The official representative of the Zelenodolsk plant named after A. M. Gorky said during the exhibition "Innovation Day of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation", held in Kubinka near Moscow.




"The first two frigates we delivered to Vietnam in the 2012 year, two more - in the 2017, negotiations are underway to supply two more such frigates," he said. "Military Industrial Courier".

The main purpose of the frigate “Cheetah-3.9” is to search, track and combat surface, air and underwater targets, conduct escort operations, and patrol service. The ship’s displacement is approximately 2 thousand tons, the cruising range reaches 5 thousand miles. The project was developed by specialists from the Zelenodolsk Design Bureau.

    Interestingly, the Russian Navy will receive such corvettes or Vietnam is more important.

      Here's a video on the topic ... Vietnam is arming heavily, I think it's not bad, he is our long-time ally in this region!

        "Russia has only two allies - its Army and Navy." There are still countries whose interests at this stage coincide with the interests of Russia. But it is not a fact that they will coincide in the future. Examples, I think to give too much, there are plenty of them ...

          I wonder whose engines and generators are worth? Very interesting.

            But the fact that it is not Ukrainian is a fact: because of the disruption of deliveries, the deadline for "Cheetahs" for Vietnam was postponed for a year.

      Not only do we need to fight. If Vietnam will support our interests, and not at our expense. What questions may be, we are doing one thing.

        Vietnam primarily supports its interests, and secondly, those whose interests at the moment coincide with those that it supports in the first place ...-))) Now Vietnam has signed an economic agreement with the United States against China. Question: Whose interests are closer to him?

          "Whose interests are closer to him?"- the answer has already sounded -" yours. "And then more complicated:"Vietnam signed an economic agreement with the USA against China"- here the answer already needs to be calculated, unambiguity does not work. If we buy with the United States for money, then there is a greater support for our interests, then what is against China is unpleasant, and now we don’t sell, but in Vietnam there is a wonderful Kamran sea base, should we forget about it. On this base the Americans built the piers under their aircraft carriers, with the possibility of lifting (changing the height) the pier above sea level. Excuse me: do we have such in our country? That's the question, who These piers will come in. More, even theoretically, our ships have nowhere to lean in this area, I suppose the Chinese will understand this, the Americans themselves blocked their access to the ocean with a base on Okinawa. who himself was in Vietnam.

      The engines are put on them by the German MTU. In connection with the embargo on deliveries to the Russian Navy, a big question? Something like they managed to smuggle through China, but in reality, things are not really at the factory now.

      That's interesting. Vietnam is far from the richest country, and a series of 6 frigates buys + our submarines + much more. Where does the money come from? Apparently they understand that it is better to live with a “tightened girdle” than to sell for “green candy wrappers”. It is a pity that not everyone in the world, and in our country, is aware of this.

        Where is the money?

        Maybe a certain country has borrowed money to Vietnam, so that he would buy weapons from her, as such an option? wink

        Vietnam is a country - a coast, and Russia - a country - a continent. For us, the ground forces and the aerospace forces are more important.

          No, wrong. Standing in neutral waters near the FSA with the Nth number of cruise and high-speed missiles is not bad at all!

      It is unlikely that our base 22380, which will be more powerful, and most importantly, as far as I know, Ukrainian engines are installed on the Cheetahs. They are being sold to the Vietnamese; for ours, from 11356 and 22350 we are tormented now.

      already received two, they are worse than the 20380 project and they are not frigates, but corvettes. they didn’t reach the frigate with a displacement, it would be necessary at least in 2,5 times, and better in 3. Then there will be a frigate. And this one is closer to the boat than to the frigate. Who writes the articles? This is not the first time I've encountered such inaccuracies.

    And how are these different from ours? Just wondering, are we cutting off the possibilities of export designs or not?

      Medium.

      In fact, Cheetah 3.9 is a deteriorated, however redesigned Dagestan, but much improved Tatarstan.

      The flights do not order UKKS, they have enough X-35E, all the more so they buy them in large quantities with lightning.

      But the MZA has missiles, they were tested before the surrender and they seemed to be transmitted. Dagestan has a purely cannon complex.

      Plus, the flies ordered a helipad, and Dagestan and Tatarstan do not have one.

      The Russian Navy will not purchase ships of this project as insufficient by requirements. It only bought Tatarstan - for it was cheap and then there wasn’t much money (they were still building in the Union), and with great creak Dagestan, with full processing under the UKKS.

    Vietnam is friends with everyone who has sensible weapons and who can offer credit for these same weapons, except for China - they have shares for islands in the South China Sea. And as soon as they finish rearming, there we’ll see who is comrade to whom.

    Money is also needed for the construction of frigates for Russia, including from the sale of ships to friendly Vietnam.

      And at whose expense do you prefer to build ships for the Russian Federation? At the expense of taxpayers of the Russian Federation or taxpayers of Vietnam ???
      Also, this is real money in the "long" perspective from service, training, supply of spare parts, etc. !!!

    An excellent, well-developed, serial corvette for the Black Sea Fleet, but the "leadership decided" that Pr 22160 will be built for the Black Sea Fleet. 22160 is almost the same in size, a little faster and more autonomous, but there is no armament of anti-aircraft defense. It is assumed that certain "weapon modules" will be installed for a specific task, but you yourself understand that there are no modules yet, except for container "clubs", but the corvette will be armed with them in UKKS.
    In general, the latest “project” corvette with no PLO armament, against the serial spent and more balanced, but old. I think at first there will be a victory of youth over common sense, then when it turns out that "the structure is new, unfinished, difficulties have arisen", the military will get tired of waiting, spit and order the Cheetah brigade.

    I completely agree with you. It's time to move away from old stereotypes.

    Like Vietnam ordered the Dutch corvettes. What happened to this deal?
