Global Firepower's information is clearly only a reference, for example, Vietnam has no real attack helicopters since the Mi-24A fleet received a retirement book, but the report is Give the numbers a lot to surprise.

In addition, if the number of such categories is added, this number will exceed 278, the reason for which the explanation is likely to exist between the categories.

Typically, the Su-30MK2 can fit into the fight group and be a ground-sea attack. Similarly, among the 161 mechanical transports there will be both the C-295M and the Mi-8/17 helicopter.


According to Global Firepower, the Vietnamese People's Navy is currently ranked 36th out of 110 countries and territories to be considered.
