Singapore Army unveils Bionix II infantry fighting vehicle


Singapore Army Introduces Bionix II Infantry Fighting Vehicle

The Army unveiled its latest platform, the Bionix II Infantry Fighting Vehicle, at a commissioning event at Lim Chu Kang Armour Training Area this afternoon.
Minister for Defence Teo Chee Hean witnessed a synchronised assault by a battalion from the 4th Singapore Armoured Brigade (4 SAB) during a demonstration showcasing the enhanced firepower and networked capabilities of the Bionix II.
The manoeuvres and firepower display were orchestrated using the Army's Battlefield Management System (BMS).
The introduction of the Bionix II is part of the ongoing transformation of the Army into a leaner and closely networked force.
Besides delivering a mightier punch of firepower, the Bionix II also provides better crew protection and connectivity. It can be integrated with an array of platforms, including Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), the Primus Self-Propelled Howitzer (SPH), and the Bronco Mortar Track Carrier (MTC).
These capabilities will enable the 3rd Generation Army to respond rapidly and strike with precision against a spectrum of threats.
The Bionix II is jointly developed by the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF), Defence Science and Technology Agency (DSTA), and Singapore Technologies Engineering.
This reflects the SAF's strong ties and effective collaboration with local defence agencies, and MINDEF's continued investment in conceiving and developing cutting-edge indigenous defence solutions.
