Recent satellite imagery has sparked speculation about a new facility being constructed near Cochin Shipyard in India. Experts believe this facility could be dedicated to developing larger nuclear submarines. The key features raising eyebrows include a new dry dock seemingly built for constructing massive vessels. This coincides with the location’s proximity to L&T Heavy Engineering, a company already supplying hulls for India’s existing nuclear submarine program.

The exact purpose of the new facility remains unclear. Some suggest it might be geared towards building nuclear-powered attack submarines, while others speculate it could be part of the S5 ballistic missile submarine (SSBN) program. An SSBN is a nuclear-powered submarine specifically designed to launch ballistic missiles.

India’s nuclear submarine program is a strategically significant endeavor. Currently, the country operates one operational nuclear submarine, the INS Arihant, with 3 more in various stages of trials.

While the satellite imagery hints at a significant development, Indian authorities have yet to officially comment on the purpose of the new facility. More information is likely to be revealed in the coming months.
