    I would suggest worry about just one of your bases first, never mind the whole navy.

    More than 450 nuclear safety incidents reported at Britain's Royal Navy submarine base - Mirror Online
    8 in 6 months is nothing compared to 451 in 72 months, that's 37 every 6 months.

    The 'glass people houses stone' phrase comes to mind.

    What was that again @jonas? Correct me if I'm wrong. Is that "People with glasses shouldn't clobber their heads on stone houses"? Or is it "People who are stoned should build glass houses"? Oh, wait, I'm sure it is "People who are stoned get glassed".

    2010 - present[edit]
    • In 2010, three crew men on destroyer INS Mumbai (D62) were instantly killed when an AK-630 Close-in weapon system went off as safety drills were not followed.[1]
    • January 2011: INS Vindhyagiri (F42), a Nilgiri-class frigate, capsized after a collision with a Cyprus-flagged merchant vessel MV Nordlake near the Sunk Rock light house, following which a major fire broke out in the ship's engine and boiler room. Everyone on board was evacuated as soon as the fire broke out and hence there were no casualties.[14] INS Vindhyagiri was later decommissioned.[15]
    • August 2013: Blasts ripped through the torpedo compartment of the INS Sindhurakshak (S63) while it was berthed at the naval dockyard off the Mumbai coast. Fifteen Sailors and three officers were killed.[16] Other sources state that a small explosion occurred around midnight which then triggered the two larger explosions.[17] The disaster was thought to be the Indian navy's worst since the sinking of the frigate INS Khukri by a Pakistani submarine during the 1971 war.[18]
    • December 2013: INS Konkan (M72), a Pondicherry-class minesweeper under the Eastern Naval Command, caught fire at the naval dockyard at Visakhapatnam while undergoing repairs. The fire engulfed much of the ship's interior before it was put off. No casualties were reported.[19]
    • December 2013: In the second incident in the same month, INS Talwar (F40), the lead ship of the Talwar class frigate of the Indian Navy, collided with a fishing trawler injuring four of the 27 people on board the trawler and sinking it. The fishing trawler was operating without lights.[20] The captain of the ship was subsequently stripped of command.[21]
    • December 2013: In the third incident in the same month, INS Tarkash (F50), again a Talwar class frigate, suffered damage to its hull when it hit the jetty while docking at the Mumbai naval base. The navy ordered a board of inquiry.[22]
    • January 2014: INS Betwa (F39), an indigenously built Brahmaputra class guided missile frigate, ran aground and collided with an unidentified object while approaching the Mumbai naval base. The sonar system of the frigate was cracked, leading to faulty readings and an ingress of saltwater into sensitive equipment.[23]
    • January 2014: In the second incident in the same month, INS Vipul (K46), a veer class corvette of the elite 22nd Killer Missile Vessel Squadron, was detected with a hole in its pillar compartment which forced the ship back into the harbour while it was on an operational deployment.[24]
    • February 2014: On 3 February, INS Airavat (L24), a Shardul class amphibious warfare vessel, ran aground while returning to its home base at Visakhapatnam, causing slight damage to its propellers. Following the incident, its commanding officer, Captain JPS Virk, was relieved of command pending the findings of a Board of Inquiry.[25]
    • February 2014: On 26 February, INS Sindhuratna (S59), a Kilo-class submarine, had a fire detected on board when trials were being conducted which resulted in smoke leading to suffocation and death of two officers. Seven sailors were reported injured and were airlifted to the naval base hospital in Mumbai.[26] According to the naval board of inquiry, the fire was caused due to problems in the cables of the vessel.[27] This particular incident led to the resignation of Chief of Naval Staff (CNS) Admiral D K Joshi on 26 February 2014, who owned moral responsibility for the incidents in the past few months.[28]
    • March 2014: INS Kolkata, had a malfunction on board which led to a toxic gas leak killing Commander Kuntal Wadhwa instantly.[29] It seems that the ship suffered malfunction in its carbon dioxide unit while undergoing machinery trials, leading to gas leakage.[30] Since the ship was not commissioned at the time of the incident, the enquiry into the mishap will be done by Mazagon Dock Limited, where the ship was constructed.

    • May 2014: INS Ganga (F22) suffered a minor explosion in the boiler room while undergoing a refit at the Mumbai dockyard. Four people suffered minor injuries. There was no fire and no equipment was damaged.[31][32][33]
    • November 2014: A Torpedo Recovery Vessel of the Astravahini class (A-73) sank 30 NM off the Vizag coast during a routine mission to recover torpedoes fired by fleet ships during a routine exercise. The accident resulted in the tragic death of one sailor while four others were reported as missing however 23 other personnel were rescued by SAR teams deployed right after the incident.[34]
    • March 2015: A Dornier Do 228 aircraft belonging to the Indian Navy Aviation Squadron 310, on a routine training mission, lost radar contact and ditched at sea about 20 nautical miles South West of Goa on the night of 24 March 15. The aircrew on board the aircraft comprised three officers (two Pilots and one woman Observer). The lone Survivor, Commander Nikhil Kuldip Joshi, was picked up by a passing fishing boat. The bodies of the other two officers Lieutenant Abhinav Nagori and Lieutenant Kiran Shekhawat have been recovered. Media reports suggest that the woman observer could be the first woman in India‚Äôs military to die in active service. Meanwhile, a Board of Inquiry has been ordered to establish the cause of the accident.[35][36]
    • November 2015: INS Kochi (D64), a Kolkata-class destroyer, conducted BrahMos missile test firings whilst the airspace remained open to traffic, due to a communication failure.[37]

    Whether my design is built or not, it will not be a disaster called Typhoon created by four nations who call themselves to be the god's own balls and led by a third rate country which still has pretentions of being a superpower while existing as a poodle of a nation which supports terror in the world.

    A nice string of media stories, with not one fact. Though if it makes you feel better in your nationalistic wonderland, so be it. Now if you could tell me how many lives have been lost, or how many personel have been injured in these incidents, compared with the Indian Navy, then I would listen.

    In the UK the most dangerous occupation is deep sea fishing, in India it appears to be the Navy .:evilgrin:

    You obviously have no idea at all in regards to the mirror, if you did you wouldn't have posted this article.

    Do you realise that in the UK we have what is called the 'Health and Safety executive' this is a department that looks into all aspects of safety in the workplace. Things like someone not drying the floor properly after washing it, is in their mind a hazard. Not wearing safety boots or hard hats. Rubbish not put into bins etc. Do you get the drift.

    So you see that if these principles which are standar practice in the UK workplace, were to be enforced in your workplace environment, the vast majority of your armed forces and industry would be shut down. :fie:

    The flying sausage is a figment of your vivid imagination, at least the disaster called Typhoon does it's job without falling out of the skies, in the process killing it's occupants which is a regular occurence in the IAF.

    Your sausage won't do that of course, as it is incable of flying :cheesy:

    It is better to sit idle and do nothing rather than pretend to be doing something and end up creating disasters for oneself.
