    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.

    Nah, we don't ever want to fight a war with our neighbours. Most of us have relatives there too.

    But we'll always be vigilant for any trouble though.

    this is an interesting mix of loadouts. P90 w/suppressor and the SAR21 Carbine.

    Default Foreign Forces using Singapore weapons

    Hi all bros, althought Singapore would never officially announce the types of weapons officially sold to which countries, i hope that from this thread, all bros can contribute pictures of Singapore weapons used in your countries and post it in this thread as well. Below is the pictures which i got from another thread from our Croatian and Serbian bros contribution;
    (Left to right) Serbia Special Forces using our Ultimax 100 LMG (x 3 pics) and Croatia Special Forces using our Ultimax 100 LMG. It was used intensively in the last Balkan War.

    I've seen commando section operating with 1 guy using the P90 while the rest having the normal infantry loadouts. Didn't know the SAR21 carbine version is in operation.

    Ultimax is one of the best LMG in the world even though it has been around for more than 10 years. Some weapon analysis even claim that it is much better than the Belgian FN mini because of the ease of using the Ultimax and the maintenance. When i was in the army, i always like this cool weapon..

    We called it the bolt action rifle... and for a good reason. I dont think any other weapon had such a powerful reputation for malfunctioning.

    Powerful reputation for malfunctioning? I think you speak before you think it twice. That's because you are using a training Ultimax with improper maintenance right? It is pass down by irresponsible user to next user and so on...i used to be in SISPEC and the Ultimax was not in good shape (due to training weapon status) but when i have a chance to observe and in fact, fire the weapon in a regular unit, it was a superb and easy to use LMG.

    In the regular unit, it has a proper maintenance to keep it in good shape.

    Bro Anti_Tanky, please don't post any bad links from putfile.com. Kindly save it in your PC first before you attach. Thank you for your contribution.

    Agreed. I was doing systems status reports on our Ultimax during NS and most of the faults rectified, were actually operator caused and from the earlier Mk2/Mk3 batches from Training Schools.

    Most of the problems had to do with improper cleaning and OMer maintenance irresponsibility.

    Probably, though my unit was fielding allot of new and in some cases experimental weapons, the SAW's were probably ancient (allot of them were turning silver). But when you see someone at live range constantly having to clear IA's. it does make an impression on you.

    The M16s at BMTC had a simialar reputation, though I managed to circumvent that little problem with a rubber band, and never had any stoppages .

    Time for another shot at those uploads. Some personal photos from my own NS days. I'll upload more later soon.



    Deceptively peaceful and calm, the basic military training centre (BMTC) is an off-shore base where most of the prospective recruits are turned into basic soldiers before being assigned to whatever comes over the horizon. Ask any NS-Man where his best memories live, and most will tell you BMTC.



    Basic training, Shell-scrape digging. Everyones favourite activity next to repacking TeleJay comms lines and filling sandbags.



    Myself, the famous "half whiteboy roundeye devil" of BMTC school 1, shortly before the pre graduation 24KM march warmup.



    AIT. Chemical defense training. Pre exposure to the "gas room" (pushups, jumping jacks and singing the national anthem while enjoying the scents of CS gas)



    An MP friend of mine had a chamber explosion during our annual marksmanship qualification shoot. He had neglected to assemble his weapon with the bolt-cam pin. He wasnt injured, and despite getting threats of 7 years in the DB, only ended up with 4 weeks of SOL. Lucky bastard.


    More to come, thanks for looking
