Teluk Sepanggar Naval Base To Get Advanced Air Defence System - Hishammuddin

KOTA KINABALU, Jan 25 (Bernama) -- The Royal Malaysian Navy (TLDM) base in Teluk Sepanggar here will be equipped with an advanced air defence system to combat future threats and challenges.

Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said the move was in line with rapid technological developments and the needs of TLDM to handle the current scenario in South China Sea and eastern Sabah waters.

"In this context, it is aimed at ensuring our base is safe. Whatever the defence system, it will be determined later," he told reporters after visiting and inspecting the development of the Kota Kinabalu TLDM base in Teluk Sepanggar here, today.

He said the plan was one of the efforts to upgrade the base comprehensively against any threats, especially in the waters of the state.

However, he said any upgrade and additional national defence assets would depend on the country's economic capability, political situation and potential threats.

Apart from that, Hishammuddin said the Scorpene submarine refit infrastructure under construction at the base was 12 per cent completed and according to schedule.

He said the infrastructure, encompassing the construction of three main workshops for the maintenance of submarine equipment and storage, was expected to reduce the cost of maintenance of the country's two submarines, KD Tunku Abdul Rahman and KD Tun Razak.

"There will be periodic maintenance to ensure the submarines operate to the maximum duration of 35 years, which will be carried out by the government with the cooperation of Boustead DCNS Naval Corporation Sdn Bhd," he said.

The Kota Kinabalu TLDM base, built in 2001 comprises the Naval Region II headquarters and the submarine base headquarters and enjoys close cooperation with Brunei and the Philippines through annual exercises.

The base also serves a port of call for for several foreign ships from the United States, Australia, Brunei, France, Japan, Singapore and India.

Hishamuddin today concluded his three-day working visit to Sabah to look into the preparedness of security forces especially in the Eastern Sabah Security Zone (ESSZone).

F/A-18 Super Hornet : Boeing fait le forcing en Malaisie


Publié le 13/02/2015 à 10h26, par Yann Cochennec


Le F/A-18F Super Hornet de Boeing. © Boeing


La décision de l'Egypte d'acquérir 24 Dassault Rafale est un joli succès pour l'avion de combat français et la "Rafale Team". Pour autant pas question de relâcher la pression sur d'autres pays qui ont exprimé des besoins. Comme la Malaisie, par exemple. D'autant que Boeing fait le forcing pour y caser son F/A-18E/F "Super Hornet". La Malaisie a un besoin pour 18 avions de combat destinés à remplacer ses Mig-29.

Howard M. Berry, directeur des ventes internationales du F/A-18E/F chez Boeing Defence, Space & Security, était à Kuala Lumpur ces jours derniers pour une "tournée des popotes". Et d'en profiter pour dévoiler ses batteries. "Aucun avion de combat en compétition n'est en mesure d'offrir un prix aussi abordable que le Super Hornet", a-t-il asséné.

Et de poursuivre : "Nous discutons et travaillons avec le gouvernement malais. Nous pouvons faire plein de choses sur le plan financier et répondree à tout obstacle financier qu'il pourrait rencontrer sur le court terme". Comme le soulignait, le président de Dassault Aviation, Eric Trappier, il y a deux ans, "Cela va bagarrer dur. C'est un marché qui sera disputé".

U.S. Marines demonstrate capabilities to Malaysian armed forces




SEPANGGAR, SABAH, Malaysia -- Members of the Malaysian armed forces, alongside Malaysian and U.S. government officials, observed a theater security cooperation event with the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit here Feb. 27.

The amphibious air-ground demonstration provided an opportunity for the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps and MAF to build relationships and pave the way for future exercises in Malaysia.

“I think with more and more cooperation and military dialogue, it will be good because it is something very positive,” said Datuk Teo Chee Kang, Minister of Special Tasks in the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP). “It will make for a better regional security. It is our pleasure and our honor and we appreciate it.”

The event included a live-fire platoon vertical assault at Kota Belund Range that highlighted the 31st MEU’s ground combat element. Marines from Company G, Battalion Landing Team 2nd Battalion, 4th Marines, 31st MEU, performed fire-and-maneuver tactics with small arms and medium machine guns and had support from 60 mm mortars.

The demonstration also highlighted the 31st MEU’s aviation combat element, Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 262 (Reinforced). An MV-22B Osprey dropped off Marines in their designated landing zone as two UH-1Y “Huey” helicopters demonstrated live fire and close air support using GAU-17/A Gatling gun, GAU-21 .50-caliber machine gun and 70 mm rocket fire.

