This is an information gained special attention of many other countries. From the presence of Vietnamese Navy, Bastion-P complexes with anti-ship cruise missiles, supersonic Yakhont has quickly become the "shield of steel" of Vietnam.

Known as one of the weapons on shore marine world's most modern, combined arms Bastion-P missile missiles Yakhont supersonic anti-ship.

Design of Bastion-P allows it to float force to destroy enemy ships in all weather conditions, even in noisy environments enhanced electron.

Yakhont missile weighs about 3 tons, 8.9 m long, 0.7 m trunk diameter, 1.7 m wingspan. Shells are designed with large 4-door navigation in near the tail, the nose is in the air intakes for engine operation.

Yakhont jet engine supersonic static straight line speed allow more than 2 times the speed of sound. With such a large maximum velocity, very difficult opponents and react easily destroyed by explosive fragmentation warhead weighing 200-250kg.

According to international experts, Yakhont has the ability to destroy large warships with a single shot.

Navigation system, after leaving the Yakhont missile launchers will fly under the regime inertial navigation programmed. In the approach phase target, lead investor active radar (on missiles) will activate the search, detect targets at a distance of 75km.

In particular, at this stage missiles fly low altitude from sea clinging 5-15m. This factor is also enhanced survivability against missile air defense system on enemy warships.

Yakhont missile's range depends on flight mode: fly high orbit - low to allow the mixture to reach a range of 300 kilometers; low orbital flight - low gain range of 120km.

Yakhont missiles designed to integrate extensively on a variety of platforms (surface ships, submarines, aircraft, ground platform). Currently equipped with Yakhont mainly on coastal defense systems on land Bastion-P. A Bastion-P system can protect a coastline of 600km.

According to information from the Russian side, in 2011 Vietnam has received two battalions sea defense system in the Russian Bastion-P.

Armed with basic Bastion-P system includes: 4 self-propelled launcher vehicles carrying K340P (2 rounds each truck Yakhont missiles); vehicles carrying ammunition reserves; radar fire control Monolit-B; vehicle commander and logistics facilities, technical support.

MOSCOW, February 28 (RIA Novosti)


The crew of a Su-30 fighter that crashed earlier on Tuesday in Russia’s Far East reported an engine fire before the crash, a spokesman for the Main Military Investigative Directorate said.


The Su-30MK2 fighter jet crashed 130 km northeast of Komsomolsk-na-Amure during a post-construction test flight. Both pilots ejected safely, although one of them was hurt on landing.


“While executing acceleration to a maximum speed, the first pilot reported a fire in the right engine,” the spokesman said. “The flight controller immediately ordered the crew to eject.”


“The investigators are taking all necessary steps to establish the cause of the crash,” the official said.


The aircraft belonged to the Komsomolsk-na-Amure factory where Su-30s are manufactured.


The Russian military earlier said that the plane had been built for export.


Su-family fighters constitute the bulk of Russia's arms exports.


Variants of Su-30 Flanker fighters are in service with air forces in several foreign countries, including India, Indonesia, China, Algeria, Vietnam and Venezuela.

La Russie vend 6 chasseurs à l’Indonésie pour 500 millions de dollars

11 janvier 2012 par Edouard Maire / info-aviation

En décembre 2011, la Russie a conclu avec l’Indonésie un contrat portant sur la livraison de six chasseurs Su-30MK2. Un pied de nez aux américains qui sont liés par l’embargo sur les ventes d’armes imposé à Jakarta.

« Ce contrat de 500 millions de dollars est important, parce qu’il renforce la position de la Russie sur le marché indonésien des armements tant convoité par les Américains qui proposent leurs anciens chasseurs F-16 aux Indonésiens », a déclaré le 10 janvier à Moscou le directeur du Centre d’analyse des stratégies et technologies Rouslan Poukhov.

Le contrat jette en outre les bases de la coopération russo-indonésienne dans la construction d’avions civils, notamment de l’avion MS-21, a ajouté M.Poukhov. En 2012, la Russie doit commencer la livraison de nouveaux moyens-courriers Sukhoi SuperJet-100 à l’Indonésie.

La Russie avait déjà signé un contrat de vente de trois avions de combat Su-30MK2 et de Su-27SKM en 2007. En 2003, la Russie a également signé un contrat de vente de deux avions Su-27SKM et deux avions de combat SU-30MK.

Le Ministre de la Défense de l’Indonésie Purnomo Yusgiantoro avait déclaré en octobre 2010 que son pays avait besoin d’un escadron complet d’avions de combat composé de 16 avions de type Sukhoï, ainsi que de Su-30MK2 pour sa Marine.

Depuis l’embargo des États-Unis sur l’achat d’armes à l’Indonésie en sanction contre les violations des droits de l’Homme (Timor oriental), l’Indonésie se tourne vers la Russie et la Chine pour se procurer des avions de combat et d’entraînement. Au total, la Russie a déjà fourni dix chasseurs Sukhoi, dix hélicoptères Mi-35, 14 hélicoptères Mi-17, 17 blindés de transport de troupes TMP-3F, 48 blindés BTR-80A et 9.000 fusils d’assaut Kalachnikov AK-102 à l’Indonésie. Quant à la Chine, elle a proposé d’exporter ses avions de combat légers FTC-2000 à Jakarta.

Russia expects to sell military equipment worth $11 billion in 2011, with aviation activities likely to account for up to 50% of this total.


Sergei Kornev, head of the Rosoboronexport delegation at last month's Paris air show, said deliveries of Russian-made combat aircraft and air-launched weapons are continuing to Algeria, India and Vietnam.


Algerian pilots are in Russia being trained on the Yakovlev Yak-130 advanced jet trainer (below), with the aircraft likely to be delivered in 2011-12, while Vietnam has recently received four of its 20 new Sukhoi Su-30MK2s.


China has recently ordered 154 more AL-31F engines for its Su-27/30-series fighters, and is in negotiations to buy more to power its Chengdu J-20s.


Despite the RSK MiG-35's elimination from India's medium multi-role combat aircraft competition, Kornev said Rosoboronexport will continue to offer the type for around $10 million less than the larger Su-30MK. "The Sukhoi is a huge airframe and not every country needs this," he said. "Many would rather go for a smaller platform with lower cost."


Away from the combat aircraft sector, a delayed contract to supply Jordan with two stretched-fuselage Ilyushin Il-76MF transports should be fulfilled this year. Both airframes have been completed and are at the Ramenskoye aerodrome in Zhukovsky near Moscow. One has already finished factory- and customer-acceptance trials, and both should be delivered later this year.


Deliveries to the Chinese navy of Kamov Ka-31 radar pickets and additional Ka-28 anti-submarine warfare helicopters have been completed, while Russia and the USA are close to finalising a $350 million order to buy 21 Mil Mi-17 transports for Afghanistan. Deliveries of the Kazan-built aircraft should start next year.
