Malaysian Army to buy 44 GK-M1 Rapid Rover 4×4 vehicles
Apr 20, 2016




According to the Malaysian company Weststar Defence there are orders from the Royal Malaysian Navy and Royal Malaysian Air Force for 44 GK-M1 Rapid Rover 4×4 vehicle each following an official signing ceremony on 19 May at Defense Services Asia. That reported shephardmedia.com.

A spokesperson from Weststar told Shephard that they expect orders for another 44 from each service. He added that the Army already has the Vamtac from URO fitted with the Igla.

The vehicles are fitted with the Starstreak very short-range air defence (VSHORAD) missile on a Lightweight Multiple Launcher (LML) system from Thales and will provide a mobile air defence capability to the service. It is not clear how many Starstreaks and LMLs will be bought.

Thales and Weststar signed a partnering arrangement in April 2014 for the latter to distribute Ground-Based Air Defence systems in Malaysia. Starstreak will replace the existing Starburst VSHORADsystem, which was retired in 2013.

Starstreak was tested for the first time in Malaysia in March. Despite the GK-M1 Rapid Rover being displayed at the DSA 2014 exhibition, the missile has yet to be tested on the vehicle. Further Starstreak tests are due in October.

It could suggest that firing Starstreak from an LML from the back of a Toyota Hilux is not providing as much stability as required. However, a spokesperson from Weststar insisted that first deliveries are expected this year.

Weststar’s subsidiary, Global Komited, which provides the vehicles said that GK-M1 Rapid Rover and the other vehicles on the stand at DSA – the GK-M1 Special Operations Vehicle (SOV) and the GK-M1 Fit For Radio (FFR) vehicles – were all locally built to the Toyota Hilux chassis design. However, they look similar to the versions built by Thailand, which bought Starstreak last year.


The spokesperson revealed that three Starstreak missile launchers had been purchased by Weststar and this follows the first testing of Starstreak on 28 March.

He added that further Starstreak systems would be purchased in batches dependent on the completion of the vehicle tests.

The GK-M1 has a gross vehicle weight of 3,300kg and can carry a 500kg payload. It is 5.7m long and 1.8mwide with a height of 2m.

Meanwhile, while the new SOV variant has the same GVW and width it is shorter at 5m long but it is fitted with a rooftop 360 degree ring mount and front swing for a machine gun. It can carry a slightly larger payload up to 760kg.

The FFR is slightly shorter again at 4.7m long, but has a built in radio racking system for all military specification and three antenna brackets (for HF, VHF and UHF) space for a lean-to tent and a three layer hard roof panel and side ladder.

Air Platforms
DSA 2016: Finmeccanica and Weststar to offer AW159 to Malaysian navy
Jon Grevatt, Kuala Lumpur - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
20 April 2016
Global Komited - a subsidiary of Malaysian company Weststar Defence Industries - signed a teaming agreement with Finmeccanica on 20 April to jointly distribute the AgustaWestland AW159 maritime and utility aircraft in Malaysia.

The memorandum of understanding (MoU), signed at the Defence Services Asia (DSA) 2016 exhibition in Kuala Lumpur, covers joint promotion and distribution as well as potential maintenance, repair, and overhaul services if the platform is selected by the Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN) to meet its requirement for six anti-submarine warfare (ASW) helicopters.


In addition, the arrangement includes a plan to support Global Komited in a programme to upgrade the RMN's six AgustaWestland Super Lynx 300 maritime patrol helicopters, which operate from the service's Lekiu-class guided-missile frigates. The helicopters have been in service since 2003 after the Anglo-Italian company received an order from the RMN in 1999.

The Finmeccanica-Global Komited MoU was witnessed by UK defence procurement minister Philip Dunne and Malaysian defence minister Hishammuddin Hussein. After the signing of the accord, Dunne told IHS Jane's that it signified the closer defence industrial ties that were being forged by the two countries.

"This is all part of bringing Malaysia industry and UK industry together to serve the Malaysian Armed Forces," he said. "There are a number of examples where we will be able to help improve availability of platforms in service here."

