ST. PETERSBURG, July 5 (Itar-Tass) - The construction two corvettes of the Gepard-3.9 11661E project for the Vietnamese Navy proceeds in strict compliance with contract liabilities. The ships are being built at the Zelenodolsk shipyards, Igor Sevastyanov, the head of the Rosoboronexport, Russia’s biggest arms exporter, delegation to the sixth international naval show, told journalists on Friday.
“The works go on in line with contract schedule. Everything is being done in due time and with due quality. Our Vietnamese clients, our partners are inspecting the work,” he said.
According to available information, the two ships will be handed over to Vietnam’s Navy in 2016 and in 2017. The contract was signed in December 2011.
Previously, Vietnam contracted two such ships in 2006, which were handed over to its Navy in 2011. The Gepard-type corvettes are equipped with Uran-type anti-ship missiles.
