Thailand confirms receipt of new Chinese RA3 anti-artillery radar
Aug 9, 2016




The Thailand Ministry of Defence has confirmed that it is receiving new RA3 Artillery Locating and Fire Correction Radar, developed by China North Industries Corporation (officially abbreviated as Norinco).

The new RA3 anti-artillery radar by Norinco was spotted during official visit at Artillery Brigade Camp in Mueang Lopburi District.

The Norinco RA3 Radar is a Chinese active electronically scanned array counter-battery radar designed to locate hostile artillery, rocket and ground-to-ground missile launchers immediately after firing, and to support friendly artillery by guiding counter-battery fire.

RA3 radar can also be applied in adjusting firing of friendly weapons or rockets. With a slight modification to software parameters, the radar can also be used to detect and track low flying targets such as light aircraft, helicopters and RPVs.

In addition, it is equipped with an optical infrared system and sound measuring systems that enable Chinese troops to discover an enemy’s stealth attack.

RA3 systems have been mounted on a Volvo FM 400 chassis.

Premiers F-16 thaï modernisés !





La Royal Thaï Air Force (RTAF) a réceptionné ses quatre premiers Lockheed-Martin F-16 multirôles modernisés. L'exercice 'Pitch Black' 2016, un exercice de combat aérien multilatéral organisé par la Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) à Darwin,a été l’occasion de testé les « Fighting Falcon » améliorés de la RTAF.

Si les performances de base de l'avion sont restées inchangées, les améliorations du radar et de l’avionique permettent d’accélérer les capacités de détections et de la vision de la menace. Par ailleurs, l’intégration du missile air-air Diehl BGT Défense IRIS-T (Infrared System-Tail Imaging commande) et doté d’une capacité vectorielle permet dorénavant d'intercepter des cibles sur une plage de 25 km à une vitesse maximale de Mach 3. La RTAF a décidé d’utiliser sur l’ensemble de sa flotte de F-16 le nouveau missile qui équipait déjà les Gripen C/D.

Modernisation des F-16 :

Les F-16 A/B Block 15 sont en service en Thaïlande depuis 1987, au nombre de 55 appareils. La modernisation prévoit de porter les appareils au standard Block 55.

Northrop-Grumman a reçu un contrat pour la modernisation avec un nouveau radar, soit l’APG-38(V) 9 en remplacement de l’APG-66. Ce nouveau radar bien que doté d’une antenne classique à balayage mécanique offre 33% de capacité de détection en plus que l’ancienne version en mode air-air et air-sol. Il dispose d’un mode d’ouverture synthétique et permet une cartographie plus efficace. Ce nouveau radar est également plus léger et dispose d’une meilleure capacité de refroidissement. Les coûts de maintenance sont également plus faibles à hauteur de 45%.

Autres améliorations, les F-16 thaï sont doté d’un nouvel interrogateur IFF AN/APX-113 de BAe Systems avec un nouveau Transpondeur. La protection des appareils n’a pas été oubliée, ils seront doté du distributeur de leurres AN/ALE-47 ainsi que du système de gestion de guerre électronique AN/ALQ-213 de Terma System. Sans oublier l’arrivée du missile Diehl BGT Défense IRIS-T.

Thailand's first M58 patrol boat completes sea trials in preparation for delivery

Ridzwan Rahmat, Singapore - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
26 August 2016


Samutprakarn-based shipbuilder Marsun has completed a series of sea trials on the country's first M58 patrol boat Laemsing (561) in preparation for delivery to the Royal Thai Navy (RTN), the company confirmed with IHS Jane's on 26 August.

The trials were conducted in the Gulf of Thailand from mid-August and included maximum speed tests, turning radius verifications, crash stop tests, and an endurance validation said the company.

Laemsing , which is the largest patrol vessel to be built by Marsun to date, was launched in August 2015 at the RTN-owned Thonburi Naval Dockyard in Bangkok.

