The Indian Navy is steadfast in its endeavor to fortify its maritime defenses with cutting-edge submarines as part of Project 75I. The recent accomplishment of field evaluation trials (FET) in March marks a significant stride forward, propelling the project into its next phase.

Exploring German Expertise: U-212 Submarine Triumphs in FET

In March 2024, a delegation from the Indian Navy embarked on a pivotal journey to the ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems (TKMS) facility in Germany. Their mission: to conduct rigorous field evaluation trials (FETs) of the U-212C/D submarine, a contender for Project 75I. The outcome of these trials was resoundingly positive, affirming the submarine’s adherence to the technical specifications outlined in the Request for Information (RFI) previously issued.

Expanding Horizons: Venturing to Spain for Further Assessment

Undeterred by their initial success, the Indian Navy team now sets its sights on Spain, where they are poised to inspect the Navantia S-80 Plus submarine. This next leg of the evaluation process underscores the Navy’s commitment to thoroughness and diligence. Mirroring their approach in Germany, the team will meticulously scrutinize the S-80 Plus against the backdrop of the Navy’s exacting technical prerequisites.

A Comprehensive Selection Process: Evaluating Competing Submarines

The strategic decision to assess both the U-212C/D and S-80 Plus submarines in tandem exemplifies the Indian Navy’s dedication to ensuring the utmost efficacy and suitability for Project 75I. By subjecting each contender to rigorous field trials, the Navy can glean invaluable insights into their respective capabilities and performance metrics.

Charting the Course Ahead: Strategic Decision Making

As the Navy gears up for its forthcoming visit to Spain and the ensuing FETs for the S-80 Plus submarine, anticipation runs high. The outcomes of these evaluations will wield considerable influence in shaping the trajectory of Project 75I. Armed with firsthand assessments of each submarine’s strengths and capabilities, the Navy will be better equipped to make an informed decision that aligns with its operational imperatives and strategic objectives.
