    Just my two (Euro) cents.
    Yup, maybe they have modified 2 original Djigit twin launchers onto the Mechanised Igla thus only 4 missiles.

    As for more firepower, just in front of the crew( gunner?) in the pix below , they could I think put in a CIS50 HMG or even a Vulcan 20mm gattling gun as CIWS, that will be even more awesome!!

    A CIS-50 would be enough IMHO. A bigger gun and its ammo could create a space problem and even strain the chassis, if the increase in missiles is factored in.

    Here one recent news , I am posting this becos of pix our new Bronco MTC( Mortar Tracked Carrier) :

    SAF Conducts Annual Artillery Exercise in New Zealand

    The Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) is conducting Exercise Thunder Warrior at the Waiouru Training Area in New Zealand from 21 January to 10 February. This annual artillery exercise was first conducted in 1997.

    Minister for Manpower and Second Minister for Defence Dr Ng Eng Hen, accompanied by the New Zealand Defence Minister Phil Goff, visited SAF troops in Waiouru on Sunday, 4 Feb 2007. Both Ministers had the opportunity to witness the conduct of artillery live firing and fire the mortar track carrier (MTC) in its first overseas live-firing. This year’s exercise also features the PRIMUS-Singapore self-propelled howitzer (SSPH) with integrated support from weapon locating radars and ground reconnaissance elements. This is a milestone in the Artillery's transformation as part of the 3rd Generation SAF.

    As in previous exercises, troops from the New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) have been operating with the SAF's artillery units. This testifies to the warm and long-standing defence relationship between Singapore and New Zealand. This close cooperation has built close personal ******* and facilitated the sharing of professional knowledge between both armed forces.

    when the fokker 50 mpas were first bought, not all of them were built with the pylons for the harppon. all original contract for the MPA was for six aircraft not five. the last one was cancelled. i have a painting of the MPA with ten aircraft serial numbers on it.

    Default RSN Unmanned Systems Part 1

    Rafael Protector Unmanned Surface Vessels(USV)

    The Protector in action during RSS Resolution's three-month deployment to the North Arabian Gulf.






    Spec of Protector USV
    9m-long Rigid Hulled Inflatable Boat (RHIB)

    Capabilities:
    - Force Protection (FP)
    - Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR)

    Equipped with:
    - Camera device
    - Loudspeaker and microphone
    - Surveillance radar
    - Mini-Typhoon stabilised naval machine gun system

    Remotely controlled by operator on mother ship and powered by diesel engine

    Uniquely Spartan
    In its continual efforts towards becoming a 3G Navy, the RSN is actively involved in research and development. It has the privilege of being involved in a multi-national collaboration with the US Naval Undersea Warfare Centre, the French Navy and other agencies in the Spartan Advanced Concept Technology Demonstration (ACTD) programme to develop the Spartan USV.

    Started in mid-2002, the ACTD programme will create significant changes to naval warfare, especially in littoral waters. With Singapore as an island situated in littoral waters, the RSN can value-add in the programme with its relevant expertise in littoral warfare.

    Together with the experts from the various agencies, the RSN personnel have been testing and evaluating the Spartan to refine its operational requirements.

    This USV is armed with 'plug-and-play' mission modules - FP/-ISR, MIW, ASW and AsuW/Precision engagement. Depending on the mission modules, the Spartan can be equipped with different capabilities that are interchangeable.

    According to the RSN Operations Manager for the Spartan ACTD programme, the ACTD is a manifestation of the RSN's intent to be at the leading edge of unmanned technologies.

    Some of the early results of the Spartan include its deployment in ISR and FP missions "to augment the RSN's maritime security capabilities".

    There are many points unique to the Spartan that cannot be found on other USVs like the Protector. One is its coalition interoperability, where a single host can control multiple USVs, or multiple hosts can control a single USV.