The vessel has an overall length of 58 m, an overall beam of 9.3 m, and a hull draught of 2.5 m. Powered by three Caterpillar 3516C diesel engines, the 520-tonne platform can attain a top speed of 28 k, and a standard range of 2,500 n miles at 15 kt.

Defensive capability is provided for by one 76/62 mm Oto Melara main gun, one stern-facing 30 mm cannon, and two 12.7 mm machine guns.

Laemsing is scheduled for delivery to the RTN later this year. The vessel is expected to take on search-and-rescue, fishing areas enforcement, and other constabulary duties once in service.

18 nations participate in ASEAN Exercise 16-3
Read news from Defence Blog at Flipboard.com | Subscribe to the newsletter from Defence Blog





Areas of the world riddled with natural disasters and cursed by the secondary effects of mother nature’s wrath demand a responsive force that thinks, trains and plans ahead.

An exercise bringing together those very forces from 18 nations’ military and government organizations kicked off Sept. 5, 2016 at 14th Military Circle, Chonburi Province, Thailand. ASEAN Exercise 16-3 commenced with a fitting demonstration of an earthquake-induced collapsed building Search and Rescue operation.

Helicopters from Japan, Russia, Singapore and Thailand roared toward the airfield, dispatching fast-rope rescue teams and airlifting casualties. Meanwhile, teams on the ground moved casualties from the “hot zone,” a simulated collapsing building, to the “warm zone,” the immediate safety of an open field, and triaged according to casualty condition.

Teams from the Indian Army, Japan Ground Self-Defense Force and Royal Thai Army moved casualties secured on backboards swiftly to the pickup zone or field hospital. It was a grand display of pre-planned, coordinated and rehearsed disaster response, reinforcing the pay-off of the very familiarity and training this exercise will focus on.

“This exercise is intended to foster cooperation and to share experience, information and skills among military medics of the ASEAN member states and plus countries, while fostering capabilities of military units in the region through joint humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operations,” said General Prawit Wongsuwon, Kingdom of Thailand Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense, during the opening ceremony.

AEx 16-3 is an opportunity for different nations to apply and hone common standard operating procedures and diversify each other’s capabilities for the inevitable calamities of the volatile Indo-Asia-Pacific.

A U.S. contingent of approximately 25 personnel from U.S. Pacific Command; U.S. Army Pacific; U.S. Marine Corps Forces, Pacific and Pacific Air Forces will work alongside the other nations in both the command post and field training exercises conducting medical planning, air medical evacuation, military medicine and chemical/ biological/ radiological/ nuclear defense.

Approximately 2,000 personnel are participating in the exercise from the 10 ASEAN member states Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam and “plus” countries Australia, China, India, Japan, New Zealand, South Korea and Russia.

“This is considered an important milestone of defense cooperation,” Wongsuwon lauded the ASEAN Defense Ministers Meeting Plus program, which, “which helps maintain peace, stability and security in the region.”

Humbling reminders of the significance of combined joint disaster response training come in the form of approximately 100 natural disasters on average each year in the Indo-Asia-Pacific. Sharing and honing real-world, on the ground, tactical and operational response capabilities facilitates effective, efficient response in a merciless environment.

New documents published by the budget bureau show that the 2018 defence budget amounts to 7.7% of total government spending in the year.

The budget was approved by the National Assembly on 8 June and will come into effect in October 2017.

A breakdown of the new defence budget was not announced but Jane’s understands that it features an increase in funding for operations, which will be directed to tackling long-running insurgency in the south of the country.

Safran Helicopter Engines has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Thai Aviation Industries (TAI) during International Paris Air Show to support helicopter engines operated by Royal Thai Armed Forces.

Royal Tai Armed Forces are operating Makila-powered H225M and Arriel-powered fleet of H125M, H145M, AS365N3+ and H155 in operation within the Royal Thai Air Force, Army, Navy, Police and Survey Department.

