Vietnam Navy currently lacks anti-submarine helicopters, so far, many miltary experts forecast that Viet Nam government will buy many MH-60R Seahawk Helicopters from United States
At now, in navy filed, the Ka-28 helicopter in Vietnam is currently only a type of unit, purely for anti-submarine functions. Russia introduced Ka-52K, which can attack the water surface but no longer resists groundwater.
In 2015, Jane’s Defence magazine announced that we have talked about buying the AW159 Wildcat helicopter, but it has not yet reached its destination.
urrently, according to the assessment, the best candidate for the Navy is the US-made MH-60R Seahawk, which meets all criteria, such as highly reliable and exceptionally competitive prices for superior functionality.
Compared with China’s Z-9D, the MH-60R excels in voyage, payload and avionics. In addition to anti-submarine warfare or anti-surface missions, it also carries the AGM-114 Hellfire air defense missile to support the Navy’s firepower, which is the world’s best three-in-one helicopter. Nowadays.
The defense relationship between Vietnam and the United States has made tremendous progress. Buying satellites is no longer a big obstacle, especially when the United States expresses its hope that we will purchase weapons. As a means to balance trade balance.
If everything is normal, in the near future many MH-60R perspectives exist before the P-3C Orion or the F-16 Falcon fighter is feasible
