Safkar Indopura 2017

Under heavy enemy fire, more than 400 Singapore and Indonesian troops fought together, storming and capturing a series of buildings in quick succession, clearing the area for Leopard 2 main battle tanks to roll in. The combined field battalion exercise at Murai Urban Training Facility near Lim Chu Kang on Monday (Nov 20) was the culmination of the annual flagship exercise between the two infantries. Leopard 2 Main Battle Tanks took part for the first time in this year’s Exercise Safkar Indopura, marking a deepening of defence cooperation between both sides. These tanks added to the complexity of the mission, and allowed the crew from different armies to exchange knowledge. Both Indonesian Army and Singapore army operate Leopard 2 Main Battle Tank. They included two that were operated by combined crews of four men each. Exercise Safkar Indopura, held annually since 1989, began on Nov 13 this year.
