Tom notes: You just posted about the Thai submarine purchase.
The following website lists number of submarines by country:
Vietnam 3 (a more recent source lists 4 + 2 under construction)
Indonesia 2 (+3 under construction)
While Thailand has zero submarines, Thailand’s neighbors all have submarines. The military’s acquisition should be seen in this context, which, to my knowledge, no one has raised in Thailand’s foreign language press.