"Weststar is one of the up-and-coming defence contractors here in Malaysia and AgustaWestland is one of the well-established platform providers in the UK. Weststar is looking to provide more services to air forces and navies in the region and this is a good example of how industries of both countries can work together to meet the needs of an armed forces."

DSA 2016: Airod partners with UK, Norwegian firms for RMAF upgrades

Jon Grevatt, Kuala Lumpur - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
20 April 2016

Malaysian aerospace firm Airod has signed agreements with foreign partners to support BAE Systems' Hawk aircraft and Sikorsky S-61A-4 'Nuri' helicopters in service with the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF).

Agreements to facilitate the two programmes, which remain reliant on contracts from Malaysia's Ministry of Defence, were signed on 20 April at the Defence Services Asia (DSA) 2016 exhibition in Kuala Lumpur.

The programme to upgrade the Hawks is centred on the aircraft's avionics and is expected to take three years to complete. Under the proposed programme, BAE Systems will undertake the design, manufacture, and certification of the avionics systems, while Airod will be responsible for the integration of the systems onto the aircraft.

Renk France is offering a powerpack upgrade for the Malaysian Army’s PT-91 main battle tank
Apr 21, 2016






Renk France is offering a powerpack upgrade for the Malaysian Army’s PT-91 main battle tank at the Defence Services Asia exhibition.

The vehicle transmission manufacturing company is displaying its Powerpack 350S that uses ESM350 automatic transmission, and is powered by the Scania D1I6 engine specially made to fit together to improve the performance of T-72, T-90, M-84 and PT-91 tanks.

A spokesperson said that it was a brand new design that can fit into the PT-91 chassis without any modifications needed. The Scania engine can offer 883kW.

He said that the 350S can offer a top speed of 70 km/h, which is more than the 60 km/h achieved by the existing Wola engine from Poland. It can also achieve 33 km/h in reverse, a great deal more than the 4km/h that the PT-91 can achieve now.

A key feature is that the upgrade will also install a steering wheel with automatic gears that is managed in the transmission system. This makes it much easier to drive versus the old manual control and cheaper to train drivers.

The system can also achieve higher acceleration without break damage and it can reach 1,090rpm, which is slightly higher than the 1,000rpm of the existing engine. It has fully hydraulic coupling, one filtration system, a two-stage cooling process instead of just one – important for hot Asian climates – and has external sensors instead of having them all inside allowing for easy access and changes.

The upgrade will also allow the tank to turn within its own length pivoting on both tracks, something that it cannot do at the moment as it can only pivot one track. This means the turning circle is wider and is more restrictive in areas where space for movement is limited, like urban areas.

Another key feature is that the entire powerpack can be removed from the tank in about 45 minutes to one hour – a process that usually takes days – allowing for faster repair and overhaul, or for the installation of a replacement.

Furthermore, the spokesperson commented that whilst the powerpack design is new most of the engine components from Scania are readily available on the commercial market meaning that it is cheaper and easier to maintain.

Renk is in discussions with the Malaysian Army about securing an engine upgrade programme to improve the mobility capabilities of the PT-91. It has 48 tanks in its inventory.

Malaysia to be a potential customer for BrahMos missiles

Malaysia may become a potential customer for BrahMos cruise missiles, according to the Director General of Russian-Indian joint venture (JV) BrahMos Aerospace, Sudhir Kumar Mishra. "There are a lot of potential buyers in the (Asia Pacific) region. Indian Defense Minister, Manohar Parrikar has revealed intention to back the export of national weapons. I would say, that Malaysia is a potential customer for BrahMos missiles," Mishra said. "The final decision to supply BrahMos missiles to a third party depends on Russian and Indian governmental bodies responsible for it," the company`s director said. He did not mention the types of BrahMos cruise missiles, which may be supplied to Malaysia in prospect.

Le CAESAR à portée de contrat en Malaisie?

Actualités Nathan Gain 28 avril, 2016



Danemark, Norvège, Inde, et maintenant la Malaisie : de possibles contrats à l’export se précisent pour le canon automoteur CAESAR de Nexter. Dernier succès en date : la signature le mercredi 20 avril 2016, à l’occasion du salon DSA tenu la semaine dernière à Kuala Lumpur, d’une lettre d’intention entre le systémier français et l’industriel malaisien Advanced Defence Systems (ADS). Selon les termes de cette proposition, les deux partenaires entendent produire conjointement 20 systèmes CAESAR pour l’armée malaisienne. Celle-ci souffre en effet d’un vide capacitaire en matière d’appui-feu.


