ROODEWAAL ARTILLERY RANGE, South Africa (Reuters) - South Africa's air force showed off its military might on Thursday with precision bombing and helicopter gunships firing fusillades of rockets just days ahead of an unprecedented "peace enforcing" deployment to eastern Congo.

Two months after 13 troops were killed by rebels in Central African Republic in South Africa's heaviest military losses since the end of apartheid, Pretoria is gearing up to send 1,000 soldiers to Democratic Republic of Congo's volatile border with Rwanda and Uganda.

Navy commences upgrade of fourth strike craft

by Dean Wingrin, May 10, 6:20 am

The SA Navy's ambitions to boost its offshore maritime patrol capability took a step forward on Wednesday when the fourth and final Warrior-class strike craft left Simon's Town for refit in Durban, where it will be converted into an offshore patrol vesel.


It was revealed last year that the Navy was keen to retain three Warrior-class (ex-Minister-class) strike craft as offshore patrol vessels (OPV) for as long as possible. The Navy subsequently decided to retain a fourth vessel in service as well, with all undergoing a Life Extension Programme.
SAN is getting her other 2 ex strike crafts up and running. Plan is to keep them going for at least 5 more years or until the biro OPV's (corvets) are up and runing.

The upgrade will entaial.
Reverbishing all electronics and mechnaical sytems and hull repair.

Aft 76mm gun is removed. Replaced with 2 quik launch ramps for insernstion force. And extra accomdastion

Arment will be
Foward 76mm
2 20mm
2 12.7mm

Cybicom Atlas Defence offering small boats to South African Navy

by Guy Martin, April 25, 1:09 pm

Cybicom Atlas Defence (CAD) and Rhino Marine are offering their new nine metre long polyethylene boats to the South African Navy for duties like harbour patrol, boarding operations and special forces deployment.


This reflects a new partnership bringing together a boat builder and a mission system integrator to deliver a local optimized turnkey solution, CAD said.

The new nine metre demonstrator boat is currently undergoing sea trials and will be made available to the Navy for evaluation, CAD said, with a demonstration scheduled to take place in Cape Town tomorrow.

New small boats demonstrated to the SA Navy

by Dean Wingrin, April 29, 1:23 pm

Senior operational, logistic and maintenance officers from the South African Navy (SAN) got a taste of a new family of fast support boats which could enter service in the next few years.


Three prototype boats, all manufactured of high-density polyethylene (HDPE), were demonstrated to the Navy for the first time last week. While the focus was on the 9 metre boarding boat, a 6.7 metre multipurpose boat and a small workboat were also put through their paces on a beautiful Cape morning in False Bay.

Feature: SANDF – Optimum Force Design

by Helmoed Römer Heitman, May 9, 10:13 am

The 'Battle of Bangui' in the Central African Republic in March and its aftermath should cause government to think about what sort of Defence Force South Africa needs. While the troops fought magnificently, the Defence Force had no means of either promptly reinforcing or extracting them. A similar challenge could have arisen in November when M23 rebels occupied Goma in the DRC.



South Africa cannot afford to become involved in security matters on the continent when the defence budget does not allow for it.

This article sets out one possible interim force design allowing the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) to execute its present missions and develop a small contingency reserve.

Essentially the Defence Force would be able to:
oPatrol and protect our land borders, maritime borders and zones (including islands) and airspace.
oPatrol shipping routes critical to South Africa, for instance the Mozambique Channel;
oSupport the Police in anti-terrorist operations;
oRespond effectively to threats to vital external interests, for instance the Khatse Dam in Lesotho and the Cahora Bassa power station and Maputo harbour in Mozambique;
oConduct small non-combatant evacuations, for instance embassy staff;
oReact promptly at combat-group strength with air and naval support to a security crisis within the SADC or in an adjacent country, with follow-on forces for twelve months;
oSustain the current peace support commitments in Darfur and the DRC;
oMaintain a contingency force of approximately brigade strength and equivalent reserve capacity in the Air Force and Navy.
A good a simple way to get the SANDFf combat ready.

The South African military has intrigued me lately, with their innovation in such things as the M32 grenade launcher, and G6 howitzer!

They good and all. But the SANDF has a lot of other world class sytems. Such has
M4 commando morta. That can be carried with a morta round in the tube.
GI30 30mm autocanon. One of the best in the world
A-darta 5 gen IR AAM
Extra extra.

We all so pionerd the MRAP and have some great vechicls for oming up. Like the RG35.

Some of the less photo happy sytems are all so great. The SANDF developed it's own data link sytem. How many countries out side of nato have there own data link. Some of of our radios are all so cool.

It seems like when it comes to military technological innovation, South Africa is like the Honeybadger-it doesn't care what anyone else does, it's gonna do what it's gonna do! How apt that the Ratel is named after the Honeybadger!

But seriously-you guys kinda gave NATO (or whoever it was that wouldn't give you much of anything-I forget) the finger, and said "we're gonna make our own stuff then!" In a sense that's kinda cool I think.

I read of heard somewhere that the G6 was one of, if not the first of its kind of mobile howitzers-because can't it do the firing-at-multiple-trajectories-so-all-shells-hit-simultaneously thing? Sorry-don't know how else to describe it.

Yep. We don't give a s#*'

That true. If we can't get it over seas we make it our self. The latest one is the data link. NATO told us straight we not geting there data link. So we made our's.

Yep one of only a few that can do it.

Years of underfunding, coupled with ever increasing demands on the South African military machine, have and are creating more and more difficult conditions for the SA National Defence Force (SANDF) to work effectively.

SA Army Chief, Lieutenant General Amos Masondo, said funding shortages were evidencing themselves in, among others, a lack of progress on new equipment acquisition; no suitable exit mechanism for “elderly” members of the Army to leave the force; facilities that needed urgent repair to make them properly habitable and insufficient, “not the right” recruits coming through the military skills development system.
in short
SANDF is suvering from the 1990s years of all most zero budget and now being over streched.

This alone shows how remarkably well the South African Military machine operates. Even while severely under funded and overstretched, the SA Military still manages to perform their endless military obligations, throughout Africa, exceptionally well. The DRC operation is a good example of this...

So according to Wikipedia, and what it looks like from a picture posted above, the South African Army essentially uses the Galil (the R4). Probably a pretty nice choice, though interesting, partly because when Israel makes something, it's essentially just with Israeli needs in mind.

Israel was one of only a few countries we could deal with. Hence the R4. It is basicaly a galil with only a few small difrrenses. Mainly it is built to our standads and the but is a bit loinger. But the desghine is the same.
