    I extend an invite to you to please come down to India and learn your own language from us Indians. You have pathetic knowledge of your national language.
    I too have served in Navy and hold watchkeeping certificate. Towing exercises are done as a routine on warships. Don't teach me you old fart.

    Can a tug boat about 10K tons with Bollard pull of not more than 20k tons pull a warship of 65k tons alone? Where in that video did we see the warship coming alongside being pulled by that tug? I have seen many idiots like you on ships and you are a general commodity. Every shippy is big a bullshit as you are when it comes to knowledge and their existence as a shudra comes alive when arranged against an Aviator. We Aviators are superior to you shippy shit and you know that. I know that even in RN, You have the same problem of being treated like bird shit by Aviators.

    Shudra means man power component, also sometimes means "everything other than the three other varnas", it doesn't mean brainless, or that one is lacking in knowledge. It simply means, working in physical. Just because someone is working in physical doesn't mean, he is brainless too. Someone with brains can also be working in physical, when there is a need.

    Shudra also means a person who has no knowledge of truth as they did not study Vedas.

    That is western illiterate interpretation. Not native. Chatura Varna simply classifies the four components you need to do any positive action and its up-keep, that is knowledge (brahmin), security (kshtriyata), talent to identify opportunities and make use of it (vyashya) and manpower (shudra).

    I think India is the only country in the world with its own list of Navel accidents on Wikipedia

    List of Indian Navpal accidents

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    2000 - 2010[edit]

    • December 2005: INS Trishul (F43), a Talwar-class frigate, collided with a commercial vessel, Ambuja Laxmi, outside the Mumbai harbor, while returning from a training mission. These class of ships use stealth technologies and a special hull design to ensure a reduced radar cross section. Radar systems installed by the port authorities and those on board the Ambuja Laxmi were unable to detect INS Trishul and prevent the side on collision. No casualties were reported.[8][9]
    • April 2006: INS Prahar (K98), Veer class corvette, sank after colliding with the MV Rajiv Gandhi vessel about 20 nautical miles away from the Goa coast. No casualties were reported. The commanding officer of the ship, Lieutenant Commander Yogesh Tripathi was found guilty of negligence by an Indian Navy court-martial and dismissed from service.[10]
    • September 2006: INS Dunagiri (F36), Nilgiri class frigate, collided with a Shipping Corporation of India merchant vessel, the MV Kiti, off the coast of Mumbai. There were no casualties, but the Dunagiri suffered damage and required extensive repairs.[11][12]
    • January 2008: INS Sindhughosh (S55), a Kilo-class submarine, collided with a foreign merchant vessel MV Leeds Castle while trying to surface in waters north of Mumbai.[9] The submarine was taking part in fleet-level war games, when the accident occurred. The Navy termed it a minor incident with no casualties reported.
    • February 2008: Five crew were killed and three critically injured due to exposure to hydrogen sulfide aboard INS Jalashwa (L41), a landing platform dock. The ship was taking part in exercises in the Bay of Bengal.[13]
    • August 2009: A collision of the missile corvette INS Kuthar (P46) with destroyer INS Ranvir (D54) in the Bay of Bengal was traced to a rudder failure, compounded by a flawed maneuver.[1]

    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 as er m Dornier Do 228 aircraft belonging to the Indian Navy Aviation Squadron 310, on a routine training mission, lost radar recovtorpedoes fired by fleet ships during a routine exercise. The accident resulted in the tragic death of one sailor while four others were reported 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’s 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 failureissing however 23 other personnel were rescued by SAR teams deployed right after the incident.[34]

    Russia just successfully tested an anti-satellite missile - Business Insider

    Russia just successfully tested an anti-satellite missile

    • test of its anti-satellite missile. The Dong Neng-3 direct ascent missile was tested on Oct. 30 in western China.

      A Pentagon spokesman had no immediate comment on the Russian missile test.

      Air Force Space Command commander Gen. John Hyten warned this month that both Russia and China are developing space warfare capabilities that threaten critical US satellites.

      “They are developing capabilities that concern us,” Hyten said, according to a report in theColorado Springs Gazette published a day before the test.

      Little information is available on the secretive Russian program. However, as with China, the Russian direct ascent missile appears linked to its missile defense programs.

