Navy ship tour tickets up for grabs
The public can tour the Republic of Singapore Navy's (RSN) frigate RSS Intrepid, and ride the Fast Craft Utility (FCU), which will be docked at the VivoCity Promenade from Wednesday till Sunday.
This is part of RSN50@Vivo, the final event in RSN's 50th anniversary celebration.
The tour includes a visit to the frigate's bridge to check out its combat capabilities and advanced weaponry.
Visitors will also get a look at the crew's living quarters, dining room and galley where meals are prepared.
They can also take a ride on the FCU along the Southern coastline and see key maritime landmarks such as Keppel Harbour, Pulau Bukom and Tanjong Berlayer.
Military Expert 2 (ME2) Balasubramaniam Danabalan, 26, a weapons control system supervisor on the RSS Intrepid, said: "Through this event, we hope the public will appreciate and understand how the RSN safeguards our country as we mark our 50th celebration."
