Regarding the SAAB Gripen, initially it was one of the candidates for Malaysian MRCA (Multi Role Combat Aircraft) program to replace our Mig27 Fulcrum, but it was stated by TUDM that Gripen C/D has been ruled out of it as TUDM has shortlisted only 2 fighters - Eurofighter Typhoon or Dassault Rafale.
The main reasons why it was ruled out are because of its single engine/short range (TUDM needs twin engine fighters since Malaysia has 2 big lands separated by South China Sea) and weapons load. But recently SAAB has announced their new Gripen E that addresses those 2 problems - a better range thanks to the ability to carry more fuel n stronger engine and making it capable to carry more loads.

BUt nothing is set on stone yet as we are still lacking the fund to finalising any deal (the MRCA replacement program has been going on without results for a few years already).

No change in US investments
BY BILQIS BAHARI - 5 AUGUST 2016 @ 11:00 AM
http://www.nst.com.my/news/2016/08/1...us-investments

SUBANG: The United States does not see any changes in its investment plans in Malaysia even after the country’s presidential election in November.

US Embassy public affairs counsellor Frank Whitaker said Malaysia remained one of the top countries for investments and the US would continue its long-term investments, particularly in Kuala Lumpur and Penang.

“I don’t want to speculate but I don’t see any changes in relationship and investments in Malaysia. Generally, the US election does not affect investments,” he said at the handover of the first C-130 aircraft to US Marine Corps by Malaysian aerospace firm Airod Sdn Bhd. Malaysia is known to be open to foreign direct investments (FDIs) and offers attractive packages to international companies.

According to the Malaysian Investment Development Authority, Malaysia is ranked among the top 10 FDI hotspots in Asia Pacific based on a study done by US-based global information company HIS Inc.

Other top FDI spots in the region include Bangladesh, China, India, Indonesia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Sri Lanka and Vietnam.

Industries in Malaysia which have significant amounts of investments from US-based companies include aerospace, oil and gas, manufacturing and financial services. Global names that have offices and factories in the country include Honeywell, ExxonMobil, Texas Instruments and Intel.

The Naval Supply Systems Command Fleet Logistics Center Yokosuka signed a five-year contract worth US$25 million (RM100 million) with Airod on June 29 last year to service 13 of its KC-130J aircraft. “This partnership allows the US military to maintain its effectiveness and ensure peace and stability in the region,” said Whitaker.

The agreement also represents a significant direct investment in Malaysia’s aerospace defence industry by the US government and demonstrates strengthened US-Malaysia defence trade ties.

Read somewhere that SAAB recently sent their latest Gripen model here for TUDM to re-evaluate - can anyone confirmed this ???

Opportunities in Asean military MRO
BY CHERYL YVONNE ACHU - 19 AUGUST 2016 @ 11:00 AM
http://www.nst.com.my/news/2016/08/1...n-military-mro



SHAH ALAM: CTRM Aviation Sdn Bhd will continue to tap opportunities in the rotary engine maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) market, especially Southeast Asia’s military segment.

DRB-HICOM Defence Technologies Sdn Bhd (Deftech) chief executive officer Datuk Amril Samsudin said CTRM Aviation was well-poised to pitch for rotorcraft MRO contracts in Southeast Asia.

“By looking at the rotary MRO market in Malaysia, we have positioned ourselves as the leading military MRO centre with an original equipment manufacturer presence compared with other third-party MRO centres,” he told Business Times. In April, CTRM Aviation was appointed as MD Helicopters Inc’s exclusive authorised service centre.

The contract is for the support of the first six MD 530G light attack helicopters to be deployed to the army’s aviation regiment. Amril said the deal would have a positive impact on the company’s revenue, with an estimated growth rate of 20 per cent per year. MD Helicopters provides comprehensive end-to-end support for its global fleet of military and commercial customers.

On how much CTRM Aviation was expected to invest in its authorised service centre, Amril said the company was looking at RM5 million in capital investment, mainly for human capital and upgrading of engineering capabilities, which involved technical training by MD Helicopters and purchase of tools and equipment.

As an authorised service centre, CTRM Aviation’s main role is to provide continuous and proximate maintenance support. “The deal will be our entry point into the rotary MRO segment,” he said.

This appointment would also allow CTRM Aviation to offer opportunities to local graduates and engineers to venture into rotary engineering segments, he added.

In 2009, CTRM Aviation was granted to be an authorised service facility by Textron Aviation (formerly known as Cessna Co), which allows the company to be part of its supply chain channel for parts and components and MRO services for all types of Cessna piston-engined aircraft. The company is also the authorised service centre for Diamond Aircraft, as well as authorised distributor for Aircraft Spruce & Specialty Co and Mid Continent Instruments & Avionics.

