Vietnam intends to order the construction of two Cheetah-3.9 frigates

Vietnam intends to order the construction of the third pair of Cheetah-3.9 frigates at Zelenodolsk Shipyard named after A. M. Gorky. This was reported by the press service of the President of the Republic of Tatarstan.


Tatarstan was visited by the delegation of Vietnam led by the Chairman of the National Assembly of Vietnam, Ms. Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan. During the visit, the intention was expressed to order the construction of two more Cheetah-3.9 frigates for the Vietnamese Navy to four existing ships of this type built at Zelenodolsky Shipyard.

At the same time, it is believed that this order may be the last against the backdrop of reports of Vietnam’s intention to switch to Western weapons in connection with the dissatisfaction of the Vietnamese military with Russia's trade policy.

Recall that on Zelenodolsky Shipyard, the 4 frigate of the Cheetah-3.9 project was previously built for the Vietnamese Navy. Ships were built in pairs. The first contract for two frigates was concluded in 2006, in 2011 both ships were transferred to the Vietnamese Navy. The second was concluded in October 2012, ships were handed over to the customer in 2016 and at the end of 2017, respectively.

Light frigates of the Cheetah 3.9 project with a displacement of about 2,2 thousand tons are equipped with rocket and artillery, aviation and anti-submarine weapons, as well as radio engineering, mine and anti-sabotage weapons. A ship can carry a helicopter.

The main purpose - the fight against air, underwater and surface opponents; setting minefields, as well as active and passive interference. The ships of this project can accompany and guard convoys, patrol borders, fight smugglers, poachers and pirates. In addition, Cheetah-3.9 is able to assist distressed ships, seek and save people at sea.

      So I liked the frigates))
      And the fact that someone is dissatisfied with something and wants to switch to Western models is lobbying for mattresses, some Vietnamese comrades have too little memory.

        The versatility of the Gepard-3.9 frigates with their price and quality is what attracts Vietnam when buying them.

        This is strange, the West, unlike us, does not forgive debts and does not give anything for nothing. And the price tag is not an example to us.

        with the dissatisfaction of the Vietnamese military with Russia's trade policy.

        Vietnam mainly imports Russian machinery and equipment, materials and raw materials, charging zero or very low import duties, which is why Russian goods go to Vietnam with almost no obstacles. At the same time, goods coming from Vietnam — textiles, footwear, agricultural and seafood, etc. — come up against serious protective barriers. For this reason, it is very difficult for Vietnamese goods to enter the Russian market, and it is difficult for Vietnam to avoid a negative balance in trade with Russia.
        The customs formalities in Russia and Vietnam are still very complicated in comparison with other states, which is negatively perceived by the entrepreneurs of each country.

          Interesting information, but the volumes of potentially imported from Vietnam to Russia and vice versa are incomparable.

            You will be surprised.
            Russia's exports to Vietnam in 2018 was $ 2, an increase of 29,12% ($ 554) compared to 257.
            Russia's imports from Vietnam in 2018 was $ 3, an increase of 9,03% ($ 300) compared to 216.

            It is not clear where the information about the dissatisfaction of the Vietnamese comrades with the negative balance comes from.

            A trade deficit is just for Russia.
            But the Vietnamese, apparently, is not enough.

      The only thing is that they are not going to give up Russian weapons very well. Although when they look at the gay European and mattress price tags, they will change their minds. Vietnam, of course, is not the poorest country, but the prices for Western equipment are not childish.

      -----
      In short: the Vietnamese are accustomed to "freebies" and to PAY - well, for them, it is "not comme il faut" ... USSR ...... We chose the USSR !!!
      Now - another problem: "either" states ", or" Russia ".....
      In short: as in the "bearded" anecdote: "the romance" Meditations "" ......

    Beautiful ship. If this passes and then gets into the raid where the thread is near Peter or Sevastopol, hundreds of boys will have their eyes lit up and their hearts will be forever given to the sea.
    PS No offense to your favorite wings! hi Well, really beautiful.

    -Lightweight frigates of the "Gepard 3.9" project with a displacement of about 2,2 thousand tons.
    I am not a sailor, but what does a light frigate mean. According to the old classification-TFR, i.e. a corvette?
    These are the ships in the Coast Guard. I think that they will be able to provide "cover" for nuclear submarines.

    Glad for Zelenodolsk, I can’t understand one thing. Where does Zelenodolsk take engines for its ships / ships ?!
    Some miracles, however.
    These guys spar without end, and for some reason they have no problems.
    For some reason we are sitting in the opera. A month ago, the diesel engine should have arrived, or even earlier, on two ships. When they should be expected, no one knows.
    The devil knows, maybe from the New Year * Rostec * will finally begin to seriously engage in something at the factory. As long as you have to go on vacation from forced idleness.
