Singapore Naval Open House: RSS Steadfast

Taken in the control room at the above mentioned event. Wiki says that the Steadfast is one of the six stealth frigates, built by the French defense company DCNS for the Singapore Navy.

The view currently seen is a far cry from what could be seen on the high seas, perhaps in times of conflict.

It does give you a feel for it, Ayush, doesn't it.
Ayush Basu: Yes, it was quite an experience. There was a US Navy ship too but it/she was not taking visitors by the time I got around there. It was 5pm, so I guess that figures.

I would never have guessed that Singapore has a navy. Steadfast looks very modern.
Ayush Basu: Apart from national security concerns, there is significant trade and ship building that goes on in Singapore and in the region. I guess in that way it makes sense to have a navy. I was told that the RSS Steadfast was commissioned in 2008. Here's a wiki link if you're interested, Louis: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Formidable-class_frigate

Hey real "Boys Toys" stuff you got to look at there Ayush.

I have never heard of a stealth frigate Ayush.
Ayush Basu: I just keyed in stealth frigate in wiki and it took me to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Formidable-class_frigate. If you have the time and inclination to look it up Bill
Joysticks are used to steer vessels nowadays! Fine captures Ayush.
Ayush Basu: There were three of these consoles actually Richard.

As its a stealth vessel, I'm surprised you could see it. It would have even better if it was invisible. It's amazing that its all navigated by just a small joystick.
Ayush Basu: smile
Yes, someday they will be navigated by a smartphone I suppose.
