China to Build Maintenance Centre in Thailand

03 November 2017

China is moving forward with plans to build a repair and maintenance centre in Thailand, following October’s delivery of VT4 main battle tanks. This will create a more flexible solution for the maintenance of Chinese weapons in Thailand.

The initial plan to build this facility was started by Chinese technicians and engineers sent to Thailand. Following delivery the first batch of VT4s by Norinco, a total of 437 different spare parts were despatched for initial maintenance as part of a one-year deal, as well as the need to guarantee spares, technical service and repair support for 25+ years.

The process will be to first stock spare parts for the VT4s and VN1 8x8 APCs, as well as spares for other military hardware from China in the future.

Since 1987, when the Thai military started procuring lower-cost Chinese weaponry, it has been routinely difficult to obtain spare parts and to perform maintenance. This forced some systems temporarily out of service.

To resolve these issues after Thailand ordered and imported a lot of military hardware from China in the past five years, China offered the option of establishing such a joint military facility in Thailand. A local repair and maintenance centre will benefit equipment support in the future.

Apart from setting up the centre, some technologies will be transferred too. This is a key component of Chinese arms sales to Thailand as it will eventually enhance self-reliance.

Earlier, Ukraine, who supplied BTR-3E1s and Oplot-M tanks to Thailand, also reached an agreement to build a military production facility there.

Deputy Minister of Defence Gen Udomdej Sitabutr commented, ‘Cooperation with an allied country to build a military production facility is essential because, in the future, when some military hardware from that country is out of service, equipment will need to be repaired and maintained. If that can be done by ourselves, or some key spare parts can be built ourselves, then we can save a lot of budget to solve those issues.’

Russia, Thailand Sign Contract for Two Additional Mi-17V-5 Multirole Helicopters

08 November 2017

BANGKOK (Thailand)/TASS/. Russia signed a contract with Thailand in September on the delivery of two Mil Mi-17V-5 helicopters, Deputy Director of Russia’s Federal Service for Military and Technical Cooperation Mikhail Petukhov told TASS on Tuesday.

The defense official is heading the Russian delegation at the Defense & Security 2017 arms show in Bangkok.

"A contract was signed in September 2017 on the delivery of two Mi-17V-5 helicopters in the interests of the Royal Thai Army. Further on, the talk can be about a batch of rotorcraft," Petukhov said.

Russia and Thailand also signed an inter-governmental agreement in September on military and technical cooperation, he added.

Mi-8MTV-5/Mi-17V-5 helicopters are designed to transport passengers and cargoes and can be used to conduct rescue operations and carry armament.

Russia’s state arms seller Rosoboronexport has offered Kamov Ka-52 and Mi-35M rotorcraft for a tender announced by Thailand for the purchase of attack helicopters, Petukhov said.

"The Thai side announced a tender in September for the delivery of attack helicopters. Rosoboronexport is participating in this tender with Ka-52 and Mi-35M helicopters," the defense official said.

Russia intends to participate in all of Thailand’s tenders for the purchase of military products, including naval hardware, he noted.

The Ka-52 ‘Alligator’ reconnaissance and combat helicopter is designed to destroy tanks, armored and non-armored combat vehicles, manpower, helicopters and other hostile aircraft on the frontline and in tactical depth, in any weather conditions and at any time of day or night.

The Mi-35M transport and attack helicopter is designed to destroy the armor and provide fire support for land troops, and also to transport personnel, evacuate the wounded, carry cargoes and perform other missions. The helicopter is fitted with cutting-edge precision weapons and is capable of accomplishing combat missions round the clock and in any weather conditions.

The international Asian Defense & Security 2017 arms show is taking place in Bangkok on November 6-9. The defense exhibition has been held under the patronage of the government and the Defense Ministry of Thailand since 1985, traditionally bringing together the leading producers and customers of weapon systems and military equipment for the ground forces and the navy, aircraft and air defense means.

MBDA Ready to Deliver the VL MICA to RTA Next Year

10 November 2017


MBDA VL MICA air defence system (photo : MBDA)


MBDA confirm the delivery of VL MICA to RTA next year.

Speaking at the Defense and Security 2017, Pascal Emler, regional executive export sales of MBDA confirm that the company will deliver the VL MICA to RTA next year.

"The RTA will receive two launchers - down from four - along with one command truck. The system will be working with TRML-3D/32 radar from Airbus. Right now, the system will work stand alone and we are working on the second system to RTA" said Pascal Emler.

