Stealth submarines upgraded for India could hit targets at sea and on land


After an upgrade, the Russian-made Indian ‘Varshavyanka’ submarines of Project 877 EKM will be able to strike not only vessels, but also ground targets with cruise missiles, Igor Vilnit, CEO of the CDB ME “Rubin” that designed the submarines, said.

He also said the possibilities of the strike missile complex Club-S, installed on these submarines, would be expanded, reports TASS.

“After the modernization, ships of 877EKM project will be able to use two types of missiles – 3M-54E against naval targets and 3M-14E against ground targets,” – Vilnit said.

In addition, the modernization process would involve part of the submarines’ avionics.