“This has been the highlight of our patrol,” said U.S. Marine Corps Col. Romin Dasmalchi, 31st MEU commanding officer. “We look forward to any opportunity to do a bilateral engagement and to train with our partners in the region. This is really an honor for us to be able to do this, and I look forward to the next opportunity.”

After the live fire event, the group of Malaysian military and civilian officials loaded onto an MV-22B Osprey and flew to the USS Bonhomme Richard (LHD 6) operating at sea for a quick tour of the ship.

“We are very grateful to have partners in the region who allow us to visit beautiful places like Sabah and we are grateful for our military partners visiting us,” said Capt. Heidi Agle, commodore, Amphibious Squadron 11, as she addressed the crowd of Malaysian visitors aboard the ship.

Since 1951, the United States and Malaysia have shared diplomatic relations. This exercise demonstrated the continued commitment to the Marine Forces Pacific-MAF 2015 security cooperation program and the increased engagements between III Marine Expeditionary Force and the MAF.

LIMA: Malaysian firm proposes MiG-29 upgrade


A unit of Malaysian maintenance, repair and overhaul firm Airod has proposed an upgrade programme for Malaysia’s fleet of 10 RAC MiG-29 aircraft.

The upgrade, which an industry source says is being considered by the air force, would see the type upgraded to what it refers to as the “MiG-29NM” standard.

It is not clear how receptive Kuala Lumpur will be to the proposal. For several years major international fighter makers have vied for the Multi-Role Combat Aircraft (MRCA) requirement, which will lead to the MiG-29s being replaced with 18 newer types. Still, the government has yet to issue a request for proposals for MRCA, and funding remains a challenge.

The aircraft proposed by Airod's Aerospace Technology Systems Corporation, in conjunction with Malaysia's Sukhoi Technical Centre, would receive a new high-resolution, fire-control radar; improved cockpit ergonomics; and better avionics, while the type’s airframe life would be extended to 6,000h from the current 4,000h.

The most dramatic element is a conformal fuel tank, which would be installed along the aircraft’s dorsal spine aft of the cockpit. This would increase the type’s operational range by 30%.



In addition, the aircraft would have greater commonality with Malaysia’s fleet of Su-30MKMs. The work would be done in Malaysia under licence from RAC MiG.

For the first time in years, no MiG-29s appeared at this year's LIMA show. Industry sources say serviceability of the type, which is to be retired this year, is very low, and the air force is reluctant to use them for non-essential duties.

MBDA place le VL Mica en Malaisie

Tir d'un missile VL Mica © MBDA


Le missilier européen a été retenu par la Marine malaisienne (Royal Malaysian Navy-RMN) pour fournir le missile VL Mica afin d'assurer l'autodéfense des futurs corvettes. Missiles tout temps, le VL Mica assurera une couverture à 360° des bâtiments de la RMN à une distance supérieure à 20 km. Les futurs corvettes ont été commandés à DCNS et sont basées sur la famille Gowind. Pour leur armements, la RMN va également sélectionner un missile anti-navire. Malheureusement l'Exocet de MBDA aurait été écarté au profit du Naval Strike Missile (NMS) de Kongsberg. Reste que les prospects sont multiples dans la région pour MBDA. Ce dernier propose son Anti Navire Léger (ANL), rebaptisé Sea Venom, dans le cadre du remplacement du missile Sea Skua, mis en œuvre depuis les hélicoptères Super Lynx de la RMN. Ensuite, MBDA propose à la Malaisie son missile CAMM de défense aérienne pour équiper les deux frégates de la classe Leiku.

Thales Delivers AMASCOS Mission Systems To RMAF




LANGKAWI, March 18 (Bernama) -- Thales has delivered the first of two further AMASCOS mission systems to the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF).

In a statement today, Thales said the AMASCOS was to support the conversion of four RMAF's Beech 200 aircraft to a highly-capable maritime surveillance platform, due to enter service next year.

It said the AMASCOS delivered an effective maritime surveillance, airborne maritime patrol and ground surveillance capability.

"Its modular and flexible design can accommodate a number of high-definition sensors (optical, radar, acoustic, electronic support measures) and integrate the data into a comprehensive yet easy to operate maritime situational awareness picture. Users are able to focus on the task in hand and remain one step ahead of the actions of those under their surveillance," Thales said.

 Malaysia Offered Similar Financial Package As Egypt For Rafale Procurement


Citation :
LANGKAWI, March 18 (Bernama)-- French aircraft manufacturer, Dassault Aviation, says Malaysia is being offered a financial package similar to that given to Egypt, for procurement of its Rafale jet fighter.

