A video has been viewed tens of thousands of times in posts that falsely claim it shows a Philippine Navy warship that was made locally. But Singapore's defence ministry told AFP the video was issued by its navy and shows the design for a vessel jointly developed by the country's Defence Science and Technology Agency and Swedish company Saab Kockums. A Philippine Navy spokesman separately said the ship in the video is not one being built as part of the archipelago's defence programme.
