A Hunter IFV on display.

  • Basic Description:
    • The Hunter AFV is an Infantry Fighting Vehicle developed by Singapore’s ST Kinetics and DSTA that entered service in 2019. Under development since 2006 to replace the M113 that has been in service since the 1970’s, in 2017 the Ministry of Defense awarded a contract to ST Kinectics for the production of Singapore’s Next Generation Armoured Fighting Vehicle (NGAFV). The Hunter IFV features technologies of other advanced IFV’s such as the Rafael Sampson Mk. II remote controlled turret armed with the 30mm Bushmaster II, Spike-LR ATGM’s, enhanced armor capable of stopping 30mm autocannon fire, Laser Warning System, a HMX3000 Hydro-mechanical Infinitely Variable Transmission capable of going forward and reverse at max speed, a 720hp power pack, and more. The digitized structure of the Hunter allows it to integrate with the Leopard 2SG, and the Bionix II IFV, allowing effective command and control. The Hunter’s light weight allows it to maneuver the urban terrain of Singapore and to meet its security needs. The Hunter is a revolutionary IFV that is expected to serve the Singaporean Army for years to come.

    • The Hunter IFV is a highly protected, heavily armed infantry fighting vehicle capable of reaching 70km/h in both forward and reverse. It is equipped with the latest technology that would allow it to surpass even the deadly Puma S1 and VCC-80 currently found in game. It would be effective of engaging targets from long range with its deadly Spike-LR ATGM’s and would be a sufficient multi-role vehicle.
    • With it’s capabilities, it would best be suited around battle rating 10.7 (realistic).
