Indian gravy?
Navy seems to be a mish-mash
12/07/2007

Compared to the IAF and the Army, Indian Navy is a little more poised. With an array of frigates, destroyers, aircraft carriers and submarines to be inducted in the next one decade, the Indian Navy would truly have a formidable blue water capability in some years to come. With three Talwar class frigates already inducted, three more on order with Russia, the production of Scorpene submarines having already started and INS Ghorshkov slated to join in 2009, and even with the purchase of amphibious ship USS Trenton, the navy truly is now getting the right kind of attention that it deserved for long.

Yet, it has is own set of problems. Its Sea King helicopters and reconnaissance fleet of Tu-142 is fast depleting. What is badly needed are the P-3C Orion type planes. INS Virat is barely surviving and the navy’s submarine capability is next to nothing when compared to that of China’s. And though its ships are being inducted with Brahmos cruise missiles, its submarine ballistic missile launch capability is severely restricted. For a country surrounded significantly by water and ‘loving’ neighbours, India’s navy cannot remain a mish-mash bonsai. Unfortunately, the powers that may be still seem to be in a daze about these issues that could well one day have the power to destroy India...