Dassault Chief Executive Officer Eric Tappier said the package entails a ten-year repayment loan from a French commercial bank and guaranteed by the government of France.

Cairo recently acquired 24 Rafale combat aircraft and a multi-mission frigate and associated equipment from Dassault Aviation worth 5.3 billion euros.

"We are committed and looking forward to having a long term business deal here in Malaysia as we have the best fighter aircraft which can cover multirole missions," he said during a breakfast session with the media here Wednesday.

He said Dassault had already tied-up with a few local companies, namely, Zetro Aerospace, CTRM and Airod as part of a long-term plan to expand its business in the aerospace industry in Malaysia.

He said the company is also eyeing other local companies that have potential for collaboration, with the transfer of know-how and technology to Malaysia, in some aspects of the process to build aircraft.

"We are also looking at different types of industrial packages to offer to Malaysia, like the final assembly line of aircraft, production of some parts, development, maintenance and support which we see local industries as having the capability, if they collaborate with us," he added.

On the Malaysian Aerospace Industry Blueprint 2015-2030 launched yesterday, he said it was apt for fuelling the industry's development.

The blueprint was launched by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak in conjunction with the ongoing Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition (Lima 2015).

Tappier said Dassault sees the present as a good opportunity to collaborate with more Malaysian companies as it is not merely focused on selling aircraft.

The Rafale is making its third appearance at the LIMA since 2011 and is the only company participating in an aerial demonstration this time.

"We believe we can succeed in Malaysia. We have a good aircraft to offer. and as far as I am concerned, good government-to-government relations as well," he added. -- BERNAMA

Army gets first batch of Nuris



LANGKAWI: It was a historic moment for the Malaysian Army when it received the Sikorsky S61A-4 Nuri helicopters from the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF).

The RMAF has given 12 of its 38 Nuri helicopters to the Malaysian Army, as the former has been replacing the Nuri with 12 French-made EC725 Cougar helicopters since December 2012.

In a statement by the Malaysian Army, it stated that the Nuri helicopters, which started its service in the RMAF from 1967, were involved in troop deployment and medical evacuation, as well as search and rescue operations.

The 48-year-old choppers which recorded an average of just 14,000 flight hours compared to other countries which have used it over 60,000 flight hours, are still able to serve for another 15 years.

In a simple ceremony yesterday, the RMAF handed the first two Nuri helicopters to the Malaysian Army on the tarmac outside the Mahsuri International Exhibition Centre here, in conjunction with the Langkawi Inter­national Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition 2015.

The handover was completed by RMAF chief Jeneral Datuk Seri Roslan Saad and Malaysian Army chief Jeneral Tan Sri Raja Mohamed Affandi Raja Mohamed Noor, and was witnessed by Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein and Armed Forces chief Jeneral Tan Sri Zulkifeli Mohd Zain.

The handover of Nuri helicopters will be done in phases, where the first four helicopters will be used by the Malaysian Army for pilot training purposes.

Jen Raja Mohamed Affandi said the helicopters would be based in Butterworth, Penang, and the army was considering placing them in Kuantan, Pahang, due to the facilities there.

“We are in the process of upgrading the analogue cockpit to the glass cockpit for better operations and to increase the ability of the helicopters,” he said.

For Hishammuddin, it was a memorable moment as it was his late father, the former prime minister Tun Hussein Onn, who decided to purchase the Nuri choppers back then.

“The handing over of these 12 Nuris are the way forward with the cooperation between the RMAF and the Malaysian Army, as well as the procurement of EC725 Cougar helicopters,” he said yesterday.

AIM-120C7 AMRAAM Missiles

Citation :
WASHINGTON, May 5, 2015 - The State Department has made a determination approving a possible Foreign Military Sale to Malaysia for AIM-120C7 AMRAAM Missiles and associated equipment, parts and logistical support for an estimated cost of $21 million. The Defense Security Cooperation Agency delivered the required certification notifying Congress of this possible sale today.
The Government of Malaysia has requested a possible sale of 10 AIM-120C7 Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missiles (AMRAAM), missile containers, spare and repair parts, support and test equipment, publications and technical documentation, personnel training and training equipment, U.S. Government and contractor engineering, technical and logistics support services, site surveys and studies, and other related elements of logistical and program support.

This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to improve the security of a key partner which has been, and continues to be, an important force for political stability and economic progress in Southeast Asia. This sale will increase Malaysia’s interoperability with the United States, enhancing regularly scheduled joint exercises and training. It also ensures a sustained air-to-air capability for Malaysia’s F/A-18D aircraft.

