DAE's Official Cutaway of Arihant


This is an official illustration of India's Arihant SSBN, made available to Frontline magazine by the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE). The shape looks to be pretty much what we saw in Visakhapatnam, barring the hump contours immediately behind the conning tower.

Thats just a generic cutaway of how a nuke sub looks, not the Arihant.

Very good for a first indigenous attempt. Hope to see more bigger and better Arihants with such devastating capablity that India's enemies would think more than once before they launch a foolhardy attack.

India's arsenal for retaliatory reprisals should be of the nature that even the most powerful nations would realize the futility of attacking India with nuclear weapons.

WOW. Four missiles. OOOOOh, so impressive, now we can finally strike 4 cities in China or Pak after crusing up to their shores.

it is indeed a generic drawing, but the DAE has unwittingly created the illustration indeed in an authentic hull shape of the ATV. this is precisely what the arihant looks like. finally, the silly mystery is over. here she is. all those idiots who said she looks like a charlie or akula can now eat dust, positively stuff their mouths with it.

The missile system illustrated doesn't seems like a 700 km one, can anybody throw a light regarding the missile system to be integrated.

I think the Frontline article is one of the honest reporting of ATV. OThers were jumping to be the first to report and someone even speculated the design. This article even gives glimpse of the heart of ATV. Good work Frontline.

Interestingly it's different from previously displayed 4-tube VLS layout.

wow, one submarine. Lets all clap and aww when the 10th one comes out.

You don't need subs to defeat pakis and chinkis, all you need is determination and some balls. They have been destabalizing us for 30 years +, and we just cry like little bitches. Take charge and send in some rebels and support uprisings in their countries to show them it can go both ways, otherwise you are just a waste of time. Pussies

Any idea what is the current position of LCA Navy? when will it fly?

Given its 11m beam there is no reason why it would not be having 8 silos and not just the 4 that are visible in the front row. Is the assessment of 4 silos based on some concrete report or is it just a result of DDM misunderstanding based on what was visible or understood to them?
