Expect to see lots of skin in the new instalment of director Jack Neo's popular national service movie series, Ah Boys To Men 3: Frogmen.

In the movie about the elite Naval Diving Unit, Ah Boy actors Tosh Zhang and Joshua Tan run topless in the rain, with their glorious abs on full display.

Actor Maxi Lim even bares it all, save for a toilet plunger covering his bits.

Reprising his role as bootlicking smart aleck recruit Aloysius Jin, Lim, 27, says: "I had mentally prepared myself. But when I had to do the scene, I got nervous, especially since I had to hold the (plunger) for a good six hours.

"In that scene I was supposed to run out from the shower. I had to wet myself again in between takes, and the wind was pretty strong. It was cold."

He was speaking on Friday at a press conference aboard the warship RSS Endurance, which was docked at the Promenade at VivoCity.

The $2.5 million production, which opens in cinemas on Feb 19, will see the return of the original Ah Boys such as Wang Weiliang, Zhang and Tan, and the addition of new recruit Wesley Wong, son of veteran Hong Kong stars Melvin Wong and Angie Chiu Nga Chi.

Would the other Ah Boys be willing to bare it all too like Lim?

The witty Wang, 27, says: "Of course I won't remove my clothes now. But on the set, if Director Neo says take off your clothes. I would say, 'Yes, boss, right away!'"

After much prodding by co-star Wang, the dapper Zhang, 25, says in jest: "Well, then my fees have got to be higher."