Le CAESAR de Nexter à Kuala Lumpur pour le salon DSA 2016 (Crédit photo: FOB)


Selon les termes de cette LoI, Nexter fournira les technologies et le savoir-faire nécessaires pour permettre à ADS d’assembler et d’assurer localement la maintenance des CAESAR. Tant la ligne d’assemblage que l’atelier de maintenance seront situés à Gemas, au sud-est de Kuala Lumpur.

Les militaires malaisiens sont à la recherche d’une artillerie propulsée depuis près de 20 ans, une démarche constamment reportée à cause des restrictions budgétaires. Si de nombreux acteurs industriels, tels que BAE Systems et son Archer, Samsung Techwin et le K9 Thunder, et Rheinmetall avec le PzH2000, ont d’emblée montré un intérêt, seuls deux ont par la suite réellement progressé dans leurs prospections. Hormis Nexter et l’offre annoncée ce mardi, les États-Unis proposaient, en novembre 2015, de fournir 30 M109 Paladin d’occasion à travers le programme « Excess Defense Articles ».

La technologie du CAESAR n’a cessé d’évoluer depuis sa première présentation en Malaisie en 1999 (sous l’ère GIAT Industries). Nexter Systems est donc revenu en février 2015 pour présenter aux militaires malaisiens un CAESAR dont les déploiements opérationnels successifs en ont fait un système mature.

Outre l’expérience acquise en OPEX, le duo Nexter-ADS peut s’appuyer sur l’architecture simplifiée mais robuste, le poids restreint et la haute mobilité du CAESAR. Autant d’avantages qui en font une plateforme plus abordable, car moins gourmande en carburant et présentant une charge logistique moindre. Contrairement aux plateformes chenillées, le CAESAR est en mesure de couvrir de grandes distances, sans souffrir de l’infrastructure routière « aléatoire » du continent asiatique. Imaginez les 46 tonnes d’un K9 Thunder coréen sur un pont étroit de la jungle malaisienne, ou sur une route escarpée du mont Kinabalu… Enfin, le CAESAR est aisément aérotransportable par C-130 et A400M, deux plateformes dont dispose l’armée de l’air malaisienne.

Raytheon Anschütz upgrades Malaysian hydrography ship with Synapsis IBC

Dzirhan Mahadzir, Kuala Lumpur - IHS Jane's International Defence Review
29 April 2016

A bridge modernisation effort by Raytheon Anschütz to install its Synapsis Intelligent Bridge Control (IBC) suite aboard the Royal Malaysian Navy's (RMN's) hydrographic survey ship KD Perantau is in progress.

New bridge equipment supplied by Raytheon Anschütz also include a Standard 22 Gyro Compass and repeaters, Reflecta Magnetic Compass, GDA 101 Echo Sounder, Synapsis Radar, Synapsis ECDIS, Synapsis Conning, BNWAS Watch Alarm system and a NP 5000 autopilot.

Additional systems supplied by other manufacturers include a Skipper EML 224 speed log and a Skipper DL 1 Doppler log, a Saab R5 AIS, and a Saab R5 differential GPS.

Raytheon Anschütz area sales manager, Uwe Berendes, told IHS Jane's that he is hopeful that the service would consider modernising additional RMN ships with the Synapsis IBC following the completion of integration work on Perantau in May, with the ship expected to be delivered to the RMN in June.

Eurofighter Typhoon and Dassault Rafale shortlisted for Malaysian Air Force
May 13, 2016





Malaysia is all set to issue a request for information to two aircraft manufacturers, including Eurofighter Typhoon and Dassault Rafale. that reported www.malaysiandefence.com.

