The comcom source said that the redut vls is used for the 9M96E missile; that missile is part of the S-300 / 400 system, but I'm not aware of a naval system using just that missile, it might be a new development. The 9M96E is a medium range missile (40 km), flying altitude is 20 km.

The location for the reduct vls in the Gepard is where the Palma is in the first batch of Gepards.

Hmmm I still have my doubts about that. The Gepard model with VLS has a different bridge design that leaves alot of space between the bridge and the AK-176. The current 4 Viet Gepards leaves little space in that area for a VLS, especially a 16 cell VLS. It won't be long until we find out.

it is indeed on page 33.

Awesome!!!!!!!!! I don't have access to their reports (which database are they on?)

I may ask you for some info from their reports in the future. I'm still on summer break right now.

BTW, infiniti Research also publish reports on the military industry. Maybe, when you have time, you can cross check on the tanks and ships we've discussed in this thread.

@Viet The source at comcom replied to me that the reason for the $350 million for the Gepard is that it has a Reduct VLS system. The Reduct VLS can be used with the KH-35 and other missiles; its a 16 cell system. I'm trying to find out what missile gets used there.

There is a possibility that the Gepards carry the Kinzhai missiles for air defense (naval version of the Tor).
okie, I will try to find out what is going behind the public announcements. a lot of things make no sense. for instance, considering our vietnam relatively small GDP output, we can't afford such a defence spending.

OK I will try to get someone you trust to confirm this report about T-72 and Indian T-90s:

@Nihonjin1051 bro, do you have access to BMI (business monitor international) reports? (they should be available from your University's online database). If you do, can you please check out the "Vietnam defence & Security Report Q1 2015" and confirm to our dear @madokafc that the report does mention the 480 T-72 and Indian T-90s obtained by VietNam?

Thanks mate.
Possibly its not T-72, but an Advanced Tank-Ex. The T-72 chassis and Arjun turret with BEL and israeli electronics, that is the DRDO providing medium term solution for light tank to IA before FMBT.

Or a new Tank Ex is in development which take the base of T-90, but total Indian solution. No, license production from Russia.

But one thing, India is development going on for Rifled gun and not Smoothbore, and by 2025 IA standardize that. If you want to going to standardize Rifled gun instead of smoothbore. Then I think only India and UK making the R&D in this arena, you become total dependent on India for that like for CLGM.

i did a brief search and it seems my database has access to those infiniti research reports. but you have to give me a specific title you want to look for as its a very broad database. i will look into the tanks and ships when i have some free time.

it is not. this thing has been rumoured for a very long time to be in vietnam's possession, probably started in the early 90s. i give you a hint: Long Binh

kangaroo, I have no clue. come on, tell me what is it. blackflag is banned. instead of revealing the info about, he trolled the chinese.

I don´t understand you, either. this thread is about news & discussion about VN military. if you know something, you are encouraged to share with others. Why is the point of hiding it? you give a hint? you are not a quiz master, and we are not here on a quiz show. the bmi report is public.

Now a Russian source is also talking about VN having 480 T-72 tanks.

Vietnam’s Russian Restocking: Subs, Ships, Sukhois, and More

Jan 10/14: Tanks. Vietnam is reportedly investigating the possibility of upgrading at least some of their existing fleet of about 480 T-72 main battle tanks, and buying T-90s to begin replacing their force of almost 1,000 elderly T-55s. Due diligence has reportedly been done with India’s T-90s, which also face the ravages of hot climates.

The problem is cost. T-72 upgrades can be sourced from a number of countries besides Russia, but top of the line new tanks are costly. If new armored personnel carriers also have to be bought for Vietnam’s armored formations, the entire project gets very expensive very quickly. On the other hand, defeats on land are very, very expensive when you have a large and aggressive neighbor on your border, and a long history of animosity. Tanks may not be the whole answer, but Vietnam will have to spend money to upgrade its land forces in some way.

it is indeed on page 33.

Please reveal Pandora's box. Was not able to find anything that makes sense from your hint. Lets see what page 33 reveals.

there are many rumor about Long Binh, mostly about nuke bombs (may be 3) (name " broken arrow- mũi tên gãy"), but nobody know they are exist, mostly news is we open all of them and get a lot of normal weapon
I don't think it exist

@Carlosa @Black Flag





Hey guys, this is a reliable source. He's a journalist who cover a lot of Indian related stuff, and gave many exclusive info, images. He says it's OPVs, not aware of any OPVs made by them.

Thank you, we've been hearing that the ship is a 35-37 meter patrol boat. Quite small actually, not sure what the purpose of it would be.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------​

@Viet @Black Flag This chart was posted at the MP forum, it shows weapon purchases, the interesting new stuff here is the Aster 30 air defense missile (120 km range), but for what ship? And also 2 Holland class OPV's. The Holland OPV is supposed to be a low end ship with no missiles systems, but it has a nice integrated radar mast. The BMI reports mentions that VN is negotiating helo purchases with France, it should be the NH-90 for the Holland OPV's. That's a nice OPV at 3750 tons, 108 meters x 16m. The price is not bad at $250 million for 2 ships.

According to the chart, the Sigma ships price at 660 million for 2 ships includes 32 Exocet missiles and 48 MICA missiles, that would explain the high price of the ship. The exocet is 5 million and the Mica is 3 million each.

The Guarani wheeled 6x6 APC is nice. Made by Brasil under license from Iveco (Italy).
