In Vietnam Artillery Museum is currently showcasing a special photo radar reconnaissance system SNAR-10 very rare in Vietnam.

SNAR-10 is responsible for providing data on the location of the target fixed or mobile, said the impact of the enemy artillery as well as ensuring firepower to destroy.

SNAR-10 was discovered by sea targets and low flying helicopters. This complex is typically deployed near the infantry or artillery reconnaissance stations.

To determine the location and orientation of the target, SNAR-10 with integrated navigation system and topography device connected to the pulse doppler radar reconnaissance bidirectional wavelength 8 mm 1RL127 Big Fred put on the roof.

In pulse mode, Big Fred can not distinguish moving targets and fixed on a saturated field. To detect the object is moved, it must use Doppler mode.



1RL127 radar detection range of 300 meters to 50 kilometers from, with the motor vehicle can detect between 16 and 23 km.

SNAR-10 system is located on the chassis of armored caterpillar MT-LB multipurpose Vietnam taking very high gear, armor protection for the crew safety before personal weapons and artillery pieces.

The maximum operating range of the vehicle is 500 km, the maximum speed of 60 km / h on asphalt, 30 km / h on land lines and soft 6 km / h when wading.

In 2004, Russia undertook to upgrade combinations SNAR-10, SNAR-10M (1RL232-1M) with Credo-1E radar reconnaissance system and new digital electronics, signal processing help quickly and accurately than.

Slim recently appeared some information to know, Russia is asking Vietnam to upgrade radar reconnaissance system ground artillery SNAR-10 to SNAR-10M standards.

935 Fighter Jet Regiment : Night Attack Unit of the VPAF


02 Januari 2016


Night fighting is among the 935 Fighter Jet Regiment’s vital tasks. (photos : TuoiTreNews)



A Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper reporter has recently witnessed a technically and mentally demanding flight drill of the state-of-the-art Russian-made Su-30MK2 supersonic fighter jets at a regiment posted in southern Vietnam.

The Tuoi Tre reporter visited the 935 Fighter Jet Regiment in October 2015.

The regiment, operating under Division 370, which belongs to the Air Defense-Air Force, is stationed in Bien Hoa City in Dong Nai Province, some 35 kilometers from Ho Chi Minh City.
It is the first regiment in Vietnam that owns and operates an all Su-30MK2 fleet.

The Su-30MK2, dubbed “King Cobra,” is an improvement to the Su-30MKK, employing upgraded avionics and maritime strike capabilities.

The Su-30MKK is a modification of the Sukhoi Su-30, incorporating advanced technology from the Sukhoi Su-35 model.

The aircraft, developed by Sukhoi Company in 1997, is a heavy class, all-weather, long-range strike fighter, designed for dedicated use as a maritime strike aircraft as well as for air-to-air and air-to-surface deep interdiction missions.

With a rated maximum takeoff weight of 85,000 lb, the Su-30MK2 has an enhanced weapon system optimized for maritime strikes, built around the N-001VEP radar, which will target the Kh-31A ramjet supersonic anti-shipping missile, and a radar seeker-equipped variant of the Kh-59, designated the Kh-59MK2, according to ausairpower.net.




More technically exacting

Night flights are among the 935 Fighter Jet Regiment’s vital tasks.

The regiment is also the Air Force-Air Defense of Vietnam’s first unit to be entrusted with the duty.

Xuan Tuyen, former regiment chief and now deputy chief of Division 370, and Colonel Phan Xuan Tinh, the regiment’s deputy chief and chief of staff, are the country’s first-ever night sea flight instructors.

Apart from a pilot’s high expertise, a successful night airborne operation also requires seamless coordination among commanders, information officers and ground technicians.

“Night flying is considerably more demanding than any daytime routine because of stress-causing elements including darkness, cloudiness and poor vision, which can make or break pilots’ performance,” Col. Tinh said.

“It’s also harder to retain control during nocturnal flights, during which pilots are prone to illusions,” he noted.

