The Vietnamese Navy will soon receive its second Gepard 3.9-class frigate after it successfully completed a series of sea acceptance trials.

The Gepard-class frigates have been designed to engage surface ships, submarines and air targets as well as to perform escort and patrol tasks.

The 102m-long ships have a full load displacement capacity of 1,930t and can cruise at a maximum speed of 23kts.

The warship was built by Russia’s Zelenodolsk Shipyard, according to RusNavy.
