    So is the Americans in the cold war era, underestimating Russian subs will be the biggest mistake.

    I think we should go with U-212 which is half the cost & much active in other navies...

    U-212 is the most stealthy submarine today, has AIP already built in. I don't see any new features on the submarines IN is looking for.

    Maybe IN is paying more for increased sonar stealthiness.

    The Lada class is definitely faster that the U212 and stealthier.

    The Kilo class is said to be one of the most silent subs in the world. Even China, which people assume is self-sufficient in sub building capabilities ordered 8 more of these subs in the early 2000s.

    I think Amur has a great chance but it's not yet ready and only IN should decide what it want and other agencies must be kept out,

    Personally i think Amur will be good for us as INDIA and RUSSIA has many defense related things in common than any other, and BRAHMOS in Amur is great by the time we get our hands in this it will be BRAHMOS II with mach 6 nothing will stop us.

    The Integration of BrahMos was a Clause in RFI ,
    All The 4 contender have Agreed That BrahMos will be Integrated if Their Sub Is selected