The strenuous task is thus exclusive to only the best pilots, who usually have at least 400 flying hours and have carried out 70, 80 or even 100 daytime flights, Col. Tinh added.

Along with night flights, the 935 Fighter Jet Regiment also partakes in nocturnal bomb dropping, rocket launching and live fire exercises.

These activities were part of a two-day military event organized by the Air Force-Air Defense of Vietnam in late March 2015.



This was also the first time in 30 years that the Su-30MK2 jets had joined a night bomb-dropping drill.

The practice session saw 36 pilots maneuver Su-30MK2, Su-22M4 warplanes and Mi-8 choppers.

The outstanding completion of tactical and technical tasks achieved by the 935 Fighter Jet Regiment’s Su-30MK2 pilots was indicative of the crew’s air supremacy and flawless manipulation of the multi-purpose, cutting-edge “King Cobra” jets.

On the October night flight, the last warplane landed safely at 9:10 pm.

“A night routine usually closes at 9:30 pm or a little past 10:00 pm. Otherwise, the deafening, lengthened noise would take a toll on residents in surrounding areas,” Colonel, pilot Tran Quoc Toan said.

“I really love the romantic feeling that I take off at dusk and land against the cloak of darkness, while the whole city has lit up. On good days, the night views are even more gorgeous than those by day,” Colonel Huynh Manh Thang, the regiment’s deputy chief in charge of military training, shared.



935 Fighter Jet Regiment of Division 370

Established on October 30, 1975, Division 370 is among the country’s largest.

In December 2004, its 935 Fighter Jet Regiment was armed with the state-of-the-art Su-27 and Su-30MK2 warplanes.

Six years later, the unit had more Su-30MK2 jets added to its fleet as replacements for the Su-27.

Since 2008, the regiment has made regular patrol flights to Vietnam’s Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelago, the marine platform DK1, and the country’s southwestern border areas.

Its current missions are safeguarding the skyline, seas, border areas, islands, and key economic zones to the south of the country.

The regiment has made outstanding military accomplishments and won ample accolades over the past 40 years.

Its members also provided substantial assistance for Cambodia in establishing the neighboring country’s first-ever fighting air force regiment at Bien Hoa Airport.

Cambodia conferred the Angkor Medal, its highest honor, on the regiment in recognition of its effort. Since 2010, the regiment has trained almost 800 pilots and instructors from different air force units to fly Su-27 and Su-30MK2 fighter jets.

Mer de Chine méridionale : le Vietnam envoie ses sous-marins


Par Rédacteur en chef.
Publié le 8 janvier 2016, dernière mise à jour le 8 janvier 2016.



Le premier des nouveaux sous-marins Kilo de la marine du Vietnam a commencé ses patrouilles en Mer de Chine méridionale, face à la marine 10 fois plus puissante du géant chinois.

Le Vietnam augmente aussi l’utilisation de son port en eau profonde de Cam Ranh, stratégiquement situé, où les 6 sous-marins seront basés.

L’arrivée des sous-marins est la pièce la plus importante du renforcement militaire du Vietnam, le plus important depuis la fin de la guerre du Vietnam. Ce renforcement pourrait changer significativement l’équilibre des forces dans le baril de poudre qu’est devenu la Mer de Chine méridionale.

Inquiet face à la Chine qui revendique la presque totalité de cette mer, le Vietnam dépense des milliards $ pour constituer une flotte sous-marine, de l’artillerie côtière et des systèmes de missiles, des avions de combat et des patrouilleurs rapides, pour la plupart achetés en Russie et en Inde.

Pour Carlyle Thayer, de l’Australia’s Defence Force Academy de Canberra, « tous ces systèmes d’armes permettront au Vietnam de rendre très difficile et couteux pour la Chine de conduire des opérations maritimes dans une bande de 200 à 300 nautiques le long des côtes vietnamiennes. »

Les sous-marins classiques Kilo, de la classe Varshavyanka dans la nomenclature russe, sont conçus pour la lutte anti-sous-marine, anti-surface, les patrouilles et la reconnaissance, et pour la défense côtière et des bases navales. Ils sont considérés comme très discrets. Ils peuvent opérer dans des eaux peu profondes comme en Mer de Chine méridionale et ont été constamment améliorés depuis les années 80.

