Bangladesh Air Force going to induct Chinese FD-2000 long-range surface-to-air missile defense system.

This acquisition will be activated just after deployment of the LY-80E medium-range air defense system. BAF currently has no such defensive military equipment rather some FM-90B short-range air defence missile systems in active service. FD-2000 is the export designation of the domestic Chinese version of HQ-9 long-range SAM system. It’s developed by the CPMIEC.

Bangladesh Armed Forces has seeking some affordable and cost-effective air defense systems, which can be integrated into country’s existing air defence command network. BAF previously evaluating some options and choose Chinese one. This SAM platform will be deployed to protect Bangladesh’s important civil-military installations around the country.

This long-range missile defense system has 200km of slant range. Can engage targets up to 27km altitude. Its main search radar can track 100 targets and designate 50 of them. Main fire control radar guide 6 interceptor missiles to hit 6 targets simultaneously. It is very much capable to operate under intensive enemy electronic jamming environment.

FD-2000 SAM system can intercept fighter aircraft, attack helicopters, UAVs as well as cruise missiles, ballistic missiles, air-to-ground missiles and stand-off range precision guided bombs too. Search and tracking radars have anti-stealth capabilities to track & shoot down stealth aircrafts.

In recent aggressive posture of the burmese military near Bangladeshi border has rattled the thoughts of military leaderships in Dhaka. Bangladesh Army was fully prepared to strike into burmese territory due their violations of international laws and diplomatic gestures. Hundreds of thousands innocent Rohingya peoples has been murdered by the military junta of myanmar. Almost 1 million of them fled to Bangladesh to save their life. Burma clearly committed history’s one of the most brutal genocide against this ethnic minority. General Secretary of the United Nations declared this act as the “text book example of genocide”.

After killing hundred thousands of Rohingya peoples burmese army started to provoke Bangladesh by violating the airspace several times. They frequently did it. Bangladesh Army deployed heavy artillery, troops, combat helicopters, riverine brigades along the burmese border but refrained from order full scale operation due to the absence of an effective air defense system. Bangladesh Air Force’s air power is not enough to give air support for such an operation. Hence army stopped. By analyzing all the recent development in the region Bangladesh harshly felt her needs for long-range, deep coverage surface-to-air missile systems. And now, FD-2000 LRSAM is coming.

Who Giving WEAPONS to Burma: Review of myanmar army Arms Suppliers

World community urged israel-india not to sell weapons to burma but both countries ignoring burma’s war crimes against innocent Rohingya People.

Burma’s main weapons and military equipment supplier is China. India and Israel are positioned at, respectively, second & third. Peace loving world community urged to these countries not to sell weapons to burmese army. United States, Australia and European Union countries don’t sell military equipment to myanmar army.

Except china, india and Israel others like Russia, North Korea, Japan, Pakistan also sold weapons & military equipment to burmese military junta in the past few years.

China selling fighter jets, military transport aircrafts, warships, missiles, artillery guns, main battle tanks, small and medium weapons, electronic surveillance equipment etc. China also provides some military technologies to burmese army. North Korea provides hwosung short range ballistic missiles.

India sold light tank, artillery cannon, military helicopters, rifles and some other small weapons regularly. New delhi also maintain a close military tie with myanmar military junta.

Israel continuously supporting burmese military’s upgradation processes by modernizing burmese air force’s obsolete F-7 fighter jets, sold light weapons, electronic equipment, night vision systems, small gunboats, main battle tanks, and like other military hardware.

On the other hand Russia also doing good business with Yangon. Moscow sold fighter jets, tanks, armored personnel carriers, transport helicopters, attack helicopters, assault rifles, aerial weapons, and many other equipment.

Burma’s recent crimes of ethnic cleansing of Rohingya Peoples created world anger against them. United Nation’s secretary general urged burmese authority to stop atrocities against Muslim Rohingya Peoples in Arakan which is now renamed to rakhine state.

Due to burma’s ethnic cleansing operation against Rohingyas, a huge flow of refugees towards Bangladesh attracted world media eyes. Humanitarian crisis evolving every hour as there’s scarcity of food, medicines for injured and shelters.   World community must end this horrible operation of burmese army against these innocent poor Rohingya peoples. Otherwise a minority will be erased from their own soil and a long-term refugee crisis will be created.

