Bangladesh plans to buy airplanes and submarines from Russia

Bangladeshi government intends to discuss with Russia the purchase of aircraft for the sea aviation and 2 diesel-electric submarines, the newspaper said MIC with reference to an interview with the Bangladeshi Information Minister Hasanula Hak Inu, which he gave to TASS correspondent.

Bangladesh plans to buy airplanes and submarines from Russia


“We need ships for naval forces and aircraft for the needs of naval aviation, since ensuring the security of our maritime borders is now a priority and we are not ready to wait any longer,” he stressed. - We are also considering the possibility of purchasing two diesel-electric submarines (diesel-electric submarines) in finished form. Russia can become a supplier of such submarines. "

According to the minister, the transaction can be accomplished both under a government agreement and the results of the tender. “If, in the course of negotiations with the Russian side, we manage to agree on prices and other details, then we are ready to take the first path,” Inu explained.

He expressed the hope that “the future of Russian-Bangladesh military technical cooperation will not only consist in the supply of finished equipment, but also be accompanied by the transfer of technology and personnel training.” “China’s traditional supplier of military products to Bangladesh was about 50% of our total imports in this area. Thus, the progress achieved in this area with Russia will allow us to reduce the dependence of the defense industry on one country, ”said Inu.

At the beginning of last year, at a meeting in Moscow with the Prime Minister of the Republic of Bangladesh, Sheikh Hasina, an agreement was reached on expanding military-technical cooperation. It was reported that Moscow will provide the government of Bangladesh $ 1 billion for the purchase of Russian weapons.

        At the current stage, modified export projects are underway for our fleet. This is the decision of the "furniture maker" - for the emergency massive rearmament of the army, navy and air force to buy what is mastered and mass-produced by the industry, even if it is inferior to the latest developments, released in 1-2 copies.

        PMSM, adding 2 "net export" submarines to the series of "modified export" submarines will not be such an overwhelming task.

        RUSSIA gives a loan for loading its enterprises, which means that there are unloaded capacities. Otherwise, these plants will simply fall apart and there will be a mass of unemployed. We build for ourselves according to the budget.

          We do not have capacities currently not loaded. The entire shipbuilding industry is loaded to the eyeballs for several years ahead! If ours decide to sell submarines, then this will be a purely political decision, with a purely political (and not only) benefit for us.

      It was reported that Moscow will provide the government of Bangladesh with $ 1 billion to purchase Russian weapons.

      It turns out we will arm them for our money? It would be nice if it were worth it (instead of frequent approvals). On the other hand, our government is not very stupid people and if they have not cut this deal, then Russia will receive its own preferences.

    Duc Bangladesh is not our enemy. Remember, Bangladesh is the former province of East Pakistan, formed in 1971 as a result of the war of the Bengal "militias" and the Indian armed forces supporting them with Pakistan. Moreover, the Pakistani troops surrendered after the hostilities. Something like our South Ossetia and Abkhazia for the Indians. Moreover, in 1972, our sailors, at the request of the government of the young state, cleared the port of Chittagong after the war. And the country is rather big, 130 million people, though the population density is under 900 people. per sq. km. So you have to be friends.

      Not further, as last night with the son compared in "Wikipedia" the size of the territory and the number of people in different countries. In terms of population, Bangladesh is in eighth place in the world with 150 million, Russia is in ninth place (146). So you really need to be friends smile

      And for this money you can, for example, provide a base for our fleet. And it’s not at all necessary to blow this on all channels. smile

