На учениях RIMPAC-2010 военно-морские силы Сингапура представляет фрегат RSS Supreme (73)
The Formidable class multi-role stealth frigates are the latest surface platforms to enter into service with the Republic of Singapore Navy, and are multi-mission derivatives of the French Navy’s La Fayette class frigate. The frigates are key information nodes and fighting units, and are described as “by far the most advanced surface combatants in Southeast Asia". The six ships form the 185 Squadron of the RSN.
Kelas Formidable adalah merupakan sebuah frigat halimunan pelbagai peranan terkini yang memasuki perkhidmatan dengan Angkatan Laut Republik Singapura. Kelas ini merupakan terbitan daripada frigat Kelas La Fayette, sebuah frigat pelbagai misi yang digunakan oleh Tentera Laut Perancis.
Connoting an aura of matchlessness with which the ship faces the opposition, the Supreme ship surpasses all challenges, always rising above the standards set by those who have gone before. It also serves as a unifying call-to-arms for the crew to be unrelenting in their pursuit of excellence, the result of which yield a Supreme ship.
