Singapore Technologies Marine (ST Marine) has launched the Republic of Singapore Navy’s fifth Littoral Mission Vessel (LMV), named Indomitable, during a ceremony at Benoi shipyard Saturday.
The firm has also recently completed keel-laying for the sixth LMV.
The LMVs are faster, more versatile, and equipped with sharper capabilities to further strengthen the RSN's effectiveness in seaward defence. The LMVs can be quickly configured with mission modules to take on a wide spectrum of operations, allowing the crew to deliver calibrated responses using lethal and non-lethal options to deal with a range of maritime threats.
The LMV programme is progressing well. The first LMV, RSS Independence, was commissioned during the RSN's Golden Jubilee on 5 May 2017 by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong. RSS Independence was most recently involved in search and rescue efforts for the missing crew of the Dominican-registered dredger JBB De Rong 19 that collided with Indonesian-registered tanker Kartika Segara.
