India to commission its first new conventional submarine after 17 years
NEW DELHI: “Sea denial” is the name of the game for conventional diesel-electric submarines. Their primary role is to interdict an enemy’s trade and energy routes, block its ports, sink its warships, and sometimes attack land targets with long-range cruise missiles.
Nuclear-powered submarines armed with nuclear-tipped ballistic missiles, called SSBNs in naval parlance, of course, are all about strategic deterrence. While India took a major step forward to complete its nuclear weapons triad by commissioning its first small SSBN called INS Arihant last year, to add to the existing Agni land missiles and fighter-bombers, its old and depleting conventional underwater combat arm has been a huge worry for the last several years.
