Submarine Lost

In one of the worst disasters to have struck the Indian Navy, a series of explosions rocked the Russian-made Kilo class submarine, “INS Sindurakshak”, at the naval dockyard in Colaba early Wednesday, sinking it partially in the shallow sea, in which 18 personnel are feared killed.

According to one report I read, this particular ship had just been returned to the Indian Navy by Russia after a rebuild required due to a similar explosion in the forward torpedo room some while ago. Evidently, the Indian Navy has some difficulty handling torpedoes, eh?

Re: Submarine Lost

I believe the first explosion was caused by a leaking pipe in a battery exhausting system, not torpedo related.

The Ruskies probably sold them the out dated torp batteries they removed from service after the Kursk sinking. I think that was a battery issue but may be confusing it with the Scorpion.

Re: Submarine Lost

"Submarine Lost" sounds a little more dramatic than "ship in a yard catches fire, people die, and boat is scrapped."

Thanks. I thought so.

Four severely disfigured bodies have been recovered. They are not identifiable, due to severe burns.
