INS SINDHURAKSHAK A visiting Indian Navy submarine was escorted out of harbour towards the Nab where she remained on surface for a while

The submarine is the seventh of the Indian Navy’s ten-strong Kilo class fleet to be refitted in Russia but the first to be handed back in ice conditions. In August 2008 INS Sinhuvijay also visited the city on her way home from the two-year long refit. The work includes equipping the submarines with a cruise missile capability. INS Sindhurakshak is scheduled to depart on 24 February.


In the background is HMS Warrior, here are the dimensions of HMS Warrior because she is very large

Design specifications Length overall: 420 feet (128m) Deck length: 380 feet (116m) Beam (Width): 58 feet (18m) Displacement: 9,210 Tons Draught: 26 feet (8m)

All those Kilo-class subs were built in Russia under Project 887EKM developed by Rubin Design Bureau (St. Petersburg). They are used for antisubmarine and antisurface warfare, as well as defense of naval bases, protection of coastal and sea lanes, reconnaissance and patrol missions. Their displacement is 2,300 tons, length is 72.6 meters, submerged speed is 19 knots, test depth is 300 meters, crew is 52 men, endurance is 45 days, armament includes six 533-mm torpedo tubes with combat load of 18 torpedoes. As a result of modernization, the subs received new Russian missile system Club-S with 200-km cruise missile range, Indian sonar USHUS and radio communication systems CCS-MK.

Diesel-electric submarine INS Sindhurakshak was built by Admiralteyskie Verfi shipyard in St. Petersburg and handed over to Indian Navy in 1997.