Malaysian Army sets out plans for more MBTs

Dzirhan Mahadzir, Kuala Lumpur and Christopher F Foss, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly

05 May 2015


Malaysia could be in the market for more PT-91 MBTs from Poland. Source: CF Foss  



The Malaysian Army is seeking an additional regiment of main battle tanks (MBTs) along with self-propelled artillery, according to army Chief General Raja Mohamed Affandi Raja Mohamed Noor.

In a written reply to IHS Jane's to questions about the army's development plans, Gen Raja Affandi said the army needed an additional tank regiment to be equipped with either an upgraded version of the PT-91M MBT that is in service or an MBT with similar capabilities.

"The requirement of this additional regiment is to cater for the establishment of a new armoured brigade, which is still in the planning phase. The army's Planning and Development Branch is currently studying the requirement for this armoured brigade of the future."

IHS Jane's previously reported that the Malaysian Army's armoured brigade plans centre on transforming the 1st Infantry Brigade into an armoured brigade. The army only has one tank regiment, 11th Kor Armor Diraja, with 48 PT-91M MBTs and thus would require an additional tank regiment for the armoured brigade.

Gen Raja Affandi also said the army planned to acquire self-propelled artillery and that tracked and wheeled systems had been evaluated. "We have not made any decisions as yet since each of the platforms has its own unique advantages and disadvantages that will require further study and research to suit our environment and modus operandi," he said. He did not reveal which systems that the army had been looking at.

In regard to the army's Future Soldier System, Gen Raja Affandi said the programme was still under the development and evaluation stage with Malaysian company Sapura and would eventually equip a designated force level within the infantry, although he gave no timeframe.

He also said the army needs "a Very Short Range Air Defence [VSHORAD] system to replace its existing and aging air-defence capability", but that any such procurement would have to be done as part of an overall Malaysian Armed Forces programme to ensure interoperability.

The Malaysian Army operates a mix of Chinese FN-6, Russian 9K38 Igla, and Pakistani Anza Mk II Man-Portable Air Defence Systems (MANPADS) along with MBDA Jernas SAMs and Rheinmetall 35 mm GDF-005 anti-aircraft guns.

Le Rafale sera au menu de la visite de M. Le Drian en Malaisie
Posté dans Asie-Pacifique, Forces aériennes par Laurent Lagneau Le 31-08-2015

La semaine passée, il a beaucoup été question de la visite que doit faire Jean-Yves Le Drian, le ministre de la Défense, à Kuala Lumpur, où, selon la rumeur, on serait trés intéressé par l’achat d’un des deux Bâtiments de projection et de commandement (BPC) Mistral dont la livraison à la Russie a été annulée.

Seulement, la presse malaisienne n’évoque pas une telle acquisition (ce qui ne veut pas dire qu’il n’y ait pas de discussions à son sujet). Car, a priori, elle ne figure pas dans la liste des équipements promis aux forces armées dans le cadre du 11e Plan, lequel fixe les objectifs du pays dans une multitude de domaines (économie, sécurité, environnement, etc…).

Ainsi, le 27 août dernier, le ministre malaisien de la Défense, Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein, a parlé de la modernisation des hélicoptères Sikorsky S61A-4 et du programme des corvettes destinées à la marine alors qu’il était interrogé sur les difficultés économiques que traverse actuellement l’économie malaisienne et donc sur les crédits sur lesquels il pourra compter pour mener bien ces projets.

Parmi ces derniers, un est sur le haut de la pile : celui visant à remplacer les MiG-29 des forces aériennes malaisiennes. Un processus de sélection a été lancé et 5 appareils sont en lice, dont le Rafale de Dassault Aviation, le Su-35 russe, le JAS-39 Gripen de Saab, le F/A-18 Super Hornet de Boeing et l’Eurofighter Typhoon.

Évoquant la visite prochaine de son homologue français, le ministre malaisien a indiqué qu’il était « prévu, entre autres, de discuter de l’acquisition de l’avion de combat multi-rôles Rafale de la société française Dassault ».

« Si elle est dans nos moyens, je voudrais considérer cette acquisition », a-t-il dit. Mais elle ne pourra se faire que « si le paquet financier offert satisfait aux exigences fixées par le ministère des Finances », a prévenu le ministre malaisien. « Nous en avons besoin. Mais en même temps, nous devons être réalistes et savoir si oui ou non nous pouvons nous permettre » une telle acquisition, a-t-il insisté.

