It's probably for the best. I hear they were carrying a large load of army blankets.

No, no. The Polish ones have screen doors, the Indian ones have those beads that hang down.

Rabid Badger Beaver Weasel: The 18 who died where trapped after the explosion and fire. Sad day to be a submariner, no matter what country.

ranak: I can only imagine the fate that awaits their new carrier. .

It's going to hit some sort of storm-induced temporal anomaly, and go back in time to 1857 on the eave of the Indian Rebellion, and the crew will attempt to interdict British colonial troops, only to be stopped by the reappearance of the storm which sent them back in time in the first place.

Shakespeare's Monkey: JohnCarter: It is an actual submarine..who knew

Well, it's more of an ex submarine now.

It's still underwater, so technically it's still sub-marine.

LoneVVolf: Last year, India acquired a Russian Nerpa nuclear submarine for its navy on a 10-year lease from Russia at a total cost of nearly $1 billion.

On Saturday, India activated the atomic reactor on its first indigenously designed and built nuclear submarine, which the navy could deploy in the next two years.

Mmmhmmm... Sounds like they only needed a 1-year lease to copy all that Russian tech over.

Let...  Let me understand your theory better.

It's your theory that the Indians leased a diesel powered submarine and reverse engineered a diesel powered engine to make a nuclear powered submarine.

Is that really the line of reasoning you want to be farkied for?  Really?

It's a Kilo class boat.

Sounds like a battery fire (relatively common hazard on diesel/electric boats), followed by some of the torpedoes cooking off.  Either that, or torpedo fuel ignited, which subsequently cooked off the warheards.

Also, there is a remote possibility that a raksasha was attacking zombie Darren McGavin, and he fired a crossbow bolt shorted out the high voltage bus on the main electrical switch panel, which then sparked and ignited the pure ethanol the chief of the boat had stashed back behind the panel for "medicinal purposes".  But that's a remote possibility.
