As previously reported, the Damen Shipyards Group reached an agreement in 2013 for building the Vietnamese Navy’s two corvettes of the SIGMA 9814 project (in the designation of the project, the number "98" means the length of the ship in meters, and "14" - width). The ships will be equipped with modern Western weapons. Construction of one ship, presumably, will be carried out at the enterprise Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding (DSNS) in the Dutch Vlissingen, and the second corvette, apparently, should be assembled in Vietnam at one of the enterprises Damen.


Based on previously published information and submitted on Vietship 2014 exhibition model, corvette project SIGMA 9814 will be equipped with anti-ship missile system MBDA Exocet MM40 Block 3 (two chetyrehkonteynernye launchers), anti-aircraft missiles MBDA MICA VL (12 vertical launchers), 76- mm / 62 universal Oto Melara Super Rapid artillery installation, two 30-mm Oto Melara MARLIN-WS X-guns and the Ka-28 anti-submarine helicopter (and also, probably, 324-mm anti-torpedoes). Corvettes will receive the most advanced radio electronic systems manufactured by Thales Netherlands, including the TACTICOS ASMU, the SMART-S Mk 2 general detection radar and the STING EO Mk 2 electronic fire control system.
