India is continuously increasing its arsenal of modern weapons. It is purchasing many weapons from abroad and developing many weapons and technologies in India itself. In recent times, China has been continuously increasing its interference in the Indian Ocean. In such a situation, India has made a big deal to deal with the threat of China. This deal is about dangerous submarines. This deal of submarines worth Rs 45 thousand crore will be a big blow to China and Pakistan.
India will purchase killer submarines worth a huge amount of Rs 45 thousand crore with the aim of increasing the security of its maritime borders and increasing its maritime power. For this, European country Germany has given a big offer to India. The German government has offered India a deal to purchase 6 state-of-the-art submarines between the two governments. Talks have taken place between India and Germany regarding this big deal. Along with Germany, another European country Spain also wants to sell submarines to India.

China’s increasing interference in the Indian Ocean
India has been trying to make a big deal for submarines for a long time amid the recent increasing strength of the navies of China and Pakistan in the Indian Ocean and the malicious attempts by Chinese ships to spy on the strength of the Indian Navy.
Germany’s Defense Minister also took interest
