UN Dispatch: On Sunday, India launched their first Indian-built nuclear-powered submarine, named Arihant. It's a 6000-ton vessel, capable of launching a range of missiles and currently armed with nuclear-tipped ballistic missiles. The Indian officials at the launch were particularly effuse in their thanks to Russia for providing technical support to the sub's development. . . . The sub, in fact, is only 60% Indian materials; the rest, in particular the mini-reactors, was supplied by Russia.
