Whats the difference between Rimau and Anoa?
Well, it become a little bit more intense in that area.
Its anyway clear that Malaysia has problems with the borders with more neighbours than RI.
Just a couple of years ago TNI-AU used our Hawks Mk109 and 209 against the OPM and GAM terrorists, we got worldwide (white western world) critics because of that, also from the UK, because we used their airplanes against "our own people, against 'innocent civilians' ".
But now you hear nothing......
^^ hawknya di coinin kali.. :D

hak di negara asalnya aja gak terpenuhi, masa mau menuntut hak ditempat orang.
France says Malaysia can build jets if it buys Rafale

By Agence France-Presse on Wednesday, March 27th, 2013

France dangled Tuesday the possibility of manufacturing its Rafale fighter plane in Malaysia if the nation selected the aircraft as its new combat jet.

“We are considering an assembly line in Malaysia,” said Eric Trappier, chief executive of the Rafale’s builder Dassault Aviation, in a telephone interview from the Langkawi air show in northern Malaysia.

Malaysia is looking to buy 18 combat fighters to replace its ageing Russian Mig-29s, with the Eurofighter, Boeing’s F-18 and Saab’s Gripen also in the running.

The multi-role Rafale, which entered service in the French military in 2001, can carry out air-ground or air-sea attacks, reconnaissance, aerial interception or nuclear strike missions.

France is keen to make its first foreign sale of the Rafale, which has struggled to find buyers, to support a project that has cost tens of billions of euros.

India has selected the Rafale, with most of the 126 fighter jets they plan to buy expected to be built there if the final contract is signed this year as hoped.

Malaysia is keen for its local companies to be involved in the manufacturing, and Trappier said that Dassault has spent considerable effort in lining up local suppliers should the Rafale be selected.

Dassault has already signed deals with Malaysian companies CTRM, Zetro Aerospace and Sapura, he noted.

Two Rafales were at the Langkawi air show to provide demonstration flights.

Chappy Hakim: The South China Sea Pivots and Indonesia

yaaaaaaaah..chappy hakim, gak up to date, apache masih dibawa2.. :eek:hno: !
karena jika jatuhnya indonesia ke tangah china seperti kamboja, maka tantangan buat merangkul kawasan semakin berat. China kasi Missile C-802/C-705, amerika tawarin F-16, China tawarin TD-2000B, amerika kasi maverick+Javelin + IMSS (integrated maritime surveilance system) $57m. gak heran tetangganya mndo sirik :D

It is located about 80 km (50 mi) northwest of Bintulu, on the Continental shelf of Borneo, placing it 80 km from the Malaysian coast and about 1800 km from the Chinese mainland. Geographically, it is south of the Spratly Islands, but it is sometimes grouped with them as part of the international dispute over sovereignty in the South China Sea.
Its so clear that the ownership of the James Shoal belongs to Malaysia (If not Brunei) and absolutely not Komunis Cina or Taiwan, thats such a ridiculous claim. The ASEAN countries should perform joint military exercises around that area as soon as possible (Indonesia-Malaysia-Brunei-Filipina). Or maybe some big scale exercise in the middle of the Spratly Sea together with Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam....

This picture shows the greediness of a country...

Ah, found something.

On August 15, 2013, 6 US-made riverine patrol boats arrived at the Philippine Marine Headquarters. These were manufactured by aluminum vessel manufacturer Silver Ships.
The brand new 40-foot vessels were transferred to the country under the Foreign Military Sales program through which the US government facilitated the procurement of the items for the Navy.
The boats were ordered through FMS in 2011 and manufacturing was completed in 2012. Transport and freight problems, however, delayed the boats' delivery from May 2013 to August 2013.
The boats will reportedly be used in shallow water operations but are also capable of traversing open waters.
Wauw, really? That country is than a heaven for fireweaponlovers....
Di Philipînes orang boleh memiliki senjata tanpa proses lisensi dan izin seperti di Indonesia... Jadi ya wajar saja pemberontak di sana bisa punya persenjataan yang lebih lengkap...
US would ‘help’ Philippines in South China Sea: Navy chief
By Agence France-Presse on Friday, February 14th, 2014

The United States will “help” the Philippines in the event that China occupies disputed islands in the South China Sea, the US Chief of Naval Operations said Thursday.

Admiral Jonathan Greenert also stressed that the US would honour its mutual defence treaty with the Philippines amid a seething territorial conflict with China over the resource-rich waters.

“Of course we would help you. I don’t know what that help would be, specifically. I mean we have an obligation because we have a treaty,” he told students at a state defence college during a visit to Manila.

His remarks — one of the strongest US declarations of support for the Philippines — come as concerns rise that China will attempt to forcefully assert its claim to almost all of the South China Sea.

