There’s news coming in that Russia has handed over the nuclear-powered attack submarine Nerpa to India following two years of delay.
The signing ceremony is believed to have happened yesterday at the Bolshoi Kamen ship building facility in the (Far East) Primorye region. The report says an Indian crew would sail the Akula II class craft to its home base at the end of January.
The 8,140-ton sub can fire Granat cruise missiles that can be nuclear-tipped.
