HQ-011 Dinh Tien Hoang - Gepard 3.9 Class Frigate
« on: February 20, 2018, 10:16:15 AM »

The Gepard 3.9 class frigates are being built by JSC “Zelenodolsk plant named after A M Gorky” for the Vietnamese Navy.

The frigates can be deployed in anti-surface warfare (AsuW), anti-air warfare (AAW) and anti-submarine warfare (ASW). They can also be deployed in mine-laying, escort, patrol and protection of the maritime state borders and exclusive economic zones (EEZs).

In 2006, the Vietnam Ministry of National Defence (MND) signed a contract with Rosoboronexport for the construction and delivery of the first batch of two Gepard 3.9 class frigates.

The keel for the first frigate in series, HQ-011 Dinh Tien Hoang, was laid in July 2007. The vessel was launched in December 2010 and commissioned into service in March 2011.
