The gap is about three years for the air force and navy open houses. (Airforce: 2003, 2006; Navy: 2004, 2007). Singapore Airshow will be next year..and I will be there too!

Below left hand corner, there's a GS table but the soldier still wants to put the Panasonic toughbook on his lap.;)

What's the frequency for the Army open house, annually ?

I believe the bus to the camp will be from Boon Lay temporary interchange.

From the Straits Times, the Leopard tanks are in Singapore. Hope that it'll be at the open house.

HTH.

9 June 2007 - Issue : 733


The first of 66 German Leopard tanks has arrived in Singapore to replace some of the armed forces' light tanks, which are more than 40 years old, a newspaper reported on June 8, cited by Deutsche Presse-Agentur (dpa). 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.

I wouldn't recommend taking the 193 bus as you've to walk for about 15-20 minutes to Pasir Laba Camp.

I took the bus before when I did my BCTC at Pasir Laba Camp.

The Army Open House clashes with the Comex 2007.



Nothing concrete from Mindef website about the Army Open House.
