TV Station Gets 1st Video Images Of India's Arihant SSBN

I've been watching this video on loop for an hour. Don't really care that the actual clip is only a few seconds long. This is awesome because it's the first public video of India's Arihant nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine, scooped by local journalists for India's Zee News network. Here she is escorted out of the Vizag naval harbour area on Monday. (And yes, that's clearly a P17 class stealth frigate in the foreground).

Is she running on her own power or is being pulled by a tug?

Looks like the officers on board the Shivalik class are on deck to wish Arihant all the success on her maiden voyage !
