The Republic of Singapore Air Force has launched 149 Squadron, its first local F-15SG unit at Paya Lebar Air Base.

The F-15SG Squadron will join the fighter group under the Air Combat Command, which plans, controls and executes air warfare operations.

Deputy Prime Minister and Defence Minister Defence Teo Chee Hean said the F-15SG squadron will enhance the Singapore Armed Forces’ (SAF) strength to deal with future threats.

The F-15SG multi-role fighter aircraft is equipped with state-of-the-art avionics and a sophisticated integrated sensor suite.

Hean said the F-15SG is a major enhancement to Singapore’s air defence capability, and will play a significant role in the SAF’s overall operations.

The F-15SG crew received training to operate and maintain the aircraft from the Mountain Home Air Force Base in the US.
