At the Binturan shooting range in Penanjong Garrison, the Ukraine-made BTR-3E1 demonstrated its 30 mm canon, firing tracer rounds that left streaks of bright orange in the air, then rattled off its turret mounted machine gun, delivering lethal, live rounds at designated targets, several kilometres away.
