Terrex vehicles return home, sent 
to camp for routine checks

The nine Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) armoured vehicles held in Hong Kong for more than two months arrived in Singapore yesterday.

Singapore's Ministry of Defence said the nine Terrex infantry carrier vehicles and other equipment, which were seized on Nov 23, arrived at 2.40pm yesterday, and would be transported to an SAF camp for post-training administration.

"The standard post-training administration for all vehicles and equipment include thorough serviceability checks and routine maintenance," the ministry's statement added.

<> The SAF Terrexes have returned home in Singapore. They will be transported back to base camp to undergo detailed checks, which will take a few days. I am proud of how Singaporeans rallied together during this episode. Thank you for your support and encouragement. The Singapore Army
