints are that everything is fine. A final clearance from Prime Minister is awaited.

    MoD and Navy still have some hope on DRDO AIP. A progress report will be prepared in the last quarter of this financial year. If the progress is not satisfactory , then DRDO will send out EOI for Joint Development.

    DRDO works hard to disappoint, mind you. Hopes are always there. But they are very hard workers indeed. :)

    The reason for the hope , as I guess is that Navy wants either a Sterling Cycle , or a Fuel Cell based one. Not MESMA concept.

    PS:- This is only my guess !
