What happens if a commercial plane has been hijacked by terrorists and is heading towards Singapore? Exercise Vigilant Shield, held on 14 Mar, tests the coordinated efforts of the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF), Singapore Police Force (SPF) and Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) in tackling such threats from the air.
It's the first in Singapore to be able to fire two different kinds of state-of-the-art missiles, and it can take down both enemy aircraft and munitions. And now it's ready for battle.
Two thousand soldiers, four Task Forces and numerous military assets deployed on land, at sea and in the air. All ready to secure Singapore for one historic meeting.
