Since independence in 1965, Singapore military aviation has operated a wide, colourful swath of potent western warplanes. This large book is a lavishly illustrated study of those Republic of Singapore Air Force assets. Six chapters chronologically charting the whole tale:

  • Setting the Stage (1947-1968)
  • Taking Charge (1968-1979)
  • Going Supersonic (1979-1988)
  • Improving the Breed (1988-1998)
  • Strength and Resilience (1998-2008)
  • A Decisive and Deadly Force (2008-2020)

The book includes colour photos. B&W shots, colour profiles, camouflage schemes, unit heraldry, insignia, special markings. Coverage includes operational notes on aircraft, events, actions, units, equipment, personnel, and exercises – among many more subjects. Technical topics further distil airframe, armament, propulsion, and avionics details. And allied commentary on Singapore’s robust, indigenous “engineering and modification” capabilities naturally enjoys special focus.

Nor is coverage confined to the RSAF alone. Remarks log, for instance, examples of British, Australian, New Zealand, American, Russian, and French military aircraft in Singapore skies. And text recounts RSAF deployments and visits to other countries, as well. Notes on references, RSAF commanders, and abbreviations neatly conclude contents.
