They have been supplying terrorists that have been blowing up Bhuddists in Thailand for years. Now they have empowered religious police to arrest or just beat-up couples that are holding hands or kissing in public (anywhere they can be seen doing it).

Not very nice people. I wonder what they are planning to do with thier armor?

Oh really? So were trying to blow up Buddhist and take over the southern Provinces. Rather a bias accusation. Malaysia has offered to mediate the peace talks between the Thai Gov and the Insurgency, which if peace prevails would benefit us greatly other then having a Civil war in Thailand.

That would be 7th Bde? Hmm ... I would rather they be assigned to 4th Bde in Kuantan.

Yes, like weasel said, welcome to the the thread. I think you should pay Malaysia a visit. As a tourist, of course, and not some SOF operative sent to "take out" the bad guys. Your previous posts make interesting reading.

Your experience in Malaysia would probably be similar to what captured North Korean agents felt after seeing South Korean supermarkets, shopping malls and homes. In KL, Bintang Walk and the Beach Club might interest you.

BTW, this year is Visit Malaysia Year 2007. So beware, there will be lots of events organised by the thought police to brainwash unsuspecting foreigners.

Not that I know of. But being the first unit of its type it would be a test-bed.

At one point, MMC Defence was supposed to some assembly(?) work at their plant in Nilai. Anyone have any updates?

That would turn the 4th into a brigade of 3 maneuver units made up of 1 tank and 2 mechanized infantry battalions. Tranfer the remaining mech battalion into the 1st. Mechanized 1 infantry battalion from the 1st and raise another tank battalion for this brigade. A "fast" method to have 2 mech brigades.

I dont want to be a party pooper, Its great that Malaysia is getting MBT's to strengthen our Land forces. But it seems were sacrificing tank "ability" for tank "reliablity". ?_?