Selon des spécialistes, ils sont technologiquement plus avancés que les sous-marins d’origine russe en service dans la flotte chinoise.

Ils considèrent la base de Cam Ranh Bay comme « l’as dans la manche » du Vietnam contre les forces chinoises mieux équipées. Il a d’ailleurs déjà combattu contre la Chine en 1979. Le Vietnam a indiqué qu’il allait inviter des pays tiers, comme la Russie, les Etats-Unis et le Japon à envoyer des navires et des sous-marins pour un soutien logistique et technique.

Le port, le centre des activités navales américaines pendant la guerre du Vietnam, permet un accès facile à la Mer de Chine méridionale et, via le détroit de Malacca, à l’océan Indien.

Last Two Project 12418 Tarantul-class Corvettes for Vietnam Navy to be Launched in Spring 2016

Two Project 12418 (NATO reporting name: Tarantul V-class) guided missile craft being license-produced in Vietnam for its navy will be launched in spring 2016, a representative of Russian shipyard Vympel told journalists on Thursday.





"The last two Project 12418 guided missile boats will be launched in the spring. The fifth and sixth ships will cap the batch, and, thus, the contact will be fulfilled," the source said. He added that talks were under way on firming up an option for the licence production of four boats more. As Vympel’s representative had said previously, Vietnam agrees to order the four ships on condition of certain modifications to their onboard equipment.

Vympel in the city of Rybinsk has been making the boats’ knockdown kits and shipping them to Vietnam for assembly and has been exercising technical supervision of the process in conjunction with the boats’ designer, the Almaz Central Marine Design Bureau, a subsidiary of the United Shipbuilding Corporation.

Under the contract of 2003, Vietnam has taken delivery of two Vympel-built missile craft and is to licence-produce 10 more - six under the current contract and four more as firmed-up options. The Vympel-made boats were delivered in 2007 and 2008. The first licence-produced Project 12418 missile boat was laid down by the Ba Son Shipyard in Vietnam in 2010.

Two Vietnam-built ships carrying the Uran-E (SS-N-25 Switchblade) missile system - HQ-377 and HQ-378 - were commissioned by the Vietnamese Navy on July 20, 2014 and two more - HQ-379 and HQ-380 - on September 25, 2015.

The Project 12418 missile boat is designed to fight the enemy’s surface ships, boats and transport craft both independently and within a formation. The boat has a displacement of 510 tons, a length of 56.9 meters, a maximum speed of 40 knots and sea endurance of 2,300 miles. The Project 12418 missile boat is armed with the AK-176M 76mm artillery gun, the Uran missile system comprising 16 missiles in four launch tubes, the AK-630M 30mm antiaircraft artillery system and 12 missiles for the Igla portable antiaircraft missile system.

Vietnam Confirmed Purchasing of 20 Israeli EXTRA


25 Februari 2016


EXTRA rocket system has a range around 150km (photos : BaoDatViet)


According to a report recently published SIPRI said, Vietnam has purchased 3 systems SPYDER-SR missiles, S-125 Pechora-2T, and especially the 20 combinations EXTRA rockets.

EXTRA missile developed by Israeli defense companies Military Industries (IMI) and has been exported to foreign countries to remain anonymous, even if the Israeli army has not yet entered service this weapon system.

EXTRA has a range of around 150 km, the weight of 150 kg missile, circular error probability (CEP) of about 10 m. Meanwhile, 155 mm artillery shells by US standards is expected to be 200-300 m CEP at much more modest range.



EXTRA capable of launching from a variety of means to carry, launch tubes are assembled in clusters of 2 to 16 to release results from the ground. Cluster launch tubes can be mounted on trucks or in highly mobile battlefield fixed. EXTRA bullet to the airtight container should have a long life and low maintenance costs.

