    India aims to supply BrahMos cruise missiles to Vietnam

    Rahul Bedi, New Delhi - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
    01 June 2016


    India plans to provide Vietnam with varied defence equipment, including BrahMos cruise missiles, in a bid to counter Chinese armament companies equipping several militaries in South Asia and the Indian Ocean region, according to Indian defence industry officials.

    To further this offer and strengthen bilateral strategic ties, Indian Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar is travelling to Hanoi in early June accompanied by a 15-20 member team comprising private and public sector defence manufacturers.

    "The Indian defence delegation to Vietnam will further the joint development and production of a range of military equipment such as small arms, missile and naval systems as well as assorted ammunition," an industry official told IHS Jane's .

    not shocking India has been trying to improve defence relations over the last couple years to counter China, especially with the recent South China Sea Dispute

    China keeps supporting Maoist rebels in India, now the Indians are getting some pay back.

    Vietnam is an important country to watch in the next 10 years. Their economy will do very well as China's manufacturing costs increase, Vietnam is a good location to move factories to. They still have low labor costs compared to China. As Vietnam becomes more and more important to India, the U.S, and Japan it will certainly rise. These countries need a powerful Vietnam to help counter balance China. This Indian deal along with the US lifting the arms embargo on Vietnam are very significant. I would like to see if Vietnam continues to buy equipment from Russia.

    Vietnam has cut down on the procurements from Russia, though they are still buying stuff. I have read a defense update saying they were interested in buying the JAS-39 or the Dassault Rafale. I know they acquired the French CAESAR SPH over the 2S19 Msta.

    India cannot sell the BrahMos without approval from Russia. Its a JV between the 2 countries.
