Total Defence Display

Previously called the Dynamic Defence Display, the Total Defence Display (TDD) makes its return after 5 years. The segment will comprise of 2 parts, 'Defending Our Country' and 'Securing Singapore Together'. The TDD for NDP 2022 is put together by the SAF and Home Team with more than 500 participants and 50 assets are involved in the TDD.

'Defending Our Country' underscores the role of SAF in its efforts to protect Singapore's sovereignty and independence. This segment showcases an array of technologically advanced assets from the Singapore Army, the Republic of Singapore Navy (RSN), and the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF).

Families can expect to see the RSAF’s F-16C/D fighter aircrafts manoeuvring around the Marina Bay, the RSN’s Naval Divers jumping off an RSAF CH-47F Heavy Lift Helicopter into the waters of Marina Bay and the Singapore Army’s Leopard 2 Main Battle Tank driving onto the promenade at the floating platform.

The second part of TDD, 'Securing Singapore Together' showcases Singapore's inter-agency response to a range of peacetime contingency scenarios such as firefighting, first aid and counterterrorism operations.

Be at the edge of your seat, as for the first time at NDP, the Special Forces from the SAF Special Operations Task Force will be demonstrating a hostage rescue¬†from a ‚Äúhijacked bus‚ÄĚ.
