The main battle tank is undergoing "local familiarisation trials," the defence ministry told The Straits Times.

    The ministry announced in December that it planned to purchase the 66 refurbished Leopard 2A4s and put them into service around the middle of 2008. The Leopard is about three times heavier than the old SM1 light tanks. It tips the scale at 55 tonnes and is powerful enough to gun down targets three kilometres away.

    The main weapon is the German Rheinmetall L44 120-millimetre gun, which also arms tanks in Australia and the United States. About 3,000 of these battlefield heavyweights are currently in service in 12 countries.
    Cool...wonder will it be on static display or even put on a performance of its capabilities at AOH '07?

    I don't think that you can park at BCTC as there're guards manning the entrance.

    There is now a shelter structure for the guards to check your vehicle before entering Pasir Laba camp.

    The PLC vomit blood, even during exercise going into the camp, 3 persons have to exchange the 11B/NRIC for the camp pass per tonner.

    Air Force Open House organised on every alternate year, since last yeat already had one, the next one should be next year, 2008, unless there is a major change of plan.

    If I'm not wrong, this was the display board used at the Navy Open House to promote the Army Open House.

    The GS table isn't part of the background. How do I know? Cos I helped to set up and man the booth.

    Yup RSAF Open House should be held next year for the 40th Year of RSAF. So for all plane fanatics out there... Singapore Air Show and RSAF Open House will keep you on your toes!

    *time to get that longer lens to capture those birds in the air!!

    HARDWARE LAND
    Our Army's latest hardware on display, from the deadly APACHE to the heavy gun LEOPARD Main Battle Tank.

    Yes, you can bring your camera and long lenses to the Army Open house just like the Navy and Airforce Open house.
