    Previously on May 26, the fourth of its kind was launched at a ceremony in the Zelenodolsk shipyard.

    Having a displacement of approximately 2,000 tonnes, the Gepard-3.9 is able to operate for 45 days at sea and travel up to 5,000 nautical miles (9,000km). It can also be used for non-military purposes, such as search and rescue, fighting pirates and illegal fishing activities, and assisting vessels in distress."

    In Vietnam, two more missile boats project 12418

    According to Vietnamese media, on October 9, 2017, the Vietnamese Navy built Ba Son Limited (a joint venture of the Defense Ministry's Main Directorate of Defense Industry with the Norwegian group Ulrik Qvale & Partners AS) in the Vietnamese Navy, in Ho Chi Minh City, two of the next constructed for large missile boats Project 12418 (code "Molniya") with the aircraft numbers "382" and "383" (construction numbers M5 and M6 respectively). The boats entered the 167th Naval Brigade of the 2nd Naval District of the Vietnamese Navy (based at the naval base of Nyenchi in the southern province of Dongnai).

    Data of the boats started by the Ba Son Limited assembly at the end of 2013 were launched on April 14 and 15, 2016, however, the delivery of the boats for unknown reasons dragged on for almost a year (originally scheduled for delivery by the end of 2016).

    These are the last two (fifth and sixth) boats built on Ba Son Limited as part of the contract for the organization in Vietnam of the construction of the 12418 missile boats equipped with the 3K24E anti-ship missile system Uran-E, concluded with Rosoboronexport in 2006. The contract included delivery to Vietnam of two launches of Project 12418 completely ready (under the agreement of another year 2003), as well as the construction of six more such boats in Vietnam with Russian assistance. The option to the contract included another four launches of Project 12418, and was transferred to a firm contract in April 2015. The total value of the agreement reaches almost $ 1 billion.

    The main contractor from the Russian side is JSC Shipbuilding Plant Vympel, which built two complete boats of the 12418 project, delivered by the Vietnamese Navy in 2007 (the current Vietnamese aircraft numbers 375 and 376), and also carried out in 2010-2015 the supply to Vietnam of hull sections, components and structures for the licensed construction of this type of boats.The construction of boats in Vietnam is conducted with technical supervision of construction by Vympel, as well as the developer company - Central Marine Design Bureau "Almaz" from St. Petersburg.

    Construction of missile boats of project 12418 in Vietnam is carried out at Ba Son Limited, where the first two missile boats HQ-377 and HQ-378 (now just "377" and "378") of this type with construction numbers M1 and M2 were laid in the fall of 2010 , launched in March 2013, formally handed over to the Vietnamese Navy on April 15, 2014 and formally entered into the Vietnamese Navy (167th Marine Brigade of the 2nd Maritime District) on July 17, 2014.

    Construction of the second pair of missile boats HQ-379 and HQ-380 (now just "379" and "380") with construction numbers M3 and M4 was launched at Ba Son Limited in 2012, and their launch in high availability was produced there on June 24, 2014. Receiving certificates for both boats were signed on April 20, 2015, and on June 2, 2015, both boats were formally entered into the Navy of Vietnam, entering the same 167th naval brigade.

    As it was mentioned earlier, works on providing licensed construction in Vietnam of a series of missile boats of Project 12418 under the contract of 2006 gave the main load to the Rybinsk Shipyard "Vympel" in the last few years (in 2014, these works accounted for more than 75% products of the enterprise).

    The second pair of frigates of the project "Gepard-3.9" was introduced into the Navy of Vietnam

    February 6, 2018 in Cam Ranh (Vietnam), the ceremony of putting into the Navy of the Vietnamese People's Army two built in Russia at JSC Zelenodolsky Plant named after A.M. Gorky "light frigate project 11661E second series (code" Gepard-3.9 "PLO) with reinforced anti-submarine weapons, received Vietnamese names Tran Hung Dao (on-board number" 015 ", serial number 956) and Quang Trung (on-board number" 016 ", factory number 957). On ships the solemn lifting of the naval flag of the Vietnamese Navy took place. The first of the ships is named after the 13th-century Vietnamese commander Chiang Heng Dao, who organized the successful defense of the country during the third Mongol invasion of Daiviet in 1287-1288; The second frigate is named after Nguyen Hue - the second emperor of the Vietnamese Taishon dynasty, who ruled in 1788-1792 and waged successful wars for the unification of the country. Both frigates were included in the 162nd Marine Brigade of the 4th Naval District of the Vietnamese Navy.



    An intergovernmental contract worth about $ 700 million to build two additional frigates for modified project 11661E ("Gepard-3.9" PLO) for Vietnam was signed on October 17, 2012 by Rosoboronexport. On February 15, 2013, the State Contract No. Р / 170412131755-1233287 was concluded between JSC Zelenodolsky Plant named after A.M. Gorky "and JSC" Rosoboronexport "for the construction of the two mentioned frigates (factory numbers 956 and 957). On May 14, 2013, after the transfer of the advance payment by the Vietnamese party, the State contract entered into force. The solemn laying of two frigates was made in Zelenodolsk on September 24, 2013.

    According to the State contract, the ship with the serial number 956 was to be delivered in November 2016, and with the factory number 957 - in March 2017. Acts of transfer of frigates in Vietnam were to be signed, respectively, in February and June 2017.
    However, in view of the political problems that arose with the delivery of the main gas turbine units M44E with the ZPPG Zorya-Mashproekt (Nikolaev, Ukraine), which were permitted only in 2015, JSC Zelenodolsky Plant named after AMGorky was forced to implement a revised schedule for the construction of ships with taking into account the delay in the delivery of the GDTA M44E. The head frigate of this series with the serial number 956 was launched in Zelenodolsk on April 27, 2016, and the second with the serial number 957 - launched on May 26, 2016. In September and October 2016, both ships were transferred via inland waterways from Zelenodolsk to Novorossiysk, where since December 2016 they were tested and trained Vietnamese crews.

    The acceptance certificate for the frigate with the serial number 956 was signed in Novorossiysk on April 1, 2017, and on September 17 the ship was sent to Vietnam aboard the Rolldock Star dock-carrier. The second ship with the serial number 957 was sent to Vietnam also on the ship Rolldock Star in December 2017.

    Earlier, in accordance with the contract worth about $ 350 million, signed on December 22, 2006 by Rosoboronexport with the Vietnamese side, the Zelenodolsk plant built for the Vietnamese Navy the first two frigates of the project 11661E (Cheetah 3.9) Đinh Tiên Hoàng (onboard number "011", serial number 954) and Ly Thai To (Ship number "012", serial number 955), commissioned by the Vietnamese fleet, respectively, in March and August 2011.
