Army Open House 2017 Highlights

26 05 2017

Update (27 May 2017, 1900 hrs):
Army Open House 2017 has been extended to 29 May 2017 by popular demand


After a break of 5 years, the crowd-pulling Army Open House returns this weekend (27 and 28 May) at the F1 Pit building. Battle rides, dynamic performances and the Soldier Strong challenge are some of the highlights along with the mix of static exhibits, games for the young and matured and also an NS50 Showcase.  More information, including that related to an interactive app and how to collect limited edition collectibles can be found at the Singapore Army Facebook Page.  The Open house will also be travelling to Punggol (2 to 4 June) and Jurong East (9 to 11 June).

Some highlights:


Rides Galore

Ride on a M3G Raft (two M3G Rigs connected to form a self-propelled raft capable of travelling at 13 km/h in water). The M3G, which can also be configured as a floating bridge,, is one of two water rides, the other being the Lighter Amphibious Resupply Cargo V (LARC V). There are also Land Rides on the Light Strike Vehicle (LSV) Mk II, the Terrex Infantry Carrier Vehicle, BRONCO All Terrain Tracked Carrier and the Peacekeeper Protected Response Vehicle. Covered shoes are required of all those who wish to participate and physical queuing is not longer necessary (just register at the stand and an sms will be sent).

There are kiddie rides too! At the Kids Zone on Level 2 of the F1 Pit building.


Hitting the Wall

Revisit SOC with the Soldier Strong Challenge (like never sweat enough) – if you are game, it is one of the ways to land your hands on limited edition collectibles.


Have a Canteen Break 

Lots of food, surely better than an army camp canteen.


Chill Out at the air-conditioned NS50 Showcase and be reminded of Peng Kang Hill

The NS journey over the years.

Two reminders of the two activities most dreaded by National Servicemen of the past on a “trick-eye” style photo wall: log PT and Peng Kang Hill.

Take an Augmented Reality Photo and find it on http://ns50moments.com/.

Take a Pledge Photo, which will be shown on a wall and also on http://ns50moments.com/.


Catch the Dynamic Defence Display (at 10 am and 3 pm)


Come up close to Military Hardware

The Static Display includes hardware such as the Apache Attack Helicopter.
