The United States may officially be the world’s last superpower, but it appears that India and China are also rising fast. India, in particular, is a growing economy with an impressive military. India and China are both nuclear powers with enormous populations.
India has taken one more step toward superpower status by launching a nuclear-powered submarine. India has become the sixth nation on the planet to achieve this fear. The INS Arihant is capable of launching missiles over 400 miles away and comes in conjunction with three Indian carriers being rebuilt or constructed.
This move is a large one for India and may be the first of a rebuilding program. Close ties with Russia, the US, and Israel could help India gain a larger military foothold.