      [​IMG]REUTERS/ITAR-TASS/PRESIDENTIAL PRESS SERVICERussian President Putin watches the launch of a missile during naval exercises in Russia’s Arctic North on board the nuclear missile cruiser Pyotr Veliky (Peter the Great), Aug. 17, 2005

      Russian state-run press reports have identified the mobile transporter-launcher for what is described as “a new Russian long-range missile defense and space defense intercept complex.” The weapon is “being developed within the scope of the Nudol OKR [experimental development project],” Novosti reported in 2014.

      The new weapon is being developed by the Almaz-Antey Air Defense Concern.

      Hyten, the Space Command commander, said he does not want to see conflict extend to space but also noted “we have to be able to defend ourselves.”

      Hyten said several nations, including Russia, North Korea, China, and Iran, are developing anti-satellite capabilities.

      Analysts say the space threat to satellites highlights a strategic vulnerability. With as few as two dozen anti-satellite missiles, Russia or China could cripple US intelligence, navigation, and communications capabilities that are critical for both military operations and civilian infrastructure.

      Rep. Mike Pompeo (R., Kansas) said the Russian test is a concern.

      “As President Obama cuts our defense budget and seeks to ally with Putin, the Russians continue to develop their technological abilities to weaponize space and to take out our national technical means — kinetically and through cyber,” said Pompeo, a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

      “We can foolishly turn a blind eye to these developments, or acknowledge this threat and develop our own capabilities to ensure that our satellites — military and commercial — are not susceptible to attack or blackmail,” he told the Washington Free Beacon.

      Former Pentagon official Mark Schneider said the Russian test highlights the failure of the United States to prepare for space warfare.

      “There is an enormous asymmetry in play regarding space weapons,” said Schneider, of the National Institute for Public Policy.

      “For decades the Congress has prevented the US from putting weapons in space and even developing a ground-based ASAT capability,” Schneider said. “There is no such constraint upon the Russians and Russia violates arms control treaties when this is in their interest to do so and they find ample opportunity to do this.”

      A February 2015 unclassified Defense Intelligence Agency report to the Congress stated that “Chinese and Russian military leaders understand the unique information advantages afforded by space systems and are developing capabilities to deny U.S. use of space in the event of a conflict,” Schneider added.

      Pavel Podvig, director of the online Russian Nuclear Forces Project, said a graphic image depicting the Nudol was posted on a Russian website.

      [​IMG]LivejournalImage of the Nudol missile system posted on a Russian website.

      “The information is scarce, but as far as I can tell, Nudol is developed as a component of a missile defense system,” Podvig said.

      “It may be related to the program that would upgrade the Moscow missile defense. It might be part of the project known as Samolet-M.”

      The use of the Nudol to hit satellites is possible, according to Podvig, who noted the American use in 2008 of a modified Navy SM-3 anti-missile interceptor to shoot down a falling National Reconnaissance Satellite.

      However, Podvig says the Nudol system appears to use stationary radar that would give it a limited anti-satellite capability. The mobile image posted online would indicate the system is movable, but without mobile radar it would be limited to hitting satellites that pass over Moscow.

      Moscow recently announced plans to upgrade its Moscow missile defense system, which uses nuclear-tipped interceptors.

      Col. Andrei Cheburin, commander of Russia’s missile defense battalion in the Aerospace Forces, told the Russian radio on Saturday that missile defenses are being upgraded.

      “Very soon we will receive an upgraded missile defense system with new means of destruction, thus fulfilling the task of providing missile defense for Moscow in any environment,” he told Russian radio, the state-run Interfax news agency reported Monday.

      The Obama administration has been vocal in opposing China’s anti-satellite weapons development but has made no mention of the Russian program.

      A State Department spokeswoman had no immediate comment on the Nudol flight test.

      State Department officials in the past have said China’s development of space weapons is destabilizing.

      “The continued development and testing of destructive [anti-satellite] ASAT systems is both destabilizing and threatens the long-term security and sustainability of the outer space environment,” Frank Rose, assistant secretary of state for arms control, verification and compliance, said in February.

      China has conducted several tests of anti-satellite weapons, including a 2007 test that left tens of thousands of pieces of dangerous debris floating in space. The debris continues to threaten both manned and unmanned satellites.

      Meanwhile, a polar-orbiting National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration satellite, NOAA 16, broke up in space mysteriously last week, according to the Air Force’s Joint Space Operations Center.

      “The cause is still unknown at this point,” said John Leslie, a NOAA spokesman.

      Air Force Space Command spokesman Nick Mercurio said no satellites or other objects were detected near the NOAA 16 prior to the breakup on Nov. 25. The debris currently is not posing a risk to other satellites, he said.
