They’re back! The Department of Defence and the SA National Defence Force are once again partnering with the Rand Show, promising visitors hours of interactive entertainment with extensive exhibitions and action-filled shows and demonstrations.

As Rand Show visitors have come to anticipate, there’ll be thunderous capability displays in the Main Arena over the Easter weekend (14-17 April 2017), with enough big bangs, simulated battles and roaring engines to thrill the whole family.

The four arms of the SANDF are also coming together once again to put on a massive joint exhibition of military equipment covering over 10 000 sqm, complete with a massive lookout bridge from which to view the exhibition from on high, plus the Rooivalk and Oryx, a dive tank, and so much more.

Here is an equipment list of what visitors can see at this impressive display.
