Singapore- Navy Submarines To Arrive Next Month (26 Jan 2004)

The Dock Express, a semi-submersible cargo ship will be carrying three of the Navy's submarines when it arrives in Singapore next month.

Swedish shipbuilder Kockums is in charge of the project. The 160cm-long Dock Express departed from the Swedish port of Karlskrona.

Two boats, RSS Centurion and RSS Challenger will join the two submarines at Changi Naval Base. Kockums said in a statement that the third and unnamed submarine is being shipped as a reserve vessel.

Kockums also added that RSN submariners had just completed their training programme in Sweden.