VL MICA is designed to work with various radar because the system considers radar only as a sensor. The guidance will be the work of the missile. target data update can be done if necessary and the missile shares the configuration with the air-to-air and ground-to-air version.

"Our missile may cost more, but we do not need the illuminator radar and higher probability of kill which is better than ESSM that need to fire two missiles in the row. So, the over cost is cheaper."

He also said the RTAF still keen on Meteor despite some budget issue.

"Gripen and AMRAAM may not make different. But Gripen with Meteor will be the game changer with the Rafale and Typhoon-level of performance with the lower cost."

The RTAF currently field AIM-120C AMRAAM with the Gripen. The new AIM-120D still not certify on the aircraft.

Thailand to receive first T-50 jet trainers

Gareth Jennings - Jane's Defence Weekly

08 January 2018


The first two of up to a possible 18 KAI T-50 jet trainers have left South Korea for Thailand. Source: KAI



Deliveries of the first Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) T-50 Golden Eagle lead-in fighter trainers to Thailand began on 8 January, South Korean media reported.

Two of the first batch of four T-50TH (Thailand) aircraft have left Seoul for Bangkok as the Royal Thai Air Force (RTAF) begins the process of replacing its current fleet of Aero L-39 Albatros jet trainers.

Thailand is currently signed up for 12 T-50TH aircraft across two batches of four and eight respectively. Jane’s was told on 17 October 2017 that KAI hoped to begin talks shortly for the four fighters that are outstanding from Thailand’s original requirement of 16, though no word has yet been given as to whether this has yet happened and KAI had not responded to a request for information by the time of publication. It is possible that as many as 18 T-50THs could eventually be procured.

The commencement of deliveries to Thailand comes some months after it was announced in late September 2017 that the Republic of Korea Air Force (RoKAF) is to receive an undisclosed additional number of TA-50-variant aircraft from 2019 to add to the more than 70 it already fields.

Further to Thailand and South Korea, all of the Philippines 12 FA-50-variant aircraft have been delivered, and that six of the 24 FA-50s ordered by Iraq have now been handed over to that country. Indonesia has received all of its 16 T-50 aircraft.

Thai Army Boosts Air Defense Missile Capability

22 Januari 2018


S-1C SAM of the Royal Thai Army (photos : Sukasom Hiranphan)


The Royal Thai Army (RTA) has displayed the Chinese KS (KaiShan)-1C surface-to-air missile (SAM) system that it has acquired in the past two years. It is also going ahead this year, with the purchase of vertical launch (VL) MICA air defense missile systems from MBDA. Until now, the RTA operated only short-range anti-aircraft guns such as the Oerlikon GDF-007, and man-portable missiles such as the Thales Starstreak.

The KS-1C was developed by the China Aerospace Science and Industry Cooperation (CASIC) and is the improved version of the KS-1A. It has an increased range, to 70 km from 50 km, and engagement altitude to 27 km from 24 km. The RTA KS-1Cs are fired from twin launch-rails mounted on a Chinese-made 6x6 truck.



The Chinese SAM system is paired with the H-200 phased-array engagement radar, which has detection range of up to 120 km. At the time of development, the H-200 was China’s first phased-array air defense radar, and many likened the display and concept of operation to those of the American Patriot AN/MPQ-53 system. Chinese literature highlighted that the H-200 radar is able to direct six KS-1 missiles to intercept three to six incoming targets.

Unlike the Western-leaning Royal Thai Air Force (RTAF), the RTA has adopted various Chinese equipment, including the WS-1 302 mm multiple rocket launcher and the new VT-4 main battle tank. Perhaps the RTAF will take an interest in China’s UAV systems, which are being heavily marketed for export.


MBDA VL-MICA (photo : MBDA)

At last year’s Defence and Security Show in Bangkok, Pascal Emler, regional executive export sales for MBDA, said that his company will deliver two truck-mounted VL MICA launchers this year, along with a command truck. But the RTA decided not to buy a second pair of launchers, as originally planned in 2013. MBDA claims that the “fire-and-forget” MICA is the only one in the world capable of being fitted with either a heat-seeking homing head (VL MICA IR) or with an active radar (VL MICA RF).

The Thai MICA firing unit will be paired with an Airbus Defence & Space TRML-3D/32 mobile C-band phased-array radar that has a detection range of up to 200 km.

