    Will the existence of the centurions ever be announced officially? I seriously doubt so

    Imagine one town like woodlands ganna taken out by a salvo from a platoon of MLRS... The military and politcial fall out would be huge even if we manage to counter attack and destroy their MLRS...

    Maybe we should get SCUDs...
    Don't u worry a single bit... MLRS will not be used on resident areas lah... too many PRs and workers from their own country in Singapore.. If they hit woodland, for example, their own citizens back home sure buay song... because all their own relatives, brothers and sisters leh..

    Fire on our airports, naval bases and camps maybe... but I don't think they have that many rockets to use... if we can last through the first few wave of attacks till they dry out then it will be our showtime liao...

    Nothing wrong with that...

    Officially we only have SM-1 in our inventory. How you replace something which you don't have?

    We always have a history of showing off what we announce when we get it... The moment the new F-15SG comes... Same thing also... NDP fly past would show them to haolian also too...

    Be careful what we say here.
    Don't provoke any reaction from other countries and don't name them.
    Don't get belligerent and start posturing.
    It's only a tank. You need everything else to make it function as part of a whole system.
    Read Guderain and also on the battle of Kursk.

    Also from Jane's past issues, the "safety" distance of the 120mm gun was rated about 20km..
    That's okay if your shooting range and butt is in a wasteland but HERE..??
    20 clicks is like, is like Hougang to Clementi right?

    yup it wears the chobham armour developed near the village of Chobham in Surrey, England.
    of course the engine is American, its a gas guzzler!

    what do you mean "safety distance"? the distance behind the butt? well, we use a hillside for butt, so that's ok as long as the conducting officer makes damn sure the gun isn't pointed out of the zone.

    Emergency vehicles like Private Ambulances and Fire Engines (usually owned by Airports or Oil refineries) are also Road Tax exempt. So are vehicles not used on public roads like tractors and forklift.

    The Leopard 2A4 uses a big cannon 120mm L44. Is it also equipped with a big Canon 1Ds Mark II? hehe

    Hint: if our tankies go to war, they won't be fighting on home soil We gonna take the war to the enemy before they even reach our shores.

    If you are talking about making all units and services function as a complete system, then I think Singapore is way ahead of many countries in this region...

    We never need to use our military assets to provoke a reaction from them... Their election year automatic fire salvos here liao...
