Singapore inaugurates Heron UAV squadron

The Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) has inaugurated the Israel Aircraft Industries Heron 1 Unmanned Aerial Vehicle into its inventory in a ceremony held at Murai Camp on Wednesday. The RSAF's Heron 1s are operated by 119 Sqn and will replace the Searcher 2 UAV, which has been in service with the RSAF since 1994. With the Heron 1 now in service with the new squadron, it is unclear what will happen to 128 Sqn, which operated the Searcher 2.

Murai camp, adjacent to Tengah Airbase in Singapore's west, has traditionally been home for the RSAF's UAV operations.
