    Right,being the nationalistic me,i want to discuss with all you good people about the prospect of the Singapore Armed Forces.....Can we win against our neighbours who are using T-52s while we are stuck on AMX-13s?

    1) what is a T-52? Do you mean T-54/55?

    2) you also have 150 modified Centurians, and a pretty decent airforce.

    Israel has been holding off the rest of that area of the world for many years now. Singapore can do the same. :D

    yea,but Isreal has people willing to fight to the death for the Holy Land...But singapore has too much teenagers leaning to western cultures and long to be gone from Singapore,which they think is restricting their freedom. I am afraid it's hard to find people willing to fight anymore here....szigh..........

    at least our airforce can still dominate the air compare to other south-east asia country, not to mention we are still the only one with subs around.

    ah,a fellow Singaporean!

    The fighters may win,but it;'s the troops on the ground that will either expand or contract our borders.

    And well,The malaysians have got subs now.Haven't you heard?

    Malaysia haven't got the subs IN Malaysia at least until 1010 I heard, also we are *rumored* to have new MBT, but that has not been confirmed yet, the MBT from what I heard is going to replace our centurions.

    Kaiser - from the Wikipedia link you posted:

    I know that Wikipedia is not 100% though...

    so...

    from http://www.historyofwar.org/articles/we ... urion.html

    "The Centurion remains in service with Sweden, Denmark, Austria, who are likely to replace them with the Leopard 2, as well as Israel, Singapore and South Africa."

    Yes yes, but the thing is,none of my friends that have worked in or with the armoured corp have actually seen the thing,much less use it.It is rumoured we keep them somewhere safe where the malaysians will never know.....

    I guess the US-Navy would be glad to help you, with some airstrikes by the USS Kitty Hawk. It´s next to you in Yokosuka, Japan and the Headquarters for the Thirteenth Air Force are located in Guam, which can provide aircover with heavy bombers :wink:

    Japan isn't exactly very near us.
    Our military have estimated that once an invasion starts,3 Days is how long we can hold out. Besides,the US military has tons of red tape to get through before they can come to us,and there's always the chance they won't.
