Default Malaysian Navy

Good site for updates to RMN. I particulary like the response to the pirate problems off Somalia. A nice low tech response by converting a container ship.

Of interest will also be the the last use of a LCG (L) in combat missions during the first malayan emergency. A great set of photos here.

EEZ stations or the 21st Century's stone frigates.

Maybe there's another thread I missed ? but don't see anything since this previous of 2010.

No headlines -but just read old item from end of February this year on a new Smart General Patrol vessel (NGPV) "KD Perak"
replacing the one year older "KD Pahang"at the Sepanggar Royal Malaysian Naval base ,which I think is in Borneo (correct me if I'm wrong)

The vessel with a crew of 68 will guard the waters off Sabah,The Federal Territory of Labuan and Sarawak,

The older "Pahang", built in Germany, has returned to the RMN Regional Headquarters.

Malaysia currently has six NGPVs in service.

(Sarawak reminds me of another story which I'll save for my
"The Rest of the News" on "Shore Leave").

As Prime Minister, Mahathir Mohamad had "20-20 Vision" - his slogan for his aim to make Malaysia a Developed Country by 2020. They're not quite there yet, but they are very, very far from being "Third World".

Malaysian Warship KD Jebat - Fire
Marhalim Abas June 2, 2017 Malaysia -RMN

SHAH ALAM: The Lekiu-class guided missile frigate KD Jebat (29) caught fire as she berthed at the Lumut naval base this morning (May 02, 2017). The fire was detected at 2.30am and it was fully extinguished at 5 am. According to the RMN, early indications showed that the fire started during the preparation of food for sahur. The fire was apparently limited to the officerís mess only

Following the fire it is likely the Jebat will undergo refit at the adjacent Boustead Naval Shipyard. BNS has the long term maintenance contract for the Lekiu-class frigates, KD Lekiu and Jebat. Perhaps this time around, the navy will decide to award the contract to upgrade the shipís combat management system.

An investigation to determine the cause of the fire will be conducted, says the RMN in its official release. The fire, though small, will continue Jebatís reputation as an unlucky ship. As you may remember, Jebat was slightly damaged following a collision with a merchantís vessel off Port Klang, on Jan. 15, 2014.
