Another LMV patrol ship launched in Singapore

The Fortitude ship is the 6 of eight LMV class ships ordered for the Singapore Navy.

The contract for the construction of 8 ships was concluded at the beginning of 2014. They will replace the 11 Firless-class patrol ships that have been in service for more than 20 years, built by the ST Marine unit in the middle of the 90's.

The new 80-meter ships are designed to “patrol, protect maritime infrastructure and sea lanes, intercept offenders and escorts,” the release of the country's military says.

The keel of the Fortition was laid out at the end of May 2017. At the present time, the ships Dontless (laid the keel) and Firless are on the various stages of construction (cutting of the steel has begun).

The delivery of the entire batch is scheduled for completion by 2020.

      No - it's just a healthy person's patrol.
      Only from the third building began to put 2x8 Mickey.
      There is a slot for 2x2 RCC.

      There are convertible areas.

      There is a good anti-piracy-antiachoid-offender
      Bykov and co - 76 mm gun + 2 MTUU open with a sailor gunner.
      Here Melara 76mm + 2x25mm stabilized guns remotely controlled + 2x12,7mm stabilized machine guns with the ability to remotely control + water cannons with remote control + acoustic guns.

      No hangar.

      On the move, only semi-rigid boats with search and assault boats are dropped. It’s possible to take landing boats with booking elements from Bykov.

      And where does China. Singapore is a former colony of Britons .. And before that, the land of the Malays. So there is the official language of Britons and Malays. That’s why the names of the ships are not Chinese.
