The image has been recorded at the Gia Lam airport showed two aircraft NC-212i bearing number 8991 and 8992 arrived in Vietnam.

As information for many times before, the Air Force of Vietnam has signed a contract to order three more transport aircraft - NC-212i sea patrol, they were assembled at Bandung Plant - Indonesia after the line of Airbus in Spain closed.

In November, 2017, an image of the Indonesian NC-212i sea-view transport aircraft was assembled on the order of Vietnam to carry out the first test flight. .

As of January 9, 2018, in an Indonesian TV news report, the NC-212i was painted new, showing that it was 100% complete and could be handed over in the near future.

And this morning on May 22, photographs of the moment the pair of NC-212i aircraft landed at Gia Lam Airport, the base of the 918th Air Force Brigade.

This new NC-212i was painted in the air, very much like the C-295M on the 18th Army Group with the Vietnamese Air Force on the side, not the white-blue of the Coast Guard as before.

More specifically, the aircraft is still fully integrated with military reconnaissance, marine reconnaissance. It can be predicted that its mission will be to transport, to bridge the airspace connecting the mainland to the remote island.

Thus, the current C-212 / NC-212i squadron of Vietnam has now increased to four, and in the near future we will receive the remaining NC-212i after completing the tests. Feature price in Indonesia.

In addition to the NC-212i, the Vietnamese Air Force has ordered three C-295 light aircraft (most likely the latest C-295W) assembled in Europe.

The addition of modern air transport and maritime surveillance will contribute positively to the strength of the Air Force and Vietnam Coast Guard in particular, as well as the battle to protect the sovereignty of the sea island of the Fatherland. in general.

Australia Selects Spike LR2 ATGM

Rafael Advanced Defense Systems has been selected by the Australian Department of Defence (DoD) to supply its Spike LR2 anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) for the Australian Army.

Australia becomes the second export customer for Spike LR2, after Latvia ordered an undisclosed quantity earlier this year.

Beating out the MMP (Missile Moyenne Portée or medium range missile) from MBDA in what was a mini-contest inside the competition to supply an 8×8 Combat Reconnaissance Vehicle (CRV) under the Land 400 Phase 2 programme, Spike LR2 will arm the Rheinmetall Boxer CRV, itself selected ahead of the BAE Systems AMV35 on 13 March this year under a AUD5.2 billion (USD3.91 billion) acquisition.

Whilst both Spike LR2 and MMP met the Land 400 Phase 2 requirement for a missile able to engage main battle tanks at 4,000 m, Jane’s understands that the Spike LR2’s more streamlined integration into the Army’s existing Elbit-sourced battle management system and the technical maturity of the Spike-launcher combination on the Boxer CRV were decisive in the selection. Rheinmetall, in addition, did not include the MMP in its Boxer CRV proposal.

Spike LR2 will be fired from the twin-round ATGM launcher installed on the left side of the Boxer CRV’s two-man Lance turret, with the launcher being almost identical to that on the German Army’s Puma infantry fighting vehicle (IFV). Earlier this year, the German Army successfully completed qualification of the in-service Spike LR ATGM for Puma. Supplied by EuroSpike, the Spike LR is known as MELLS (German acronym for ‘multi-role lightweight guided missile system’) in German service.

The final qualification trials of Spike LR on Puma were undertaken by the German Army and Rheinmetall at the company’s Unterlüss facility and included the live firing of several Spike LR missiles out to ranges between 2,000 and 4,000 m, in both the fire-and-forget and fire-and-observe modes.

MoU Pembelian A400M Sudah Diteken, Airbus Tunggu Kontrak

23 Mei 2018

JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com - Airbus masih menunggu kontrak kesepakatan pembelian dua unit pesawat angkut A400M, dari pemerintah Indonesia. Adapun nota kesepahaman dikatakan sudah ditandatangani.

"MoU-nya sudah ditandatangani, namun kita masih menunggu Indonesia menandatangani kontrak (pembelian)," kata juru bicara Airbus kepada KompasTekno, Senin (21/5/2018) di Jakarta.

"Sebagai wakil dari pemerintah adalah Pelita Air," imbuh juru bicara tersebut.

Untuk diketahui, Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) sifatnya tidak mengikat, hanya menunjukkan niat untuk membeli. Masing-masing pihak masih bisa membatalkan. Berbeda dengan kontrak pembelian yang sifatnya lebih mengikat.

Kabar pembelian 2 unit pesawat angkut berat Airbus A400M sudah berembus sejak Maret 2018 lalu, namun hingga kini belum ada kelanjutannya. Pembelian pesawat akan dilakukan oleh salah satu BUMN, dan pengoperasiannya akan diserahkan kepada TNI AU.

