Will Singapore inject Sea Venom?

7th June 2017 - 11:24 GMT | by Wendell Minnick in Singapore


Singapore has expressed interest in a lightweight shore-based anti-ship missile system, with industry sources attending IMDEX and the Shangri-La Dialogue confirming that the island’s military was considering MBDA’s new high subsonic Sea Venom anti-ship missile.

The missile is now undergoing testing and is expected to enter service in 2020, according to an MBDA source. When contacted, Singapore’s Ministry of Defence said, ‘We have nothing to say about it.’

The Sea Venom is a medium-range anti-ship missile developed for shipborne helicopters of the French and UK navies and will replace MBDA’s older air-launched Sea Skua anti-ship missile on UK naval helicopters.
