From the article:

Nonetheless, Adml Verma’s statement is likely to provoke
a strong reaction from Beijing, which warned India
against ‘arrogance’ earlier this year following its
successful launch of the Agni IV intercontinental
ballistic missile, a land-based weapon which can strike
any city in China.

Mohan Guruswamy, from the Centre for Policy Alternatives
in New Delhi, said the imminent launch of the new
submarine “changed the equation [between India and China]
considerably.”

He pointed out that India ws also planning to launch six
nuclear-powered attack submarines, adding that within
seven years the country should have a varied fleet which
would, in theory, be able to block Chinese access to the
Indian Ocean via the Strait of Malacca. “They could be
sitting off Karachi – or China. It’s an investment for
the future,” said Mr Guruswamy.

Theres several BILLION Chinese just a hop skip and a jump across the border.. Maybe the Indians can nuke themselves when they attack India.. OR some can escape in the submarines..

Maybe they should outsource design/construction to the USA.

In January 1988 India leased a Charlie I class submarine from the USSR for three years. The lease expired in January 1991 and the boat was returned to to the USSR. Arihant is based on the Soviet/Russian Charlie and Akula classes.

Maybe they can hook this sub into their 3rd world power grid and perform double duty. ;-}

Why so many negative comments? A strong India helps counter-balance China, and that’s good for everyone, including China.

If that picture shows their submarine they need to go back to the drawing board... (It’s not like someone would illustrate an article about a submarine with a pic of a missile, right?)
