VNcitizen, you can send me a private message with your email. Thus, you will be able to send me the Vietnamese Air Force pics you have and I will have a great pleasure in sending my latest article to you. Do you agree?

Thank you again in advance...

Or, alternatively, you could uploading them to a file sharing website and then tell me the password to the pics via a private message. What do you prefer? I need your response as soon as you can, ok?

Vietnam upgraded Pechora-2M Air defence system

Vietnam sign contract with Tetraedr upgrade package over 30 combinations of the S-125 air defense missile "Pechora-M" to the standard S-125-2TM Pechora-2TM.

Tetraedr development is the combination medium-range air defense missiles S-125-2TM.Tetraedr was founded April 26, 2001 in the capital, Minsk, Republic of Belarus.

S-125-2TM Pechora-2TM will be equipped with at least 10 air defense missile regiments (the 8th regiment using Pechora-2M includes regiment 213, 250, 257, 274, 276, 282, 284 and regiment 285).

Cool

We aren't weak! We are sure outnumbered but still very deadly! We only bought things that can deactivated our enemy at once (Ex: china have aircrafr carrier, we have kilo sub and Su30 that can sink it in no time, either it will be supported or not ; they have type99 tanks but we have modified-penetrating PRG and Javejins) so think again

Mate, you're responding to posts made years ago, and as much as I understand the desire to defend one's country from perceived insults, this is a forum for detailed military discussion, not chest-thumping about what your military is going to do if someone attacks or invades. Please read the forum rules and think about it - you don't need to get on here and start wailing about sinking aircraft carriers. Keep it civilised. And when a post is years old, there's no need to respond to it at all.

Thanks mate.

P3 Orion for Vietnam

In the last few week there were news over on many sites that Vietnam would be interested in some refurbished P3 Orions - albeit in a MPA configuration from the US.

LAAD Defence and Security 2013: US mulls P-3 MPA sale to Vietnam

Most of the discussion resolves around the "love triangle" VN-USA-PRC. Naturally the embittered US vet does not miss the discussion and throws in his rant + the ex-Saigon Regime official/Human rights activist (residing in Orange County/California) also throws in his babbling.

In my eye those discussion miss the most crucial point: the actual needs & options of the VPAF/VPN.

The VPAF operates the largest Antonov-26 fleet. Those planes were delivered by the SU in the 70s/80s. By the end of this decade they need to be replaced.
The VPAF has stated in the last few years they are very interested in buying AEW&C-planes.
Problem: Russia is curently occupied with refurbishing its' A-50 AEW&C fleet and has put resources in developing the A-100.
India got its' hands full with the new inducted systems and has no spare capacity for coop. Honestly the Vietnamese are not impressed with Indian Stretchable Time in the other programs. (Remember the Indian offer for ToT of the Prithvi SRBM or the BrahMos ASM - Vietnam is still hanging on its' SCUD and also had to buy Yakhnont.)
Sweden won't be able to get the EriEye system pass the HumanRights lobbyists. (Thailand ordered their EriEyes before things got really sour & also bought the Gripen.)

The VPN operates only some Ka-27 in the ASW role and currently doesn't have any MPA or ASW planes. Those Beriev-12 delivered in the 80s are out of service & talks with Ukrainians about refurbishment are not getting anywhere.
Problem: Russia hasn't got a priority to deploy a new MPA/ASW plane.
Japan is never going to get US approval for export of the Kawasaki P1. Also it is too expensive for VN.

The Marine Police (aka Coast Guard) is operating only 3 CASA C-212 with Swedish surveillance equipment. But that's just civilian LEO.

The most realistic option for Vietnam is to go with the EADS/CASA C-295.

The production of the cargo variant is up & running. It's very likely that Indonesia is getting the production license. That would eliminated threat of suspensions of spare part delivery in case of the HumanRights lobby getting a field day in the EU.
The MPA version is already in service with several countries.
The ASW version is under trial & soon will be available.
The AEW&C suite for the C-295 AEW&C version comes from IAI/Elta. Vietnam has got a working relationship with Isreal.
I mean, check out the Vietnamese naval infantry. They got the whole Isreali package. Isreal even sells amoured cars to the Vietnamse riot police. The very riot police, which is responsible for crackdowns on demonstrators. Rumors is that the VPAF Su-30s are flying with Isreali ECM/ECCM suites.

Operating the C-295 would give VN a very streamlined advantage.

IMHO the talk about VN buying P3 Orions reminds me about the talk about VN wanting to buy F16 a few years ago. Even Sen McCain made the comment that VN needs more "freeeeedooooom1!1!!1" before the US would sell Falcons to VN.
Shortly after that VN ordered 28 Su-30MK2Vs.
They pulled the same stunt already in the 90s regarding the French Mirage 2000-5 and the subsequent procurement of the Su-27SK/UBK.

The Viets might have a tight options, but that doesn't mean you can squeeze them during negotiations. Russia knows that.

With recession in Western countries some contractors will put alot pressure on their governments to open up the Vietnamese market - currently an exclusive Russian/EEuropean/Isreali market.

I expect a fairly large order for C-295 Cargo/MPA/ASW/AEW&C by Vietnam in next 2 years. Maybe VN ends up with operating the largest C-295 fleet.

Anyone here wants to bet?

My 2cents

Western forums are already used to Chinese 50ct army and the rabbidly-nationalist Chinese colllege students, who just found a new spot to hang around for a while before he/she gets banned.

We just need to get used to the Vietnamese ones - not as strong in numbers, but as mad in behaviour.

I really should setup a combined Dokdo/Sensaku/Spratley thread. Dis Gon B Gud- watch dem E/SEAsians going full retard.....

You seem to be under the impression I'm inclined to listen or respond well to people that use expressions like "dis gon b gud" and "full retard" - allow me to disabuse you of that notion. Threads made with the intention of winding people up are going to get closed, and members who refer to racial groups as "retards" are going to get banned.

I hope this is clear enough for you.
