    Default SAF To Train FIBUA At Rochor Centre! Sinkies Don't Be Scared If You Hear Gunshots!



    SINGAPORE: The iconic Rochor Centre will be used as a firing ground for a military training exercise for a week beginning Saturday (Jul 15), the Ministry of Defence (MINDEF) confirmed on Friday.

    The estate is currently vacant, and is scheduled for demolition after the Government acquired the four blocks of flats to make way for the 21.5km-long North-South Expressway.

    "Where opportune, disused places like Rochor Centre are used for homeland security training as they provide realistic urban training opportunities for our forces," MINDEF said in response to queries by Channel NewsAsia.

    "This exercise is part of the SAF's (Singapore Armed Forces') efforts to strengthen its capabilities in homeland security operations," the ministry added.

    Notice of the military exercise was first given on Thursday on the Attorney-General's Chambers' Singapore Statutes Online website.




    Training ammunition and pyrotechnics will be used during the week-long exercise, MINDEF said, and the estate will be cordoned off to ensure public safety and to prevent public alarm.


    It added that residents in the area have already been informed of the exercise and advised to stay clear of the area.

    No date has yet been given for the demolition of Rochor Centre.

    They booked off 6 days to do FIBUA on these old blocks? Well, I guess the SAF must be getting better. Many years ago, the SAF conducted a study to see how long it would take to clear one block of HDB flats. Realistically, and not the wayang that they conduct out in the field. It took 3 weeks for them to clear one block. I guess that is a realistic scenario. Because they have to fight their way up the building, while the enemy is always in control of the high floors. A nightmare scenario.

    if flats are emptied out with no sandbags and other clutter, can clear by 6.9 days. if in real war, there will be debris, clutter, sandbags and most important of all, enemies, it will take more than 69 days for such a large complex. the battle of mosul just ended but it started over 9.6 months ago, and the last urban stronghold in western mosul took nearly 6.9 months to clear.

    Our SAF troops are the finest in SEA. They are the best trained, best equipped, and led by officers who are cream of the A-level and polytechnic cohort. I think 3 days would suffice.

    No need the SAF, just call Police Hotline and get our men in blue to clear ROCHOR. They are the best in Singapore anyone disagree.

    3 minutes should be enough. Why bother with FIBUA? Just flatten those flats with a bomber.

    I think they shouldn't waste time with such exercise.

    If Saf really find themselves fighting in sinkieland and HDB heartland, then the war is already lost.

    Its more a PR exercise to impress the locals and for the SAF chiefs to claim that they have improved their training doctrine. It does have value training wise but I think the agenda is trying to remain relevant to the locals.

    More shit coming out of your mouth again. Impress simi lancheow locals? Have u even been in any military force? There is a huge training element here. U think they are doing FIBUA training in Rochor to figure out how to stop enemies in Singapore? U are a fucking fool. The FIBUA training is for them to figure out to take buildings in JB and other northern cities.

    This would be useful training for our troops when we fight terrorists and islamist militants in JB.

    Our past to recent present SAF military doctrine is heavily based on the vietnam war with lots of jungle warfare or fighting in open areas. Modern warfare in the 21st century would be one of urban fighting, much like WW2 Stalingrad 70 years ago. SAF is modifying their doctrine after seeing the intensity of urban warfare between asymmetrical forces in places like fallujah, mosul, syrian civil war and even in marawi.

    FIBUA today is more than just about securing a small building or a group of small buildings like in the past.
