Vietnam wants more "bastions"

Vietnam wants more "bastions"Vietnam is negotiating with Russia to purchase additional K-300P Bastion-P PBRK, according to Jane's Defense Weekly, citing the Vietnamese news agency. It is expected that the unnamed number of the Bastion-P complexes, which will be shipped to Vietnam in 2014 g, will be acquired through a Russian loan.


Hanoi ordered an unknown number of Bastion-P complexes in 2005, deliveries began in 2009, the publication says. Bastion-P was developed by the Russian NPO Mashinostroenia, the missile is produced by the Strela PO. The Belarusian Tekhnosoyuzproekt together with NPO Mashinostroeniya is responsible for the development and production of mobile launchers and transport-charging machines.

According to Jane's, the latest Vietnamese order of the Bastion-P systems is the most recent purchase of systems for the protection of its marine resources by this country and the most recent contract with Russia.

Procurement for the People's Naval Forces of Vietnam mainly concerns Russian-made equipment and includes six diesel-electric Kilo class subframes (636 Ave.), the first of which should be delivered in 2015-16, additional high-speed patrol boats of Svetlyak class (1041.2 project) and two Cheetah class frigates (11661 project), the second of which was received by Vietnam at the end of July 2011.

In addition, in the 2009, the People’s Navy of Vietnam ordered eight Su-30MK2 fighters in Russia, and in May 2010 ordered six Canadian-produced amphibious aircraft DHC-6 Twin Otter 400 series. The Vietnamese Maritime Police, the Coast Guard, which is part of the Navy, purchased three light C-212-400 transport aircraft from the Airbus Military concern, the first of which was delivered in July.

After the Vietnam National Assembly 13 session in early August, Defense Minister General Fung Quang Thanh indicated that this military modernization is seen as a priority in light of the government’s commitment to safeguard its interests in the South China Sea, a region where Vietnam has great resources, especially oil and gas. , and where China is increasing its military potential by building a submarine base on Hainan Island.

Relations between the two countries are heating up even more because of disputes over the ownership of the Paracel Islands in the South China Sea and the demarcation of the sea borders at the entrance to the Gulf of Tonkin.

General Thanh stated: “We have identified the navy, maritime police and border guard services as key forces to protect our sovereignty and maritime security [in the South China Sea]. We must protect territorial sovereignty ... [and] the Vietnamese fleet should have good relations with neighboring countries in order to jointly maintain security at sea. "

    It is necessary to quickly transfer the "Bastions" of Syria, the more the contract was signed in 2007. The Syrians can cover them with "Carapace" (36 pcs. Have already received). So, whatever you say, Syria with a probability of 70-80% may be the next after Libya. NATO finds the cause of the attacks quickly and "beautifully." At the same time, in the event of a military conflict, there will be a worthy test for the "Shell", "Bastion" received by Syria "Pechory2m", Buka m1-2. "And in the end I want to see at least once a sinking NATO ship or a falling and blazing fighter.

    In general, the region is already so stuffed with weapons that the Middle East no longer seems a powder keg. Despite the fact that several players possess nuclear weapons.

      And the United States acts as a wick going to the powder keg.

        I think in the USA they have not forgotten how they rubbed their ass there! If ours are not fools then and again, this time they will rub their nose! It's time to tie with boorish habits. The truth is there problems can be stronger, the neighbor there is too serious

    The range of these bastions, if I'm not mistaken, is 300 km. Tamahawks hit 800. Nothing left of the bastions

      These are different types of missiles - tomahawks against ground targets whose coordinates are static and determined by JP. Their Russian counterparts are no worse and even better

      The bastions are Onyxes (the Brahmos are almost the same) - anti-ship - for targets with an indefinite non-static position. There are no pendos analogs yet

      If you move from place to place, then the tomahawks will not be able to hit - and the Onyx will not let the ships go closer than 300 km - this is actually an anti-landing weapon

      True, the problem remains that pendos ships will be able to hit the coast from a long distance anyway - but this is no longer a task for the bastions - this requires a fleet - or how China is trying to make a 2-3 km ballistic missile with a guided warhead against aircraft carriers . A good solution is our SSBNs with basalts (granites) for 000-600 km - but we need to maintain guidance satellites in order for this

        Well, they seem to have Harpoons, with their own shortcomings, but it’s completely working horseradish.

          Yes, a good rocket - but subsonic. Pendosy do not spend extra money - there is enough subsonic for all Libyans. And the USSR had to prepare for defense against a powerful enemy and, accordingly, invested in supersonic missiles having a good chance of passing through the air defense of pendos ships

          It is clear that if they want pendosy and supersonic rivet. But why should they spend extra money if Russia is on its side — instead of building the Union — it finds out who offended whom and who we have bad inside — today Belarusians and Lukashenko, yesterday an article about the Kyrgyz — tomorrow they will show something to the Ukrainians again — well, the Caucasus this is generally a "downhole theme" - probably more than a yard of dollars pendos spent on it to split the peoples of the Union

    How many of our Marines died in the conflict between the Chinese and the Vietnamese in the 80th year. And all is gone.
