Russian Cheetahs become obsolete: Vietnam is eyeing frigates


The goal of Vietnam is to make a revolution in military affairs by turning the troops into an army that meets the demands of the times. It is being implemented as part of the Step by Step to the Present program, gradually improving the quality of weapons and equipment.


No submarines needed


Recently adopted by Hanoi, the White Paper on Defense maintains this course, focusing on the development of the naval fleet.

In the next 5 years, Vietnam will not be able to acquire a larger number of submarines, but priority will be given to surface combat and other ships

- Fan Van Giang, chief of the General Staff of the Army, explained, indicating that the country's Navy is now rated as the most modern in ASEAN. This state of affairs must be maintained.

According to VietDefense, pennants are still being written off in South Korea: another Pohang type corvette and two Ulsan class frigates have been dismissed. It is alleged that of these, Hanoi promised two ships. The Vietnamese military are deeply modernizing the units donated by Seoul, installing instead of relatively light weapons powerful Russian anti-ship systems "Uran-E". So, two Pohangs have already been converted, which have turned from actually patrol vessels into shock pennants: they are capable of carrying 8 anti-ship missiles X-35 Uran-E (or their local counterpart KCT-15).


Ship type Flight III Pohang with Uranus-E


What to choose in Russia


However, the naval program provides for not only replenishment of the fleet through the modernization of foreign ships, but also the acquisition of new units. During a recent visit to Russia by the chairman of the country's National Assembly, Nguyen Thim Kim Ngana (December 2019), she discussed Vietnam’s intention to purchase a third pair of Cheetah frigates 3.9 (each of them carries 8 Uran-E anti-ship missiles).

As some sources reported yesterday, the navy may choose another option because the Cheetah design is considered obsolete. In this regard, earlier the Navy is eyeing the Russian frigates of the project 22350 and 11356Р / М

- notes VietDefense.

At present, the striking forces of the Vietnamese fleet are represented by 6 submarines of the Hanoi type (local designation is Varshavyanka 636.1) armed with Caliber-E, Cheetah corvettes 3.9 (4 units) and Pohang (2 pennants) equipped with Uranom-E ", one patrol ship PS-500 with a similar system and 12" Lightning "with anti-ship missiles" Termite "(4 boats) and" Uran-E "(8 units).

    In general, in comparison with a large neighbor, Vietnam is complicated.
    Weight categories are not the same, fewer resources.
    The question is how to solve the problem.

      hi

      The question is how to solve the problem.

      Purchase 20350.
      What can I say, rolled out the lip is not weak laughing

      But to call the Cheetah obsolete is powerful. They built a very well-equipped ship.

        We can’t, and don’t want to contain “partners” ... moreover, history has shown a lot against such actions.

          If they have such a desire, then it must be satisfied as soon as possible, without going into the question - why do they need them and who are they going to fight with))

            If they choose 22350, then this will not even violate the plans of our program. This year, the last pair of 22350+ will be laid, and there is no talk about the continuation of this particular series yet, so next year you can lay a pair for Vietnam. But this is if the cost suits them, but certainly not cheap. For its fleet, the price is about 450 - 500 million dollars. , then for export, taking into account the export tax, the price will be about 700 - 750 million dollars. a piece .
            11356 it will not work to order, there the Ukrainian GEM is there.
            And as for the latest version of “Cheetah,” it’s now clear to whom the project was prepared (from the 16th KR to the UKKS), though the Bibc air defense system is there, but Vietnam seems to want all the same frigates.

                Nevertheless, these are risks. With India, how many years it took to negotiate, although both price and quantity, and a complete set were agreed ... and the Vietnamese themselves will have to negotiate with the Sumerians, but will they want this red tape?
                However, 11356 is much cheaper, but also weaker in all respects at times. In terms of price-quality ratio, 22350 is much preferable, especially in version 22350+ (with 24 KR in UKKS). Here and air defense, and the hull at altitude, and seaworthiness is better.
                But the price will be two times more expensive.

