Segundo submarino de misiles balísticos de la Armada de India
January 4, 2021 -
La Armada de India recibirá un gran impulso con el despliegue de su segundo submarino de misiles balísticos. El INS Arighat está en las
etapas finales de pruebas en el mar y posiblemente entrará en servicio a principios de 2021.
Arighat is the second of the indigenous Arihant-class nuclear-powered ballistic missile-carrying submarine (SSBN).
Sources in the defence and security establishment said the submarine has performed well during the sea trials so far, and added that the commissioning of the vessel was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, according to Indian online newspaper ThePrint.
Once Arighat enters service, India will be operating two SSBNs that are equipped with the 750km-range K-15 ballistic missile, designed for retaliatory strikes in case of a nuclear attack.
