PS(D) Visits Troops at Ex Daring Warrior.

Permanent Secretary (Defence) Mr Chan Yeng Kit visited our soldiers training at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, USA on 19 Nov. This year's Exercise Daring Warrior 2014 (XDW 2014) was another opportunity to hone the SAF's air-land integration capabilities. Our Defence Minister (http://on.fb.me/1C07tEM) has also put up a video of the coordinated attacks using the HIMARS and AH-64D Apache Attack Helicopters!

During the exercise, the SAF and the US Army also conducted a bilateral integrated live-firing exercise. The bilateral exercise involved some 120 troops from the Oklahoma Army Reserve National Guard, 1-14th Field Artillery Regiment and 3-13th Field Artillery Regiment. 

Commandant US Army Field Artillery School and Chief of Field Artillery, BG William A. Turner shares his thoughts on the exercise, "What we have been able to see here from the Singapore Armed Forces is really very impressive. Being able to integrate air, ground components to attack and engage various targets; it is a complex operation and is not easy to do."

In the visit, Mr Chan also interacted with soldiers from the different functional groups involved in this exercise. XDW 2014 is conducted from 4 Nov to 23 Nov 2014 with the participation of about 340 soldiers from the SAF.