MAF probes possible leak of info on ESSCom ops
October 1, 2016, Saturday
http://www.theborneopost.com/2016/10...on-esscom-ops/

KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Armed Forces are investigating a possible leak of information on the Eastern Sabah Security Command (ESSCom) security forces’ operations.

Chief of Defence Forces Gen Tan Sri Zulkifeli Mohd Zin said the concerns expressed by Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi on the matter were being taken seriously.

“I hope ESSCom will study and evaluate his views because the kidnapping on Tuesday had so many coincidences.

“The owner of the boat happened to be on the boat.Usually, boat owners won’t go fishing. In our opinion, the kidnappers had received certain information,” he said.

Zulkifeli spoke to reporters after the pinning of ranks for senior MAF officers and handing over of duties at Wisma Perwira here yesterday. Asked whether it was an inside job or one that involved the public, Zulkifeli said this had to be investigated.

“It is impossible for the kidnappers to zoom in on their target right away. I personally believe there may have been a mastermind who planned the kidnap.”

Zulkifeli also reminded the military personnel in ESSCom to look at this possibility.

“We don’t want information leaks or any such thing,” he said.

On Sept 28, Ahmad Zahid spoke of the possibility of certain quarters leaking information on ESSCom and causing kidnappings to be rampant in the area.

The Home Minister had said that such action would give enemies ample time and space to carry out criminal acts against the country.

At 9.30pm on Tuesday, Ruslan Sarapin, 39, was kidnapped by six armed men while fishing with his boat’s 26 crew members. Thirty minutes later, the same armed men robbed a 19-crew fishing boat in the waters off Tungku, Lahad Datu.

At the handing-over ceremony yesterday, Second Division Commander Lt Gen Datuk Fadzil Mokhtar was appointed as the new Joint Forces Commander, replacing retired Lt Gen Datuk Shahrani Mohd Sany. —Bernama

KUALA LUMPUR: Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein will discuss the Sulu Sea security issue with his counterparts from Indonesia and the Philippines today.

He said the issue would be discussed on the sidelines of the Asean Defence Ministers Meeting (ADMM() with the United States in Hawaii.

“I can confirm that when I attend the ADMM meeting in the US tomorrow, there will be a sidelines meeting with my counterparts from Indonesia and the Philippines…to see what is the latest development on the Sulu Sea issue.”

The minister said this to reporters after the ground-breaking ceremony for the Malaysian Armed Forces (ATM) new Wisma Bintara complex project to house unmarried ATM members and those whose stay is unaccompanied by their family.

He said the complex was to replace the old Wisma Bintara that was demolished.

He said the cost of building the complex was estimated at RM45 million, of which RM30 million came from Lembaga Tabung Angkatan Tentera (Armed Forces Fund Board) and Perwira Niaga Malaysia, and RM15 million from the Defence Ministry.

Hishammuddin said the complex would include a 10-storey residential block with 200 units of rooms and 115 covered parking bays.

It would also have facilities such as dining hall and a sports arena, he added. — Bernama

Malaysia buys Navy vessels from China
BY LOKMAN MANSOR - 1 NOVEMBER 2016 @ 9:49 PM
http://assets.nst.com.my/images/arti...ransformed.jpg



BEIJING, China: Malaysia is buying four vessels from China for the Malaysian Navy, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said.

Describing it as one of the highlights of his ongoing official visit to China, Najib said two of the littoral mission ships will be built in China while the other two will be made in Malaysia. “We have not bought anything worthwhile from the Chinese yet in terms of military equipment. This is a landmark decision that we have made.

“If the contract meets the requirements and satisfaction of the Navy, the number of vessels can be increased in future,” he said at a press conference with Malaysian media here. Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein, who was also present, said the details on price of the vessels have not yet been finalised.

“What the Navy has done is transferred allocation from the SLEP (Ship Life Extension Programme) which has not resulted in cost benefit to the Navy, and that saving has been used to buy new ships built by the Chinese.

“So, it’s in the form of creative solution and they will get more value from that allocation,” Najib added. Asked about the Malaysian companies that will be involved in building the vessels, he said this is in the process of being determined, adding that the vessels are to be built within 24 months and will be used to patrol Malaysian waters.

