    BTW do you notice that we seem to be carrying more these days?

    So for who think technology helps us carry less in battle, think of the typical Singapore mentality, more is better. The people who plan this have not been to battle.

    You will need to be agile and avoid being burdened with too many things to do combat.

    Ditch the useless stuff in battle, and carry only what you need. Since we cannot do that, then we need to be fit and train to carry the silly loads we are asked to.

    Remember the Falklands war? It was not the weapons, but the fitness of the Royal Marines that allowed them to defeat overwhelming odds.

    they have 2 types of RT.

    1) fail only 1 station: go into the advance level where it is call HELL training.
    2) fail more den 1 or 2: let you slack abit first den slowly build up the training.

    all singaporeans are obliged to serve the nation for 12 years (2yrs NS + 10yrs reservist)..if you default, you're committing a military offence.

    IIRC, if you skip IPPT, you're considered fail and have to attend RT. if you don't attend RT, fine is $50 for first time, 2nd time is $100, and 3rd would be DB. so don't say that SAF didn't give you a chance.
