The Singapore Army has upgraded its longest-serving variant of the Bionix infantry fighting vehicle.

The Singapore Army has made improvements to the ST Engineering Bionix 1, the first iteration of the country’s domestically developed IFV.

Known as the Bionix 1+ (BX1+), the upgraded vehicle features an improved fire control system that supports lasing and range-finding, as well as the installation of a battlefield management system (BMS) data link.

Introduced to the army in around 2020, the BX1+ quietly made its public debut in a 2021 road parade. However, MINDEF never made any official introduction of the type.

The BX1+ still retains its 25mm Bushmaster cannon, albeit modified with a new muzzle brake.