Navy ships bought from China to be built via joint venture

host images

KUALA LUMPUR: Construction of the four Littoral Mission Ships (LMS) bought from China will be a joint venture between Boustead Naval Shipyard Sdn Bhd and China Shipbuilding and Offshore Interna*tional Co Ltd.
Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said the construction would be monitored by his ministry and China’s State Administration for Science, Technology and Industry for National Defence.
The ships, a fast and agile type designed for various operations close to shore, were procured in conjunction with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s official visit to China.
Najib announced the purchase on Tuesday.
“This landmark decision is the first time Malaysia is procuring a defence asset from China,” Bernama quoted Hishammuddin as saying on Facebook yesterday.
He said the first LMS would be completed within 24 months of signing the contract.
The allocation for the purchase is off-Budget, meaning that funding will come from the Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN) through savings achieved by its 15-5 Armada Trans*formation Programme, he said.
Hishammuddin, who is among the Malaysian delegates on the visit, said two LMS would be built in China while the others would be constructed in Malaysia.
Under the transformation programme, the RMN will only have five classes of ships – reduced from 15 – to maintain and manage as a way of saving costs (see graphic).
Hishammuddin said the RMN would decommission old vessels, which are costly to operate and maintain, and channel the savings towards acquiring new ships with the latest equipment.
“Through this transformation, the armada will be revamped without compromising on national defence capabilities,” he added.
RMN chief Admiral Tan Sri Ahmad Kamarulzaman Ahmad Baharuddin said the navy would be more efficient economically and strategically.
He said the 15 classes of vessels (with six ships per class) currently operated by the RMN were built by seven countries.
“The average age of our ships is more than 30 years and we incur very high operational costs.
“At the same time, operational demands and maritime security challenges are increasing, especially in eastern Sabah,” he said yesterday.
He said the majority of threats were piracy, cross-border incursions and militant activities.
“The current fleet is not cost-effective and that is why the LMS is a high-priority project,” Ahmad Kamarulzaman said, adding that the RMN was grateful to the Government for endorsing its 15-5 programme.

Malaysia to seek clarification from China on army asset claims
BY JASTIN AHMAD TARMIZI Saturday, 17 December 2016
http://www.thestar.com.my/news/natio...-asset-claims/



KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia will seek clarification from China on claims it is placing military assets on islands in the South China Sea, said Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein.

The Defence Minister said he would write to his counterpart in China, Minister of Defence and State Councillor General Chang Wanquan, to seek clarification.

Hishammuddin said there were two matters that he viewed as main concerns in the South China Sea – accidental and unintended incidents in the high seas and the increase in militarisation from any country.

“If the reports are true that China is placing military assets on the islands, it would force Malaysia into a ‘pushback’ against China,” he told reporters yesterday after witnessing the handing over of duties of the new Armed Forces Chief at Wisma Pertahanan yesterday.

The claims and images were published recently by Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative, a US-based non-governmental orga*nisation.

“If the images are real, they are a cause for serious concern as they may increase tensions and undermine peace and stability in the region,” he added.

He said he would also write to US Secretary of Defence Ashton Carter to enquire on the legitimacy of the claims.

Reuters reported on Wednesday that China appeared to have installed weapons on the seven artificial islands it is said to have built in the South China Sea, as was reported by a US think tank that cited new satellite imagery.

Earlier, Hishammuddin witnessed the handing over of duties to new Armed Forces Chief Jeneral Tan Sri Raja Mohamed Affandi Raja Mohamed Noor from Jeneral Tan Sri Zulkifeli Mohd Zin.

Saab Malaysia positive over this year's growth in sales of defence, security products
Thursday, 16 March 2017, 5:22 PM

Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Saab Malaysia expects sales of defence and security products here to hit RM100 million again this year.

The Malaysian unit of the Swedish specialist in defence and security said it was confident that a five per cent growth on sales was achieveable based on interests generated by developments in its latest fighter jets, naval combat systems, as well as on the back of defence exhibitions such as the upcoming Lima 2017 in Langkawi.

"We have a target of five per cent growth every year, which is organic growth and we expect to surpass the target for 2016," said Saab Malaysia head Thomas Linden.

He was sharing the company's strategy for Asia Pacific and introduced Saab's range of products ahead of Lima 2017.

Linden, who is also vice president of Saab Asia Pacific, said that global orders for its Gripen fighter jets have been good.

He said proposals for the jets have been submitted to the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF), from the series E (single-seater) and F (twin-seater).

The company has also submitted proposals to the police for communications systems for patrol boats, he added.

Airbus Helicopters Malaysia eyes sales growth from 2018
By FRANCIS DASS - March 10, 2017 @ 3:34pm



Quote:

SUBANG: Airbus Helicopters Malaysia Sdn Bhd expects its sales to pick up significantly from 2018 onwards.

Airbus Helicopters Malaysia vice president of sales Guillaume Dubreuil said that a stronger economy, a stronger ringgit, recovery in oil prices and the renewal of aircraft fleet will benefit the company significantly post-2018.

In the 2018-19 period he said orders for Airbus helicopters is expected to pick up on the back of the above reasons as these combination of factors will result in greater confidence in the economy and a spike in investment activities.

He said this will also result in government agencies having more budget allocations for expenditure, possibly upgrading its military fleet of aircraft.

Dubreuil was speaking to the press at a media event to provide an update and overview of AHM’s presence and partnerships in Malaysia.
