To call out someone a troll just because you can't digest their opinion is immature. I tried to reason out why there is a clearly visible difference between the exterior build quality of the frontline destroyers of 3 countries above. Indian shipbuilding industry is very small. They don't feature in any list of prominent shipbuilding nations. Afaik, Indian shipbuilders are mainly undertaking government projects. As for the Indian destroyers, I don't know about the technology housed within such shoddy hulls BUT since India imports a lot of critical technology from other nations, i'd assume them to be a lot better in that area.It's too big to be called non existent. Lot of Indian civil ships & Naval ships are made in India.
Here I agree.
Stealth is generated from design and EW capabilities. Stealth is clear from the design.
Absolute trolling with nearly no knowledge about the particular topic.
I just look logged in on Sinodefence after a long time to say high to everyone. But seems that just like other forums, it too has become an echo chamber. Much more humble as moderators are still very rational. But agenda pushers haven't left any place. Sad.....
Anyways, I will start on posting again when I am able to spare time.
Stealth isn't clear from just design. Tolerances and attention to details regarding acoustics and vibrations play an important deal in stealth of submarines. If the exterior of the frontline destroyers are like this then it'd be hard to convince anyone that India, with little experience in submarine shipbuilding ( let along nuclear submarines) would churn out SSBN of atleast mediocre quality.
Your point being that judgement as a troll is therefore rubbish.
My third point was that Russian engineers would be facing difficulties in "equipping" new indian hands with necessary skill. It is a fact that nuclear reactors and subsystems used in Indian SSBN are of Russian origin or has been made with assistance from Russia with Russian specialists cooperating with the build. Are you implying that Indian technicians require no support from Russia or any other country to build an SSBN ? India would not be building Scorpenes ( a diesel electric) without the paid assistance of French engineers of DCNS . Enough a point.
This thread sure can turn into an echo chamber BUT hey, since you are here after a LONG time, i'd be not wrong in assuming that you'd invest some time to make this thread a bit balanced ?
