LAAD Defence and Security 2013: US mulls P-3 MPA sale to Vietnam
Correct me if iam rong, This deal might be first Military deal between these two nations.
Inducting these P-3s would make a great impact. They arent any other aircraft operational as capable has a P-3
The article mentioned that the first batch of P-3s maybe "non-weaponised." But the US and Vietnam can arrange for a 3rd party to weaponise these aircrafts. In any case, more than the operational capabilities that these alleged 6 P-3s will bring to the Vietnamese Navy, it is the strengthening of military relations between US and Vietnam that is the more important development here.
