Scorpene leak continues; more details made public
A new set of leaked documents on India’s Scorpene submarines was published by Australian newspaper “The Australian” on Thursday, ‘Indian Express’ has reported.
The nine new pages of documents give details about the sonar system of the submarines which is used to gather intelligence underwater. There are also details of the “Operating Instruction Manual”, which talks about how to select a target for weapon firing.
More than 22,000 pages of information relating to Scorpene submarines were made public by ‘The Australian’ newspaper earlier. These documents pertain to information about operating instructions of the warfare system of the six Scorpene submarines which are being built in India by French firm DCNS.
The first of the six submarines, which are being built at a dockyard in Mumbai, was scheduled to go into service by the end of the year.
