Indian Navy to Train Vietnamese Naval Personnel

The cooperation between Vietnam and India is expanding steadily as the two countries broaden their defense ties.

Namely, the Vietnamese Navy asked its Indian counterpart to train its naval personnel on Russian-built kilo-class submarines, as reported by The Asian Age.

Russia handed over the first of six Russian-built Kilo class submarines, named Ha Noi, to Vietnam on November 7.  The sub was ordered under a project signed in 2009 in Saint Petersburg.

The Indian Navy also wants to sell the BrahMos supersonic missile to Vietnam.

The missile can be launched from submarines, ships, aircraft or land. It is a joint venture between the Republic of India’s Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) and Russian Federation’s NPO Mashinostroeyenia that have together formed BrahMos Aerospace Private Limited.

What is more, the Indian Navy had earlier been given the privilege to drop anchor at the Vietnamese Nha Trang port during a goodwill visit, becoming one of the few to be able to do that.

The cooperation could also be extended to shipbuilding industry, claim the local media.