Airbus A400M tersebut kabarnya akan dipakai oleh pemerintah Indonesia, untuk mengangkut logistik dan kebutuhan pokok, ke wilayah Indonesia Timur. Saat ditanya kapan pesawat Airbus A400M tersebut bisa dikirim, perwakilan Airbus mengatakan bisa mengirimkan 2,5 hingga 3 tahun setelah kontrak pembelian resmi ditandatangani.

"Jika kontraknya ditandatangani sekarang, kami bisa mengirimkan dalam waktu 2,5 hingga 3 tahun, namun itu dikembalikan lagi bagaimana permintaan pembeli," ujarnya.

Adapun salah satu permasalahan yang masih menghambat kontrak selesai dibuat adalah skema pembiayaan.

Pembelian 2 unit A400M oleh pemerintah Indonesia ini melibatkan berbagai pihak. Selain Pelita Air, PPI (Perusahaan Perdagangan Indonesia) juga disebut terlibat.

"Mereka sedang memikirkan pembiayaannya," kata perwakilan Airbus.

Penurunan kapasitas produksi tak pengaruhi

Airbus sendiri saat ini telah menurunkan kapasitas produksi A400M di pabriknya di Sevilla, Spanyol mulai Maret 2018 lalu. Hal itu dilakukan karena sejumlah A400M yang telah selesai dirakit, belum dikirim ke negara pemesannya.

Sejumlah pesawat pesanan itu masih membutuhkan perbaikan di gearbox dan bilah baling-baling, setelah ditemukan kelemahan usai diinvestigasi.

Namun penurunan tingkat produksi itu dikatakan perwakilan Airbus, tidak bakal mempengaruhi pesanan pesawat dari Indonesia, jika kontrak telah disepakati.

Penurunan kapasitas itu juga dikatakan demi melengkapi kebutuhan berbagai negara pemesan, daripada mengirim pesawat namun dikirim kembali untuk melakukan upgrade.

"Proyek ini adalah multi-nasional, banyak negara terlibat dengan berbagai kebutuhan berbeda, kami berupaya memenuhi semuanya," ujar juru bicara tersebut.

Pengembangan A400M memang melibatkan sejumlah negara di Eropa, seperti Spanyol, Jerman, dan Perancis.

India to Hold Naval Exercise with Vietnam

22 Mei 2018

NEW DELHI: India will hold its first naval exercise with Vietnam, as part of the overall strategy to steadily build military ties with nations in the Asia Pacific region with an eye firmly on a confrontationist and expansionist China, even as defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman is slated to visit Hanoi next month.

Three Indian warships on operational deployment to South East Asia and North West Pacific region, stealth frigate INS Sahyadri, missile corvette INS Kamorta and fleet tanker INS Shakti, will enter the Tien Sa Port (Danang) on Monday.

“From May 21 to 25, there will be a professional interaction between personnel of the two navies, official calls and interaction with dignitaries of the Vietnamese Government. On completion of the harbour phase, warships from the two navies would be undertaking the exercise,” said Navy spokesperson Captain D K Sharma.

With defence cooperation being a vital component of the “comprehensive strategic partnership” between the two countries, Sitharaman is scheduled to visit Vietnam in June to further bolster bilateral military ties. The chief of general staff of the Vietnam People's Army and the commander-in chief of Vietnam People's Navy are also slated to visit India later this year.

The two countries are wary of China’s aggressive tactics in Asia-Pacific, especially the contentious South China Sea, and have steadily cranked up their bilateral military ties over the last few years. 

There have also been a series of high-level visits to Vietnam, with PM Narendra Modi visiting Hanoi in September 2016 and announcing a new $500 million defence line of credit.



After inking a “joint vision statement on defence for 2015-2020” in May 2015, the two countries also decided to elevate their “strategic partnership” to “comprehensive strategic partnership” during Modi’s visit in September 2016.

India has also offered the BrahMos supersonic cruise missiles as well as the Akash surface-to-air missile defence systems to Vietnam.

India is also set to train Vietnamese fighter pilots to fly the Sukhoi-30 fighter jets, much like it has been tutoring sailors from that country on the complex art of operating Kilo-class submarines for the last four years, as earlier reported by TOI.

Apart from regular port calls by warships, the Indian Navy cooperates with the Vietnam People’s Navy on a wide range of issues from operational interactions and training to logistics support and exchange of experts.

India, of course, has also stepped up defence cooperation, ranging from expansion in military visits and exercises to training and technology-sharing, with other Southeast Asian countries like Singapore, Myanmar, Malaysia and Indonesia.

As for the South China Sea, India has repeatedly stressed the need for all to respect the freedom of navigation in international waters, right of passage and overflight, unimpeded commerce and access to resources in accordance with the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea.
