    F-35 in Singapore Air force

    In February 2003, Singapore joined the JSF program System Design & Development (SDD) Phase, as a Security Co-operation Participant (SCP).

    The initial order will be 12 F-35 aircrafts; eventually as many as 50 aircrafts may be procured.

    The Big News is:
    Singapore Air force already has 8 AEW&C aircrafts.
    Pakistan Air force will receive its first AEW&C aircraft this year.
    Indian Air force has 1 AEW&C aircraft.

    Singapore a small country with a Big Air power.

    they dont even have an airspace to fly and practice, they use Thailand's airspace for these purposes.......they are a cornered air force. by default

    This the exact reason why people consider Pakistan a threat with nukes with them...
    here we are doing a simple air power analysis and the first statement from a Pakistani member is that whatever Singapore has it does not matter .. we have nukes and they are in our range !!!!!!

    For their size Singapore has quite a potent airforce ..
    they can defence their airspace quite well i believe and with awacs to monitor that tiny space there will be no gaps.
    Also introdection of F-35 .. will give quite a lot more bite

    What use will 8 AWACS be to Singapore ? One can easily cover it's entire area.
    And why would such a small country need mid-flight refuellers ? Their planes would be never out of range of a base !

    Because if the war comes into or over Singapore they have already lost. Singapore war doctrine calls for fighting outside the country over the oceans...which is why they have a lot of mid field refuelers and AWACS.
