Vietnam will receive two Project 11661 Gepard-3.9-class frigates built by Russia’s Zelenodolsk Shipyard in August and September this year.

"We are currently building two ships for Vietnam. The first frigate has already been put afloat. The second vessel will be floated out on May 25," Shipyard CEO Renat Mistakhov was quoted as saying by TASS on Tuesday. "We will deliver the two frigates to Vietnam in August and September."

The Vietnamese Navy received the first two Project 11661 frigates in 2011. A contract for the construction of another two Project 11661 ships was signed in 2012. The two ships were laid down in the autumn of 2013.