China’s claim conflicts with that of the Philippines, which has a 1951 treaty with the United States that officials say bind the two partners to defend each other in case of external attack.

The United States has not taken a stand on the conflicting territorial claims over the South China Sea, which also involve Brunei, Malaysia, Taiwan and Vietnam.

Spanish firm wins bidding for supply of fixed wing aircraft
By Alexis Romero (The Philippine Star) | Updated February 28, 2014 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - A Spanish firm was declared winner in the bidding for the supply of three medium lift fixed wing aircraft worth P5 billion.

Defense Undersecretary Fernando Manalo told The STAR a notice of award has been issued to Airbus Military, one of the two firms that submitted offers for the project.

“The notice of award was issued to Airbus last week,” he said. “The contract for the medium-lift fixed wing aircraft is now being prepared.”

Air Force spokesman Col. Miguel Okol said the helicopters will complement their C-130s and allow them to fly more missions.

“As a whole this will enhance the total lift capability of the country,” he said.

The first of the three aircraft will be delivered in August 2015, while the second one will arrive in March 2016. The Air Force is expected to receive the third aircraft in September 2016.

Airbus Military offered to supply C-295 planes for P5.29 billion, lower than the approved budget of P5.3 billion.

The other bidder, PT Dirgantara Indonesia, was disqualified because its offer was not compliant with the technical specifications.

Airbus said the aircraft is the most capable and versatile transport and surveillance aircraft.

“The air assets can carry up to nine tons of payload or up to 71 personnel, at a maximum cruise speed of 260 kt or 480 km/h,” Airbus added.

The medium-lift fixed wing aircraft project landed in the news after some sectors had questioned their quality.

Critics said the planes figured in the 2008 crash that killed 20 people in Poland.

However, Airbus Military said in a statement its C-295 plane has an exceptional safety record and is the market leader in its segment.

“The aircraft is proven in real service and fully meets the standards required by the Department of National Defense of the Philippines,” read the statement.

Airbus Military said human error caused the crash in Poland and had nothing to do with the quality of the aircraft.

“While a C-295 aircraft of the Polish Air Force was unfortunately involved in an accident in January 2008, a full and thorough investigation was undertaken by the Polish government which found no fault with the aircraft,” Airbus said.

Reports published in 2012 said the Czech military had returned “faulty” C-295 planes.

However, Airbus Military said four more C-295s have been delivered to the Czech Republic last year “to full satisfaction.”

“The Czech Republic now has joined Spain, Poland and Finland in using the C-295 for peace-keeping missions,” Airbus Military said.

“While we have undertaken additional upgrades on aircraft post-delivery, as is not unusual with military aircraft, it is incorrect to say that the aircraft were returned to us due to quality issues or failure of tests.”

The C-295 plane is ideal for defense and civic missions like humanitarian actions, homeland security and environmental surveillance, Airbus Military said.

China hosts ASEAN meeting amid South China Sea tensions

China hosted Southeast Asian defense ministers on Friday in an effort to burnish its reputation in a region wary of its territorial ambitions, while expectations grow that the US might directly challenge Chinese claims in the South China Sea.

The meeting in Beijing was the first time China has hosted such a gathering. Four of the countries from the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations taking part have claims to seas and islands in the South China Sea that clash with Beijing's own.

The meeting was expected to skirt such contentious issues as China seeks to leverage such forums to soften its image. Chinese Defense Minister Chang Wanquan did not directly mention the dispute in his opening remarks, pointing instead to the threats that terrorism, radicalism, natural disasters and major accidents pose to the region.

"China desires cooperation and dialogue with ASEAN defense bodies to together safeguard regional peace and stability and join hands to create a good security environment," Chang said.

Reporters were barred from the rest of the gathering and it wasn't immediately clear what issues were raised.

The informal meeting will be followed by the Xiangshan Forum this weekend, at which analysts, military leaders and others from around the globe will discuss Asian-Pacific security, maritime issues and anti-terrorism.

In a speech at a welcoming dinner Friday night, retired top admiral Sun Jianguo told participants the forum would "contribute more insights and ideas into regional peace and stability."

He was followed by Cambodian President Hun Sen, who praised China's regional leadership and said ASEAN was not suited to negotiate with Beijing on South China Sea issues, reflecting China's preferred approach of negotiating with each disputant individually.

"China wants to use these sorts of forums to promote China's views, explain China's policies and improve China's security image," said regional security expert Li Mingjiang of Singapore's Nanyang Technological University.

"Because the meeting is in Beijing, it would be hard for any country to confront China over the South China Sea," Li said. "There's also a lack of solidarity among ASEAN countries over the issue."
