    i dont reckon the 16D has conformal tanks... only the D+

    Here's a shot of it on approach to Paya Lebar. The backseater looks really relaxed. Anyone live in the Fort Road area?

    Actually tanks are very vulnerable to infantry weapons, they are good for terrains like desert, bush and open areas where infantry can't hide. For forests, urban areas..... one team firing down from a higher point is enough take out a platoon of tanks before they know what hit them.

    Agreed. M1A1 is juz too big for our terriain. small country, small tank....

    I think you guys can stop revealing whatever classified info you know from your NS stint or otherwise just to prove you know something. It does us no good. If we have it, then we have it; If not, then not.

    Everything that is being discussed so far is information that can be readily found in the public domain. If you're a military buff, you'd know which sites, forums and publicly accessible databases to track such information.

    I believe the F16s and newly purchased F15s will come with datalink capabilities. Meaning they will be able to cross take feed from either their wingman or AWACS. RSAF now just need to purchase the E3C sentry or the newer JSTARS to complete the package. Imagine the AWACS guiding the missles from the fighters w/o the fighters even having to light up their radar.

    Just because laymen think it is newly revealed info..doesn't mean it is.Us military buffs know where the info in the public domain is, just that they do not really publish it here.But it is in magazines and journals nonetheless.

    Ever heard of SG planning to procure the Global Hawk?ABM systems?

    I saw a few flying around SG b4, what a sight.
    F-14 Tomcats are mobile fighters on a carrier. Think about maintaining an air-craft carrier?And more than 2 thousand people to feed.
