    Russian arms sales to South-east Asia  Empty Russian arms sales to South-east Asia

    Post  George1 Fri Apr 27, 2012 9:56 pm

    Analysis

    Russian arms sales to South-east Asia are broadly in line with defense contracts with other overseas customers. The bulk of contracts are for aircraft (fixed wing and helicopters). Ships and missiles also have a share of the market, while tanks and other ground forces equipment are much less significant. Vietnam and Indonesia purchase a significant proportion of their total military hardware from Russia. Russian exports play a much smaller role in Burma, Malaysia, and Thailand, and Russian defense manufacturers have not sold any weapons to the Philippines, Singapore, Brunei or Taiwan.

    Vietnam’s increasing importance

    Vietnam has recently become one of the world-leading purchasers of Russian arms. It received 6% of all Russian arms deliveries in 2010 and concluded 12% of all publicly identified contracts.

    Some of the largest contracts have involved the air force. In the last decade, Vietnam has purchased 24 Su-30MK2 fighter jets; taken together, the deals are worth an estimated 1.5 billion dollars:

    The first four Su-30MK2s were received in 2004.
    In 2009, Vietnam purchased eight more planes, the first two of which were delivered in 2010.
    Another twelve were ordered in 2010; eight to ten of these planes are expected to be delivered by the year-end.
    The 2010 deal also included weapons for the eight planes ordered in 2009. The planes will be armed with 150 R-73 (AA-11) short range anti-aircraft missiles (SRAAMs) and 20 Kh-31A1 (AS-17) anti-ship missiles.

    The navy has also made significant purchases:

    These first of two Gepard class frigates purchased under a 350 million dollar deal in 2006 was delivered in 2010, with the second expected this year. These were armed with SA-19 surface-to-air missiles (SAMs).
    In 2009, Vietnam spent approximately 2 billion dollars on six Kilo class diesel submarines, to be delivered beginning in 2013.
    It is also acquiring Tarantul V class corvettes, two of which were delivered in 2008. Another eight are being produced in Vietnam.
    In 2010, Vietnam received the second of two Bastion-P coastal defense systems, armed with 40 advanced Yakhont (SS-N-26) anti-ship missiles, which were ordered in 2007 as part of a 300 million dollar deal.

    Indonesia’s focus on Russian aircraft

    Although the Indonesian military has traditionally imported most of its weapons from NATO states, in recent years it has increasingly turned to Russia. This has been especially notable in the air force and in army aviation. The first Indonesian purchase of Russian military equipment took place in 2001, when the army bought twelve BTR-80A infantry fighting vehicles (IFVs). Another 17 BMP-3F IFVs were purchased in a 40 million dollar deal in 2008, with delivery completed in 2010.

    In 2002, the army bought six Mi-17V5 armed helicopters. Another six of these were purchased in 2005 and delivered in 2008. Army aviation also operates eight Mi-35P attack helicopters, purchased in several deals over the last decade. Four of these helicopters, purchased in 2008 for 54 million dollars, were delivered last year. These helicopters are armed with 9M114 (AT-6) Spiral anti-tank missiles and Igla-1 (SA-16) portable SAMs.

    The air force has purchased two types of fighter jets – Su-27SKs and Su-30MKs – in three separate deals worth a total of 500-550 million dollars. Infamously, the bulk of the payment in the 2003 deal was made in palm oil, rather than currency.

    In addition, the navy is considering buying two Kilo class diesel submarines, though a contract has yet to be signed; a South Korea competitor is still in the running in the final stages of a tender that was initially proposed in 2006, but repeatedly postponed due to lack of funding.

    Burma’s shift towards Russia


    When Burma began to modernize its military in the 1990s, it mostly purchased weapons and systems from China. This began to change in the last 10 years, as the air force began to look to Russia for both its fixed wing combat aircraft and helicopters. Since then, orders have included:

    ten MiG-29B and 2 MiG-29UB (two-seater) fighter jets, received in 2001-02 as part of a 130 million dollar deal, and armed with R-27 (AA-10) air-to-air missiles and R-73 (AA-11) SRAAMs;
    20 MiG-29SMT fighter jets, ordered in 2009 as part of a 570 million dollar deal, to be delivered this year;
    eight to ten Mi-35 attack helicopters, ordered in 2009 for 50 million dollars;
    50 Mi-24 attack helicopters and 12 Mi-2 armored transport helicopters, ordered in 2010; and
    an unknown number of Pechora-2M SAM systems, ordered in 2009.

