The primary role of the F-50's is to provide dedicated wide area maritime air surveillance for search and resource operations, aeromedical evacuations and the transportation of personnel. The 121Sqn is unique in the RSAF, it is the first RSAF squadron to be crewed by both RSAF and RSN personnels as the pilots are drawn from the RSAF while the equipment/system specialists are from the RSN. As such, the F-50 MPA is part of a [[MINDEF]] system that comprises both [[Republic of Singapore Air Force]] and [[Republic of Singapore Navy]] assets that are capable of operations in tandem for seeking out and destroying a naval surface or sub-surface target, they can be quickly re-armed with the [[Boeing Harpoon|Harpoon Anti-ship missiles]] or [[A244-S|EuroTorp A244/S ASW torpedoes]] as and when they are required to.
