Vietnam Media: Kilo Ensures Us Dominance

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, something is poorly believed that the current government, after a "unconditional victory" in the recent elections, is capable of seriously combating 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!

        But are they (the British) concerned about the power of the submarine fleet of Vietnam? Or submarine "Varshavyanka" are in service only with Vietnam? The quote you quoted was written in the Vietnamese media "VietDefense", and the article says so. You have to be more careful.

      Why do the neighbors need submarines? An extra attribute for the "independent" as well as their independence. If there was money, then striped owners would have steamed some worn boats. So dumb pennies.

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

      Change the training manual and do not translate the arrows. Or until you get to Ukraine, can’t you sleep peacefully?

          Yes, for God's sake, say what you want, only there are imperfections like "Andrei Nikolaichi" which allow extremely contemptuous insults of my country, generalizing everyone to one comb.
          Only this prompted me to answer, Russia for me and the Russians is a hope and belief that we are one people and one country, despite such as Andrei Nikolayevich.

      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.
