Nervin Perbu, 11, has always wondered what it is like to fire the powerful RBS 70 Ground-Based Air Defence system. In this year's PIONEER Kids special, Nervin joins his dad 2WO Perbu Mogan for firing practice to find out.

Check out these snapshots of Nervin as he learns to "fire" the RBS 70 Ground-Based Air Defence system at Chong Pang Camp!

My Daddy is a senior instructor who teaches trainees how to operate the RBS 70 Ground-Based Air Defence system.

I also learnt how to film a video, thanks to the PIONEER uncles.
