India, for long have neglected the coastline as well as the maritime security. The only reason British could rule the world then and America rules now is a strong unchallenged Navy.

Barracuda the French sub has new disel engine instead of nuclear reactor. It will be perfect for India for gaining more experience in nuclear sub

Seriously Japan will compete in this race.
Scorpene and S-80 are out of race, since S-80 is facing design problem and 30 year program emphasized TOT from 2 different contractors (one should be of western and another russian design) to help IN design its own submarine.

Japan US-2 sale is not going forward due to TOT, so how can we expect it to allow TOT for so high technology submarine.

DCNS will surely loose due to the problems it created in the Scorpene deal and still continues as it was reported how it was not supplying material for construction of even first submarine and delaying to offer construct additional submarine at its homeport.

For this kind of technology transfers, you have to be up to the task. For the Scorpene deal such shipyard competence problems occured. As well tech transfers procedures that were in the deal have to be respected. DCNS is criticized but I didn't heard of any penalty! Probably because they may not be the one to blame.

The project p75i competition itself is confusing. The probable contenders listed above were already the part of previous p75 competition in which scorpene was selected except soryu. And its 100% sure soryu will not be offered due to US & Japan policies. Infact the type214,gotland,amur are of same generation like that of scorpene. In that case follow on scorpene can be manufactured at MDL with greater ease. For p75i the actual contenders should be type216(hdw), smx ocean(dcns), kss-III project(South Korea). Though they are in design phases but these are next generation ssk with vls, greater endurance & payload and are… Read more »

NSR says — Many issues such as Brahmos, Nirbay, etc launch from the new submarines should be considered… Japanese Soryu and France Barracud are big enough for ocean going but I am not sure Japanese or France willing to supply any TOTs or MOTs…The performance of France/DCNS on Scorpene takes it out of the contest…prior performance is very important or else they will never shape up… I guess that leave Russian Amur or German HDW216 and hope that they will pick private company like L&T to build them… It looks like everyone promises technology but no one transfers it and… Read more »
