Description

"Eleven years after India stunned the world by coming out of the nuclear closet, its planning another leap that will be the next big milestone in its emergence as a credible nuclear weapons power. On Sunday, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will launch India's first nuclear-powered submarine, which is being built to fire nuclear-armed ballistic missiles.Named INS Arihant (destroyer of enemies), the submarine will complete India's triad of nuclear weapons which can be fired from land, air and under the sea.The 5,000-ton vessel will be armed with 12 nuclear-armed K-15 ballistic missiles which have a 700 km range.The K-15s will later be replaced by 3,500 km-range K-X missiles.Its 80-MW nuclear reactor will ensure that it can stay submerged for as long as it takes.With a speed of 22 knots, it'll be much faster than conventional submarines, and for a ballistic missile-firing submarine, it is diminutive. It's 104-metre length and 10-metre width earning it the title of "The Baby Boomer"..........................
