Vietnam to order Dutch corvettes

Menno Steketee, Amsterdam - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
22 August 2013

Vietnam is to buy two corvettes from the Netherlands, Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding (DSNS) confirmed to IHS Jane's on 22 August.

DSNS has "reached an agreement in the negotiations for the delivery of two Sigma-class corvettes, Type 9814, to the Vietnamese Navy," the company stated.

Other sources say an official signing-ceremony is expected "sometime later this year". The value of the deal reportedly could reach EUR500 million (USD668 million), with the Dutch authorities partly responsible for funding the deal. No details have been officially divulged on the building programme, or its timeline, but it seems logical that one of the vessels will be built by DSNS in the Netherlands and the other in Vietnam, where Damen owns five commercial shipyards and is developing a sixth in Haiphong.

Briefing: Vietnam's surveillance and reconnaissance investment plans

Jon Grevatt, Bangkok - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
01 August 2013

A strategic requirement to enhance capability to secure and protect assets in the South China Sea is driving Vietnam to invest in the development and procurement of a range of indigenous and foreign C4ISR-related systems.

Vietnam's industrial capabilities in these areas are basic, given the country's traditional focus on land-based procurement, but a number of developments in 2012-13 suggest Hanoi has now recognised that enhanced surveillance and communications capabilities are critical in securing the country's rapidly expanding offshore assets.

These developments include: Vietnam's agreements in 2012 with Russia and Sweden to co-develop and produce in Vietnam unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs); several indigenous programmes undertaken by Vietnamese industry to develop and produce a range of small- to mid- range military UAV prototypes and the ground systems to control them; the Ministry of Defence's launch this year of a programme to procure off-the-shelf a foreign medium-altitude long-endurance UAV, with Israel Aerospace Industries' Heron thought to be under consideration; a production programme undertaken by the Military Telecommunication General Corporation (Viettel) this year of a new military communications system that is, according to state media, three to four times cheaper than imported devices; Viettel's development this year of an air traffic control system for the Vietnam People's Army (VPA) and its air and naval branches; Vietnam's procurement in 2012 of Airbus Military C-212-400 transport aircraft modified with maritime patrol mission kits; and Vietnam's plans, which emerged this year, to purchase unspecified Raytheon coastal defence radar systems and a de-weaponised version of the Lockheed Martin P-3 Orion maritime patrol aircraft.
