Chief of Army, MG Melvyn Ong, emphasised that the successful operationalisation of the SAFARI enables the Army to “leverage on technological advancements to enhance our capabilities while right sizing manpower demands”.

With the introduction of the SAFARI WLR, the battery size will be reduced from the usual 18 men crew to 11 men. The newest early warning technology of the SAFARI will also“strengthen our networked sense and strike capabilities” and ensure that our troops “will be better protected, more efficient and deadlier in the battlefield”.

The SAFARI Weapon Locating Radar is mounted to the second vehicle of the two-sections Bronco tracked all-terrain vehicle.

The Bronco All Terrain Tracked Carrier vehicle is a twin chassis multi-purpose articulated tracked carrier jointly developed by ST Kinetics and the Defence Science & Technology Agency (DSTA) for the Singapore Army.
