    105-mm howitzer M101 on the chassis of the truck "Ural" in Vietnam

    In Vietnam, the further development of the pilot installation of the American howitzer M101A1 on the chassis of the Russian truck Ural was presented.

    The first pilot plant was introduced in 2014.

    The Vietnamese Armed Forces, having studied the world and especially the South Korean experience, in the creation and use of mobile howitzers, began to develop their own version.

    The tool itself is an American howitzer, developed back in the Second World War and is still in the arsenal of the armies of many countries of the world. The decision with the use of existing technical developments to create a self-propelled gun mount, allows to reduce development and operation costs. The cannon uses artillery shells 105x372R, the combat mass of howitzer is 2260 kg, the angle of vertical guidance is from -5 to 66 degrees, the angle of horizontal guidance is 46 degrees in each direction, the initial speed of the projectile is 472 m / s, the maximum range of fire is more than 11 km.

    The upgraded installation, designated as M-3, is the deployment of the US 105 mm howitzer M101A1 to the partially armored in Vietnam chassis Ural-375D with an additional 12.7 mm machine gun.

    Vietnam shows interest for Belarus T38 Stilet air defense missile system

    Vietnam could be interested to purchase the Belarus air defense missile system T38 Stilet. A delegation of Vietnam has recently visited the factory of the Belarus Company Tetraedr Research and Production Complex, the manufacturer of the T38 Stilet.

    The T38 STILET is a short-range air defense missile system designed and manufactured by Tetraedr of Belarus to provide enhanced combat and performance capabilities to air defence units.

    The T38 STILET provides acquisition and identification of targets on the move and at halts, as well as engagement of target with one or two missiles from a short halt or from a stationary position. The T38 Stilet program involves a substantial rebuild of the legacy SA-8 Gecko weapon system, with digital hardware replacing much of the legacy Land Roll radar system and supporting computer system for the automatic CLOS missile guidance system.

    The T381 launcher vehicle carries eight missile containers. There are installed in tow group of fours, one of each side of the radar block system. With twice the engagement range of the legacy SA-8 Gecko, better mobility, better ECCM capability, robust E/O engagement capability, and a faster missile round, the T38 Stilet system will be much more lethal and survivable than the legacy Gecko systems it replaces.

    The T38 Stilet missile will have a maximum effective range of 20 km, and will be able to engage targets flying at speeds of up to 900 m/sec . at an altitude from 25 m to up 10,000 m.
