In 1970s South Viet Nam got 7 Barnegat class ships.
they were:
HQ-2 TRAN QUANG KHAI(AVP-36 Cook Inlet)
[ img ]

HQ-3 TRAN NHAT DUAT(AVP-32 Yakutat)
[ img ]

HQ-5 TRAN BINH TRONG (AVP-24 Chincoteague)
[ img ]

HQ-6 TRAN QUOC TOAN(AVP-56Wachapreague)
[ img ]

HQ-15 PHAM NGU LAO(AVP-23 Absecon)
[ img ]

HQ-16 LY THUONG KIET(AVP-34 Bering Strait)
[ img ]

HQ-17 NGO QUYEN(AVP-35 Castle Rock)
[ img ]

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
Anyway I had never seen the photos and profile, Anybody know?

Welcome to the Shipbucket Philodraco. :)
These are interesting drawings, but I'm afraid they are not in SB style, so unless they are purely for reference reasons, their place is rather in Non-Shipbucket Drawings forum.
As for the North Vietnamese modernization of Pham Ngu Lao - I've heard about it too, but never seen any photo or anything similar.

Another stage of USCG modification: the crane has been replaced with a mast (plus several minor alterations).

Excellent work WhyMe

WhyMe an ! Me have been wondering what gun is, the Norwegian one carrying, she was converted into a school ship. The 5" gun did never work when Norway received it from US...

but the gun behind the 5" gun, what is it. I have been thinking about, that it either are an old 105 mm gun from an old destroyer (for example Sleipner class) or an British 4"-4.5" gun from an retired vessel, Norway had a couple of British ships after WW2.

For WhyMe, radars on the picture looks like the British "Type 293" "type 294" radar

Rangefinder, either US Mk 51-52 (40mm rangefinder) training purpose, or an British destroyer director Mk II or Mk III (would make sense, since the Norwegian Navy had many British destroyers in it's fleet)
