The $3.5 Billion Leak: Scorpene Submarines Exposed, India Assesses Damage  
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Highly sensitive details on what makes six submarines being built in Mumbai so crucial for India's security have been leaked, triggering an investigation to determine the extent to which one of the world's largest defense projects has been compromised.

More than 22,000 pages list the combat capabilities and other information on the Scorpene submarine and excerpts have been released by The Australian newspaper.

The Scorpenes, being built for 3.5 billion dollars at the state-run Mazagon shipyard, are considered some of the most advanced of their class in the world. They are so silent underwater that they are extremely difficult, if not impossible to detect. But now their sonar capabilities, the noise they generate and details of the combat system they are armed with are totally exposed.
