Description: The Indian Navy Advanced Technology Vessel (ATV) is a top secret nuclear-powered submarine program intended to provide India with three nuclear-powered boats by 2015. The first submarine named Arihant, Destroyer of Enemies, is expected to undergo sea trials by mid-2009. These ships will be equipped with nuclear-capable long-range strategic missiles. One potential weapon option for ATV submarines could be a nuclear-capable K-15 Sagarika or a derivative based on any other indigenous ballistic missile system. The Indian Navy procurement of INS Chakra, a Russian-built Akula II submarine, may be intended to gain the expertise in nuclear submarine operations, deployment and maintenance prior to the deployment of domestic submarines. The Arihant design is based on Charlie I submarine leased from the Soviet Union by India in the late 1980s. As of mid-2016 the Indian Navy plans call for the commissioning of four vessels before 2025.
