Indian sub tragedy blamed on mishandling of Russian-made missiles

The recent disastrous submarine explosion in India which killed 18 Indian sailors was caused by Russian-made Klub missiles inside the vessel, according to the Indian newspaper Mumbai Mirror, citing sources from the Indian Navy.

According to the report, the crew placed the Klub anti-ship and anti-submarine missiles into two designated chambers, each containing missiles. While the first chamber was successfully loaded, two missiles in the second missile chamber were misplaced, causing an electric short circuit that triggered the accidental launch of one missile which hit the bulkhead and exploded.
