The Fearsome-class patrol vessels are a class of twelve 55 meter long patrol vessels built by Singapore Technologies (ST) Marine for the Royal Navy in the 1990s.

The Fearsome-class patrol vessels were ordered as replacements for the earlier Swift-class coastal patrol crafts after they had been transferred to the Singapore Police Coast Guard. The contract was awarded to ST Marine on February 27th 1993. The first six vessels are fitted for anti-submarine warfare, while the remainder are configured as patrol vessels.

In 1996, the Defence Science Technology Agency project team leading the patrol vessel project was awarded the Defence Technology Prize.

In April 2012, ST Marine was awarded a contract by the Ministry of Defence of the Oman to build four 246 foot (74.98 meter) long patrol vessels based on the Fearsome-class. The vessels were delivered in 2015 and 2016 as the Al-Ofouq-clsas.
