The new generation of Armoured Fighting Vehicle (AFV) will replace the ageing ULTRA M113 AFV which has been in service since the early 70s. The Next Generation of AFV will provide Singapore armoured forces with enhanced firepower, protection, mobility and situational awareness.

The Next Generation Armoured Fighting Vehicle (AFV) will be the mainstay of the Singapore Armed Forces' (SAF) mechanised forces, operating alongside the Bionix Infantry Fighting Vehicle, to fulfill the SAF's operational requirements.

The new armoured fighting vehicle was developed together with the Defence Science and Technology Agency and the Singapore defence industry.