            In the early 90's, I studied at DOSAAF in Alma-Ata, specializing in radar operator - driver. Our teacher (uncle aged), often told us about that war. At first we thought he was "treating" us. But when he, on Victory Day, dressed all his orders and medals, we simply went nuts ... belay He told me that initially they had to train the Vietnamese and go back. But when they were already waiting for the ship, an order came to stay. The Vietnamese in a few days, due to negligence, lost part of the complexes. He said that the Vietas had a pronounced chuyka. Once, it saved his life. Shrike got into the station, 2 minutes after the Vietnamese pulled him out of there. On the screen, there was no goal.

              More than 2 million Vietnamese live in the States.
              Their average standard of living is higher than the average for the States - people are hardworking, energetic. Almost everyone lives in California, the richest state.
              And they have been investing a lot of money in Vietnam since Vietnam took the Chinese economic path.

            Deliveries to Vietnam even during the war were on credit, although interest-free and with a deferred payment. In addition, immediately after the war, our geologists found oil on their shelf and organized a joint venture with a profit in half. Each year, the USSR, and then Russia received $ 500 million. - 50% profit.
            And in the post-Soviet period, Vietnam always paid for weapons. Money. So if you want frigates and enough money - you are welcome. Neither India nor Vietnam complained about our ships.

      Perhaps it will be easier to cover the coast of the DBK? Because in an open battle with the Chinese, they generally "do not shine." It may be better to buy "balls" and "bastions" - a number more, for the same money that will be spent on ships. Moreover, the DBK firing range should be enough to cover Vietnamese targets at sea.

      Yes, compared with a large neighbor, Vietnam has no resources at all. Nobody will capture them already. Moreover, in our time, waging wars of conquest is more expensive. Now wars are fought exclusively for markets and political influence. And if there comes a direct confrontation, then a couple of corvettes, against a strong opponent, costs nothing.

      We must first understand what the problem is? Vietnam is unlikely to chase after China in the construction or purchase of aircraft carriers and "large destroyers". And what they need, and they need to do the maximum harm to the probable enemy even before approaching their coast, make it difficult for him to capture certain islands and coastal territories, and also complicate, or even prevent the actions of the enemy fleet, especially its amphibious forces. And for this we need exactly ships with excellent strike weapons, air defense and anti-aircraft defense and, if possible, not very large. So, their policy regarding the equipping of the fleet can be understood

        In short, it is very necessary to be in the subject, so that it is reasonably discussed.
        Honestly, not my topic, everything is very approximate.
        I just understand that they are very different in capabilities. But the arbitrator is not there!

          It is so there. Hydrocarbon deposits are discovered in the coastal zone and around the islands. But there is one more thing. Fighting China, or rather opposing the Chinese strategy of the "pearl necklace". They so beautifully called the strategy of creating their bases around the world to promote their interests and protect trade routes, and they are actively using, including the disputed islands, to create them.

            China has the heyday of the "millennial empire," another. If only it didn’t get to a big showdown ... then immediately those who want to warm their hands on this will climb!

              It seems that China understands this very well and is not trying to act abruptly, has switched to "creeping-force" tactics. It will take a plot and quickly equip it ... so that no one would even have a desire to dispute this by force.
              We are just watching this for now, but the United States is beginning to get very worried and in every possible way offer to increase the possible victims, such tactics of China. They are also well aware that China immediately takes control of the most important supply routes for Japan itself, which means it gets the opportunity to influence its eco-economy

      The combination of Varshavyanka and MRK 22800. There is no sense in anything more. Well, maybe a couple more cheetahs can be used for patrolling.

    Cheetahs Vietnam sold at 350 million dollars are virtually empty. This is almost the price of Gorshkov, at least for our navy, and he is an order of magnitude more powerful. Of course, they lick their lips. Not on pocket underfrigate 20385 they look. They already have it even a little thinner.

    With the growth of ambitions or ambitions of a neighbor, their needs also grow ....
    Cheetahs are good ships, but according to their ability to do so, air defense and anti-aircraft defense are weak. So Vietnam wants it, which is more serious. And still they can take it in Europe. FSA can contribute, knowing our problems with power plants for ships.

