Launching Vietnam’s fastest passenger ship, 35 knots, I think also suitable for transporting troops to remote islands.

That’s more for leisure.

A big fish: Vietnam’s Austal shipyard is about to deliver a US$97.7 million catamaran to Trinidad. The vessel can carry 926 passengers and 250 cars at speeds of 37.5 knots. A good step forward. It’s still a long way until Vietnam can build frigates and destroyers though.

31 T90S tanks are built. Still many to go. Seen on letter “B” (Вьетнама - Việt Nam) painted on tanks inside Russia’s tank factory UralVagonZavod.

There is speculation Vietnam may get tank kits from Russia and build them into complete tanks at home. Actually a Win win for Russia and Vietnam. Cheaper. Vietnam tank armies could need 1,000 modern tanks in addition to the existing 1,500 legacy tanks.

A Vietnam-made mini satellite “microdragon” is complete and ready to be launched for January 17, 2019 into orbit. mission: monitoring the sea and waters along coastal areas. A Japanese Epsilon-4 rocket from the Uchinoura Space Centre will carry the mini sat among with 6 other into space.

Interesting: in theory Japan can use Epsilon rocket as ICBM. Just a bit of modification though.

Overtime I foresee much cooperation between Vietnam, Japan and India in aerospace. In Vietnam case, you will be needing more and more dual use tech with time (you mention space launcher/ICBM crossover for example) to cover large adversary with deterrence assets at minimal cost....and they serve well for civilian needs in the larger frontier economy too.

I read India’s army wants to acquire the newer version of Heron drones that is also an interesting concept of defense for Vietnam too. The drone can start from the deck of any medium to large warship. Virtually turning any warship into a carrier.

Yeah the epsilon rocket requires very little manpower for operation and is very flexible in way of launching. It can be used as the basis of an ICBM should it be deemed necessary.

Vietnam may drop purchase of new batch of Israeli air defense missile systems – source

MOSCOW, December 13. /TASS/. Vietnam may give up further purchases of Israeli SPYDER (Surface-to-air PYthon and DERby) short-range air defense missile systems due to flaws found in these weapons, a source close to Vietnam’s Defense Ministry told TASS.

The Defense Ministry of Vietnam is against purchasing a new batch of Israeli SPYDER short-range systems. Specifically, in the estimate of military specialists, these systems operate poorly in tropical conditions and regularly break down,” the source said.

The SPYDER weapons are also incompatible with the earlier supplied Russian surface-to-air missile systems, “which lowers the efficiency of Vietnam’s united air defense,” the source added.

“The Israeli systems have been test-fired in Vietnam since the beginning of this year and in most cases these firings failed,” the source noted.

TASS does not yet have official comments from the Vietnamese and Israeli defense ministries.

A contract with Israel’s Rafael for the delivery of SPYDER surface-to-air missile systems to Vietnam was signed in 2015. The sum of the deal was not disclosed. According to open sources, the Vietnamese side then acquired five or six batteries of these air defense systems and 250 missiles for them.

Why buying a missile system that can’t work in the tropical climate?
Crazy. Israel should quickly provide a bug fix. Otherwise it’s a gap in Vietnam united air defense.

Viet Nam News

HÀ NỘI — The 108 Military Central Hospital will put its central building into operation on December 17 as the country’s largest and most modern medical facility after more than seven years of construction.

Located inside the current hospital at No1 Trần Hưng Đạo Street, Hoàn Kiếm District, Hà Nội, the construction consists of three buildings (two 22-storey buildings with a height of 108m and a 10-storey building) with a total floor area of 150,000sq.m and 2,000 beds, with capacity for 4,000 in emergencies.

The building is the country’s only medical facility with 50 positive-pressure operating rooms, including 45 standard operating rooms, three organ transplant operating rooms and two hybrid operating rooms. The hybrid rooms are equipped with advanced diagnosis, intervention and surgery facilities such as MRI machines, CT Scanners and a robotic intervention imaging system.

"With patient-centered orientation, the building has been equipped with many modern facilities that meet international standards to provide accuracy, speed and satisfaction to patients," said Deputy Director of the 108 Military Central Hospital Phạm Nguyên Sơn.

Sơn said as the highest level of military hospital, the hospital receives between 4,000 – 5,000 patients daily. In 2018, it has provided health checkups and examination for nearly a million patients.

To reduce waiting time of patients and increase efficiency in medical examination and treatment, the hospital will be the first medical facility in the country to operate two gas and conveyor transport systems. The gas transportation system is used to transport samples, drugs, medical instruments weighing from three to five kilos.

"With gas and conveyor transportation systems, samples are transferred automatically from the lab to the testing centre that helps to reduce human power and health workers would have more time to take care for patients," said Sơn.

In addition, the hospital also has an advanced automated testing system that can perform 3,600 tests per hour.

"This automated testing system help improving quality and quantity of tests and shortening the waiting time of patients," stressed Sơn.

This facility will contribute to the enhancement of scientific and technical resources for scientific research, training, technology transfer for the medical staff in the military sector as well as medical facilities in the country, according to Sơn. — VNS

Don’t know. Either someone was sleeping when making decision or the missile was only test fired in Israel.

We have had issues with Spike ATGM from Israel too. But they were just under trial and now cancelled, we will make a local system with optimised sensor for our desert conditions.
