Internet pictures released yesterday shows the delivery of Ukrainian-made 3D search radar ST68UM (36D6-M) in the port of Saigon, Vietnam.

The S-300PMU1 mobile multichannel air defence missile system can defeat modern and future aircrafts, strategic cruise missiles, tactical battlefield ballistic missiles and other targets with a reflection surface up to 0.02 sq. m. flying at speeds up to 2.800 m/s in massive enemy air raids and heavy clutter and severe ECM environments.

Chinese media has reported extensively on the up gradation and modernization of Vietnamese Armed Forces and the political, military, security, and economic relations Vietnam is developing with Russians, Americans, Japanese ,Indians , Australians and the Philippines.

This radar can be used with anti-aircraft missile complexes, as the Russian made S-300 surface-to-air defense missile system.Vietnamese government had ordered two batteries of S-300PMU1 to Russia, including a total of 12 launchers and 72 missiles in 2003 under a bilateral agreement.

The S300PMU1 is an advanced version of the first variant of the S-300 family air defense missile.The S-300PMU1 air defense missile system can simultaneously engage up to 36 air targets by 72 missiles.
The 36D6-M mobile radar system is designed to detect air targets and to perform the friend-or-foe identification. The radar system is able to provide targeting and bearing of active jamming, integrated computer-aided systems of control and guidance of antiaircraft guided missile complexes.

The 36D6-M can detect flying targets to a maximum range of 115 km at flight altitude of 1,000m.In November 2013, Vietnam and Russia signed 17 agreements aimed at boosting political, military and trade ties while increasing cooperation in the energy sector.Russia’s exports to Vietnam are dominated by oil products, machinery and weapons. Among the latter are fighter planes and six Kilo-class, cruise missile-equipped submarines, the first of which is due to be delivered to the Vietnamese navy early next year under a $2 billion deal signed in 2009. Two more of the Kilo-Class submarines will be delivered in 2014, Vietnamese state media has reported.
