The SAF and the Bundeswehr (German Armed Forces) have successfully conducted Exercise Panzer Strike at the Oberlausitz Military Training Area, Germany.

I'm wondering if Singapore actually shipped their own Leos back to Europe or if these 2A4s were phased-out German models that would be passed to the SAF after the exercise.

These orange-tinted goggles might not be so useful in terms of camouflage. The guy in the background blends in quite well with this forest except for his eye-area.

That's interesting. It might have something to do with enhancing visual contrast in a predominantly green surrounding.
