India to lease Russian nuclear sub
Built to engage surface forces and coastal facilities, the Akula-2 class sub is equipped with 28 nuclear-capable cruise missiles.
Their striking range is 3,000 kilometers.
The Indian version is expected to be armed with more than 40 fire-units, including 28 nuclear missiles with a 300 kilometers range.
The submarine's propulsion machinery consists of a 190 megawatt pressurized water nuclear reactor.
It's claimed to be one of the quietest Russian-built submarines.
According to the Hindustan Times, the sub will be leased to India for 10 years.
