Over the past few weeks, soldiers from Headquarters 10th Singapore Infantry Brigade (10 SIB) and 5th Battalion Singapore Infantry Regiment (5 SIR) as well as soldiers from 1st Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division from the United States Army Pacific and 29th Infantry Brigade Combat Team from the Hawaii Army National Guard, took part in Exercise Tiger Balm.

Armies from both sides held a brigade-level command post exercise and strengthened their combat capabilities through a series of exercises, including live firing of the Terrex and Strykers at the Basic Main Range (BMR) and integrated urban training exercises at the Murai Urban Training Facility (MUTF). It was the first time that soldiers were able to train alongside both the Terrexes and the Strykers in Singapore, therefore enhancing their combat readiness through these vehicular platforms.

This annual exercise allows both armies to collaborate as well as share tactics, techniques and procedures, and is a hallmark of the excellent ties between both armies.
