10 SAI was established on January 1, 1994, at Mafikeng, Northwest Province as a result of the amalgamation of Bophuthatswana Defence Force into the SANDF.
SANDF's Motorised Infantry[edit | edit source]
SANDF's Motorised Infantry is transported mostly by Samil trucks, Mamba APC's or other un-protected motor vehicles. Samil 20,50 and 100 trucks transport soldiers, towing guns, and carrying equipment and supplies. Samil trucks are all-wheel drive, in order to have vehicles that function reliably in extremes of weather and terrain. Motorised infantry have an advantage in mobility allowing them to move to critical sectors of the battlefield faster, allowing better response to enemy movements, as well as the ability to outmaneuver the enemy.
