    The P17 actually has 2 triple torpedo launchers.

    No internal pics of that, no mention anywhere of torpedo fired by shivalik class or a video of weapon firing. Even the chart labelling components you posted says torpedo tubes NOT installed.

    The torpedo tubes on kolkatta, talwar even kamorta class have been spotted. No mention of them on Shivalik class anywhere. Very strange.

    A modern towed array sonar , its quite useless if the P17 cannot fire torpedoes...

    Have the shivaliks received ACTAS?

    Which heavy torpedo does Shivalik use?

    Interestingly even the news about Varunastra does not mention Shivalik anywhere.

    All I am saying is there is photos or confirmed news of which torpedoes are fitted on Shivalik. Some source should be found to confirm this.