Avant d’évoquer le sujet « Rafale », M. Hishammuddin s’était dit confiant sur la capacité à surmonter les mauvaises conditions économiques pour atteindre les objectifs fixés par le 11e Plan en matière de défense. « Je suis convaincu qu’avec une planification minitieuse faite par le ministère et les forces armées, nous serons en mesure de surmonter ces défis », a-t-il avancé.

Boustead receives contract extension for Malaysian frigate work

Ridzwan Rahmat, Singapore - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
08 September 2015




Boustead Naval Shipyard (BNS) has been awarded a MYR43.4 million (USD9.9 million) contract extension by Malaysia's Ministry of Defence (MINDEF) to continue support work on the Royal Malaysian Navy's (RMN's) 23rd Frigate Squadron.

The original MYR70 million contract to provide spare parts, maintenance services, and training was awarded in September 2012. Under the contract extension BNS will continue work for a two-year period up to 9 September 2017, the company announced in a regulatory filing with the Bursa Malaysia stock exchange.

The RMN's 23rd Frigate Squadron consists of the Lekiu-class warships KD Jebat (29) and KD Lekiu (30). Built by Yarrow Shipbuilders and commissioned in November and October 1999 respectively, the 105 m vessels are currently based at Lumut.

Thales to provide Forceshield and Starstreak to Malaysia
Thales announced today at DSEI that it has signed a contract with Global Komited, a company within The Weststar Group, to supply the Malaysian Armed Forces with ForceSHIELD, the Thales integrated Advanced Air Defence system.




n addition to the STARStreak missiles, the system comprises CONTROLMaster 200 radar and weapon coordination systems, RAPIDRanger and RAPIDRover mobile weapon systems and the Next Generation Lightweight Multiple Launcher, as well as associated communications.

The STARStreak missiles and launcher systems are manufactured in Thales’s facility in Belfast and the CONTROLMaster by Thales in France. This significant purchase by the Malaysian Armed Forces will increase jobs in Belfast and develop high value added jobs and skills set in Malaysia through a programme of technology transfer.

The purchase of ForceSHIELD will enable the Malaysian Armed Forces to replace and enhance the previously commissioned Thales STARBurst missile system, which has been in service since the mid 1990’s.

The STARStreak missile utilises the proven principle of ‘high velocity’ to defeat threats with short unmasking times. The three-dart configuration maximises lethality and the highly accurate laser beam riding guidance enables engagement of small signature targets.

Victor Chavez, CEO of Thales UK, said: “I am delighted that another country has decided to buy ForceSHIELD. This latest-generation sensors to effectors solution will give Malaysia a world class, cutting edge capability. Increasing our export sales is a key part of Thales’ growth strategy and today’s news marks another milestone.”

On his behalf, the British Defence Ministre Philip Dunne said: "I am delighted that Westar and Thales have agreed to work together to supply the STARStreak missile system to the Malaysian Armed Forces. This is an excellent example of companies sharing technology to support the ongoing modernisation of the country’s Armed Forces. I very much value our Defence relationship with Malaysia and look forward to working with their government and Armed Forces as part of our enduring Defence cooperation."

Forceshield is part of the “Thales SHIELD” packaged modular solution. It provides air defence on the battlefield or convoys of vehicles in combat areas.

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) -- Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) chief, General Tan Sri Roslan Saad said the second Airbus A400M will be received in early December.

"This is the second of four aircraft bought in December 2005. The first was received on March 9. The A400M is a modern aircraft compared to the DHC-4 Coribou which we already have.

"RMAF pilots can still fly the aircraft despite the modern technology," he told reporters after his induction as fifth member of the Hall of Fame at Armed Forces Defence College (MPAT) here, today.

The A400M has a longer operating range and capable of transporting a higher volume of cargo compared to other aircraft in the RMAF stable.

Other than for defence purposes, it can also perform Medical Evacuation (Medevac) Air to Air Refuelling (AAR), Aerial Delivery (Paratroop & Logistic) and Humanitarian Aid and Disaster Relief (HADR) operations.

Roslan said the remaining two aircraft are expected to arrive in stages in the middle of next year.

Induction into the Hall of Fame is the highest award for MPAT alumni holding the highest office in military service.

The other inductees were Malaysian Armed Forces (ATM) chief, General Tan Sri Zulkifli Mohd Zin, former RMAF chief, General Tan Sri Rodzali Daud, Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) director-general, Admiral Datuk Mohd Amdan Kurish and Army chief, General Tan Sri Raja Mohamed Affandi Raja Mohamed Noor.
