About Scouts / Recce in the SAF
In the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF), Scouts play a vital role in gathering information, conducting reconnaissance, and providing critical intelligence to support military operations. Indeed, the role of scouts is diverse and can vary based on the specific branch of service. Here are some key aspects of the role of scouts in the SAF:
Reconnaissance and Surveillance
Scouts conduct reconnaissance missions, which involve gathering information about the enemy, terrain, and other relevant factors. They operate in small, highly mobile teams to remain undetected while observing and reporting on enemy activities.
Scouts are responsible for collecting intelligence through observation, photography, and other means. They provide valuable information about enemy positions, movements, and capabilities, enabling commanders to make informed decisions.
Scouts need strong communication skills to relay timely and accurate information to higher headquarters. They often use various communication methods, including radios and other advanced communication equipment.
