    Sigma class corvettes are built to sizes ranging from 50 to 150m in length and 9 to 15m width, addressing the whole spectrum from Offshore Patrol Vessel (OPV), via corvette to frigate size vessels meeting a wide range of customer demands. In fact, the class name Sigma stands for Ship Integrated Geometrical Modularity Approach. The lead ship of the SIGMA class was KRI Diponegoro, launched in 2004 for the Indonesian Navy.

    Indonesia was the first customer for the new design, ordering four 9113 class 91 meter corvettes. In 2010 Indonesia has ordered four larger vessels, the 105m’ Type 10514. The Moroccan Navy became the second customer for this class, ordering three frigate sized multi-mission vessels in two classes – SIGMA Type 9813 (98m’) and the 105m’ SIGMA 10145. The first Moroccan Sigma frigate, Tarik ben Ziyad was transferred to the Royal Moroccan Navy on 10 September 2011. With the conclusion of the Vietnam, Schelde will win its third international customer for this class.

    Even if indias defense ship yards are full of orders from INdian Navy, IMO we have to accommodate for at least one order from countries like vietnam.

    Vietnam can't even make a tractor, so I guess it's fine that they buy military weapons. The question is, how many people could've been fed with that, so beautiful Vietnamese ladies do not have to swim across the border to China?

    Nice try. Viet Nam built 150,000-ton FPSO a couple of years ago, and has just launched a 104,000-ton oil tanker. Stick to stuff that you know instead.

    "Vietnam is not Pakistan.Period!!!!!"

    Vietnam is a highly developing country unlike Pakistan who is seeing negative growth. It is only a matter of time before Vietnam develops a strong industrial and technological base and the Chinese should not get jealous and should instead help their all weather friend, Pakistan.
