The $ 3.45 Billion paid to DCNS for designing the Scorpene submarines specifically for India suddenly looks huger than at any time earlier.
Many details of the submarine are available now in the public domain and possibly already with India’s strategic threats. Of more than 20,000 pages supposed to have leaked, more than 500 pages pertain to the torpedo system itself.
The submarine, christened Kalvari (Tiger Shark) was supposed to strengthen India’s navy. Many theories are floating on the origin of the leaks. But this is one Kala-vaari (means being tripped in Tamil) that may take some getting up from.