    Malaysia’s limited purchases

    Malaysia buys weapons from a wide range of suppliers. Its most significant Russian acquisitions have been aircraft, though some missile systems were also purchased in the past. It has acquired:

    18 MiG-29N fighter aircraft ordered in 1995 but modernized in 2002-03, of which 14 are still in service;
    18 Su30-MKM fighter aircraft, armed with a range of anti-air and anti-ship missiles, purchased in 2003 and received in 2007-09;
    100 9M131 (AT-13) anti-tank missiles purchased in 2001; and
    382 Igla-1 (SA-16) portable SAM systems, including 40 launchers, purchased in 2002.

    Emerging cooperation with Thailand

    Most Thai military equipment comes from the United States, China, or West European suppliers. However, the army has recently begun to engage with Russian and Ukrainian manufacturers. In 2008, Thailand signed contracts to purchase Mi-17V5 helicopters and 36 Igla-S (SA-24) portable air defense systems. The Iglas were delivered in 2010, and at least one of the helicopters was delivered in February 2011. In terms of IFVs, Thailand has been more reliant on Ukraine than Russia.

    Philippines may acquire 12 Yak-130 aircraft

    That would be a big step forward for the Philippines.

    I would think at the very least it should enable them to negotiate better terms and prices from the US if it is clear they are prepared to buy from Russia.

    The Yak-130s also look like very useful aircraft for training and operational use.

    I rather suspect that a current model two seater with the centreline pylon used to carry something like a Damocles targeting pod and navigation system, the remaining 8 weapon pylons could carry a range of other weapons including guided bombs and anti ship weapons... plus twin engine safety for this island nation.

    Later models with radar and EO systems will be even more useful.

    The Philippines also needs high performance multi role fighter aircrafts and they are looking for a non US source . Now, the issue is unlike China , Japan , India , South Korea or even Indonesia they do not have deep pockets . Russia should therefore try to sell some old / used SU 30 aircrafts to this island nation .

    Perhaps an early model Mig-29 with an SMT upgrade to make it cheaper and easier to operate with performance that allows it to carry R-77s and R-73s and guided air to ground and anti ship weapons?

    Russia Gains Leadership Supplying Asia with Ships and Armor

    Russia takes the lead in deliveries of naval and armored weapons to Asia-Pacific countries in 2005-2012, reports the World Arms Trade Analytic Center (WATAC).

    According to WATAC, overall export of Russian military products to Asia-Pacific region through the recent 8 years makes $32.7 bln. Thus, Russia gains the second position after the US exporting arms to overall amount of $53.6 bln. France takes the third place with $9.9 bln.

    Largest items of Russian military export to Asian countries are aircraft equipment ($11.6 bln), naval equipment ($6.2 bln), helicopter equipment ($3.7 bln), and armored equipment ($2.6 bln).

    Global export to Asia-Pacific countries is $134.8 bln in the 8-year long period. The year of 2011 was the most fruitful when regional countries bought foreign arms to $25.5 bln. Largest export item is airplanes and UAVs ($56.8 bln, 42.17% of overall volume). Then comes "other arms", "naval equipment", "helicopter equipment", and "armored equipment".

    Asia-Pacific region includes 29 countries including China, North Korea, Japan, Australia, India, Indonesia, Thailand, and Pakistan.

    As was reported earlier, through the 3 recent years Russia has granted military export credits to $7 bln. Amid new Asian countries selected Russian arms are Sri Lanka, Vietnam, and Indonesia. In particular, Indonesia took a $1-bln credit. Jakarta spent that money on 18 multirole helicopters Mi-17-V5, five attack helicopters Mi-35P, and 20 amphibious combat vehicles BMP-3F.

    Russian arms sales to South-east Asia  Empty PAK-FA export contracts

    Post  Viktor Fri Mar 22, 2013 2:48 pm

    I think it would be convenient to have only one topis about export contracts of PAK-FA.

    Well I think this is an interesting development as Malaysia already operates 18 Su-30MKM with the option to buy another 18.

    That contract could be executed probably by the time Malaysia decided to pull of its MIG-29N.

