So I finally managed to read thru your article. Very comprehensive analysis and very well written. Not too bad. I personally think Vietnam needs more quantity. Acquiring 6 more submarines in the medium term would be ideal. Aip and ballistic missile capability would be a nice add-on.

Yes, Vietnam needs another 6 subs in order to have a powerful deterrence. As far as I know, the next sub purchase will be for European subs. Vietnam had been negotiating with Italy for the purchase of the S-1000 sub, but nothing has been heard since.

I am pretty sure negotiations are under way to get more subs. It takes time as Vietnam is choosy wanting the best deals. More subs not for fun but to counter the increasing threat from the China naval fleets. But I understand now the economy is top priority, m the buildup can increase step by step. Very helpful if Vietnam gets money by selling military stuffs to friendly countries.

These ships displayed on Indo Defence are remarkable because they prove: Vietnam can mass produce missile corvette and support ships.

Submarine launched land attack cruise missile 3M-14E. Will Vietnam master the technology to produce the missile en mass and extend the range to 2.500 km as initially designed.

CNBC, a US broadcaster reports despite US sanction threat, Vietnam wants to go ahead with the acquisition of Russia-made S400 missile defense system.

Maybe Vietnam should drive both rails ...not only Russia but also by acquisition of F35 fighter aircraft. Donald Trump government repeatedly urges Vietnam to buy US weapons.
