16 APR 2016 - SECOND OF EIGHT SINGAPORE-DESIGNED AND BUILT WARSHIPS LAUNCHED

Singapore has launched another littoral mission vessel (LMV), Sovereignty, the second of eight new warships that will eventually replace the Navy's older Fearless-class patrol vessels.

Sovereignty is expected to be operationally ready by next year (2017), after its combat systems are installed and it undergoes sea trials. The others are expected to be operational by 2020.

The eight LMVs will do the work previously required by 11 patrol vessels, which have been in service for about 20 years. They also require at least 10 per cent less manpower.

Pan Delta Controls is proud to be a supplier for the LMV project.