    Also this is interesting because Indonesia and South Korea decided to jointly develop KF-X 5th generation so this might not be

    a coincidence that PAK-FA will be presented in Malaysia.




    03/22/13 PROGRAM TO CREATE A RUSSIAN-INDIAN FIFTH-GENERATION FIGHTER WILL BE PRESENTED AT AN AIR SHOW IN MALAYSIA
    March 22 2013
    .

    27/03/13 KOMARDIN: MALAYSIA IMPRACTICAL TO ACQUIRE FROM RUSSIA T-50 FIGHTERS




    RIA Novosti . Royal Air Force (IAF), Malaysia would be inappropriate to adopt and buy a Russian fifth generation fighter aircraft (PAK FA), but Russia intends to continue to advance in this country modernized versions of the Su-30 MKM, said the deputy director general of Rosoboronexport Viktor Komardin on LIMA-2013 air show.

    "Malaysia is not too interested in the supersonic cruising speed, which will fly PAK FA. In Russia, or, like the United States, the fifth generation fighter is relevant because we have long distances, which can be quickly overcome at supersonic speed. And Malaysia - a small country, and we understand that there will be no supersonic demand "- said Komardin.

    Therefore, he said, will continue to offer Rosoboronexport Malaysia deeply modernized version of the Su-30 MKM. Countries are in service with 18 of these aircraft.

    "We will be here to promote improved extensively modified and revised version of the Su-30 MKM. Platform of this aircraft is great, it is like the Malaysian pilots. Again and economic considerations connected: here in Malaysia, with our help, have already created a service center, a training center for pilots, it also invested big money. addition, flight simulators for pilots laid face is the Su-30 MKM "- said Komardin.

    According to him, Malaysia economically feasible to move to a different type of fighter jets and other aircraft manufacturers. "In the arms of Malaysia is 18 Su-30 MKM. Country invested huge money, successful experience serving the entire infrastructure. If there is something new, is that - all throw?" - Concluded the Deputy Director General of Rosoboronexport.

    Russia will deliver 10 fighters to Vietnam and India in 2014

    In the network of export contracts the enterprises of United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) will deliver 4 Su-30MK2 fighters to Vietnam and six MiG-29K/KUB fighters to India in the second half of 2014, Kommersant reports.

    The delivery schedule also includes delivery of a second batch of Su-30K fighters to Angola. However, these jets require repair and upgrade so the delivery was rescheduled for 2015.

    The schedule of export deliveries for 2014 includes delivery of 10 jets to India and Vietnam, a source close to Rosoboronexport explained. "Two Su-30MK2 jets manufactured by Komsomolsk-on-Amur Aviation Plant will be delivered to the air forces of Vietnam in November and two more ones – in December,— the source said.— Six MiG-29K/KUB jets will be delivered to Indian Ministry of Defense: one in August, one in September, two jets in October and the rest two ones – in November". Russia will start the implementation of the contract with Vietnam and continue implementation of the contract with India. Rosoboronexport declined to comment on the matter.

    The last contract with Vietnam for delivery of 12 Su-30MK2 fighters worth about $600 million was signed last August. It is the third one: the previous contracts for delivery of eight and twelve fighters respectively have been successfully implemented by the enterprise. The air forces of Vietnam expect to take delivery of the rest eight Su-30MK2 jets in 2015.

    Six MiG-29K/KUB fighters will be delivered to the customer under the contract for delivery of 29 jets signed in March 2010. According to CEO of RAC MiG, Sergey Korotkov, the corporation delivered seven fighters of the type to the customer in 2013. We remind you that the previous contract between Russia and India for delivery of 16 jets was signed in 2004 in the network of an intergovernmental package agreement for upgrade of Vikramaditya aircraft carrier. The deliveries were started in 2009 and the contract was implemented in late 2011.

    According to the source, Su-30K intended for Angola have also been included in the delivery schedule for 2014 (three jets should have been delivered to the customer in September and three more ones – in November). However, the deliveries have been rescheduled, because the jets need to be repaired and upgraded – the first batch will be delivered to Angola in 2015. We remind you that the contract for delivery of these Su-30K fighters previously operated by India was signed in October 2013 during visit of the vice-premier Dmitry Rogozin to Angola.