    This is a strong and added advantage in terms of naval combat, especially when allied forces have to work hand-in-hand to counter maritime threats. Its beyond line-of-sight datalink capability is another unique factor. Used together with a UAV, the Spartan can be deployed at an out-of-sight distance from the mother ship and transmit data retrieved back to the mother ship using high-speed broadband datalink.

    And unlike the Protector, the Spartan need not be remotely controlled. With way-points (various points in a route) and targets set, the Spartan can be an autonomous system.

    Its 360-degree rotation camera device aids in object avoidance along its intended path.





    The RSN is experimenting with the use of the Spartan Scout

    Spec of Spartan USV

    7m-long Rigid Hulled Inflatable Boat (RHIB)

    Plug-and-play mission modules:

    FP/ ISR
    MIW
    ASW
    ASuW/ Precision engagement
    Depending on the mission modules, the Spartan can be equipped with any of the following:

    Loudspeaker and microphone (basic equipment)
    Surveillance radar (basic equipment)
    360-degree video and camera suite
    High-fidelity electro-optical/Infra-red ball
    Stabilised machine gun/missile
    Mine-hunting side scan sonar
    Dipping sonar
    Anti-armour missile
    Broadband datalink
    Nuclear, radiological and chemical detection
    Remotely controlled by an operator on mother ship; autonomous; interoperability among different hosts, and powered by diesel engine

    [size=5]UAE Buys Mobile Mortars[/size]

    By ADNAN ABDEL-RAZZAK, ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates

    The United Arab Emirates has awarded International Golden Group (IGG), a local manufacturer, a 390 million-dirham ($106 million) contract to supply the military with the Agrab mobile mortar system. It is the UAE’s largest deal announced at IDEX on Feb. 19.

    The Agrab, or Scorpion, is a joint venture between IGG and ST Kinetics from Singapore, which manufactures the 120mm Super Rapid Advanced Mortar System; South Africa’s Denel, which supplies the Arachnida fire control system; and BAE Systems, makers of the RG 31 Armored Utility Vehicle.
    The Agrab has a range of 8,200 meters.

    Good to know that beside assisting in Iraq UN resolution duties, our men are stepping in to assist Afghanistan as well.

    Below is the quote from our Defence Minister;

    The battle against terrorism cannot be won overnight. Neither can the battle against terrorism be won by force alone. We must also win the struggle for hearts and minds. For this reason, Singapore is preparing to provide humanitarian and reconstruction assistance to Afghanistan. Developments in Afghanistan have an impact on Singapore’s security. Several of Singapore’s JI detainees received their terrorist training in Afghanistan. They were part of a terror cell plotting to carry out attacks on targets in Singapore. Terrorism operates without regard for national borders. Singapore is thus prepared to work together, within our means, with the some 40 other countries currently working in Afghanistan to build the institutions, infrastructure and services that will bring brighter prospects to the people of Afghanistan.

    The SAF will be undertaking two humanitarian and reconstruction projects in Afghanistan as part of the New Zealand Provincial Reconstruction Team in Bamiyan Province in central Afghanistan. The SAF and NZDF know each other well and have previously deployed together in the UN mission in East Timor. The NZDF has operated in Bamiyan Province since 2003. Their personnel have built up a strong foundation of trust with the local community and provincial government.

    For the first project, the SAF will deploy a five-man medical team to Bamiyan hospital to set up a dental clinic. The SAF team will bring specialised equipment, set up the clinic, and train local Afghans to take over the clinic on a long term basis. Separately, under the Singapore Co-operation Programme, training will also be provided to the Afghans in dentistry and basic healthcare so they can build up sustainable capabilities. For the second project, a five-man SAF combat engineering team will undertake bridge construction and repair work, together with the NZDF and local Afghan contractors. The SAF assessed these projects would be most helpful to the Afghan people after consulting the NZDF, and the Afghan Government and local Afghan authorities during a site visit. Each team will be deployed for three months. We are currently working out the details with the parties involved, including the NZDF, NATO and the Afghan Government.
