Vietnam has ordered 64 Russian T-90S/SK main battle tanks with an estimated price tag of $250 million.
The order comes amidst growing focus placed on the country's air force and navy as Vietnam's security planners pay ever-increasing attention to China's actions in nearby waters, Forecast International reported Monday. The Vietnam People's Army operates a mix of Soviet-designed main battle tanks, most of which were acquired from different countries producing variants under licensed agreement such as Poland (T-72s) and China (T-59s).
But besides the aforementioned T-72s the vast bulk of the Army's tank inventory is mothballed and obsolete. The T-90S tanks are likely to be used as replacements for the aging T-55s, few of which remain operational.
US Coast Guard has transferred a High Endurance Cutter to the Vietnam Coast Guard Thursday morning.
