Vietnamese Navy took the second of six ordered submarines

Vietnamese Navy took the second of six ordered submarines

The second of six export diesel-electric submarines (diesel-electric submarines) of the 636 project ordered at Admiralty Shipyards (part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation) was transferred to the Vietnamese customer on Thursday, Interfax-AVN reports with reference to a source in the Russian shipbuilding industry .

“Now at the Admiralty Shipyards there is a ceremony of signing an act of technical acceptance of the second export corps by the Navy of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam,” the agency’s source said.

The contract for the supply of six submarines to Vietnam was signed in 2009 during the visit of the Prime Minister of the Republic Nguyen Tan Dung to Moscow. In addition to the construction of submarines, the contract provides for the training of Vietnamese crews, as well as the supply of necessary equipment and technical equipment.

The first submarine of the Vietnamese series was transferred to the Vietnam Navy 7 on November 2013 of the year. She was delivered to her base in Cam Ranh on December 31 of the year 2013 and on January 8 she made her first successful voyage. "On the eve of the final act was signed on the acceptance of the order," - said the agency interlocutor.

The third boat of the export series is launched on August 28 2013 of the year.

A training center has been established to train crews of Vietnamese submarines in Cam Ranh with the assistance of the St. Petersburg Concern Avrora Scientific and Production Association OJSC. NPO Aurora has developed and created five systems for these boats, and in particular, the automated information and control system Lama, the control system for the submarine Palladium, and the control system for maneuvering Pyrite.

The diesel submarines of the 636 project belong to the third generation of submarines. These boats have a good modernization potential, allowing to integrate on them new weapon, and in particular, the Club anti-ship missile system, significantly expanding the zone of destruction of targets. Due to the ultra-low noise in the west of the boat of this type are called "black hole".

      Well, it would also be nice to reanimate the base there.

      For now:

      Representatives of the Russian shipbuilding company Admiralty Shipyards confirmed their intention to open a representative office in the city of Nha Trang in Vietnam, not far from the Kamran Navy base, although they did not specify the exact date the representative office began. This was reported by Singapore correspondent Jane's.

      The event took place against the background of an order to build six diesel-electric submarines of project 636 of the Varshavyanka type for the Navy of the Vietnamese People’s Army. The shipyard follows the example of the Russian manufacturer of combat systems for naval ships of the Concern NPO Aurora OJSC, which in March 2013 opened its representative office in Vietnam.



      The day before, while on an official visit to Vietnam, Russian Minister of Defense Army General Sergei Shoigu made a sensational statement. Our country will help Vietnam to create a submarine fleet. It is also planned to resume the use of Vietnamese ports by Russian warships. Vietnam is stepping up purchases of Russian weapons.

        repost of my old comment on Vietnam:

        velikoros-88  August 22, 2013 10:34 | Vietnam buys 12 more Su-30MK2 fighters

        On the Vietnamese Pacific shelf there are good quality light oil fields with simple production conditions (shallow depths, and the temperature is always positive). Oil production and sale brings Vietnam about a third of foreign exchange earnings. So Vietnam has money, and he does not intend to save on the defense industry, mindful of the past. If interested, read the information about the joint Vietnamese-Russian (Soviet) company Vietsovpetro. With production volumes significantly lower than domestic oil companies, it brings much more revenues to the Russian state budget. So comments are unnecessary.

    And six submarines are just the minimum that the Black Sea Fleet needs. Why rejoice? That someone replenishes their accounts by living on such orders. For the Russian fleet, this is only a loss and no ... about capacity utilization, investment in production and salaries for shipbuilders is not an excuse. It's nothing. As Serdyuk began, so it goes on.

      Sevastopol is closed for replenishment (we do not consider tugboats for joint use with the Navy).
      SLCM submarines will be able to receive no earlier than the end of the 2014-beginning of the 2015 year. Most likely, the difficult season of 2014-15 fly by, that is, the late spring of 2015 of the year.

      Build a boat and where to base it? At the wall of the plant?

      And yes, that year they lowered the first for the Black Sea Fleet, this year they will lower the second and third, and the first will be handed over to the Navy.

        Sevastopol is closed for replenishment

        De facto, this can only be said after the official refusal of the Ukrainian side as part of a bilateral commission to update the Black Sea Fleet. A commission has not yet been commissioned for any of the ships under construction for the Black Sea Fleet; there is essentially nothing to discuss - not one of them (specifically built for the Black Sea Fleet, etc. 06363, 11356, 21631) has not yet been delivered to the fleet.
        And the glory in the media (including those with deputy mandates) may not allow the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation in Sevastopol to be updated even before carrot filling, since it doesn’t depend on them much. laughing

        tugboats for joint use with the Navy do not consider

        According to RB-389, it can be clearly seen that: firstly, there is a consensus in the update that suits both parties, and secondly that the auxiliary vessels that Ukraine inherited after the Black Sea Fleet division (which are already 35-40 years old) independently can not service the Ukrainian Navy, or not will be able in the near future. But they are not able to buy new ones in view of the unenviable financial situation in the country. (The cost of the Republic of Belarus pr.90600 is about 115 million rubles). So sharing is a double-edged sword, for the Ukrainian Navy is becoming dependent on Russia.

        All this is certainly PMSM.

    The news is good, it’s high time to return to the Vietnamese bases and not only to Kamran! Russia, oh, how you need a strong ally in Southeast Asia. And for the Black Sea, submarines need at least 8-10 pieces, and newer, with winged ones. The places are too tempting, adversaries from all sides.

