    These photo is from the RTN integrated training in April 2007 where HTMS Chakri Naruebet paticipated. The official site released only a low-resolution photo.




    Why does Thailand have an aircraft carrier? I think its cool especially Thailand being a developing country.
    Having a carrier is often a luxery of the rich and powerful nations.

    Any pics of the Harriers?

    Mostly agree. The original idea of having carrier is the rescue mission and mobile helicopter airbase due to the wake of damage from typhoon 'Gay' sometime in 90s. If I remember correctly, RTN first intentions is to own some LHD, Which I support, but they changes the requirement later.

    After this sqn. of Harrier, we need to look for the replacement. Maybe some second-hand AV-8B or wait for F-35B. Hope our economic can support of this.

    We last seen the Harrier in Children's day in Jan 2007. But day do not often release its photo.

    PS. I'll find the Royal Guard Photo in my collection and post them later

    thnaks for the pics Skyman! I didn't knew anything about Chakri, if still was in service or not.
    it was made in Spain by Bazán, like R-11 Prince of Asturias, and it's quite similar.
    Are Royal Thai Navy pilots still flying the AV-8A supplied by Spanish Navy? they will need a replacement then.

    Yes, We lost three ships and also lost that navy battle. But I found some conflict between Thai and French history. Something like the condition of La Motte Picquet after the battle.

    In Thailand we alway say we totally tactically lost, but strategically win. It is base on the event after the battle when there are no more operation of French navy's ship in the gulf of Thailand. It's a different view toward this battle.

    Glad to share some information with you.

    Cheers

    Honestly, I don't know :P But I think RTN still fly them.

    Aside from the news source outside Thailand, there are no official decommission of this jet. We last seen them fly when the king of Spain visited RTN last year and in Children's day 2007 in Jan.

    But considers the age of the jet, we need to find some replacement soon.

    [*******Purple]Wow, after the last batch of Chinese warships, I didn't think you guys would go back to China. The new Pattani Class ships sound pimped out!
    [/COLOR]

    [FONT=Arial] The People’s Republic of China (PRC) last month delivered the first of two offshore patrol vessels (OPV) to the Royal Thai Navy (RTN), and also inked a US$115 million deal to supply 96 NORINCO-built WZ-551 6 x 6 armoured personnel carriers to the Royal Thai Army (RTA) under a counter-trade agreement.

    [/FONT] [FONT=Arial] The OPVs have been built by the China State Shipbuilding Corp’s (CSSC) Shanghai-based Hudong Zhonghua Shipyard under an agreement signed in May 2002. The first OPV is named HTMS Pattani (511) and it was delivered to Thailand on December 16. The second OPV, called HTMS Naratiwat (512), will be delivered this March. Both vessels were launched in 2004 and make extensive use of COTS technologies to keep the acquisition and maintenance costs low. Each OPV has a length of 95.5 metres, beamwidth of 11.6 metres, displaces 1,440 tonnes, is crewed by a complement of 84 personnel, and is powered by twin Rushton 16RK270 diesel engines driving twin controllable-pitch propellers. The armaments package comprises one OTOBREDA 76/62 main gun and twin 40mm secondary guns. Both OPVs also feature one rear helicopter deck capable of housing helicopters like the AgustaWestland-built Super Lynx Mk300.[/FONT]

    [FONT=Arial] The OPVs’ combat management system is STN ATLAS of Germany’s COSYS Mk1, which was selected in June 2003. STN Atlas was also the overall systems integrator. The fire-control systems include one TMX supplied by Oerlikon Contraves AG. Rohde & Schwarz has supplied the integrated communications system, while Raytheon Marine GmbH’s integrated platform and machinery management system has been installed. SELEX Sistemi Integrati was selected in April 2003 to supply two X-band RAN 30X/I mast-mounted naval surveillance radars worth Euros6 million. The RAN 30X/I has four operational modes: surface and air surveillance mode for small airborne/surface targets; navigation and helicopter control mode with high antenna rotation speed for navigation close to the coastline; over-the-horizon detection mode with low-antenna rotation speed and long-range detection capability; and anti-sea-skimming cruise missile detection mode, with high-antenna rotation speed to detect and track very small manoeuvring targets.

    [/FONT] [FONT=Arial] CSSC had earlier delivered four 1,924-tonne 05HT guided-missile frigates to the RTN in the early 1990s, comprising the HTMS Chaophraya (455), HTMS Bang Pakong (456), HTMS Kraburi (457) and HTMS Saiburi (458). In addition, CSSC supplied a new-build Hudong-Type R22T-class fleet replenishment tanker in the late 1990s. This tanker is 171 meters long and displaces 22,000 tonnes at full load. It also has a flight deck and a hangar for one helicopter.[/FONT]


    [*******Purple]Any arms purchases in the near future? Especially Chinese?[/COLOR]
