    Hi guys! Can anyone confirm this news?


    Vietnam and India have reached agreement with India for six modern stealth destroyer named P28.

    Vietnam and India’s recent military cooperative relationship are tighter than ever. The result of that relationship is that Vietnam has agreed to purchase six modern stealth destroyers.

    With the purchase of these 6 stealth P28 destroyers, it would be the largest weapons buying contracts in the history of Vietnam’s army. But the information does not indicate the value of the contract, delivery times, etc.

    Stealth destroyer P28 is extremely modern, armed with Barak missiles considered one of the most advanced missiles in the world. In addition, P28 also carry about 16 Brahmos cruise missiles, RBU-6000 anti-submarine bombs, SMERCH-2, along with the other weapons such as Oto Melara Super Rapid Gun 76 mm cannon system, 4 AK-630 close combat machine guns etc.

    Besides, it is equipped with a multi-function radar reconnaissance system MF-STAR EL/M-2248 by IAI-Elta. designed for the 32 Barak anti-aircraft missiles which was developed in 2006, with the successful firing of the missile in Israel in November 2014. The 170 km Radar MF-STAR has the ability to simultaneously track multiple targets at the same time on the sea and can engage enemy aircraft at a distance of 350 km maximum.

    In addition, the new ships are also equipped with radar for aerial reconnaissance of the IAI-Elta EL/M-2238 with S band range and aerial search radar Thales LW-08 D-band range.

    With this, Vietnam's naval power will increase dramatically.

    Can anyone confirm that P28 is destroyer and not corvette? :frusty:
    Anyway, it's confirmed almost.
    Discussion on many forums.
    Neutral on American, British, Russian and Chinese (but frustrated on pakistani forums. They get News of India before Indians).

    Philippines too is a country who can order but deal is yet to be finalized.
    We have to compete with others yet.
