    they need submarine training and we are giving it, just like Pakistan needed missile, fighter, tanks, etc and China supplied it.

    BTW we are about to retire hundreds of Prithvi missile with good shelf life, may be we should start giving training to Vietnam for prithvi missiles too.

    A natural thing to happen since they have Russian subs and we have the expertise!

    It is just bilateral assistance to a friendly country as any nation would extend.

    Enough of this strategic partnerships and technical assistance. We need to take this relationships to next level . I am waiting for the news when vietnamese have Brahmos in their arsenal and India will have direct assistance in their missile program.

    One step is enough for a start, we've had the start. I hope there's more to come.
    For an eye used to seeing the slow elephantine Indian movements, the recent turn of events announce a clear policy shift from India. Something very uncharacteristic of us .. yet good anyways :D

    Hail "Look East" !!

    Best would be to ask the Vietnamis, unfortunately not many of them around here :p
    Whats is the geographic/terrain posturing at Vietnam China border? That could tell us what they ought to buy/order .. in effect what we could sell them ;)

    This probably for the Kilos that Russia is selling to them.

    We can sell Arjun tank, nag missile, LCA, prithvi, pinaka, DRDO AWAC and radars all export versions, remember China has sold all this to Pakistan in the name of weapon sales and right to defence. We can start credit line for them and nothing is better then paying chinan same coin.

    Okay, you do realize that Russia is an important strategic partner apart from being our major arms supplier.....Are we in any position to antagonize the Russians?
    Furthermore, giving away certain weapons like the Brahmos and competing with the Russian products directly for a market are completely different things, I am averse to the latter.

    We have to play our cards correctly and smartly we have to get max benefit from Uncle and we have to tell Russians that if China grows then then they will become number three power of world from present number two spot, therefore work with us to maintain status quo and allow us to arm our brother in need Vietnam.

    In future we should as and when AAD and PAD ship is ready, we should send it to Vietnam to protect it interest against any missile attack from PRC.
