Russia proposes joint development of submarines with India

News:Russia has offered India for joint design and development of advanced conventional diesel-electric submarines under Project 75I.


Project 75I

  • The Project 75I-class submarine is a follow-on of the Project 75 Kalvari-class submarines for the Indian Navy.
  • Under this project,six new-generation conventional diesel-electric submarines will be constructed. 
  • They will have advanced Air-independent propulsion(AIP) systems to enable them to stay submerged for longer duration and substantially increase their operational range. 
  • They will also have a vertical launch system (VLS) to enable them to carry multiple Brahmos supersonic cruise missiles, making them capable of anti-surface and anti-ship warfare missions. 
  • Further,they will also feature advanced stealth capabilities such as a greater ability to suppress noise and acoustic signatures.
