Russia has Completed the Construction of Two Vietnamese Frigates | Defence blog.

Commentary: This is the second batch of Russian frigates for the People’s Navy and part of Vietnam’s anti-access/area denial fleet buildup. Eight Kh-35 Klub anti-ship missiles make each a considerable threat to the People’s Liberation Army Navy.

Four frigates and six submarines is a good start, but Vietnam has probably spent as much as it can on this naval buildup and the question is whether or not China will see this as a force to be reckoned with.
