Chinese submarine sneaks past Indian Navy to dock at Pakistan seaport of Karachi

There is a much uproar in India on a rather rare incident in which a Chinese submarine sneaked past Indian Navy eyes and docked at Karachi seaport of Pakistan for almost a week.

The Yuan-class submarine '335' - which is considered by India as China's deadliest conventional submarine, set sail from its base on Hainan island in the South China Sea as can be seen in the map above. It is equipped with torpedoes, anti-ship missiles and an air-independent propulsion that dramatically enhances its underwater endurance.

The Chinese submarine spent a week on an 'Operational Turn Around' in Karachi, military-speak for refueling and restocking the submarine and resting its 65-man crew.
