    S'pore boosts air defence with new missile system

    Singapore's air defence will be beefed up with the acquisition of a new state-of-the-art missile system, announced Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen in Parliament yesterday. The Aster-30 surface-to-air missile system, which is used by countries such as France and Italy, will replace the Republic of Singapore Air Force's I-Hawk system, which has been in service for 30 years.
