Yes the meko is the NGPV project. made in Germany, assembled in Malaysia for the first 6 (batch 1). It was specified as an OPV, hence the diesel engines and the armament. Can it be compared to the USCG Cutters? If so than it's more suitable for the MMEA, since the RMN should concentrate more on combat capable vessel, no?

Indeed, more powerful diesels or CODAG would allow for 32kn on the Meko100 design. However it would have cost significantly more.

It's called PV with published speed of mere 22knots.and the original plan called for 27 Patrol Vessels..I think neighbouring countries will feel a little bit laidback with that.though they actually know with FFNBW it will transform all (God if only that happen) into serious threat to their own.so it's really get down to diplomacy really.it's the same kind of thing with our FS1500 Kasturi and Lekir that designated as corvette while some country called theirs as frigate

Then you should read very carefully again.because MEKO100=NGPV.

I see what you mean. It is however pretty amazing to see that governments still decide what and when to acquire based mostly on what the neighbor has just bought, instead of basing the decision on what the country needs...
Btw, the Kasturis and Lekiu have SSMs, SAMs, some ASW, and a helo... so for me they are frigates, eventually light frigates, but still FFGs.
They sure are more capable than the Thai Janghiu FFGs (which lack SAMs) or the Indonesian Leanders (ex Dutch).

cheers

Tan Sri Ilyas Din is smoking some pretty strong stuff. They might want to get his urine checked.

The funny part is the one saying that ship captains don't know their geography and that pirates operate elsewhere... let me see... on a Japan/Korea path to the Middle East & Suez, the path is north of Borneo (Malaysian territory...), through Singapore (I doubt pirates operate there ) and then up the Malacca straits into the Indian Ocean. I doubt pirates operate ocean-going ships in the middle of the Indian Ocean... so the dangerous zone is clearly the Malacca straits.
May be the danger comes more from the Indonesian side, still...
