    What are the pouches on the side of the rifle for? Am I right in assuming they are used to collect the spent bullet casings? why are they collected, is it just plain tidiness or are the casings re-used or recycled?

    1. Legal requirement. Possession of empty cartridges is a crime.
    2. Environmentally friendly. The nature reserve don't need anymore damage.
    3. Enforcement of training. You must expend the rounds

    I think they are a good idea, every army should hav them, especially during Peace Time and Training. I don't know much about weapons , do they interfere with using the rifle in any way?

    While it doesn't really interfere with the usage of the weapon, it does make it more bulky making it harder to store/stow the weapon in a vehicle. This might not be serious but it does get real annoying after a while.

    Based on my experience with the spent ammo casing pouch, the pouch must be emptied after firing about 2 magazines worth of ammunition, if you don't you'll start to experience stoppages. Such as stovepipes or failure-to-eject.

    Default Singapore: Commissioning of RSS Swordsman



    Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Finance Mr Tharman Shanmugaratnam officiated at a ceremony to mark the commissioning of RSS Swordsman, the Republic of Singapore Navy's (RSN) second Archer-class submarine, at Changi Naval Base this afternoon. DPM Tharman presented the commissioning warrant to the Commanding Officer of RSS Swordsman, Lieutenant Colonel (LTC) Loh Mun Heng, at the ceremony. He also visited RSS Swordsman where he received a brief by LTC Loh on the capabilities of RSS Swordsman.

    RSS Swordsman was acquired from the Royal Swedish Navy in 2005 and was launched in Karlskrona, Sweden on 20 Oct 2010. She underwent various comprehensive and extensive sea trials in Sweden before returning to Singapore on 31 Dec 2012. RSS Swordsman has undergone extensive refurbishment, upgrades, and tropicalisation to adapt it for operations in our local conditions. Its combat and sensor suites have been upgraded and an Air Independent Propulsion (AIP) system was added to give the submarine greater stealth, extended reach and expanded operational capabilities. RSS Swordsman will join RSS Archer and operate alongside the Challenger-class submarines under the RSN's 171 Squadron.
