"Fire and move looks easy to do.
I play all-the-time on L F D two.
Carry rifle and L B V.
Suddenly I run like si-ssy”

I find it very fun because... like you... get to... keep the blanks... and your... I think it's quite fun.
The firing weapon drill... for me, it was actually quite interesting. I learnt how to move and how to spot the enemy and... what... the proper processes to do when contacted.
[Gunfire!]
On!
[Gunfire!]
And it's quite tiring as you have to keep standing up and prone everything. But then... I... I don't really care about the fatigue because I find it, this drill, quite fun.
Yes, I find it quite tiring actually. Because... from the... a bit of fatigue yesterday, so it makes everything... that much harder... But overall, it was quite... bearable.
Enemy overrun!

Group eyes!
Group eyes!
Actually... it's not very difficult. Because, as long as you keep a look out on the people beside you, so you can move on easily.
I would say it's... quite... all right to coordinate. But, sometimes... over the loud fires of the blanks and the thick bushes...It's not really... very easy, to see the person on your left and your right... and your IC.
Group!
It's basically a drill to... to teach them how to react to enemy fire and also to assault the enemy position. To coordinate their firing so that... 1 man moves, right?
The other will be covering fire for him, so that when he moves, the enemy will be forced to take cover and...
Group!
Back to check!
My 6 o'clock!
Follow me!
Follow you!
Instructor: CMS is basically using a paint ball pellet in the M-16 gun.
Okay, the M-16 gun is modified, to be able to deliver the paint ball pellet rounds. Okay?
So why this is done is for you all to have an effective and realistic portrayal of fire and movement.
It's an inter-company paint ball fight with Ninja. I'm quite looking forward to it. It's time to put into practice all our training and I believe we can do it.
I'm very excited. Paint ball is a very exciting game so I'm all out for it. Recruit Thiaghu is our Detail IC. We have absolute confidence in him. He's very good with his drills so he will lead us well to win this battle.
Our selected IC was Recruit Thiaghu and I have a lot of faith in him. He's...a leader.
We'll own Ninja. We'll own them flat.

Move to the rear!
Cease fire!
(I think we won. Congrats.)
(How come you ran to the flag there?)
I'm very proud of them. We actually go force on force with another company and I'm proud to say that my platoon did absolutely well, we've won 5 out of 6 games.
I think it was quite impressive that we moved quite fast and we moved really fast that... We were actually quite stunned when we got to the flag. Quite funny that Ninja was like, I think 4 bounds away.
Recruit Thiaghu did great. He pushed the team and he lead the team very well and we managed to win the game.
I think my IC did very well. He managed to get us all there and get us back safely and none of us got hit. That's an accomplishment and I think he did very well.
