Yes I suppose. That tank appears to be a container for reactor inside so that people don't guess what is inside. There appears to be some monitoring equipment on the top and hence the steps and railings.

I fail to see the logic of stairs on reactor core. What purpose they serve? I can understand stairs on generation unit. I am open to suggestions.

Philip, both Arjun and T90 were available. It was decided to go for T90 citing t72 linage and easier production. The descision proved truma for rest of the years.

Re: INS Arihant (ATV) News and Discussion -2

Why do they need to cut open the hull for re-fueling? Is it because of how the reactor rods are designed? Any nuclear reactor core requires handling different.
