Indian subs delayed further, but more boats approved

30th October 2014 - 08:50 GMT | by Neelam Mathews in Delhi


The delivery of the first P-75 submarines for the Indian Navy has been delayed by at least another year, bringing the delay to four years in total.

Shephard has learned that the first boat, built by Mazagon Docks in Mumbai to a Scorpene-class design from French Shipbuilder DCNS will not be delivered until late-2016.

This is at least a year later than expected. At Defexpo in Delhi in February, DCNS told Shephard that the first boat would be commissioned in 2015. Originally when the programme was conceived the first boat had been due to enter service in 2012.
