This morning, the Vietnam Navy held a national flag-raising ceremony for two submarines Kilo 186 Da Nang and Kilo 187 Ba Ria – Vung Tau.

These are the last two out of 6 Project 636 Kilo submarines, part of a contract worth nearly 2 billion USD that Vietnam signed with Russia in 2009 to build a regular naval force and improve maritime protection capacity.

The 3M-54E anti-ship missile has a maximum range of 220 km.

When about 60 km away from the target, the ARGS-54E active radar probe will be activated to automatically search for the target based on information loaded before launch and the inertial navigation system.

In the final phase of approaching the target, the missile flew only about 5 m above the water surface and continuously changed its trajectory, making interception extremely difficult.

Although the launch mass is just over 1.5 tons, the 3M-54E missile is equipped with a warhead weighing up to 450 kg, enough to destroy large surface ships.

Besides the 3M-54E model, Russia also equips the 3M-54E1 version for the Klub-S system.

The 3M-14E ground attack version is equipped with the GLONASS global positioning system and inertial navigation system, and the ARGS-14E radar detector has a range of 20 km to capture targets with high radar reflectivity.

The missile uses an altimeter and terrain matching system, allowing it to fly close to the terrain to minimize the possibility of detection, giving the enemy less time to react.

Russia’s domestic 3M-14 model has a range of 2,000 to 2,500 km, while the export version only has a maximum range of 300 km according to the provisions of the Missile Technology Control Treaty (MTCR).
