RSS Archer submarine arrives in Singapore
RSS Archer, the most advanced submarine in the Republic of Singapore Navy (RSN), arrived here for the first time on Wednesday morning.
Chief of Navy Rear-Admiral Ng Chee Peng and other senior naval officers were at Changi Naval Base to witness its arrival from Karlskrona, Sweden.
The Archer-class boat is one of two former Royal Swedish Navy Vaastergotland-class submarines acquired second-hand by the RSN in 2005. It was launched in Karlskrona for sea trials two years ago, after undergoing upgrading to operate in tropical water conditions.
Submarine crew members from the RSN have been in Sweden since 2007 to undergo training to operate and maintain the submarine.
Sounds like rain drops on the 20KHZ frequency. Someone is Snorkeling.
Is it that easy to detect? It seems like it would be a bear to track given its size. I wonder what the Malaysians think of the new acquisition.
