    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 People's Ground Forces - Page 2 Ba13ecb55a213a8b04fc7af88dabc297

    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.

    In Vietnam, the production of Russian large-caliber sniper rifle OSV-96

    Vietnam People's Ground Forces - Page 2 5141617_original

    According to the Vietnamese Internet resource Soha.vn, the licensed production of the Russian large-sized sniper rifle OSV-96 "Burglar" has been launched at the Z111 arms factory of the Defense Ministry of Vietnam in Thanh Hoa.

    At Z111, in 2014, a modern production line for Israeli automatic rifles Galil ACE 31 (shortened model) and Galil ACE 32 under the license of the Israeli private company Israel Weapon Industries (IWI) was launched. Both samples are produced under the Soviet cartridge 7.62x39 mm and are designed to replace the Kalashnikov assault rifles of the same caliber in the Vietnam People's Army.

    The large-sized sniper rifle OSV-96 was developed in the mid-1990s in Tula, in Instrument Design Bureau (KBP), originally known as the B-94. In 1994, an experienced 12.7-mm self-loading sniper rifle V-94 was first introduced in Russia. After minor modernization, this rifle entered service under the designation OSV-96. Currently, the rifle is offered to all interested domestic and foreign buyers.

    Modernization of T-54/55 tanks in Vietnam

    Modernization of T-54/55 tanks (there are more than 1200 of them) on the armored repair factory Z 153 of the Ministry of Defense of Vietnam. Despite the recent order in Russia 64 new T-90S/SK, upgraded T-54/55 in the short term will form the basis of the armored fleet of the country. The upgrade option under the designation T-54M3 was developed quite a long time ago. The project was carried out jointly with Israel, which supplied the 105 mm M-68 gun to replace the 100 mm D-10T2S gun, meteorological sensors, a modern telescopic sight with an IR channel, additional composite and dynamic reservation packages.

    However, later, due to the high cost of the project, the tank gun M-68 had to be abandoned, nevertheless, tanks were equipped with an additional fence minimizing the cumulative effect, and the electronic components of the tank were protected by special modules.

    Nice upgrade to the T-55 to be honest Vietnam doesn't new heavy mbts. For the type of conflict and terrain T-55 are ideal especially with the upgrades and invest in some bastion missiles. Another useful upgrade is the BTR-T could either use a mixture of either twin 30mm guns, single or twin 57mm, or twin 61-k 37 mm, (the latter two they have in storage) then just mount konkurs or kornet Or shershan. Of course they could easily upgrade zsu-57-2 with addition of anti tank missiles as mentioned and give it a roof.

    As for the BTR -152 it's still perfectly capable of being used as an ambulance and why not make use of it. Better than scrapping and buying new. In fact this upgrade looks pretty impressive considering the age of the vehicle and what it was like before. I've always thought that the BTR -50 would be good as a mortar carrier. Of course they could easily convert btr-40b to an ambulance as well

    The photographs published on the page on www.facebook.com of the Vietnamese participant under the nickname "Comrade Commissar" show the delivery of the first batch of T-90S tanks from Russia to Vietnam by sea. In the pictures you can count 32 tanks, unloaded in one of the Vietnamese ports. Apparently, the pictures were taken in the last days of December 2018.

    Recall that in the public annual report of JSC Scientific and Production Corporation Uralvagonzavod (UVZ) for 2016, it was reported that in 2017 the company should have started the implementation of a contract with the customer 704 (Vietnam) for the supply of 64 T-90S tanks.

    I'd imagine that they might purchase a few more but not a massive number. It actually suits vietnam to have lighter smaller tanks that are not as sophisticated due to terrain and type of warfare. They have over the last few years been upgrading their T -55 and T-62. As for their type 59/62/63 it's unlikely that China will offer them upgrades so it will either come from some other country or homegrown upgrades although I'd imagine that T-90 coming into service they will be reducing the type series tanks. Most of the USA made stuff is on the scrap heap or used as targets. The modernization of ground forces seems to be a low priority for vietnam as it's main threats are air and sea and as they proved in war low tech weapons in this type of warfare is enough. They mostly need a light mobile force and only need heavier armour for urban areas etc.

    They could purchase the MMWT an indo-turk medium tank although upgrade the gun to russian 125mm gun to help stream line calibre inventory and add some punch and/or purchase some 2S25 sprut.

    Nobody really build's light and medium tanks anymore these are the closest thing. Tank destroyers in the form of ATGW system are also good option with many options available but this is too costly to field in large numbers and certainly on vietnam ground forces budget but a small number would be good even konkurs would be an improvement but they would still need light and medium tanks
