The Republic of Singapore Navy's (RSN) second of six new frigates, the RSS Intrepid, was launched by Mrs Lee Hsien Loong, wife of Prime Minister Mr Lee Hsien Loong, on 3 Jul 2004 at Singapore Technologies Marine yard.
The RSS Intrepid is the first locally-built frigate by Singapore Technologies Marine (ST Marine) under a technology transfer agreement with Direction Des Constructions Navales (DCN) of France.
