Submarine has a lot of extra food in store. There will be lot of food that submariners can buy like chocolates etc.. other than regular rations. By the way Indian Naval personal who are Submariners - wear Dolphin patches which calls for that extra pride.

An Indian serving submariner once alluded that Indian submarines can do or actually do 150 days at sea in one go!

No cameras allowed means no point in watching TV. Times Now has increased the tonnage of the sub to 5500 tonnes now. Hell, each news channel has its own speculation.
On the controary, I expect the media to log on to BR for info. :rotfl:

The ship building center's dry dock's shed is like 250 meters long.
The arihant is 104 meters long.
L&T already has two more hull parts completed.
GoI has banned all photography inside.

Around 11am Times Now said that the launch would happen "in an hour". I think I confused 11am being the time of the launch when it was probably meant to be the PM's arrival time.

Interesting.... no psts on other threads... looks like Arihant is on everyones mind.

In a few hours, BR will become like during the A3 launch... clogged!!

More than the launch, I can't wait till PIB releases the first pictures like this one...

Imagine the chills that will go through our enemies then.

Idiots, DDMs in Hindustan Times.

1. Graphic stolen from Sandip Unnithan.
2. The dorks mention the Ohio class sub as "The world's largest" The fools havent heard of a Typhoon class sub (Which is bigger than the Hindustan Times building including their parking lot)
3. The Arihant can do 30 kts, the Ohio can do 25 onlee.

Today these DDM rats are building up the ATV project. Yesterday they were running it down. Tomorrow again these guys will be desperately looking for some excuse to find fault.

OK fellas those of you who are monitoring TV channels....has the baby been delivered or are we having last minute complications? Hopefully the birth wont require a caesarean of the SBC shed. :mrgreen:

I am monitoring 4 channels right now. Doordarshan had a small piece on the ATV launch, but I missed it. They were showing some navy ships.
The pvt channels are showing some food or lifestyle show. Sheesh. :x
