OSINT Report : Indian Navy to Finally Field Submarine Rescue System in 2018

With 13 conventional and two nuclear powered submarines, the Indian Navy required a reliable submarine rescue vehicle. The two nuclear powered subs are presently in varied state of repairs but the damages were while they were in harbour and thus not a major cause of concern from the point of rescue. The INS Sindhurakshak, a Kilo Class submarine suffered a major fire and explosion on 14 August 2013 and sank at Mumbai's naval dockyard with the death of 18 crew members.
