Would like to stress that in the past there were plenty of intentions and plans claimed by the malaysian authority to be in the mist of discussion and negotiation. Disappointingly, it seems that there are no concluded procurement. i.e. Rookivalk Attack Helicopter, Ceasar Arty System, F-18 upgrade etc.Hope that the naval procurement will eventually succeed. The 6 Stealth frigates from singapore seems to be intimidating enough, the congested Strait of malacca and singapore will only escalate the difficulty in making quick detection and identification.kaybee said:Recent events indicate otherwise. News on planned purchase of LPD/LSD is out and this was announce by MAF Chief himself. Two more frigates are currently under intense negotiation and expect to have the contract sign by next year. Looks like the Navy benefits a lot by having an Admiral at the MAF helm.
