    Arrow Welcome RSAF F15SG to Singapore

    Apr 5, 2010
    1st F-15SG jets in action
    By Teh Joo Lin

    SINGAPORE'S first squadron of F-15SGs officially started operating on home soil on Monday afternoon, about five years after they were bought.

    The 149 Squadron will join the fighter group under the Republic of Singapore Air Force's Air Combat Command, which executes air warfare operations.

    At an inauguration ceremony, held at the Paya Lebar Airbase, which the Defence Ministry described as a 'significant milestone' in the development of the air force's advance fighter capabilities, Deputy Prime Minister and Defence Minister Teo Chee Hean said the F-15SGs will also play an important role in the Singapore Armed Forces overall operations, including its ability to 'deal decisively' with future threats.

    Officers and specialists from the squadron had been training in the United States since last May to operate and maintain the twin-seater jets, which are considered one of the top multi-role fighter planes in the world.

    The F-15SG can fly farther and carry more bombs than other fighters in the RSAF, and has an advanced radar system that has never been sold outside the United States.

    B52 is a passe. Nowadays carpet bombing is not the preferred way. Precision bombing is the way to go. =)

    It's just inauguration at PLAB. I think it should still be based at TAB. TAB houses most of the fighter squadrons. But why you wanna see? Damn noisy la haha..
