A more unusual target is based on the hull of a Fast Craft Equipment Personnel (FCEP) waterjet-propelled fast landing craft. The target is painted white for maximum visibility and has nets hung above its hull to register near misses.
The Singapore navy's EP-series of surface targets is believed to be remote controlled. This offers challenging target profiles especially if the EP is conned by a skilled operator who knows how to use the FCEP's speed and manoeuvrability to stress out the gun crew. An FCEP can pivot on the spot, attain speeds in excess of 20 knots and come to a sudden crash stop (not recommended with troops on board). The firing ship must know how to open its gun arcs and should preferably have a weapon with a high slew rate or the EP could slip out of the firing arc if the gunner is slow to respond.
The Navy's surface targets are developed, operated and maintained by the Naval Logistics Command (NALCOM).
