The fifth of the six Kilo-class submarines that Vietnam purchased from Russia has arrived at Cam Ranh Bay, Thanh Nien news reported.
The submarine, which was delivered by a Dutch-registered cargo ship, laid anchor near the Cam Ranh Port, according to the report.
The sixth submarine is undergoing sea trials in Russia and is expected to arrive in the middle of 2016.
Vietnam purchased the six submarines for $2 billion in 2009.
