Defence Technology Community 50th anniversary book

A book titled Engineering Singapore's Defence was released in Singapore this evening to mark the 50th anniversary of the republic's Defence Technology Community (DTC).

The opportunity to contribute to the first volume, which covers Land Systems, is deeply cherished. Background discussions and editorial meetings took place over many months over the past year and were not to be talked about.

In the above picture, you will see expertise representing armour, artillery, small arms, ammunition, underground and hardened structures, signals, unmanned vehicles and more. The picture represents only part of the team responsible for all four volumes.

Thank you for the tutorship, patience and the trust. This will be repaid many times over.

Hope military buffs will find the book interesting, despite the absence of official confirmation of weapon platforms and systems you may think we have.
