At 6,000-tons, this sub will be pretty small when compared to US Ohio-class boomers, ...
True, but recall that the USS Nautilus (SSN-571) had a displacement around 3500 tons.

(The Lord uses the good ones; the bad ones use the Lord.)
The French navy’s Rubis class SSNs are even smaller at around 2,500 tonnes submerged displacement.
But then these were not SSBNs(if this Indian sub actually turns out to be one).