With the above advantages, EXTRA very suitable to equip the army artillery, rockets coast of Vietnam People's Navy. EXTRA can appropriately arranged on the islands are small as some floating islands of the Spratly Islands of Vietnam.

Thus, along with the system EXTRA, Vietnam Navy also have 4K51 Rubezh, Bal-E, Bastion-P and REDUT, the system will create a network of integrated coastal defense navy new Vietnam, which is a dense network of 5 levels, assuming the role of attack to different defenses.



Because according to sources from the Corporation tactical missile (KTRV) of Russia in mid-2015, Vietnam was the second country after Russia put to equip the missile defense coast Bal-E advanced .

Shore missile systems to undertake this important task is to control the seas and the Strait area; protect naval bases, protection and infrastructure targets on our shores, as well as the coast guard on the direction of the enemy can amphibious warships.

The combination of short range missile defense Bal-E is capable of effectively supporting the missile defense Bastion-P coast range that Vietnam Navy is using while the lower price. Bal-E is one of the missile defense system to maneuver coast, capable of sudden attacks and massively into the enemy ships, change the battlefield in a short time, then re ready to make a the next powerful attack.




Bal-E Mobile Coastal Missile System with Kh-35 Uran missile

Bal-E has good maneuverability, firepower and high precision, can be operational in all weather conditions, with the ability to lead a fully autonomous rocket after launch in conditions of antagonism firepower and electronic radio's keeper.

Owning missile system Bal-E coastal defense forces Vietnam can solve tactical missions-campaign with minimal cost by building a system of exploitation and repair unique missile most, by type Kh-35E missiles to equip combinations Bal-E was no stranger to the Navy in Vietnam.

Vietnam returned to the service of the old Soviet ASU-85 airborne artillery
Mar 21, 2016



Vietnamese Web resource baodatviet.vn published material that the Vietnamese People’s Army (VNA) has returned to the active service of the old Soviet 85-mm self-propelled artillery airborne ASU-85.

In May 10/2015, 168 Artillery Brigade under the Military Region conducted two rounds of water testing shot for SU-85. This is the amphibious assault guns ASU-85 road not used commonly in units Soviet paratroopers in the decade 1960-1970.

Thus, after many years of long-term archive, to date some Vietnam artillery units, including units of the military-fire gave ASU-85 self-propelled guns back staffing, training ready fight.

Amphibious assault guns ASU-85 air using PT-76 chassis, the famous swimming tank has been involved in several major campaigns, up resounding victories during the two resistance wars against the US and war border protection.

ASU-85 was redesigned rather than PT-76, it is no longer the main turrets firepower that is attached directly to the body of the tank, through which the overall height and weight reduction from the original car, special particularly suitable for the transport aircraft.

According to photos published version ASU-85 self-propelled artillery of the 168 Brigade is equipped with machine guns 12.7mm dshk-M with the park some 600 bullets, may be the most modern version of the line this cannon, NATO designation is ASU-85 M1974.

However, this version (sometimes called ASU-85M) only have the number of shells is 39 members, down slightly compared to the previous version. In the Soviet Union, ASU-85 cannon weighs 15.5 tons, fitted with cargo compartment of a variety of transport aircraft and in accordance with the ability of the hook hanging helicopter Mi-6 large as or Mi-10.

According to Mr Vladimir Seredoho, parallel to the negotiations on after-sales services are continuing negotiations on building a series of warships TT-400TP upgrade.

“The shape of the ship will be like, Vietnam partners have not decided. Before the end of 2016, we will proceed with the signing of the contract,” he said Seredoho.

TT-400TP warships patrol boats variations or TT-400 is produced by Factory Z173 (Company Hong Ha).

Mar 30, 2016


The success of Russia at the world war that Syria interested in the new weapons being tested by fire here, including Su-35 fighter. Vietnam is said to want to buy one squadron Su-35, according to the Kommersant newspaper.

Financial columnist Kommersant said 28.3 days according to sources from the technical cooperation agency – Russian military (FSMTC), the agency recently has received many requests from Asian and African cacnuoc want to buy aircraft Russia’s new fighter, and the value of these contracts far exceeds the cost of Russian money for the war in Syria.