This MOU marks a new milestone between Safran and TAI after the signature earlier this year of a Global Support Package (GSP) to support Makila 2A1 engines operated by the Royal Thai Air Force.

Safran aims to deliver world-class services to guarantee engine availability; thus demonstrating that the GSP model is particularly well-suited to supporting the engine fleets of modern air forces.

This long-term agreement will be executed through TAI, the main aircraft repair and maintenance service provider in Thailand for the Royal Tai Armed Forces and Police. TAI, in partnership with Safran, will provide helicopter engine line maintenance, depot repair, inventory management and technical support expertise to ensure availability of the Safran Helicopter Engines' fleet in operation.

The Safran GSP contract optimizes turboshaft availability and enables military and parapublic operators to focus on their core activities. It guarantees availability at a fixed price per engine flying hour and provides the customer with high levels of autonomy and budget control.

Safran Helicopter Engines supports its 243 customers in Southeast Asia and Indian subcontinent through its Singapore-based subsidiary Safran Helicopter Engines Asia.

En désespoir, la Thaïlande va prolonger 14 F-5 !




Bangkok, le gouvernement thaïlandais a dégagé un projet visant prolonger 14 avions de combat Northrop F-5E « Tiger II » de Royal Thai Air Force (RTAF) pour un montant estimé à 96 millions de dollars américains, faute de mieux.

Selon le programme la mise à niveau devrait être effectuée par Thai Aviation Industries (TAI), une société appartenant à l'État, et comprendra l'acquisition de systèmes acquis auprès d'entreprises israéliennes telles que Rafael Advanced Defense Systems et Elbit Systems. Ce projet qui concerne 14 avions se décline de la manière suivante : 4 appareils seront complètement modernisés, tandis que les 10 autres seront soumis à des travaux de modernisation axés sur le remplacement du système radar de l'avion non encore modernisé.

Modernisation des F-5 en Thaïlande :

La Thaïlande possède une flotte de 32 avions de combat Northrop F-5 E/F « Tiger II » acquis à la fin des années 1970. En 1988, une première mise à jour à conduit l’installation d’un nouveau HUD/WAC (Head-Up Display / Weapon Aiming Computer) GEC Marconi, système de sonde AN/ALE-40 et un système d’alerte radar AN/ALR-46 RWR (Radar Warning Receiver).

En 2002, une seconde mise à jour est confiée à la société israélienne Elbit qui un système de viseur de casque DASH II et un écran MFD (affichage multifonction) ainsi que des commandes de type : HOTAS (Hands On Throttle-and-Stick). En matière d’armement le sF-5 thaïlandais ont reçu le missile israélien Rafael Python-3.

En 2015, la troisième mise à ne concernait que 15 appareils devant permettre de patienter avant l’arrivée des premiers Saab Gripen C/D et la modernisation de la flotte de F-16. Les appareils subirent une remise à niveau structurelle et l’installation du radar Elta EL / M-2032 israélien des missiles air-air Python-5 et Derby. Le viseur de casque DASH a été porté au standard IV.

Une amélioration qui ne satisfait pas :

Cette nouvelle amélioration doit permettre à la RTAF de tenir en attendant mieux. D’une part ces 14 appareils vont venir remplacer 4 appareils qui sont hors service et permettre de soulager la dotation en F-5 améliorés qui doit encore tenir bon jusqu’à la commande des troisième et quatrième tranches de JAS-39 Gripen C/D qui se font attendre faute de moyens financiers. Rappelons que la demande pour une troisième tranche avait été transmise par la RTAF au gouvernement Thaï en 2015 déjà, et devait être budgétisée l’année suivante.

Pour la RTAF, cette solution « low cost » n’est qu’un emplâtre sur une jambe de bois, car bien que modernisés, les F-5 ne font plus le poids, vis-à-vis des nouveaux avions de combat, dont s’équipe par exemple la Chine.
