A training operation led by the Singapore Armed Forces’ Special Operations Task Force (SOTF) was completed at Singapore’s Formula 1 pit building on Monday, August 2nd. Two Super Puma helicopters stealthily approached the three-story structure in the dead of night and allowed the troops inside to fast rope down to the roof. Once inside, the SOTF quickly neutralized threats and responded to the mock hostage situation that was prepared. Conducting counter-terrorism exercises in an urban environment provides a realistic training opportunity to improve homeland security.
