The scorch marks from the fire are visible on the raised persicope/antennae and on the side of the dock. It's a wonder that they pulled the other sub away in time.
Can Russians help to replace such a powerful submarine asap.?
Why is the man next to Anthony smiling… What does he think this is.. some udghatan ceremony.Many sailors lost their lives in this accident. These people have no sensitivities. They should be airdropped across the Chinese border.
Well, this reminds us the importance of indigenous weapon systems. And also throws the light on the maintenance procedures that we follow to keep them operational. An eye opener for our military class. Other than that, my heard goes with the brave solders who fought to control the situation to last breath.
As Raghav has pointed out the whole system of accident investigation in sphere in India whether it is Aircraft,ship or even humans is so unprofessional like. Is this naval dockyard protected from under sea frog men? When a set of 10 terrorists from Karachi could come and land and creat mayhem why not a set of frogmen from Pakistani navy come and set a magnetic mine in a professional way and create this fire.But then our accident investigation is so shoddy.
Russian tarpedos use hydrogen peroxide as oxidizer and it is always a hazard in high tempretures and thus not used in any other country. Kursk sank because of the same and all i hope that non hydrogen peroxide using tarpedos are used.
Very sad day for India. The PM says he s saddened by the loss of Sidhu. Does that mean he is not saddened by the loss of the valiant lives. These men are irreplaceable. Further Indian should completely change its doctrine of dependency on Russia for defense equipment. Russian Subs do lack safety features. Only alternates – Buy from west or build your own subs.
Where are the rescue personnel? Pathetic.
Very sad indeed. Time to introspect on maintaining equipment beyond its life.
I am deeply saddened by this. In the span of 7 days the navy made 3 big headlines:1. INS Arihant reactor went critical2. INS Vikrant: Floated3. INS Sindhurakshak mishaps
It's a huge loss and affects all serving in the Navy.
