India issues RfI for six conventionally powered submarines

The Indian Navy (IN) has sent a request for information (RfI) to selected overseas manufacturers asking for details about locally building six diesel-electric submarines under the long-delayed Project 75 India (P-75I) programme, which is worth over INR500billion (USD7.8 billion).
Official sources told Jane’s that the RfI, which was issued on 19 July, was despatched to France’s Naval Group, Germany’s ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems, Japan’s Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Spain’s Navantia, Sweden’s Saab and Russia’s Rosoboronexport.
The document asks all original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to provide by mid-September operational details of their respective submarines with air-independent propulsion (AIP) systems and anti-surface, anti-submarine and land-attack capabilities.
