The Republic of Singapore Navys (RSN) first Littoral Mission Vessel (LMV) has been commissioned on September 15 at Singapore Technologies Marine (ST Marine). Permanent Secretary (Defence) Mr Chan Yeng Kit officiated at the ceremony. The keel laying of the first LMV marks another significant milestone for the RSN. This LMV is the first of eight new LMVs to be built for the RSN by ST Marine, together with ST Electronics and DSO National Laboratories. The Defence Science and Technology Agency is the overall programme manager and systems integrator for the LMV programme. The LMVs, to be equipped with advanced combat systems, will be highly versatile and capable of embarking on various mission modules to fulfil a full spectrum of operations. To enable enhanced operational efficiency with a leaner crew size, cutting-edge technologies and innovative concepts have been integrated into the design of the LMVs. The LMVs will replace the existing Fearless-class Patrol Vessels, which have served the RSN well for close to 20 years. The addition of the LMVs to the RSN will enhance the capabilities of the RSN for the seaward defence of Singapore.