FSMTC said in October 12.2015, the Algeria has ordered 12 fighter bomber Su-32 (export version of the Su-34), the minimum price of $ 600 million. Algeria also asked to be assigned 1 Su-35 fighters in Tamanrasset testing grounds for testing the aircraft and its equipment. Kommersant said that Algeria will buy at least 10 Su-35 and this contract at least 850-900 million.

“Indonesia, Vietnam and Pakistan are interested in Su-35. Indonesia and Vietnam want to have Su-35 to supplement the Su-30MK2 aircraft fleet was ordered earlier. Jakarta said it would purchase 10 units, Hanoi is also in talks to buy up to 1 Su-35 fleet, “the source told Kommersant from FSMTC. A common fleet to 12 aircraft.

Both contracts by Vietnam and Indonesia if the gain is worth billions of dollars per contract.

Pakistan also ordered six planes Su-35 (worth about $ 500 million).

Not to mention the type of aircraft, other Russian weapons capability expressed through war Syria also attract international customers.

That helicopter gunships Mi-28NE, transport aircraft Il-76 for Algeria, Ka-52 for Egypt, and particularly the T-90 is the Gulf countries are interested in following the event rebels Syria used the American TOW missile hit one tank T-90 of Syrian government troops without causing any harm to the increase both!

Air defense missile system S-400 long-range is also being Saudi Arabia attention.

The total value of the contract to buy new weapons, if achieved would be worth 6-7 billion dollars, so a bargain compared to the cost of 33 billion rubles ($ 480 million) that Russia pays for the war in Syria.

In summary, after 6 months of the war in Syria, Russia has adopted the tactic of “an arrow down 2 bird”. It is a medium surface combat capability training of soldiers on the battlefield, where powerful demonstration of the new weapon to attract the attention of customers, according to Kommersant quoted a defense official.

rom Russia With Love: Vietnam Gets Fighting Gepard From Moscow

A third Gepard-class 3.9 frigate built for Vietnam will be floated out at a shipbuilding plant in eastern Russia on Wednesday.





Project 1166.1 Gepard 3.9 class frigates are designed to engage surface ships, submarines and air targets, both independently and as part of a task force, as well as to perform escort and patrol tasks.
The ships have a displacement of 2,200 tons, a length of 102 meters, a maximum speed of 23 knots, a crew of 103 and a cruising range of 5,000 miles.

The frigates are armed with an Uran-E anti-ship missile system, an AK-176M 76.2-mm gun, a Palma air defense artillery system, two AK-630M 30-mm gun mounts and 533-mm torpedo tubes. It can also carry a Ka-28 or a Ka-31 Helix naval helicopter.
Together with the country's recently ordered six Kilo class submarines and Su-30MK2 naval fighter-bombers, the Gepard deal is seen as part of Vietnam's current naval modernization drive.
Vietnam purchased first two Project Gepard 3.9 frigates in 2006; the last one was delivered in March 2011. The Vietnamese Navy designated the ships Dinh Tien Hoang and Ly Thai To.
Through recent years, Vietnam has completed a number of contracts with Russia for delivery of surface ships and submarines for their Navy. In particular, in 2005 Vietnam bought twelve Project 12418 boats and began licensed production in the fall of 2010.
Vietnam purchased six Project 636 Varshavyanka diesel electric submarines from Russia in 2009 for $1.8 billion. Additionally, in April 2011
Russia agreed with Vietnam to deliver spare parts, tools and accessories for repair of naval equipment.

La flotte de Su-30MKII vietnamienne bientôt au complet !





Moscou va prochainement livrer les deux derniers avions de combat de type Sukhoi Su-30MkII au Vietnam. Cette livraison sera également la dernière pour cette version du Su-30. Dorénavant l’avionneur russe produira les versions Su-30SM, Su-34 et Su-35, soit les générations 4 ++.

