Just thought of this idea of SAF settting up a Republic of Singapore Marine Corps [RSMC]. It fits in with our geography, being surrounded by water. Technically, it would require certain army, air force & navy units to be transferred to this new service, specifically BX IFVs, C-130 transport aircraft, CH-47 transport helicopters, AH-64D attack helicopters and Endurance-class LSTs. It would dovetail neatly with the new urban warfare unit [3SIR] being developed, although opswarfare still has some reservations for a urban warfare unit solely based on an infantry unit.
