    Vietnam's government has confirmed it has taken delivery of a batch of short-range ramjet supersonic cruise missiles from India.

    Foreign ministry spokeswoman Le Thi Thu Hang said at a press briefing on Thursday that Vietnam is developing defense cooperation with India to allow the country to pursue its defense policies.

    “The arms purchase is in line with Vietnam’s peaceful national defense policies aimed at protecting the country,” Hang said.

    She said the strategic comprehensive partnership between Vietnam and India is growing in various areas and contributing to peace, stability and development in the region and the world.

    The BrahMos missile was developed by Russia's NPO Mashinostroeyenia and India’s Defense Research and Development Organization. It is the world’s fastest anti-ship cruise missile in operation, traveling at speeds of 3,400-3,700 kilometers per hour.

    The three-ton missiles can be launched from submarines, ships, aircraft or land.

    India has already supplied patrol vessels to Vietnam and has been providing military training, but the missiles are the first arms trade deal between the two countries.

    Details of the value of the deal have not been revealed.

    Vietnam is building up its military amid tensions in the disputed East Sea, which is known internationally as the South China Sea. The country has also ordered six Kilo-class diesel-electric submarines from Russia in a deal worth $2 billion. The latest arrived last January.

    Its a really good move by BJP Govt. The stupid Conggies were reluctant to do this for the fear of up setting China. The same China which gave Nukes and delivery missiles to Pakistan. We must sell many more such systems to Taiwan also. FCUK these chinis.

    Now this is interesting, finally India is breaking away from its Nehruvian pacificst legacy and inflicting a cost on its adversories. The great game has just begun.

    + Why is VN calling the 900km range Brahmos "short range" I wonder.... :azn:

    MTCR is the reason but VN has got 500KM range missiles. Japan from its islands and VN from its borders can now target any ship in SCS.