    The existence of this contract has been confirmed for the first time by CEO of Rosoboronexport, Anatoly Isaykin. Later, president of Irkut Corporation, Oleg Demchenko, said that 12 upgraded Su-30K fighters will be delivered to Angola and the rest six ones stationed at the 558th aircraft repair plant (Baranovichi, Belarus) will be offered to another country. Belarus and Vietnam considered the possibility of purchasing these jets earlier. However, Isaykin said that the countries did not have enough financial resources: “Even after repair and upgrade not every country is able to purchase these vehicles". We remind you that Angola purchased the jets in the network of $1 billion export credit provided by Russia.

    Taiwan seems to be pretty desperate about modernizing their navy fleet... Currently, their miserable sub fleet dates back to WW2 and contains of only two relevant subs. I've heard that they may swing to Russia as a source for newer SSK's, as the West's models tend to be more expensive... I'm sure they'd love the Amur, which would one up China's 636.

    Russian Arms Exporter to Meet Asian Defense Ministers at LIMA'15 Exhibition

    Rosoboronexport hopes the LIMA'15 exhibition in Malaysia will be a good impetus to further increase the popularity of Russian military equipment in the Asia-Pacific region, the company's general director added.

    LANGKAWI (Sputnik) — Russia's state-run arms trader Rosobornexport is set to hold talks with the defense ministries of a number of Asian countries, the company's general director Anatoly Isaykin said Tuesday.

    Rosoboronexport is taking part in the major Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition (LIMA'15), which started in Malaysia on Tuesday.

    "We are planning to hold talks with the defense ministers of Indonesia, Malaysia, Bangladesh, and the commanders-in-chief of a number of other countries in the [Southeast Asian] region," Isaykin told RIA Novosti.

    Russia was the world’s second largest arms exporter in 2014, while the United States remained on top.

    Rosoboronexport hopes the exhibition will be a good impetus to further increase the popularity of Russian military equipment in the Asia-Pacific region, the company's general director added.

    Earlier, Rosoboronexport's delegation head Vladimir Ereshchenko said the arms trader would exhibit more than 170 pieces of military equipment, including the Yak-130 advanced jet trainer and Be-200 amphibious aircraft.

    Rosoboronexport is one of at least 25 Russian companies showcasing their latest designs at the biennial exhibition, which also features the Russian Helicopters company and the Sukhoi aircraft manufacturer.

    Overall, more than 200 companies from 25 countries are taking part in the LIMA'15 show, which will close on March 21.

    Russia to expand weaponry sales to Southeast Asia — Defense Ministry

    Moscow will host an international military and technical forum, Army-2015, in June

    SINGAPORE. June 1. /TASS/. Russia is ready to develop military and technical cooperation with new markets in Southeast Asia, Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov said at an Asia-Pacific security forum on Monday.

    "This effort will be facilitated by Russia’s expanding potential for the export of new armaments and the broader range of services for their after-sale maintenance and also the economic development rates and the desire of the region's countries to diversify the sources of military hardware supplies," the Russian deputy defense minister said.

    Moscow will host an international military and technical forum, Army-2015, in June. New contracts on the supply of armaments and military hardware may be signed on the forum’s sidelines, the deputy defense minister said.

    Russia counts on the active participation of Southeast Asian countries in this important event, Antonov said.

    "Russia has quite large experience in military and technical cooperation with certain Southeast Asian states, such as Vietnam, Malaysia and Indonesia," the Russian deputy defense minister said.

    "This cooperation has good prospects, considering that Russian armaments are both well-known in the region and constitute the basis for the pool of military hardware in some states like Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia," he added.

    Russia exported armaments and military hardware worth more than $15 billion in 2014 and has signed new contracts to the sum of almost $14 billion.

    Russia’s military products over this period were in demand in more than 60 states. Russian President Vladimir Putin has said Russia is a reliable partner on the world armaments market and does not make the fulfillment of its obligations dependent on the political situation.

    Putin said at the May session of the Russian Commission for Military and Technical Cooperation: "Our competitive advantages include the successful and years-long operation of domestic armaments in all climatic zones."

    The list of the world’s ten largest weaponry importers includes five Asian states, which account for 30% of global armaments imports, according to data of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.

    Russian state-run conglomerate Rostec is working on a “complex deal” that could provide a major boost to Russia-Thailand bilateral trade, The Bangkok Post reported on its website.