Les deux derniers Su-30MKII destinés au Vietnam, font partie du troisième lot commandé en 2013. En 2009, Moscou et Hanoï avaient conclu un contrat de livraison de huit chasseurs Su-30MKII sans armement. En février 2010, un deuxième contrat avait été signé pour la livraison de 12 chasseurs Su-30MKII avec armement, estimé à près d'un milliard de dollars. Précédemment, en 1995 et 1997 le Vietnam a pris livraison de 7 Su-27SK et 5 Su-27UB.

Modernisation de la Force aérienne:

Les Forces aériennes vietnamiennes disposaient de 150 MiG-21 et 50 Su-22 vieillissants. Une soixantaine d’hélicoptères dont une trentaine de Mi-24 « Hind » épaulent des Mi-2. En parallèle à l’achat de Su-27/30, le pays s’est doté de batteries de missiles de défense contre-avions de type S-300 et prévoit un renouvellement de son parc de radars particulièrement obsolètes.

Sukhoi Su-30MKII :

La génération Su-30M est une version améliorée et totalement multi-rôles du Su-30 ayant vu le jour en 1991. Son premier prototype, développé à partir du Su-27UB, vola pour la première fois en 1992. La masse maximale au décollage a été portée à 34,5 tonnes et la motorisation est assurée par deux réacteurs AL-35F. L’avionique et les systèmes embarqués comme l’autoprotection de guerre électronique ou les communications peuvent être remplacées par des modèles occidentaux (français ou israéliens généralement). L’intégration de nacelles et d’armements occidentaux, de radars russes ou de moteurs dotés de la poussée vectorielle est également possible en option, selon les souhaits du client.

Russia's Zelenodolsk Shipyard will launch a fourth Modified Gepard (Project 11661E)-class guided-missile frigate on order for the People's Army of Vietnam (PAVN) Navy on 25 May, the country's TASS news agency reported on 17 May, citing company CEO Renat Mistakhov.

The platform's third-in-class, which is also the first anti-submarine warfare (ASW) variant, was launched in April 2016. The PAVN Navy commissioned its first two Modified Gepad-class ships, Dinh Tien Hoang (HQ 011) and Ly Thai Ho (HQ 012), in March and August 2011 respectively.

The two frigates under construction are expected to be delivered in August and September 2016 respectively, said Mistakhov.

Obama Announces Full Lifting of Vietnam Arms Embargo
Aaron Mehta, Defense News 9:30 a.m. EDT May 23, 2016



This story, which was originally published Wednesday, has been updated with confirmation that President Barack Obama has lifted the arms embargo.

WASHINGTON — The United States has fully lifted its ban on weapons sales to Vietnam, President Barack Obama announced on Monday during a visit to Hanoi, ending a decades-old embargo on the one-time enemy.

Obama was keen to separate the decision to allow arms sales to the communist nation from shared concerns over China's military build-up in the disputed South China Sea.

"The decision to lift the ban was not based on China... but on our desire to complete what has been a lengthy process moving towards normalization with Vietnam," Obama said at a joint press conference alongside his Vietnamese counterpart President Tran Dai Quang.

"At this stage, both sides have developed a level of trust and cooperation including our militaries," the US leader added.

In the weeks before Obama's trip, regional observers were tracking carefully what would happen if the president did lift the embargo.

In 2014, the Obama administration announced a partial lift of the weapons ban, with a limited focus on maritime security assets.

Such a move has support from Defense Secretary Ash Carter, who said in an April 28 hearing in front of the Senate Armed Services Committee that he backed the end of the ban. It also has support in the form of SASC chairman Sen. John McCain, who has been vocal in his desire to see more equipment flow toward Vietnam.

But news that the Obama administration was considering ending the full export ban, first reported by Foreign Policy magazine, quickly raised concerns on Capitol Hill, with the office of Sen. Bob Corker indicating a need for review and consideration before jumping on board.

