Azerbaidjan : la marine azeri aurait commandé 12 patrouilleurs rapides israéliens (6 Shaldag Mk V et 6 Saar 62)

Azerbaidjan : la marine azeri aurait commandé 12 patrouilleurs rapides israéliens (6 Shaldag Mk V et 6 Saar 62) | Newsletter navale | Scoop.it

IHS Jane's can confirm that an Israel Shipyards order to deliver six Shaldag Mk V patrol boats and six Saar 62 offshore patrol vessel (OPVs), an order reportedly for two separate customers, in fact came from the same customer - the Azerbaijan Coast Guard (Sahil Mühafizsin).

This development came to light following the release on 18 July 2014 of images relating to the commissioning of a new 13,000 m 2 naval shipyard, staffed by nearly 100 specialist workers, at Turkan in Baku. The images showed details of the ongoing work on the vessels.

So far the new facility - itself also believed to have been built by Israel Shipyards - has constructed two 32.65 m, 95 ton Shaldag Mk V fast attack craft (pennants S301 and S302) using kits supplied by Israel Shipyards.

L'Azerbaidjan intéressé par l'achat de sous-marins type Chang Bogo (variante sud-coréenne des 209)... | Newsletter navale | Scoop.it

Azerbaijan has reportedly expressed an interest in buying $3 billion worth of weaponry from South Korea, including several items for its nascent navy. That's according to a Korean newspaper report citing South Korean lawmakers and passed on by Azerbaijan news agency APA. Azerbaijan's shopping list reportedly includes two submarine boats, naval destroyers, transport ships, T-50 training planes, attack helicopters, K-9 self-propelled artillery vehicle, drones, and fire control systems. The Azerbaijanis reportedly made clear their intentions during a visit of South Korean parliamentarians to Baku in May.

But the Korean story points out two reservations that Seoul has about such a sale: the danger of angering Russia and the fear of destabilizing the South Caucasus. One of the lawmakers, Kim Kwan-Jin, said "We still have to decide for ourselves, is it worth it to deliver arms to a country which has a territorial dispute with another government," he said, referring to the conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia over the territory of Nagorno Karabakh. But he added: "Azerbaijan expressed a very strong interest and desire to buy our weapons." (Note: though the news stories out there identify Kim as a member of parliament, South Korea's defense minister has the same name and it's not clear if it's the same person.) And the South Korean ministry of foreign affairs is reportedly "generally against" the sale, recommending that the defense ministry "show special caution and restraint."

It wouldn't be South Korea's first military business deal on the Caspian: Seoul has donated some secondhand patrol boats to Kazakhstan, and has been in talks with Kazakhstan's navy regarding the sale of corvettes and to build a new shipyard on Kazakhstan's Caspian coast.

It sounds like there are enough reservations in Seoul that this deal won't go through, at least at the volume that Baku apparently wants. But it's some interesting insight into Azerbaijan's wish list, especially for its Caspian navy.
