RSS Sea Dragon (P78) was one of six Sea Wolf-class missile gunboats built for the Singapore Navy. Commissioned in 1975, Sea Dragon was armed with a Bofors 57mm/L70 Mk.1 and 40mm/L70, and CIS 50 machine guns. During refits, the 40mm/L70 was replaced with a launcher for the Mistral surface-to-air missile, and she was upgraded to carry the RGM-84 Harpoon and Gabriel Mk. II anti-shipping missiles. She was decommissioned 13 May, 2008, along with the rest of the class.
