Wait and see i guess.
    Can those be upgraded easily?

    That is the Serna class... looks like a capable vessel.

    Would be rather cheaper than Zubr, but also less flexible in the number of places it can land troops, vehicles, or equipment.

    Yep.

    Zubr is much, much larger! Too large for what Vietnam needs.

    Russia to build new ships for Vietnamese Navy on schedule

    JAKARTA, November 6. /TASS/. Two Gepard 3.9 class frigates that Russia is building for Vietnam will be delivered to the customer on schedule - in late 2016, a representative of the shipbuilding company told TASS on Thursday at the Indo Defence international exhibition.

    “A couple of such frigates were built for Vietnam in earlier, now the second pair is being built that differs in the weapons and military equipment. The delivery deadline is late 2016,” chief engineer of the Zelenodolsk Design Bureau Yevgeny Matveyev said.

    The designer said the new frigates for the foreign customer will have, in addition to the surface countermeasure systems, antisubmarine warfare equipment. “To date, there are no factors for non-fulfilment of the obligations, the shipbuilding is going on schedule,” Matveyev said.

    The construction of the second pair of the Gepard 3.89 class frigates with antisubmarine weapons for the Vietnamese Navy continues the work of the JSC A.M. Gorky Zelenodolsk Plant within the framework of international military-technical co-operation. The contract on the construction of the first pair of the warships of project 11661 was concluded in 2005. The plant successfully fulfilled all the building stages - the warships were delivered in 2011.

    The new pair of frigates differs from the previous ships by antisubmarine weapons and advanced high-performance propulsion system.

    Vietnam Receives Two Russian-made Submarines

    Vietnam on Saturday celebrated the replenishment of its navy with two additional kilo-class submarines, which were produced in Russia.

    At the commissioning ceremony at Cam Ranh Naval Base in Khanh Hoa Province, south of Hanoi, the national flag was raised on both vessels.

    During his official speech, Rear Admiral Pham Hoai Nam, the Vietnam People's Navy commander, said the submarines will signify a new stage in upgrading the navy and the fighting capabilities of the Vietnam People's Army.

    The submarines' names — 184-Hai Phong and 185-Khanh Hoa — were originally the names of Vietnamese coastal cities.

    There will be two more 636 Varshavyanka Kilo-class submarines arriving in Vietnam to complete the 6-item deal. The diesel-powered vessels were ordered in 2009 from Admiralty Shipyard in St. Petersburg for $2 billion.

    The first two submarines, the 182-Hanoi and 183-Ho Chi Minh, were handed over to Vietnam a year ago, in April. The last delivery is scheduled to be carried out by 2016.
    Russia will also train Vietnamese crews and provide indispensable spare parts. All of the commissioned submarines are to join Submarine Brigade 189, Vietnam's news agency VNA reported.

    As the submarines were commissioned amid ongoing tension in the South China Sea; Pham Hoai Nam also stressed during his speech that reinforcement of the Vietnamese navy wasn’t meant to create an arms race or deter other countries, but only to protect country’s sovereignty and ensure peace in the region.

    The first Russian Kilo Class submarine was released in the early 1980s. The latest models of the vessel are almost 74m-long, have a 3,000-ton displacement and can operate in 300 meter-depths at a speed of 20 nautical miles per hour.
