Vietnam officially requested from Brasov PKR

23

During his November visit to India, the head of the Vietnamese Communist Party, Nguyen Phu Chong, made an official request for the supply of anti-ship missiles Brahmos, Russia & India Report reported. The visit took place immediately after Russian President Vladimir Putin's trip to Vietnam, and its agenda is determined by Hanoi's desire to diversify its military contacts without irritating China.


This is not the first year that India has been discussing the possible sale of Bramos RCC to Vietnam. Unnamed sources told RIR that India had expressed its willingness to deliver rockets and had long been looking for foreign buyers - such as, for example, Malaysia and Indonesia, who had already expressed interest in this rocket. According to the publication, the interest in RAM "Bramos" is associated with the need to urgently close the current needs for weapons of this kind until a similar development of the Russian-Vietnamese anti-ship missile project based on the X-35 "Uranus" (intergovernmental agreement on the development of the Kh-35EV missile was signed in October 2010) is sufficiently developed.

The publication also reports, citing its sources, that the Vietnamese leader requested from India assistance in training the Vietnamese Su-30 pilots and submariners, and India expressed readiness to provide such assistance, however, it is wary of further cooperation, keeping in mind the Chinese factor.

According to the Japanese publication The Diplomat, the visit of the Vietnamese Secretary General to New Delhi demonstrates Vietnam’s desire to reduce dependence on Russian military supplies and expand the pool of countries contributing to the development of Vietnamese armed forces. It is reported that in response to the Vietnamese request for the possibility of supplying warships, India took an unprecedented step - offered Vietnam a credit line in the amount of 100 million dollars for the purchase of four patrol ships. And soon after Cheong returned, it became known that India would prepare Vietnamese sailors for 500 to "carry out the full range of underwater operations" at its base of the preparation of the INS Satavahana submarine.

    An interesting situation. India, it seems, is not against the sale, however, it is wary, it is obvious that they feel that here too the nanochinese will leak out!

      If you first understand the issue, and then write comments, and not vice versa, it turns out that no Nanochinese are seeping there. And the reason for wariness on both sides is that relations between Vietnam and China and India and China are not very friendly. Moreover, China managed to fight with both countries over the past 50 years.

      Strange comment. Vietnam "nanochinese"? Vietnam is China's foreign policy adversary, and has not been noticed in terms of copying military technologies.
      Here is a completely different picture. Most of all, it seems that Russia is building an alliance between India and Vietnam to obtain a southern exit in the Asia-Pacific region. Talk about joining Vietnam to the CU on the agenda. Cooperation between India and Russia is on the rise, especially after the transfer of the aircraft carrier. Negotiations are underway with India to create a joint production of Ka helicopters in Indian territory. So the military support of Vietnam from the Indian side is quite reasonable.

    Poor, poor China - no one is jelling his leadership, it has not yet had time to move away from adopting a fully equipped and ready to use aircraft carrier by India (against the background of the fact that the Chinese themselves refused to give these technologies away), and now also BrahMos to the Vietnamese, with TTX which they can if not close, then significantly limit the capabilities of the PLA Navy

    From the category - "against whom will we be friends?" The Vietnamese are still waiting for a war with China.

      It is rather a principle of maintaining a balance of forces (equilibrium). I would not be surprised if all these gestures were made after consultation with ours.

        So the article explicitly says so - the head of the Vietnamese Communist Party went to India after Putin’s visit to Vietnam.

    In any case, the expansion of India and Vietnam into our Siberia is more difficult to imagine than the Chinese one already carried out by the "quiet (so far) glanders". So their confrontation is somewhat beneficial to us. But the war is not necessary, not only for us - the penguins will be hot.

    What a strange conclusion .... The question is, whose ships is India selling? And what does he take in return?

    Anti-ship cruise missile / cruise missile for firing at ground targets. An analogue of the domestic cruise missile "Yakhont" / "Onyx" developed by NPO Mashinostroenie (OKB-52 VN Chelomey) produced and developed for various platforms by the joint Russian-Indian enterprise "BrahMos Aerospace Pvt. Ltd."

    "... testifies to Vietnam's desire to reduce dependence on Russian military supplies ..." Something not a rosy prospect is visible. Now India is trying to reduce its dependence on Russian supplies, then Vietnam, then they refused from the DPRK. It's the same as the Russian fiefdom was for supplies. From the loss of economic ties, political ties are also lost.

      And it seems to me that it’s ours that they don’t want to quarrel with China, that’s giving India the opportunity to participate in the armament of Vietnam.

        Brahmos is a joint product and money is cut in half. We do not lose anything, we gain a balance of power and peace of mind.

        "And it seems to me that it is our people who do not want to quarrel with China, so they give India the opportunity to participate in the armament of Vietnam."

        Construction for Vietnam "Cheetah", "Lightning" (with the transfer of the license), and most importantly 6 submarines pr.636 and Su-30, this is much cooler than the "Brahmos", and nothing, we are resuming supplies to China, although the Su-35 is a dubious gamble ...

      testifies to Vietnam's desire to reduce dependence on Russian military supplies
      I want to remind you that the full name of the rocket sounds like this: Brahmaputra-Moscow, or BrahMos for short;) So everything’s okay, we’ll wake up any share from this anyway, besides, Indians, unlike the Chinese, are people of honor who will not throw unlicensed goods.

    Having abandoned Kamrani, they did even worse (for Vietnam) than the destruction of the USSR.

    It is likely that Vietnam will receive good from the Indians. For they have only one potential enemy - "great" China. And his claims are far from the most modest. Including Vietnam and India. Yes, and at one time he was noted for armed conflicts with these countries ...
    So with such a neighbor it is advisable to arm more and better ...

    If Brahmos is our joint production with India, moreover, all "science" is ours, so should we break off from the contract? Otherwise, the question of cooperation in the PAK-FA is somewhat annoying. request

    Actually, Bramos was created not only for arming the Indian army and navy, but also for deliveries to third countries. We have 50 percent in the joint venture, so no problem. Onyxes, we still have no right to sell to anyone.

    Og. The Japanese, as well as some other potential partners, really want to make all the buyers of Russian weapons less dependent on Russian military supplies ... laughing And, of course, it rose from the military supplies of their allies.

      What they want in Tokyo is understandable (and by the way, I won’t be surprised if the Land of the Rising Sun begins to support Vietnam), it’s another matter that the Vietnamese are unlikely to make decisions by reading the Japanese press.
      Perhaps India is a politically and economically more convenient partner than buying Onyx directly from Russia.

      It is only practice that shows whom it is to whom it is shown, and in order to have less such practice, limiters of other people's desires are acquired and created.
