Nice pix of the sub. Looks like an old veteran diesel-electric vessel.

Lucky, Vizag is a Naval Base? If so what zone?

Was this sub based here, in the eastern coast rather than the western coast which was closer to Pakistan shores??

Vizag has the Eastern Naval Command..(responsible for the security of eastern coast)


On the other hand, there are two naval commands on the west coast (for obvious reasons )

Southern Naval Command - Kochi
Western Naval Command - Mumbai

(I know we have to keep defense issues out of this forum...but since u have asked about it)..


If u are wondering how come vizag came into picture (when it is on the easten coast) in the 1971 indo-pak war.....U have to read this article about the pakistani attack on the Vizag port:
http://www.bharat-rakshak.com/1971/Dec05/Art03.htm


The remains of the destroyed submarine PNS Ghazi are today displayed along the beach road....and every year a Navy Mela (with large scale Naval exercises) is held commemorating that particular day (December 5th).

PNS Ghazi

Thanks Lucky for the info...

BTW I was wondering whether this sub was based in Vizag, during its operational period and not in Mumbai or Kochi which is more closer to Pakistani shores and quick for an action. Otherwise it would take a long time for this sub to circumnavigate Srilanka and Indian peninsula and reach the north western coast....

I am not sure of this particular sub..

The enemy would have thought that it would be more easier to attack the eastern coast against the well fortified western coast....

One cannot field the entire submarine fleet at the time of war on the west coast ...just because it is closer to Pakistan...some of them are also stationed on the east coast .... to defend against unexpected attacks like the one that happened on December 5th,1971.
