The chief has underscored an alarming shortfall in warships and submarines, adding to the worry caused by earlier reports that the navy’s capital warships — the aircraft carriers, destroyers, frigates, corvettes and submarines that constitute its strike power — remain hamstrung by the absence of essential, onboard equipment. In this context, our lead editorial notes that, with an increasingly aggressive China probing the border with India, the army’s share in the budget is likely to expand, probably at the navy’s cost. It is essential, therefore, to ensure that the navy’s plans and capabilities are harmonised with a realistic assessment of resources.