Bangladesh Navy Buying Two Chinese Navy Guided Missile Frigate With “Hot Transfer” To Increase Naval Fire Power To Protect Sea Area

More modern guided missile frigates coming to Bangladesh Navy until the Chinese Type 054 air defence frigates be inducted into the fleet, those will be built at Chittagong Dry Dock with Chinese technical help

Two Chinese Navy multirole frigates will be inducted by Bangladesh Navy in 2018. Maybe Type 053H3 or Type 054 are coming to BN. Bangladesh increasing its naval fire power faster to protect total 118,813 square km of sea waters. China helping Bangladesh to build a formidable navy in the Bay of Bengal.

Bangladesh seeks more modern air-defence frigates and capable littoral combat warships. And those ships should be built locally in Khulna Shipyard and or in Chittagong Dry Dock Limited. This will give commercial off-set to Bangladesh.

In future Bangladesh Navy will be the second largest powerful navy with large fleet of surface combatants in the South Asia and one of the most powerful in Asia. Naval aviation with Maritime Patrol Aircraft (MPA) and Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) is being shaped and sub-surface force started its journey with two chinese submarines.

Bangladesh has to protect it maritime boundary from illegal fishing, illegal human trafficking, drugs & goods smuggling through naval route from Burma. Large portion of drugs smuggled in Bangladesh from burma through Bay of Bengal.

There are plenty of hydrocarbons under the sea bed of the Bay of Bengal. Bangladesh got its right to explore those non-living marine assets from continental shelf. Previously in 2008 myanmar navy sneaked into Bangladeshi territorial waters and started to survey for hydrocarbon resources. Bangladesh navy goes on and made Burmese ran away. After that Bangladesh Navy decided to enhance its naval power with various types of naval platforms.  According to some credible sources, Bangladesh going to build Chinese PLAN Type 056 Jiangdao class stealth ASW corvettes in Khulna Shipyard and PLAN PLAN Type 054A Jiangkai II multipurpose guided missile stealth frigates in Chittagong Dry Dock Limited for BN.

When the ships will be inducted into the fleet Bangladesh Navy will be the second largest surface combatant force in the South Asia and one of the most powerful navy in Asia. Yet those planning to come into fruition, though, Bangladesh expanding naval force very rapidly with high-tech equipment.

China Offered Bangladesh Air Force J-10B Fighter Jet, Y-20 Heavy Lift Transport & KJ-200 AEW&CS Aircrafts worth $1Bn in Soft Loan to Counter India-Bangladesh Defence Agreement

China has been the major weapons & military hardware supplier of Bangladesh for long, where recently india offered some training & small arms. Delhi pressurized Dhaka to accept the their loan and other offers which generals in of Bangladesh Armed Forces rejected

China giving $1 billion to Bangladesh Air Force to buy Chengdu J-10B, Y-20 heavy lift transport aircraft and many more. A Russian blog and East Pendulum twitter account tweeted that Bangladesh and China negotiating each-other for $1 bn arms deal almost all of which is related to aircrafts. China offered 16 Chengdu J-10B, 1 Xian Y-20 heavy lift military transport aircraft, 1 Shaanxi KJ-200 AEW&C aircraft, and 7 K-8W Karakorum intermediate jet trainer aircrafts to Bangladesh Air Force.

China trying to counter india’s $500 million loan to Bangladesh to buy Russian weapons. It is now prestige issue for Beijing to maintain high-ground regarding Dhaka. Delhi offered military training, arms and other supports during indian defense minister monohor porikar’s Dhaka visit, which Bangladesh Armed Forces rejected then.

Still this is a rumor, though, experts believe that what is rumored regarding China-Bangladesh military dealings is true. Because previously Bangladesh bought Chinese fighter trainers to train BAF’s combat pilots. Many Bangladeshi pilots got training in China for flying J-10 fighter jets. And this is expected for many days that BAF would buy Chengdu J-10B jets in some number.

As BAF currently operating Lockheed Martin C-130J Hercules medium transport aircrafts and need a bigger one, they choose newly developed Chinese heavy lift Y-20 military transport aircraft which is analogous to American C-17 Globemaster III.