    I would have stood by the kulman for an hour, and would have begun to understand that refinement to tropical requirements (as export refinement was called here) cost money. Large. Other materials, plastic, cable products, electroplating, components, electrics, etc. ...) Will the translation into the local language of the whole bulk of the operating documentation be done by Kot Matroskin? With legally verified and notarized translation. If it was a batch of hundreds of pieces of iron, then the cost of refinement would be attributed to all units, and the cost of each would not be significant. The use of another tropical-resistant plastic usually requires the manufacture of a different mold, designed for a particular brand. And this, such a mediocre one, for pressing parts that way, 0,5 X 0, 5 meters costs more than a Zhiguli car.

      I’m afraid you are exaggerating the problem of “tropical-resistant” performance, correctly “tropical”. The problem is the opposite, when they bought Mistral, it was with great difficulty, just pulling an owl on the globe, adjusted to the operating conditions in the north. There is a serious problem - the use of structural cold-resistant steels.

    The Cheetah project is the development of the 90s and export-oriented. And two of these ships as part of the Caspian flotilla are those ships that could not be realized and built for themselves. Therefore, the Vietnamese are right in some ways. But the project 12418 missile boats are very even modern ships, both inexpensive and mastered. Is it possible to create something more modern on the Cheetah platform. This is a very complex issue, since measurements and displacement will not allow to establish a larger number of modern types of weapons.

    Vietnam has money. And not small. The giant Vietnamese diaspora living abroad, very generously supports Vietnam by sending money to the Central Bank of Vietnam. It seems to be to their relatives, and the government and Vietnamese financiers are very skillful at investing and charging great interest on this money. For example, here in the Czech Republic, Vietnamese with permanent residence permits, dual citizenship, and even only with Czech citizenship work in trade and culture (artists, TV commentators), and in law enforcement agencies, and appear in regional politics and they are not all small support the financial system of Vietnam.
    So, Vietnam has money and Vietnam is not as poor as it may seem from the outside. Vietnam can afford excellent military equipment, but, for now, it does not want to tease the Chinese "tiger".

    In 2013, this indicator (transfers to Vietnam) amounted to 11 billion US dollars, which is a record figure.

    Please do not forget to correctly quote:
    Sedelnikova S.F., Nguyen T.Kh. Formation of the Vietnamese diaspora abroad (“Viet-kyu”) and its contribution to the development of the national economy of Vietnam // Young Scientist. - 2015. - No. 10. - S. 780-782. - URL https://moluch.ru/archive/90/18714/ (accessed: 26.01.2020/XNUMX/XNUMX).
    for a 87 millionth country, it's a drop in the bucket. Moreover, in order to settle in Europe, a Vietnamese needs initial money for assimilation, bribes, etc., which reach more than $ 10000 each. Having become addicted, most are forced to engage in drugs and other illegal businesses. So, these incomes are semi-criminal and can be drastically reduced at any time. The outrage of the Czech population, where the largest diaspora in the world is already overlapping ....

    They built a very well-equipped ship.

    It’s better to put a Caliber instead of Uranus. Uranium then bullets from inclined launchers, and accordingly these launchers should be directed towards the target, in contrast to the vertical launchers under Caliber and Onyx.

    Of course it’s better, especially since there is a Cheetah with Caliber in the Caspian flotilla. Why didn’t they choose such equipment for their Cheetahs?

    hi

    What was the conversation about, don’t remember? About today or about half a century ago? What screens, what CADs? We did not know any such things then. Dissipated snot with envy in continuing education courses on this topic. In Moscow, in different smart academic research institutes. Three general notebooks scribbled along Grafore. That was the end of all our training. And about the materials. They had several molds for different ones. They differed in the degree of shrinkage. some - 2%, others - 3% on small sizes could not give a damn.
    About 0,2% only dreamed of. And the elbows bit with annoyance. But only a little bigger, thinner in the walls, so such warping, and distortions .... They spat on the national economy, for what emery. But the gold miners were forbidden to touch the surface with an abrasive. I am not one pound of salt with these comrades ...
