Singapore Armed Forces

The Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) is the military arm of the Total Defence of the Republic of Singapore; as well as the military component of the Ministry of Defence. Total Defence (or TD) is the name of Singapore’s comprehensive defence strategy, adapted from countries like Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Switzerland, Austria, Ukraine and Russia. It is based on the understanding that besides military action, aggressors can also attack the country by wrecking its economic systems, tearing its social fabric apart, targeting Singaporeans’ beliefs and commitment to defence, and its ability to recover from disasters, both natural and man-made. The SAF has three services: the Singapore Army, the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) and the Republic of Singapore Navy (RSN). The SAF protects the interests, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Singapore from external threats. The SAF relies heavily on a large pool of conscripts in the active and reserve forces. It has an active strength of around 71,600 personnel and is capable of mobilising over a million reservists. National Servicemen (NSmen) make up more than 80% of its military defence system and form the backbone of the SAF.
