“The Vietnamese-built HQ-379 and HQ-380 corvettes with the Uran-E missile system became part of the Vietnamese naval force,” a defense industry source told the agency. Uran-E is capable of hitting targets at a distance of 130 km.
He recalled that "the first two corvettes of the development of the Central Maritime Design Bureau" Almaz "(included in USC) were supplied to the Vietnamese Navy in 2014 on the basis of a contract from the 2009 of the year." A total of 6 ships will be delivered.
According to the interlocutor, the new corvettes "became part of the 167-th brigade of the 2-th regional command, whose area of responsibility includes the waters of South Vietnam."
Vietnam also receives the 636 submarines under construction in Russia and the Gepard-type patrol ships.
