China increases arms exports

China increases arms exports

The sales of weapons and military equipment (military hardware) manufactured in China to the countries of Southeast Asia (SEA) is increasing.


This conclusion was made by experts of the magazine “Kanva Acne Defense”, which is coming out in Hong Kong.

The PRC uses economic relations with the countries of Southeast Asia and Turkey as the main lever for promoting its military products (IDPs) to the markets of these states. After the construction of the high-speed railway link connecting Yunnan Province with Thailand and Malaysia, these countries are likely to be greatly interested in developing trade with China. According to experts, these are the reasons underlying the export of military equipment from China to the Southeast Asian region.

Over the past 15 years, deliveries of Chinese drug products to Myanmar, Malaysia and Thailand have experienced both an increase in volumes and a decrease in them. Some market segments for the Chinese KPV have significantly narrowed or disappeared completely. In particular, the volume of the base weapons cluster for the ground forces, the Navy and the Air Force decreased, while the volume of the multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) segment and various missile weapons increased significantly. In this regard, according to the experts of Kanva Emergency Defense, Chinese products have, in the main, a price superiority in some aspects over the DPR of other competing countries.

10 years ago, Myanmar and Thailand widely used land equipment, in particular, the main combat Tanks (MBT) and armored fighting vehicles (BBM) Chinese-made. Currently, Thailand has completely abandoned tanks and armored combat vehicles manufactured by the PRC, replacing them with Ukrainian equipment. This clearly demonstrates that the Thai ground forces and Navy realized that cheap weapons do not always function effectively. The Thai ground forces also have a significant number of Chinese-made MBT T-85s, but due to the lack of spare parts, the number of equipment failures of these tanks remains at a high level. According to experts, it is impossible to decommission this equipment at a time, as its number is still significant. The operational experience of the Chinese T-85 and T-69-2 tanks had a significant impact on the supply of armored vehicles manufactured by China to the SEA region.

One of the key and most relevant aspects is the provision of logistic and after-sales service. According to experts of KanvaAtion Defense, who visited the T-69-2 tank factory and other Chinese armored vehicles, the most serious problem is the lack of a uniform army standardization of spare parts produced by China and the lack of an integrated logistics system for equipment.

Over the past three years, military-technical cooperation between China and Myanmar has declined substantially and all major supplies of military equipment have been stopped, as deliveries of American, European and Ukrainian military equipment began to this Asian country.

Armament Chinese development, which is produced in Pakistan, also exported to several countries. The list of these weapons includes, in particular, the Anza Mc2 / Qew-Double-U-1 (ANZA Mk2 / QW-1) anti-aircraft missile systems (MANPADS) (ANZA Mk8 / QW-8) and anti-tank missile system (ATGM) (HJ-2). Earlier it was reported that during the firing range "Anza Mc1 / Kew-Double-U-2013", which were carried out by the Malaysian land army in October XNUMX, the targets were not hit.

At the same time, the export of Chinese MANPADS to the countries of Southeast Asia increased significantly. Indonesia acquired the Q-Double-U-3 (QW-3), the Thai Navy received the Q-Double-U-18 (QW-18). Myanmar also probably acquired Chinese MANPADS - presumably Eych-Wai-6 (HY-6). At the same time, according to experts, the Thai market for Chinese MANPADS is rather limited. Thailand purchased only a relatively small batch of Qew-Double-U-18 for the Navy, preferring to buy the Russian Igla MANPADS to replace the earlier version of Eych-Wai-5 (HY-5).

According to a Thai source, the probability of hitting a target with an anti-aircraft guided missile (SAM) from the Eych-Wai-5 MANPADS is about 0,5. At the same time, during launches, a high percentage of failures and missiles stuck in the launch canister were observed, which created a number of serious problems.

      Gagarin .... FOLLOWING ONE WILL BE GUYS.

      Yes! Here it is western logic:
      - The Communist USSR is the enemy No. 1 for the West. (Contradiction of political systems)
      - Communist China is a "gin from a bottle", they don't know how to behave with it.
      He tied their economies like an octopus. Today they showed how Obama’s clown is Oland,
      wagged his tail in front of the Chinese leader. With the naked eye you can see that for 20ml.
      upcoming contracts with China, Oland is ready to lick it, or, substitute it.
      Type: we are not proud when it comes to dough, there is nothing to do with ideology. We
      we don’t remember at all that there was some kind of mass shooting of students at a rally.
      You have everything with human rights and democracy O. KEY. And in general, you don’t
      Putin’s rebellious regime ?! We are your friends on the board! GIVE, GIVE-CHINA!

        Ascort, extremely aptly noticed. China and India (but China comes first) are Russia's main rivals. Far from America, as this portal often says

      Well, the President of the PRC said, everything that has been copied is considered to be Chinese innovations.

    People are magnetically drawn to the bazaars,
    And after the purchase - a noisy feast:
    The Chinese do not take their goods,
    Therefore, they threw the world.

    Bullshit news, put a minus one but big. At least for the replication of Kalash without a license, well, a whole list of other weapons and equipment. Although it may not be right - their TTs are disposable and this is a plus.

      At first, China will shuffle Asia, then the island states of the Pacific Ocean! And only then it will collide with the United States. So, we will have to put the Yusovites in place !!!

    China follows its own path, and most importantly, the beaten path. Copies, learns, excels. This is the tactic. And you don't have to drive that Chinese is shit. The same iPhone or some other "made in china" technique ... If this is not a yard technique, then it is of very high quality. At the expense of products from the "gateway", yes, I agree, almost for nothing, but sometimes the quality does not even reach the counter. But here we should not blame China, but ourselves, "not all that glitters is gold." But.

    China is our most "terrible" ally. Because it does the same thing, but CHEAPER! Comrade “Cossacks”, who do you think the profit from the generic “Kalashnikov box” went to? And what steel alloys went to the Chinese Type-47 assault rifle? Comrade "Luzhichanin", "traditional Chinese quality" is a very high quality. In China, there are state factories and there are "cooperatives" (as we have during "perestroika"). It is the cooperatives that have tainted themselves with "traditional" Chineseism in our country, wrapping the frank g in a bright wrapper in the 90s ... And, finally, Comrade. "alex47russ": that's right, China is as huge a country with a huge potential as Russia, which is growing ...
    hi I believe your opinions very comprehensively show that we need to work very closely with them. Then the American hegemony will become a thing of the past, leaving behind only the exhaust and the unpleasant "aftertaste". The Chinese should become our partners, not "imitators". (All the same, no one will sue them at the Patent Office)

    If the Chinese will tighten the quality. and work on infrastructure, then this market will be theirs!

      If the Chinese pull up quality

      Hardly able. They can copy, and coolly, not without reason that Norinko AK-47 is overbearing in the markets both Hungarians, Slovaks, and Serbs (especially now). But China does not have quality and will not have it - almost all the materials are imported, I need resources to saturate the market, either Russia’s resources or technology, like America’s or European Armory’s enterprises

    2045 year. World media say: China has tightened quality and infrastructure, developed technology and new materials. From an overabundance of fakes in the world market an absurd situation is created - China begins to fake China! winked

    They said a hundred times not to sell the latest developments to China and to close access to technology. And now we twist our own eggs, why did China suddenly become so smart? you can’t be such jokes

    what is happening in China does not depend on us and our technologies - they just made a technological leap after a 30 year gap and flaws are inevitable, the means are not important - the result is important (like Machiavelli) we are slowing down a bit ...
