Do you have any interesting stories to share about your time working on the Lekius :]

The main problem [as reported in the press] were integration issues with NAUTIS - was wondering if there were any other problems. Not sure if it's true or not but I heard that during trials in the North Sea the hatch of the Bofors Mk2 was left opened and the gun required intensive maintenance after being drenched in seawater. I'm also curious if there was any RN participation in the trials?

In the pic showing Seawolf being launched is there any particular reason why the steel on the superstructure and the hull appears to be ''wavy'' [if that's the right word to use]?

The pic on the left is Jebat at Sydney for the International Fleet Review and the right both ships are seen alongside the George Washington.

From Navy Recognition sites. The Launching of the First Malaysian Navy LCS Frigate. Based on technical data sheet, it will be using VL MICA on Sylver VLS.

@Sturm, is VL Mica will also be fitted later on to Jebat class ? Replacing sea wolf?

The RMN has not made any mention of what will eventually replace Seawolf but MICA is the most likely contender.