Under the RMAF’s Multi-Role Combat Aircraft (MRCA) program, the replacement of the MiG-29Ns with 18 new fighters had emerged as the core requirement. An initial Request for Proposals (RFP) was issued in March 2011 calling for 18 new fighters, plus an option for a further 18-unit batch. The Boeing F/A‑18E/F Super Hornet, Dassault Rafale, Eurofighter Typhoon, and Saab JAS 39 Gripen were all offered up as potential contenders to fill the RMAF requirement, with a further buy of Su-30MKMs ruled out by the service.

But as time passed, the Malaysian government began to get cold feet about such an expensive procurement, and reports coming out of Kuala Lumpur in April 2014 indicated a gathering consensus that a lease – or even a lease-to-buy – would be preferential to an outright purchase.

The decision on the Multi-Role Combat Aircraft (MRCA) could be made soon, though funding remained the biggest issue on the table. As both UK and France offers funding options under a government-to-government deal the tricky issue could be resolved.

Malaysia to receive third A400M transport aircraft by mid-month
Jun 3, 2016201

The Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) is set to receive its third Airbus A400M aircraft by mid-month.

RMAF Chief, General Tan Sri Roslan Saad said the aircraft would utiltise the state of the art technology.

“The aircraft (A400M) is capable of fulfilling the transportation needs of the RMAF to strengthen the country’s air defence system.

The A400M is an all-new military airlifter designed to meet the needs of the world’s Armed Forces in the 21st Century. Thanks to its advanced technologies, it is able to fly higher, faster and further, while retaining high manoeuvrability, excellent low speed handling , and the abilty to use short and unpaved runways.

It combines both tactical and strategic/logistic missions. With its cargo hold specifically designed to carry the outsize equipment needed today for both military and humanitarian disaster relief missions, it can bring this material quickly and directly to where it is most needed.

Conceived to be highly reliable, dependable, and survivable, the multipurpose A400M can do more with less, implying smaller fleets and less investment from the operator. The A400M is the most cost efficient and versatile airlifter ever conceived and absolutely unique in its capabilities.

Third A400M Arrived in Subang


15 Juni 2016


M54-03 prepared to landing at Subang airport. (photo : Malaysian Defence)


SHAH ALAM: RMAF’s third A400M air-lifter arrived at the Subang airbase last Monday – four days after it was officially delivered to the service. The A400M – tail number M54-03 – flew some 9,100 km to get to Subang from the Airbus D&S A400M Final Assembly Line in Seville, Spain.

The ferry flight from Seville, took two days with one stop-over at the Al Bateen executive airport in Abu Dhabi. Both the previous deliveries, took the same route and stop-overs.

Unlike the arrival of 02 late last year, 03’s arrival today was rather subdued. There was no fly past over Subang and there was no escorts.

An official welcoming ceremony for the aircraft is only expected after Ramadan. It will be a good excuse to hold a Raya open house at 22nd Squadron spanking new hangar.

The prompt arrival of the RMAF third aircraft must be a welcome relief to Airbus D&S which have come under pressure due to delivery delay caused by engine and air-frame issues.

Mean-while, a PDRM Super King Air 350 fitted with the ISR fit also made a landing at the runway after what appears to be a test flight following maintenance.

Report: Defence budget cuts to slowdown Malaysian procurement programmes


7 June 2016
Malaysia's defence procurement will slow down owing to budget cuts in defence sector, says a report by Strategic Defence Intelligence (SDI).

Titled "Future of the Malaysian Defense Industry - Market Attractiveness, Competitive Landscape and Forecasts to 2021" the report States that the Malaysian government has allocated $4.5bn for defence in 2016, a 2.6% decrease compared to last year. The defence budget has witnessed a negative compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 0.33% over the last five years.


An average of 33.9% of the total defence budget has been allocated to the army from 2012 to 2016, whereas the average allocation over the next five years is estimated to be 33.5%. Revenue expenditure is to be centred on new recruitment, training and development programmes for troops.

Capital expenditure allocation is anticipated to increase to an average of 20.8% from 2017 to the 2021, compared to an average of 20.6% during the last five years.

The nation's defence spending is primarily driven by the procurement of corvettes, multi-role aircraft and armoured vehicles. The procurement is anticipated to come down in the next two years due to the completion of certain acquisitions in 2016 and 2017.

