The usual NDP mobile column will prob be bigger this year, because apparently there's gonna be new armoured vehicles (the Pionierpanzer 3 Kodiak) that they're gonna showcase.

The picture can be found at NDPeeps fb's post dated 22.6.2015. The following image is lifted from that fb post.

Another platform that make the debut at this NDP is the recently announced PRV.

Thanks for the info. Dicam.
But, with a stealthy design, can't they put in some additional effort to install a stealthier RWS? The one installed basically negates whatever stealth level it supposed to have.... wink.gif

What is the purpose and role of this stealth interceptor? Is it a prototype or is it already in comission? I am asking as the vessel looks rather incomplete. It is clearly a navy asset and not a coast guard vessel. Is this from ST Marine?

This is perplexing as if this vessel is destine to perform naval base inshore sea protection duties, then why bother with stealth in the first place? If they are going to be deployed further away from the shore, then why not give it to the PCG? And again why bother with stealth as pirates and smugglers are unlikely to possess radar equipment. But if this vessel is going to be used in support of special forces operations, then this vessel again leaves much to be desired as at least it requires a ramp and more armaments.

Could this vessel be a potential MGB replacement too? Just wondering.

Could it be a mock up rather than the real thing? ST Marine page here: http://www.stengg.com/products-solutions/p...lth-interceptor. Unfortunately, no real information.

Probably real thing, saw images of the jet thrusters from some rear-view shots of the interceptor.

Quote from NDPeep about the un-indentified vessel

"Low Yi Qin: Singapore newest 27M STEALTH INTERCEPTOR that is currently in production right after LMV"


I wonder how this vessel will fit into our defence doctrines

It's propulsion system is water jet. There are some video clips around. Do a search on YouTube. wink.gif

Tbh, it doesn't look like 27m to me. Maybe its the angle of the shot? Anyone else has any shot of it from another angle?

Very different from this. RSN was known to operate VSV type vessels which are much smaller.

Small vessels are generally more preferred in intercept operations. Easy to maneuver, able to do clipping.

Larger vessels like this... seems optimized for insertion rather than patrol.

I do agree vessels of these size and specs are deemed more likely to be used for spec ops insertion, but the problem is, I don't see any ramps installed on it unlike the CB90. I doubt it is likely that they expect the troops to disembark from the side of the vessel.

CB90s are not really for true spec ops insertions; they are multirole boats and one of their key functions is an assault role to deliver troops on the directly on to the beach.

The hull form of the new craft is optimized for high speeds (no front ramp), and of course stealth. Based on other similar types boats (SOC Mk V), ramps should be at the stern.. well we will see soon enough.
