Vietnam has armed the Pohang class corvette Ship #20 with two Uran-E shipborne missile systems, each with four Kh-35UE subsonic antiship cruise missiles. Despite the fact that the original Flight III Pohang corvettes such as #20 were never meant to be equipped with missile launchers, Vietnamese engineers overcame this problem by adjusting the position of the torpedo tubes to make room. By default, Ship #20 is now the heaviest armed out of all Flight III Pohang Corvettes due to being the only one compared to her sister ships - the BRP Conrado Yap in the Philippines Navy and ENS Shbab Misr in the Egyptian Navy - that has antiship missile capabilities. Vietnam's Ship #18 also does not have this upgrade. These modifications have brought Ship #20 closer in line with her more modern Flight IV cousins. A Russian fire control radar was also installed.

Those following VietDefense should of been able to pick up our rather obvious hints, such as the cheap blueprint looking design we created along with the discussion on modifying a Pohang. Vietnamese community members & VietDefense sources knew about it but kept it secret due to operational security reasons. It's now considered safe to reveal.
