In addition to a 30mm automatic cannon and coax machine gun, the new turret integrates two independent sights, and two multi-purpose guided missiles, recessed launchers for smoke grenades.

This all-in-one system can locate the fire source, enabling the crew to return fire effectively with a Samson 30 unmanned turret or by interfacing with other fighting platforms via the BMS network.

According to the GlobalSecurity.org, the NGAFV will be the mainstay of the Singapore Armed Forces’ (SAF) mechanised forces, operating alongside the Bionix Infantry Fighting Vehicle, to fulfil the SAF’s operational requirements. Developed together with the Defence Science and Technology Agency and Singapore Technologies Engineering Ltd (ST Engineering), the Next Generation AFV will provide armored forces with enhanced firepower, protection, mobility and situational awareness.

ST Engineering announced 22 March 2017 that its land systems arm has been awarded a contract by the Ministry of Defence (MINDEF) for the production and supply of the Next Generation Armoured Fighting Vehicle (AFV). Under the contract, ST Kinetics will also provide integrated logistics support which includes spares, training and documentation.
