Republic of Singapore Navy's (RSN) Formidable-class frigate RSS Supreme has successfully carried out an Aster surface-to-air missile live-firing in the multilateral Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) naval exercise.
The 22nd biennial exercise is hosted by United States Navy (USN). RSS supreme has conducted the test in the operational phase of the exercise off the coast of Hawaii.
The ship is participating in this year's exercise with more than 30 ships, five submarines, 150 aircraft and 20,000 personnel from 13 other countries.
RSS Supreme also took part in maritime operations such as combined anti-submarine and air defence missions.
"Exercise RIMPAC is a good opportunity for the RSN to train with other established navies. It enables us to strengthen our interoperability with the other participating navies through high intensity and complex maritime operations,” Commanding Officer RSS Supreme Lieutenant Colonel Tan Wei Min, said in a Singapore MoD news release.
This is the second time the RSN is involved in this exercise, following its inaugural participation in July 2008.
