Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.
Even in the midst of this challenging period, cooperation with our regional partners continues unabated. Today, the crew of RSS Fortitude and RSS Steadfast conducted a Passage Exercise (PASSEX) with KRI Bung Tomo and KRI Abdul Halim Perdanakusuma. This is the latest in the long history of cooperation between RSN and the Indonesian Navy (TNI AL).
To the crew of RSS Fortitude and RSS Steadfast, as well as our friends from TNI AL, Bravo Zulu on a job well-done!

While the pictures make it look easy, successfully conducting MANEX is no simple feat. Seamless cooperation is required between the entire bridge team, to ensure that these at-sea drills are carried out without a hitch.