Les États-Unis lèvent totalement leur embargo sur les ventes d’armes au Vietnam
Posté dans Asie-Pacifique, Diplomatie par Laurent Lagneau Le 23-05-2016





À l’exception de quelques corvettes de type Sigma acquises auprès des Pays-Bas, l’armée populaire vietnamienne est presque exclusivement équipée de matériels d’origine soviétique, puis russe. Mais peut-être que cela va changer dans les années à venir.

En effet, à l’occasion d’une visite officielle à Hanoï, ce 23 mai, le président américain, Barack Obama, a annoncé la levée totale de l’embargo sur les ventes d’armes au Vietnam, lequel avait été décrété depuis la fin de la guerre, en 1975, par Washington.

Cette évolution de la politique américaine à l’égard d’Hanoï peut s’expliquer par la situation en mer de Chine méridionale, revendiquée dans sa quasi-totalité par Pékin, malgré les prétentions de pays riverains, dont justement le Vietnam. Cela étant, M. Obama a expliqué qu’il ne fallait pas y voir un éventuel lien.

« La décision de lever l’interdiction n’est pas motivée par la question chinoise (…), mais par notre désir de compléter le long processus de normalisation que nous avons entrepris avec le Vietnam », a ains expliqué le président américain. « Chaque vente que nous faisons avec qui que ce soit est considérée comme une transaction particulière et nous examinons ce qui est approprié et ce qui ne l’est pas », a-t-il ajouté.

Cela étant, Washington avait déjà assoupli cet embargo en octobre 2014, en autorisant la vente d’équipements militaires destinés à assurer la sécurité maritime. Or, cette année-là, la Chine avait installé une plate-forme pétrolière dans des eaux revendiquées par Hanoï, ce qui donna lieu, au Vietnam, à une flambée de violences anti-chinoises.

« Il existe toujours une certaine méfiance (vis-à-vis des Américains) au sein de l’élite vietnamienne, mais l’affirmation croissante de Pékin en Mer de Chine méridionale a vraiment fait évoluer les mentalités et poussé à un rapprochement plus rapide avec les Etats-Unis », a d’ailleurs expliqué, à l’AFP, Murray Hiebert, analyste au Center for Strategic and International Studies.

Cette levée totale de l’embargo américain sur les armes est l’aboutissement de plus de 20 années de rapprochement entre Washington et Hanoï. Ce dernier a en effet été amorcé en 1994, avec le rétablissement des échanges économiques et, un an plus tard, des relations diplomatiques entre les deux pays.

Outre la question de l’embargo sur les armes, les États-Unis et le Vietnam ont également opéré un (timide) rapprochement sur le plan militaire. Ainsi, en 2011, Washington et Hanoï signèrent un accord de coopération entre les servces de santé de l’US Navy et de l’armée vietnamienne. Et leurs forces navales menèrent conjointement des exercices de sauvetage en mer à Da Nang, où des navires américains font régulièrement escale.

Enfin, il y a la question de la base de Cam Ranh Bay. Construite pour les besoins de la marine française puis utilisée par l’US Air Force, cette emprise fut ensuite occupée par les Soviétiques qui y installèrent une station d’écoutes ainsi que des navires et des avions de combat. Reprise par la Russie, elle fut libérée en 2002.

En raison de sa situation géographique – près de l’île de Hainan, là où sont basés les sous-marins chinois -, les États-Unis souhaiteraient y disposer de quelques facilités. Alors secrétaire à la Défense, Leon Panetta s’y était d’ailleurs rendu en 2012. Mais, pour le moment, la base de Cam Ranh Bay sert de point d’appui aux bombardiers russes.

Vietnam will buy at least two early-warning aircraft C-295 AEW&C to enhance the ability to control the South China Sea airspace.

World media simultaneously reported that Vietnam will buy at least 2 aircraft early warning and control air C-295 AEW&C to enhance the ability to control airspace East Sea and provide information reconnaissance, early warning control service of the sky, ready to fight.

This is not without basis when multiple signals recently that Vietnam will likely favor buying the aircraft.

C-295 AEW&C necessary for Vietnam

Military experts said that the C-295 AEW&C is now very necessary for Vietnam.

