Quick Glance: Singapore Army to Complete Transition to New Light Machine Gun by End-July
  • The Singapore Army will fully transition to a new light machine gun (LMG) by the end of July, as announced by the Ministry of Defence (MINDEF) on Wednesday (July 17).

  • The new sighting system of the LMG with a red dot sight and a 3x magnifier scope provides improved accuracy and allows for faster target acquisition, while the Picatinny rail can easily add accessories.
