ST Engineering will be responsible for the procurement and integration of the platform equipment and MINDEF-furnished equipment. Its scope of work will also include the undertaking of design and the provision of Integrated Logistics Support Engineering to support and maintain operational readiness during the lifespan of the MRCVs.

The ships will be constructed at ST Engineering Marine’s premises in Singapore. The six vessels are expected to be delivered progressively from 2028 onwards.

The MRCV is designed to function as a mothership and can operate a range of manned and unmanned systems in a flexible, intuitive, and integrated manner. The MRCV will be able to support a wide spectrum of missions with maximum combat effectiveness.

The Multi-Role Combat Vessels will replace the aging Victory-class missile corvettes, which were commissioned between 1990 and 1991 and are based on the MGB 62 (Missile Guided Boat 62).
