Trained to land using specialised techniques, The Singapore Army’s Guards are elite infantry soldiers of the SAF who are able to deploy rapidly in all sorts of terrains, such as the rugged Shoalwater Bay Training Area, in Queensland, Australia. In this simulated battlefield, the Guardsmen operate together with The Republic of Singapore Air Force helicopters for Exercise Wallaby 2017. Flying in fast and low on an integrated strike mission, they leave the enemy little time to react. The Guards are an elite infantry formation in the Singapore Armed Forces specializing in rapid deployment, heliborne and amphibious operations, maneuver warfare and urban combat. Highly mobile, they are the expeditionary spearhead of the Singapore Army. The formation traces its roots back to the 7th Singapore Infantry Brigade and has been actively involved in several National and Army Day events since the establishment of the modern Guards unit.
