New indoor firing range complex to sharpen SAF firepower
Singapore's soldiers will now spend a lot more time sharpening their marksmanship at the Republic's latest indoor firing range that went fully-operational on Friday.
The new Multi-Mission Range Complex will help combat troops to increase their markmanship training by up to 60 per cent.
This is because the three-storey marksmanship training centre allows more soldiers to hone their skills within a shorter time. With the new complex, 900 soldiers can complete their shooting tests within a day. Previously, they would take two or three days.
The complex is also the world's first marksmanship training centre to house seven different firing ranges that can simulate both day and night shooting environment. Soldiers will be put through scenarios that hone their instincts and ability to judge if they are shooting a friend or foe.
