Military Review

Russia intends to increase its presence in the Thai market

15

6 November, a representative of Rosoboronexport in the light of recent deals for the supply of helicopters and air defense systems, told Jane's of his confidence in the increased presence in the arms market in Thailand. Until recently, military-technical cooperation with Thailand was at a relatively low level, which cannot be said of neighboring Indonesia and Malaysia, which over the past decades have bought a large number of Russian fighters, helicopters and combat vehicles.


The ROE representative at the Defense & Security exhibition in Bangkok noted that the recent successes in securing contracts for the supply of Mi-17V-5 multipurpose combat helicopters and Igla-S MANPADS could further open the market for the Russian industry.

In 2008, Thailand ordered three Mi-17B-5, which were delivered to 2011, and funding for the purchase of two more platforms was approved by the Thai government in October. The supply of 36 Igla-S MANPADS was completed in 2010.

“We would like to expand military-technical cooperation with Thailand,” said a representative of Rosoboronexport. “Previously, we didn’t have a strong position here, since Thailand traditionally preferred Western systems, but our recent sales show that Russia now also has opportunities to expand its presence in this market.”

The ROE representative did not disclose what exactly Thailand could purchase. However, in a press release published by the ROE on the eve of the Defense & Security exhibition, it was reported that Thailand's interest is expected to be focused on missile-carrying frigates Gepard 3.9 and etc. 11661, Amur-1650 submarines, Sunflower-E radar systems, training aircraft Yak-130, multipurpose helicopters and armored personnel carriers BTR-80A.

          How did I miss this news! So I knew there would be some nasty thing in the comments. In Thailand, the market is large - enough for everyone, if you do not try to cross.

            no, not enough, the main thing is to put on the "needle", which Ukraine seems to be missing, if the BTR-80A is bought, a stone is exactly in the Ukrainian garden

              But really let one be handed over to the Roal Thai Army and they will chase him for comparison with the Ukrainian. And then this speculation from your side about our clumsy weapons is tired.

                good I’m only afraid that some kind of M113 will be the best, and Ukrainian ones, after all, are the best in Ukraine and no one is unnecessary, not up to date, unloaded them there or not unloaded?

                  Generally deaf. SE PACIFICA stands in the Persian Gulf. But I did not mean this political "four", but those BTR-3E1, which are in service with the Thais.

      It is necessary to aggressively conquer new markets. It is clear that the development of military supplies goes alongside issues of political interaction. But where diplomacy does not have time, there will be time for ROE! And it will shut up competitors in ....

      Yes, so "about all sorts of attacks ..." Here unexpected enemies will sail, and they "in all weapons ...". In that region, too, not everything is calm and simple, there are enough disputed "islands" ...

      How against whom? Against American Democracy)

      Thais have always maintained peace in their land, and have never been a colony, so be it forever.

      Thailand officially professes Buddhism, but in the south there are a number of separatist Islamists, in principle, any state that supports Islam in Tae and supports it, for example, Qatar or Saudi Arabia, can be considered as probable opponents, which most likely is.
      In general, if you make an excursion into history, then at the end of the 19 and the beginning of the 20 century, the Shiam and the French looked like Siam only thanks to Russia, Tai did not become their colony

        Islamists are more like bonbon people and shooting in shopping centers. They are not capable of more. And they don’t need it.

          as far as I remember they are seeking a separate statehood, and if you google the news there is not shooting, there is outright terror.

            So I say. Islamism is terrorists. Their sponsors will not do more - they still like the situation. So neither Qatar, nor the Saudis will openly fight with anyone. Unless with Iran.

      Now with Cambodia is relatively stressful. I know a Cambodian who travels to Thailand every weekend to relax. Once the scuffle ends)))

      I am amused. As well as the mention of the BTR-80A. Helicopters may still be.

      By the way, who will explain where the American regional committee is looking only thanks to which Thailand is forced to cooperate with Ukraine on such ... dislike .. with the Russian Federation?

    And what we do not mind, Thailand already has all the neighbors with our weapons, especially Vietnam, the weapons are reliable and not for the fabulous grandmothers, as the United States sells.

      - in fact, gas was already detected two or three years ago, the Thais foolishly invited Gazprom, and the US Exxon-Mobile also wanted to. And then you remember - some Thai rattle jumped out of the fifth column, began to gather the crowd, the unrest started ... But the Russians, as I understand it, were distracted by Venezuela at that time, the elections were just there, Hugo Chavez was chosen. In Venezuela, after the election, great excitement was planned with the assassination of Hugo (although Hugo, half a year after those elections, still got sick and died), so Venezuela grazed Russian ships, etc. Therefore, in Thailand, Gazprom was soon kicked out, Exxon-Mobil entered.

      - Why should there be territorial disputes in the region? You got gas - they immediately showed you who and what you are worth, if you have a cardboard army. The Americans lost their nose to the Thais with that gas field, forcing him to give it to the United States corporations, I think the Thais are not stupid and understood everything. Whatever you dictate, feed your army. And what, A (what kind of verb did you have on nickname, didn’t enter), are you not aware of this story with that Thai gas field? Or do you use that verb?

    If it works out with the ships, it will be good, there are so many jobs and experience (especially important) for our workers and engineers. In armored vehicles, Ukraine sits well there, probably they will fall at a price. If you look, Thailand is a native American market, I think the pressure will be palpable. It is unlikely that the United States will allow them to sell high-tech expensive equipment there.

    Rat - (from Old Russian: abuse, quarrel, contention), in the military affairs of Russia this term had the following meanings:

    Armed forces as a whole or its component formations - army, militia, army, army
    War, campaign, battle repeat