Despite the slowdown in procurement, Malaysia's defence imports and exports are anticipated to increase in the next five years as a result of the Ministry of Defence's (MoD) modernisation and procurement efforts.

The Royal Malaysian Army expects to receive 8x8 APC vehicles and armoured fighting vehicles as part of the procurement plan.

Le dernier né des drones de Thales, le Fulmar, a déjà été vendu, à la Malaisie (relire notre article ici) pour être mis en oeuvre depuis des patrouilleurs, mais l'UAV n'avait jamais été dévoilé au public. C'est chose aujourd'hui faite avec sa présentation au salon de Farnborough.

Thales le présente comme un drone pour des applications de surveillance tant civil que militaire. Les deux premiers systèmes seront livrés à la fin de l'année à l'agence maritime malaisienne. Le drone peut être mis en œuvre dans un environnement maritime ou terrestre. L'Espagne s'y intéresserait de près également.

DCI lance une co-entreprise en Malaisie pour former des pilotes d'hélicoptères





Lors du salon aérien de Farnborough, DCI a enregistré un nouveau succès dans le domaine de la formation de pilotes d'hélicoptères.

Le vice-ministre malaisien de la Défense, la société Major Flagship Sdn Bhd et Défense Conseil International (DCI) ont conclu un accord portant sur la création et l’exploitation d’un Centre de formation de pilotes et mécaniciens d’hélicoptère en Malaisie.

DCI (49% du capital) et Major Flagship (51% du capital) vont créer une co-entreprise (JV) baptisée Helang Training. Les pouvoirs seront, en revanche, répartis sur la base du 50/50, Jean-Michel Palagos (DCI) et Datuk Ahmad Zaki Zahid (Major Flagship Sdn Bhd)) étant les deux co-chairman de la JV.

Helang Training va prochainement faire l'acquisition d'hélicoptères. Les formateurs seront en grande partie fournis par DCI.

Actuellement, la Malaisie forme 6 pilotes d'hélicoptères par an, alors que les besoins sont estimés à 36.

This is a major step forward for both parties and together we are confident that it will prove a major success.”

Helang Training Sdn Bhd is committed to providing excellence in training among other values such as safety and giving access to highest training standards matching with Customers operating environment from modern training facilities in Malaysia and a mixed fleet of single and twin engines helicopters.

“We listened to our future customers and saw an increased demand for Helicopter training in the region especially in providing initial pilot training and to complement with specific mission training for Military and Governmental customers. DCI’s vast experience in this specific field associated to our vision and knowledge in Customer’s requirements will enhance helicopters operations and mission readiness in the region,” said Datuk Ahmad Zaki Zahid.


DCI’s mission is to transfer French military know-how to the armed forces of nations friendly with France.

The DCI group has 986 employees and reported sales of EUR227.5 million in 2015, which represents 35% growth over the past five years. 2015 saw a substantial increase in orders, up more than 30% from 2014, to reach EUR233.3 million. This boosted the order book of DCI and its wholly-owned subsidiary DCI-SA to the equivalent of 1.6 years’ sales.

In between 1995 to 2007 366 R-73E (AA-11) heat seeking missiles were exported to Malaysia. The R-73 is an infrared-guided (heat-seeking) missile with a sensitive, cryogenic cooled seeker with a substantial "off-boresight" capability: the seeker can "see" targets up to 40° off the missile's centerline. It can be targeted by a helmet-mounted sight (HMS) allowing pilots to designate targets by looking at them. Minimum engagement range is about 300 meters, with maximum aerodynamic range of nearly 30 km (19 mi) at altitude.

The SURA HMS intended to instantly aim controlled weapons (guided missiles, revolving canon units) and surveillance systems at visually visible targets by turning pilot's head, without altering the aircraft course.





The Malaysian deployment of the R-73E and the MiG-29N provided a combination of missile capability and airframe manoeuvrability which would allow a competent pilot to get earlier firing opportunities, higher missile kill rates and better survivability against contemporary jet fighters.

It is interesting to notes that off-boresight weapon system are not new within the RMAF arsenal. The MiG-29N which enter service in 1995 have been using this system probably as early as 1996.
