Re: Indian Nuclear Submarines -3

Gurus, newbie ques, a submarine's displacement is higher when submerged than at surface. Is it because of the added weight as the ballast tanks get filled with water when submerged or are there additional forced adding to high displacement when the submarine goes under water.

Gurus, no takers for this question so far, but saw some random articles about Agni 6 scheduled to be tested sometime now. Anyone heard about it? Or have we shelved it due to fear of sanctions. Our K6 SLBM is based on Agni 6 MIRV as well.
