In this article, Bangkok post said we got 2 subs. I guess they really need a reason to buy those subs.

If Royal Thai Navy want they should buy at least four submarines,two for Andaman sea and the others for Gulf of Thailand. They still bought only three submarines.There are three fleets in Thailand: the Northern Gulf of Thailand Fleet, the Southern Gulf of Thailand Fleet and the Andaman Sea Fleet.Therefore,buying three submarines is like one submarine per fleet.On the other hand, they still have only one submarine squadron which was officially unveiled on 7 July 2014.The location of that squadron is at the Sattahip naval base in Chon Buri province.That squadron is part of the Northern Gulf of Thailand Fleet.The gulf of Thailand is also relatively shallow: its mean depth is 58 metres (190 ft) and the maximum depth is only 85 metres (279 ft).Therefore,submarines seems to be an unnecessary luxury for a country like Thailand.

Sounds good. Maybe we can buy Japanese Ships. Also, the minister of Defence of the Russian Federation is coming at the end of the month.

The whole of Thailand's territorial waters is mostly too shallow for submarines. If war did break out where are the subs going to hide?

Myanmar should not be going western because this will anger China and Russia who are all whether friends of Myanmar.

China and Russia will support Myanmar till death and these two have vetoed every resolution against Myanmar. Don't committ suicide by buying equipments from Europe and its allies.

I think Russian defence minister should sign a deal for Kilo class submarines or T-90 tanks or Mi-35p helicopters

It is very important to note that the upcoming vist is a Working Visit, not a good will visit.
Somewhat interesting.
I heard that along with Su 30s, Ka 27/29 ASW helos will also be delivered very soon.

I just remember that back in 2019 a group of naval personal went to japan and visited the japanese submarine rescue ship and underwater medicine center. So may be we are buying a sub rescue ship from Japan since that would technically would not be military.

Russia will supply Myanmar with "Pantsiri", drones "Orlan-10E" and a radar

38fff2a366ac4f75b69722de469c0161.jpg





Russia will supply Pantsir-S1 air defense missile systems, Orlan-10E drones and radar stations to Myanmar.

The document was signed in the presence of Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, who was in Myanmar on an official visit, and the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Myanmar, Senior General Min Aung Hline. The signature from the Russian Federation was put by the Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation for International Military Cooperation, Colonel-General Alexander Fomin.

The legal framework for military-technical cooperation between Russia and Myanmar was created back in 2001. Collaboration is actively evolving. The Russian side managed to deliver to Myanmar 30 MiG-29 fighters, 12 Yak-130 combat training aircraft, ten Mi-24 / Mi-35P helicopters, eight Pechora-2M air defense systems and, in addition, radar stations, artillery systems and various armored vehicles ... In addition, a contract for the supply of six Su-30SME aircraft is being implemented.

All this equipment is serviced and modernized on site, in a joint service technical center established in Myanmar. Both aircraft and armored vehicles are serviced there.

Military cooperation between Russia and Myanmar has been actively developing over the past five years. The Armed Forces of Myanmar regularly participate in the International Army Games, as well as in Russian combat training events. For example, in the Kavkaz-2020 strategic command-staff exercises.

In addition, in 2018, Russia and Myanmar entered into an intergovernmental agreement, implying a simplified procedure for the entry of warships into each other's ports. The Armed Forces of Myanmar are showing interest in other modern Russian models of military equipment. ■
