New Gear for Singapore Special Forces

29 Mei 2017

The Special Operations Task Force (SOTF) of the Singapore Armed Forces has inducted a series of new personal equipment and firearms.

A notable additional is the Heckler & Koch (HK) MP7 personal defence weapon, which was carried on SOTF operatives conducting a parachute insertion into the Army Open House show site from 27-29 May. 

SOTF examples of the MP7 were seen with a silencer and an EOTech or Trijicon red-dot sight mounted on a Picatinny rail. 

Shephard understands that the MP7 was inducted by the SOTF in the last 1-2 years, although they also use the FN Herstal P90 depending on the type of operations. The unit also prefers the HK416 assault rifle, which comes in 10-inch and 14-inch barrel versions, and the smaller-calibre FN Five-SeveN as its sidearm. 

ST Kinetics has also developed a Compact Personal Weapon, with conversions for either 9mm, 5.7mm or 4.6mm rounds. Shephard understands that the weapon is currently under production.

This is the first time the SOTF had showcased deployment via parachute insertion in tactical gear. Also of interest are new black camouflage coveralls, which are different to the black tactical uniform seen in most units. 
Other accessories seen on SOTF operatives were Thales Angenieux night-vision goggles.

Singapore’s SOTF is a combination of the army’s Commandos, Special Operation Force and the navy’s Naval Diving Unit. It was formed in 2009 to meet the full spectrum of terrorist threats. 

Usually kept under wraps, the SOTF has been active in many events in recent years to provide the public with greater confidence against potential threats.

  1. The SOTF is like the US JSOC?

  2. So, more ammunition calibers for light infantry? Beside 7.62 and 5.56, there will be 5.7 and 4.6.

    For the CQB, what are the advantages 5.7 versus 4.6?

  3. apakah SOTF hanya mengandalkan teknologi daripada skill individu?

    1. It's all about men behind the gun. AASAM 2017 Indonesian Army beat Australian Army.

  4. I think Singaporean should also improve their Soldiers morale. It should be balance with their quality military machines. Experienced are also a big contribution in case.

    1. Lem 1. What do you know of Singaporean soldiers morale when you yourself is not a Singaporean and therefore not in the position to know that. Singaporean soldiers are among the recepients of best training in Southeast Asia

      Hapus
    2. Aymokay. Nobody here doubts their training quality and tech. BUT training is way different than real battle.

      Tell me how often has the SOTF been deployed since it's creation? As far as I know there has only been one high profile deployment for SQ 117 hijacking and several minor roles in Afghanistan like reconstruction efforts after Operation Blue Ridge etc.

      Training wise, most big ASEAN country's SF have similar quality training with more experience to back it up in the case of Indonesia and Philippines for example.

      Hell, I doubt any country in South East Asia has better marksmen than Indonesia as we have dominated the AASAM shooting competition of the Australian Army for more than 5 years in a row now. And that also translates to one of the main quality of special forces soldiers.

      The only true edge Singapore has is in technology. Their soldiers are supported by some of the best network centric technology out there and easily the best in ASEAN. But then again, it's the men behind the guns that matters more.

    3. GerhardA. Your point is very clear but you miss the my point. The point I am driving at here is, one should not belittle or smear the capability of other people.

      Hapus
    4. GerhardA.... Hey shit head??????? You guys want to know how strong we are??? Try to hit us first and we show you.
      1. The pinoy struggle to defeat abu sayyaf.
      2. Indonesian soldier is the most un-profestional in asia.. how they ambushed indonesia national polis barracks with machine gun and kill few personal, how they tortured irian jaya prisoner's, how they abuse new recruits and i can say more if i want too.

      Hapus
    5. GerhardA hey Shit head... the sq117 hijacking incident is our first operations and the order they give is simple KILL ALL THE TERRORIST AND TAKE NO PRISONER'S. THE LASTS TERRORIST BEEN SHOOT POINT BLANK IN THE HEAD 1/2 METER AWAY. IF OUR OLD SOF CAN DO THAT.. IMAGINED THE SOFT???
      PINOY???? THE DISASTERS OPERARION OF HONG KONG TOURISTS BUS HIJACKINGS?? EXPLAIN TI ME

      Hapus
    6. Don't be stupid everyone knows that without your allies you're nothing. You know as well as I know, if we strike you first, we have to face the whole commonwealth plus possibly the UN. Try strike us first, so we can show you the full might of our military without worrying over your stupid treaty.

      And what have your SF done after that? Nothing. No real threat. Maybe some minor role in Afghanistan like reconstruction ops but there the US plays the major role. Indonesia unprofessional? Dream on. Well respected in UNIFIL, dominated AASAM 10 years in a row, multiple spec ops operation like Woyla, Sinar Kudus, etc.

      You can be loud but at least have some brain la. Loud and no brain is the worst kind of scum.

    9. Even if u win the competition doesnt mean much except ur accuracy is good. So long as u hit ur target u have a high chance of a good kill that is what matters.Training wise idk one thing is for sure they wont send the sotf for competions as they are always kept hidden. They do however train alongside soecial forces of other nations.

    12. I don't think Singapore special forces can compare to Indonesia special forces.But I do know that Gurkhas contingents are placed in SG.Based on the bilateral exercise with us Australians,SG equipment is very technology advanced in South East Asia.

    13. Indonesia is peace country...but if you want war...nothing else matter....kill em all..and dark side has gone...Nembak ae gak juara mau perang...owh singa odong2...

  10. Indons and Pinoys are so full of shit. Having small operations against lesser trained rebels in the jungle cannot be counted as real experience as compared to conventional forces. By the fact that much of these operations end up not bearing any success tells a lot about your dumb military, which are just full of hot air. Look at Indons offensive capability, don't even dream about touching Singapore. We will hurt you real bad and tear your country apart and make sure it will become a failed state ripe for colonialism again. Piece of shitheads!

  11. GerhardA. I was trying to catch Lem1 to compromise his nationality, that is the reason why i agitated him for some discussion. He's been venting out ridiculous and offending comments against other nationalities like an uneducated moron without any finness and poising himself as Filipino. Being a Filipino myself, i can sense he is not. But look whom we caught instead, the mother of all scumbags here, now we know Dark side is a Singaporean whose basis for a country's greatness is based on materiality and not on the virtues of its people. I wont take this against Singaporeans, i know lots of them are good people but to Dark side, he deserves to be numbered with the lowliest beings existing on planet earth today.
