Russian engine on anti-ship missiles X-35 in Vietnam can be replaced by South Korean


South Korea is negotiating the export of the SSE-750K turbojet engine to Vietnam, which is trying to achieve further progress through its own anti-ship missile program thanks to the new power plant.

Vietnam has been showing interest in acquiring a rocket engine for some time, but has not yet found a supplier

- writes ROK Armed Forces.

At the same time, according to the publication, it is not known what Hanoi is counting on: to get a power plant for a completely new anti-ship missile system or to replace it with an engine of Russian origin on the product KKT-15 - a licensed copy of the X-35.

X-35 is a subsonic low-altitude missile designed to destroy ships with a displacement of up to 5000 tons. It is in service with the Uranus complex, which is equipped, in particular, with Vietnamese warships and boats.

The development of the South Korean SSE-750K turbojet engine was completed in 2015 along with the creation of the SSM-750K Sea Dragon tactical strike missile. The main difference between the new SSE-750K powerplant and the older SS-760K is the level of localization of production of critical components. Replacing them with local products allowed to reduce costs and increase competitiveness in the foreign market.

    It is unlikely that they will change the engine on the X-35. It is very troublesome.

    Do I understand correctly that for some time the details for the X-35 were made in Ukraine? And what is the story of the train, whether with the abduction or with the murder of the developer of the X-35 guidance head?

    In general, this is already becoming a system, "our" weapons are being modernized by "not ours." Indeed, several decades of "doing nothing" in our defense area do not go in vain ...

      "doing nothing"

      You are mistaken, dear! There is an intensive budget cut, in all directions!

        Well, you are now busy with this, and speaking of "doing nothing", I meant the 90s and 00s

    further progress in the implementation of the program to create its own anti-ship missile
    To assemble one missile from two imported pieces, and consider it own, is somehow strange.