    That's just it, you can base it where you can find it, it would be that. It is possible to work from the Gadzhievo along the Black Sea, transferring is easier than building.
    As for basing in Vietnam, it may be possible, but for completely different money, in addition to these submarines. With the Hindus how much they were shaking, but what's the point. The clash of selfish interests and all remained at their own. It is possible that Vietnam is not India. There is no certainty in their homegrown fools and pests ...

    We are returning to Vietnam !!! Vietnam is one of Russia's key partners in the field of military-technical cooperation. We have several very important topics with them. This is the supply of submarines, the supply of boats, aircraft weapons. This is one of the most important partners in the military-technical and a number of other related fields, in particular, we are building a nuclear power plant in Vietnam. Russia attaches great importance to ties with Vietnam, and intends to increase their level and develop in every way. Because it is a promising market for our non-commodity exports, both military and civilian. In addition, Vietnam itself is growing, its role in the region is increasing, which also creates the prospect for our long and successful trade expansion.
    We are fulfilling a contract, concluded several years ago, for one and a half billion dollars for the sale of six diesel-electric submarines to Vietnam, the training of all personnel and the creation of coastal infrastructure. That is, we agreed to create a submarine fleet in Vietnam.

    Well, congratulations to the Vietnamese fleet on a successful acquisition and wish the new HQ-183 Ho Chi Minh submarine seven feet under the keel and we will wait for new replenishment.

    The first two submarines built for Vietnam under a contract in 2009, project 06361 HQ-182 Hà Nội and HQ-183 Ho Chi Minh at Admiralty Shipyards. St. Petersburg, 04.11.2013 (c) Mihazol /
    Well, now let's remember how it all began ... Russian submarines of the 06361 project are not the first submarines of the Vietnamese Navy. The first were two small North Korean-built submarines of the Sang-O type. Both boats were purchased by Vietnam from the DPRK in 1997 in an atmosphere of great secrecy, while the payment for them, according to Vietnamese sources, was carried out by commodity deliveries of rice to the DPRK.
    The boats were based at Cam Ranh, but by now, apparently, have already been withdrawn from the Vietnamese fleet.

    We need to continue to actively build up military-technical cooperation with Vietnam, not only because he is an opponent of China, not only because of the base in Kamrani, but also because other countries are actively climbing the Vietnamese market:
    So in Poland in 2005, 480 T-72 tanks were purchased; in addition, Vietnam purchased 11 light transport aircraft M28 Skytruck (analogue of An-28).
    A rifle for the Marine Corps is being purchased in Israel: Tavor TAR-21, Galatz sniper rifle and Ramta light armored vehicles, RBY Mk.1

    In the Netherlands, two corvettes SIGMA 9814 were ordered (in the designation of the project, the number "98" means the length of the ship in meters, and "14" - the width), worth 500 million euros. The ships will be equipped with modern western weapons, and Thales Nederland will supply electronic weapons. The construction of one ship, presumably, will be carried out at the Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding (DSNS) in Vlissingen, and the second corvette, apparently, should be assembled in Vietnam at one of the Damen enterprises. The Damen Group is now playing a key role in the development of Vietnamese shipbuilding through joint ventures in six Vietnamese shipyards, including the major Damen Song Cam Shipyard under construction in Haiphong. In total, it is planned to order 4 frigates of this type.

    Exocet MM40 Block 3 anti-ship missile systems and VL MICA ship-borne anti-aircraft missile systems were ordered for these corvettes in France.
    Weapons are purchased even from a former enemy of the United States: According to Jane's Defense Weekly, the government of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam is expected to formally request the US government to acquire six base Lockheed P-3 Orion patrol aircraft from storage. Prior to that, Vietnam purchased 6 DHC-6 Twin Otter patrol aircraft from Canada
    Ukraine also participates in military-technical cooperation with Vietnam: the project of the Vietnamese artillery boat TT400TR (the lead boat - built in Vietnam HQ-272) was developed in Nikolaev under the code "Lan". Before the construction of the HQ-272 boat for the Vietnamese Navy, at the same Vietnamese enterprise Hong Ha in Haiphong, three boats were built according to the same project, but with weakened weapons (two 25-mm coaxial 2M-3M artillery mounts) for the Vietnamese coast guard ( naval police). The project was implemented in Vietnam with the mediation of Ukrinmash. Vietnamese boats are also equipped with the Kaskad radar system with the Delta-M radar.

    Built for the Vietnamese Navy, the artillery boat HQ-272 of the TT400TP project under test, 2011 year
    In 2009, a contract was signed with EADS Eurocopter for the supply of several EC225 and EC155 helicopters for the Vietnamese Navy; In the summer of 2008, a contract was signed with EADS for the supply of three C-212-400 base patrol aircraft. Vietnam has previously purchased 6 light SA-365N2 Dauphin helicopters and 8 AS-332L2 Super Puma transport helicopters and 2 helicopter patrol helicopters for the EC225 Super Puma Navy.

    The first Vietnamese C-212-400 at the factory airfield in Seville on July 27 2011 of the year

      Well, if the question is posed so that Vietnam is a counterweight to China, then why should China sell? And they sold much more. That is the insanity. It just proves once again that in Russia we have a lot of paid agents from the State Department, which if it doesn’t strangle it, it will sell anything and no matter to whom. Spraying our resources, our armed forces and fleet are deliberately weakening.
