Indian Navy: Planning is underway to include Germany’s Type 212CD submarine in the Indian Navy’s Project 75I. According to defense sources, it is the first in the race for the German submarine project. However, defense experts have expressed their displeasure about this submarine. The world’s top defense experts do not consider this German submarine to be correct, placing it in the category of zero. He says that this submarine is very slow in terms of today’s modern technology. Russia has expressed its objection to this decision.

What is the specialty of German submarine?

According to Indian defense sources, the stealth design of the Type 212CD is brand new and modern. Its lower surface is diamond-shaped, due to which it can destabilize the waves of active sonar. CD stands for Common Design. This submarine has a new combat system, which is known as ORCA. This system can then be used to test large amounts of sensor data. Germany’s Thyssenkrupp Marine Systems (TKMS) is building two such submarines, one for the German Navy and one for the Norwegian Navy.

How much does a submarine cost?
The government of Germany and Norway signed a joint agreement in June 2017. Under this, missiles will also be manufactured for the Navy. According to a report, the construction of two submarines will cost about $ 6.4 billion. Their construction work will be completed in the year 2023. After this, in the year 2029, a submarine will be handed over to the Norwegian army. At the same time, the German Navy will get this submarine in the years 2031 and 2034. This submarine will be put into service by the year 2060.

What is Project 75?
Project 75I or Project 75 is an ambitious project for the Indian Navy. Six advanced submarines were to be built under this project. In January 2020 the Defense Acquisition Council (DAC) named Mazagon Docks Limited and Larsen & Turbo as Indian partners in the project. Apart from this, two companies from South Korea, one from France, one each from Spain, Russia and Germany were selected. Recently, a senior Russian official has said that the conditions that India has placed are completely unrealistic. According to him, this process cannot proceed until these conditions are changed.

Decision will be taken by the end of December
The Ministry of Defense has extended the deadline of this project for another 6 months on 30 June. Now by the end of December, Russia will have to take a decision in this deadline. General Andrey Baranov, deputy director of Russia’s Rubin Design Bureau, said at the Army-2022 Expo that the requirements placed by India in the Request for Proposal (RFI) are very strict. After these conditions, a lot of responsibilities fall on the designer. They say that the designer has no control over the manufacturing in India.

No prototype of such submarine in the world
The Indian Navy has also requested the Defense Ministry to relax certain conditions. Baranov said the specific requirements placed by the Navy are indeed a matter of concern. He said that the Indian Navy wants technology transfer, state-of-the-art submarines with powerful missiles, stealth and some such conditions have been laid under the project but no navy in the world has a prototype of such a submarine.