      Where are the boats going to them? With such a fleet. And budget

      In December 2013, the Bangladesh government approved a contract for the acquisition in China of 2's diesel-electric submarines, 035G (Ming class) from the PLA Navy.
      The contract value is 16 billion so (about 203,3 million dollars), this amount should be allocated by the Ministry of Finance of Bangladesh in the budgets of five years - from 2013 / 2014 to 2017 / 2018 financial years. Both boats should be part of the Bangladeshi fleet in the 2019 year.
      These submarines will be the first submarines of the Bangladesh Navy. The acquisition of "several" submarines was indicated in the 2010-year development plan of the Bangladesh Armed Forces (Force Goal 20) approved in 2030. Negotiations on the acquisition of submarines were conducted by Bangladesh with several countries, including very active - with the Russian Federation, and Rosoboronexport OJSC offered Dhaka the construction of 2 new submarines of Project 636 or the acquisition of 2 submarines of Project 877 from the Federation Council. However, since 2012, there have been numerous reports that the government of Bangladesh is leaning towards acquiring submarines in the PRC, and at one time there were reports that China was offering Bangladesh to acquire 2 Russian-built submarines of project 636 from the PLA Navy. The obvious political and technical doubtfulness of this option, apparently, led in the end to the decision to buy "purely" Chinese boats of the 035G project.
      Submarines pr.035 (Ming) - the first submarines developed by the PRC and are structurally further development of Soviet submarines pr.633 (Chinese project 033). In total, from 1971 to 2003 years, for the PLA Navy, the 21 submarine, pr.035 was built. Of these, 12 boats belong to the main serial modification 035G (ES5F), built from 1989 to 1999 years. At present, the PLA of the Ming class includes the 12 submarine ave. 035G and 4 boats of the latest modification of this project - 035В.
      http://bangladesh.polpred.com/
      $ 1 billion loan allows "right away" without waiting for 2019. (Chinese submarines after receiving the amount) to acquire Russian submarines. Based on financial capabilities, apparently it will be submarine pr. 877 from the Federation Council. Plus training of crews, spare torpedoes, maybe a cruise missile, arrangement of the basing system and MTO.
      In exchange: gas or oil (found!), PMTO in Chittagon, agricultural products - tea, bananas, jute. Another is unlikely.
      IMHO.

      In 1's, gas and oil were found in Bangladesh. Concession will not be superfluous for us. Let me remind you: the Russian-Vietnamese oil company because of the socialist approach to the issue of Vietnam (well, they do not let them steal! And taxes make you pay to the state budget!) Are the most profitable in the industry! - This is a word.
      In 2's, this is a weapons market. For boats and other equipment will reach.
      B-3's, this is our military presence. Maybe PMTO we rent for ten years that way. You look and the boats will have a chance to stumble in the event of a breakdown, or the crew will go on vacation there and restock again ...
      Fourthly, you can place a couple of containers with a "surprise" at the PMTO, the range is good - 4 km will be the best!

      And what kind of aircraft are we talking about?

      It seems about the Chinese. They are cheaper than ours ...
      “As reported by the media, during a visit to Moscow by Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasin Vayed in January 2013, Russia agreed to provide the country with a $ 1 billion loan to purchase military equipment and weapons.
      Bangladesh is expected to purchase helicopters, air defense systems and equipment for the ground forces.
      A poor country like Bangladesh can buy Mi-17 transport helicopters, but it cannot afford the Mi-35, Mi-28 and Ka-52 attack helicopters, says Vasily Kashin, an expert at the Moscow Center for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies (CAST). It is possible that the country will purchase Buk, Pechora-2 self-propelled air defense systems and portable air defense systems. The purchase of Russian tanks is unlikely, but the country may acquire the BTR-80 / 82, BMP-3 and other light armored vehicles.
      At present, China holds a dominant position in the supply of military equipment to Bangladesh. Recently, a contract was signed to purchase 44 Chinese MBT-2000 tanks and three armored repair and recovery vehicles (BREM), the deal is valued at 160 million dollars. In addition, the country will purchase 16 J-7BGI fighters, as well as patrol boats, a number of anti-ship missiles.

    So the loan is then targeted, for the purchase of purely Russian weapons. I am a ram in this economy, but it seems that such a loan is fully returned to the creditor country, and even with interest. Thus, supporting our military-industrial complex and giving profit, which, in turn, can be invested in your own weapons. I repeat, I do not particularly understand this, for sure there are people with economic education on the site. Confirm or vice versa, write a refutation of the above.