    "We are in the middle of negotiations, and that will be a complex deal," Viktor Kladov, head of the International Cooperation Department at Rostec told the paper.
    According to the report, Rostec is in talks to provide new markets for Thai commodities such as rubber, rice, food and fishery products. In return, the Russian conglomerate wants Thailand to buy helicopters, commercial aircraft, trucks and defense equipment.

    Thailand has traditionally relied on the West for its defense requirements, but the country is looking to diversify its purchases. In 2011, the Thai military purchased three Mi-17V-5 helicopters. This was followed up with an agreement to buy two more of these multi-role helicopters for around $40 million in October 2014.

    Russian Helicopters, a Rostec group company, has proposed two other helicopter versions for Thailand -- the Mi-8/17 series and Ansat light helicopter, according to the Bangkok Post report. The paper added that Russian Helicopters' sales pitch to Thailand is that their products are as reliable as Western-built helicopters yet half the cost.

    At last year’s Indo Defence 2014 arms expo in Jakarta, officials from Russia’s export agency Rosoboronexport said they could sell several more of the multi-role helicopters to the Royal Thai Army’s air division. The agency is also keen to supply Thailand with Sukhoi Su 30MKI fighters, which are operated by air forces in India, Malaysia, Vietnam and Indonesia. Although Russia could not sell the fighters to Thailand in 2008, there is a likelihood of Bangkok looking to upgrade its air arsenal this year.

    Interesting news. AFAIK Thai army impressed with Mi-17 they bought years ago.
    But fighter is very unlikely because Thai AF couldn't afford maintenance two different systems.
    Advance trainer is a lot more chance and they're about to retire L-39 fleet.
    And IIRC the deal for couple SSJ100 is signed few months ago.

    Too bad about the tanks. The Chinese tanks are of questionable quality as proven multiple times, but Thailand got a good deal I bet and Ukraine got nothing so I am happy. Helicopters and planes would be a good sale if Russia can get more deals with them.

    People here (in Thailand) seem to be disappointed for the army's tank choice. Most concern is about quality. (me too.)
    Most also think the choice is made from political reasons rather than technical reasons. (yes, me too lol.)

    But I have to admit that VT-4 is really looking good on papers.
    Full hunter-killer capability, APS available, Remote control HMG, IFF, Inter-unit communication network, etc.
    All for $5m is very attractive price.

    For the heli its first time they (Thai army) openly admit about replacement of their problematic chinook.
    Which is good sign because that mean Mi-17 (and may be Russian equipment in general) is gaining trust from Thai army.
    This time 12 birds are waiting for cabinet approval. Not often to see the army proposal helicopter more than couple.

    Not sure where to put this so putting it here


    The Philippine Navy (PN) and Russian Navy are discussing the terms of an agreement to expand collaboration on diesel-electric submarines, state-run media in Manila has reported.

    The Philippine News Agency (PNA) reported on 6 August that the two navies recently discussed the draft memorandum of understanding (MOU) through which Russia would look to meet the PN’s requirement to procure the subsurface capability.

    Citing PN spokesman Commander Jonathan Zata, the PNA said the Philippines is looking at Russia as a “possible source” of submarines and that the pending MOU would enable Russia to provide the PN with submarine training to support military operations, maintenance, and sustainment activities.

    PN officials have also been invited to Russian shipyards to observe submarine construction programmes, he said.

    In late July, the Philippines Department of National Defense confirmed in comments to the PNA that it is currently conducting “market research and doctrine studies” in support of its submarine procurement programme.

    In June, Philippines president Rodrigo Duterte said he had given approval to the PN to accelerate its submarine procurement to provide subsurface attack, patrol, and surveillance capability.

    The acquisition was previously scheduled for 2023–27 under the Philippines’ ‘third horizon’ military modernisation programme but has now been moved forward to the 2018–22 second horizon.

    PN officials have previously told Jane’s that the service requires at least two submarines and that the procurement was initiated in 2015 through the issue of a preliminary request for information (RFI). The PN has also established a submarine programme office that, as part of planning processes, is reviewing contemporary submarine designs and drawing up a concept of operations.

    Russia is participating in the call for bids to supply combat-capable trainer aircraft to Malaysia and will present the Yakovlev Yak-130, head of one of the Rosoboronexport divisions, Sergey Gorbenko, said during the Yak-130 presentation that was held at the LIMA-2019 Expo.
