Singapore Technologies Marine has successfully launched the fifth Littoral Mission Vessel (LMV), Indomitable, designed and built for the Republic of Singapore Navy (RSN).

ST Marine is building eight LMVs for the RSN. They will be faster, more versatile and equipped with more advanced technologies than the vessels they will replace in order to 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, enabling the crew to deliver calibrated responses using lethal and non-lethal options to deal with different maritime threats.

The first LMV, RSS Independence, was commissioned into service on 5 May 2017. Three previously launched LMVs - Sovereignty, Unity and Justice - are currently undergoing sea trials.
