after the Viet Nam war, All of them except the HQ-15 PHAM NGU LAO went to the Phillipines but she had falled into the Communist's hand.
PHAM NGU LAO kept her name and the null number become HQ-1 of North navy. The Vietnam People 's Navy appears to have retained its major components, such as the 5-inch 38-caliber (127-millimeter) gun and 81-mm mortars. In the mid-1980s, Soviet-made 37-mm and 25-mm guns were installed for close-in defense, as were two Soviet-made SS-N-2 (NATO reporting name "Styx") anti-ship cruise missile launchers and two Soviet-made quad SA-N-5 (NATO reporting name "Grail") surface-to-air-missile launchers
