    Nice pics Carambol. Thank you!

    I've just came across an article on PVA shipbuilding about them being top five in the world.

    [LEFT]Vietnam has been listed as one of the top five shipbuilders in the world by Fairplay magazine.[/LEFT]
    [LEFT]Vietnam Shipbuilding Industry Group (Vinashin) President Pham Thanh Binh says the country’s shipbuilding sector is on track to becoming the fourth largest in the world by 2015.[/LEFT]
    [LEFT]He says the industry has never had such bright prospects and cites the delivery of two 53,000-tonne ships to the UK in June last year as Vietnam’s passport to the world market.[/LEFT]
    [LEFT]Vinashin now has almost 200 shipyards nationwide and the capacity to build oil tankers greater than 300,000 tonnes.[/LEFT]
    [LEFT]It has received orders to build ships worth about US $6 billion, including US $4 billion from countries with advanced shipbuilding technology such as the UK, Japan, the Netherlands and Germany.[/LEFT]
    [LEFT]This year, Vinashin’s subsidiary Pha Rung Shipbuilding Company began construction of a 13,000 DWT oil tanker for a Greek partner. Nam Trieu Shipbuilding Company also won a US $280 million contract to build four car carrying ships, one of which is now under construction.[/LEFT]
    [LEFT]However, Vinashin General Director Nguyen Quoc Anh says that while the company has now made its initial 2015 target to be the fifth biggest shipbuilder in the world, there are still some issues that need to be addressed.[/LEFT]
    [LEFT]Currently, only about 30% of the materials and services required to build ships comes from Vietnam. The industry has to import most of the materials and engines and use international consultants and supervisers on building projects.[/LEFT]
    [LEFT]In the quest to have 60% locally-made materials supplying the industry by 2010, and 75% by 2015, Vinashin has set up large shipyards in three regions of the country.[/LEFT]
    [LEFT]It has invested heavily in subsidiaries and now owns 18 industrial parks and diesel hydraulic engine and steel plants.[/LEFT]
    [LEFT]Vinashin has also invested in developing the industry’s labour force and says this is an important element in its strategy to develop the sector.[/LEFT]
    [LEFT]The group annually sends technicians to Poland, Japan and Denmark for training.

    thxs for the photos
    I would say exhausts for gas-turbines.

    This is how the stern of the swedish Norrköping-class missileboats looks like (it has three Rolls Royce gas-turbines)



    (image from Robotbatar.se. These ships are no longer used by the swedish navy, last two of original twelve was put out of service a couple of years ago)

    I think Yugo type is misleading, this is P-14 type and is much newer. Iranian Ghadir class is a version of this though not identical.