Accordingly, Vietnam Army was initially formed diverse combat capability with modern weapons such as the Su-30MK2 aircraft, high-speed vessels Molniya rocket, rocket ship Gepard 3.9 Guardians, submarine Kilo 636, missile shore Bastion-P.

However, we still lack a means of linking the modern weapon systems as well as an extended arm to operate, it's early warning aircraft.

The early warning aircraft act in coordination with aircraft, warships help remote target detection, homing missiles, expanding the range of weapons combat. Besides early warning aircraft are also intermediate link, as well as help coordinate the activities of different weapons.

Also according to analysts, this aircraft uses the chassis of the transport aircraft C-295 should help to reduce maintenance costs as well as trained pilots, mechanics.

ELTA radar could be linked to the arms of the Russian system, which Vietnam is owned by Israel have a lot of experience in improving weapons as well as providing radar early warning aircraft to India (the country use Russian aircraft system), C-295 AEW&C is considered the optimal solution for the needs of Vietnam.

Many positive signs

In particular, local and international media also published photographs delegations visiting Vietnam Military C-295 aircraft AEW&C.

This is considered a good signal to accelerate the process of negotiation and transfer between Vietnam and the defense industrial company Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), Israel.

In a statement to the media in February month 6/2014, Mr. Antonio Rodríguez Barberan, Director of Airbus DS (subsidiary of Airbus Group European aviation) officially revealed, Ecuador and Vietnam is two of the many new customers have ordered 3 transport aircraft C-295 Airbus DS for each country.

Meanwhile, Russia's Independent newspaper, said that the modernization requires the Air Force in the near future, Vietnam will buy at least two aircraft airborne early warning, in which CASA C-295 is one of the leading candidate.

Vietnam May Buy F-18 Fighter Jets, Littoral Combat Ships From US



Littoral Combat Ships and F-18 Super-Hornet jets will probably top Vietnam’s shopping list for US-made weapons now that President Barack Obama has lifted Washington’s 50-year-old arms embargo on Hanoi, former US diplomat Jim Jatras told Sputnik.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Obama announced in Hanoi on Monday the lifting of the US embargo on Vietnam during his three-day visit.

Among the systems Hanoi reportedly is interested in are Lockheed Martin’s F-16 jets, Boeing’s F/A-18 Super Hornet jets, competing littoral combat ship designs from Lockheed Martin and General Dynamics, and precision-guidance munitions from Raytheon and Boeing," Jatras said on Tuesday.
Jatras dismissed Obama’s assurance on Monday that his decision to lift the arms embargo was not based on China or any other considerations as unworthy of serious consideration.
"News reports indicate that Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon and General Dynamics are already lining up, with some major announcements expected before the end of this year," Jatras, a former foreign policy adviser to Republican members of the US Senate, noted.
However, while such arms sales might prove profitable for major US defense contractors, they would also propel the United States further down the road toward a potential confrontation with China, Jatras warned.
"President Obama’s decision to lift bans to weapons sales to Vietnam is another step along the road to a major confrontation between the United States and China."

But a budding US-Vietnam axis does not directly threaten Russia in its own neighborhood: It is likely something Moscow can find a way to adjust to."
Also, unlike the United States, Russia had proven capable of seeing other countries’ relationships with third parties in other than simple binary terms, Jatras concluded.

Vietnam May Request F-16s, P-3 Orions From US

Citation :
TAIPEI, Taiwan — With the lifting of the US arms embargo to Vietnam, a US defense industry source indicates Hanoi is seeking to improve its air defense and maritime security capabilities with the procurement of F-16 fighter aircraft from the US Pentagon’s excess defense articles (EDA) program and refurbished P-3C Orion maritime patrol aircraft, armed with torpedoes.


The source also said Vietnam could seek US-made UAVs for maritime intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions.


Torpedoes were banned under the embargo, but now the Vietnamese want the same P-3 program the US sold to Taiwan, the source said.

On the F-16 EDA, they want the same deal the Obama administration gave Indonesia.
