27th ASEAN Armies Rifle Meet – Competition Highlights

The Singapore Army hosted the 27th ASEAN Armies Rifle Meet (AARM), an annual army shooting competition among the 10 ASEAN countries (Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesian, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam) from 6 to 22 Nov 2017. There are a total of 550 participants competing in five disciplines – Carbine, Machine Gun, Pistol Ladies, Pistol Men and Rifle.
The 27th AARM’s motto “Comrades in AARM” emphasises and promotes solidarity among ASEAN armies, reflecting the aim and purpose of AARM. The shooting competition continues to bolster professional interaction, and strengthen social bonds and camaraderie among the ASEAN armies.
The annual AARM serves as an important avenue for the continued renewal of ties among the armies of member countries… AARM 2017 will provide ample opportunities for shooters to pit their marksmanship skills against one another.
For the first time, the AARM pistol competition held indoors at the Multi-Mission Range Complex (MMRC). The rest of the competition will be held at SAF’s outdoor ranges, namely the SAFTI 300m Range, and the Nee Soon 500m Range.
The ASEAN Army Chiefs and Sergeant Majors also held on 21 Nov 2017 for the 18th ASEAN Chiefs of Army Multilateral Meeting and the 7th ASEAN Sergeant Majors Annual Meeting. These annual meetings serve to strengthen professional ties and regional cooperation, especially in dealing with transnational security threats.