Two BREM-84 "Athlet" Armored Recovery and Repair Vehicles Handover to Thailand

10 April 2018


BREM-84 Athlet (all photos : Ukroboronprom)


As reported April 4, 2018 on his page on www.facebook.com President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, State Concern "Ukroboronprom" began serial production of combat vehicles "Athlete" . In fact, judging from common photo and video, we are talking about making the PE "Kharkov Morozov Machine Building Design Bureau" (KMDB) of two armored repair tracked vehicles (BREM) "Athlet" on the basis of MBT "Oplot-T" tank within the framework of the well-known contract for the delivery of "Oplot-T" The manufacture of the two the BREM Athlet for Thailand, completes, finally, this long-suffering contract.

Back to the contract number USE-18.2-356-D / K-11 worth more than $ 240 million was signed by SC Ukrspetsexport on September 1, 2011 and provided for the supply of the army of Thailand with 49 new tanks MBT Oplot-T and two armored repair- evacuation vehicles "Athlet" on their base, with a deadline for the execution of the contract by the end of 2014. Thailand was actually the starting customer for MBT Oplot tanks developed by the Kharkiv Morozov Machine Building Design Bureau, which represents the further development of the T-80U/UD family of tanks, and the Athlet ARM, developed at the same base.



The agreed schedule for the delivery of BM Oplot-T under the contract was as follows: December 2012 - five cars, August 2013 - 15 vehicles, December 2013 - 15 vehicles.

Implementation of the contract "Kharkiv SE Plant named after VA Malyshev" began in April 2012 and the enterprise faced significant difficulties in the resumption of tank production after more than a decade of interruption. Under the terms of the contract, the first five tanks were to be delivered to the customer in December 2012, then the date of delivery of the first five tanks to the Thai side was called May 2013. Actually, the first five Oplot-T tanks manufactured under this contract were demonstrated in Kharkiv only on October 15, 2013, sent to Thailand with a declared customs value of $ 4.45 million each on December 20, 2013 and delivered by sea ​​to Thailand (port Sattahip) on February 4, 2014.



The second batch of five Oplot-T tanks was manufactured by the Malyshev Plant by the beginning of 2015 and delivered to Thailand on May 31, 2015. The third batch of five Oplot-T tanks was completed by the end of 2015 through April 2016 and delivered to Thailand on May 21, 2016. The fourth batch of five Oplot-T tanks was delivered to Thailand on November 11, 2016, the fifth batch of five Oplot-T tanks was delivered to Thailand on June 12, 2017, the sixth batch of MBT Oplot-T's six tanks was was delivered to Thailand in October 2017, and the seventh batch of five tanks was delivered to Thailand on December 12, 2017.

Thus, by the beginning of 2018, Thailand received 36 MBT "Oplot-T" tanks and the remaining 13 tanks and both "Athlet" BREM will be delivered to Thailand as early as this year. The eighth of six MBT Oplot-T tanks was sent from Kharkov on December 27, 2017. On March 26, 2018 GC "Ukroboronprom" reported on the completion of the manufacture of all 49 MBT "Oplot-T" tanks for Thailand, and now announced the construction of both BREM "Athlet". It should be noted that, unlike the MBT Oplot-T tanks, the BREM Athlet, the serial manufacturer, is the KMDB itself, and not the Malyshev Plant.



BREM "Athlet" based on the T-80UD tank was developed by KMDB under the BREM-84 index ("Object 478BP") back in the 1990s, the only "demonstration model" that existed until recently was built in 1997. On November 24, 2008, this BREM was formally accepted for service by the Armed Forces of Ukraine. In 2014, the only sample built in 1997 was transferred to the faculty of military training of the National Technical University "Kharkiv Polytechnic Institute."

F-5F “Super Tigris” Prototype Roll Out Ceremony (all photos : Sompong Nondhasa, RTAF)


Air Force celebrates 40th anniversary of its F-5E/F fighter aircraft

UBON RATCHATHANI (TNA) -- The Royal Thai Air Force conducted a ceremony to mark the 40th anniversary of the service of its F-5E/F fighter aircraft and accepted one of the jets after its upgrade.

Air force commander-in-chief ACM Johm Rungswang presided over the ceremony at Wing 21. The ceremony included a Buddhist rite and the air force chief hanging garlands on the aircraft and handing souvenirs to officers working with the aircraft.

The F-5E/F aircraft had built good reputations for the air force and the country because they had been successfully deployed for many important warfare missions and the success resulted from unity among commanders, pilots and relevant officials, ADM Johm said.




