Singapore's new combat planes debut in biennial exercise

The Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) debuted the fighter aircraft (F-15SG) and Gulfstream 550 airborne early warning aircraft (G550-AEW) at the biennial multilateral air combat exercise in Darwin, Australia.

Codenamed Exercise Pitch Black, the exercise is being held from July 27 to Aug 16. It is attended by around 2,500 personnel and 100 aircraft.

Activities include day and night air combat operations and air-to-air refuelling missions.

The RSAF has been participating in Exercise Pitch Black since 1990.

This exercise provides the RSAF with opportunities to train under realistic operational scenarios, promotes mutual understanding as well as enhances interoperability with the United States Air Force and Marine Corps, Royal Australian Air Force and other air forces from Southeast Asia.
