India's first nuclear submarine heads for sea trials
India has the Agni ballistic missiles and fighters jury-rigged to deliver nukes but the triad’s underwater leg has remained elusive so far.
Everything looks nice on a piece of paper, especially on a newspaper. India is a big (poor) country with million-plus non military problems. Modi at helm proposing a strong (military-wise) nation is making suitable noises, here and there but has no idea, a firm plan or a structure to fulfil his so called 'vision.' Under the monetary and economic stress, as of today, tomorrow and thousands of tomorrows, how can he keep such falsehood floating? I am asking Parrikar, et al. Modi, U2.
Cold War Timeline. From 1945 to 1991, the Cold War dominated international affairs. The global competition between the United States and the Soviet Union took many forms. But overshading all was the threat of nuclear war. Submarine & Cold War History
Submarines have a long history before the Cold War began in the 1940s. The first American example was built during the Revolution, and the first successful sinking of a surface vessel by a submarine dates to the Civil War. However, the development of the nuclear-powered submarine in the 1950s by the United States and its incorporation into the strategic triad of defensive weapons altered global politics significantly, and its presence in the world's waters remains a powerful deterrent to nuclear warfare today.
