    Chinese anti-aircraft missile system KS-1SM in Thailand

    As reported, in the course of February 4, 2017 the open day at airbase 7th Wing RAF Thailand in Surat Thani in the south were first demonstrated elements of Thailand received the Chinese anti-aircraft missile system KS-1SM. It is reported that so far, Thailand has received one division of the SAM comprising one fire battery consisting of three or four self-propelled launchers.

    Recall that on the conclusion of a contract with Thailand to Chinese foreign trade association China Precision Machinery Import-Export Corporation (CPMIEC) for procurement division of the Chinese SAM KS-1 (HQ-12) became known in October 2016.

    Thailand thus became the third recipient of foreign SAM series KS-1 (HQ-12) after Myanmar (modification received KS-1A complexes) and Turkmenistan (which received a modification KS-1C). Differences of complex KS-1SM, supplied in Thailand, were not disclosed.

    SAM KS-1 (HQ-12) is the first more or less independently created in Chinese medium-range air defense systems, and has been designed and produced the Chinese Academy of Defense Technology (Academy of Defense Technology, better known as the "Second Academy CASIC»), which is part of state Corporation China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation (CASIC). Although the system is carried out from the beginning of the 1990s, the export success of the new modifications of the complex began only in the last few years. The complex uses solid anti-aircraft missiles, and has to be modified KS-1C the claimed effective range of up to 70 km.

    Thailand buys another ten Chinese tanks VT4

    According to the US edition of DefenseNews, referring to a statement by the Thai government's press secretary, the Thai cabinet approved the acquisition for the Thai army of another ten major tanks VT4 (MVT-3000) from the Chinese foreign trade association Norinco. $ 58 million was allocated for this purchase.

    Earlier in April 2016, Thailand signed a contract with Norinco to purchase the first 28 VT4 tanks at a cost of $ 5.3 million per unit, while it was indicated that the purchase of these tanks would continue.



    The bmpd comment. Thailand has decided to purchase Chinese VT4 tanks due to the constant delay in deliveries of BM Oplot-T tanks from Ukraine under a contract in 2011 (currently Thailand has received only 20 BMO Oplot-T from 49 ordered, another five are expected in the near future Future). It was reported that if the Thai side was satisfied with the operation and delivery time of the VT4 tanks, then another 150 VT4 tanks could be ordered in China. Although the assembly of tanks in Thailand VT4 is not envisaged, however, the contract of April 2016 included an agreement on the transfer by the Chinese side of a number of technologies to the Thai Defense Technology Institute (DTi).

    Recall that in 2015 it was reported that the army of Thailand created a special committee for the acquisition of new main tanks to resolve the "deadlock" with the receipt of BM "Oplot-T" from Ukraine. This committee considered as possible options for the acquisition of two types of tanks - the Russian T-90 (in T-90C or T-90MS versions) and Chinese VT4 (MBT-3000). Selection of options was determined by the requirement of the Thai army to the tank to have a 125-mm tank gun, which excluded Western models (according to other sources, the South Korean tank K1A1 was still considered as another option).

    Representatives of the Thai Committee visited the Russian NPK Uralvagonzavod JSC (in May 2015) and the Chinese company Inner Mongolia First Machinery Group (plant No. 617), part of the Norinco group (in October 2015), having held the appropriate negotiations.In the final analysis, the choice was made in favor of the Chinese proposal.

    In February 2016, it was reported that the Thai Army received approval for a budget allocation of 8.99745 billion baht (about $ 251 million) over three years (2016-2018 fiscal years) for the purchase of 51 new tanks (VT4).

    As it appears from the photographic materials that appeared after the press tour for Ukrainian journalists on Kharkiv State Enterprise "Malyshev Plant" held on May 25, 2017, the enterprise completed the production of a total of 35 BMO "Oplot-T" tanks under the 2011 contract for Thailand. Ten production-finished tanks (from 26th to 35th) were demonstrated in the plant's shop, some of which have already been painted, and, apparently, some have already been accepted by the Thai side, and the remaining 14 tanks (from 36 On the 49th) under this contract.
