Vietnam Media: Kilo Ensures Us Dominance

21
Russian submarines of the Varshavyanka type, which, according to Western classification, belong to the larger Kilo family, are the key to the dominance of Vietnam’s submarine forces in Southeast Asia. This opinion was expressed by VietDefense.




Given that the British military command is concerned about the capabilities of the Kilo submarines and the severity of the threat they pose, this makes us think about the real capabilities of the underwater fleet Vietnam.

- notes VietDefense.

The country's arsenal consists of six pennants of the 636 project. They are capable of hitting both land and sea targets with Klub cruise missiles. Despite the differences between this type and the 636.3 modification, which is on the equipment of the Russian fleet, they nevertheless "have similar characteristics, the most noticeable of which is stealth - hence the nickname" black hole "," indicates VietDefense.

Currently, only 4 countries from 11 have submarines in ASEAN (soon there will be 6, given Myanmar, which receives the Kilo submarine from India, and Thailand, whose submarines are being built in China).

According to the publication, the Kilo fleet cost the treasury 2 billion dollars, including funds for staff training.

This amount of money is only a small part of what was lost due to corruption problems (as was the case with the former Navy chief Nguyen Van Hien).

- writes the edition.

In this regard, VietDefense hopes that the anti-corruption campaign that has unfolded in the country will suppress bribery among military officials, and the funds will go not into their pockets, but for the benefit of modernizing the country's armed forces - the purchase of ships, aircraft and submarines.

    Anti-corruption company ... This, of course, is great. If only this is not the State Department’s PR Navalny-Sable.
    On the other hand, it is hard to believe that the current government, after "unconditional victory" in the last elections, is capable of seriously fighting against embezzlement.

      Are you talking about Zelensky? Just in the article about corruption in Vietnam, before commenting - read the article. not just the training manual.
      PiSi: why in the USA they killed in the prison an oligarch who had connections with Prince Harry and Trump? Did he know too much?

      And what kind of vegetable letter X to the British worry about the possibility of submarines of countries in Southeast Asia ?! Their domination was blown away and let them forget what and where their ancestors did around the world! Or they will try to remind how Indians revolted by tying people to guns!

        Are they (the British) concerned about the power of Vietnam's submarine fleet? Or p / l "Varshavyanka" are in service only with Vietnam? The quote you quoted was written in the VietDefense media outlet, and this is what the article says. You have to be more careful.

      And why do the neighbors need submarines? Superfluous attribute for "independent" as well as their independence. If they had money, the striped owners would have sold them a few worn boats. So dumb pennies.

        so they striped owners would have steamed a few worn boats.

        Well, if only on lease (as we do to Indians). The states do not have diesel, but only nuclear submarines ... And the Black Sea ... "does not dispose" to their basing.
        So your offer is not accepted! bully

          Yes, for God's sake, say what you want, only there are imperfections such as "Andrei Nikolaichi" who allow extremely contemptuous insults to my country, summarizing all one size fits all.
          Only this prompted me to respond, Russia for me and the Russians is the hope and belief that we are one people and one country, despite such as "Andrei Nikolayich".

      Vietnam in terms of military power among the countries of the region is one of the coolest countries. Of course, we will not take China into account. And then Vietnam gives everyone a head start. Both on land and at sea. It’s only a pity that it is moving more and more away from us and getting closer with strip-eared partners

        Literally just watched.
        In Moscow, negotiations are held Gerasimov with a delegation of the Ministry of Defense of Vietnam.
        The subject of negotiations is the deepening of military-technical partnership.

    And I advise you, before you hang up the labels, read the entire koment, and not just the last paragraph.
