Vietnam requests Indian Navy to train personnel | The Asian Age
Vietnam Takes Delivery of First Kilo Attack Boat | USNI News
Will this Govt that is so concerned about what China thinks and does, send anyone to train or have them across to be trained?
Just as a practical matter, why do Russians not give training on Russian boats?
Why can't we share the same kind of relation with Vietnam as China does with Pakistan??
I think the statement meant 'since' April.
I also think training might have been included in the package they are paying for their Kilos.
Turning to India might signify that Russians are charging higher fees for training or Vietnam wants to train addl. personnel on Kilo platform.
India, having operated Kilos for a long time is a natural choice outside Russia and Vietnam has a defense understanding with us under which we have committed regular exchanges for personnel of other fields also.
Could it be because of distance and money?
It could also be that India has greater experience in warm waters.
Because of the following reason:

The "training assistance" news is quite vague to comment on with any acceptable form of accuracy. The first and foremost question is what type of training do they want?
A) Do they want training to operate and maintain the subs?
B) Or Do they want training in operational tactics for these silent killers?
Depending on the answer, we might or might not be able to assist them. If it is A they want then sure, we could arrange for it if we have the political will. In fact I'd expect this training to already be imparted to the crews whilst in Russia.
If it is B they want, then well, we have a problem.
No navy, however close they are, shares with the others its standard operating procedure or tactics (even NATO has only a general SOP setup). Every country must learn it alone. And in any case, we can't risk out tactics being monitored and deciphered by the Chinese or even the USN due to incompetence or inexperience of a foreign crew. Our entire fleet of sub surface assets could be rendered ineffective if the PLAN understand our tactics.
The Vietnamese have just acquired a sub. It will be many years, even decades, before they can put up a proper sub warfare strategy. And then, they also need to build up the acoustic database of the PLAN ships, which in itself is a very painstaking process.
They are already getting training in our boats for some time, this news is just a formal way of Gov decorating it ...