One of the 14 F-5E/F aircraft of the air force was upgraded and delivered by Elbis System. The service duration of the upgraded aircraft is extended for 15 years.

The upgrade project enables F-5E/F aircraft to use long-range weapons, efficient radar and an integrated warfare information system. Originally F-5E/F aircraft are incompatible with beyond-visual-range missiles and unable to cope with modern threats. (OANA)

10'000 heures de vol pour les Gripen Thaï !




La flotte d’avions de combat Saab JAS-39 C/D Gripne de la Royal Thaï Air Force (RTAF) a atteint les 10 000 heures de vol. Le jalon a été atteint lors de l'exercice international « Pitch Black 2018 ».

Cela fait dix ans que la RTAF a passé la commande pour la première fois pour la livraison d’un premier lot de 6 chasseurs Gripen de Saab, en février 2008. Les livraisons ont commencé vers 2011 pour deux monoplaces (Gripen C) et quatre biplace (Gripen D). Ils en ont ensuite commandé 6 autres en 2010, livrés en deux phases en 2013.

Lors de l’exercice « Pitch Black », la flotte de Gripen de la RTAF a effectué divers exercices et aux côtés de : l’Inde, le Canada, la France, l’Allemagne, l’Indonésie, le Japon, la Malaisie, les Pays-Bas, la Nouvelle-Zélande, les Philippines et Singapour.

L'un des principaux objectifs de l'exercice était d'accroître la préparation au combat des forces aériennes participantes. Plus de 4’000 membres du personnel et 140 aéronefs ont participé à l'exercice.

L'exercice s'est avéré très fructueux pour les pilotes de la RTAF, car ils ont amélioré leurs connaissances et leur expérience tout en traitant de nouvelles tactiques de combat et d'armes majeures, tactiques, de combat et modernes. De plus, cela a renforcé leurs relations avec les autres pays participants.

Remplacement partiel des F-5 E/F :

La Thaïlande avait lancé le programme de remplacement partiel de ses Northrop F-5 E/F Tiger II, soit 15 machines appartenant au Squadron 701 basé à Surat Thani (Sud de la Thaïlande). Pour mémoire, la RTAF avait choisi dans les années nonante le Boeing F/A-18 « Hornet », mais le contrat fût dénoncé par les Etats-Unis, faute de moyen de paiement du pays du sourire. En effet, celui-ci avait proposé faute de liquidité de payer la moitié des « Hornet » avec de la viande de poulet !
Suite à une seconde évaluation au début des années 2000, c’est le Gripen C/D suédois qui remporta le marché.

La formation du personnel thaïlandais a commencé en 2009. Quatre pilotes et 20 techniciens ont été formés par les Forces armées suédoises (SwAF). En 2010, ils étaient de retour dans leur pays d'origine et étaient prêts à recevoir la livraison du premier lot d'avions. Par ailleurs, le premier Saab 340 AEW « Erieye » est arrivé au mois de décembre 2010 au pays.

Les pilotes de Gripen sont tous d’ancien aviateurs ayant volé sur F-16, ce choix de la RTAF a permis une transition plus rapide vers le nouvel appareil, soit quatre mois. La première partie du cours est appelée Formation de conversion (CT) et permet d'apprendre à piloter le Gripen. La formation se déroule dans des simulateurs puis à bord de Gripen D bi-places qui prépare le premier vol « solo ». Le CT est suivi par la formation de préparation au combat (CRT). Durant cette phase, les pilotes apprennent à utiliser le radar et les systèmes d'armes.

Thailand orders four more H225M helos

Gareth Jennings, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly

20 September 2018



Thailand’s order of four more H225Ms brings its total buy up to 12 helicopters. All should be in service by 2021.
Source: Airbus Helicopters



Thailand has ordered four more H225M (previously designated EC725) multirole helicopters to augment the eight already procured, Airbus Helicopters announced on 20 September.

The order comes on the back of the initial order for four helicopters in 2012 (received in 2015), two more in 2014 (received in 2016), and two in 2016 (to be received by the end of this year). These additional four helicopters are set to be handed over by 2021.

The EC725 is an 11-tonne twin-engine helicopter that can carry up to 28 people. The Royal Thai Air Force (Kongtap Agard Thai - RTAF) H225Ms are configured for the combat search-and-rescue, search-and-rescue, and troop transportation roles primarily. The introduction of the platform will enable the RTAF to retire its ageing Bell UH-1H ‘Huey’ helicopters that have been in service since 1968.
