In 2003, Vietnam has ordered two batteries of S-300PMU1 to Russia, including a total of 12 launchers and 72 missiles.

The S300PMU1 is an advanced version of the first variant of the S-300 family air defense missile.

The S-300PMU1 mobile multichannel air defence missile system can defeat modem and future aircrafts, strategic cruise missiles, tactical battlefield ballistic missiles and other targets with a reflection surface up to 0.02 sq. m. flying at speeds up to 2.800 m/s in massive enemy air raids and heavy clutter and severe ECM environments.

The
S-300PMU1 air defense missile system can simultaneously engage up to 36 air targets by 72 missiles.

The 36D6-M mobile radar system is designed to detect air targets and to perform the friend-or-foe identification. The radar system is able to provide targeting and bearing of active jamming, integrated computer-aided systems of control and guidance of antiaircraft guided missile complexes.

The 36D6-M can detect flying targets to a maximum range of 115 km at flight altitude of 1,000m.

In November 2013, Vietnam and Russia signed 17 agreements aimed at boosting political, military and trade ties while increasing cooperation in the energy sector.

Russia's exports to Vietnam are dominated by oil products, machinery and weapons. Among the latter are fighter planes and six Kilo-class, cruise missile-equipped submarines, the first of which is due to be delivered to the Vietnamese navy early next year under a $2 billion deal signed in 2009. Two more of the Kilo-Class submarines will be delivered in 2014, Vietnamese state media has reported.
